CNA/Caregiver (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – August 17, 2017
Golden Living Center is a fast-paced environment with highly unique/lovely people who are perfect to interact with. Golden Living specializes in the care of your loved ones -- management 'chips' in wherever they can to help clients/staff ... ongoing training is focused on heavily [they want to be the best!].
Golden Living is much more peaceful than other facilities.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – August 15, 2017
Work as a CNA in this facility is a great way to gain experience, though it could be fast-paced to the point of being overwhelming. This, though, can be true of many medical facilities. The management was very supportive of the staff, including being hands on with help.
The best part of my time and job there were the patients. They really light up your shift.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Fullerton, NE – August 13, 2017
I greatly enjoyed the residents I took care of. I learned how to be patient when I was working in the behavioral unit. I learned about time management and how to chart thoroughly. The workplace at times was less then desirable. Management could stand to be revamped.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Cottonwood Falls, KS – August 12, 2017
It was a normal nursing home.. However, it was a very hostile work environment, and I will never go work for them again. There was a incident that happened, and they only listened to e side, not the whole story. Then to top it all off, I got laid off.

Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – August 10, 2017
I moved to Fort Smith Arkansas as a temporary move, and stayed for 5 years. I loved working in the corporate office as a systems analyst. I learned so many new things with the company. The training I received far surpassed any that I have received on the facility level.
Assistant Director of Nursing (Former Employee) – Johnstown, PA – August 8, 2017
Company is now Richland Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center, the staff works 100% to meet the needs of the resident's however, some resident's are not appropriate to be there; no appreciation for the staff
On a typical day, depending on if they where fully staffed or not, pretty relaxed or extremely stressful. The hardest part, was getting attached to some of the patients and then coming back the next day and them be gone. Another hard part is not having enough staff.
Relaxed. If you stay on schedule, you can have breaks and go on lunch.

daily bingo for the resident's in which they loved
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Rosemont, PA – August 7, 2017
daily care assisting resident's with the needs of getting bathed, dressed and feed. I learned how to work as a team and complete tasks in a timely manner. The management was great and was willing to assist when needed. The environment was pleasant and very cheery. The hardest part of the job was dealing with an unco-operative resident not willing to bend for your assistance. The most enjoyable part of the job was talking with the resident's and making their day.
Thr pros were being able to get help when needed, for the most part always staffed
I got to say working at this job was just plain down right horrible, first of all the company does not give a care, they rather spend money on other things besides fixing things that are poorly running like the refrigerator, they were so understaff that it wasn't funny, not to mention the food taste like cardboard and that was not due to the cooks, its because the company switch vendors constantly.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 7, 2017
My experience there was ok it could have been better when it came to people they hired. Always short on supplies like diapers and stuff like that . We didn't get paid for staying over in the snow storm. But, over all it could have been a lot worse. I did meet some good people.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Hayward, WI – August 4, 2017
Medication passes were the most time consuming. Very few times were you able to take a break, your were automatically deducted a half hour break from your pay even if you didn't get one. Management was not supporting of the staff, CNA staff were always understaffed, Some shifts were mandated to work doubles as there wasn't enough staff to staff the shift properly on a daily basis. The hardest part of the job was seeing that the residents did not always get the care that they deserved or even paid for. The only thing I can say that was enjoyable was the residents and some fellow co-workers.
The Golden years of life that we all must treasure because we all have to cross that bridge on day.
Business Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Lanett, AL – August 3, 2017
A typical day at work started very swiftly because of meetings and getting prepared for the day. I've worked in customer service over 25 years and I've enjoyed being able to help people when there is a need and I;m and able to solve it! Working at Golden Living was a different work culture for me but I was able to adapt because of compassion and empathy.
