    Good pay

    Stop over working your office staff. Careless things happens when a supervisor is trying to manage 200 clients and 100+ homecare aids

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Addus Healthcare part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cannot think of one. The personnel seemed disorganized and distracted. Many interruptions during interview. The personnel were friendly enough, but did not appear to be on top of things. Very chaotic.

    Cons

    Payroll process ineptly run. My first payroll check was wrong and not direct-deposited, therefore I was late getting paid. They had 2 weeks to process my paperwork. Right out of the gate, I am less than impressed with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for qualified hiring and processing personnel.

    Pros

    Ability to set up your own work schedule.

    Cons

    Poor communication between some Supervisors and workers. Too many Chiefs and not enough boots on the ground ability to solve issues,deal with the concerns of workers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more,pass the buck less,Remember this work impacts the Human spirit,not the pocketbook of Management.

    I have been working at Addus Healthcare (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Love working with my people and they have no complaints about me.

    Cons

    Getting the supervisors to return a call to myself or a client is nearly non-existent. Getting staff to help with the quality of care for a client is like pulling teeth. Always sent to voicemail and 99% of the time they do not return the call. Personally, I have repeatedly told them i am open for hours...The website says they are hiring for immediate employment, yet I can't get another 4 or 5 hours a day. No respect for a worker who always does their job with minimal complaints or call ins.

    Advice to Management

    This office needs more help. Supervisor is always out doing intakes. I was in office one particular day, the supervisor was in according to the in/out magnet board as well as visably sitting at her desk. A worker who called was told supervisor was out of the office for the day.
