Run from this company. My last 4 checks have either bounced or have come late. I'm now on 5 days and still have not recieved my check from the 5th. The 2 checks before that bounced. The one before that they had to over night me. So many payday laws are being broken with this company. And all I recieve is I am sorry this is happening. The CEO is a multi-million dollar business owner! She's making her bank while I'm arguing to recieve my checks. DO NOT become employeed with this company.

Altruist looks great on paper but management is horrible and employees like trash. They don't care about their patients, only a check from the insurance companies. They are very unprofessional and the culture is brutal. They have a very "HIGH TURN OVER RATE" one that I have Never seen in the history of my employment. Please "RUN FOR THE HILLS" or you will regret it. I had No choice to walk away with my so this is Not a disgruntled employee. Don't believe all the positive reviews which were written by employees compelled to do so. RUN FOR THE HILLS or you will be saying I should have believed that review. Overall, the culture is very toxic, negative, and very, hostile.
This owner does not pay Nurses for hours worked. This company really should Not be in business. The state of Texas needs to be called on this company. They need to be shut down.
