Simple job with little compensation and opportunity for growth
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – High Point, NC – April 19, 2017
A typical day was hectic. Everything was on a schedule. There was little opportunity for position growth and the compensation was very little. The attitudes we very combative which made the work enviornment extremely uncomfortable.
This company, although based out of South Carolina, contracts with various nursing homes. I was dismissed for not treating a patient illegally. The company did not stand behind me. They took the side of the nursing home.
Educator/Teacher (Former Employee) – Bronx – January 18, 2017
I recently left the NYC Board of Education and looked to this agency to find me another teaching position in a charter or independent school. I went to an interview and got the job. I was never told the arrangement that this agency had with the school. The class I taught had two previous teachers who quit because of the working conditions. The methodology of this school was alien to what I taught during my long career with the DOE. No training or support. Two assistant teachers quit during my tenure as a teacher there. I informed the agency how the school was dysfunctional. I requested reassignment. No effort was made to honor my request. The school was a failing charter school with a high staff turnover rate. The agency was more concerned about getting their finder's fee than sending teachers into a healthy teaching environment.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Chillicothe, IL – January 11, 2017
the only thing I really did not like about this job was the management. If I could work here again I will. the atmosphere is so positive and warming. My coworkers were very helpful and friend. Each department was.
Speech Language Pathologist (Current Employee) – Virginia – January 8, 2017
I have been employed with Heritage Healthcare for over two years and it has been a wonderful experience. Heritage provides ongoing training and education to keep us abreast of industry changes. Therapists are held to ethical standards that most therapy companies do not; patient well-being is always most important. The company believes in promoting from within.
COTA (Current Employee) – Florence, SC – November 2, 2016
I've enjoyed working for Heritage for the most part. I was hired on quickly after my license was complete. As a COTA, there's very little work requirements outside the workplace; occasional online training. This company is great for people who don't mind working at several locations in their region. Although its not necessarily a requirement, you may be asked to fill in for other facilities within 5 min-1 hr driving distance. You'll get paid for drive time, but not mileage. This company is very focused on productivity, currently expecting 90% or higher which is the second increase since I started a year and a half ago. Do your job, get in, get out. It's not a guaranteed 40 hr week. Your hours depend on available OTR (also not guaranteed) and Rehab manager scheduling. For the most part my hours per week totaled to 37-39 hours. I worked for the highest ranked facility in our region and other facilities weren't so fortunate. There is little chance that you'll receive a raise. I guess it depends on your discipline and certifications but from my experience and understanding, it's difficult. The company seems more concerned about cutting costs and making money, rather than showing appreciation to hardworking employees.
