    Best Place I have Worked as A CNA

    Home Health Aide (Former Employee)
    Wauwatosa, WI

    ProsExtremely fair pay, safe work environment with 24/7 security, flexible schedules (as Home Health Aide anyways), fabulous residents, very clean facility, excellent management, and excelllent/hard working co-workers. People actually take care of the residents very well here, they care. Not only do they care about their residents, they care about their residents' families, their co-workers and their families, etc. It is a very tight knit family of employees at St. Camillus. I regret leaving this employer, but had to due to family circumstances. I am trying to reapply and get back in here, as I loved it so much. Also someone said poor career advancement, I would say I disagree. I worked here for six months. I put in my letter of resignation, and they said they wouldn't accept it, and begged me to stay some how but my family situation wouldn't allow it. They then offered to promote me to two different positions with better hours and pay. I think if you're a hard worker, going above and beyond the call of duty, you will have no problem moving up here.

    ConsBenefits are available but extremely expensive (I think it was a few hundred a pay period JUST for health for two people or something crazy!).
    Tattoos/piercings highly frowned upon, no matter how small
    Sometimes poor communication between departments

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on interdepartmental communications, get better health care packages

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A place where strife is common.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHired directly out of CNA program.
    Double shift available (extra income )

    ConsInterpersonal conflicts.
    Staff not getting along.
    Management unwilling/unable to rectify simple issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease base salary. Don't be so quick to slam your employees out the door.

    You're better off unemployed

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNothing really, nothing at all

    ConsNo training, no support from managers, very high turnover rate, unless you've been there more than ten years you will not be respected or accepted, no recognition for a job well done, expected to work 7 days a week and all holidays, no work life balance, you will not receive PTO payout when you leave, not Christian based at all, unorganized from the top down, inexperienced management, they do not follow regulations

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement refuse to listen to any employee suggestions to improve morale, decrease turnover or improve processes. You made your bed and now you have to lie in it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Snotty people who like to gossip

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI got a paycheck and that's about it.

    ConsEverything! They are disorganized, racist and don't have a lot of training (even though they say they do). Management talks behind people's backs. I was told they had a 39% turnover rate from someone in HR that told me, I shouldn't know this but she's gonna tell me anyways. They are supposed to be a religious organization but act far from it. They think they know what they are doing but they don't!

    Advice to Senior ManagementActually be a part of the community instead of clinging together. Stop talking about bad employees but they will end up hearing it and you will be screwed!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Comfortable Place of Employment

    Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee)
    Wauwatosa, WI

    ProsComfortable workload, work environment. There is a strong sense of purpose among my fellow employees and I. Decent benefits, PTO accrues faster than previous jobs

    ConsI took a pay cut by accepting a job here. Policies can change pretty quickly around here. They will send staff home if there is a low census, sometimes for weeks at a time.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Twilight Zone

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Wauwatosa, WI

    Prosthe pro is that I am no longer an employee there

    Conspay, schedule (asked to be available to work on weekends but would not pay out hourly pager pay), on call, management (lack of), corporate environment, high turnover rate, lack of growth opportunities, rigid in thinking (says they are open to change but when it comes down to it they are not willing to make changes to save time or money), very much like high school full of cliques (good luck fitting in with all the superior employees who have been there 10-30 years), the campus in general has an odd sense of entitlement, structured orientation is one day learning about the campus and the rest is figuring things out on your own, very limited guidance from management, you will be scolded when you try to directly resolve problems with coworkers or clients, when you get discharged you won't receive any of your PTO

    Advice to Senior Managementbe honest, be open to change, be realistic, be fair

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Exclusive Twilight Zone Campus

    Registered Nurse (Former Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    ProsI am no longer employed there and that is definitely a pro

    Cons- scheduled hours/no work life balance: You will be told the job is M-F 8-430. In real life, there are no boundaries and you will be expected to be available to work every weekend without additional on call pay.
    - on call is both triage and visit nurse position: Expect to be called called frequently and having to go out for ridiculous calls because the ongoing problems have not been addressed during the day. While you are out for visits, your phone will not stop ringing making it almost impossible to provide hands on care.
    - lack of skilled management
    - unclear job expectations
    - unrealistic job expectations: Expect to work 2-3 different positions and not have enough time to do all of your jobs.
    - corporate culture: Expect not to fit in with the old timers who have been there 10-30 years. It is not a welcoming environment. Residents in independent living have a huge sense of entitlement and are the most demanding.
    - Structured orientation: Equals one day learning about the campus and then you're left to flounder on your own. The training for their inept medical charting system was half hour with a manager and binders full of instructions.
    - no integrity: You will be told to do something. You will do it. Then you will be yelled at for doing what you were told to do in the first place.
    - turnover rate super high: No one there is willing to look at why there is high turnover.
    - not open to change/employee suggestions: You will be told that they are looking for someone flexible and willing to identify problems and help fix them. When you identify problems and bring solutions, they will tell you they are going to table the issue and it will never be addressed because 'that is the way they have always done things'.

    Advice to Senior Managementbe fair, be realistic, be understanding, be open to change, be fair to all employees, provide guidance and support, implement a real structured orientation, provide clear job expectations, hire management that has the ability to manage

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
