minimal pay and no benefits
Caregiver/medication tech (Former Employee) – Riverside County, CA – November 4, 2015
Ask all the question's and get answers prior to employment. Its like pulling teeth after the fact to find out anything.
I Enjoyed job, but there is NO room to advance or make more than minimum wage ($10 Ca). Employees here through Encore were still making original hired in wage, only getting raise to meet new minimum wage laws. Most with dedication of 5 hears.
At my hire, only annual raise if one merits @ 2%, thats 20 cents a year-if you're lucky enough to get a review, you have to ask, remind and beg for a review. So at best you will get a buck more in 6 years. Well will facility remains Pacifica. These places seem to change ownership/names every few years.
Holiday pay is time and a half, only if you work the holiday and you must be a full time employee. Pacifica observes 5- Thanksgiving, Christmas, New years day, Easter Sunday & July 4. Vacation After a year, if full time, now you earn sick days as it is mandated by law they give you some.
No health insurance offered (except for office management) dental $20 a paycheck, but it doesn't cover anything. Other benefit is a resource number to call for referrals (mental health, counseling, smoking cessation) but you will pay for any services you need.
No tuition reimbursement or encouragement to further you career or education.
Would rather hire from outside than promote qualified employees working for company. (My thought is, they already have a good worker for a cheap rate, why promote?, right)
Grounds/cottages are beautiful and well kept.
