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

Pros

Holiday finally agreed to "settle" their suit. We are all receiving back pay for our hard work and dedication to the residents.

Cons

Management and CSL's are so afraid of getting fired that the entire atmosphere is filled with liars, backstabbers, and tension. You cannot trust anyone who works here, they will pass the blame in a heartbeat. There needs to be more honest and positive communication between staff. This is unlikely to happed due to the constant fear everyone is in,

Advice to Management

Quit ignoring the 80% turn-over rate. Residents deserve consistent Managers and things can never run smoothly when your Managers are forced to "sale" more than "care". CSL's also need a more proactive boss, they rarely do their jobs and then force managers to take up the slack.

    Pros

    It is Independent living with meals served. An enclosed envioment to provide movement.

    Cons

    Increased rent yearly, Lack of Contracted Services and Activity, Management changes frequently, Poor Maintance, Poor Holiday Management Owners with only the dollar as their motivation. Management and Corproate always passes the buck about who makes decisions. And best of all, If you Die, you will continue to be charged for the rent another 30 days even if though your not using any of the services, food , utilities, entertainment or transportation.

    Advice to Management

    Learn What Remorse is, Care about the Elderly instead of just seeing an easy Buck AND Reund the 30 day rent you Ripped off from My mothers Bank Account.

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

    Pros

    Leadership team, training & investment in people, career path which is obtainable, great place to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Your time is no longer your own. Very long hours, weekends, live in managers...you get what you pay for, turnover. Lack of professionalism in the field. Focus often changes.
    Regional team thrown into the deep end. More structured training. Job shadowing in other regions for a strong start.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who have been in business, have owned their own business and have been succesful for live in managers. Training of managers should happen over time in more than one community. Shake up the trainers, not everyone does it the same way and bad habits or beliefs get passed on when only one team is involved in the majority of their training.
