Uncaring towards their staff and whats worse their clients. The staff work so so hard for the company for rubbish pay. I've had situations where I haven't been given travel time in between clients and end up being very late and then having to cut short my visits. They underpaid me one month which ment I couldn't pay bills. They are liars and over work the carer's. I love being a carer and it will always be my career but working for comfort keepers was a joke. I'm very surprised to see so many positive comments left for this company, they must have wrote most of them themselves. I know several employees working for comfort keepers that can't wait to leave. If you would like to gain experience in caring then it is a good company to join as they would take on anyone but be prepared to be broke all the time for paying out on fuel, and also be prepared for an awful lot of unprofessional bullying behaviour from them. You get given mostly 30 minute calls which aren't even worth the time and don't pay.

Clients and address with their contacts are sent to you and the time start to end, usually 1 hour job per client and can return back for another 30 minutes later when under your tasks. I could cover up to 6 clients in a day
