Not the job for anyone who needs to support themselves or is looking for advancement
Pros: support from nursing supervisor. flexibility in hours.
Cons: short breaks, travel compensation, hourly wage, no benefits, no future.
The compensation in this company is not remotely comptetitive in a field that is typically poorly paid. There are no benefits that any aide can possible afford on what they make. The mileage reimbursement is inadequate! The work is difficult and sometimes dangerous, often new employees are thrown into dysfunctional situations that no one else wants. However, if a case is a serious safety concern, Willcare will generally try to work with you and be supportive or get you off it. There seems to be a HUGE disconnect between corporate and satellite offices/aides. If Willcare claims to care for people(their slogan) they don't seem to care much for the backbone of their agency, the PCAs. Training/advancement to move up from PCA position is unavailable.
