    Management is unprofessional and with priorities not based around patient care, but based around making $$

    I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living part-time

    Pros

    The licensed nurses and CNAs are amazing, a great group of people that care about their patients. Work environment is clean and the facility is beautiful.

    Cons

    Management FORBIDS any kind of overtime, you get written up even if you do 30 minutes overtime no matter the situation. Staff turnover is really high, very difficult to call out sick, staff have been told they cannot call out sick because there is no one to cover. Very toxic work environment from the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get priorities straight, as a licensed nurse you can also help on the floor if need be, allot overtime if you want to provide optimum care, get adequate staff so that if someone calls off it isnt complete chaos.

    I worked at Emeritus Senior Living full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Any non-seasonal service job in south Florida is not to be overlooked. I wouldn't have had to worry about losing hours during the low season.

    The company made an effort to provide events for the residents (happy hour, etc) which resulted in more hours for waitstaff.

    Cons

    High turnover for employees and management contributed to a lack of supervision in my department (dining room services.) The employees who stuck around made their own schedules, showing up late or not at all, leaving the rest of us to work short every shift. Residents grew frustrated as the servers spread themselves thin trying to accommodate everyone. Management did nothing in the way of disciplinary action, so this behavior was permitted and therefore promoted.

    Our establishment was ill-equipped to accommodate gluten-free diets, but decided to take on a resident who needed this diet anyway. Her children were then tasked to bring in bread and pasta so that she was able to eat. Unacceptable for a company that is supposed to be caring for her.

    Server pay was an insult. I found out after training new hires for over a month that they started and kept a higher rate of pay than I had. Upon bringing this to my supervisor's attention and requesting a raise, I was brushed off. If you were lucky enough to be approved for a raise upon a good performance review, you wouldn't receive more than 10 cents. In addition, the director responsible for our branch's payroll was caught skimming hours off of workers' paychecks. This person is still employed by the company.

    What events the company planned for its residents were dull and ultimately bored them. A building full of bored and frustrated residents lowered the morale of employees and led to a vicious cycle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not leave the training of new hires solely to other waitstaff. This results in conflicting information and the new hire is more likely to learn lazy shortcuts than what is actually supposed to be done.

    If workers are showing problematic behavior, actually discipline them instead of leaving everyone else to pick up their slack.

    Good workers should be recognized for their hard work. Period.
