    Former Employee - F & B Server in Redding, CT

    I worked at Meadow Ridge part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    When I worked there, they offered meals and it was the best starting wage rate in the area. Christmas bonuses. As a teenager working a part time job, the hours are flexible.
    You learn some things about fine dining and humility from being a server.

    Cons

    you weren't allowed to get tips
    Limited training time
    Raises were possible, but highly subjective and you need to fight for every cent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dedicate more time to training and give incentives for great service.

    I worked at Meadow Ridge full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The residents are wonderful, need care and appreciate the care given. The EMT's who work there and assist the nurses during emergencies are excellent.

    Cons

    They do not treat nurses well. They do not accept appropriate residents. All they are concerned about is money. They do not hire nurses who have appropriate experience. They hire nurses with no experience and expect them to be responsible for 350 residents and do not have the knowledge of what to do in emergencies. They have LPN's doing assessments with no registered nurse supervision which is a clear violation of their license and a violation of the DPH who oversees the facility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of administration and start over. The owner needs to get a handle on what is going on.

    Pros

    Daily interaction with charming community of vibrant, engaged, and lively seniors ready to embrace their retirement years.
    Beautiful facility.

    Cons

    Management lacks an overall plan and reacts to situations without thinking through long- (and short-) term consequences. Some management very condescending toward residents behind their backs. HIPAA is not conscientiously enforced. HR is non-existant. No possibility of overtime - strictly enforced. Management routinely dismisses resident's concerns and comments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff - they are intelligent and interact with residents every day and are one of the best ways to gauge resident satisfaction. Listen to your residents and treat them with respect.
