    Pros

    Great homecare experience. You really help patients.

    Cons

    To much emphasis on sales. In attempts to reach quotas. you feel to much pressure to sale rather then heal.

    Advice to Management

    specify areas served. Supply company cars for RT,s. Also better security some areas served arent safe for female staff to serve alone. Some rural areas may not get cell phone reception.

    Pros

    - Uncapped commissions (requires detailed follow up to actually get paid)
    - Flexible work schedule
    - Good Entry Level Sales Experience
    - Paid Holidays
    - Minimal Supervision

    Cons

    Territory placement can make or break you. This company mandates internal competition within their monopoly, so you are calling on the same accounts, selling the same services, the only true variance is where your center is located. Management is not supportive (starting at the center level and marching all the way up the corporate ladder), they demand results, but can not offer any feedback on solutions to obtain these goals. i came to my manager on multiple occasions to brainstorm on ways to improve my numbers, and the only advice he could ever give was, 'just get out there and sell".

    Advice to Management

    Please take the time to not only train your employees but also continue to train and support them throughout their employment. An essential duty of management is to actually manage your employees, not just the business. Take the time to create positive relationships with them and work with them to constantly improve and become the best.
