Excellent Care staff
Business Office Coordinator (Current Employee), Spokane, WAOctober 1, 2014
Pros: resident care
Cons: management
I feel that the care staff is amazing and pays detailed attention to the residents and their needs. I believe that the management is the part of the company that has forgotten what they got into the business to do. Definitely the most rewarding job that I have held and the most passionate that I am about helping the senior community.

True experience
Resident Assistant (Current Employee), Lexington, NCOctober 1, 2014
Pros: communicating and getting to know people you dont know
Cons: there arent any
I have learned that caring for someone who is unable to care for themselves is an experience. Most people can walk and brush their hair and for those who cant gives you a chance to provide the necessary care they need.

Management needs some help
LPN (Current Employee), Hockessin, DESeptember 18, 2014
Pros: free food, and trips
Cons: hour have been cut
Management needs to focus on the most important things first.
A routine from beginning to end when nothing crazy happens. Coworkers get along and work as a team. Hardest part of the job is when there are miscommunications.

Rehabilitation Technician (Former Employee), The Villages, FLSeptember 11, 2014
Day started with getting therapist setup with patient's charts, then making sure the gym had all the supplies it needed. Next going around setting schedules up for patients to see Therapist for ADL.
I learned how to setup and maintain different types of equipment that would help patients do ADL.
Co-workers were great to work with, we were a team.
The – more... hardest part of this job was to convince patients to get up and live, and to go do therapy. Most hurt so badly.
Best part of this job was seeing patients finish their therapy and to be able to go home. – less

Server (Former Employee), Lisle, ILAugust 29, 2014
Pros: met many new people and made lots of friends
Cons: dining room could have had some improvements in the way it was run
A typical day at work would be to arrive for each shift on time and memorize the featured menu items of the day. As soon as the dining room doors open we were to immediately begin to care for our tables and start them out with their soups and salads as well as take their dinner orders and place them in the kitchen. In between tables we were to help – more... to clear and set up other tables for business. Near the end of the shift we were to serve desert and then begin to clean up and set up for the next shift as well as to complete any side work. – less

Waitress/Server (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, COAugust 22, 2014
Everyday I would start out by doing some quick assigned chores before the seating started along with setting tables for my section. Once my section was ready I would go to the hostess stand and call residents by name and seat my first table, take orders, put orders in and get drinks. Then over the night more and more people would be seated in my section – more... and I would wait on them as well. At the end of every shift I would bus all my tables, clean my section and do some quick chores. My coworkers were very funny and made work much more tolerable. The hardest part of my job would be when we were short on waiters because we would all have to take on there section as well as our own. My absolute favorite was all of the residents because they were so nice and patient. – less

Fast and challenging work place
Resident Aide/CNA (Former Employee), McMinnville, ORAugust 22, 2014
Pros: the residents
Cons: the management.
I did not really enjoy working for Brookdale because of the management. I never got assistance on swing shift. i learned that patience is a big thing in this field. The management was not well at all, it seemed like they did not really know what they were doing and a lot of bad stuff started to go on and happen. The co-workers were nice, some of them – more... were a bit lazy. The hardest part would be if i needed help but could not get any, i had to come up with a different solution. Especially when they were two person transfers. The best thing was seeing the residents everyday and their smile. – less
