MGMT doesn't really care about the lower level
Representative (Current Employee) –  Miramar, FLJanuary 17, 2018
Use to enjoy working there, now it is just a job. MGMT doesn't really care about the lower level employees. Don't listen. Management shows favoritism to certain people

Great job with the right manager
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Miramar, FLJanuary 11, 2018
You will either like it or hate it. there is no middle ground. since there is no consistency each time your manager changes the rules and how the job is done changes, and management changes often. you are told its a m-f job however your on call on the weekends q2 months or so. also there is no over time and the paperwork can sometimes get overwhelming. on the other hand the patients are for the most part a joy and you grow to love them as family making it hard emotional to loose them
Pros
flexible schedule
Cons
paperwork

"We took care of each other" - one of the Vitas Value's
Admissions Manager (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJanuary 9, 2018
The most enjoyable part of the job, was working with wonderful, caring Staff. Hospice is a difficult and rewarding career. The most difficult part, was the daily meeting of family members and discussing "end of Life Care".

Good
Regional Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  CAJanuary 9, 2018
The hospice industry has gotten very competitive and it is a bit saturated but it is a very needed industry which helps patients and their family. Vitas is based in FL so the company has a larger market share on the East Coast then declines as you go West.

2% raise per year maybe
HR Assistant (Current Employee) –  Miramar, FLJanuary 3, 2018
No room for advancement unless you know someone who holds a high positionworks in the company. Only 2% raise for clerical workers, maybe. New workers highered making more money than seasoned workers.

Unfair and mean
LPN (Former Employee) –  Maitland, FL 32751January 3, 2018
A new manager came in and decided that per diem Nurses could NOT refuse assignments, and they regularly demanded that they travel 100+ miles to assignments. I refused a long range assignment (100+ miles) and was fired. BTW in 10 years I NEVER got a raise, I sometimes only got 1 shift per week, there were NO benefits, and the management was routinely disrespectful.
Pros
none
Cons
poor pay, no benefits, few assignments, long travel distances required

Nice place but requires patience. I would sometimes work in the corporate office and sometimes in the Hospice center. I learned to work with families that were losing loved ones.
