Its all about money here, unfortunately. A certain amount of appointments were needed each month in order to bill insurance. Even if the client didn't need those appointments, or needed more appointments, it didn't matter. It was required that you bill insurance for every client, even if the client list was up to 30 people. Thats 120 appointments in one month with 30 different family schedules. If you didn't reach the goal, you got in BIG trouble. It was insanely stressful. Not to mention, the pay was about $26,000 so not worth it.
Also, the company always seemed SUPER unstable. There were always rumors that our program would be shutting down, that there wasn't enough money for our program, that we were all going to lose our jobs, etc. This was also super stressful.
Some pros included being about to make school and home visits which got you out of the office and not sitting at a computer all day. There was also an option to work from home on days you had a lot of notes to write which was nice. Management was not micromanaging so that probably how most people lasted so long. All my coworkers were constantly talking about other jobs they were trying to get in order to leave.
