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

    Pros

    The Co-workers are committed to backing up their team members and achieving great results within a very fluid environment as we work through a massive growth phase.

    Cons

    The company runs very lean staffing so you have to wear multiple hats and put in long hours in order to keep up with the pace. As we have outsourced many roles to 3rd party agencies we have lost a lot of in house knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more perks and incentives to staff besides base salary. It's hard to retain great staff and keep them working through the long hours without any golden handcuffs.

    The most exhausting, exasperating experience of my 30 year work history.

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

    Pros

    Residents. Some of the finest folks you could ever spend time with. Even the tough cookies are worth the effort, time and emotional capital. If you love people and are willing to tolerate or ignore the corporate owners it may be worth a shot. If you truly can't find other employment Holiday is always hiring. You will get plenty of exercise.

    Cons

    Management at every level, especially regional directors on up. Depending on who your Regional Director is, your life will likely become chaotic and unpredictable. You must be willing to relocate to any community in your District; that means you could be living in any of several different states next week; The hours are long. If your co managers are sick, transferred, terminated or attending meetings you will work their shift--without extra pay of any kind. Don't expect an apology or thank you from your Regional either. It is all part of the job. When you finally burn out or get fired for missing a sales goal you find yourself and your partner jobless, homeless, likely far from where you started. Plan accordingly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Holiday Retirement was a proud, revered, respected company built by the Bill Colson family from 1971 until 2007. Sadly, it has been gutted. The Ritz Carlton has been turned into Motel 6.
