Very good nursing home/facilitiy
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Schaumburg, ILFebruary 13, 2018
Friendship Village was by the far the best nursing home/sub acute facility to work at. The patients/residents are very respectful. The facility always has enough supplies when needed. And the employees were very laid back and easily approachable.

Very low staffed
DIETARY AIDE (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, MNJanuary 29, 2018
Very low staffed. Loved the residents and the co-workers. I would show up to work and have to start working before I clocked in to make sure I could get everything done on time.

Watch your pay
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) –  Carlinville, ILJanuary 21, 2018
Its bad enough that they are the lowest paid home in the area, but you have to watch your paycheck very closely because nearly half of the paychecks you receive are short and you have to ask for another check. Sometimes they make you wait 2 more weeks to correct the pay they owe you, and even then, it may still be wrong. The problem of incorrect pay compounds on itself and pretty soon you dont know how much they owe you. Management clearly makes no effort to correct this continual problem, maybe because their checks are probably ok.
Pros
Hmmm.
Cons
The place is a mess.

I really enjoyed being at Friendship. The staff was friendly and the residents were very nice. The pay could have been better that's what made me look for better paying employment.

Friendship vilage was a great place to work and a great starting job for someone who hasnt worled before. Learned a lot of life skills and became friends with the residents and their families. Too many firings at the time I left and they focused on issues that werent necessary amd puahed people away from the job

Residents are amazing
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHOctober 27, 2017
The residents and some staff are wonderful to work with, but management currently leaves a lot to be desired. Most departments are short-staffed and underappreciated. Management is concerned about money, not necessarily taking care of the residents OR staff. Expectations are often unrealistic.

Nursing Assistant Externship (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZOctober 17, 2017
Nice place, but i've seen CNA's that are resident unfriendly. But I've been with others that really care for their patient/resident.The place I like the most is the rehab, because patients there are happy and really looking forward to go home.
Pros
cheap lunch
Cons
short break

Poorly managed
Certified Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MO 63127October 11, 2017
The nursing staff was always under staffed needing for you to take on more than 16 residents per person on the typical day. The rate of employee turn around was ridiculous.
Pros
Hours always availble

Kitchen area not that bad to work.

Assisted living and memory care
Charge Nurse (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHSeptember 19, 2017
You were responsible for 2 floors everyday up to 50 plus residents on 1st and 2nd shift, working 8 to 16 hour shifts. on third shift you were responsible for all the floors up to 150 residents. You didn't work with STNA it was a Care givers.. Off the streets people doing STNA jobs with hardly any knowledge and no pay. after staff would be hired they either worked 1 day or never came in at all. Always worked short handed, Began to be a LTC with needing more care and alarms, lifts, and high elopements. No communication. Could not keep a DON. The people needed more care and time for what they were paying to live there.
Ceilings leaked from top floor down to bottom floor, MOLD.
Too stressful for assisted living and memory care.
