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. 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.
