This employer is not a good one to work for
Branch Manager (Former Employee), Lafayette, CANovember 3, 2014
I worked a full 40 + hours per week and was on-call 24-7 for this company, but was not compensated correctly for working overtime. I was with this company for over 2 years and I went out on maternity leave due to a problematic pregnancy but continued to stay in contact with my employer, only to discover that he had terminated my employment without my – more... knowledge. Once I confronted this employer about it he offered me a position back. But having to deal with my medical benefits being cut due to him terminating me without my knowledge I chose not to go back and work for him. – less

I had several clients whom I enjoyed caring for
Home Health Aide (Former Employee), Highland, INOctober 10, 2014
Pros: my clients
Cons: lack of support from supervisors
My clients were wonderful although, there were many challenges between staff and management. It was always something going on between staff and supervisors. It made the job uncomfortable.

Productive and fun workplace with opportunities to improve skills and knowledge.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Mill Valley, CAJune 28, 2014
Pros: learning new skills, professionalism, quality care
Cons: distance from home, long commute
A typical day at work involves providing one-on-one health care to clients in their private home environment and maintain interdisciplinary communication. I learned wound care and treatment management skills with a variety of geriatric clients. I also learned to provide effective Foley care and sympathetic hospice care. I managed clients' medications – more... and nursing care plans. I worked closely with my co-workers in order to achieve continuity of care for all clients, even though we work independently per shift. The hardest part of the job was the emotional involvement and investment with my clients and their families when clients passed away since I provided long-term care. However, I still enjoy the relationships I developed with the clients and their families. – less

not a good company
Care Giver (Former Employee), roseville,caMarch 21, 2014
Pros: great clients.
Cons: bad boss's, and bad "rules" that can change how long or short your hair is
Most of the clients were awesome. I cared for the people i helped. the bad thing about this company is the people behind the desks..... i had to chop all my hair off to keep up with the " hair off the neck" rule for them to fire me 2 weeks later, and im NOT a short haired kind of girl. then they set me up to be fired telling me i had no clients then – more... the next day saying im late for work, and fired me for it. when i was never late for this job, never called off or missed a day of work, many times i came in on last minuet calls all through the night. – less

Overall employment experience
Certified Nursing Assistant/ Home Health Aide (Former Employee), Overland Park, KSMarch 11, 2014
Pros: working with different types of clients w/different needs
Cons: working in different cities in ks & mo but not being compensated for mileage
I enjoyed BrightStar because they allow their employees to assist the clients in a lot of different areas, from childcare to 24 hour home healthcare. I learned that not every client will need or expect the same things and that it is always a plus to let the client know that you are there to help them, not take over there home.

One fact that I personally – more... enjoyed about the management was that they weren't afraid to let the client(s) know that they would be expected to help the aide help them, especially if the client only needed assistance with rehabilitation..

The most difficult thing I encountered with BrightStar is getting some clients to realize that they can still do most of their daily activities themselves and after they come to that realization their self confidence level goes way up! That always has and always will make me feel good! – less

NO room for advancement and no benefits
Caregiver (Current Employee), Roseville, CAFebruary 27, 2014
Management is very frequently confused and do not check your schedule before asking if you can work thus double booking or declining to give you jobs before even checking with you. Communication leaves much to be desired. You have to pester them for work. Way too many employees and not enough work. There is not any room for advancement and there are – more... no included benefits. can go months without work or work way too much. feast or famine with hours. Coworkers are often unprofessional. – less

diversified duties makes the job exciting
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee), Cedar Knolls, NJFebruary 25, 2014
My work schedule is comprised mainly of providing home healthcare to patients. The interesting aspect of this job is that
duties vary according to the specific patient. I work independently
in the field so there's very little interaction with my co-workers with the exception of the office staff. On occasion, Wellness
Clinics provides us the opportunity – more... to work with our co-workers.
I find this to be very enjoyable. The downside to this job is ending
a case due to different circumstances after a bond has been formed with patient and or family. – less
