Senior Living Advisor (Former Employee) – Pennsylvania – 6 September 2017
While it seems like you are going to help people, what you are really doing is hunting down referral money from desperate families that mistakenly go to A Place for Mom online not knowing the advisors typically know little more than they do.
Calls are around the clock and you are trapped in your home working here. I live in a less affluent area, so there was little chance of securing referrals and the senior housing and facilities were too depressing and offensive smelling while being expensive none the less.
Run away from this organization, they will be soul sucking, not people helping. My manger was demeaning and sarcastic, she left much to be desired from my experience with a Place for Mom. I earned next to nothing and felt like a leech on society. Most of your time is hounding people who you gave a list of facilities to and following up to see if they booked a stay for their family member, so APFM can collect on a referral fee.
Sales Director/Senior Living Advisor Lead (Current Employee) – Eugene, OR – 3 August 2017
I loved working at a place for mom but needed to relocate. They are kind and fair. Their training is excellent. They have firm but fair expectations. They are a relaxed culture and genuinly care about their employees.
Work from home options and great comission packages.
Advisor (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – 26 June 2017
Dont let the work form home fool you. You are chained to your computer and headset. They are always listening. You have to work every other weekend and then can only take off on a Wed or Thursday for working those days. Some days you will have a split shift 9-12 and then 5-9. Pay is 30k per year for full time!
Operations Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – 25 June 2017
I have been working with this company for over 5 years, and it has changed dramatically. It is still changing, as they are branching out into different senior resources and technology. The culture is very progressive, and they seem to really care about their employees, and the community. They have team get togethers and contests all the time. The monetary compensation could be better, but we do have a lot of benefits, (401K, bonuses, PTO, incentives etc.).
Senior Living Advisor (Current Employee) – Virginia – 25 May 2017
Advisors spend most of the day providing education and counseling for families who need resources or care for their elderly loved ones. This is a phone sales job and you will be on the phone all day, but having the ability to work from home is wonderful! You work at least 40 hours every week. The management team is tough but very fair. If you are a hard worker and like to help people then it may be a good fit. We help families during the toughest time of their lives and it is incredibly rewarding.
I am grateful to be part of a great organization that is mission driven. This position is a true outside sales,developing and cultivating relationships to increase leads but for me its exciting. Not many positions reward you financially and emotionally at the same time.
Senior Living Advisor (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – 23 May 2017
I am entering my third year with this amazing company! My typical day is fast paced and rewarding. At the end of the day, I rest well knowing how many families or individuals I have helped. They depend on our expertise. Management provides educational tools to make us successful as Senior Living Advisers. I take much pride in my Regional Manager who consistently mentors each of us and we are always reminded that we are "valuable". The workplace culture is supportive and communicative. I love my fellow teammates! Feels like family. The hardest part of the job is finding out about a loved one that has passed, but at the same time, it gives me great pleasure in knowing that I was able to assist during the time of the need, and seeing the family through the process of the placement with our valuable Partners.
Working from home;wonderful benefits package; financial opportunity
A Place for Mom is a great place to work with a lot of opportunity to advance.

I have been at APFM for about 6 months now, it has been wonderful, everyone has been so nice! The work flow is great, I stay busy all day and I'm off before I know it.

Community Relations Advisor (Current Employee) – California – 22 May 2017
I've never worked for a company before that I could truly say that I love what I do & where I work .....until I started with APFM. I've been able to help so many seniors, families and professionals and still be able to spend quality time with my family! No job/career is perfect, but it is what you make of it, the time, effort & energy you put into it and believe it to be...so with that being said this is the best job ever! I really love what I do and getting up everyday to help someone!
Lot's of them! Flexible schedule, Great benefits, Salary & employee incentives
A lot of changes that can be hard to keep up with, but I guess change is a part of life
Stellar time management & deep love of people required
Senior Living Advisor (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – 22 May 2017
I have been working as a senior living advisor with A Place for Mom for a little over 3 years. Overall, it's a great role. I work from home, & the schedule is somewhat flexible. I have two small children & have always been able to get the time I need to be there for them & for the last-minute things that come up when you have little ones. That is extremely valuable to me. The compensation at this job is great, if you make/exceed the monthly expectation - I have had other roles in my career before with higher level titles, but made nowhere near the income that I have made with this role. Make no mistake though - this is absolutely a 40hr/wk+ job. The hardest thing about this job is time management, self discipline & staying in contact with a huge caseload of families that you are trying to assist. If you are no good at multi-tasking (talking on the phone, while writing an email, while reading other emails coming in) you will fail at this job. You absolutely must be able to self-start -You are alone all day long. If you thrive in a "team environment" working physically with others, you will not like this job. You must become very adept at "active listening" & be able to anticipate what families are going to need, while staying in constant "follow up mode" with the properties that you are trying to connect them to as a potential option for their loved one. You must have a high level of emotional intelligence & empathy.Having said that, you must be able to emotionally cope with hearing a lot of very sad things all week & still be OK. The most enjoyable part of this job ismore... working from home ( or anywhere with high-speed internet hook up) & the gratitude from the families that you connect with & help. It's absolutely amazing the connections I have made & I feel honored that the families I have assisted allow me to be a part of their journey in finding care for their beloved family members. It is a privilege.less
work from home. uncapped income potential. helping people in need.
alone all day. high-speed multitasking . monthly quotas.

Recruiter (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – 22 May 2017
A Place for Mom is a fast paced environment that is always looking for ways to improve - so you're job is never really the same from day to day. I've been here for 6 years and the way we've evolved in those years has been really exciting to be a part of.
