Great place to work! Closed my own business to come work for EGAN.
co-Marketing Director & Assistant Administrator (Current Employee) – Metairie, LA – May 22, 2017
I closed what at the time was a relatively lucrative retail medical supply business for an opportunity to work at EGAN full-time. I had done part-time/as-needed work for them in the past, and when I was offered a full-time position it was too good to turn down.
I had to endure some losses related to closing my business on such short notice, but in the bigger picture it was well worth the decision.
I've been able to recoup about 20% of the money lost by selling the inventory in-stock when I closed it down bit by bit on third-party marketplaces. That number should gradually increase in time.
That said, my business didn't come with health insurance, time off (much less paid time off) and a retirement plan.
The company is familiar with my work and work ethic, and I'm allowed to perform my job duties without being scrutinized by someone higher-up the food chain.
Data suggests my work has been of great benefit to the company, which pleases me. It's nice to know that I'm carrying my weight and then some, helping southeast Louisiana's best home care and hospice agency grow and expand.
Pay, culture, management style, good colleagues
My commute stinks but everyone who lives where I live and works where I would can say the same.
