Not a career... a calling... as such, 110% is the norm to be given!

I have been working at Holiday Retirement full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Residents are a true pleasure!... Associates although trying at times, :) really give all to their jobs, and truly try... Some Job Perks...

Cons

Upline needs to understand the entire dynamic of running a community. Regardless of being a "Sales Champion" a manager cannot ignore the residents, operations, safety issues, etc. WE LITERALLY GIVE EVERYTHING WE ARE, as community managers, DO YOU??

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No advice... just a wish that they experience the "community life" from the trenches, "NOT" 60,000 feet.

    Holiday was the worst company that either of us ever worked for, by far.

    I worked at Holiday Retirement full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None. There are other companies out there that really do believe in their mission statements.

    Cons

    Residents who can't get their maintenance concerns taken care of for months at a time due to "spending Freezes". Exterior lighting left without being repaired mainly due to the cost of high pressure sodium light bulbs. One resident had a broken window for 6 months due to refusal to spend the money on a replacement. Managers not allowed to turn units completely until they were leased, due to spending restrictions, but they still had their feet held to the fire over occupancy issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please sell the company back to the Colsons.

    I worked at Holiday Retirement full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The residents have a place to live rather than being homeless on the streets.

    Cons

    Management and Regional Directors are horrible. Talk about treating staff like dirt. Managers are recruited with NO experience and it definitely shows. Sales,Sales,Sales. Not seniors,seniors seniors. This company is really just about real estate not about senior living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Especially the long term ones. Regionals are a joke, they hire these managers and blame everything that happens from hiring un experienced managers on the lower level employees, the ones that actually work and not sit on their tails in the office and play boss.
