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

Pros

I loved working with the seniors, and I was lucky enough to have some of the best co workers

Cons

My husband and I spent a lot of time on the phone making cold calls, the took away the time we could have been using to do our jobs, and taking care of things.

Advice to Management

Let the community managers be mangers and bring in telemarketers, and don't need a full time CSL, the community managers can handle that.

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

    Pros

    The residents are wonderful and deserve a better quality of living that they currently get through Holiday.

    Cons

    Incompetent management, from top to bottom. They run people through their management training program like cannon fodder and don't properly screen them. Turn over is huge! This is bad for the residents, the staff & the company as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    The bottom line should not be how you gauge success. The shift from a "residents come first" philosophy to an "do anything to fill the building" philosophy is killing what was once an amazing company to work for.

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

    Pros

    The only reason to work there is the satisfaction you get from sincerely helping the seniors.

    Cons

    Long hours, constant sales pressure to get those move-ins. The community managers don't seem to want to work as a team; very dictatorial.

    Advice to Management

    More traing for team building. The Cos need to have more input into the process.
