The flexibility we offer is one of our biggest differentiating factors between other agencies. Our employees get to choose their own schedules. We even encourage you to continue your education while providing shifts that work best for you.
“BrightStar gives me the flexibility I need with raising a family. It allows me time off to go on field trips and helps me to be an involved parent. BrightStar makes you want to be a part of their team with incentives and small celebrations! Everyone in the office is friendly! The Nurses are hands on team players!” – Nancy
“I have been at BrightStar health care in Naperville will be 1 year in August. I chose to work for them because of the flexibility with the schedule. I had a change in my career and decided to go back to school to become a nurse and BrightStar is a perfect fit with my schedule. All my clients have been extremely special to me and there is a definite sense of team work. The staff are kind and always there willing to help with whatever they can do to make our jobs easier. They even have a skills lab if you need a refresher. Someone is always willing to meet with you and assist you there if need be. All my time with BrightStar so far has been nothing but positive. It is a very good experience.” – Julie

“I was first introduced to BrightStar as a part of a capstone course for my nursing program. I learned so much and had such good experiences with my RN mentor that I decided to come back and work for them. From the DON, case managers, and schedulers, to the fellow employees working out in the field, I have found a nurturing environment that helps me continue to grow as a new grad nurse. With BrightStar I have flexibility, skills practice, and a wide range of nursing experiences that has helped me make the transition from student to working nurse.” – Fran
“…I worked with many different types of clients which helped improve my knowledge in care for the clients and what I was learning at school. The staff is excellent and always there willing to help with whatever they could to make your job easier. They have a skills lab in the office if you’re not sure on how something is done, they will retrain you if needed.” - Pat

“One thing for sure I have worked at some facilities and the care we given to the clients is far better than some of the workers that actually work at those facilities, that says a lot about who BrightStar hires.” -Patricia
“I worked with many agencies before working at BrightStar and the difference is clear. BrightStar cares and is ready to listen to me whenever I call. Requesting more hours, calling off work, etc… there is always someone to help me with my needs as much as they can. Their In-Service and quarterly continuing education has been a huge help. It has helped me to build more confidence in providing excellent services to my clients and my work. Above All they appreciate when I go above and beyond by recognizing my hard work with gift cards. Lovely, good and helpful team to work with. I recommend BrightStar to all.” – Araba
