    Management act like slave owners

    Pal (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThe residents are nice,the Dementia training was effective.

    ConsMangement was very brutal,The nurses act like slave owners. If you went to management about a particular situation they sweeped it under the rug until.something happend resident wise then they would react. The employees felt unappreciated, we felt like no one appreciated what we did. Just because they have degrees means that they are better than the PAL's

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to be friendly but fair. This is not a plantation slavery is over !!!

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

    This Company Wastes Employee Talent and Time

    Pal (Current Employee)

    ProsHaving a job and healthcare benefits.

    ConsManagement is cutthroat, unapproachable, restrictive, oppressive, and unwilling to follow senior residence facility laws. Management-level people fail to understand that turning employees against one another is a breeding ground for mistrust. They also play favorites. When employees can't rely on one another for fair teamwork, the lack of trust doesn't allow for workers to perform productively and provide a happy facility for the residents.

    The hardest-working PALs are often given more work abusively beyond their capacity instead of being promoted and rewarded aside from attendance bonuses (which anybody can get). These hard-working PALs are people you want to keep, not people you want to be open to other jobs offers that pay more and demand less. When staff morale is low, so is customer satisfaction and this company has a history of having its marketing people (old bags on commission all across the company) lie right to the face of potential customers. By the time the paperwork is completed, families become disappointed to find out services are not offered, no fresh squeezed juice (I think it's Tampico), and the families will try to ask employees for the services which the management turns a blind eye to. This is like a plantation with a hierarchy that keeps people on welfare without letting them succeed. As a result, many of your co-workers will have no morals, no trust for you, and lastly nobody is happy working here. Nobody!

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop making employees fear retaliation if they report illegal activity. Reduce the gap between the staff-to-resident ratio of those who are not management-level.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Housekeeper

    Housekeeper (Former Employee) Oak Park, IL

    ProsWorking with the elderly
    Learning the stages of dementia
    Meeting new people

    ConsNew Management didn't get a chance to see what I am capable of doing .

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure the nurses, CNA workers and etcetera are doing there job correctly. So many effects of not taking care of the elderly can cause loss in pay and lawsuits.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Flexible with scheduling and friendly coworkers but little to no growth opportunities.

    The Good The Bad and the Ugly of West University

    Driver (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGood - The residents are beautiful. After working there about a year and a half the residents became more like friends. I also respected the well earned quarterly bonuses.

    ConsBad - Most of the managers felt the staff's pain when it came to keeping the facility full. They were under deep pressure to cut cut cut and they did just that or else. Managers were hard on staff to save there own bonuses.

    Ugly - There was also a great divide between management and staff. Most managers did not mingle with staff members. It was almost like working on a southern plantation. I am sure management did not see it that way but staff members felt it every day. There were some excellent staff members there. But there was no room for them to grow if you did not have a degree. There was a definite economic glass ceiling. Managers ate in the public bistro area and staff members ate in a little cramped hall way in the back. This fact was embarrassing for 2013.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease create some management training programs for staff members. If you already have some please share that with staff members. At West University the staff is a goldmine of resident care talent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I loved it

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Nashville, TN

    ProsI loved working with the elderly people. I definitely learned patience at that job, and gained an experience that I would recommend to others.

    ConsOne of the downsides of working at Belmont Village was the indefiniteness of what was required of my position. We had tasks, but sometimes one worker would have to take on a lot of another workers tasks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more clear about what each position requires while on the job. There are job descriptions given, but when you get down to the actual day on the job it can sometimes be unclear without some guidance from management

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Don't work for corporate office

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGood reputation within senior housing industry. Working at communities is a good place to be. They are building new communities and trying to grow.

    ConsIf possible, avoid working at the corporate office. Not the same room for growth as in communities. Not a very supportive environment either.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to you people and do not try to bully people into submission. There are good people there, but you have taken the life out of them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It was a learning experience, where I got more from the residents than the staff!

    Activities Assistant (Former Employee)

    ProsThe residents are amazing to work with, and always thankful. It is extremely rewarding because you are helping people who cannot otherwise help themselves.

    ConsSupervision is not always available, you're on your own the majority of the time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want someone with a higher degree, compensate them appropriately.
