Resident services director (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – September 22, 2016
I have learned a lot while working at this company and have had opportunities to travel and assist at sister communities in and out of the state of Texas. I have had the opportunity to train onboarding nurses and also the opportunity to help troubleshoot problems in communities.
My day was very productive and helping the residents
Server (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – October 18, 2016
My typical day at work I would serve the residents lunch and I would take there order and after they were done I would clean up after and reset there tables I then I would clean up the kitchen sweep and keep the dinning room clean fold napkins stock the country kitchen with snacks drinks and ice then I would get dinner ready prepared the salad bar and cut the dessert and fill up ice water and hot water and coffee and I got a lot very well with the staff and I got along very well with residents as well
After a while, I disliked having to go to work. Knowing and witnessing the truth behind the company. Resident's that needed more care were in the wrong part of the facility or did not belong there at all. Not just resident's but employees too were also being mistreated and dismissed. Favoritism and laziness were big uses for me. The company is about the money and that is it.
Director (Current Employee) – Albany, NY – September 21, 2016
As someone who works well under pressure and deadlines - Atria is a wonderful place to have a career. It takes extreme dedication and hard work to be an Atria manager. The expectations are extremely high, there isn't a lot of room for excuses of why something wasn't done and the hours are long. If you can handle those stipulations and not grumble, you will be okay and do well in your role. If that does not appeal to you, under no circumstance will you succeed at Atria.
The residents and team members become family because let's face it - we spend a lot of time there! We do our best to foster a welcoming environment.
I will always "go to bat" for Atria. It's somewhere that high performers can do well if they can roll with the punches of a for profit corporation.
Certified Medication Technician/CNA (Current Employee) – Phoenixville, PA – September 10, 2016
Poor management EXTREMELY HIGH TURNOVER RATE!!!! Low wages, no appreciation for hard work done, no support or back up from management, some people in mgmt make no effort to even learn your name so during tours your referred to by the color of your shirt.....mgmt has no medical background so they have no clue what you go through day by day trying to get things done. But due to literally having no staff they throw on the phony fake were a team attitude and shirt, with a let me get through it, to make it look good and get out of here attitude. Staff has lost motivation, confidence, and tolerance. Not enough staff to care for the residents. Residents there are all not appropriate. Some like me feel retaliation for going per diem after being FT making work uncomfortable at times.
Wait Staff (Former Employee) – Portsmouth, RI – August 23, 2016
This job did not come without its challenges but is overall very rewarding in the long run. Most of the residents are extremely caring and are interested in your personal life. Overall the management does its best to accomodate you and recognized hard work. As a first job this place has taught me a lot.
Medication Aide (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – August 22, 2016
I learned so much about different medications, I learned how to communicate with the doctors. I love working with elderly. They make our job more fun and enjoyable. My employers are great and very knowledgeable about our work.
Waitress (Current Employee) – Lantana, FL – August 1, 2016

Elder Caregiver (Former Employee) – Newburyport, MA – July 26, 2016
I was a private caregiver for an elderly woman with whom I cared for at the beginning at her home, along with her husband. Her husband had passed and she was placed in the care of Atria along with myself caring for her while she was there.
Interacting with the patients and making them laugh
there were never any cookies left when i would get there
CMA (Former Employee) – Topeka, KS – July 21, 2016
its ok they can have better management and better staff I really whish they would take the time out and address some of the concern with that place and what actually goes on in there sometime I wonder is has worst the residents or staff
CMT/CNA (Former Employee) – East Greenwich, RI – July 16, 2016
is not a bad work place, but they have to work more in management and coworkers. there is not respect or privacy regarding the staff nad some of the residents. if atria put an effort on hiring the right peopple and not just taking in whoever this place would be the perfect place to work.
Wait Staff/Cook (Current Employee) – Great Neck, NY – July 15, 2016
I cannot believe there is an employer out there like this. It is a positive, encouraging environment. There is a balance between a friendly environment and having respect for management. Opportunity for growth, long term career. Although the pay could be a lot better.
Resident Service Coordinator (Former Employee) – Spring Hill, FL – June 22, 2016
I employed with Atria in June of 2011. By far one of the best companies I worked for. I was promoted to Resident Service Coordinator ( Admissions), and worked under the director. The company does a lot for their employees. I worked in a very fast pace office and I loved it. All of the employees are very friendly, and work as a team.
Certified Nurse Aide / Certified Med Tech (Current Employee) – Phoenixville, PA 19460 – June 21, 2016
I enjoyed most of my time at this employer. I still plan to keep myself on as a per diem employee. Unfortunately there have been several changes in recent management and there has been a total lack of accountability towards certain staff members. I have had some personal issues as a result of my departure as a full time employee.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Walnut Creek, CA – June 18, 2016
I've been at Atria for one year , at first it was great ! Until management came and went like a revolving door! Management don't care about anything but the money! Care staff are overlooked , disrespected and worked like slaves ! Too much work not enough pay ! The company sales families unrealistic expectations leaving employees looked down on and put in awkward situations. Executive directors have favorites ! Not worth you time or energy !
Wait Staff (Current Employee) – Andover, MA – June 8, 2016
Over all my past jobs have been pretty easy. I learn pretty fast and I can adjust to situations quickly. I loved every single one of them and I am looking forward to expanding and applying my skills in new work areas. I am easy to get along with. I like getting along with coworkers.
free lunches have always been a pro
management at some of my jobs hasn't been as good as it should be.
