HR Assistant (Current Employee), Broken Arrow Ok – August 13, 2014
I print, log, review, all applications. I do all interviews, background checks. I help set up for trainings. I help cover for the receptionist. The management here is nice but they tend to play favorites so that some have to follow the rules while others do not. I love working with my direct supervisor we make a very good team.
Caregiver/CNA (Former Employee), Dothan, AL – June 22, 2014
Pros: if you enjoy people and working... a great job.
Cons: not so great job if you don't look to advance financially or even job-wise.
The clients look forward to seeing the workers on a day to day basis once they have gotten to know you. You will become part of their family as well. Attachment sometimes occurs which is often times good/bad in some ways. Meaning if you or them depart finding another job or them passing away. It is often times hard but we all know that is all a part – more... of God's plan. – less
Caregiver (Current Employee), Mobile, Al – May 4, 2014
The client I work for is wonderful. The great thing about this company is that you don't necessarily have to work with the company, rather with the client you are assigned. I am thankful that I started working for this company because a client requested I work with them. The people I have spoken with when there was a problem are a little rigid and not – more... so helpful. I only call if it is completely necessary. The company underpays its employees for the amount of work we do for our clients, which I am not thrilled about. – less
Clients Needs are Overlooked, Very Poor Management, No Mileage Reimbursement, No Overtime Pay for Nurses
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Muscle Shoals, AL – April 25, 2014
Pros: working with good clients/family members of clients
Cons: very poor management, no mileage reimbursement, insurance offered is not recognized by most healthcare providers in al, employees/employers are not held to standard of care for clients
Cared for skilled clients over 8 hour shifts. Clients are the best part of the job normally. I am the type of nurse that feels that clients' needs come first. There is a severe lack of communication/management in this company. Constant Drama in the Office leads to drama in the field. Every "problem" is handled in a personal manner instead of a professional – more... manner. Workers are asked to lie on paperwork, are not reimbursed for mileage, and nurses are refused overtime pay (even if overtime hours are worked). The only reason I stayed as long as I did was because I care for my client. I DO NOT recommend this company to anyone. – less
CNA/Housekeeper (Former Employee), Pontotoc and Tupelo, MS area – January 30, 2014
Cons: continuous housekeeping
Overall good people to work for, did not enjoy the travel, did not feel compensated enough for travel, gave baths, ran errands for patients, housekeeping
Enjoyed and loved each patient, however felt more like a housekeeper than a CNA at this job. Did more housekeeping than patient care in hours at clients houses. I like housekeeping and washing clothes, – more... but it got to where I hated doing it at home. – less
CNA (Former Employee), Indianola, MS – January 10, 2014
Pros: meeting different people
Cons: no insurance if part time, short breaks, supervisors not explaining paperwork and giving the wrong address to patients homes.
Some supervisors were helpful but others were nasty. I was told that I could not receive insurance because I only worked 20 hours. When my patient died I was given other patient that home makers didn't want and I had license. I was given employee of the month after being with the company for 6 months.
In home aide (Former Employee), Springfield, MO – October 30, 2013
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: low pay for hard work, no advancement.
Pay is horrible for the amount of work they expect. Mileage reimbursement is inadequate, schedules are always messed up, it's impossible to get through to a supervisor and no advancement opportunity. Low raises once a year.
Business Services Assistant II (Former Employee), Springfield, MO – October 11, 2013
Pros: meeting and working with a variety of people, nurses, public
Cons: not a very structured professional management system
This is an enjoyable position for the work that is involved. Atypical day is not typical everyday brought newe challenges. Management is not well defined, and is based more on personal feelings than the actual Management of employees and work. I worked with one direct cooworker who was challenging. the Hardest part of the job was trying to see clearly – more... defined lines onwho was in charge of what . The most enjoyable part of the job was the people, the work and the completion of tasks. – less
ACCOUNTING COORDINATOR (Former Employee), Jackson, MS – June 16, 2013
Pros: good people all the way around, interesting work, learning experience
Cons: the rush of trying to get everything done for payroll
Again, I have always worked with some wonderful folks. I can't say enough good things about the owners/management at Upjohn HealthCare. I'm sure there have been many changes over the years but I would not be surprised if at least 1 person that I worked with back in 1990 was not still in this location. My main responsibility while at Upjohn was processing – more... the payroll for 1000 MS and AL employees and all the assorted tasks that go with payroll. I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the job except when someone's check was not right - usually due to the employee not turning in their timesheet on time. This was something that we took in stride and made every effort to accomodate the employee. This was a part time job for most of our employees so that they could supplement their full time pay or earn a little extra money for their families so we did what we could. The most enjoyable part was payday - that's when we got to see most of the employees and sometimes their children - we made it a fun day for all with balloons and lollipops for the children and the "big" children. – less
Healthcare Provider (Former Employee), Oxford, MS – June 8, 2013
Assisting with the elderly. These position provide non-medical assistance with the activities of daily living--such as personal care, housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation, and errands, to name a few.
For this company I started as a Home Health Cleaning Aide for the mentally and physically disabled. I moved up to an office position in the accounting department. I loved the job however the computer system was so antiquated that I was forced to spend much of my time in waste rather that productivity. I'm not wired for wasting time so I sought other – more... opportunities elsewhere. A typical day for me was spent waiting for the computer specialist to unfreeze the system or reboot it so I could try to re-submit denied medicare and medicaid claims for payment. – less
