Because Home Instead caretakers are paid so little, I make certain my house is spotless and food is prepared, waiting in the refrigerator for my 94-yr. old father. I tell each caretaker they are here for the sole purpose of making sure he eats and to call 911 in case...

This organization is very clear that they do not provide care for indefinite periods of time. Their workers have lives too. Perhaps it’s time to stick your father in a nursing...

They treat the caregivers like slaves and only pay them minimum wage. On top of that they demand 12 hour shifts with no notice of their schedules with less than 24 hours notice. Being exempt from overtime pay still seems like a violation of some labor law. If you were...

Employee Experience Review

Home Instead
#508768
Horrible company to work for. Absolutely NO Training! Lasted 5 weeks and told did not fit culture of the office. Very rude and inconsiderate. Finally told me after I called the next day the real reason was let go was not enough work. Go figure. Could have said that in the first place. Very disappointed in this company.

They do not take care of their employees- the ones that aren't working in the office. They do not conduct follow-ups with the clients and caregivers and rarely make home visits. They are rude and condescending to the caregivers and have horrible scheduling. If you like...

I worked for them for 5.6 yrs. Once I refused to take care of two seniors in one home and getting paid for only one, I was let go? The franchise collected insurance from both seniors in the same household. They got double pay, I provided double care but only got paid...

You get paid an hourly wage to be a companion. Why should you get paid double for two people when you are not working double the hours? It’s not like you’re providing skilled ...

Really

Its seems odd to me that a lot of the complaints are from disgruntled employees. Why would a website allow employees to comment on a company

Oh yeah, their very compassionate, right, could of fooled me. After suing me for subpar work for $8,000.00, it turned into a $18,000.00 judgment, so far taking $4.4K out of my bank account, then levying the rest on any property I owned. These people are heartless,...

No, it's still not resolved, I'm still in medical therapy and the x-rays don't look good either. Arco, is still hiding, but not for long, not after they get served.

The caliber of people who write these reviews should tell you why the company let them go! Really take a look at yourself. This is an excellent company to work for and truly cares about its clients and CareGivers. Training is provided for every one you just have to...
