Hi, I recently joined Intermin as well partime. One of my co-workers works with Interim, she referred me so I went in for the interview. It was more like a meet n greet and having your questions answered about home health. When I walked out, they made me fill a time card. I asked em for what? They said "SO YOU CAN GET PAID FOR TODAY?" I was surprised.... WOW, I earned already?
Most of the time spent was on learning the paperwork. I think I oriented about 6 hours on paperwork and 2 visits to open cases, and I was on my own. Its pretty easy to pick up as long as you learn the paperwork. We already have the skills, just need to learn organizational skills with paperwork and schedule visit times.
As for your questions:
1-What does orientation consist of?
Paper work, a few visits (make sure you go to OPEN a case). Don't go on a follow-up visit because all you do is the skill required, vitals and charting. If there r any changes, u call the doc. When you open a case, thats when you do 80% of the paperwork.
How long is orientation?
It depends how fast of a learner you are, but they'll always be auditing your work very carefully in the beginning.
2-Is the pay hourly or per visit?
Pay per visit. You get extra to open a case.
Claim your mileage, gas, and vehicle expenses in taxes... more in return vs re-imb from Interim.
