Amazing opportunity to work with such great people!
Exterior Maintenance (Former Employee), Westminster, MD – October 14, 2014
Pros: co-workers, management, residents.
Cons: i can't say there are any cons.
I learned a lot through working at Carroll Lutheran Village. The management and co-workers really reach out to ensure everyone is involved and helped as much as possible.Nothing was ever boring when it came to meeting and helping the residents who lived there. To me, the hardest part of the job was standing all day. But, the most enjoyably part was – more... the connections I've made that makes the work i did, seem like an act of kindness rather than a job. – less
staff LPN in a LTC (Former Employee), Westminster, MD. – January 9, 2014
Care of the elderly is a large business. Management is a major problem in this environment because cost effectiveness is often impacted by budget restrictions. I found this to be the major problem at CLV- care of the resident was secondary to cost of business. This disparity is a major problem in this environment, but will not be reformed any time soon. – more... While many of the employees wish to reform this inequity, it cannot be done in the present healthcare environment. I have since decided to go into another work environment after 24 years of practice. – less

Nurse (Former Employee), Westminster, MD – November 26, 2013
Cons: management, pay
Don't let this place fool you, it's nice and they can tell you everything you want to hear to get you in the door. Once there it's one of to things if your "liked"(brown nose) or just a follower an do what your told no matter if you know morally it's wrong your gonna do great. However if your the type of person who won't follow the pack this place isn't – more... for you they will find every an any reason to make your job miserable. Management is the problem an it starts all the way at the top of food chain almost so don't even bother so not a CHRISTIAN company!!!!!!! – less
The residents look to us for good meals and we really do deliver!
Cook/Supervisor (Current Employee), Westminster, MD – August 11, 2013
Pros: decent pay
Cons: but too hot right now.
I really like my co-workers there. I cook for 140 plus people each work day. The hardest part of working there right now is that the air conditioner where I serve the food at night is not not working at all. It hasn't worked at all this spring or summer. You feel drained at the end of your evening! I love seeing the residents so happy to come out to – more... dine for dinner each evening the best. – less
Pros: i met my husband while working together on the evening shift.
Cons: working weekends and holidays.
A typical day was bathing,turning and feeding Patients.I was able to use a lot of my CNA skills.The best part of the job was when I had enough time to sit and listen to the pt's life history.The RN"s and LPN's were always supportive of the CNA's.
This is a very confusing Christian organization. The only proof of the Christianity is their advertisemnts.
Unit Clerk (Current Employee), Westminster, MD – February 19, 2013
Pros: the residents and their families are exceptional... a joy to be around...
Cons: this facility seems to be nothing but smoke and mirrors...
There is no consistancy with this organization. If you are a part of the "in click" you never are held accountable for anything you may or may not do, however...if you are not a part of that "click", you could sneeze wrong and possible be disiplined for it. Nursing and aides alike do not follow several state rules and regulations; managment and superviors – more... alike are aware of this but depending on who you are, they do nothing about it. The sad part is the residents are the ones who pay in the end. In all the years I have been in the work force I have never seen a faclity ran in such a un-Christian way... – less
