    I have been working at Holiday Retirement full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Holiday has come a long way from when I first joined them in 2013. Very innovative thinking and constantly evolving to best support our residents and their families. Learning and Development is top notch. Great company with many opportunities.

    Cons

    During this time of COVID 19 there is a lot of leading from afar - tough in the sales arena, but keeping our residents and associates safe.

    I have been working at Holiday Retirement full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This job is like coming to help family. I have the best job in the world! I get to come in and talk to and help out 30 brothers and 65 sisters. I'll admit I was apprehensive at first, but this is nothing like any other job I've had. The residents are great and the company is very supportive. Great Place To Work isn't just a slogan, it's a fact.

    Cons

    It's very sad when someone has to move on to higher level care or beyond.
