    I have been working at Erickson Living part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked here for 5 years now and i have grown as a person. Students were able to receive scholarships for college and holiday bonuses (funded by the residents, NOT the company itself). It was convenient because I was able to request off when I need to, and they also allowed students in college to come back to work during winter/summer break.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible. I have been working here for 5 years now and I am only making 45 cents more from when I started. After the state increased minimum wage, they did not add on raises. Therefore, people who have been working here for only 3 months are making more than me, which is pathetic. Some of the staff "higher up" are very unprofessional. New workers are not trained very well.

    I have been working at Erickson Living full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have been working for Erickson Living over 2 years and during that time the company has focused a lot of time, money and effort on finding and developing excellent leadership talent to grow along with the company. We are positioned to grow the number of communities we manage and own in the next five years and to that end we have done national searches for highly motivated individuals to join our team.

    Cons

    Our corp offices are a bit outdated, but they have recently done some improvements, which have made it much nicer.

    Pros

    The residents are very kind, and the benefits are good. The teams have an honest desire to help provide care, inspire of unstable leadership

    Cons

    Executive leadership will drive managers and directors away with great frequency. In less than a year so many great leaders and team members have been driven out by poor administration support, and empowerment. It seems only the bad performers remain.

    I worked at Erickson Living part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Loved my co-workers and some of my managers. The rest I cannot say anything positive about them

    Cons

    My hours, my hours, my hours. This is why I left because I wouldn't have. They cut my hours and I tried to get some more but the scheduler/manager didn't really feel like it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the hardworking employees who want to work with Erickson Living for a longer time unless of course y'all decide to cut hours and makes things unstable for us.

    I have been working at Erickson Living part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Generous company that offered great scholarship opportunities and bonuses. Better than minimal wage as wait staff starts with a salary about a dollar above minimum wage (because there aren't any tips)... I've really learned a lot from my time at Erickson and feel like it has prepared me well for future jobs.

    Cons

    Raises are only in increments of about 35 cents no matter how well the employee does. The hours are kind of a pain because the restaurant is only open from 4-6 (the cafe is open all day though) so if you want lots of hours this probably shouldn't be your first choice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Participate more with lower staff and try to make the company better. Only one of the four managers I have had actively participated in the company and gave the impression that he truly cared, the other three were just there and did not have much of an impact in my opinion.
