    I worked at BrightStar Care full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are wanting to get your feet wet in the medical field, this is one of MANY to do so. Flexibility of hours for those wanting to get back to school, this helped.

    Cons

    You will constantly get texts or calls to cover others, patients are not the priority as you might think, horrible documentation all around, everything is in the "grey" area and never black and white.

    Advice to Management

    Get a hint about what care giving is really about from the employees view point as well as the client's needs. You lose good help when you haven't got a clue.
