    I have been working at Altercare Integrated Health Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The is a family atmosphere working within this company. I have worked for them for 10 years and have been promoted when I have become interested in more challenging tasks. They have great heath and life insurance as well as the 401K

    Cons

    One of the cons that I think this company has is that their PTO time and sick time are one and the same. If you have even a short illness you have to use your PTO time towards it because they don't accrue sick time.

    Advice to Management

    PTO and sick time should be separated so that when you are sick you can rest and heal while using sick time that you have worked for and when you are on vacation you should be able to rest and relax making for a better employee.

    I have been working at Altercare Integrated Health Services full-time

    Pros

    Provided STNA classes and paid for test.

    Cons

    Low pay, extremely understaffed, play favorites and throw good employees under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. Treat people right. Pay better and maybe so many people won't call off and leave you hanging. Also, don't play buddies with employees that do little to no work while on shift and cater to them while taking advantage of good aides.

    I worked at Altercare Integrated Health Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Staff is great, friendly and first to offer help

    Cons

    Low pay and very little room for raises. Management will sit and listen to your concerns, but won't look into correcting them.

    Advice to Management

    Altercare needs to be competitive with wages as they post in their listings.

    Pros

    Healthcare benefits and uniform allowance.

    Cons

    So many cons. Uncaring management, low staffing levels, poor pay, unmanageable workloads, high turnover rates... This place has just gone so far down hill I don’t see it ever returning to what it once was.

    Advice to Management

    Find a new career path, this one isn’t for you!

    Pros

    The residents are great, flexible hours. Free STNA classes

    Cons

    Lack of staffing, over worked, low pay. No breaks , no lunch, cant take one when there's no one to relieve you. HR is a joke, promises made but never kept. No OT ever

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you have enough staff on duty. When you promise a specific wage pay it, dont give the excuse well it will be retroactive....when???

    Pros

    Decent wages and caring staff.

    Cons

    Expected to provide quality care without the needed amount of staff, expected to work constantly on your own time,

    Advice to Management

    Improve staffing levels allowed. Higher PPD needed to adequately care for patients.

    I worked at Altercare Integrated Health Services part-time

    Pros

    Most of my coworkers were a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Right before I quit, they slashed everyone's hours, meaning you had to do the same amount of work with several fewer people. Then they gave us all more work to do.
