I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

There are no Pro's to Elkhart Valley View besides the patients that are needing care that they do not receive. I always try to find the positives but there are very few. There are some good employees.

Cons

The pay is low. they do not make you feel welcome, communication is poor, you get mandated to stay at least 3-4 days out of the week. The things that unprofessional management tells you never means much because they are also over worked and underpaid. No work and life balance at all, its all work. The pay is so low for all the work you do. Some staff care but never stay long

Advice to Management

Start following through with being a manager that starts with keeping staff, paying more and try having a positive attitude with new employees. The negative attitude starts with the interview and continues. Get your employees more money so your patients can get good care and you can change your bad attitudes and maybe keep staff. I never even heard about insurance or any benefits until 6 weeks after I applied online, two interviews later and several commutation problems. It really could be a nice facility but has failed for over 10 years. The best of luck to management and above all corporate

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay, schedule, ot availability, great co workers.

    Cons

    The company is for profit and it shows. It is all about the bottom line and upper management is spineless. This company (ltac sector) is dying and taking its staff with it.
