No but willing to get certification
I had an interview with this company in the gulf coast area of Florida. My impression is that this is a franchise type operation. I was applying for a full time recruiting type position. During the interview the owners (a husband and wife team) were coming off like they don't offer benefits because most of their employees get bennies through their spouses. Oh, really? What a crock. Low, low pay and absolutely no benefits and the simplistic illogical justification that some magic fairy is providing the benefits they don't provide and don't pay you enough to provide for yourself. Get real!

Not too difficult but you will have to be flexible with your availability. OT happens a few times/yr when there is either a shortage of caregivers (students quit during the summers and over the long holiday break) or if they pick up new clients and need us to cover their care until the office can hire/train a few more caregivers. Hope that made sense.
