I have to say the office staff were very nice over all. But my supervisor never got back to me on several occasions so I found that disturbing. I tried on several occasions to get a hold of him and he was not very professional as far as I am concerned. I started this job brand new to the field and fresh out of another field of work for many years. I was paid a lot more in my previous job but moved so started something a little different. I did have experience in a similar field as this. I found this job to be very scattered in hours and you will be driving from place to place for $2 each place you drive to and from. It would not be worth it if you have to drive more than 5 minutes per place as the wear and tear on your vehicle is not great. The other thing I found that I was not overly thrilled about is the time that you have with each client, is not enough to do anything other than personal care for the individual. It is very rushed and I found that to be difficult as I thought the job was more about helping the clients in other ways, but it was mostly bathing them. There were a few who you could make a lunch for and light housekeeping but 90% of the time was bathing/pere care and dressing. I realized I am not as flexible as I used to be so this was not as physically easy for myself to do. I only lasted a short while at this job but found a new respect for the people that do it. I truly believe that the pay should be over $20 an hour for anyone that does this job. I can tell you that the clients for the most part were very nice people and very welcoming. Bayshoreplus... - especially the girl that hired was very accommodating. They do pay for the training and they do have part time and full time benefits. You do have to pay out of your pay check for part of this package but it is fairly reasonable. I must say, I didn't like how if a client cancelled within a short period of time, you lose the pay for that hour or whatever time was scheduled. I was shadowing another worker and out of her 5 hours scheduled, two of those hours were cancelled and she and I lost that. I get it that stuff happens but I found this difficult to imagine if you needed a regular job and hours to pay your bills and your day hours change just like that. I believe that if you want to have a successful amount of hours to be full time, you must open your hours of work from early morning until bed time unless you work in an nursing home like setting. Over all, like all places it has it good and bad. The people make it most worth while.moins
Clients, office staff and choice of hours
Scattered non reliable hours, mostly bathing people/ pare care, my supervisor, too long of down time in between clients at times, distance to drive from client to client at times
This agency kept hiring staffs but can't even give enough hours to existing employees to make enough for a living. They make you drive to the other end of the city just for a 2-3 hour shift that is not worth it. Pay is very low and no mileage pay.
I loved everything about working here except for all the years of driving. You have to work day and night most times to get an eight hr day in by that i mean split shifts. Last min call ins. Great management. Great employees. Awesome bonuses and benefits. Good wage. Not much for travel. You have to cover a large area to get enough clients
