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

Pros

You learn a lot about the older generations, you learn how to multi task and compromise.
You learn how to prioritize and the importance of customer satisfaction.

Cons

The only downside I had with Brookdale was I got very attached to my residents and their families and when one of them would pass away it was very hard. You have to be good with detachment in order to work here.

Advice to Management

none. The management there is great!

    I worked at Brookdale Senior Living as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really enjoyed my team, the caregivers, and residents.

    Cons

    Disliked the maintenance of the community. Absolutely no budget, so most things are broken.

    Advice to Management

    invest more in your community maintenance. Doesnt compete with Sunrise Senior Living.
