    Pros

    Work has great value, opportunity to help seniors. Lots of opportunities to be mobile as company has many sites around country. In MN we have education scholarships to help Kay for secondary education

    Cons

    Application process is cumbersome, but new talent management system is on its way, which will be a tremendous help. Large company, slow to make decisions sometimes

    I worked at Good Samaritan Society full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with residents. Loved them but not how other coworkers treated them.

    Cons

    They do not live out their mission. They use their mission to be not for profit but it's all about profit. They lost sight of Hoeger vision. They preach it but don't practice it. The rude stay while the ones who care get walked on and thrown out.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to your mission. Treat your employees and residents with respect.

    I have been working at Good Samaritan Society full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The residents and showing God's love through our care and service. The mission statement is what drew me in.

    Cons

    Not enough time allowed to spend with residents one-on-one. Too many other delegates tasks such cleaning rooms, serving food, washing dishes, laundry, leading activities, Not enough time to do essential duties such as monitoring patients and passing medications. Really Low pay for all we do. no breaks beside 30 mins to eat. Management doesn't care.

    Advice to Management

    Raise our pay to motivate your staff to stay! Live up to your motto. Have a nurse working on the weekends for crisis situations. Hire your own dishwasher, housekeeper and activities person. Residents get bored. Help us medication aids focus on passing meds in a safe and consistent way without being rushed. Pay is a decent living wage. We know nuch residents pay and deserve to be compensated. It really does affect the residents as they count on us around the clock. We are the closest people to th and they rely on seeing the same smiling faces they've come to know.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the residents and caring for them. I also got as much overtime as I wanted. There was always something to do, never bored.

    Cons

    Employees overworked, lack of ambitious employees, uneven amount of work distributed among employees, awarded for being a great employee with additional work and responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Haven't worked there for two years so I don't know the current management.

    I have been working at Good Samaritan Society part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Homey feeling, caring workers, CLEAN

    Cons

    Some aides should work in a factory and not around people, let alone elderly people

    Advice to Management

    Quit delegating, and start working !! Stop trying to run a job that you've never performed yourself

    I worked at Good Samaritan Society part-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the residents. And most of my co-workers were friendly. The training was far below expectations though.

    Cons

    The facility was understaffed. It wasn't very good pay for the work being performed. I was in training and quit shortly after.

    Advice to Management

    I do not believe that management realized how hard the job was for very little pay. I wish the job paid more.

    Pros

    The assistant nursing directors were pretty awesome. Always willing to listen to your concerns and complaints.

    Cons

    Not only was the scheduling always messed up, we were usually always understaffed and most of us were getting paid less than a dishwasher at one of the chain restaurants here in town. Pretty f-d up if you ask me 😡

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better and maybe you would get more people willing to work for you
