    I worked at Senior Village Management part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Being able to spend time with the residents,

    Cons

    This place is terrible! Its called an assisted living facility but its more like a nursing home or hospice. There are no nurses at this facility when there should be at least 10-12. This place is down right horrible! I would never send anyone here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    care about the residents instead of money! pay your employees!

    I worked at Senior Village Management full-time

    Pros

    Compensation was okay, somewhat misleading, they will tell you that you will earn more than you do

    Cons

    They only care about profit, they don't care about the residents or employees, high turnover rate because they are not honest to their employees, they do not encourage or motivate employees, a very negative environment, arguing among staff, lots of lies from management, management is untrained and will blame lower employees for things that are their fault.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect, give them more training and encourage them to stay and to work together as a team, you have high turnover because you are not treating your employees well, you make them feel like they are disposable. Give employees opportunities for advancement and give better benefits

    Serious but not about the clients.

    I worked at Senior Village Management

    Pros

    Great team of coworkers to work with. Possibly chance for advancement. The corrects are very sweet and they look forward to having you come.

    Cons

    They don't play close enough attention to the clients. Clients have fallen or become ill and unless they have family they just sweep it under the rug.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees

    I have been working at Senior Village Management full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small company with big dreams. They don't really know what they are doing so someone ambitious enough might actually have influence on how the company performs.
    Benefits are nice - if you can take advantage of them.
    Room to grow if you know how to play the game - shouldn't be a game.
    Decent work-life balance for full-time employees - so long as they're not salary.
    "Home Office" wants to measure their success so they are coming up with standards to hold people accountable to - finally some structure.
    There have been many times that I thought this company would fold or a property would fail - they haven't and somehow they made it to 2014!

    Cons

    "Home Office" is out of touch with what the properties deal with on a daily basis.
    Focusing on expansion while falling short at existing properties.
    Not enough support staff in place to keep the hard workers happy.
    It is difficult to use PTO with all the problems that need attention, no Pay-Out option is available and they have a very limited cap on how many PTO hours are allowed to carry over year to year.
    "Home Office" invests in programs that no one is using while they could be upgrading other areas of operation.
    Low-level workers have to suffer through management changes at a ridiculous rate and usually take the brunt of the work load.
    We have to embrace the word "ridiculous" as our "ridiculous service" pillar, it's such a poor word choice that it's ridiculous someone didn't think of changing it before embedding it into the company's mantra.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire enough staff to get the job done, then hire support staff, then reward the people who have been building this company at the property level, THEN profit and expand.
    Figure out how to hire the right people before you hire them and then have to fire them. It's a perpetual mess every department seems to have in management, even at "Home Office."
    Get rid of pointless judgement tests that weed out random people instead of "bad" people. "Good" people who pass usually don't last anyways, it's just another roadblock to pre-employment.

    I have been working at Senior Village Management full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    - The residents
    - Some coworkers
    - White collar jobs are paid decently well.

    Cons

    - Management
    - Some coworkers
    - Not owning responsibilities
    - High school level finger pointing
    - "Blue Collar" jobs are not paid well and frequently mistreated.
    - Management was out of touch with people looking for their "product"
    - Management convinced that "product would sell itself", not understanding that seniors are some of the most resistant to change and moving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Listen to the people that are at the properties
    - Don't play the favorites game (you know you do)
    - Appreciate long-term employees
    - Don't reward employees' peacocking for regionals.

    Former Employee - Server in Brighton, MI
    Former Employee - Server in Brighton, MI

    I worked at Senior Village Management part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling. Shift lengths can very to meet your schedule. The work keeps you busy, you wont get bored. Leave with food every night. Many people to meet. Long-term stress level is low.

    Cons

    Minimum pay, unruly and demanding residents. The short term stress level can get high due to hectic shifts. The chance for injury like burns, cuts, slips and falls is high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure to keep enough employees trained and on hand for no-shows. The work gets hectic and stressful if there are not enough employees. Also, hire older people who depend on their work to keep them afloat. The high school and middle school students are great, but they do not depend on their jobs and therefore the job is low on their list of priorities. Hire people who want to work!
