    I have been working at Home Instead Senior Care part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The staff are just awesome. They are very supportive to their clients and their staff.

    Cons

    Pay or compensation sucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider paying people for their prior experiences and training which they bring to the company. Add mileage pay; traveling 45 minutes to a job and longer in bad weather puts a toll on cars, you want us to use our vehicles if need be but no mileage pay is BS.

    I worked at Home Instead Senior Care

    Pros

    Get to meet new people and build relationships

    Cons

    zero hour contract
    your told lots of work available in the interview to get you in but then your left begging for work
    not paid between clients
    clients always under the 5 mile radius so pay your own mileage, caused when slots are more than an hour apart because your going out but not getting money for that fuel.
    office staff are not bothered if your unhappy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your staff
    value your clients

    They pay $9.00 / hour for a caregiver which one is not a wage that one is able to support a family on.

    Pros

    If you're passion is making a person's end of life satisfying and safe then this company is for you.

    Cons

    If you're single and want a livable sustainable wage run from this job. The wage is impossible to live on. Driving sometimes 35 miles or more to a clients home with no gas reimbursement puts a defeating blow to your pay. 1/3 to 2/3 of what you earn (which is measely) goes into your tank for gas to get to job site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no words because the pay within all in-home health care businesses in the state are in the same pathetic pay scale (range).
