    I worked at Self Opportunity full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have always enjoyed working with elderly. I was raised to respect my elders. I love to listen to the stories they love to tell. I feel privileged to get to care for people toward the end of there life. I feel like i am the one that really benefits. I get to be their last best friend in many cases. I always take the love and wisdom they offer me with me.

    Cons

    It is heavy on ur heart loosing people u love again and again, but knowing they are with god and what i said above brings me comfort and drawing strength from my god keeps me going.

    Advice to Management

    The family i worked with on my last home health job were loving, welcoming, and supportive. They took care of arranging all other medical professional visits. They made sure i always had the supplies to care for their mother and grandmother properly. My only grievance is there should have been better communication. Also, unrealistic expectations on hours for one care taker.

    I worked at Self Opportunity full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The best thing on this job is you are not overly supervised. You can work at your own pace and make money. The company is open to new advise from employees.

    Cons

    You always have to chase profits and seek best offers for better products. You can be isolated sometimes if you do not seek help. Because you work at your own pace one can lose sight of the bottom line which is buying the best product for the least money.

    Advice to Management

    Setup individual meetings to help new employees and nurture them into future buyers that can make good and sound conclusions. Put less emphasis on profit but training.

    I have been working at Self Opportunity full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Awesome Flexible schedule. Get to spend time with my children and can sign them up for awesome activities and fun stuff. Can work more hours to raise my pay.

    Cons

    I have to work constantly, no benefits, paying taxes at the end of the year, no job security. Going back and forth if a regular 9-5 job wouldn't be better.

    Advice to Management

    Need to diversify clients. Have too many eggs in one basket can be a disaster in the making. The client has less work can mean bills dont get paid.

    Pros

    At first it was great

    Cons

    Management doesn't have a clue. They play stupid games which doesn't include everyone.
    They have a draft based on numbers which always benefits the new people. Then they hired t to many people

    Advice to Management

    Worry about the sales people instead of coming up with stupid games to play

    I have been working at Self Opportunity (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get to help elderly in the years of which they need/require SOME help not all the time you get to hear stories of when they were a kid and how much has changed me personally I like that type of thing.

    Cons

    your almost always on call. not a whole lot of down time if you will. but again I don't mind that cause again your helping some who needs/requires it and at some point it might become easier to be their live-in caregiver? but that will be between you and your client.

    Advice to Management

    you need to be attentive to ALL your clients but NOT over baring. because remember your not the one they see everyday their care-take is. me personally I would try and meet with the client by yourself that way the will feel more free to speak their mind. since I do it on my own I do other things.
