CNA/STNA (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – September 5, 2015
the typical day for me first started off with me making my schedule a week in advance to accommodate my private schedule. but once I worked at a few facilities I was able to become a regular at those places. I learn how to administer basic care for the aging population. the management wasn't too great at dependable. the co-workers I had always changed because I was a traveling care provider one day I'm by myself and the next I'm at a facility. was watching my clients pass. interacting with clients and residents
great staff, great management, joyous to help those in need of living assistance.
Behavioral Health Technician (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 22, 2013
Continuous log of client activity, meal prep, transport and activity planning, and administering medications. I learned to more efficiently provide care for the clients we serviced. The job was not difficult in any way, and I felt like the compensation was very fare.
Behavioral Health Technician (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 4, 2014
I would come in early help teachers with Behavioral students I was trained in this but, when I did it I was punished for doing my job. I liked working with some of my co workers but their were a few whom I didn't care to work with.
Case manager (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 8, 2013
Staff at Dependable Staffing is friendly and welcoming. They were a little slow in establishing a position offer. The salary was on the low end of the local market and they failed to initiate training as promised on the clients' EMR in a timely manner.
Office building looks like a military bunker from the outside.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 10, 2014
I worked 40 hrs a week and was kept busy. I was basically a fill in for CIGNA employees on vacation, or sick. I learned how to draw pediatric patients and out of a doctor office environment. I worked alone sometimes or with other CIGNA employees. The Management was amazing and a pleasure to work for. The hardest part of the job was driving over 40 miles for a job that was only 4 hours and not getting compensated. When your happy to work for a great company, you'll do it anyway! The best part of this job was earning my accountability with Dependable Staffing and CIGNA.
Great First Job, Flexable schedule, Weekly Pay
No Health Insurance, Work Contract, drive time vs hours worked
Reliable, very organized company with flexible hours.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 19, 2015
A typical day at work may consist of a multitude of things including medical emergencies such as caring for patients who are experiencing seizures, head injuries with alteration in level of consciousness, intractable vomiting, internal bleeding, extremely low blood sugar in diabetics with alteration in level of consciousness, etc. IV therapy, caring for patients with tracheostomy tubes, with peg tubes, urinary catheters, central and PICC line care, open wounds to be dressed daily including packing of wounds, FHTs, suicidal patients, patients with exacerbation of asthma, cardiac events, and more. I learned how to improve my time management, work with a team of doctors, nurse practitioners, mental health providers, health care technicians on a daily basis in order to provide care for my patients. The hardest part of my job was also the most enjoyable part of my job which was responding to various emergencies while assessing the situation quickly.
A variety of responsibilities for RNs helped keep the job interesting
Student Aide (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 8, 2012
A typical day would be going with a special needs student in High School , helping with their class work, also making sure no medical assistance was needed. I learned that every special needs person learns in their own way and you really have to take your time to make sure that they are retaining the information being taught. The management was out the office, since i worked on sight at a high school i never really seen them. Although i was monitored by the schools special needs director. I worked one on one with the student, but the co-workers in the school were very welcoming and made it easy day to day. The hardest part of my job was trying to make a sophomore in high school with special needs, who thinks their normal, stay on task in class around their peers. The most enjoyable part would be when the student actually enjoyed my company as their aide and excepted help from me.
helping a person hands on
very slow days, having to bascially take high school all over again.
Caregiver (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – September 9, 2014
A typical day depends on who I work with, But basically i arrive and assist with ADLS. Any doctor appointments that they have I take them to. Usually their is a PT session depending on the day. I also assist with meals, showers ect. Some clients require more care and technical stuff which I have learned how to do. Their is nothing really "hard" at my job just alot of physical type of work and patience which both I am great at. I love seeing positive reactions during the day such as smiles, talking or the simplest eating a good meal without any problems. I love my job and what i do, helping people with the smallest tasks and knowing they are very grateful is the best way that I could think of to spend my days.
Production was at its best every day and associates were always in top form.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – New Lenox, IL – September 16, 2014
A typical day at work would be a team meeting first thing in the morning then we separate to our departments and talk some more and do a team stretch before working. I learned that if a product is to heavy don't be afraid to ask another team member for help instead of trying to lift the product by yourself and have the risk of getting injured. The co-workers were friendly and always helpful.
Pharmacy tech (Former Employee) – Arizona – September 8, 2013
If you want a fair wage flexible schedule this is the place. I was able to get a ton of experience. Option to choose your assignments. This is not a place to retire but a nice way to supplement your income and get experience.
Pharmacy Technician Dispensing (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 3, 2014
They come off as a company trying to get you full time hours at locations, but do not offer any significant help in finding it for you. You have to constantly call them for job assignments. For a staffing company, they lack in the very thing they say they will do for people.
Behavior Health Technician (Former Employee) – Phoenix, Az – December 8, 2013
I worked as a Behavioral Health Tech and explained at my interview that I would have to register my kids for school on a work day and was told that would be fine but when that time came I was told that I would have to be replaced for missing a day of work. Not very honest....
