    Pros

    Unique..'family oriented' type atmosphere. Down to earth people. Good opportunity to meet alot of nice people. Opportunity for growth in furthering your knowledge (Hospice, medicare, etc.)

    Cons

    Choppy...unreliable..and inconsistent hours, training/infomation supplied by administration, and job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent and united in what is said to staff, across the board. Be accountable in not being so quick to blame or judge staff for not meeting your expectations or being a disappointment to you without first trying to look at their perspective as well. There is always two sides....and typically things run 'down hill' more than they run 'uphill'. There is one administrative member, specifically, who has been seen and heard publically belittling/raising her voice at staff she feels dominant over, she does this as a defense mechanism rather than being accountable or honest when she makes mistakes / errors.

    Pros

    A chance to take part in helping others overcome fear of dying. To take care of those who are at the end-stage of life with the dignity they deserve.

    Cons

    Very poor management from Corporate headquarters. They expect instant results and in sales that's not realistic. it might help if the managers conducted classes on handling the family's grief, how to work with fueding family members, and give us time to get a territory up and running. Death is a difficult industry to work in and it takes time to work with the heavy burden of grief that most people feel, espcially when it's a child who has passed away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support us, help us become better, with positive feedback rather constant negative remarks. There's more to this field than just the bottom line. We're dealing with people who need help coming to terms with the loss of a loved one.
