What would do if a client got upset and would not calm down.

2 Answers

I told him i would just take a deep breath and step away for a few minutes!

The only thing is that the pay rate too low for the work we do. I have seen better pay rates with other companies. Plus they would give you hours for a couple of weeks then nothing to work. They promised to have available hours for in the evening to work with me with my schedule and then told me they didn't have no clients in the evening. Might want to be ready to get a second job.

Home Instead

They wanted to copy my social security card and drivers license before the interview.

2 Answers

You did the right thing, they should not have asked for this information prior to the interview. Home Instead Senior Care is not a good company to work for. They are very shady, unprofessional and do not pay their employees well. I even had an experience where they lied to me about my pay rate just because they did not have anyone to care for a client because the aide had quit on them without any notice. I agreed to work with this client until they found someone else. They promised me a certain pay rate because I would have to drive an hour to the client's house every day and because they do not pay for gas. When I got my pay check I did not get the rate that I was promised by the owner of the agency. And that same day we had a training session and they terminated me and did not give me the money that I was owed. I would advise anyone to RUN and stay away from this company. They are a bunch of Hippocrates, liars, and unprofessional individuals. They also get jealous when they find out that you have other employment. Less

I did not give it to them as this is highly unusual for a company to ask to copy these documents "before an interview". Less

How do you handle a client being angry at you or taking their anger out on you?

2 Answers

I understand that a lot of the times they're angry about their situation and it's not directly about me. Less

"How do you handle a client being angry at you or taking their anger out on you?" 1st, I'd try and sit and talk with the client very calmly and in an adult mannar about what the problem is. 2nd, I'd try and see if I could rectify the problem. 3rd, If the problem could not be resolved, then I would get in contact with my immediate supervisor and explain what the problem was and let then deal with it accordingly. Under NO circumstances would I ever start screaming at any client, no matter what the problem was, and I sure would not just abandon then client and walk out leaving them to fend for themself. Less
