food and beverage director

Director of Dining Services (Current Employee)

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

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

Consrun 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 Senior Managementpractice your cornerstones. Quality of life i never seen that with this company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
