    I worked at Home Helpers part-time

    Pros

    Communication is real big in this agency. They are always calling and trying to fit you into a home. It's easy to get in contact with them when you need them.

    Cons

    I found it difficult to take shifts that were only 2 hours long after having to drive 45min-1hr to the destination. Waste of gas to take short shifts if they are over 25-30min away.

    I worked at Home Helpers part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff & leadership were very helpful. The office staff were very nice. If you couldn't pick up a shift they didn't pressure you to do. They did an exit interview which is good especially if you want your organization to be the best.

    Cons

    Perhaps a better way to get time sheets in on time. Driving to Scottsburg from my home wasn't always feasible.
