Pros

The best reason to work at holiday was the residence of the people who work there in the building

Cons

The upper management has no clue what's going on in each building and the competition between the managers and the comanagers is terrible we have we had worked for the managers from hell in one building and the managers from heaven in another building

Advice to Management

Well it would be to get back all of the managers that they have gotten rid of over the last couple years . But they should at least trained the new people that they have a little bit longer than three weeks.

    Pros

    You meet some pretty amazing people that will touch your life forever. This is the ONLY thing that I loved about my job, the Residents.

    Cons

    Holiday is a very cheap company. My values and integrity were tested everyday when we had to tell the residents no, because of management's poor planning and bad budgeting. I would feel awful because the residents deserve so much better than what they are getting.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who are truly there for the resident and not just to bring home a paycheck, this can be a very rewarding job if there were better people in charge.

    Pros

    Being able to experience the changes in the senior residences that I was responsibile, will always miss them.

    Cons

    Recruiters and upper management do not really fully explain what the job is really all about. Rude awaking when you have given up everything and you start to spiral down from day one.

    Advice to Management

    The parent company needs to really understand what is expected of them if they want to really compete in the senior retirement business.
