    I have been working at MedOptions full-time (More than 3 years)


    I have been with MedOption for over 4 years and have found it to be the best employer I've had.
    Caring for Seniors in a Nursing Home is very rewarding. I am always disheartened to read reviews that are hurtful and misleading and detracts from the work I do.
    I have a great Monday - Friday schedule with no on call. I have time to refresh on the weekends!


    Too many emails !! Use a newsletter instead.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at MedOptions.


    I jumped through all the hoops. Did a phone screen, an hour long interview, a personality test, a background check, and then never heard back. My background came out clean and I couldn't even get a courtesy call back.
