Pros: free snacks, flexible breaks and hours, polite and easy to work with owners
Cons: no place for slackers, hard working environment driven for success, consider if you are passionate about home care and want to make a difference
This is a relatively new franchise firm with a strong yet easy to work with management team.
I only had the chance to work here for a little while, and had to leave due to personal family reasons, however, during my time, the owners were a delight to work with and very accommodating with work flexibility despite the pressure of building a strong foundation – more... as any new business has. This is a firm for hard workers, however, and if you work hard you will start to see rewards sooner than you would expect. The owners are very fair and respectful but require work with integrity so they can continue to build a constructive and positive culture. Recently they have faced some pressure from corporate, however, in my short time, I have seen them work hard to turn the tide of growth and success optimistically. The team here is small and everyone seems driven towards a common goal of wanting to build one of the strongest most reputable home care businesses in the area. I've worked at some other firms in the medical industry before and recognize good leadership and passionate coworkers here, all working to building a foundation in a market that is soon to be very high in demand due to our escalating baby boom aging/retiring population in the next half to full decade. We need more businesses like these with pleasant owners, employees, and care givers to help not only discover ways to improve the lives of the aging work force, but also create more jobs in our economy.
Although working in any medical related health field comes with its burden of legal constraints and necessary requirements, as required by law for safety, the home care industry is no different than most businesses in the medical industry when it comes to regulations, and the folks here are not looking to take any shortcuts when it comes to doing things the right way, always putting quality of service and safety of customers first. If you are easily frustrated with too many requirements and legal constraints, then no medical industry is a good fit for you since we all know dealing in any health care business requires strong regulations by the government for our protection.
I was very impressed with the level of professionalism and polite character of employees here, and although understand that different people have different reactions to work circumstances based on their experiences, I had a pleasant time interacting with the owners and employees and wish the firm success in future endeavors. Since this is a small company, there weren't a lot of perks, however, as the company continues to grow, I see that to only improve. I feel that the career success of these businesses will only grow in time and with that so will careers of any people starting with such firms. Hence I've started only looking for work with other such small firms with good ownership so I have the best opportunity for growing my career. – less
