Duluth >Alliance Care
I agree with the previous reviewers. The school is just okay. I was lucky that I had fairly good instructors,(ones that I know for a fact are no longer with the company.) however the very unprofessional front office staff would always interrupt to make lunch and to call students out of class. They are also very unfriendly and so is the director. Don't dare smile or say good morning to them because all you will get is a scowl in return. The nursing home they sent us to was awful. The CNA's that worked there were unprofessional, and they treated their patients like rag dolls. The cleanliness had much to be desired, and there were flies everywhere.
Since I wanted to in home care, I decided to try and get some experience by working for them. I should have learned my lesson with the school. They treat their employees even worse then the students. If you want to be yelled at and belittled, then all means work for them. The pay is horrible, and if you refuse a job because of personal reasons expect major attitude. Also if you are thinking about signing up with them as a client, I would think again and do more research. They treat their clients just as bad as their employees. Rude and uncaring.
Unprofessional. I have noticed that this company is very unprofessional especially the staff in the office. A family member worked for this company and I saw what they do to their CNA's. They take them of cases without telling them, and the staff finds out when another cna comes to replace them. The pay is awful, and they want them to do more than what they are hired for. I want not recommend this company to anyone to work or use for their family members. The school is okay, but working for them is awful. Whatever you do walk the other way from this company.
CNA School a little sketchy. I recently finished the Certified Nursing School training program at Alliance Care. I think if you are just looking to get the CNA certification and the Duluth location is most convenient to you, it is just ok. Keep in mind though that for 4 days you will have to do clinical training at a nursing home in Decatur that is nowhere near the school. Look up Grace Healthcare before you pay money to go to this school. Four days may not seem like much to you now, but trust me, it was tough to get through because it was so awful. The nursing home is a terrible place (dirty and depressing) and no place for the young students attending this school. It is in a really bad area and it is a very poor example of a nursing home. I literally threw away my scrubs and shoes when I finished. It was disgusting. Mostly what I learned there is that I never want to end up in a nursing home. It is a very poor quality home (one star) and did not seem safe. Alliance Care is just ok. The instructors were pretty good and professional. But the office staff is very unprofessional. They kept interrupting class to collect money from the students, flirting with the students, etc... And the manager or director is pretty much non existent until there is a problem and then she was just rude.
