A great learning opportunity.

Managers' Assistant (Current Employee)
Orem, UT

ProsWorking with the residents is the best part of the job. When you treat them with respect and tend to their needs quickly, they really do seem like family.

ConsI think the biggest "con" when working with Holiday Retirement, at least in the center I work at, is the difficulty in working with two sets of managers. Often times they do not communicate so you either have to tell both sets the same thing, or one doesn't communicate to the other that they have asked you to do a huge project and you get yelled at for being busy all day.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave more defined rolls as to what each set of managers do. Have a good communication system so that nothing gets left on post-its that fall on the floor.
