I worked at Holiday Retirement full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

If you are interested in the care of seniors this is a good fit for you.This is also a good start for people who are seeking their first job.

Cons

Working at this facility means sacrificing your break times to meet timelines.At 9:45am daily when you should be working on your projects there is a mandatory take 10 .This is where you are given instructions about the rules governing the facility which ranges from the company vehicle maintenance to selling the facility to prospective clients.Be prepared to be driven like a slave to meet timelines and to avoid been paid overtime.

Advice to Management

Management talks down to the employees and push company policies without adjusting them to fit the facility.This facility need to provide staff facilities like bathrooms and a lunch room.Training opportunity should be provided from within for upward mobility in the company.

    I have been working at Holiday Retirement full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Making a difference in the life of seniors and their families, it really is rewarding,

    Cons

    I can only speak from several years experience in the midwest, the toxic culture in most of the regions comes from the director and he's incredibly good at micromanaging and running people into the ground. I've watched alot of good people get burned out, thrown away or run off.

    Advice to Management

    Time for new leadership at the top in the Midwest, employees are beaten down.
