    I worked at Capital Senior Living part-time

    Pros

    flexible schedule if you have school or have another part time job

    Cons

    You don't get much training, you have to get along with management or they will shun you away. You have to understand the job RIGHT away or pretty much they get mad if you ask questions. They can't get enough people to work weekends, so they have to higher a lot of staff to cover those shifts, which means fewer hours during the week.

    Advice to Management

    Take control of the lead/assistant positions. They are rude to staff below them and do whatever they want.

    I have been working at Capital Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    The residents and the team are great.

    Cons

    The Regional for the East only cares about numbers. No care for the residents or the employees. It is totally about money. Integrity issues.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Doing things right will make the company grow, not only worrying about the numbers. Think of the residents and the employees

    I worked at Capital Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    Working with seniors is rewarding

    Cons

    company is so concerned with penny pinching many corners are cut and the staff and residents suffer. Low moral from dismal anual raises (2% max) and no bonuses whatsoever. Pay is low to begin with. Started compeltely new at a competitor at 10k more than my 5 yearsa at csl.

    Advice to Management

    care about your employees and seniors in some way.

    The residents made it the reason to show up to work.

    Pros

    Love my facility and co-workers, love the residents.

    Cons

    Pay is some of the lowest in the industry. Lots of turnover with part time workers because they cannot get enough hours and no insurance.

    Pros

    Family oriented. Residents are absolutely wonderful. Coworkers are eager to help out in all departments. Does not look like or smell like a nursing home

    Cons

    The former administrator was awful very abusive towards staff. Corporate was blind to what goes on in the building. Staff feel that corporate will not listen to concerns and if concerns are made reprimands come down on staff through the communities ED

    Advice to Management

    Regional ED need more involvement as well as corporate.

    Pros

    Freedom to run your own business for the most part. No corporate policies and procedures that are ever changing, etc.

    Cons

    Hardly any support for management in the buildings. You are on your own. Capital offers benefits to some of their buildings and not others. Offered no insurance whatsoever in the building I worked in. Salaries are not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the people who take care of your assets.

    Pros

    It's a job. You can get assisted living experience.

    Cons

    Some facilities are very poorly ran. Paychecks are often incorrect and it takes a long time to be corrected. Bed bugs went untreated in a Ohio facility. Also very low paying and the acuity of some residents is higher than what is appropriate for AL
