    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.

    I have been working at Addus Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun people to work for. Better pay than other agencies in town. My clients are so sweet and amazing. They have a union.

    Cons

    Maybe less paperwork and less driving. I worked for a different company that had click in and out with a phone. Ad you could write your reports in it too, so you didn't have to fill out as much paper.

    I worked at Addus Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Nothing. Ziltch. Nada. Zero. No no no just no. This company claims to help but they just leech of government funding and they are frauds.

    Cons

    Lied to me about pay. Said i was going to make 13.50 an hour but was only 11.35 on my paycheck. They like to find excuses to not pay you for your work like "we lost your time logs" and such. There are days youll be driving across town to bring a patient to an appointment with no other work. The cost of gas is going to be more than what they pay you back. Youll get patients who lock you out and wont answer the door. You wont get paid for that or the gas driving there. Youll get some friendly ones, but most hate addus as much as you and will take it out on you. Scheduling problems. Not enough hours. They lie to you and patients and sign patients up for more services than they need. Pretty sure this company is apart of some medicare fraud. Theres alot of sketchy things going on here. Oh and be prepared to sign waivers saying your not allowed to sue them. Thats when you know its time to run. Druggys like this place cause they dont do drug testing! Patients should also avoid using addus if they can because they deserve better.

    Advice to Management

    Shut this place down

    Pros

    Flexible hours and times some nice clients

    Cons

    When they say "we will call you back" that's a joke and if you want to receive a paycheck on time or millage rembrsment do the hold your breath on that have worked for the company for a month now and still no signs or answers to where my first payment check is no one else can or will give you a straight anwser

    Advice to Management

    Return phone calls emails you guys do absolutely nothing you say your going to do always dragging there feet or avoiding the subject people live paycheck to paycheck and can't go without but that's ok to you and for you as long as your pockets get lined when they are supposed to screw everyone else who works to live entertainment your pockets

    Pros

    Dental and vision are affordable.

    Cons

    Bottom line driven. Employees are not valued. Treated more like plug and play with little training. Very unstable. Policy changes not thought through.

    Advice to Management

    Need to value employees. Consider consequences of policy changes. What works in one region does not work in all regions.
