    I have been working at Benchmark Senior Living full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mostly, Great Residents, lots of activities for the residents and food is great for them

    Cons

    not enough on the job training for the amount of residents a CNA covers in a shift. Some CNA's give it a bad reputation. Depending upon your shift- you could be working with prejudice girls that wont help you. They have a policy if you see abuse, report it- but watch out if you do- friends and co-workers take care of each other. You also don't know what floor you're working until you get there, which could pose a problem- the work load per floor is not balanced. Saw CNA's disrespect residents rights.

    Advice to Management

    train the CNA's yourself-see for yourself. Balance the number of residents with equal share of CNA's on duty- too little staff.

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

    Pros

    meet a few amazing people

    Cons

    -gossiping managers
    -rampant favoritism
    -people terminated based on he said/she said
    -red, yellow, green hit list to weed out the undesirable associates
    -backstabbing
    -new prospects more important than current residents
    -coffee and candor is a joke
    -targeting associates that managers don't like
    -care based on how much a resident is worth (he is worth x amount of dollars, so make sure we are meeting his needs)
    -what happened to Tom Grape's mission statement
    -what happened to making it PERSONAL?
    -racially biased company

    Advice to Management

    Tom grape and Stephanie Handleson needs to make a surprise visit and listen to the front line associates if you ever want to change the culture.
