    Pros

    -Nice, down-to-earth people.
    -Holiday bonuses
    -Easy to get overtime
    -Flexible hours
    -Students who work more than 1000(?) hours in a year can get a scholarship

    Cons

    -Management is cutthroat
    -Not enough pay for work done, constantly overworked
    -Easy to get hurt on the job
    -Can easily get tiring, even as a part-time worker
    -Nurses barely assist you
    This company may have 5 star facilities for their residents, but it sure does not feel like a 5-star facility when you work there.

    Advice to Management

    Could you please treat us like human beings? We aren't robots or slaves!

    Pros

    Great people, loved the atmosphere, management actually listened to your concerns. Lots of room for moving up. Struggling employees who had a hard time with the workload, were always given something to fit their abilities. Awesome benefits which I did not receive because I was part time.

    Cons

    Under-staffing can be an issue where I worked. Supply orders were an issue as well. These were easily addressed with management though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, however, using some forethought would be great. Some really talented people working here. Decreasing the length of time to get hired here would be awesome too.
