    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.

    Pros

    Excellent clinicians who really care about the patients

    Cons

    The favoritism is rampant. If you are new coming in you are not treated like the core group who have been there for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire new people if you have no interest in working w/ them.

    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.

    I worked at Almost Family part-time (less than a 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.

    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
