Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Sunset Hills, MO – February 11, 2017
Most directors strongly believe in passing the buck and refusing to accept responsibility or roll up their sleeves and help when staff is overwhelmed. There is an abundance of wasteful spending and no one reigning in the waste. On the positive, the worker bees who work there are terrific. It is just discouraging that employees are rarely promoted from within or acknowledged for hard work.
managers not qualified to lead their departments, decisions made without input from affected staff
outdoors and always had something to start or finish

Dietary Aide and Hostess (Former Employee) – Waterloo, IA – August 25, 2016
They have great residents. I did food prep everyday, served the residents their food and cleaned up the dining room and the dining room tables after. I also made sure everything went accordingly. The co-workers were easy to work with and the manager was very stern but fair.
Building interpersonal skills.
No room for career advancement within that department.
Dietary Aid (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI – January 17, 2017
Typical day is come in prepare food, set up tables, then bring in food. After the food is ready and set up to be severed, you wait for orders to be taken. Once the orders have been taken you prepare the food and the server takes them to the residents.
Unit Manager (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – July 21, 2016
Very difficult to manage such lazy staff. I felt horrible for the lack of cares the residents received. I was hired to manage 1 LTC unit while I was orientating they wanted to switch my unit (from LTC to a rehab unit) and as soon as I was done with orientation I was given another unit to manage. I asked multiple times when I would go back down to the 1 unit that I was hired for and was given the run around until I finally quit.
Dietary Staff (Former Employee) – Waterloo, IA – May 13, 2016
Typical day a friendship village was communicating with residents and severing food to them, making sure they have everything they need and that they are getting treated thoughtful . The residents were lovely people and some co-workers were really nice and some of them made me feeling like I was being disrespected and I was being judge. There really was nothing hard at the job I really enjoyed and I really enjoy being activate with everyone and everything around me . The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the residents happy and satisfy. One thing I was really disappointed after putting my hard work almost 1 whole really they told me at the end that I was not putting any effort which I honestly disagree because Ive worked there 1 whole year almost .
State Tested Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Dayton, OH – October 12, 2012
No raises in five years and no prospects of one. Management leaves a great deal to be desired and people that would care are just totally spent. The place has great potential but it's unlikely anyone will do anything to enhance the circumstances any time soon.
flexibility for prn aides
bad attitudes of management and staff leaving even good workers without peace of mind at work
