Southeast Wyoming. $11/hr. Doesn't matter what shift you work, unless you are doing an overnight "sleep" (ha, right!) shift, then it's only $9/hr (not worth it, still have to work and flip your days/nights over, so I say "no" to those clients). I have 20+ yrs in the medical field and as a caregiver, have worked for the company for almost 2 years, no raise in sight and have never heard of anyone getting one. I work overnight shifts, varying from 10 - 16 hours, depending on how short staffed we are. Daytime staff work anywhere from 1 - 24 hours, depending on the need and the agreement with the client/family.

At Jackson, TN when I worked there... Starting pay was $8.50 but there was a company wide 50 cent raise so now it is $9.00/hr. There is also a perfect attendance raise of 50 cents after three months. Then the company utilizes a sliding pay scale where your pay increases dependent upon the level of care the client needs. The shifts available depend on what you say you're available for and what times the client needs a caregiver.

For experienced CG, $14.00 and you’re stuck with that. Hahaha!!

Shift hours? They’ll force you to work on weekends and nights, even if you’ve made it clear that you want only certain days. Otherwise, you don’t have clients, really.

In CA it's 12 and hour, and 12.50 for weekends and over time. But the hours are not guaranteed, it's all based on who needs a caregiver from the company.
