    Pros

    Feels like everyone is family oriented, beautiful atmosphere..

    Cons

    As my title said, taking one for the team. This review is for the Alhambra location. The staff and I would like to give corporate a few tips that (crossing fingers) could hopefully change up a few things.

    Us caregivers an CNAs love our job but we don't feel like we are appreciated enough.
    If you think about it, we are the main faces to the residents, put them to bed, between rounds at night we change them, help them up to the toilet, back to bed, up for breakfast and watch them the entire day till night (you get the idea). Us caregivers would like more credit as we don't think it's fair out rates start at 9.50 per hour. We wish you would take into consideration the fact that we are for our residents and lets face it, it's not as easy as it seems. It's back breaking work. Our jobs consists of lifting residents to the bathroom and changing them in bed. Majority of them can't even move. Each of us got a position as a caregiver because the person who interviewed us saw and realized we care for our residents and we love what we do. But that doesn't mean to give us such low pay. . There is les back breaking work at McDonalds for about .50 cents more. If you go on salary.com average hourly for a caregiver 1 on 1 is around 11-14 dollars (imagine having a group of about 5 residents to keep an eye on and help with bathroom and grooming) ... It's not an easy job. And the 2 percent once a year isn't much.

    As we are the MAIN ones taking care of our residents, I feel we get lack of incentives. I love my job, some of us have been here for years and still have troubles paying the bills. Please note this is a concern that we don't get paid enough for what we do. And that this is a message from all of us caregivers and CNAs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the economy and gas prices going up, we as a team of caregivers and CNAs here at Alhambra think we deserve a better rate. 9.50 isn't cutting it for all the back breaking work we do. We also think there should be more incentives and bonuses opportunity. We just want corporate to know it takes a lot to be a caregiver, not anyone can deal with cleaning dirty messy diapers and have the patients with elderly like we do. It's not just flipping burgers. In and out pays there staff a higher rate than us. Why? That's not right. We do a job that not a lot of people can stand. Please pay more attention to us. And take better care of us. We are the main faces of Silverado.

    Pros

    Can't think of any right now

    Cons

    Very negative, paranoid office atmosphere. They smile and act nice to you, but crucify you behind closed doors. I've never been treated this way in my entire career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You might want to do some exit interviewIingto see what's really going on in the isolated little offices, what is that turnover really about?

    Disapproves of CEO
