It's a great place to work. Follow the rules, be on time, and you won't have any issues.

Depends on how much butt you kiss. that is the one company I've vowed to never work for. east Tennessee community homes is hiring. better pay, better benefits, state job, better work environment. come to dogwood cottage at Greene valley.

And never request a day off and go in on every off day.

They're pretty much a horrible place to work for. More management then anything. It's double standards. It's OK for. Supervisors to walk around wearing flip flops and drinking a sweet tea from McDonald's, but as a staff person it's against the rules. It's also OK for upper management to take personal calls on company cell phones, plus bring their personal cell phones and use them. If staff get caught with their cell phones its pretty much automatically a write up or termination.not to mention if your a parent and your child is sick, might as well go on into work cause you can't call in. You'll pretty much get 200 hours of sick time to that you'll never be able to use unless you are knocking at deaths door. The list goes on and on and on. And you can complain during your exit interview, but nothing will change

So, you signed the cell phone rule when you hired in. What about that did you not understand? True, there are times when an understaffing issue exists and you may have to come in until they can get you out. Overtime is optional.....so chill.Constructive criticism and complaining are 2 different things. Your exit interview was probably the best for all concerned.

oh I understood everything. That I signed. If it went for one, shouldn't it go for all? There was no Claus saying only upper management. As for overtime yes you could get all you want but only because someone got fired over something petty.

absolutely! thirds is probably the easiest shift to get on. besides I know of at least three homes looking for another third shift person plus we're getting ready to build four new homes that will need total staffing

If you gave 2 weeks notice, they'd probably bring you back. Of course, Comcare is like a lot of other places in that when someone leaves, the supervisores are given a form that asks " would hire again...why or why not" and the answer they gave would influence you being re-hired.

Then no...probably not. the thing I hate about that place is that they give you such a hard time about getting proof of your training. I have never seen a company not give cpr/first aid cards to their staff. one girl I know ended up having to go directly to The red cross for a copy of her card cause comcare wouldn't give it to her. its ridiculous

I doubt any employer would re-hire someone who quit without notice. What would keep you from doing it again?
When you take training classes on an employer's time, they have the right to keep all the documents or certificates. Get over it.

I never said they didn't have the right. most employers, however, want you to be able to produce proof of training if anyone should ask to see it (esp. cpr/first aid). I have been in countless surveys by icf and been asked to show my cpr card. so yes I suppose it is their right but its also senseless. No other agency does that.

I've read everything posted here. Some things being said about comcare are true, some are not. Let's see which are and arent.
They're pretty much a horrible place to work for.(not horrible but not great) More management then anything.( true, there are at least two supervisors, per supervisor) It's double standards, It's OK for. Supervisors to walk around wearing flip flops and drinking a sweet tea from McDonald's, but as a staff person it's against the rules.(this is 100% true, seen it many times). It's also OK for upper management to take personal calls on company cell phones, plus bring their personal cell phones and use them.( true again, and dont forget the people who work in the front offices who wear headsets all day and take personal phone calls). If staff get caught with their cell phones its pretty much automatically a write up or termination.not to mention if your a parent and your child is sick, might as well go on into work cause you can't call in.(true, they dont approve of a darn call in) You'll pretty much get 200 hours of sick time to that you'll never be able to use unless you are knocking at deaths door.(true, because they'll say they cant let you off cause they're short staffed) The list goes on and on and on. And you can complain during your exit interview, but nothing will change.( true again, did mine, nothing changed).
Well I guess I have to change my original statement...it's all true. HA!

You know that staff can not eat or drink things not supplied by Comcare in front of the clients when on duty in a home or at the DP. You know how behaviors start. Supervisors don't do it either.
Open toe shoes are not allowed for safety reasons.
If any supervisors are breaking rules, they should be reported.
Short staffing issues do exist, and sometimes employees are asked to report to work when they call in.
Simple, ain't it?
