STNA/Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Hilliard, OH and Canal Winchester – September 18, 2017
All around Altercare in Hilliard and in Canal Winchester were horrible places to work there was no staff always had agency in there staff is not helpful at all, management was slow and unreliable when it came to being helpfull in any way. They were very low key racist to there staff if they were anything but white. they didn't care about have 40 residents to and 2 aides and 1 nurse on a unit I highly recommend not applying here especially if your a new STNA after being there for 5 years I now this place well and it's nothing but stress and burn out all day long.
They are very good at promoting from within. They hire nursing students as STNA's and once you pass your boards they promote you to nurse. The hours are very long and inconsistent . You are often called to come in because of call-offs
Interviewee (Former Employee) – Hilliard, OH – August 14, 2017
This was one of the few interviews I walked out on. They did not do their research on me. It was clear they did not value my time, I watched for a bit as I always arrive for every interview to observe workers and interactions. The place was clean and "showed well" but it was quickly apparent that the organization valued the thin "veneer"attempting to cover up underlying issues. Be careful here. Do your research and watch those red flags. Requesting paper work in duplicity...on line and on paper? Skill assessments test? Weird policies without explanation. Not reviewing ones resume? Spelling your name wrong (then dismissing it like it was your fault)? All signs they are just milling paper and data, not looking for quality employees.
Clean facility appearance
They aren't investing in any employee. Applicants are treated as temp chair fillers.
This company is not a good one to work for. They expect double the amount of work that one person could possibly do. Raises hardly happen. They expect you to work shortstaffed and get the same stuff done . Extremely high turnover in every department. They have more bosses than staff. They like to tell you that you are uneducated and they won't give you that much money when you ask for a raise if you do not have a degree .
They have a nice company picnic every year
High turnover, Low pay, no respect for "uneducated" staff
STNA (Former Employee) – Country Lawn Rehabilitation and Nursing – June 8, 2017
I was an STNA here. I was put in very unsafe working conditions and treated like I was less then a person. I saw what the elderly were treated like here. There were many uncaring staff. Ohio and OSHA standards were not followed in many ways. I suggest not working here. I know the HR that quit from Altercare. The corporation itself does not care about the people in "the system" just the profits. The HR also confirmed this. He contacted the Corporation regarding concerns about management.
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Cuyahoga Falls, OH – June 7, 2017
Recent turnovers in management have rendered this place useless. The facility located in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio is horrible. The place is understaffed and the employees are over worked, and it certainly leads to the patients being neglected as far as care goes.
Job security if you do not care about being in a dysfunctional invironment.
Severely understaffed; 12 hour shifts with no time to take a break.
