  3. "Consider"

    4.0
    Former Employee - Community Living Specialist 

    I worked at Easterseals part-time

    Pros

    Working at Easterseals as a caregiver gives you the comfort of working in a home and removes the stress of constant orders and micromanaging. Your weekly schedule is provided and so is the client's weekly itinerary so you have your work cut out for you. Laid-back work environment (depending on the house and supporting staff).

    Cons

    Managers aren't always available to answer your calls or troubleshoot problems as they arise. Weekend managers are sometimes unresponsive and unavailable to cover for staff during emergencies, despite claiming that that's what they're there for.
