A lot of different culture at work you learn and develop your skills the hardest part is to get a full time work the management is good a typical day of work consist to go to a client home and take care of him

The best part about working for Visiting Angels is the work is very self rewarding. The people that you work with are very friendly.The other thing is the fact that you can work as many and as little hours as you need day or evening and weekend hours.

Travel to client's home, ADLs. Clients have many life stories, Each client's home is different. Management is hard to connect with. The passing of a client is always hard. Being there and praying with them as they pass.
Office Coordinator (Former Employee) – Upland, CA – August 17, 2018
I will never work there again, culture was that of management chastising staff in public, no support from upper management or other co-workers, I learned that no matter what with my experience and work ethics I did not need to work in an environment so toxic.
This company is non medical so if you are a CNA, LVN or RN you can’t do CPR or anything medical. Hardly any hours and you won’t get full time sometimes not even part time hours when you do it only for a short period of time. Working from 8 or less hours a week to 23. The hours are not guaranteed and stable work. You can go months without anything or hardly any hours at all. Meet and greets feel rushed they go over the careplans but leave you to figure out what you are really suppose to do. So you go in not sure what to do the office will call you on the SECOND day on the job and expect you to know what to do. The pay isn’t great for caregivers and they charge the clients too much for care. And on holidays they charge them more. Plus, NO benefits or room for advancement. So if you need something with full time don’t apply here. They tell you they have work and good hours but really it’s not. I don’t recommend working here.
No hours, no benefits, nothing full time, leaving early all the time.

I loved all of my patients but the management was terrible. They were very unorganized and weren't very willing to work with you. they would call last minute and ask you to take a shift, they were very unprofessional.
Caregiver (Current Employee) – Marble Falls, TX – August 13, 2018
A typical day at work would include meeting the family caregiver who would then give instructions and depart, leaving me with the client. I would take care of the caregiver's needs while family was either gone or otherwise busy.
Most clients were very appreciative. The hardest part of the job for me was when clients who did not think clearly yelled at me or acted out. In addition, I felt it difficult to just sit and keep someone company rather than keeping busy at a task.
The most enjoyable part of the job was when I could do something to make the client happy, or run an errand for them, or if I did a lot of housekeeping, when the family caregiver returned, they complimented me on the work.
Family caregivers who gave me instructions were often very appreciative.

you are working with different types of people, some need help toileting, trouble taking meds, have to cook meals, wash clothes, sweep or mop, run errands, etc,etc,etc. Some patients have Dementia or Alzheimer's and its a hard day sometimes with those types of people.
you can schedule your own hours
did not take out federal taxes so I could file taxes at the end of the year

Kind and compassionate work staff , most of the time very understanding if you needed time off for personal reasons . when changing the schedule they did a great job of accommodating all involved most of the time .
Caregiver (Current Employee) – Lackawanna County, PA – August 10, 2018
Pay scale is way to low, no room for improvement or promotions. Management and Scheduling need to be properly trained, not enough staff to cover shifts. Too many doubles because of staff not showing up for work. The company needs to have more staff meetings. Working environments needs to be evaluated on regular visits to accommodate the staff wants and needs to properly care for the residents.
Good company to work for, nice people and nice working environment
EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT/OFFICE MANAGER (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, GA – August 10, 2018
I enjoyed working for this company. After one year on the job, I was told I would be eligible for a raise but they said they could not afford it. I left because I was paying for my own insurance (none provided) and wanted to find a job that offered benefits.
Aide/caregiver/Cna (Former Employee) – Sykesville, MD – August 8, 2018
They collect $24-25 from client and pay $8-9.50 to aide/ caregiver. Meanwhile most companies now pay from $12-18 per hour. Visiting angels is just terrible no caregiver should waste their precious time working with them. They’re a lot of companies with much more pay and benefits
