How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Home Instead Senior Care? What are the steps along the way?
I applied online, received a call 2 days later with interview set up for early the next week. I interviewed on that Monday, was offered job with no set pay due to the difference in private/county/nursing home jobs differ. I attended 2 day orientation the following Monday (my choice b/c i was offered earlier orientation). started that week as well. Given a great client and pay slightly higher due to private pay. I already had my level 2 background screening, I had my current CPR, and had my insurance and drivers license handy when I interviewed. Drug screen given at office 1st day of orientation. I was informed they would do random drug screens (no problem for me). That was pretty much it. Pay is middle of month and last day. No direct deposit, you come into office to pick up checks. Given 1 shirt and offered used for a minimal cost and could purchase new additional shirts I would have to pay for.

What advice would you give the CEO of Home Instead Senior Care about how to improve it?
Having been a supervisor for 3 different human service agency that provided 24hr a day, 7 days a week and I believe it is paramount the supervisor is able to implement all of the tasks he or she asks the staff they supervisor directly or the worker’s supervisor. Supervisor’s need to surround themselves with others who will provide the supervisor with honest feedback, and is not to insecure to listen to it and have others the supervisor trusts listen to the information. The supervisor needs to be able to center themselves and give staff options in his or her day to be present. We are working with resilient individuals who don’t place much trust with agencies, centers, or day rehabilitation places. Any supervisor who is in support of the clients he or she is serving and his or her mission will be open to staff.
Supervisors should demonstrate a balance of working hard and having fun, see both sides of situations, set clear boundaries, follow up, take responsibility for mistakes and actions, and demonstrate respect, compassion for the clients served. The supervisor needs to be respectful of his or her staff, demonstrate good listening skills and maintain regular contacts with staff.
