Job stability because there is always an opening
MST delivery driver (Former Employee) –  Grapevine, TXMarch 20, 2019
The job is fine if you don’t have a life. They make promises like giving you a raise after 90 days. Never happened. They let other employees get away with not doing their job so when you go behind them the have to pick up the slack. People who had been there 5 yrs went from 14.25 to 14.75 in 5 years. Don’t believe the hype. . If you want to be out till 10:30 every night. This is your job. Insurance is a joke. You would think being in the health care business. The insurance would be good. Nope if the job paid more it would be worth it. It’s definitely not competitive pay. If you believe the world is flat. This is your job.
Pros
Fellow employees

Education focused work place
HOSPICE REPRESENTATIVE (Hospital & Physician) (Former Employee) –  Torra, CAMarch 18, 2019
Great and well respected company to work for as they are focused on education.
Unfortunately management is not in the right place, and they put big focus on CRM entry which is very time consuming.

Call Center Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAMarch 16, 2019
They need to ensure they take care of the employees they do have so they don't leave. Make sure they don't overwhelmed the employees. They start you with a good pay but the annual raises are no good. The benefits could be better/cheaper for the employees.
Pros
Tuition assistance
Cons
Management gets involved in gossip and raises.

Poor Management
Staff (Former Employee) –  Middlebury, CTMarch 16, 2019
During my tenure there, we had 4 General Managers. Turnover was horrendous. No loyalty, recognition or appreciation shown to the employees. Qualified people were not allowed to advance unless you were a favorite.
Pros
Close to home
Cons
Compensation, Benefits, Lack of opportunities for advancement

Initially a Great Place to Work
TRIAGE Nurse followed by Team Nurse (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 15, 2019
Initially Vitas was a great place to work. However, there is favoritism within the local corporate office. Some employees, spend hours on Facebook, making personal calls on company time, while others were working their fanny off.
In addition, there were people hired into management positions because they were friends with the Administrator. They were put into an administrative/clinical position to supervise nurses when they had no clinical license or clinical experience. To me that doesn't sound like very good management for hospice.
Pros
Initially a great company to work for
Cons
Supervisors with no health care experience

Ex: work load, you dont have time to take a 5 minute break, or a lunch. No overtime, never. However 1 secretary per 100 patients, 1 mgr. Horrible scenario on day to day basis. Patients call constantly, wheres my nurse. I haven't been seen or given a bath in a week. Very sad. Promise patients the very best of care, then doesn't here from Vitas for week.
Pros
None
Cons
Poor mgmt. No free time for Dr. Appts. Poor communication.

Large, stable company
Telecare/dispatch (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXMarch 12, 2019
Due to being a large company with many branches in numerous cities, you can move up, change hours (after certain time-frame) or relocate. There was a large variety of options for end-of-life care that smaller places can't provide, such as in-patient facility and respite care, more options with treatment and comfort care. They didn't skimp on quality to save a dime. The downside was options for shifts if you didn't work M-F 8-5...you could do 7 on 7 off, on call, 4pm-8am which turned out being 3pm to anywhere from 8am, to 10am, depending on how fast your relief got there. You end up busy entire shift and vy the end of your 7 on, you are exhausted and sleep for your first fee days off. 7 days off seems like a lot but you end up playing catch-up with your life thst is on hold while at work.
(they give you heads up on upcoming visits at 3-3:45pm, which weekday staff should cover but sometimes dump on you). Other shift option was Friday eve or night and double shifts Sat and Sun, which wasn't so bad. I worked in Dallas and covered what seemed like the whole upper part of Texas, this being said, you are in some shady places alone at night. Hospice is very rewarding and Vitas a great company.
Pros
Large, no lack of quality, good, stable company
Cons
2nd/3rd shift options, shady parts of town

Highly stressful work environment
RN Case Manager Hospice (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXMarch 10, 2019
The atmosphere at the office was oppressive, like a cloud of stress hanging over them. There was a high turn over of nurses in particular due to the work load, unrealistic expectations, and condescending attitudes by some of the managers toward the staff. The field staff - aides, nurses, doctors, social worker, chaplain - were wonderful, as were the patients and their families. It is sad that there was such a disconnect between the good work the clinical staff was doing and the management who did not value them near as much as they should have.
Pros
Ethical, good clinical staff
Cons
Poor management, lack of appreciation for staff, duplication

A corrupt company
Social Worker (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLMarch 4, 2019
This company is corrupt. A lot of promises had been made to patients and their families that were not followed through with while patients were passing away. Decisions are made that are for the benefit of the company not the patients or families although claims are made by upper management that patients and caregivers come first.

Amazing and educational
LPN Crisis Care (Former Employee) –  Maitland, FLFebruary 24, 2019
Working for Vitas was an incredible experience. The care and kindness that goes into every situation is carefully thought out and thoughtful. The people were the most compassionate people I've ever worked for. I would go back in a heart beat when the right position opens up. Thank you Vitas for displaying exactly what caring and compassionate nursing is all about.

Great work terrible management
Home Care Provider (Current Employee) –  Livingston, NJFebruary 19, 2019
Work is rewarding
Management is constantly changing due to incompetence, most often you have to reach out to corporate for clarification and answers.
When in office you are bombarded with gossip.
2 of my coworkers quit due to bullying from management and office staff.
The physicians are helpful and knowledgeable and always willing to help.
The most enjoyable part of the job is time spent with patients helping through them such a hard time.
If you are not salaried you are not guaranteed hours even if you are hired as full time.
