Registered Nurse (Current Employee), San Diego, CA – August 12, 2015
Pros: Flexible hours
Cons: Home healthcare compensation
Providing care to patients in their homes is a unique challenge and requires teamwork. The team at Premier works diligently to ensure that our patients are well cared for, and the administration works to meet the needs of the employees.
Great patients but the pay and benefits leave something to be desired.
LVN (Current Employee), San Marcos, CA – July 13, 2015
Pros: Flexible hours, office staff is nice, get paid weekly
Cons: Insurance is double what I've paid anywhere else, no PTO or vacation
Typical day I would go to patients house and do whatever parents ask me to. Working lunch so you only work 8 hours a day. Little slower paced than what I'm used to. Will go to appointments with patient. Have to turn nursing notes in everyday to get paid correctly. You can mail them but they sometimes get lost or are late and then you won't get paid until the next paycheck for that time. You have supervisory visits every month.
Licensed Vocational Nurse/Charge Nurse (Current Employee), West Covina, CA – February 24, 2015
CARING AND MAINTAINING SAFE PLACE FOR MY PATIENTS. JUST ENJOYING WHAT I DO. MY SUPERVISOR ARE ALL VERY HELPFUL IN PROVIDING FORMS I MIGHT NEED NURSING NOTES ETC. THE ONLY HARD PART IS NOT HAVING ENOUGH WORK AT TIMES OR NO NEW ASSIGNMENS
LVN (Current Employee), San Diego, CA – September 26, 2014
I have to say I loved the assignment I was given by this employer. The pay, compensation, and reward, however, were beyond lackluster. I found out later into my assignment that another nurse who had been assigned to my case as a back up was getting paid far greater than I was. I feel this person had a greater advantage as finding fill in nurses proved to be very challenging for my particular assignment. I don't feel I had very much leverage going in to the company as they had told me their pay range and I was offered the higher end of it. Maybe I should have tried negotiating better. Office staff was sometimes tolerable but otherwise preferred to be avoided. The best working relationship I had was only with my immediate case supervisor and the family I worked with.
Great experience with children. You have to be able to get on their level and work with them
Caregiver (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CA – August 25, 2014
Overall i got great experince working with 2 children with Autism. Your hours are based on when the family needs you. Hours are set for the month, you send your own timesheets. I learned that you have to have alot of patience
Care Provider (Current Employee), Merced, CA – August 11, 2014
Pros: work with a very loving family
Cons: no cons
I work at taking care of a special needs adult, I would need to take care, clean up after them, 30 hours a week. The hardest part of the job would have to be changing diapers, otherwise everything is fairly easy, just being able to enjoy the company and to see how special needs interact with their surroundings
Program Coordinator (Former Employee), Culver City, CA – May 27, 2014
Pros: evenings and weekends off, as well as holidays.
Cons: no growth opportunities or raises.
Phones rang promptly at 8 AM, as wells as processing of applications, time sheets, authorizations and new referrals, all of which pertained to a new experience. Management displayed poor to average leadership skills and often apathetic to workers which contributed to poor to average morale. The hardest part of the job was dealing with management. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting consumers and forming relationships with them.
Productive, fun, and learning experience towards my career.
Child Care Provider (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CA – February 12, 2014
Pros: work part-time
Cons: no raises
I work on my own at a relative's home taking care of a child with special needs. Light house cleaning and running errands is done once a week. I submit my hours at the end of the month and am required to renew my first aid/CPR certification biannually. I am able to balance two schools and work part-time because I work my schedule to fit my needs. I have no complaints working with Premier.
