I have been working at Holiday Retirement full-time (More than a year)

Pros

HQ is located in new building in a upscale area

Cons

Abnormal high employee turnover, large work loads, and everything is a crisis. Poor onboarding policies, cold and sterile environment. High sales pressures.

Advice to Management

Reward excellent employees. Get down in the trenches and see what's really needed to build out the 5th largest independent living company in the US. Set reasonable expectations and provide the training and resources to those who work hard for you.

    I worked at Holiday Retirement full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you love to serve seniors and bringing a smile to their faces and giving them someone to speak with-than this is maybe the job for you!

    Cons

    If the pros are true than this is not the best fit for you because this behavior is not welcome nor appreciated!

    Advice to Management

    Please please train the community managers on Team work and the value of honesty and integrity in all dealings. If only the community managers would follow the directive that they are equal with the co managers it would so much better for the residents!

    I have been working at Holiday Retirement full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I do not get paid enough for my physcial labor but the relationships I have gained with the residents and their families are TRULY priceless.

    Cons

    I would love to see this company on the TV show "Undercover Boss". The managers and/or higher-ups would not last eight minutes training with me let alone eight hours. TOO much work NOT enough time.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps change the slogan from "Holiday Touch" to "Holiday Marketing" because that is all it is anyways.
