    Nursing Home not an Assisted Living.

    Care Taker (Current Employee)

    ProsResidents, DON and nursing staff are awesome

    ConsVery 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 Senior ManagementTrust 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a good place to work

    ConsNO 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 Senior ManagementDevelop a training program and have more support staff.

    Great experience working with seniors

    Sales & Marketing Director (Former Employee)

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

    Consno 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.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet more involved in your communities

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

    Courtesy Guard (Current Employee)

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

    ConsLow 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 Senior ManagementThere'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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
