    I have been working at Visiting Angels full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They do their best to find shifts around my available work hours. I appreciate the staff and their attitudes!

    Cons

    It's not their fault, but home care hours change a lot. Still, it's worth it to care for one or two people at a time, instead of 15 or 20 in a nursing home.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Visiting Angels full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy hiring, no references called, no prior experience or training needed

    Cons

    No work life balance; you're expected to be on call at all times, and if they change your schedule is up to you to check every hour and never make plans for yourself. According to management they can change your schedule as much as they need to without ever telling you, and you have to adhere to it, regardless of when they change it. In trouble for being 15 minutes late to a client when they changed the appointment time while I was driving on my way to see them at their previously scheduled time.

    You're expected to stop everything if the schedule changes, making a second job or school impossible.

    They also make agenda perform work that LEGALLY they cannot do!! HHAs do not do diapers, baths, or hoyer lifts per guidelines set by the Texas Board of Nursing and board of Licensing. They all untrained staff to perform CNA skills without training or certification, and if a patient is hurt, that agent is legally liable. When I confronted the office about this, they started that they weren't subject to the nursing laws and safety regulations. They don't care if you are hurt doing your job.

    Advice to Management

    I will be filling formal complaints about the violations of work and safety codes with the board of nursing, the board of licensing, and the Texas workforce.

    I worked at Visiting Angels full-time

    Pros

    Administration is amazing. The best company I have ever worked for. They make sure the needs of the clients are met and that caregivers' needs are met as well. No pressure to take cases that don't fit your schedule. I felt valued at this company. The pay is not bad I made around 11 to 13 an hour depending on the complexity of the case. They pay on time, they pay mileage and differentials for holidays. I highly recommend this company.

    Cons

    No benefits, but that is true for all home health care businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing the amazing job you do. And keep you care coordinator (JP for privacy) for as long as possible. She is absolutely fantastic in all she does.

    I worked at Visiting Angels part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    there are no good reasons to work there

    Cons

    The organizations hires people who are completely uneducated for those particular positions/ a caregiver needs extensive training as well as some medical background, they just hire anyone off the street. I strongly advise people to not hire them to take care of your elderly parents!

    I worked at Visiting Angels full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Limited supervision, great clients, good Care Staff

    Cons

    Management/Owners need education on professional conduct. Work way too much overtime for base pay. This goes for a Care Manager position

    Advice to Management

    Up the salary, if case managers are required to work 24/7, 7 days a week. Because at the end of the day when you total up the amount of time you have put in over the last week and weekend, it comes out to be be less than minimum wage. So don;t let the hourly wage fool you. This is based on the Visiting Angels in Mount Vernon, WA only.

    Pros

    Wonderful caring company who cared about my well being and my clients. I worked for the Brighton Colorado office and they are wonderful people. They worked with my schedule for 2 years.

    Cons

    Non that I am aware of, they are wonderful to their employees. Wish I could have made more money. The only problem I had was the clock in/out. The recorded messages wouldn't allow me to override some of my responses.

    Advice to Management

    Continue your employee support and client support.
