Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Centralia, WA – April 20, 2017
worrying about losing my job daily due to sticker warnings of patients known to file complaints against staff for inappropriate contact that never exists, really puts you on edge. I worked 16 hour shifts with the most amazing people i ever met, the residents however made bearing the job harder and harder making false statements daily and sticker notifications on doors to warn caregivers of this to take caution. also always being short of supplies taught me how to change diapers with out having access to them.
experience, customer relations
inappropriate residents, stress of losing job constantly, no supplies on regular basis
SKILLED NURSING HOME ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee) – Fond du Lac, WI – February 6, 2017
Was a typical SNF Administrator position. Many hours required and many rewards from the lives you are able to touch. Hardest part of the job was meeting budget with the Union contract and low reimbursement from the public funding of the majority of the customers. The building was older than the others in the area. We had to sell the care versus the look of the building.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 14, 2016
Worst company to work for. They don't care about the residents. All they care about is saving money. Always short staffed and not enough supplies to care for the resident. I would even let my family member or worst enemy go live there.
This place isn't for anyone. You have to have an iron will to get through the day, the coworkers, and the hours. If you like stress, awkward conversations, gossip, drama, and never sleeping, this job is for you.
ACCOUNTING ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – April 22, 2016
I always had projects on top of my regular work, that allowed me to help out the department as a whole not just my job. I would get incoming checks everyday and would split the money into accounts for our company but also those we gave some money back to.
having a boss that decides my fate in another department that I only saw once a year

Director of Nursing (Former Employee) – Waterville, OH – March 17, 2016
Overseeing nursing services for long term care is a 24/7 position. I learned that it is necessary to have meetings with Unit managers in the morning for going over resident needs and a meeting at the end of the day to ensure that these needs were meet.
Management was supportive and helpful with daily meetings and assistance with what was needed from Corporate. The workers were nice and helpful. The hardest part of my job was the scheduling, but not impossible. The most enjoyable was the residents.
RCM (Former Employee) – The Gardens On Unviersity – October 12, 2015
I was flattered to be asked to leave Maxim and have them buy my contract to join the Extendicare team. I was again flattered to be promoted to RCM from floor nurse. The turnover of DONs and Administrators was constant.
Independent Contractor (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 12, 2015
Low morale, poor management, increased workload with staff cuts. Previously used to maintain positive culture with company events and outings but now it's a workhorse effort with little benefit and low pay/raise freezes.
