    I worked at Pacific Retirement Services part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The amenities of the facility where available to employeess which was nice, parking was made available on a fist come first serve basis, the biggest perk was being able to receive a free monthly trimet pass

    Cons

    The training that was provided via the online charting game system was very slow, the technology was insufficient in comparison to the Prestige of the building.

    I worked at Pacific Retirement Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being a server was tiring, but was a good experience as my first job. Everyone carried their weight which was nice, too.

    Cons

    The over seer was kind of like a dictator watching over all of us, the only time we were allowed to sit during our full shifts was during our breaks, not even during transition after everything is set up in advance and the restaurant is closed.

    Advice to Management

    I know it is a retirement community but if you have servers working in a semi-formal community, it would be nice if you allowed them to get tips.

    I worked at Pacific Retirement Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    An amazing department manager who worked with everyone in the department to meet our needs. Some fun residents that I got to interact with regularly. Clear training and organized structures in place. Great coworkers, even if we rarely saw each other.

    Cons

    Not competitive wages. Management in other departments was awful to work with. Some residents were very entitled about their demands and hard to deal with on a regular basis. All over the place schedule and called in a lot to cover at odd hours.

    I have been working at Pacific Retirement Services full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful location, close to the hills of Saratoga. Non-Profit Saratoga Retirement community owned by the Odd fellows.

    Cons

    Bedbugs at Saratoga retirement community, on going issue. Management offers little or no training to new staff. Team doesn't feel supported. Pay less than most comparable RCFE and older adult care facilities in the bay area. High clinical acuity (need), and staff not trained to care for this population. Disconnect between management and staff.
