Pros

1. You will appreciate future jobs much more.
2. As with any job in geriatric care, you are afforded the opportunity to touch the lives of seniors.
3. The company offers MANY trainings....They are great if you want to know anything and everything there is to know about high pressure sales! That is the ONLY thing for which you will receive adequate training.

Cons

1. Staff to patient ratio is INSANELY low. There is a formula for how many labor hours you are allowed for care attendants, cooks, maintenance, & housekeeping. If they can't do it all (which is impossible) the salaried Director gets to pick up the slack.
2. Directors are not permitted to make any decisions on their own. They must seek divisional level approval to terminate an employee!
3. There is miles of red tape wrapped around everything that needs to be accomplished. Going through several months of Texas summer with no A/C because it took an act of congress for repairs/replacement to be approved is just crazy.
4. The budgets are so low that residents are subjected to substandard quality in all aspects of their lives.
5. Corporate does not consider local markets when assessing the needs of an individual home. (Mostly because they don't assess homes individually, they seem to think that all homes should run successfully based on the "cookie cutter" model dreamed up by some big wig executive who has never actually attempted to wotk at the house level and really assess what it will take for success!)

Typing this just makes me angry and hurts my heart for the residents who are left to the mercy of these corporate giants that could care less about them.

If you are in this industry for the purpose of CARING for the geriatric population, then this is not the right company for you!

If you, however, are a high pressure sales person who cares about nothing other than the thrill of making a sale...hey....Good luck to you! You will make sale after sale and do it all for free, because if the house doesn't maintain occupancy, you're never going to see the bonuses you are promised. Your financial success is dependent upon the currect residents being happy, well cared for, and sticking around.

Advice to Management

Give up while you still have money in your pockets! You are in enough deep sh*t across the country right now. People are starting to notice. Sell out to someone who is in this industry for the right reasons.

    Pros

    Help the poor peole that get sucked into living at the camoflaged hell!

    Cons

    You are constantly working to never make any of the corperates happy. Work work work and no praise or satisfaction from anyone. Get minimum wage with no raises even with perfect record.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to someone who cares about making a difference in others lives, positively.
