    I have been working at Holiday Retirement full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Pros of this position is it does have good compensation. They will start you off with a good base salary and good bonus structure. You need to negotiate for your salary base.

    Cons

    Bad management structure. They hire and fire. The upper management will micro-manage you to death. You work pretty much by yourself. Job security isn't there at all.

    Advice to Management

    My advice for management would be to stop micro managing your employees, and make the workplace more enjoyable and to stop changing the structure so much. Be up front with the changes that will take place.

    Upper management doesn't listen. When you are having problems with staff and go to your R D they tell you to go to employee relations.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your G M's.

    I worked at Holiday Retirement full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The residents the residents family the staff working with varying community groups

    Cons

    Upper management from regional up. They pretend to have a clue when they have none. Very few have no experience in the industry and they vomit sales catchphrases like we are used car salesmen

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with experience read and then follow your own mission statement. Pay people what they are worth. Treat your customers with the respect they have earned not simply numbers

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

    Pros

    Residents are very kind and most understand the hard work that goes on in the kitchen.

    Cons

    Have a time line that is very hard to complete. Every week they add more and more on your timeliness and expect it to get done. Being on a budget limits how much you can offer to the residents. The same mindless task can have you going mentally insane. No matter how over and beyond you go there is no room to rise up the latter in the company. And the no matter how good your bad of an employee you are, you will only get 22.5 cents a year for a raise.
    If there is a snow storm or nothing they try and get you to sleep over and not provide good accommodations for you. They will have a bunch of people sleep in a random room . the building it self is falling apart and they are so strict on there budget, they keep just patching problems inside of fixing it. Medical sucks and is expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Just necsuse you are management, don't look down on your employees just because they are a dishwasher food prep, server, and even housekeeper. You need to understand the budget that you have establish can not fed your residents good, healthy And proper food.

    Pros

    The residents! They are delightful! Holidays are a blast too! They are why we care & stay. Let us take care of them for the families that chose to put them here.

    Cons

    Disappointing & horrible new "management structure ". Co-managers are now hourly (pay cut in salary AND hours) not to mention no longer eligible for bonuses of any kind even though we still ha e to tour potential residents and support in In Touch.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the staff you already have onboard & trained. Managers are dropping like flies and the residents and staff are all confused.

    I have been working at Holiday Retirement (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    New program has a lot of possibility. It brings Holiday up to date with their management style/tier. Corporate can make or break it, let's give them a chance.

    Cons

    Chef's salaries seem the most likely to be affected. GM might get worked to death since they are the only salaried employee, as Holiday is not known to allow overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Do the right thing (by your employees).

    Pros

    Residents! Most are very sweet. Families of residents are great and very needy, wanting help and direction.

    Cons

    Corporation hires too many idiots. 1 out of 5 are complete idiots. Some of the regional managers (and regional maintenance) are glorified in their positions and are on some power trip. They treat flex managers like crap! So glad to get far away from this company!

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up on sales and focus on residents.
