    I worked at Griswold Home Care part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is very good compared to other agencies. Ladies in the office are wonderful and are ALWAYS willing to work with you and your scheduling. Could not ask for a better group of ladies. NEVER an attitude. Complete freedom to choose your own schedule.

    Cons

    Not enough clients to choose from in my particular area. BUT plenty of work if willing to travel.

    Advice to Management

    Absolutely none. They know what they are doing and are on top of everything.

    Pros

    Excellent company culture/work life balance. Both the Director and my supervisor who I work closely with are dedicated to offering quality care as well as taking great care of their employees. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting so many diversified clients and caregivers. The training is extremely well rounded, with ongoing training available to take at your leisure. Both the training's and working closely with my supervisor have taught me/are teaching me all about this industry. I feel both prepared and are comfortable with all that my job requires.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    They let me work for 2 months then sent me an email saying there was an audit and the insurance company was questioning my background and I couldn't work until that was sorted out ..that was sent via email instead of getting a call so I could have a better understanding. How did you let me work for 2 months and now this? I figured I was no longer employed since I wasn't able to login to Clear Care anymore. Seems sketchy and dishonest to me!! You could of at least called

    Cons

    No benefits, unprofessional staff, horrible communication, sucky company like the rest

    Advice to Management

    Just leave it to THE professionals

    Pros

    Not many...some caregivers were great to work with...most were not.

    Cons

    Office run incompetently. Not state compliant, not griswold compliant either. Under capitalized and pay to both caregivers and office staff was either late or non existent. Griswold needs to reign in crazy, lazy owners.

    Advice to Management

    Work more efficiently. Stop complaining about staff behind their backs.
