Has anyone ever worked for or are currently working for Maxim? If so, would you please give your opinion on it? What's your experience like?
They say their employees are their greatest asset, but how do they really treat you? Do they train? Is there support? High turnover?
They paid a competitive rate when I started there in 2004, by 2008 they cut our pay twice. Once for 5% and again a year later another 10% due to factors "completely beyond their control" "all agencies are doing this" blah blah blah
Turns out that no, other agencies were not doing that, and in fact I moved to another agency who gave me a $1 per hour raise
for taking care of the same patient.
So no, from what I experienced- I cannot say they treated us as their "greatest asset". I can't honestly complain about their training, because I only attended one thing- a vent class conducted by a guy who in reality was selling his disposable vent circuits. Orientation for private duty was done by another nurse, a caregiver or a family member.
My main problem with them was that though they say they value you, it doesn't translate into the bank account. The rest of the stuff I could have lived with to keep my hours, but not the pay cut thing.
