Independent Living Assistant (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – October 30, 2018
If you enjoy the personal challenge of making a difference in someones life, then HIL is a great place to help make that happen. You have to build skills that enable you to act quick in times of distress and complication. It is a stressful job at times, mainly due to the nature of the caregiver and aiding mentally impaired or special needs adults.
Clients are amazing. Best part of being a caretaker.

to many women managers making decisions based on feels managers LIE way to much you may not be able to go home after your shift people come when they want to. way to much gossip an not enough working they dont care about you as a person
bonding with the clients an teaching an learning from them everyday
not being able to go home for days, the worst management team in the world, stressful to the max, the most cold heartened people i have ever met in my life.

Its a tough business, but HIL is the best in what they do. Very dedicated staff who work hard. Supervisors need to work with caregivers and listen to them. Clients are wonderful but can be very challenging. PTO policy is great, and they now offer Holiday Pay in addition to the PTO.
developing relationships with clients, getting to take them into the community and getting paid for it
Caregiver (Current Employee) – West Bend, WI – January 1, 2019
There is constantly no staff at this company so they will put staff on the floor working only 1 person with 4-7 clients, most of which need full assistance. The management does not care about client or staff welfare. At one house the manager would go on vacation three or four times a year, telling staff they had to cover the hours while she was gone or she would write them up. There is a ton of staff on staff gossip and management is the worst for this. They will talk about staff members to other staff members or share personal information that was meant to be between the staff member and the supervisor.
Cbrf Caregiver (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – November 20, 2018
I worked there for 4 months and lordt it was the worst! Upper management dont know how to treat employees. A lot of gossip and I'm the type to stay to myself. I was mandated to do 2nd shift route on a bus that I had to teach myself how to drive. They lie to lure u in but never receive full benefits promised. Constant schedule changes and to many responsibilities for one person. Loved clients but couldn't deal with the repeated disrespect from upper management. Be expected to not have a life, and your kids to miss u. Family emergencies they dont care about. They hate for employees to tell them no if asked to work on off days and doubles. I've gotten so attached to the clients that it broke my heart to leave....I'll miss them but I just couldn't see a long term commitment with a company that doesn't appreciate the employees. Get your money and run!
Horrible managemant, stressful, and way to many cons.
Member of a behavioral health team (Former Employee) – Waukesha, WI – November 10, 2018
assisted with the personal care of the mentally challenged. Set up the work schedule for staff payroll, time off. Documented all behavioural issues of client monitor medications and bank accounts outgoing and incoming status. Set up menu, doctors appointments and provided personal hygiene items. The hardest part was the clients deceased or being taken from the facility, The most enjoyable part was the interaction and challenges that the clients overcame with the mental disabilities.
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Weston, WI – October 18, 2018
I've enjoyed my time at HIL so far. I enjoy taking care of the person I'm assigned to and like the one on one staffing. They provide all training, and submit certifications to the state registry, PTO is great and very competive for the field. Negatives would be traveling 3 hours round trip for classes, they do pay mileage but if you're taking a company vehicle that's 6 hours per day of unpaid work related time. The other negative for my program specifically is the NEGATIVITY it's almost constant from half of my co-workers. They seem to have nothing good to say about the job or our member and it can be extremely frustrating. They offer complaints but not solutions which is a huge pet peeve. I just don't know how long I can handle the cattiness and the total lack of empathy or respect between shifts. It really makes me miss my last job and the family feel we had for over 6 years.
Active job, rewarding, good benefits, 7 on/7 off schedule, great supervisor.
For a company that provides care, hil has no compassion for employees
DSS (Former Employee) – Waukesha, WI – September 27, 2018
Having my MBA in Marketing and over 35 years of management experience (In my last corporate position, I was a VP of Marketing for a $2.3B company based in Los Angeles), I understand that an employee’s job performance increases with recognition, appreciation, and simple words like “thanks,” “awesome,” and “nice!” A happy employee is a productive employee. When management is constantly writing up employees, being critical, castigating them infront of peers and guardians, and even stating they know absolutely nothing about their staff, the only culture they’re cultivating is a hostile work environment and a miserable place to work. Words of advice to HIL upper management... When the president of any company sees a pile of trash as he walks into a crowded employee lunchroom and then can look for a broom with a dust pan and proceed to humbly clean it up himself, his humility will earn him so much more than what bullying and fear could, would or ever will. HIL doesn’t understand that principle.
Under paid, stressful, physically & mentally draining job
Caregiver (Part-time) (Former Employee) – Sheboygan, WI – September 20, 2018
Always under staffed, probably because of the LOW PAY. This type of work can be rewarding but extremely difficult. Especially when under staffed meaning you will have to work double hard to make up for it I had worked for the company for 7 years only to earn a 1.70 raise by the time i quite...
They show no appreciation....no holiday...only care about money

Insured the staff (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – August 22, 2018
Caring for others is not a job for everyone. The home health care industry has a fast turnover rate for a reason. Many people come into this industry thinking it is an easy paycheck. Somedays yes it is easy, others days you will hate your job. Those that truly care for what they are doing will stay, those that are just there for a paycheck move on.
Caregiver (Current Employee) – Fort Atkinson, WI – August 22, 2018
This is one of those jobs where if your heart isn't in it its not for you. This is a very demanding job. Some clients are more capable of doing things on their own but more you have to do everything for them. If you cant handle being on your feet and dealing with the short staff sometimes this would not be the job for you.
Program Manager (Former Employee) – Sturtevant, WI 53177 – August 16, 2018
this is a fast paced and very fun place to work for. the clients are amazing and the experience they give you is above and beyond anything. I worked in three of the homes for clients and everyone was a life changing experience
Medical Assistant/ Caregiver (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 13, 2018
When working here you have to have a good heart and patience for people with special needs. Management aren't always flexible with their personal schedule. If the next scheduled staff member does not come in for shift management will expect staff to figure it out.
