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

Pros

Love the reward when dealing with residents, families and employees. Everyone focused on making lives of Seniors better! A great community that is focused on the Resident. The Company does a great job maintaining the buildings. Teamwork is critical, as long as each works together to the common goal. Sales are fun. Functions are divided equally as long as each other carries their weight. It is for someone who has a drive to succeed

Cons

A difficult job, however still fun. Serving anyone who is living is longer than a 9-5 job. The Company does a great job in setting proper staffing in the Community. People who are lazy will not be successful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay the course. Encourage those that express how much they enjoy their job to report on the blog. The Company is getting a bad name because of some bad hires. There are many people like myself who enjoy working here, however we aren't speaking to the good things. As the saying goes, those that don't like something are first to tell others........most cases they are the problem for not liking it. I know there are many people in my Region that really enjoy the work they do. Bad people have bad experiences, however scaring good people away! Nothing is perfect, however you are doing the right thing by being more selective in hiring. Many who aren't successful shouldn't have been selected to be hired to begin with.

    Pros

    If you love to serve seniors and bringing a smile to their faces and giving them someone to speak with-than this is maybe the job for you!

    Cons

    If the pros are true than this is not the best fit for you because this behavior is not welcome nor appreciated!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please please train the community managers on Team work and the value of honesty and integrity in all dealings. If only the community managers would follow the directive that they are equal with the co managers it would so much better for the residents!

    I worked at Holiday Retirement full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are interested in the care of seniors this is a good fit for you.This is also a good start for people who are seeking their first job.

    Cons

    Working at this facility means sacrificing your break times to meet timelines.At 9:45am daily when you should be working on your projects there is a mandatory take 10 .This is where you are given instructions about the rules governing the facility which ranges from the company vehicle maintenance to selling the facility to prospective clients.Be prepared to be driven like a slave to meet timelines and to avoid been paid overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management talks down to the employees and push company policies without adjusting them to fit the facility.This facility need to provide staff facilities like bathrooms and a lunch room.Training opportunity should be provided from within for upward mobility in the company.
