The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing and the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.
HHA/PCA (Former Employee), Minnetonka, MN – November 17, 2013
Cons: unfair travel compensation, bad planning with schuedules.
I have never seen such a disorganized place to work for. They would say they they would call you on a client and would very seldom communicate that to you. I had so many things that went wrong. For instance calling at least twice a month because they lost my time sheet that I know I mailed in. The clients were wonderful and the best part of the job. – more... I never knew who did what job. They also do let you go for little reason. – less
R.N. Case Manager (Former Employee), Minnetonka, MN – November 8, 2013
This company used to be great until new owners took over around 2010. Most of the great team of Mental Health RN Case Managers ended up leaving the company because our new managers were driven only by money and treated nurses like cattle. Pay was horribly low because they do not pay by the hour or pay for driving time to clients. I agree completely – more... with the nurse who made the comment about putting on your running shoes. – less
Anonymous (Former Employee), Minnetonka, MN – November 3, 2013
Pros: my peers were wonderful to work with
Cons: management wants wants wants but gives no rewards or recognition
The management team was terrible and they always talk about the mission which is to help others but they do not care about the employees. The CEO seems like a nice guy but the people working for him are clicky and ruthless if you are not in there circle.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Minnesota – September 14, 2013
Cons: no pros
Do you own running shoes? If so, I suggest you place them on your feet and run as fast as you can in the opposite direction from this company. Perhaps some of the other reviews on this site are honest people who truly enjoyed/enjoy their job with this dishonest and unethical organization. However, because I worked for this company and was told to do – more... so myself, I know that most of these reviews are written by employees who were just short of forced to write a review of how wonderful of an organization Recover Health is (this statement alone should tell you exactly what kind of an organization Recover Health truly is). The only time in the longevity of my professional lifespan that I woke up every single day not wanting to go to work was with Recover Health. I never knew what the next crazy (internally created) ordeal would be. I was often asked “What keeps you awake at night?” The truthful answer would have been “Why I still work here!?!” I am embarrassed to have had worked for such an organization. Few of the people they serve (and by serve I mean people who have Medicare / or a terrible situation and why Recover Health received the referral (no other agency wanted) in the first place) are truly happy with the service they receive. On the flipside, few of the people that work for Recover Health are happy either. I have never gone to work and seen so many of my “teammates” cry because of management – or lack thereof. I felt like I was in the scene of a horrible movie and I could not get out. Final words of wisdom: If you hate yourself or want to hate yourself, apply at Recover Health – they’ll likely offer you a job on the spot because their turnover rate is through the roof and they need people like you to serve their declining group of clientele. – less
great place to work until THEY HAVE A BAD DAY N TAKE IT OUT ON U
home health aide \ CNA (Current Employee), USA – August 29, 2013
Pros: clients, work in general!!!
Cons: not the greatest insurance, great place to work until they have a bad day n take it out on u
office staff very unorganized - you will be doing your daily scheduling on your own as it's mainly 'social' hour every day as well as very 'clingy'. Sad part is.. if you take 'pride' in your job you best watch out as other will not and this will put your job in jeopardy, as well as 'they' may say they 'respect' n 'appreciate' all the hard work you have – more... been doing as well as the hours you have been picking up BUT when it all comes down to it... if your not in the 'click' u are not taken seriously as well as respected at all at the end of the day. I did enjoy working for this company very much until the day i was 'screamed' at to 'work' do to a coworker calling in. was i able to work... all they had to do was ask... NOT DEMAND!!!! – less
Office personnel unwilling to hear your side of story in problems.
Home Health Aide (Former Employee), Council Bluffs, IA – July 5, 2013
The hours were lacking and office personnel indifferent to requests of more work hours. You were not given enough hours to get benefit and could not afford to get your own insurance. Office Personnel were unforgiving and unwilling to hear your side to the story of any problems that arose. My last client was very nice and fun to work with. My co-workers – more... were very professional and the hardest part was not getting involved with their personal problems. – less
Case Manager (Former Employee), Omaha, NE – June 5, 2013
I'm glad to see so many people have positive experiences with this company in WI, MN, and IA. As for their new Nebraska branch, not so much. They have a manager who has never worked in Home Health, and it's obvious. They wrongfully terminate employees if you aren't "friends" instead of being concerned with your job performance because it's an at-will – more... employer and they can fire you for whatever they wish. There is always gossip and backstabbing. It's a very High School atmosphere. RUN AWAY, AND RUN FAST. – less
Current Employee (Current Employee), St Cloud, MN – April 5, 2013
Pros: compassionate, caring and dedicated to their clients
Cons: growing and adapting to changes along the way
Good morals, strong mission statement. Company is growing and expanding, working towards providing quality care to the community. Nurses are very strong and dedicated, families love the quality care they receive. Families need that holistic approach to care and that is provided at Recover.
current employee (Current Employee), st. cloud – April 5, 2013
Pros: engaging settings, diversity with clients
I haven't worked with the company very long but since i have started, it has grown and become better every day. The changes that are being made are very benifitial and you can see them, with the clients, the staff and the office personel.
Wonderful, supportive staff and RN! Love my clients and feel like a family setting.
Customised Living Supervisor LPN (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MN – March 27, 2013
Pros: excellent team players even with the small amount of staff i have.
Cons: being on call 24/7, short staffing, wearing 5 different hats at a time
Transition is always a little un-nerving, however I feel with every oppurtunity of growth comes opposition of the unknown. It has been a relief to have a big company take over as I feel there is more strenght in numbers and look forward to positive changes in the near future!
It is amazing to have such great staff and local office to represent Recover Health! It is our mission to create relationships that make a meaningful difference in people's lives....we bring health care home
Job Work/Life Balance
Growing company that has become a great place to work!
nurse (Current Employee), La Crosse – March 12, 2013
This office has had a lot of great transition in the past year. A great place to work and very caring leadership. I have never worked with such caring people in my many years in healthcare! Love the flexibility and one on one service!
Current Employee (Current Employee), Mn – February 21, 2013
Pros: flexibility, great co-workers, advancement opportunities
I've worked for Recover Health for three years and find the organization a great place to work. Lots of room for advancement and they offer a flexible work environment. I find my co- workers are all very passionate about providing the best home care possible.
HHA (Current Employee), Cedar Rapids, IA – February 20, 2013
Pros: flexible, growing, clients, management
Recover Health is an awesome company to work for. They are flexible and growing. The office staff works so hard to keep clients and employees satisfied and happy. I feel very respected at Recover Health, and really feel that I make a difference in the lives of my clients.
Everyday is a new adventure! I love what I do... how many people can say that!
Home Office Employee (Current Employee), Minnetonka – February 19, 2013
Pros: work life balance, freedom to explore new ideas, advancement
Cons: no starbucks close to the office ;)
At Recover Health I get to be inspired, I get to be myself, I get to try new things, and I am appreciated.
I love my co-workers. Everyday is an adventure with all the personalities we employ. Everyone brings something very exciting and a little bit crazy to the table. 90% of these crazy out of the box ideas have lead to our continued success.
I love – more... that there is purpose in my work. I'm not selling or creating a do-dad, I am a part of helping people age gracefully in their homes. – less
Administrative (Current Employee), Madison, WI – February 19, 2013
Pros: fun, supportive environment
I have worked at Recover Health for over 3 years, and there is no other place I'd like to be. The Owners, Management and my co-workers are awesome. A lot of opportunity for new graduates, and RH promotes growth within the company. It's a young and fresh business that's just started on a tremendous growth path. I finally found my work "home". I highly – more... recommend this company to anyone interested in home health care. If you don't already know, home health is a different type of nursing/caregiving career, some people just dont work well in this type of independent environment and get bitter against the company when they do not succeed. – less
Working with the people at Recover Health, is like working with your best friends all day long. Such a committment to community and client.
Corporate Employee (Current Employee), Home Office – February 12, 2013
Pros: the "home office" atmosphere, and being able to extend that to all of our branches
Cons: home office location
After being in home care for over 10 years, it is exciting to know that each day that I go to work - I have a possibility of learning something new. We have 4 people in our department that were recently recognized for each having over 5 years of service to the company. We don't get to meet our clients, but - our goal is to work with all payers to make – more... sure that the client care is paid for as quickly and efficiently as possible. The hardest part of the job is that you want everyone to work at the home office, but the people in the outer branches are such a crucial piece of our success and they are where they need to be. – less
Community Liaison (Current Employee), Alexandria, MN – February 12, 2013
Pros: pay, work/life balance, values, co-workers
I do the marketing for my branch, and it is very rewarding. The company is full of great people to work with. Recover Health is built on creating relationships with people, and that's exactly what they do. Pay is good, as is the management.
Nurse (Former Employee), LaCrosse Office – December 23, 2012
Pros: the clients and many of the field workers
Cons: compensation and management's attitude
Worked here a few years ago as a nurse (wanted to get established in a new town - had heard things, but hoped the company had changed). Was worse than I heard and imagined. Treat their employees like dirt, and clients do pick up on this. Unfortunately, the clients often don't have a choice of agencies. Nurses were paid by the visit (an average rate), – more... but had to do the overwhelming paperwork and mandated trips to the closest office on their own time and cost. As interested in the bottom line as they were, I'm not sure how they qualified for the ".org" designation. A Christmas letter from the CEO brimmed with good wishes, but demonstrated how out of touch he was with his branch offices and their lousey management. Only work here if you're desperate for a job. – less
I have found PURPOSE in what I do and a company that supports it!
Development, Visit staff (Current Employee), Minnesota – December 14, 2012
Pros: support, learning opportunities, help amazing people stay in their homes
Clinically, Recover Health has such great nurses! I am so impressed with their commitment and drive toward quality care. The mission and values of the owners of Recover Health are truly inspiring. I have been with this agency less than a year, but already know I will want to be a part of this company for years to come. This is what Home Care can be!
