I worked at A Place for Mom full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Helping families get through crises

Cons

The job of an advisor was misrepresented. I was nothing more than a phone sales person. The leadership is constantly on your back about making people move. Why would I make an elderly person and their family do something they're not ready to do?

Advice to Management

Get real. You're working with some of the most frail and vulnerable people on the planet. Seniors are not a commodity.

    I worked at A Place for Mom full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None, maybe to fill up resume space

    Cons

    Too many to list. I had the nastiest group leader, completely condescending and rude which made for a most unpleasant environment. I was compelled by the mission, but in practice you desperately stalk people via phone and try to "advise" them, or steer them to where you get commissions. No one follows up with you. It's a ridiculous concept. 85% of my class was gone when I gave up after a few months. 10 cents a mile for travel. That may not buy me water, never mind gas. Someone will profit from all this, rest assured it will not be YOU.

    Advice to Management

    Hire real reps and pay them hourly. I worked for China wages and was a slave to my desk.

    I have been working at A Place for Mom full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good product. Company has strong branding. Growth should be positive but greed and poor direction dominates this company.

    Cons

    Astronomical quotas. Impossible to make
    the kind of money that was promised. People at top are out of touch with sales people.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who have been there a long time and know the history and grow with calculated wisdom.
