I have been working at Capital Senior Living full-time (More than 3 years)
I enjoy serving the residents whom are first priority. The welcoming atmosphere, and fellow teammates who continue to work their butt off accomplishing the needs for our residents without hesitation in every dept. of our building. I'm a proud employee.
It's challenging to say the least working in healthcare. Add struggling with turn over of staff & having some high acuity to maintain in the building. The wages are lower than surrounding communities or even businesses in general.
Advice to Management
Conduct wage surveys of current buildings & their surrounding companies & make changes to be competitive in pay to help keep our excellent team members that are leaving to our competitors because they too have families to support. Listen to our voices & let it be known we're being heard & the corporation cares to keep us at the frontline in order for the communities to strive. Add incentives for your employees who have perfect attendance, hard work, etc. The employees are struggling with feeling valued by more than the managers inside the building.
I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Capital Senior Living (Fort Wayne, IN).
It was a basic interview about work experience, what you like about being a CNA and working in healthcare, and what hours you are available. They seemed to be more focused on filling a slot than really wanted to know my abilities/interest in healthcare.
