Pay/Benefits to Lure Associates
RMA/Senior RA (Former Employee) – Great Falls, VA – December 8, 2014
I began my very short career with Brightview Senior Living as a Registered Medication Aide in Wellspring Village (their memory care neighborhood). When I first started working at this community, I loved my work, the resident's, and my co-workers. Very quickly, though, I began learning that one of the managers began targeting certain Associates. Every week (literally), we lost at least one co-worker and a new Associate would begin that very day (every time).
While the community was beautiful, the pay and the benefits are wonderful (and hard to come by), and (most of) the residents were fantastic, I can honestly say that my short time at the community was more stress, frustration, and anger than it was worth. I worked no less than 100 hours per pay period and was so stressed out that it began affecting my home life. So I resigned, although I knew I was about to be terminated because I confronted the manager who was targeting Associates and "letting them go."
Great co-workers, beautiful and new community, fantastic residents, wonderful pay and benefits
Short staffed, overworked Associates, very poor management
