Home Instead Work Experience Review from Fairview, New Jersey

Am working for them and have met some women who are not well trained. Also made friends with ones like me who have lots of experience. Some families confuse us with the maid but its hit or miss with the clients.

Don't ever believe what they say on their initial visit they will say whatever they have to to get the job. They also will quickly get the children un-involved by manipulating the elderly they threatened my parents who are on assistance to the point they will not...

Home Instead caregivers took wonderful care of my elderly aunt and gave us the peace of mind we needed. I know that sounds like an ad, but no one paid me for this--it is entirely based on our experience. Perhaps the office and location make a difference but we never...

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...

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...
