Meh
CNA (Former Employee) –  Wilkesboro, NCApril 19, 2017
Job wasn't too great. They were unwilling to hire more employees and the workload just continued to get heavier because more people left due to lack of employee help. They cared more about money than the well-being of their patients. I couldn't leave because I was trapped in a contract. Only thing keeping me from one-starring it is the pay was the highest in the county.
Pros
The pay
Cons
Literally everything else

Dementia and Alzheimer's everywhere, I loved the patients but was not fond of the resources we had to be able to take care of them. Understaffed and needs help badly.

happy place to work that can get interesting
Housekeeper/CNA (Former Employee) –  Saint Cloud, FLMarch 27, 2017
My favorite thing about being a housekeeper is chatting to residents, making them laugh and doing the little things that make a difference to their lives. the hardest was trying not to get too attached to the residents

The residents are sweet, but the people who run it...
CNA/Admissions Director (Current Employee) –  Ocala, FLJanuary 10, 2017
Lets just say most days working here you'll want to run out of the building crying. Unfair, understaffed, no one cares about you or how many hours you work, just as long as you get your work done. You work a 16 hour shift, and they'll ask you to do it again the next day. I would't recommend working here, or sending loved ones here.
Pros
The activities for the residents are awesome

don't work here
LPN (Current Employee) –  Inverness, FLNovember 11, 2016
Management plays manipulative games and its impossible to get your job done because of the expectations and lack of supplies. The administration creates an environment of us and them. You can't ask for help, and only receive criticism not support. The DON likes to write up people for ridiculous things and shows favoritism. Go somewhere else and stay away from this place.
Pros
they have vending machines
Cons
they will use you up and throw you away

Decent place
LPN (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLMay 30, 2016
The workload is a lot. They have great nurses that are very helpful when you need assistance and that work together at least the ones that are full time.There are things that need to be worked on but its really not horrible. The main focus should be paying the employees more money because of the workload and you would be able to hire better employees who actually want to work here.
Pros
Good people to work with and very helpful
Cons
corporate reaches out to staffing agency before giving Overtime to inhouse personnel

Average office enviroment
Help Desk Technician (Current Employee) –  Hollywood, FLFebruary 5, 2016
High workload little reward is the overall motto

Minimal team lunches/activities

Poor management of projects/roll outs

Poor management structure

Overlapping end goals which leads to poor end results and customer perception.

No bonuses, Minimal if any pay increases (very very small percentages),

Very little room for growth.

Low budget operations with high expenses and needs

Large number of user and device base to support with very small teams and resources to do so.
Pros
Some great people with great intentions

Which facility you work in can make a huge difference to your job satisfaction. The good days are good, but the bad days can be stressful.

I enjoyed working with the people
Assistant (Former Employee) –  Wilkesboro, NCNovember 23, 2015
I enjoyed working with most of my co-workers and loved seeing the patients also and greeting and talking with them. Management was not perfect but was ok. Hardest part was tasks making me very tired, very easy but exhaustive work. Most enjoyable was seeing the smiles on patients faces and helping make their day more bearable.
Pros
Enjoy working with people
Cons
Very exhausting work

Great working environment
LEAD CERTIFIED NURESES ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  1301 Kansas ave St. Cloud fl 34769October 25, 2015
Caring for the residents and making sure that all their needs were being met.I had a great experience working at Avante Nursing home. The management team was always striving to cross train anyone who was will to advance their education.We had a great group of certified Nurses assistants that worked as team.The hardest part of the job was when the resident completed their rehabilitation and was ready to go home. There is no greater reward then seeing that individual make a complete turn around in their recovery.
Pros
Learning on the job
Cons
none

Do NOT
CNA (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville Beach, FloridaSeptember 25, 2015
I will keep this simple and sweet... There is a reason why they offer you contract bonuses. And that's because they can't keep any of the CNA's to stay due to a bad environment! I walked out and don't regret it. The CEO is really trying to turn the place around and I admire that, but it's going to take a lot of work. Everyone who works there looks miserable and the residents can sense it. It's so sad.
Pros
The residents
Cons
Nurses are bullies, low supplies, Co-workers who don't care, old building, dirty

Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Waynesboro, VAJuly 27, 2015
The most enjoyable part of this job has been working with the residents. A lot of great staff members! The hardest part of the job is not being able to spend adequate time with the resident.

slow environment, lots of down time, always the same routine
DINING SERVICES ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Waynesboro, VAJune 22, 2015
there wasn't really anything i liked about this job. management was never around when needed, people called out all the time, nurses were rude and demanding and unappreciative. meals never varied....basically the same meal each day.most enjoyable part was seeing the elderly with a smile on their face to just have someone to talk to!!

CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Wilson, NCSeptember 23, 2014
The patients out there were great, but the co-workers didn't believe in team work. It was plenty of things to do that required 2 people, but when you need help others seemed to vanish and are nowhere in site.
