I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Beautiful facility to work at

Cons

Requiring background checks of employees who have been there. 10, 15 years or more ... Level 2 which requires fingerprinting. Unfortunately, this insult will lead to a lot of retirement of these employees in the next few months. I have been told by a few of these valued employees they are HIGHLY insulted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Practice the core values you preach ... Don't make empty statements.

    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only good thing about the community that I work at is the residence. My residence makes my day.

    Cons

    From Housekeeping to upper manage there is no communication. In the departamnt that I work in, new residents can come in and you can ask the nurse what the residenct name and you get asked "What resident". or I didn't know we had a resident in such and such room. They are tring to make this community skilled and do it so the state don't know. We have have people that use lifts and can't do anything for them selfs. We have people in varies stages of alzhiemers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get some back bone with these family members. If they are not suited for indenpendent living then tell them.. Stop letting the reidents tell you what to do. Do a better job whith a mix of religions. Stop bring people in that don't speak english.
