I worked at Amedisys part-time (More than 3 years)
I worked in Central Florida. My experience was positive overall. I learned everything I now know about home health care. I think that Amedisys supports employee education, though the motivation to advance is primarily self-driven. Amedisys had a well-integrated and responsive IT interface; I experienced one unplanned, corporate-wide information systems downtime during my tenure. The core staff, those co-workers with whom I worked most often, was reliable and supportive. Management was supportive and understanding during my separation. The corporate director of the business line that covered my Nursing specialty was reachable and approachable, by phone or by email, for insight and guidance regarding my focused fieldwork.
My experience with onboarding at Amedisys was terse, at best. There was little explanation of policy/procedure related to time and expense recording/recompense. I learned most of these policies by finding and reading the information on the company intranet. There are few regular Amedisys clinicians in my Nursing specialty. As a result, I gleaned the majority of my focused learning from my own self-directed searching through corporate policies and procedures; I had to find my own answers about specifics of my clinical practice with the company. In my tenure at Amedisys, I witnessed a high turnover rate for RN/LPN staff. This fact was unsettling for staff coherence and teambuilding, communication, and consistency in client care. I think that certain focal points about cost containment were promoted at the expense of comprehensive client care.
Advice to Management
My advice: determine and address root cause analysis regarding Nursing staff turnover; maintain the priority of safe and effective client care, balanced appropriately against cost containment measures.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Amedisys (Orlando, FL) in August 2015.
I submitted my resume online for a part time Business Office Specialist position and filled out an online job application. I received a phone call within a week to come in for an interview. They did not prescreen me over the telephone. The person interviewing me was very friendly and the interview lasted about 45 minutes. The person gave a lot of information about the company, their local office and some of the job duties. It was a conversational style interview with not many job interview type questions at all.
