    Bumping this back up. I too am interested in feedback about this company. I've got a recruiter from their company that I'm talking with. Thanks!

    Bayada is the first homecare agency I've worked with. I've been working with them for about 5 months now. They are very professional in all ways. My training was excellent. They let me have a lot of time precepting on cases before I went out on my own. The pay is good. The nurses I meet are all long-term employees from 5yrs to 20yrs. I would give them a try.

    Hi all I am looking into working for Bayada Nurses - they have a strong home health presence in my area. Does anyone have any experience with this company? I would like to hear the good and the bad.

    Thanks :spin:

    Never heard of them, and I am in the BR mtn. area myself.

    Perhaps some one else knows ? Sorry I can't be of help.

    Bayada is a large international nursing company - I knew of them by way of traveling nurses but I've not worked for them.

    They are very BIG in my area as headquarters just over the river from Philadelphia. Well respected, Have both private duty and skilled intermittent care.

    Ann and Mark Baiada owners gave the 2007 commencement address at my alma matter Neumann College and received honorary degrees.

    They do seem to be in a league of their own in the Pittsburgh region. They do a lot of private duty but very little in the way of visit care which is totally my bag. I just can't see myself spending all day with one patient day after day. I'm waiting for them to ratchet their skilled visit business up which I'm told by the recruiter is on a temporary hold. They seem professional and compassionate with a capital "C".

    Last year I recall a tv ad running during the Christmas holidays showing a nurse driving through a terrible storm at night to attend to her patient. It impressed me and made me cringe at the same time.

    [font=book antiqua]i must put in my 2 cents here. bayada is the only employer i have had that is generous with the "thank-you's" and pats-on-the-back. i have only been with them since october, and i still haven't gotten used to being treated that way. the girls in the office in asheville, nc which i work out of are truly wonderful, caring people. after years of being in a rewarding yet thankless career (don't get me wrong, being a nurse is who i am not a profession) it is strange to be lavished with praise. they make you feel valued as a person. my training was also top-notch, and they made sure my comfort level was an a+ before they let me loose. if bayada is in your area, i recommend them highly.
