    Pros

    No shortage in needed work as its open 7 days a week. Easy to speak with managers.

    Cons

    High turnover rates in some departments. My location may have been an anomaly, but in the 2 years I worked there, there were 4 executive Directors.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest a tighter control on the quality of workers. It seemed to me they were hiring people they knew would quit or be fired quickly so as to avoid pay raises.

    Pros

    Interacting with geriatric patients, learning how to handle patients with little to no mobility, utilizing documentation skills, learning from the residents, time and a half when working holidays, Hands On, Responsibility.

    Cons

    Facility IS HOT, 2 ND Floor Holmgreen is out dated and is in desperate need of a new AC Unit, Lack of Staff, Not enough of a background check or personality test, Under Staffed over night OR OVER Staffed, No respect towards those with seniority, No assistance with patients considered "dead weight"

    Advice to Management

    DO thorough Personality Tests, Don't lie about what the job entails it's great experience for someone beginning in the medical field, DO prepare Care Assosciates with proper training techniques when it comes to: feces, blood or the inevitable deceased patient. More sample documents on how they are to be filled and laminated protocols. PLEASE FOCUS ON FIXING 2nd floor. DO not openly flirt with employees this does not grant very much respect.
