    I have been working at Country Meadows Retirement Communities part-time

    Pros

    This place is great! I love the residents and working with my co-workers -- the people really care!

    Cons

    You have to be clear and communicate in a direct manner with your co-workers, but that's pretty much anywhere in life. Gossip happens, but you just need to ignore it.

    I have been working at Country Meadows Retirement Communities full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Relationship with resident, holiday pay, benefits, meal plan, fair pay, lots of hours to pick up, have off every other weekend. Earn PTO from date of hire

    Cons

    Management is nit-picky, med associates act like the supervise PCAs, everyone is always too busy to get their work done from previous shift even though you come in and they are just sitting around, unfair management towards employees,

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here. Run the other way

    Cons

    Never have enough staff which makes for an unsafe environment. They keep skilled residents who should be in a skilled facility not here. One nurses aid on a unit(3-11) that needs three or four.

    Advice to Management

    You would keep your staff if they were treated better and given a good orientation. the orientation was pathetic

    I worked at Country Meadows Retirement Communities (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was a Country Meadows for many years, you will find a lot of good co-workers at the Home Office. Everyone is very friendly and it is a relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Room to advance when you get to the Home Office is very limiting.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee complains...the manager isn't always right.

    Pros

    Satisfaction of knowing you made a difference in someones day.

    Cons

    Low pay,understaffed or staffed with people who do not care about the quantity and quality of work they do.Very high turnover rate! Management constantly ignoring ''issues'' that need attention. Mixing dementia patients with those who just need assistance and not increasing pay for those who have to pit up with this trend.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying attention to what is going on instead of ''covering your own but.''And you wonder why there is such a high turnover ratio!

    Pros

    Fantastic job for a high school or college student looking for short shifts and not too many hours. Great for those looking to work in healthcare. Decent wage.

    Cons

    Overall the pay scale with the low hours can make it difficult to make a lot of money.
