    I worked at Five Star Senior Living part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The residents and their families were the best thing about the job.

    Cons

    Where shall I begin? Understaffing was rampant, particularly with care managers, resulting in resident care not being commensurate with the huge monthly fees paid by residents. Those residents who needed more assistance were often "planted" in the lobby and ignored for parts of the day. Management's emphasis was more on sweeping problems under the rug rather than dealing with them.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough staff so that these wonderful seniors living in your facility get the minimum care you would expect at a hotel, much less an assisted living facility. Solicit input on problems and actively work to solve them.

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

    Pros

    Residents were the only thing good.

    Cons

    Poorly staffed, workers always unhappy with pay, no activities for residents, food subpar, residents never given what they were "promised" when their asses were kissed and butt scratched to get the many thousands of dollars for admittance. Few select families absolutely unreal in demands for Granny. Men make good administrators but that's all. Hey, why pay a man when we can pay a woman 10,000 less and be able to intimidate them easily! Left there after HR idiot defimated my character and accepted the lies of lower staffed employees. Had to get an act of congress to fire a C N A that stole things, but when they got a chance to cut a hard workers pay, in order to then be able to hire someone for thousands less, they jumped on it.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves, start using some of those extremely large Bonuses you get, to help your staff out. You know, the ones that make those big bonus checks possible! and, try doing a little real work for a change. Maybe you'll actually remember how it was to have a real life and you might even find you feel good about what you're doing, and not just ripping the old folks off.
