    I worked at Extendicare full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime and situated in a small town.

    Cons

    Zero moral boosting, too many mandates, little pay and an overwhelming workload. At the time of employment it was 10/hr start and a yearly 1% pay raise; hopefully rate of pay was increased due to the responsibilities of the job

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay, additional help on the floor, and provide moral boosters.

    Great team-work. CNA's were good.

    Hire better employees so there isn't such a high turnover.

    I worked at Extendicare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is no pro to this building even after the last company was sued due to shoty care. New company bought it and they are just as bad.

    Cons

    Horrible, I mean the worst nursing home to work for. "Arbors at Milford" has the worst management I've ever had to work under. They will tell you whatever you want to hear while hiring you. After you hit the floor it all becomes lies. Morale, management, Pay sucks to!

    Advice to Management

    Advice to corporate, fire all management and hire people who actually love and care for people.
