Certified Nurse Assistant I (Former Employee), Yadkinville, NC – April 17, 2014
You're sent out to different homes some of which are in the middle of nowhere. Some of the management left a little to be desired. You're pretty much on your own which is good and promotes independence and problem solving.
Home Health Care Aide (Current Employee), Canton, OH – March 26, 2014
Pros: working with the dd population
Cons: no health care
The people I help when I'm working are fantastic. They fill my day with all sorts of new things. I enjoy working with this population. The company itself could use modification but I believe all companies can. I work with a variety of staff depending on the homes I am scheduled to work, so I get a different way of doing things in each house with the – more... care of the individuals being my number one focus always. – less
Direct Line Staff (Current Employee), Lake Havasu City, AZ – January 13, 2014
Pros: health care after 90 days
Cons: no breaks
Management needs to fully understand what the employees go through on a daily basis and not scrutinize. Co-workers are awesome. Very team oriented but you have to be when working with special needs people. Most enjoyable is seeing all the smiling faces every day and knowing you are making a difference in their lives. Hardest part of the job is when – more... management doesn't back you and support you in decisions. – less
I learned a lot about computers, but it wasn't worth putting up with such disrespect.
instructor (Former Employee), Urbandale, Iowa – December 29, 2013
As an Instructor, I did my best to keep up with the subjects I had to teach, and I appreciate that what I learned has been very useful for my current job. But the atmosphere in the office in dealing with co-workers eventually led to my leaving the company. The sales team were dishonest in their work and regularly spoke poorly of the training staff. – more... Fellow Instructors could not be counted on to be of any assistance when needed. Although the Owner sincerely tried to run a good business, her husband often treated others, co-workers and customers, disrespectfully. Instructors were encouraged to help students use dishonest methods to pass certification exams. And exam proctors weren't even properly licensed to administer exams. I stayed as long as I did because the pay was good, but I'd finally had enough of the stress of the place. – less

I would be welcomed at the front door by the guys and did the changed of shift.I would then get the info from the night staff and have a cup of coffee with a couple of the guys.It was always daily routine of hygiene and medication administration. I learned a lot being a manager.I no now that there is a lot of hard decisions that come with that title.I – more... had some great co-workers and some who were just there for the money.The thing I will miss most is not being with my guys everyday.The best thing is that they were a big ans special part of my life.. – less
Great organization to work for and wonderful people to support
Community Support Specialist (Former Employee), Columbia, MO – August 22, 2013
Pros: raise after 90 days and annually; long term management and employees
Cons: some weekend work necessary to complete notes, on-call every 4-6 months
I loved working for new horizons, the staff are great and the management is very knowledgable and supportive. 8-4 or 8-5, flexible, good benefits, somewhat high turnover rate as working with individuals with severe and mental illness is mentally draining at times. The hardest part of the job was trying to change people who don't want to change. The – more... most enjoyable part was helping people and working with clients! They are fabulous. – less
