    Pros

    Love the residents and families. Competitive pay, nice buildings, co-workers, shift availability. It’s hard to find a positive that makes Cantex stand out above others.

    Cons

    Upper management simply doesn’t care. The floor staff, are the ones working hardest to provide quality care, while being blamed for the building’s short comings. There never seems to be a budget for anything, except CEO salaries. Turnover is a nightmare. The health insurance is expensive and has a high deductible. Floor staff work short handed more often than not. Management inconsistent with how they address issues and adhere to policies. Management bends policies to suit their needs and agendas. The pharmacy has limited hours of operation. There is after hours available, but nurses are reprimanded for using the service because of cost. Most facilities use 24 hour pharmacies that make multiple deliveries and immediately process new admissions. No additional cost as it’s included in the contract. Cantex supposedly owns the pharmacy, but there’s been little benefit facility staff can see.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your floor employees. Invest in them. That would help the turnover. People don’t like starting new jobs, and are often left with no other choice. And pharmacy... there’s got to be a better way.

    Pros

    It is difficult to find any pros, but I do appreciate my current employer so much more for having worked at a Cantex facility. I also learned that it is sometimes worth it to take a significant pay cut to leave a bad situation. PTO is generous, but it is difficult to use the PTO one has accrued because all departments are constantly short staffed, so PTO is frequently not approved. Pay is above average industry standard.

    Cons

    Long hours, constantly understaffed, expectations beyond anything humanly possible, management is condescending and actually uses profane language towards staff in patient areas. The electronic documentation is not nursing friendly and requires double and triple documentation. If you truly care about patient care this is not the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the nurses, they are leaving in droves for a reason. I am a previous employee of the Lufkin location, and it was the worst job experience I have ever had. When I gave notice, I was offered more money to stay and I turned it down, taking a pay cut from my current wages to go to a different facility. It ultimately hurts the bottom line to disregard the dissatisfaction and high turnover of staff. If your staff is unhappy, then your patients will also be unhappy. I could write 10 pages on things that the management could improve on, but you didn't listen then and you won't listen now. Overall, listen to the nurses or continue to experience the level of staff turn over that you currently experience.

    I worked at Cantex Continuing Care Network full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Only pro I came out with was a love for the patients, it broke my heart to have to leave them.

    Cons

    Upper management and front office staff look down on everyone and expect everyone to work hard with ZERO appreciation or recognition. They continue to add patients without adding staff, sometimes even cutting staff back which is completely overwhelming, even patient families notice and offer the nurses or CNA’s help on occasion. The on call policy is a joke. When someone calls in on the weekend, it is looked over even though the person on call is the one that suffers. No one is held accountable and the staff there have to pick up the slack. Some people get special treatment because they know the right person when others who have worked there longer and/or harder just have to get by and watch it happen. I have literally seen people in the office make fun of a residents family member and it was disgusting, unprofessional, and ultimately the straw that broke the camels back with my decision to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Have some compassion not only for the residents, but your staff members. Everyone works for the same goal but it certainly doesn’t feel like it.
