    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!

    Pros

    flexibility with schedule but not all the time

    Cons

    They dont pay you enough to compensate all the driving and they dont care if you have to drive a lot, they just give you assignment without changing first if they may have visits close to your home.

    I worked at VITAS Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Personal time off is good

    Cons

    This place is toxic and such toxicity is promoted by the inexperienced upper management team. The Dade Program has as GMs 3 individuals with no leadership/management skills at all. The way they manage is by delegating everything... they sit in their offices all day, order food and eat there, attend meetings and go out to dine and wine at the company's expense. Salaries are a joke, ridiculously low... high only for GMs and VPO who promotes favoritism . Please stay away from this company for your own sanity !!!

    Former Employee - Patient Care Coordinator in Miramar, FL

    I worked at VITAS Healthcare part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you have a good supervisor the process will be easier to handle. Work life balance is great

    Cons

    The work schedules could be better to ensure staffing numbers are adequate for all shifts. There is always a gap or a lack of heads to meet the needs especially on the weekends. They recruit people to work mainly weekends and nights however that will cause burn out. Which increases the revolving door Low pay
