    I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You make money so you can pay your bills. I have made many meaningful connections with residents and truly felt that I was helping them.

    Cons

    Upper management is corrupt at Brookdale Bear Creek Colorado Springs. Memory care lead does not help with residents and is cold/cruel to them. Only comes out to yell. Worked to defend a Med tech who was caught on video sleeping on the night shift because they were friends. Changes schedule with less than 24 hours notice without informing staff.

    Assisted living upper management has a lot of work to do, get annoyed when you give them care alerts. Sugar coat/lie to family over phone to make injuries/behavior seem
    Less severe. As short as 3/26/15 2 of 5 resident assistants called out and the remaining 3 had less than a month of experience. Rather than go in on her day off supervisor just had the med tech work as both resident assistant and Med tech on 3 floors with 80 people. Very dangerous.

    Associate who was a lead resident assistant that actually did his job and reported lazy people who were doing things like ignoring pages for an hour and not giving residents oxygen or yelling/cursing at residents put in two weeks, but was asked if he could stay on as PRN (as needed) supervisor is tired of having so much work so when lazy workers asked if she could instead not take him back she decided not to and has literally ignored him/not called him for weeks.

    Same supervisor is a bully who's sister is lead QMAP (Med tech). Allows sister any hours she wants while literally not asking any other staff what hours work for them and responding to requests with threats of less or no hours. Same supervisor will call you on your days off and if you can't cover a shift on your off day will say things like "Huh, I guess you really don't need the money huh?" And "Since you didn't want to come in are you tired, do you want less hours?"

    Current center director has never helped a resident since her started unlike the last one and is obsessed with cutting hours/number of staff.

    If you can handle seeing your superiors neglect residents and lie about them while ignoring reports and allowing people who lie steal and sit instead of work for hours to work there, good. If not, stay far away.

    Advice to Management

    Actually read and do something about all care alerts. Respect your employees. Don't allow cruel, uncaring people to stay employed. Communicate with your employee s. You're literally having 4 or more people in one department only or quit a month. You are doing something wrong.

    I worked at Emeritus Senior Living full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The residents, the ones who don't all have dementia, are very nice.

    Cons

    They're unorganized, they treat their staff bad. The management gossip about their employees and believe the gossip between employees. Night crew isn't supervised at all. Staff treat the residents badly. Each shift never completes the tasks assigned. Medication regulations not followed. Health code violations. OSHA violations. "Cliks" in workplace. Sleeping on Noc Shift. Was told when hired it was a full time position, worked on Noc shift, didn't even get 58 hours in two weeks!! Do Not recommend working for ever!!

    Advice to Management

    Yeah, COMPLETE NEW STAFF who follow rules and regulations. And who know how to treat and care for the elderly. During the time I worked there, med carts were left open and un- attended and when it was brought up to management it was dismissed. During the Noc shift employees would clock in from their break but continue to sleep. Employees left their wings for long periods of time, leaving residents unattended and wet. It is a mad house. And Not a place I would want to bring anyone I know to!!

    Pros

    The people are nice but slightly clueless right now.

    Cons

    Always shorthanded and always being asked to cover a shift but they are always trying to cut hours because of census. No one is responsible for anything. Not enough training for residents who should be in a skilled long term facility.

    Advice to Management

    Organization is a good key and so are more employees, enough at least to cover the floor.
