I have been working at Senior Helpers part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

For the person who likes to work independently, does not need full time work, or benefits, and just wants some extra income, it's not a bad place to work. The people are nice and I think they try to do their best for the clients and employees. They really don't promise their employees more than they can deliver. I am saying this for Salem only.

Cons

They make sure you stay part time, but that is pretty clear from the beginning. Work will sort of come and go - also clear from the beginning. There are no benefits. As with all in home care, the family dynamics of a client can get complicated, so you aren't just dealing with the client and the companies expectations. Senior Helpers is a for profit franchise, so although there is good intent here in Salem, they are forced to try and balance care with making a profit. But this is a systemic problem in health care in the US, not just Senior Helpers.

Advice to Management

I really wasn't there long enough to make any intelligent remarks.
