Not a Good Company to work For
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Bath, NY – May 9, 2017
I worked as a housekeeper for Arnot in the past year. I was retired for a few years from a professional career at their major competitor and was looking for something to do a few days a week. The department was chronically understaffed. That appeared to be the case in other departments as well. While the housekeeping department staff got along well with each other, the other departments seemed to have a problem "playing well with others"...something we all learned in kindergarten. RNs looked down on LPNs, who looked down on CNAs, who did the same thing to the housekeepers. The manager I had was not very good at her job and made things harder than they needed to be. The turnover rate is higher than other places I've worked. My and my co-workers hours were kept just under full time so that benefits would not apply. One part time co-worker worked several weeks at full time hours and was told no full time position was available when she asked about it. I would not recommend Arnot to anybody as a place of employment.
I really liked getting to know the patients in the nursing home, and hoping I made a difference in their day.
