Great employees to work with.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Kansas City, MO

ProsThe staff takes good care of the residents and being able to interact with the residents is a huge bonus! Negative behavior by employees is not tolerated which makes teamwork more prevalent--only people who work as a team stay employed.

ConsThe pay is comparatively low, working on holidays as an hourly employee, benefits aren't as good as most other companies, every employee is extremely busy and stretched thin.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy personal experience has been very good with Management. My only advice would be to reward employees with moral-boosters (pay increases, appreciation, nice employee facilities). I believe these things would help reduce turnover and truly keep good employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Company Gone Bad

    Regional (Former Employee)

    I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: Great place to work when it was the original Brookdale.
