Terrible work/life balance
Social Worker (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – August 14, 2018
I felt Christiana had a competitive salary and benefits package. The interview with the Carelink team in Wilmington, DE went well and I left feeling I had made the right decision. I received a job offer within a week of the interview, but no follow up after that. I was left in the dark about starting training and the location I had to report to. I completed the general orientation and was asked to report to the Wilmington office to shadow another employee. The moral in that office is extremely low and I heard nothing but complaints about management and the schedule. After starting my position, I barely heard from my direct manager and they almost never responded to emails. You receive a nice amount of vacation time, but using it is like pulling teeth. The Carelink department require you to work evenings and weekends, which makes it difficult to request time off. They are always short staffed because the turnover rate is high and they are almost always fighting over the schedule. I was hired salary, but flexing your time is almost non existent. I did not last 6 months in my position and I have never done that at any other job. After I submitted my two week notice, I didn't even receive a response. I had to follow up to make sure they received it. I strongly advise against working for Carelink.
work/life balance, poor management
