Former Employee - RN Staff Nurse

I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time

Pros

The pay and benefits are good. Reliable income. One manager walked into a terrible situation and did more than someone could ask for given the mess.

Cons

Work load triple what it should be. Was told corp did not care about quality and could ask them myself. Made a mistake with me and would not make it right. Management wrote up too quickly. Had a VP... that was so bad no one would talk to her. Did not recognize things like no falls in 14 months, code blue 2 a week to 1 in three months. Par for dressing supplies was 34 when actual needed was 54 nothing done about it.

Advice to Management

Have realistic expectations.

Sales Representative

I worked at VITAS Healthcare

Pros

It's great to offer Vitas services to the physicians offices and hospitals. Vitas is the best in caring for your love ones. The nurses and the caregivers are amazing,they really care!

Cons

Stressful job due to pressure from your manager. 1st time you don't hit your monthly goal the rep will get verbal warning. 2nd month you don't hit your goal the rep will get written warning, 3rd... month is final written warning and 4th month the rep is out! The turnover for this job is fast, Vitas can't hold on to great Reps due to pressure given by the management. Once the rep hits the goal on a monthly basis, the manager will increase your goal the following quarter not considering a lot of factors. I loved doing my job as a Vitas but the unreasonable pressure is too much!

Advice to Management

Be considerate of your Reps, don't give them unreasonable goals to achieve!
