    I worked at Golden Living (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They gave me decent hours at first.

    Cons

    They promised full-time, but then started giving me 26 hours a week. Also, I saw an employee fired on the basis of an unproven and fantastic accusation.

    They also promised me a cook position, but then gave it to another aide that was guilty of job abandonment and had 1/4 the time experience that I did.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth to your employees.

    I worked at Golden Living full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wonder place to work. Patients care ❤

    Cons

    Work is hard, staffing problems pick-up about total 120 to 130 or more hours in 2 weeks

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie on your employees. Better yet look at how much of a team player they are with the pick-up. And working their full time Schedule, with mandation, no call off. Sick coming into work my shift and couldn't work over, only to be charged with abandoning my job. how right is this.

    I worked at Golden Living full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My favorite part is the great experience with the residents and being able to help someone in need. They were also flexible with hours. Great rehab center.

    Cons

    Really bad management. Expected way too much for two CNA's taking care of 25+ residents. Bad team work. Low pay rate. No pay raise after 7 years. Disrespectful employees.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the right people. Hire people that actually want to work. Train CNA's better. ED should have a medical background of some sort.
