PCA Personal Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Augusta, GA – July 10, 2017
The most I loved about that job is helping the senior citizens out . I loved seeing them smile as me being the great helper that I was . Dressing them and seeing them act as if they were in they old days is what I enjoyed the most and also talking to them about the good old days .

Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Raymore, MO – May 4, 2017
everyone that I work with at Benton house has never made me feel out of place, everyone there is very kind and the residents are just like family. Benton house really cares about their residents and it shows the moment you walk in the door.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Suwanee, GA – February 2, 2017
My first job in Ga. Received great Training. Had the most professional Male Resident Care Director (RCD) and Great Nurse and Staff. Trained in every field. Nice small community but very little room for advancement. Would recommend if you a new nurse looking for great training and wanting to work hard. RCD is the best.
I wish I read the reviews before I started working there. It's a very clicky place and if one don't like you they will all team up to get you out of there and management don't have their employees back no Matter what. They treat their residents poorly as well and it seems they only hire the same kind of employees. Very unprofessional!
NIce place to work but some things could be better.
Residents Assistant (Current Employee) – Dublin, GA – August 2, 2016
I work the 11-7 shift. My job is not hard at all. What I don't like is there is no room for advancement . I have some of the greatest co-workers and I love to work with them. A typical night at work consists of cleaning, making sure the residents needs are taken care of at all times. Management is NOT what it should be in my opinion. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I know that I can go to work and make a difference in someone's life. It's the little things that count to some of them. I've learned that you have to have patience when it comes to this type of work...if not it's not the place for you.
Foodserivce Director (Former Employee) – Bluffton, SC – May 21, 2016
I was Food Director for the company. Their labor allowance for 50 residents was limited to roughly 4 CNA'S to take care of all the residents and also had to double up as servers and house keepers. In the kitchen I was allowed only one cook for the night and I doubled as the manager and cook for the breakfast. During a 4 hour window I had to mingle with residents to make sure they were happy, place orders, manage inventory, manage my cook, review menus, and the list goes on. Meanwhile we had no dishwasher employee so we also had to take care of that as well.
My location had a poor Executive Director that did not want to help resolve any issues in departments. But overall the company COULD be good to work for if it allowed for slightly more labor in its facilities.
great hours for management, free meals, great co-workers
no time for lunch breaks, lack of upper management, lack of labor
Community Relations Director (Former Employee) – FL – May 14, 2016
Working with the elderly is a passion, and the company truly stands behind that. Sometimes politics in senior level management seems to play a huge part in the day to day operations, but otherwise, it is a great company to work for.
CNA/Caregiver (Former Employee) – Lees Summit, MO – January 5, 2016
Love the employer, co workers were easy going, and administration was leader worthy. Hardest part of job was the long hours, but u could basically work as much as you wanted. The optional training was nice as well.
Caregiver (Current Employee) – Stockbridge, GA – November 12, 2015
Not everyone works together as a team. The job requires you to do a lot of work but they are not willing to up the pay for all the work they except you to do. It's a great starter job to get your feet wet, until you find the job you really want to use the skills you were taught.
We all work together to make things happen, no matter what!
Food Service Director (Current Employee) – Prairie Village, KS – May 20, 2015
There are no typical days at work because of how many variables are present that could affect this, but I enjoy whatever is thrown my way. The hardest part is trying not to become to attached or involved in residents life and just be there as an aide. I have to refrain from giving my whole heart to be a better employee and manager. However I feel I give a special kind of care to the hospitality aspect of life at our community and have made many positive changes by just listening what residents want.
