I worked at Country Meadows Retirement Communities full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – The residents are wonderful and some co-workers can be great friends
Cons – As a PCA ( Personal Care Associate) you are over worked and way under paid. Unless your management you won't get 80 hours, you have to work yourself to death to get close it. The title Personal Care Associate is a lie. Your a house keeper, a mantenace man, a nurse, a bus boy and everything else in between. The nursing staff does not tell you when a resident is infected with MRSA or anything else that may be contagious and the list goes on. Unless you like being worked like a slave I would not recommend a PCA position.
Advice to Senior Management – Take care of your residents and employees. Stop lying and sugar coating things to families that are looking for a good place to have their mother or father stay. Give the residents their money's worth!
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Country Meadows Retirement Communities
Pros – Health care benefits, the residents are sweet, and a beautiful campus to work in.
You have the option of working the day, middle and night shift. I worked both the day shift as well as the middle shift. I preferred the crew on the middle shift the best.
As a Med Tech I had 50 residents I had to check their vitals and administrate their meds. I enjoyed the residents and they become a part of your family, that was my favorite experience of this job.
Cons – Rarely get out on time and have to work every other weekend, which caused problems with the baby-sitter. The pay is low, I could barely cover my baby-sitting fees.

I have been working at Country Meadows Retirement Communities
Pros – Working with the residents. Dining services is fantastic.
Cons – Supporting unprofessional VP. Rash decisions made. Change in benefits structure. Management gets better benefits than direct care staff and direct care are who really need benefit help.
Advice to Senior Management – Please rethink your current senior management structure and start running your business like Governor.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
