    I worked at Capital Senior Living full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    None that i saw. its a growing company who really does not know what to do, where to go and how....

    Cons

    Pay for all community things out of your pocket
    No management structure
    No support
    HR is horrible
    Pay is horrible compare to industry standards so they are hiring people who are not fit to do the job
    Residents are neglected in most communities as the company is pushing for Dollars and Numbers....!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get out of your offices and start to see what goes on in the communities. its horrible. most of your regional are hiding facts and figures....!

    I have been working at Capital Senior Living

    Pros

    There's really no pros to working for this company, besides being thankful you have a job.

    Cons

    It's really sad when nursing staff has no gloves over a weekend and nobody from management can bring any. Then, once staff buys something out of pocket they have to wait weeks for petty cash. The Mgr bullies staff, and gets away with it. There's a lot of gossiping from management also. The residents never have events or anything remotely entertaining because there's never money in the budget. The weekends, there's never anything to do for the residents who are not having visitors or are out. And Corp does absolutely nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come out your office and do your job. The people you delegate lack management and leadership skills needed to perform the simplest tasks at the facility I worked at. Listen to the staff sometimes.

    Pros

    The residents. They are the reason I'm still working there, besides some of the co-workers I enjoy working with. They make staying a lot easier than going.

    Cons

    Aides only make $9/hr, upper management stinks. Regional manager even more so. All raises go for her approval, and she always denies it. The place is more like a nursing home than assisted living. We have total care and hospice. Currently looking for other employment, because I can barely make it on this pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the overall pay scale for aides, and you won't see such a huge turnover. Have pay that is competitive. Offer incentives regularly. Respect your employees! It makes a world of difference. I think that the Regional Manager should be fired, because she especially is out of touch with the employees and their concerns.

    Micro-managers on ego trips! It's all about reports, and money! No concern for the residence. No vacation or sick time

    Poor management on ego trips, administrators who are psyco, no vacation or sick pay for a full year!.. Look for a job somewhere else!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your Egos have to be stroked too much.. You must be very insecure to have to be so boss like and micro.

    I worked at Capital Senior Living part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job security because people quit after being trained.

    Cons

    Where to start. Managment treats the staff like dogs. Constantly "it's not my problem" attitude. The most disorganized, Uncaring company I have ever worked for. Low low pay, raises 2,5 percent. No room for advancement, still have VHS for the residents, not even DVD. All about the budget, can't have more paper towels or soap because of th budget, um we are nursing staff! Management does not give a crap about residents either. Would never suggest to anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Starry caring., your nursing staff holds you together, budget isn't everything, the reason you have the job is because of the residents. If you help staff, they will respect and care more.

    I worked at Capital Senior Living

    Pros

    Decent Health Insurance
    average salary
    401K after 1 year

    Cons

    No advancement potential for women, this is a total "Boys Club" All the men at the top are friends and women are never promoted. Marketing Directors work twice as many hours in a week as the Executive Director, but they are the first to be blammed and "fired" once their census drops. It's very sad to have seen many women in the company leave or be fired due to the laziness and incompetence of the Executive Director and VP. Total boys club!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Horrible leadership in the midwest properties
