    I worked at Chartwell Seniors Housing full-time

    Pros

    I can't think of any because this company is not very good at what they do.

    Cons

    Dietary staff at the corporate level (consultants) are the most incompetent people I've ever met. They cost the company good people with forward thinking ideas. They haven't a clue how to nurture intelligent thought.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people. Trust your people. You are the reason people get angry and upset. Take responsibility for it. Fix your problems.

    I worked at Chartwell Seniors Housing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great residents and families and the mission statement for memory living is great. Pretty good training for memory living neighbourhood

    Cons

    Corporate does not support managers with HR issues. Employees that are a danger to the residents have more chances for retraining and to keep being a danger but management does not get HR TRAINING and zero support when disciplining staff. Staff who get disciplined go off on stress and threaten company and make ridiculous claims about managers and they let managers go and keep the problem staff

    Advice to Management

    Look at another company

    I have been working at Chartwell Seniors Housing part-time

    Pros

    The Residents. Many lovely (and unfortunately long suffering) people with many interesting stories to tell.

    Cons

    Ineffective and irresponsible Management. Cutbacks wherever possible (though not extending to management) to preserve a healthy bottom line for Chartwell. Insanitary conditions.

    Advice to Management

    It would serve Chartwell better if Residents were treated as though they really matter and that their welfare and happiness was the priority. It would improve the Chartwell reputation and in turn occupancy and hence the ever important bottom line.

    The corporate culture is toxic, and staff treatment varies wildly from department to department. Some managers will block you from applying for internal job opportunities in other departments.
