    I have been working at Capital Senior Living part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Residents, DON and nursing staff are awesome

    Cons

    Very poor pay. Administrator runs all departments, she leaves little to none to management in other areas. Preferential treatment towards a particular resident. Aide will spend 1-3 hours with resident, while others get very little care. It is about the money. It has turned more into a nursing home than an assisted living, though we are not provided equipment that nursing homes use to properly lift residents off the floor, (this is supposed to be a 'no lift' facility). New residents brought in are at a level 3 or 4. (4 being the highest an assisted living can take). Moral is down in all departments because of how the new administrator runs things, lack of leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust that your nursing and dietary staff can run their own departments. Better pay if you continue to accept level 3 and 4 residents and proper equipment to properly care for these residents and staff.

    I worked at Capital Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    If you are an ED they pay well for the market

    Cons

    NO TRAINING, very poor systems. No support staff. No vacation for 1st year. HR rson never has an answer to any of your questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a training program and have more support staff.

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

    Pros

    A very satisfying industry. the interaction with the residents, helping families in the decision making

    Cons

    no training program. Working with people who cared about the bottoom line and really didnt care for the residents. In my case my boss was someone who looked at his position as just a job until his real career was able to support him, that doesnt translate well into the success of a business. They really dont give you the time to be successful or the ability to use your own creativity.

    Don't come here for the money or advancement, only come if you have a soft spot in your heart for retirees.

    I have been working at Capital Senior Living

    Pros

    Our residents become a part of your life. They aren't all wonderful, but the good ones make up for all the lousy ones.

    Cons

    Low pay for what we do, but it's that way across the board in other facilities like ours. No room for advancement. Low raises. We are definitely not here for the "Company", but for the residents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's a way to keep good employees. Research some methods. It may improve our facilities. Our residents *PAY US* to keep them happy. We are not doing our job very well when all I hear are complaints from them. Listen to your residents and act upon their concerns accordingly. I am sickened by how "Corporate" treats our residents and in turn, the facility management. This is obviously a Top-Down company.
