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

    Pros

    Working here was a challenge, but it did teach me how to be a leader and also how to fulfill some nurse duties, such as assements

    Cons

    Management was in shambles, they were more friends than my superiors. I did not receive adequate training, and when I told them I was not ready they said "you'll figure it out". Since I was passing medications to approximately 55 people whose faces I had not memorized yet, this was a dangerous situation. Their charting system was outdated and time consuming. the hours that I spent with that could've been used toward resident care, but they didn't seem to mind. Also was always calling me in, despite me already working 40 hours a week because their staff was already unreliable.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your new employees when they say they're not ready, especially after only 3-4 days a training. Update your systems. And when you repeatedly have unreliable staff doing no call no shows and being late, fire them.

    Pros

    No shortage in needed work as its open 7 days a week. Easy to speak with managers.

    Cons

    High turnover rates in some departments. My location may have been an anomaly, but in the 2 years I worked there, there were 4 executive Directors.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest a tighter control on the quality of workers. It seemed to me they were hiring people they knew would quit or be fired quickly so as to avoid pay raises.

    Pros

    This was a very good company to work for. They were flexible with my hours and a good salary for the position.

    Cons

    It seemed like they were always short staffed, either in the kitchen or out on the floor. I enjoy working so it wasn't a big deal for me.

    Pros

    The staff was friendly and hard working. Things run smoothly here. I really enjoyed my job. It was a fun and rewarding place to work. The patients as well as staff were wonderful.

    Cons

    The only downside is that I never got the full time hours that were promised to me even though I had an excellent work review and patients as well as employees spoke highly of my work. Maybe they just didn't want to fork over the benefits. After many months of this I had to move on.

    Advice to Management

    When you have a reliable and hard working employee who is dedicated to your company it's probably a good idea to do what you can within reason to hang on to them. People who take pride in their work seems to be a jewel these days.
