    Pros

    You get the satisfaction of helping mainly geriatric clients. You work alone unless the home has family members there and or involved. This situation allows you to feel more valuable. Yearly raises upon yearly review. You can make almost a living wage, or if experienced, at the bottom of a so-called living wage. They have met the inflation rate or better over the years. But now? We'll find out! That will cost 5.9% for 2021 according to #SS. And it doesn't cover 2022.

    Cons

    Some offices are excellent. Some are the worst on a management and personal basis. CK has gone downhill since being bought by Sodexo. Their website no longer mentions anti-discrimination protection anywhere easy to find on their Careers webpage faqs. So, they don't, except by whatever law forces them not to discriminate. CK contracts with Aetna, which carries one of the worst health insurance offerings, especially for LGBT people. If you want an HSA, it's suitable for investing in the market for a yearly tax deduction if you don't need it for 20 years. Health care will cost you more if you do need it. Most caregivers don't make enough to get health insurance through CK and have any quality of life. CK did not require caregivers' vaccinations during the pandemic to help keep their paying clients alive. They did, and do, require masks and face shields, but that's iffy. People quit over stuff like that, and I suppose some fired. There is a high turnover rate industry average of 63%. Sodexo requires a bachelor's degree for office positions. The lack of a 4-year degree prevents upward mobility for all CK caregivers who do not have paperwork. Most don't. One excellent office person lost their job when the corporation bought the franchise due to not meeting the education requirement. That person started a competing company. CK talks a lot about valuing caregivers. They don't. On purpose. Like all impersonal corporations, they rely on people being good to each other despite not serving their employees more than minimally. And unless they are company needed and desperate, forget overtime hours. This company is not worker-owned. They send out a company share notice or something like that once a year that hasn't been worth studying.. My fault. All that said, this is not the worst Caregiver company. Watch out for those that don't give yearly raises but give you a Christmas bonus that can't make up for the raise. Isn't that sweet?
