I have been working at Holiday Retirement full-time (more than an year)

Pros

A great setting for helping a community of people in various stages of retirement.
All living needs are taken care of. Apartment, utilities, internet, cable, telephone, food and entertainment, no commute to work. Very detailed ocumented systems for running operation.

Cons

Long days and long weeks. You are married to the community 24/7. Emergency calls at all times of the day or night. Sad to see people you take care of get worse in physical and mental health. Handle some pretty challenging situations and you are on your own to deal with it after hours or weekends.

    I worked at Holiday Retirement full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Excellent pay
    -Wonderful Home Office Support Staff
    -Excellent Housekeeping/Dining Room Staff
    -Perfect Holiday Structure (you get your birthday off or double pay if you work!)
    -Bonus Structure is insanely PERFECT

    I miss Holiday so very very much.

    Cons

    -Unprofessional management (at my property)
    They hid my leads from me and hindered me from doing my job which resulted in the worst possible outcome. I was not permitted to do the job in which I was hired.
    -Office Politics will most certainly be the death of you.
    Extremely stressful and overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your fellow managers to do their job without letting your need for power hinder them.

    If I got a call today to go back, I would in a heartbeat.
