    I worked at Home Instead Senior Care full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed getting to pick and chose my preferred clients and then get to have them on a regular basis. Home Instead does strive to make good matches between their clients and caregivers.

    Cons

    There are NO benefits offered and it is difficult to avoid private insurance on the salary given. Not recommended for woman with families due to the lack of benefits

    Advice to Management

    NONE! Vacancies are filled at the Owner's discretion and there is no official advertisement or advisement of office openings.

    Pros

    Tons of training, kind staff, really rewarding and fulfilling job

    Cons

    You're only eligible for a 50 cent raise after you've worked there a year. They pay the bare minimum even though the clients pay a TON.

    Advice to Management

    Minimum wage isn't enough to live off of.

    I have been working at Home Instead Senior Care full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule/Great Clients/Good Training and Management

    Cons

    LOW pay/Not Enough Hours or Clients

    Advice to Management

    Increase base pay to at least $10! This company pays their home health aides/cna's the lowest. There are several other companies that pay $10- $11. It's disappointing to have great clients but you just aren't compensated enough to pay your bills.

    great experience with psychology and medical care

    poor pay rate

    Treat your employees better. They do far more intense, emotionally, mentally, and physically exhausting work than you ever do in your home franchise offices.

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

    Pros

    Supportive and helpful staff. You can turn down or accept clients. The care coordinator is willing to work with caregivers and problem solve. They offer opportunities to earn ceu's free of charge and also give classes if you can fit them into your schedule. Many of the clients are very nice.

    Cons

    Low pay and very infrequent raises. Can never count on hours. You feel starved out. They are always hiring even though they don't give their faithful employees hours. Undependable.

    Pros

    You can choose your days and hours of availability, management employees are down to earth, so you dont have to be nervous around them.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible for the work, they offer 10 gas cards if they really need you, If you have a resident that don't need transportation, you still have to have your own car and insurance, you can't get dropped off at work. So to my ladies that dont drive, they wont hire. The little money u make will go on your insurance, its just askn to much for so little money.

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving out gas cards and shirts and pay 2 to 3 bucks more, maybe your staff wont mind helping out. And if your resident dont need the company for transportation, stop making your employee have to drive, as long as they come to work and transporting isnt part of that clients job description, if they need to catch the bus or whatever, let them do so.
