Valet (Current Employee) – Manorcare Palos West – April 14, 2017
Hardest part of the job is dealing with out of control customers. Even with learning that one must expect the unexpected, my work days were long but not filled with a bunch of stress. I always had full support of my upper management and coworkers. We all work hard and the culture was always about family first and getting the job done. I was known as the workaholic that would always do whatever is asked of them.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Summer Shade, KY – January 25, 2017
I recommend everyone's first job to be Five Star. Most people make it their careers they love it so much. I can't explain my experience. It was fun even on the bad days. The customers, the workers, the cleaning, the preparing food, even taking the trash out was a learning experience. Everyone needs to be part of a great experience like I had with my first job.
Laborer (Former Employee) – New Carlisle, IN – April 21, 2016
Sometimes your opinions and how you feel are not listened to!! Great pay but your basically a nobody to them! Training is done well as long as they have the right staff training you! Co-workers are ok sometimes I felt harassed by the men! Hardest part of job is being told last minute when you have to work 12 hours because the next person called off!
Buyer (Current Employee) – Newton, MA – February 5, 2016
If your looking for a place to start your career this company will work. They have great staff and you can learn a few things that will help as you move forward in your career. However, there is little employee development opportunity here, and the benefits are not that great. If your looking for a stepping stone to launch your career this is the place for you, but with limited growth potential and no place to move up don't think you will want to stay for the long haul. Leadership is also a problem as they run the company like a small mom and pop business with limited policies and procedures which leave you guessing on how to accomplish your responsibilities.
Lead Server (Supervisor/Management) (Former Employee) – Yonkers NY – August 25, 2015
Horrible. No care for Workers and residents. Has people working there without any restrictions on how they treat the lower staff in their department. All about the job, never care about the individual working there

Cashier, Customer Service, Train, Janitorial (Current Employee) – Frankfort, KY – April 23, 2015
Things have started to go sour there. Employees no longer caring, getting away with things they should not and even the managers not being any better. It is sad to say that a place I once loved working at has now become just one of those places where things just fall apart and do not work out. It was a good job while it lasted.
Crazy co workers, people not caring, not being listened to
Worked under two different Managment staff. I did not fell comfortable with new GM & Assistant GM.
Facilities Maintenance Manager (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – January 22, 2015
I do not recommend the position last held by me to any professional. Both the GM and Assistant GM are very irresponsible and will not give you a fair evaluation of work performed. They are on the last few months of their contract and are willing to sacrifice any one and anything at the cost of a possible extension or new contract award. The job is much more secure if you are below the department head position. The Vendors that you are and will be working with will also concur with what I stated above. A huge insecurity problem is present in both of the upper leadership roles. At many times you will feel the concern for their ego far outweighs the concern they have for their staff or the conditions their resources are working under…

Very fast paced, easy to learn, learn new information about the product we make, advancement opportunities.......lifetime career. My typical day consisted of scanning orders into computer system and shipping product out. We made corrugated sheets.
Licensed Practical Nurse New Surfside Nursing Home (Current Employee) – Queens, NY – April 10, 2014
worked with them for about a year, they were fine. Pretty much a typical agency, they place you, you work, they pay you. They found me a facility pretty quickly and the facility was decent. They compensation is great and they provide minimal health benefits which is hard to find with a nursing agency.
Laundry/Linen/Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – March 4, 2014
A typical day at work included housekeeping and doing laundry. Housekeeping involved cleaning the break room, a bathroom and mopping a hallway. Before washing, drying, and folding clothes, I had to go to the residents rooms to pick up their dirty clothes. Then I had to return the folded clothes to each appropriate resident. I also had to wash table clothes and linen. This job taught me how to interact with the elderly and to be patient. I would always finish tasks on time. I never had any problems with any of my co-workers. The hardest part was when one of the washing or drying machines would stop functioning. The most enjoyable part was when the residents would thank me and appreciate what i did for them.
