    I have been working at St. John's Lutheran Ministries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone is valued at St John's regardless of position. The leaders work hard to treat everyone with hope, dignity and love..

    Cons

    Salaries are very low and because of high turnover we are often understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Better benefits might help retain employees despite our low wages.

    I worked at St. John's Lutheran Ministries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked in the cottages and it is probably in some ways not as busy as other long-term care facilities though that depends on if they are full and the residents you have there. If you like caring for the same people and doing all the work (cleaning, cooking, meds (assisted living), laundry, team meetings) then you might like it.

    Cons

    The management is not very good from the supervisor all the way up. I suppose this is standard in long-term care and working as a CNA is tough but you don't get support from your supervisor or other management. They call the cottages "self-managed" which really just means they expect their current staff to cover all shifts even if they are short staffed and also if you ever want a vacation. So this means over worked employees in an already difficult setting to work in. Overall, employee moral is pretty low. They will try to bully people into picking up shifts and coming in on short notice (ie that day).


  3. Poorly Managed at the Expense of the Employees & Elderly Residents

    I worked at St. John's Lutheran Ministries part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours; great coworkers; loving community

    Cons

    -Lots of doubles, hard work, no appreciation, poorly managed, deep in debt as a company -Poor training; over-saturation of disabled employees -Favoritism a common management strategy; most employees are resented by management in a paranoid work environment; unlikely to get a positive review once you leave -Upper level management often incompetent or absent from the workplace

    Advice to Management

    -Realize that labor is the most important asset of a long-term care facility -Do not overwork employees for little pay -Reduce the number of managers
