I almost quit everyday for the first month. Overwhelming and too much to take on.

    Pros

    Assisting and spending time with the residents was the highlight of my day. Some coworkers were very nice to work with.

    Cons

    Management was the worse I have ever seen, from the facility Director up to the Regional people. They promote the components of their mission statement verbally but they DO NOT act on it at all themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Visit your Communities on a regular basis. DON'T call ahead, DROP IN. Don't take the E.D. word for the state of the Community. I was paid 3k LESS than low norm for this company and expected to work 60-80 hrs wkly. This employment experience was a living horror story.

    Pros

    residents, my staff who worked their ass off while waiting sometimes up to 2 months for new hires to begin.

    Cons

    run run dont walk. I got 2 promotions things were great till i got to last promotion. Averaging 100 hrs a week no support, when i tried to CA a employee Corporate declined it or by the time they approved it a week went by that time its like punishing a dog for something they did a while ago. Residents complaining food was horrible. I agree YOU TRY FEEDING Someone for $ 6.00 a day. I did it but cant get the food that residents want, a same when they pay average rent of 5000. I finally gave notice after they demanded me to work from 530am-7pm 7 days a week until they could get me a pro tem to help me.

    Advice to Management

    practice your cornerstones. Quality of life i never seen that with this company.
