Benefits are pretty good. The people I worked with were absolute sweethearts. Everyone felt like family because the environment was very comfortable no matter how many Directors came and went. The staff looked out for the residents and the residents looked out for the staff (for the most part & in my experience). Serious conflict is far and few between, most of the daily stressors consist of perpetually-grumpy Mrs. Mable thinking her neighbors are talking too loud. Staff is quick to help each other. There is opportunity for growth as I was promoted to Engage Life Director after 3 years.
The pay for starters. The amount of roles you take on at an assisted living facility - (no matter what department but especially activities because unfortunately people misunderstand how much actually goes into event planning and executing) - can be overwhelming and chaotic. It’s not always the easiest job emotionally as you see a lot of residents come and go at fluctuating intervals. I ultimately resigned because of COVID regulations and lack of upper leadership support.

I received wisdom from the elderly and got food everyday. My bosses and coworkers were amazing.
Sometimes the elderly would say inappropriate things.

I had very good interactions from all of my coworkers and supervisors as they're very optimistic and fun to work with and very clean facility is the only positive thing. Work life balance is not bad long as you're entry level, you're able to shut off the computer after work. It's a good place to start your career to learn the basics, but not many people last. At least 7 people have quit while I was working there.
They focus on loyalty but you have to build your PTO. Every two weeks when you punch in your PTO gets build up by 1.5 hourish. No sick time so when you have covid you just have to use your PTO. which doesn't make sense and the higher ups will get mad at you because "you're not giving 100% to the company". This department MICRO Manages. It's all about pushing unobtainable metrics. It's mostly from the higher ups as they are given metrics.. and training is horrible. One meeting they will say one thing and next they change it up. There is no constantly and yet they're demanding you to meet their numbers and metrics. The most stressful part of this job. Disorganized. When Holiday and Atria merged they got a lot of mess from holiday. Experienced workers quit due to the incredible volume and there wasn't any guidance. Be ready to have no proper training and thrown in. The supervisors and managers are new and are overworked due to disorganization of the merge and the structure. This might be outdated information, but higher up rly pushes on metrics where it will drive you crazy and not afraid to cuss you out. Don't trust the higher up (singular one particular VP)... as much as they care about "loyalty", they dont have a problem letting you go due to their ego. They will say one thing and do the other. Be ready for office politics.
