Two-faced, non-training, sexual discriminatory to male workers, and no activities for residents

Registered Nurse (Former Employee)
Newton, MA

I worked at Five Star full-time for more than a year

ProsResidents were the only thing good.

ConsPoorly staffed, workers always unhappy with pay, no activities for residents, food subpar, residents never given what they were "promised" when their asses were kissed and butt scratched to get the many thousands of dollars for admittance. Few select families absolutely unreal in demands for Granny. Men make good administrators but that's all. Hey, why pay a man when we can pay a woman 10,000 less and be able to intimidate them easily! Left there after HR idiot defimated my character and accepted the lies of lower staffed employees. Had to get an act of congress to fire a C N A that stole things, but when they got a chance to cut a hard workers pay, in order to then be able to hire someone for thousands less, they jumped on it.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet over yourselves, start using some of those extremely large Bonuses you get, to help your staff out. You know, the ones that make those big bonus checks possible! and, try doing a little real work for a change. Maybe you'll actually remember how it was to have a real life and you might even find you feel good about what you're doing, and not just ripping the old folks off.

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