Temporary stepping stone
Clerk (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYAugust 11, 2015
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Lack of training/management, Annual salary, Etc.
I was very excited to start my career in the healthcare field. I was told I was a temp employee on my job interview which I did not mind and later found out I was not. Changing plans on a daily basis seems to be a trend in this office. AmeriCare as a company seems to "have it together", but the managers/supervisors of specific departments DO NOT.

New employees, do not expect to be provided proper training, you will be thrown into the cage with little knowledge and understanding.

If you are looking for a temporary job with friendly coworkers in a nice neighborhood this is the place for you. If you are looking for a place to grow with and are looking for a healthy salary, this is not the place for you.

Employees are overworked and underpaid
Certified Medication Assistant (Former Employee), Saint Peters, MOJuly 19, 2015
Pros: Health Benefits
Cons: Short/No breaks. Underpaid
The only good thing about this company is the people you care for. The management team is very rude and doesn't work well together. A lot of things are swept under the rug. This is suppose to be a assistant living but is ran like a nursing home. The residents aren't taken care of properly and the staff is treated poorly. You're given vacation time but have to beg to use it.

fun co-workers horrible bosses
Certified Medication Aide (Current Employee), Washington, MOAugust 20, 2014
Pros: free meals and fun people to work with
Cons: expensive/bad insurance, hardly any breaks, management plays favorites
Our typical day at work goes by fast because there is always so much commotion going on. Management likes to play favorites and isn't very flexible with scheduling unless your in school. The companies motto is family first and I have only experienced one time where they let my family come first. On the plus side my co-workers is a great bunch of people to work with and we all see each others point of views and usually agree with one another. But we can never get management to see our issues or address our issues.

Conveniently located workplace in Brooklyn with that is not stressful.
Title- Intake Coordinator for ACF Department (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYJune 3, 2014
Pros: office area is near to a parking lot and a shopping mall.
Cons: work environment offers limited options for career growth.
Americare is a fascinating place to work in Brooklyn. Although, there is a friendly atmosphere, I learned it provides limited room for growth in the company. Management is cordial and relaxed. My co-workers appear to be friendly and we work well together as a team. Hardest parts of job are limited options for overtime and career growth.The most enjoyable parts of job are kind co-workers and convenient Brooklyn workplace location near Kings Plaza Mall.
