I have been working at Monarch Landing full-time (More than a year)
Benefits, Pay, Management - I don't have much to complain about. The staff resident ratio is about 1 to 5 which is much better than I have experienced in the past. Pay was slightly lower when I first started but we all got increased so that was good. The benefits are cheap and we have really good help from Human Resources if we have questions. The buildings are clean, my co-workers are generally nice, and the free food is a perk (not for everyone but the food is really good!) I don't know why anyone wouldn't like this place. I come in and do my job and have no problems.
My co-workers complain about their schedules but I know that the company does what is best for the residents. Several of my co-workers request to have their schedules changed after a few months due to going back to school, which aren't always changed and they get mad but I don't know much about how easily that can be changed.
Some staff who have been here a while can be set in their ways and it comes off as mean. I felt that way when I first started. Now I understand that it is about the residents and that we do some things for a reason.
Advice to Management
We have seen some of our managers leave and move into other positions over the last couple years but it has been for the better. We had some managers who didn't listen to the staff and didn't follow through but we see much more manager presence on the floor and can ask questions if we need to. Keep working with us as often as you can and we will be able to learn from each other. That will help us make this place even better!
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Monarch Landing (Naperville, IL).
I filled out an online application and then someone called me to ask a few questions. They told me that they would call me back for an interview if the managers were interested. I ended up hearing from them and interviewed with Human Resources and a manager. It was not long after the interview that I was hired for the position. This was the easiest interview process I have been through.
