    I worked at the Atrium facility in Carmichael. In the beginning it was great then it turned awful.

    Pros

    Free lunch and sampling the food.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities to move up, poor management, if you are new they don't always work around your schedule, if you don't learn fast the other employees aren't friendly, minimum wage without tips, kind of all for yourself rather than a team.

    Pros

    Senior Housing working with the residents and familes is wonderful.

    Cons

    Corporate office is very disconnected and does not react to problems in a timely fashion. There is no team spirit and no direction. No Planning, no training, no motivation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to basics - PEOPLE. Build strong teams, and empower them to do their job. Motivate your team and reward them.

    I worked at Capital Senior Living part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It was a good opportunity as an entry level position. I gained a lot of experience. It was a good job for a college student.

    Cons

    The company was unorganized and unprofessional. People would always do no call no shows and still somehow they would still have their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little more demanding in tasks

    Nursing Home not an Assisted Living.

    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 have been working at Capital Senior Living full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for Capital Senior Living since 2007 and have been promoted to E.D-I am also a woman. I feel that the Corporate Headquarters has an exceptional staff and great support for those of us out here. I recently visited Dallas for Executive Director Training and found everyone to not only be professional but helpful and very interested in how they can help us do our jobs. I feel that you get out of a job what you put into it. I have the greatest staff and an awesome Regional Director who offers up time tested support to all issues I have.

    Cons

    I have worked for other health care facilities and this company takes care of their employees. Enough said.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. I get lots of support from all corporate staff every time that I ask for it.

    Pros

    Great environment to work. Capital Senior Living cares about their staff from Top to bottom. Their Corporate staff are very helpful and very patient. The orientation program for the new ED's is 5 star all the way. The President and all the other Corporate staff were wonderful to us. They truly make you feel like you are a part of their family. The President came down from Dallas to our community and was great not only to the staff but the residents as well. They truly do have a compassion for what they do. I'm proud to be a part of their team.

    Cons

    I wish they would give the ED's more leeway on disciplining staff, and terminating staff that need to be gone.. Too much red tape. (Better raises).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job! Keep doing what your doing.

    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.

    Pros

    The residents. They are the reason I'm still working there, besides some of the co-workers I enjoy working with. They make staying a lot easier than going.

    Cons

    Aides only make $9/hr, upper management stinks. Regional manager even more so. All raises go for her approval, and she always denies it. The place is more like a nursing home than assisted living. We have total care and hospice. Currently looking for other employment, because I can barely make it on this pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the overall pay scale for aides, and you won't see such a huge turnover. Have pay that is competitive. Offer incentives regularly. Respect your employees! It makes a world of difference. I think that the Regional Manager should be fired, because she especially is out of touch with the employees and their concerns.

    Micro-managers on ego trips! It's all about reports, and money! No concern for the residence. No vacation or sick time

    Cons

    Poor management on ego trips, administrators who are psyco, no vacation or sick pay for a full year!.. Look for a job somewhere else!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your Egos have to be stroked too much.. You must be very insecure to have to be so boss like and micro.
