CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – December 14, 2016
It was a great learning experience. But they would never let you work in the state that your from. The hardest part of the job was being away from family for months at a time. They would never give you a day off, even if you were sick with a 100 degree plus temp they would still make you go to work. They didnt care about the residents or the employees. The most enjoyable part of my experience was getting to meet new people and traveling.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant/ Med Tech (Current Employee) – Nebraska – January 11, 2017
I love this job I like to meet new people I have made some amazing new friends along the way and I know I am staying with AACO for a long long time. The hardest part is walking into a new place not know the people or the staff but you get use to it. The best part is getting to know new people and the staff I have learned so much since I started with AACO
Never worked for the company (Former Employee) – Never worked for the company – May 5, 2016
If you ask them to remove your phone number from their records because you don't want to work for them, they won't. I have asked them to take me off their call lists at least a dozen times and I am still getting calls. For those who want to work for this company, this is good; however, if for some reason you don't want to work for this company it becomes harassment! They call any day of the week (weekends included) and at all different times.

The most enjoyable part of my job was taking care of the residents and having them tell me stories about their lives, and then having me tell them about where I come from because I travelled very far, and of course thy wanted to know about our Pro Football team that is located here.
I was able to travel in different states
not enough hours when I'm told there are plenty of shifts available
Staffer (Current Employee) – Lynnwood, Wa – October 16, 2013
Its a great company to work for, the hours are good always 40 hours a week. The thing I don't like but knew going into the job that I could be working over night. I am currently working over nights and I do not enjoy it. My coworkers are nice and helpful. Management on the other hand, this is a personally own company so the manager owns the company and runs the company with out being at the job site. I feel a manager or owner of a company should always be in the office at least once a day. I have gone two week with out seeing her at the job site. She also has a hard time with remembering days off and is always calling last minute for a schedule change.
Traveling agency to facilities throughout the United States, Very extensive travel involved.
CNA/Caregiver (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – April 26, 2013
Traveling agency, all fees for certification and traveling expenses are your responisibility up front with employer reimbursement for gas and mileage and certification renewal fees only. All continuing education fees are your responsibility with no reimbursement from employer. Very hard to get work if you are not willing to travel extensively. A typical day is traveling to assignments and working cold not knowing residents or staff. I have learned extensive communication and interpersonal skills. Co-workers are facility staff which you usually do not know. The hardest part of this job is going in cold to the facilties and hospitals without knowing the residents nor the staff. The most enjoyable part of this job is the experience with the variety of patients that you will take car of.
mileage and gas reimbursement
meal breaks deducted regardless on whether you take or not, continuing educational fees at your expense.
