    I have been working at Right at Home part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    This job is very flexible with the availability you provide.

    Cons

    Few hours, low wages, short shifts, management is not always on the same page, often "convinced" to take shifts that you did not schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the supplies needed to provide in home care. I have had this job for several months and have had to use medium, large, and extra large gloves when I need extra small or small gloves.

    I have been working at Right at Home full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I have never had a client that I did not enjoy to work with. But, it is not worth having to deal with such a horrible company.

    Cons

    The pay is not enough for what you will be doing. They charge the clients around $22
    Hourly and we only get $9. The women at the office lie and scheme to cover themselves and don care to throw you under the bus for no reason. And they will make it extremely difficult to even try to request a day off or anything. They will tell you "if you don't want to work that day then I can remove you from the schedule". Even the top person has told me "either you work or someone else will come in" and that was when I had to take days off because my mother had a heart attack. They have no sympathy and only care about the money they're getting. They also will find any reason to not give you your yearly raise. They told me "you requested days off and did not work the whole year so you don't qualify" even though I worked very hard, was never late and never had a complete or been removed from a client. Horrible company. Other companies will pay you more and treat you with respect you deserve, not right at home. Lastly, they do not offer ANY insurance or 401k. They pay you as little as possible and that's all they give you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to know employees and show you care. The office and upper management is the reason I will never reffer Right at Home to any one I know. Pay employees what they're worth (more than minimum wage). They are the ones that are a walking billboard for this company. Treat them bad and they will make you look bad.

    You have to fight for any salary increases you get and they do not know the Labor Laws at all. Do not compensate well.

    You meet many great people because you go out and meet your clients.

    Do not compensate for work done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to learn how to raise people as time progresses, there over a yr and never got a raise. No benefits at all and expected to work on call a lot without compensation. The owner talks in circles as to confuse you.....sad.

    Pros

    I am able to engage my clients emotional and be able to bring comfort to them. The ability to make a difference in their lives.

    Cons

    There is disconnect between management and caregivers. You get connected to the clients and it is very difficult part ways most of the times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should engage employees to discuss issues that would be of mutual benefit to both parties.
