    Pros

    My hard work and success was appreciated by those I worked with. Really enjoyed being on the IDT. I learned a great deal about the industry from ASC!be gen

    Cons

    Long hours and high stress. Loved the job but working 55 plus hours a week left me with very little time for my family.

    Advice to Management

    It was a pleasure!

    Pros

    Co-workers are very friendly. Location is convenient.

    Cons

    Constant staff turn-over. Overtime only available for nursing staff.

    Advice to Management

    Care about all departments instead of just nursing. It takes more than nurses and nurse aides to run a business.

    Pros

    Caring staff, very knowledgeable. ED goes the extra mile to make the staff feel appreciated. The DNS works the floor when staffing is short.

    Cons

    Sometimes staffing feels short. Some nurses do not have great follow through when it comes to assessments and documenting behaviors.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to ensure that staffing feels appreciated as you have been. The little things do mean a lot to floor staff.

    Pros

    The nursing staff are great :) Opportunities to transfer Overtime availability is no issue

    Cons

    We are constantly understaffed and its so bad that management denies vacation even if we give them MONTHS notice. We are still expected to do the work of 4 CNAs when only 2 are there. Most of the management staff are SO RUDE and so condesending that its making people run away. This company needs to stop buying buildings when they dont even have proper management in the ones they already have.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink who you hire for management...just because they have a nice resumé doesnt mean they're a nice person.

    Pros

    The company had some extremely dedicated CNAs that would go above and beyond to get the job done.

    Cons

    Staffing was a huge issue with this company. The building could not stay fully staffed due to employees frequently quitting. Management did not appreciate all of the hard work and overtime that employees put in. It was extremely difficult to stay motivated and enjoy your job without the support of management.

    Co workers are cool, younger management, could get more pay. Nice residents and family, smallest of the buildings.

    Cons

    Not enough workers, orientation is to fast, not giving people enought time to learn about the job

    Pros

    Excellent communication among the Clinical Care team, no drama, open and honest. I was impressed by the amount of Corporate required training that was required. Although I have 25+ years experience in my field, they took the time to make sure that I was aware of all the policies and procedures. Very nice place to work! Excellent benefit package!

    Cons

    No cons to be noted

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work to be able to recruit and retain employees, word of mouth from current employees is your greatest asset.

    Pros

    Free food, not very difficult. This job is not difficult, but is demanding, and rewarding. It's a very straight forward job.

    Cons

    Low paying job. I enjoyed it when I worked with my friends, but it was eventually hard to put up with the rest of the building staff looking down on you. I worked a lot of hours because of the unreliable staff calling in to work constantly. Though you almost have to work everyday to compensate for the low pay.

    Advice to Management

    I have no managerial experience, so I don't have any advice.
