    Pros

    A happy and fun place to work. Nice managers and great co-workers. Positive environment for both seniors and employees.

    Cons

    A lot of turn over when it came to caregivers. Sometimes, seniors feel neglected when there are too many residents vs. employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to have more activities that involve seniors getting to know the employees. Seniors love getting to know the managers and employees.

    Pros

    Making the residents happy was always a plus, knowing that my work was helping them. The residents were the only good part about the job.

    Cons

    Staff at McCandless on 4th floor were very rude about 80 % of the time, people with the same position as you will try and order you around like they are the boss. Yoi do a lot of work for very littlw pay, the taxes taket about 200 from each paycheck. Also, I was fired because I got pregnant and had a lot of morning sickness so I had to call off and they fired me because of that. Overall, not a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Get more organized and hire people that will actually care for the residents and care about making positive relationships with co workers.
