CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Covington, GA – August 14, 2018
I have been with this agency for almost 2 years. They have all kinds of shifts available. They have had turnover in the scheduling positon, but they keep me busy. They allow me to work as much as I want. it has gotten better over time as they changed the manager and try ways to do nice things for the caregivers. I have told my friends to apply. The owners are nice and seem to care.
Plenty of work and the schedulers are good at telling you about the client
There are a lot of last minute shifts they try to get you to work

Working here gave me the opportunity to be able to care for someone other than myself and my children. It gave me the opportunity to work with people who were from all walks of life, people who were once able to care for themselves but were not able to upon us meeting. I was given the opportunity to love others like family.

Right at Home is a very good company to work for. They make sure you are very comfortable with you clients. An they work with you on your schedule. An they make sure you have a break an your not over worked. If you have a problem they make sure they fix it right away
Owners of this company truly care about their clients and their caregivers. Its not just a business to them. There is always room to grow and they want their staff to be successful in all they do. Awesome company

I never really had any issues working here, I liked the fact I could pick my own hours. However, the issue was when you weren't always guaranteed a full 40 hours per week. Also, when things changed they didn't offer overtime. It may have changed now.

Understandably employers want to get the most out of employees, however I left because of being expected to wear so many different hats. Great if you want to learn a lot of different things but stressful as well. Several breaking points for me:
1. Office personnel crossed trained as caregivers and expected to be able to fill shifts when no caregiver was available irregardless of the physical demands of particular clients. 2. Negative environment, micromanagement, passive aggressive personnel and lack of general support. 3, High turn over in office staff as well caregiver staff. High turn over equals higher operating costs and therefore no bonuses. They will tell you there is a bonus program (which has happened in the past) and is no longer applicable 4. Lack of proper compensation for the level of work done. The only opportunity for a raise is at the annual review. There is a 90 day review but no raise at that time. One year is a long time to hope you get a raise.
PS Owner explained the performance improvement program was common there so FYI seems like perhaps they put everyone on PIP. IMO sets up a negative work environment.
Going out to meet clients and helping people in general

Depending on the day it can be very busy or very slow depending on the day and time. I've learned very good handy tools on how to run a company and promote a business. I would say the hardest part of the job is when you try to make a client or caregiver happy when they are upset with something that went wrong with their service or schedule.
Caregiver/CNA (Current Employee) – Montgomery, AL – July 25, 2018
A typical day at work consisted of cleaning residents house for them, assiting resident with Activities of daily living, running errands for them (groceries, doc appts, med pick up...etc) I learned how to allow the resdient to regain their independence. My manager was very nice and understanding of me not having a lot of that job type experience. You have to be able to adjust to any enviroment the resident lives in because they want to feel as at home as possible even if they have someone helping them with ADL's. The most rewarding and enjoyable part of the job was seeing how happy they were that I was in their home..Someone to talk to, someone to help. I think listening to their stories and life experiences were what I enjoyed the most.
Home Health Aide (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – July 24, 2018
The manager is nice and very understanding....The secretary is ultra nice...They are always calling the staff to comfirm their availability. The manager/owner takes pride in what she does....She is always stopping by to visit clients and check to see how are they doing...Always checking with staff to see how they are doing
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – July 19, 2018
Worst place to work for and they do not care about their employees nor their clients. Clients homes were unacceptable for their living environment and did not give employees heads up to what to expect. Pay is low and not enough hours to even be called an employee.
