    I have been working at Almost Family part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can choose the clients & times you want to work.

    Cons

    No time off. If a family member dies or you want a vacation you take it off without pay. Office staff get two weeks paid vacation from the day they are hired. Clients get no care when you are off.
    No raises. Have been with company for 3 almost 4 years & have yet to get pay raise.
    Take on extra clients or difficult & not told thank you or anything.

    Advice to Management

    The Home Health Aids are the ones out making the money. Something needs to be done so staff will want to stay. You can go work at a gas station or McDonald's for more than what we get paid.

    Pros

    I've been with this company for over 3 years and I absolutely love almost family and the staff. There is no other private duty company that can make you feel like you are part of a team!!! The office staff has always gone above and beyond to not only make sure I am happy but my patients and their families. So, whether you are a potential employee or a patient, Almost Family is the best choice for your future!

    Cons

    Field staff does not have PTO but they are very flexible and willing to work with you so you can have the necessary time off needed.

    Pros

    Competitive wages, excellent benefits, room to expand and grow within the company.

    Cons

    Staffing has been a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that all members of the team are well aware of their role. Recruiting for field staff seems to be a problem.

    Pros

    The people are amazing. The environment is very inviting and welcoming. It's like you know this is where you are supposed to be.

    I have been working at Almost Family full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great co-workers, understanding managers, training opportunities, rewards and perks throughout the year, and financial rewards are comparable or more than other agencies.

    Cons

    Have been some difficulties with various issues due to reliance on paper records and handwritten paperwork can be tedious.

    Advice to Management

    Often times some of the field staff seem frustrated due to long drive times and increasing paperwork. I don't know if there are further incentives or rewards to help them feel more motivated and less overworked and stretched.

    Pros

    Very employee friendly company, CEO very humble and does not hesitate to let you know when things are going great!

    Cons

    Could use more personal recognition for a job well done. Don't get me wrong they recognize the branch but personal recognition for those that go the extra mile.

    Advice to Management

    Competitive Pay with all disciplines including your managers.
