    The culture at FVT is a direct reflection of the type of people who live and work here – honest, genuine, welcoming, and hard working. We love to know our team members are comfortable and feel so well supported. Thank you for all your efforts to keep our campus in tip-top shape, and for letting us know how we’re doing.

    I have been working at Friendship Village Tempe part-time

    Pros

    Some of the greatest things about Friendship Village that will always stand out are: • Superb hospitality - from the Staff to the residents, everyone treats one another with utmost respect, care, and compassion, creating a very secure and warm atmosphere. • Great focus - most companies say they care and know their employees, but FVT takes that to the next level and spends the time to get to know you as a person and as a employee. • Focused - while FVT may not pay as well as other jobs, they go above and beyond in achieving their mission and goal to give their staff/residents the best experience every day, every hour. At FVT, money doesn't get in the way of their team from giving everyone exceptional service and fabulous experiences.

    Cons

    Most of these are due to current events, so they are subject to change: • Chaotic to start - at the beginning of my employment, I found things to be a bit on the more challenging side due to the amount of improvisation that needed to be done. Because COVID-19 has largely distributed the business world, FVT has had to make new routines/regulations that can at first be a bit tricky to handle at first. • Lots of responsibility - working at FVT requires high performance, willpower, and dedication. Those who aren't interested in the genuine benefits of others and servitude to the elderly may not find Friendship Village suitable for them. Passion and accountability are two major qualities that are very likely to be required when working with FVT. While not everyone may find these aspects to be "cons", there are those who will find these qualifications unsuitable for them. That is why I deemed them neccessary to entail. If these aspects are of no bother to you and you want to help people in the world, then working at FVT is the absolute perfect place for you to do just that.
