    Pros

    The residents and most of the staff are wonderful.

    Cons

    It used to be a company that practiced what it preached. It says its all about loving-kindness. Not anymore. It's a business now. Money driven, and with at least one higher up who is mentally and verbally abusive, who listens to no one but herself. They claim they are the company to move up in and find your career. Bull. Only for some who have to be in the in crowd. Good, great people have left in droves the last year or driven out due to the pathetic excuse they call management.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the administrator before she runs this once great facility into the ground. The pay is lacking as well.

    First job experience
    Will hire as young as 14
    Most residents are nice
    Many locations to choose from
    Easy hours to manage as a student
    Self-scheduling shifts

    Management was not always good
