    It is a job with long-term career possibilities, but not much in the short term.

    Pros

    The nation wide transferability The recognition of going the extra step for resident experience The willingness to be brought into the community

    Cons

    The lack of effort from co-workers The pay The inability to get overtime The limited schedule flexibility due to lack of other workers

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay means that your employees will be more willing to work and be less entitled. There is an apex that on one side is the people that make a low amount and are entitled to that and stop caring about their work. The "Their only paying me $XX.XX, why would I try?" mentality Verses the "This company is paying me $XX.XX, they take care of me, they deserve all that I can give.

    Great residents, co-workers and work environment. Job satisfaction knowing you've helped to improve the quality of one's life. Free meals

    Cons

    Long hours Poor pay to front line staff Need more supervisors between Department Directors and front line staff, especially evenings, nights and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Show your department heads the same kind of support you desire for them to give their staff. Double standards

    Pros

    Nice residents, flexible hours, great pace. Fun and exciting. I really enjoy Seniors and hearing about their lives.

    Cons

    Pay is not very good, they mean well but don't always execute. Upper management has been out of communities for far too long.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to your promises, don't take people for granted. Motivate employees don't scare them. Give them the tools they need to succeed.

    Pros

    Residents are fun and very nice people. Most are great people and have wonderful stories to share. The residents truly care about each other and the people who are there to take care of them.

    Cons

    Long, Long hours, Low low low pay. The pay does not reflect the level of ability or amount of responsibility expected of employees, Most could make better wages in the fast food industry. Top management do not listen or take suggestions. Sell, Sell, Sell, with no regard to residents needs. This company will eat you up and throw you away. NO work life balance!

    Advice to Management

    Listen, care, be present in the communities. Walk the walk with your staff and management teams. Be more careful of who you put in charge of your buildings.

    Pros

    Some of the residents are kind and funny.

    Cons

    The management is terrible. All they care about is putting money in their own pockets, not doing the right thing by employees or residents.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being greedy and treat your workers with respect.
