    Pros

    * Hires new grads was my very first job
    * Nice and helpful CNA's

    THAT IS ALL

    Cons

    * Was told to not drink any of the water and when I did I got an bladder infection
    * there was 25+ residents and only 2 CNA's
    * no night time staff so if there is no clean linen you're screwed
    *concerns weren't taken serious and after I left I didn't receive my final check, contacted the head office and got the run around
    *OVER NIGHT nurses go to sleep in the medicine rooms or go to the cafeteria
    *as a CNA a part of the overnight staff you will also have to take on the role as security for an hour which to me I feel like either hire night security or pay me for doing an extra job.
    *nurses treat CNA's as if they are beneath them (now that I'm a Physicians Assistant I know that was wrong)
    * the facility I worked was infested with roaches and had flying ants mind you it was in the winter time.

    Advice to Management

    NO NEED TO SAY ANYTHING THEY ARE COLLECTING MONEY AND DONT CARE

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience and learn if this type of work is for you. I do not regret working there.

    Cons

    They have a very poor system in place to train employees - I personally was never trained, I learned as I went along. the work environment is extremely negative, everyone is overworked and most do not feel appreciated. They are always understaffed and I feel horrible with how residents don't receive the care that they deserve. Staff try but it is hard when there is never enough staff. I don't feel that certain management relate to staff or understand the stresses of the job. I think those certain few are why a lot of staff leave.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of certain management and develop programs to help train all employees as well as for dept. heads. Show that you appreciate the work of your employees, even when they are doing regular work-not just when they go beyond. No one will do more if they are not shown gratitude for the work they are suppose to do

    Pros

    I was able to get experience

    Cons

    Always short, case managers were pulled to the floor constantly. State was always there on complaints. The care of the residents is not up to par. Residents are not being repositioned, showered, or cared for as they should be. A lot of skin break down. There was so much disrespect towards upper management from the CNAs. The hours as a case manager were inconsistent.
