    I have been working at National Church Residences part-time

    Pros

    I love working in life enrichment! My job is rewarding and fun, my manager is an absolute gem, and my coworkers are pleasant to work with. It's a fairly low stress job but it is busy - you will keep the residents very active throughout the day through leading exercise groups, parties, arts and crafts, bingo, pokeno, etc. Salaries are good as are benefits and there are numerous social opportunities for staff - we have staff get-togethers at the holidays, bake sales, and we go to the Alzheimer's walk every year. I'm very proud to work there!

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of anything bad about working there - my experiences there have been exceptionally positive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping the residents' care and well-being your focus and you won't go wrong.

    I have been working at National Church Residences full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    National Church Residences is focused on serving seniors better. Leadership has spearheaded an impressive number of corporate wide raises for front line staff the past few years. Competitive pay and benefits for the industry, with the bonus of being able to work at a mission oriented company. They have an impressive "Mission Day" and "National Conference" to acknowledge employees and focus all employees on the importance of positively transforming the lives of seniors. Leadership is encouraging, motivated and constantly looking to move forward with new ideas.

    Cons

    A great place to work and improve the lives of seniors.

    I worked at National Church Residences full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good aides always smiling and willing to help therapists with their patients.

    Cons

    Unethical demands, working off the clock expected under the guise of religeous charity. Upper level management is of lower educational qualifications than the people they manage. The lack of skill and knowledge of management is detrimental to the healing of patients. The only "church" they worship is $$$$$.

    Advice to Management

    There is a GOD watching you.

    Pros

    Good place to work. Flexible working environment. Friendly staff and management. People there are very supportive especially in the headquarters.

    Cons

    There is no cafeteria at central office in 2016. Probably because of the nature of the business as many go for field work and site visits to other places and branch thereby not too many persistent patronage can be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. It has strong management team especially when Mark Ricketts got in the position as CEO.

    Great company that truly cares about the mission to enhance the quality of life for the people we serve. Great benefits and competitive pay, and quality and competent management!

    Cons

    Always changing but this is more due to HUD and government issues, the company just has to adhere to these types of changes.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, the administrator really cares about his employees. Good pay for an aide.

    Cons

    They keep things hush hush until after you get hired and then bomb you with bad news.

    Advice to Management

    Tell your new employees what is happening before they find out through the grape vine.

    I worked at National Church Residences full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have no good things.

    Cons

    You are just a body to them. Not a person. Who you are, what you are experiencing doesnt matter. A board president died and no flowers were even sent! A mission statement is written words, . means nothing if they don't follow it. I used to believe in the company, but over time it all just becomes politics and you will be another forgotten face.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that anyone you place in "Regional" status or higher knows what its like to work the office before putting them in a higher chair making demands. Remember to treat people as people, not just a body. And ket them know the good things they do, not just what they do wrong.
