    I have been working at BrightStar Care full-time

    Pros

    Clients and Employees are treated like family. Office staff goes out of their way for employees, providing the work you are looking for and constantly showing appreciation for hard work and positive client feedback. Clients are wonderful. High standards of care are demanded by the company. Opportunities for overtime.

    Cons

    A client passing who've you have grown close to is always difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Keep sending out employee appreciations. They mean so much and BrightStar does it more than any other employer that I've had.

    I have been working at BrightStar Care part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I like there pay schedule they pay every Friday and they also have direct deposit. If you like working by yourself with one patient this is the ideal job for you.

    Cons

    The downside is low pay for the amount of experience you have and benefits aren't accessable no medical or 401k and no miliage. There are times where they forget to give you your overtime. You have to check your check to see if you've been paid correctly. This happens several times. I think they need a new person in that position to make sure you get the amount of hours you've worked on your check. It's a very big inconvenience especially if a bill comes through in your account and you expect your pay and you eventually will have a insufficient fee you get from their mistake.

    Advice to Management

    I would elaborate on how the pay works
