Senior Helpers (Former Employee), Tampa, FL – April 9, 2014
Cons: not enough client in the area to staff
Was promised work and then 1 client and nothing for days. Management was great and very professional. The hardest part of the job was not having enough work. The ability to care for the client I did have.
It's a great company but you never have a set schedule and it's constantly changing their office staff.
Senior Helpers (Former Employee), Cherry Hill, NJ – April 7, 2014
Pros: you get paid for the mileage you use while with the client, if you take them anywhere.
Cons: never knowing who is in the office, as far as management when you need to speak to someone due to the turn over in office staff.
I loved working with the clients and their families. I never had co-workers at this company because I was a caregiver in the clients' homes. The hardest part of the job was the wear and tear on my personal vehicle and not getting paid for traveling over an hour to get to certain clients. Some of the management, while I was an employee, were very rude – more... in my opinion. – less

Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), overland park ks – September 24, 2013
There was never a bad day at work, i absolutly loved it. I grew to charis the family i helped out. The scheduals where so fitting to my already busy college life especially when finals where around the corner. I grew so much with the kids i worked with, taught me alot about how to interact with kids whom have special needs. We had lots of fun learning – more... some of the basics of human life skills, of course we had our moments, but staying calm and collected helped keep them from " dropping off the deep end" If i didnt have to move i would work there regardless of the pay. – less
