Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Monroe, MIDecember 1, 2014
I loved working here, management was easy to get along with, had enough help. I learned alot of information working here. You are a nurse aide, house cleaner, and medication passer. The pay wasnt as good, but it was a great place to work.

Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee), DenverNovember 26, 2014
Pros: experience

Enjoyed the friendliness of the co-workers and getting to know new patients as well as build rapport with current patients. Environment can be fast paced at times, co-workers worked together as a family as well as a team.

Terrible Scheduling low pay
Cook (Former Employee), OHNovember 23, 2014
Pros: free food
Cons: short breaks, 13 hour days
One person is expected to cook for 400+ people breakfast and lunch and prepare all soups for the day. Over demanding lack of pay. Benefit book is thick but the pay is so low one cant afford much more than the health benefits.

Good place to work if you enjoy being a server
Server (Former Employee), Overland Park, KSNovember 16, 2014
Typical day included serving numerous residents lunch and dinner. I learned how to function in a fast paced environment and getting along with teammates to work together. Management was pretty organized. Hardest part was if you got behind as a server trying to play catch up with as many residents as there are. Best part of the job was the food. It was – more... really tasty. – less

It's the WORST place to work
Resident Programs Coordinator (Former Employee), Port Charlotte, FLNovember 6, 2014
Pros: the residents are wonderful people to serve
Cons: beware, wolves in sheep's clothing!!, no breaks, no praises, low pay
I had absolutely no support in my position from the Executive Director to enrich the lives of the Residents at this community. One of the companies cornerstones is "Put the Residents First and the Bottom line will take care of itself" The Residents are far from being this companies main priority. They are only concerned with having reports look good, – more... staying within budget, and getting their BIG bonuses. They have no concern for the care of the residents or their line staff. If you are not a SUCK UP to management they will find a way to make your life miserable. If you are a Puppet......this will be your ideal job! – less

Productive workplace
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), West Palm Beach, FLNovember 3, 2014
Pros: hours per week fluxuation
Cons: inconsistent communication
The most enjoyable aspect about wrking for Brookdale are the residents that I take care of and meet occasionally. I sit and chat with them more than the staff. Everyone usually keeps to themselves at my facility, therefore I only enjoy my residents.

Great caregivers but poor management
LPN Supervisor (Former Employee), Troy, MIOctober 31, 2014
Pros: great caregivers, free food.
Cons: management, hours, compensation, .
Low pay, long hours, no recognition for all that you do. The residents are the only reason I stayed so long. The ED and HWD cannot be trusted and lack basic management skills. They will throw you under the bus to save themselves. CNN recently aired a segment on Brookdale stating a survey lists Brookdale as top 5th worst company to work for. It's absolutely – more... true. The ED is terrible. She talks negatively about families that give her a paycheck. They do not care about you. You are replaceable is how they make you feel. – less
