Watching the residents play bowling on the wii
Lead Housekeeper (Current Employee), Leawood, KSMarch 27, 2014
Pros: i enjoy the residents and their family members. all the wonderful stories i have heard
Cons: lossing residents that have brought much joy to put of my life
I start my work day by talking with some of the residents that sit in the lobby drinking coffee and reading their newspaper. I have seven apartments to clean. Dust furniture in hallways. clean and shine up elevators. on some days I have to detail clean apartment for a move-in. I get along with my co-workers. The hardest part of my job is when one of – more... the residents passes away that's makes my day hard. Getting to know the residents their stories and what makes them smile. – less

HORRIBLE place to work
RN (Current Employee), Rhode IslandMarch 17, 2014
Pros: the residents were nice
Cons: everything
Communication was horrible, getting anyone to do their job was very difficult, management sucked and never did what they were suppose to. There is a ton of drama and people lie to try and make you look bad. No one worked together as a "team" and everyone was always complaining about the little bit of work they did have to do.

Kitchen Prep (Former Employee), Irvine, CAMarch 4, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: short breaks
A TYPICAL DAY WOULD BE WHEN WERE RUNNING SHORT ON EMPLOYEES WE HAVE MORE WORK TO DO. I LEARNED HOW TO BE A CERTIFIED DISHWASHER, PREP AND COOK. MANAGMENT AT WORK NEEDS A LITTLE MORE PERFECTION. THE HARDEST PART OF MY JOB IS WHEN I HAVE PLENTY OF ORDERS TO SERVE. THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART OF THE JOB IS AFTER WORK WHEN WE GET TO EAT OUR DELICIOUS MEAL.

Decent care for seniors
Dinning Server (Former Employee), Lisle, ILMarch 3, 2014
It can be very busy, but the main focus is the residents. I've been there a few years, and honestly I can say I've gained a lot of experience from the two positions I've had in this company.

Horrible place to work
Server/ host (Current Employee), Austin, TXMarch 2, 2014
Pros: free food, lovely residents
Cons: work through 9 hour shifts often, short staffed, low pay
I work as a server. Most people won't stay because the amount of work you do, is way more than you get payed. At the property I am at, it pays eight an hour. I have been there for over three years and have not even gotten reached 8.50, with a raise every new year. We do get bonuses, which is nice. They come from the residents though and that's not fair. – more... They are always short, constant people quitting because of the pay. I love the residents though. It's a great place to start and learn how to serve. Also they take advantage that you are a good worker. If you're a good worker, you will get more work while the worker who is not as good gets payed the same while they do minimal work. – less

Steady flow with good employee / resident relations
Cook (Former Employee), Boulder, COFebruary 20, 2014
Pros: low cost lunches
Cons: always a rush to get things done.
Typical day at work would be to go in and prep for all aspects of the lunch set-up. And then start cooking for the dinner setting,always with the thought of keeping lunch serving in a timely manner and preparing all things to order.The hardest part of this job is there are way to many people telling you what to do and when to do it,even if you know – more... what has to be accomplished.The most enjoyable part of this job was the relationships you gain with the staff and the residents. – less

Pros: free meals when you are at work

Going to work wasn't like going to work...it was like going to visit 100 grandparents and helping them out for a few hours! My co-workers there were awesome. The hardest part of my job was losing people , but I've learned to cope with it!

A good place to work but you will know you are working for a major company. The resident's best interest does not always come first, if ever.

Worst Place in The Us To Work For.
Ex Manager (Former Employee), Clarebridge PerintonFebruary 4, 2014
Cons: too many to name.
I worked as a manager for this company, and stepped down from the position. In a Meeting one of the managers stated (Let's take the Residents pet cat down to the Chinese restaurant and cook it.) This was said in the presence of two of our Asian employees, and also the director who did nothing to stop this behavior. The employees are over worked, Under – more... paid, Stressed out, and burned out. The management team with the exception of one is a joke ,The director is a total air head, and the foodservice manager is a buffoon. – less
