Cherrelyn is getting better but still needs to come a long way
Receptionist (Current Employee) – Littleton, CO – May 28, 2013
Cherrelyn was not the greatest place to work. There used to be a lot of tension in the air that was picked up by the visitors, residents and employees. This was caused by the way the former Administrator ran things. He did not make it a place that you felt good about coming to work. That has changed with the new Administrator. Everybody seems to me more relaxed in their jobs and don't feel like they have to look over their shoulders every minute. A typical day at work for me is answering phones and greeting guests and vendors. Also includes computer work and assisting other departments. The best part of my job is the residents! I love them! I learn a lot from them! My co-workers are great. We work well together and are always willing to help each other. We are close as co-workers and friends. The problem with this company is that there really is no room for advancement and the pay. Receiving an increase in pay is not possible even for the nursing staff which is lower than majority of other places in the industry. Benefits are too expensive! Medical, Dental, Hearing....Horrible. I have been there a long time and even now cant even afford the benefits they offer. I have to say that the worst part of my job is when we lose a resident. Always makes me sad.
The residents. I love them! I learn alot from them and I love helping them
