    I worked at Almost Family full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My manager was great and the support staff I had made my job enjoyable. If you are out there promising things to customers that you cant deliver on you wont make it. Fortunately for me I had a team behind me who could

    Cons

    over the years, there was change in management. management should sometimes stick to whats working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make your sales meetings informational, helpful and fun...they really started declining over the years and made us feel underappreciated, and bored.

    I worked at Almost Family part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Office staff seems to care enough about clients being taken care of.

    Cons

    Employees almost never get up to full time hours, no such thing as reviews, raises, etc. Travel time is only counted as payable if you travel for half an hour or less, so if you travel for 35-45 minutes in-between clients, you won't get paid for it. Overall, this is not a position for someone trying to maintain a household - you just can't live off of 20 hours a week at $8 an hour.

    I worked at Almost Family

    Pros

    Not a thing!!!! Awful company to work for.

    Cons

    I was hired to work for this company in Kentucky, went out to my clients home to train for ONLY 3 hours and then was left to care for this client for a 9 hour shift,. No additional training was provided, never got paid for my 5 hour orientation and was never paid for working my 9 hour shift. I was threatened by my supervisor and yelled at multiple times by management.

    Pros

    The field staff are caring hard workers, most of them anyway

    Cons

    Upper management is unsupportive of middle management. Upper management makes deals and hires friends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to clean up! Support those doing the right thing and stop enabling poor behavior

    Pros

    Ability to maintain a flexible schedule

    Cons

    NO training: NO supplies: NO recognition: NO positive feedback: NO proper equipment provided; NO appropriate
    client information given to field staff: NO salary increases; NO support for staff by management: Office moral is
    negative. Office management is UNAWARE of company policies. Certainly NO CELEBRATIONS of any kind
    All employees are expected to make this job their sole priority in life, while only working PRN.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow your own policies and procedures
    Compensate your employees at a fair wage.

    Horrible

    I have been working at Almost Family

    Pros

    There are absolutely no pros for employees or clients of this company

    Cons

    Horrible management, extremely low pay with no raises, this company will pay top management million dollar bonuses but most employees go 4 to 5 yes without even a cost of living increase, these people are greedy and could care less about their employees or clients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't give advice to greedy people with no conscious

    I have been working at Almost Family as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, pleasant staff, good pay. I have been a therapist for over 20 years. We take good care of our patients and I can't tell you how many courtesy visits I have done and gotten paid for while the company did not....because a patient needed something.

    Cons

    Medicare is the challenge for me, not almost family. The requirements become more strict so the paperwork is more. I am prn so I do hear the benefits are expensive...but my husband's insurance almost doubled again this year as well and that doesn't have to do with his employer...that's new healthcare. It is a large company and decisions are made by those higher up...not always easy.
