    I worked at Kindred Healthcare part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The clients are usually very kind and grateful. The ladies who work at the desks and the nurses are very sweet and understanding most of the time.

    Cons

    Hours change constantly with the change of clients, so income is never steady.

    Advice to Management

    I would have appreciated more than $1/hour for traveling. At maximum hours, I was given $15/week while my gas was $50/week.

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Front line staff is fantastic. Hands down best group of social workers, aides, nurses, chaplains and volunteer professionals I’ve ever worked with. We take care of each other like a family.

    Cons

    Yelling, slamming doors, name-calling, unnecessary and unkind comments made to staff during meetings. Constant inter-office gossip in regards to employees’ personal matters including health conditions, finances and relationships. ED and MCP are ineffective and seem to exist only to make themselves feel more powerful by belittling other staff members. Toxic and hostile work environment. Unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to your employees when we tell you about our concerns. Life isn’t fair, every job is hard, people aren’t perfect, I get it. That being said, it takes a great deal of effort on our part to manage the hateful attitude from office staff and provide excellent care to our patients and their families. We try (and we succeed) because we truly care about the people we serve and have chosen careers in hospice for a reason. Our patients get the best care because we are committed to our profession. However, with the job we do it can be tough to balance career, family and self-care under the best of circumstances. Please help us by finding a way to resist the abuse we endure from our “management “ staff so we can continue to do what we love without crumbling under the negativity directed at us on a daily basis. You have been aware of this for YEARS, and nothing has changed.
