    I have been working at Aegis Living part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They work with your schedule, offer benefits for part time employees, you usually have a set schedule, they do fun family activities for workers and their families a few times a year.

    Cons

    Work every weekend (unless you are lucky and get a schedule without weekends), 45 minute unpaid breaks, they count office staff in the ratio for workers/residents which means the workers on the floor are technically understaffed. (this is new and hopefully will not last long first time in 3 years that they have done this)

    Advice to Management

    Go back to 30 minute unpaid breaks and do not count break time against hours worked to qualify for benefits.

    I have been working at Aegis Living full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are friendly, very diverse, we have a great HSD and it appears that managers care about staff as well as residents. Flexibility is a big plus, especially living in a bad traffic area like Seattle/Puget Sound. Any little hiccup in traffic can make you late in this area. It's like being in LA or SFO.

    Cons

    Sad to see residents transition or move on to other places. Very sad to see favorite managers get moved, but always hoping for the best when new ones come on.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider paying better and maybe allowing 8-10-12 shifts when possible.

    I have been working at Aegis Living full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is such a good, cozy, warm vibe in the building. I really enjoy coming to work each day. The residents help to make my job worthwhile. This is a real feel-good job. Not many people can say that they love what they do, but I can. The staff and residents all feel like my home away from home.

    Cons

    I enjoy what I do that it is hard for me to pull away when it's time to leave for the day.

    Hires some of the post caring and positive employees. Lots of training g offered and room for advancement. Property I worked at had lots of animails on property, which the residents loved.

    Wages are way too low for the area. You are taking care of minimum 14 residents. That less than $1 an hour per resident.

    Pros

    Amazing and proactive management team who cares, listens, and helps employees. Most coworkers are friendly, some are even passionate and love what they do. Positive working environment is always a plus. High turn over rate is typical in this line of job, but they are working hard to address this issue. Great company to work for, especially at Bellevue location. Already advertise this company to any of my friends who are looking for job. Even come to work on my day off to hang out, that is how much I love this place and its people.

    Cons

    I had a chance to work with amazing people who cared so much about the residents. I feel like there should be a system to let employees to nominate or just give out kudos to those, it would be great. Some great work or dedication was not recognized simply because the management team cannot be there the whole time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work that you guys are doing.Just amazing and positive working environment. Just the tiny change to the system, recognize more hard-work!

    Pros

    The culture of the company is extraordinary. Every body I have met has a common goal, which is to serve and support other staff members and provide our residents with excellent care.
    Aegis encourages going beyond what is requested from our jobs by giving certain autonomy to all associates.

    Cons

    The care industry doesn't compensate the line staff very well. Aegis probably does a better job than the average company, but needs to stay competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture!
