Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Midlothian, VA – August 18, 2016
I never work at a place with so much going on! Understaff at all times poor management and low pay! It's like modern time slavery and management is very disrespectful to employees!!! It's More like two stars instead of 5 Star Quality Care Low Pay for High level of care

Accountant (Former Employee) – Newton – July 23, 2016
Good experience but poor management, you don't have a voice here if you're not on the favorite. Not respect to the staff. work overloaded and under paid, poor benefits, poor communication, poor managers, micromanaged...please run...
Food Service Director (Current Employee) – Alabama – February 25, 2016
This is one of the worst companies I have ever worked for. Extremely high turnover. Upper management could care less about lower management, employees and resident concerns. Lower management is expected to work long hours so that hourly staff don't have overtime. Salaried lower management is paid much less than the average rate. They give you a director title but you're not allowed to make any decisions. They are short staffed in every department.
RN Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Grand Junction, CO – February 12, 2016
Good coworkers and open management. As long as you did your job all went well. As in any health care field at times short staffed. Teamwork environment. Patients of all levels and personalities. The con is the amount of time spent with the residents in the dining room at meal times. The pros - the relationships with residents and staff alike. A clean facility. Good nurses and some of the best CNAS .

Pta, former (Former Employee) – Florida – January 27, 2016
Unless you're desperate, find another company to work for especially in Florida. The management is horrible, the regional directors have no clue of what's going on with the buildings and are constantly threatening employees with job security.
You got a job
Everyone is expendable, treated with no respect, expected to travel without notice, no job security, threats, no rehemburstments for continuing education, almost impossible to use any accumulated pto.
Medication Technician (Current Employee) – Georgia – March 10, 2016
Corporate needs to be more aware of their management team. It's not just about numbers. The management team tell lies to get new residents. Management are rarely accessible to the residents and never help. Feel for the residents
DIETARY AIDE (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – February 27, 2016
I enjoyed everything about working here, I love the residence as if they were my family. It made my day to know that i was making their day. Every morning I worked they let me know that I made their day by saying good morning to them and always remaining a smile.
Certified Medication Aide (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 9, 2015
To come prepared, day to day operations can change in a blink of an eye so, you have to adjust, call in, sudden illness, or just poor teamwork and turn a good day sour and vice versa. I lean towards being a helper bee, if all parties stick together, it'll be a better outcome. I learned complaining doesn't get the job done, provide a solution to the problem and fix it. Management is great! Co-workers were amazing give or take a few. The hardest part of this job was leaving. I enjoyed the residents and the Christmas bonus.
Manager (Current Employee) – Georgia – January 30, 2016
Always watch your back. Never place too much trust with another employee. Working with senior living is amazing. Do yourself a favor and work at a higher end community instead of a property owned by 5 Star.
Working with seniors
If 5 Star messes up, that's fine; if you mess up, you're gone.
