Human Services Worker (Former Employee), Saint John NB – November 5, 2014
Pros: it was laid back.
Cons: management was very unorganized
I worked 5 days a week caring for an elderly lady. I learned that I really love working with people. I was very organized. I didnt work with co-workers as I worked on my own. The hardest part of the job was dealing with toileting issues, however that wasn't that bad at all. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my client. She was amazing – more... and a joy to be around. A typical day at work was coming in, getting my client bathed and ready for the day. We would hang out and talk and watch movies and enjoy each others company. I would clean her house every day and take her to church on Sundays, which she loved. – less
Established company with room for advancement for thier employees
Nursing Supervisor (Former Employee), Owensboro, KY – December 15, 2014
Busy LTC facilty with room for advancement for employees. Open staff/management relationships. Good teamwork. I learned to include the long term care aspect of pt care. They did however have a high staff turn over rate resulting in consistant pt care difficult and an over load for the staff present. I enjoyed our residents greatly, they depend and trust – more... us as caregivers and become attached to us as we do them! They were the most enjoyable part of this job by far. – less
Business Office Manager (Former Employee), Indianapolis, IN – December 6, 2014
A typical day at work meant keeping up with the many reports that were required weekly on top of doing my job. Hiring good, reliable people sometimes became impossible due to the low salaries. The most enjoyable part of my job was when I left.

my typical day at this job would be assisting patients and the doctor having everything ready and focused on getting my job done and make sure all patients and doctor is satisfied, I learned how to clean wounds and what not to do or what not to say, my co-workers were amazing, friendly, and very helpful I was trained as soon as I became part of the – more... family and it was so easy they explained everything to every detail and I managed to learn immediately, the hardest part of this job was keeping the patients satisfied and letting them understand that it would be awhile before they would be seen the most enjoyable part of this job was knowing that the patients were all taking care of and that their on their way to getting better. – less

Pharmacy Technician/Inventory Specialist (Current Employee), Aurora, CO – November 28, 2014
Cons: healthcare, raises
Overall the work place environment is great, although we have had a continuous turnover of management. The company has stopped paying for our health insurance,401K, took away our employee appreciation committee. The nurse's are overworked as well as the CNA's. We have monthly meetings and discussions about what will make Kindred a better place to work – more... to no avail. – less

RN (Former Employee), Lafayette, LA. – November 15, 2014
Pros: loved my patients!
Cons: everything else!
You first start out in orientation, which is about 4 weeks, then you are out on your own. Hourly rate was good to have at that time, at least you are making money at that point. Then you are switched to the per visit rate, which varies, depending on the type of visit it is: admission, discharge, recertification, resumption of care. Also, I was hired – more... as a full-time Psych Nurse, but mostly received Med-Surg patients; you get paid more for psych visits than medical ones. Was not told by management that this would be the case, and when it was brought to their attention, they corrected me that I HAD to do both. If you have a gas guzzling vehicle, forget about applying, as they only compensate $0.40 per mile, based on the companies assessment of your mileage and not actual mileage. Also, the amount of work involved is WORSE that hospital documentation standards and you work WAY past your shift trying to complete the massive amounts of data required to collected on ALL visits. Poorly organized from the top to the bottom, but staff is friendly, at times. If you can work for this company, consider case management, as it is part of the job, whether you have experience in it or not. – less
