Residents and most co-workers are great
Therapy (Former Employee), Apple ValleyJune 19, 2014
Pros: residents are wonderful
Cons: hours are dependent upon the daily census, expectations upon staff are to the point of being counterproductive.
This applies to Apple Valley Augustana.

This facility is understaffed and the workers have inordinate expectations to meet due to low occupancy and corporate losses.

Full time hourly workers for most departments is 35. Benefits have been cut too. Morale is low.

Administration has poor communication with staff - two or three all staff meetings per – more... year, no newsletter. The rare time met between staff and supervisor is for disciplinary reasons.

The residents are wonderful, they are the best part of the job. They do not receive the attention due them. They complain about not knowing which CNA will be taking care of them because the group assignments change daily. – less

Great company with great values
Accounts Payable Clerk Augustana Care Services (Former Employee), Minneapolis, MNAugust 13, 2013
Pros: great values, culture, etc.
Cons: no cons
A typical day at my job involved data entry of payment information for our vendors. I learned to use accounting software and lost of numerical skills. Management was always supportive. My co-workers were some of the best, because we all believed in the culture of the organization. The hardest part of my job was to learn to time manage. The most enjoyable – more... part of my job was knowing that my work benefited many clients. – less

Great place to work
Registered Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Minneapolis, MNMay 9, 2013
Pros: great work environment
Cons: leaving the wonderful residents
Augustana is a great place to work, a typical Day is full of challenges but; the rewards at the end of the Day make it all worth it. I had a good experience with management, they worked with my changing schedule and made my busy life fit into work. The people at work where wonderful to work with and the most enjoyable part are the residents and their – more... families. – less

Productive and fun place to work
Registered Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Minneapolis, MNMarch 7, 2013
Pros: team work
Cons: overtime
At Augustana you really feel like you are part of a team, I have learned leadership skills through Augustana and Team work building skills as well. The most enjoyable part of the job, is getting to know the residents on a personal level and having them looking forward to seeing you everyday.

I completely disagree with this review. I was a nurse at Augustana in Minneapolis (the transitional care unit) and it was a HORRIBLE place to work. I cannot speak for other units in the building, but I will for this one. The training was terrible, the workload was unbearable (and you got in trouble if you stayed late, but most people had no choice, including those who were seasoned nurses), the other nurses were snooty, and the employee turnover rate in that unit was so high that there was no one who permanently worked in that unit to even train me. Other employees who had been there for a while got out of there fast when I first started and moved to another facility, and I can see why. The clinical manager did nothing to help except bark at everyone else, but don't expect her to help if you're running behind. If you can help it, find somewhere else to work!
