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.
Large, no lack of quality, good, stable company
2nd/3rd shift options, shady parts of town
