Good job for extra money only, could not live off this job. I love working with the elderly 1 on 1 and Visiting Angels is a great place for that.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Hurst, TX – November 29, 2018
Visiting Angel could never be a main job for me. Only a second job for extra money. They don’t pay enough and I have to much experience and worth for what they pay. However management is very respectful to the employees and that goes a long way with me but not enough that I can ever make it my main job. Also the work isn’t Persistent and that is to be expected in home health. There isn’t anywhere to grow, and keep your skills up working there because it’s mostly low level care needed. I love the one on one care because you can bond and actually give the clients your best. That’s the best part about it. I really don’t have anything bad to say about the hurst location, because it’s not just Visiting Angels with low pay, no benefits, fluctuating hrs. etc. , it’s almost all home health agencies. It’s just the way the business goes. If they give out to much they aren’t making anything themselves and they can only charge the client so much or the client will move on to a different company. Some agencies do pay a $1 or $2 more than Visiting Angels though.
1 on 1 care, bonds are built, self schedule available
Under paid, hrs can fluctuate, no pto or benefits, bi weekly pay.
