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

Pros

HQ is located in new building in a upscale area

Cons

Abnormal high employee turnover, large work loads, and everything is a crisis. Poor onboarding policies, cold and sterile environment. High sales pressures.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward excellent employees. Get down in the trenches and see what's really needed to build out the 5th largest independent living company in the US. Set reasonable expectations and provide the training and resources to those who work hard for you.

    I worked at Holiday Retirement full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You can't help but get attached to the residents----my wife and I miss them. That's about it.

    Cons

    Sleazy and deceptive business practices, some of which border on fraud---or are unethical at the least. Consistently high turnover rates, and you will likely be one of those 'turned over'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Note to potential Holiday employees and Holiday Mgmt-----Holiday is rated '2 stars' on this site, and that's with some of Holiday's home office staff being directed to document some glowing reviews of their company on this website. You would be better served to google 'under the veil' or 'dlcharles blog' to better understand the ramifications of working for this company.

    Pros

    Living with the seniors. Their knowledge, sense of humor outlook on life are the lessons they taught us. Being around them everyday is the part of this experience that we will always hold dear.

    Cons

    If it sounds to good to be true....If you want to be liable as a community manager but not allowed to do the job. Be verbally abused, disrespected, and used as a glorified tele-marketer. Not be able to provide what is advertised and offered at move in. Then this job is for YOU If you can sell a kind loving senior a product and still look them in the eye when they don't get it, you can do this job!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through with what you offer at move in. Do what you advertise you will do.
