They don't practice what they preach
Clinical Administrative Specialist (Former Employee), Sykesville, MDMarch 1, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: few breaks if any unreasonable expectations communication is seriously lacking
I mistakenly believed that if I shared concerns and and issues with managment and administrators that they would be addresed. Unfortunately this was not the case, I witnessed and documented some serious incidents and shared this with management and administration, but after doing so, I was placed under close scrutiny and criticized daily on my job performance. – more... Including being told that
my performnce could lead to termination. The issues I shared with them were essentialy ignored and not acknowledged.
What was really pathetic about the whole situation was I was told "I care too much" Well isn't that a kick in the head?! Fairhaven is a healthcare facilitity.Resident care and the residents right to dignity are listed as core values?
Hmmm...I guess they filled their quota on caring and responsible employees. I was one too many? Let's see if you can understand their evalaution and fair treatment of employees who CARE, SHOW UP, DO THEIR JOB, AND STAY LATE TO FINISH WORK, FOLLOW WORK PLACE POLICIES (NOT USING CELL PHONE OR WORK COMPUTERS FOR PERSONAL USE) SHOWING AN ACTUAL CONCERN FOR RESIDENTS AND STAFF
NOT SLEEPING ON THE JOB OR HIDING FROM WORK ASSIGNMENTS. MAKING SELF AVAILABLE FOR WORK MEETINGS ON DAYS OFF ASSIST IN COVERING SHIFTS.
They fire them. Yep can't have those types of employees around !! God knows it is bad for morale and cultivating a culture of community!

Disappointed and let down beyond words...I would strongly recommend perspective employees and anyone thinking of admitting their family member to interview the staff and management before applying for any position with Fairhaven, EMA It's not all sunshine and roses like they are trying to sell in their heartwarming commercials. – less

GNA (Former Employee), Sykesville MDFebruary 1, 2014
Pros: the pay
Cons: everything else
These 'people' show favourtism to 'certain' people. They resorted me out of the building bc a nurse told them that I was sleeping on the job and other terrible accusations when I wasnt even at the job! They had proof that I didnt even work those days and as I sat there crying to them, all they can say is "sorry. we dont really care..." I was only the – more... job for 1 week....who gets fired on their orientation?

The workers told me to "be careful" because they are out to get certain people. They do pay well however, very well. But you have to watch yourself. You cant even use the bathroom without them reporting you. – less

Senior Support Worker (Current Employee), Bognor RegisAugust 23, 2012
Pros: free meals
Cons: long hours
I have learned so many things working in Fairhaven as they help the employee to achieve their goals and attended relevant trainings. Management are very supportive and we have a good teamwork. The hardest part of the job is to deal and manage the service users on a daily basis and to meet their needs. The most enjoyable part of the job is we are not – more... coming to work as a staff but as a whole like a family willing to help each other for our service user's needs. – less
