How to Get Hired
We asked Care To Stay Home for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
Through the hiring experiences of past employees, Care To Stay Home has developed a list of the key characteristics found among our most successful hires. They are: availability, accessibility, adaptability, gratefulness, intelligence, proactiveness, integrity, professionalism, reliability, and self-awareness. In our industry, our employees are responsible for the care of a highly vulnerable population. This means that our hiring process needs to be highly rigorous, allowing only those candidates into the organization whom we believe will operate ethically and with care in situations without supervision. In-home care, one of the most common emergency situations is a Caregiver calling out of a shift. We are responsible for ensuring our clients are taken care of, and therefore need to have dependable backups in place. Many of the characteristics included above are shared by those employees who help us to resolve these emergency situations.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
The first chance our recruiting department has to consider a candidate is most often through the application, submitted online. Other avenues prospective Caregivers can pursue are calling our general office phone number (949-916-6705), or even better- acquainting with a current employee of ours and earning a referral. We are most impressed by qualifications like CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) or HHA (Home Health Aide) certifications, proving an interest and commitment to the industry. We also look for experience working with either, other Homecare agencies, facilities (where they would have likely worked with a variety of patients), or private clients. The more experience, the better. Caregivers with experience offering the services of our “Maximum-level care” clients are the most attractive- with a background in assisting with full transfers (using tools such as gait belts and hoyer lifts), as well as working with bedridden clients who require regular bed baths and diaper changes.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
The focus of our hiring needs in the coming year is for Caregivers. In November 2017, we opened our second office location in Torrance, California with the intention of separating the management of our Orange County and Los Angeles County clients, and subsequently increasing the density of clients in each area. To reach our growth goals, we will be consistently hiring for Caregivers who live, or can commute to either Orange County or Los Angeles. As described above, we seek candidates who attain certain character qualities, along with either the skill set or willingness to train for the skill set necessary to offer our services.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
We would encourage interested candidates to first get to know our company to decide if we align with not only their career interests but also our company culture. If they find that we do, they have a few options to submit their interest. They can apply online through our Employment tab by clicking “Apply Online” and filling out the application- here they can also submit a resume. Another option is to call our office and discuss the opportunities with a member of our Recruiting department, using our Employment line: 949-916-1066. A third option is to walk into our office during our business hours (Monday-Friday between 8:00am - 5:00pm) and fill out an application.
