Reviews

A variety of cultures that can come together to work as one

Support from management

Yes management is amazing and supportive

Teamwork

Yes, we are encouraged to learn from each other

Freedom to work independently

Yes a must to trust working on your own

Internal Communication

Communication is above great

Gender Equality

Absolutely. Mostly women work here but some men do also

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yes many aged over 45 are employed

Career Development

Not much growth can be done but job isn't for anyone

Overall compensation for your work

Not so much. The work performed absolutely deserves more compensation

Office / Work Environment

As best as possible because we work in the home of others it isn't always possible

Environmental Friendliness

Nit encouraged enough but us mentioned occasionally

Company Image

Workplace Safety

Challenging Work

Hardest job I have ever enjoyed to have

Inclusive / Diverse

Yes, always willing to consider the ideas and thoughts of every person employed

Suggestions for improvement

  • Some homes are to horrific for anyone to live in and it would help I'd we had the ability to remove someone from a bad environment and move to a better one.

What I like about the company

I love my job and my boss. Having a college degree I still wouldn't want to work anywhere else. It is the best job I've ever had and even though it can be difficult physically, mentally and emotionally I still find it rewarding. It isn't for just anyone because many could not do the daily tasks needed but those who can will understand the importance of you and what you mean to the person you care for and to thier family. You have the ability to choose your schedule to fit your personal daily life and management works with you and is constantly supportive. You are appreciated by management and by your clients. You are appreciated just for showing up because to many you are the best part of thier day. The hardest part of this job is when you lose someone you have become very close to and at times it may cause you to want to quit but than you realize there is someone else out there needing you just as important as the last one.

What I dislike about the company

When schedules must be changed and you change the client or clients you had.

Company Culture

Everyone, including in office personel, all worked towards a common goal, and that was to provide, safety, confidence, security, and happiness to our seniors.

Support from management

Present company pretty much

Teamwork

Not hard not to because we love our work and respect eachother because we know the challenges

Freedom to work independently

All caregivers work independently

Internal Communication

All were ontop of caretakers concerns when reported

Gender Equality

Made up of mostly women

Attitude towards older colleagues

Started in my 40's and loved working there

Career Development

Yes, but classes are usually when I'm working

Overall compensation for your work

Yes and No, I worked in the same type of work for 6 years, and when I moved toa differnt state, and started with a differnet company having 6 years, and several letters of recomondation, was place at the bottom of them pay scale, and have had to work my way up, and after 5 years still am not anywhere close to where I was back home

Office / Work Environment

We were always told to let them know if a caretaker and client blended well or not, and if not changes were made to make the caretaking pleasant for both parties

Environmental Friendliness

Yes always

Work-Life Balance

This type of work is considered per diem

Job Security

position stable as far as staying with the company, but sometimes in this work things can cahnge with clients where service is cancled and if company can't find a sub shift then you don't work

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes because of the type of company it is

Workplace Safety

That is the number 1 priority to makes sure a clients home is safe for client and caretaker

Challenging Work

Working with people with alzheimers, and dementia is very challenging

Inclusive / Diverse

Again as I've said great place to work, and every employee, and client are treated with resepect on all levels

Suggestions for improvement

  • Lets see, as I said better pay, when a client and caretaker don't gel (which is important) having to fill out forms, and wait 2 weeks to be taken off the case and put onto another, should be done ASAP, for educational classed should be offered online so the employee can take at their leisure, because as I said before they have all classes during regular work week hrs., and alot cannot make the classes due to working.

What I like about the company

I don't work for Comfort Keepers anymore, but everything was a positive experience, I loved all the clients I worked with, all the in office staff, wages were increased yearly according to your performance (which is with any company), no charge for background ck. All concerns with clients were addressed in a timely manor. I learned alot.

What I dislike about the company

Present company (not Comfort Keepers)...They need to pay higher wages especially to employees who have experience, because being a caretaker although very rewarding, can be mentally and physically taxing.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better pay, especially for the employees that are on task for everything that needs to be done. I would be much happier with my job if the compensation was better.

What I like about the company

My direct manager is very helpful and knowledgeable. The owner seems helpful but when it comes down to it, doesn't do anything unless it is beneficial to themselves rather than the client/employee.

What I dislike about the company

Pay rates are not good. With the level of work and skill required for the job, pay increases are very small. Reimbursement for travel is needed but not given as needed.
