Activity Director Assistant (Former Employee) – Scranton, PA – October 12, 2016
It was a sloppy disorganized work area. Management was weak and dishonest. Other then the workers and management I fell in love with my patients very quickly. You will get the full CNA experience here.
Senior Information Architect (Current Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – October 17, 2016
My typical day consist of making sure the entire Golden Living WAN and Network are fully operational. Look for proactive and ways to improve network. Make sure company is better from my effort then the day before.
Contract Specialist III (Current Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – September 16, 2015
Overall, I believe Golden Living (corporate offices) is a good place to work. The people in most of the departments are wonderful. There is a lack of communication between individuals that makes it hard to complete a person's job. There is also a lack of organization between departments requiring the same information. For example, when a practitioner is hired at a facility, HR requests documents from that person. HR does not share those documents with departments needing them for Medicare certification or payor contracting.
Dinning center, ice machines, flexibility, benefits
The facility is understaffed and micromanaged poorly, staff is overworked with no raises, nor benefits and hours have been cut to part time for all st
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Mount Airy, NC – August 14, 2015
Understaffed and poor management. Facility is not clean and management has double standards for the employees. They don't give raises and have cut the hours of the employees to part time. Employees have to be on call on their days off with no pay. They don't offer insurance. Patient/CNA ratio is approximately 25-2 on 1st and 2nd shifts and 25-1 on 3rd shift.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Merrillville, IN – September 9, 2015
Nursing homes in general have very short orientation periods. This place in particular is exceptionally short. On my 3rd day of orientation, I was given several high acuity residents with no report and left to figure things out on my own which was very scary as a new RN with no prior medical experience. It took me forever to figure things out and had to ask a ton of questions, annoying other nurses in the process. As like most nursing homes they are understaffed and this is why nurses get burned out. I ended up going prn so I won't get totally frustrated and can learn at my own pace and last but not least not put my resident's lives in danger due to my lack of experience. As the months have passed, I have learned a lot but not as much as I would like. I am more confident in the skills I have learned but look forward to learning more and being the best RN I can. The experienced nurses are very helpful most of the time. My unit manager is very understanding and helpful. The workers of the facility have not been given a raise in 5 years. It's really sad. Luckily I have another job.
Director of Dining Services (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 19, 2016
3 years of a toxic corporate culture driven strictly by financials. Bottom line profits are the singular focus behind all true initiatives at this company. Level of patient care is marginal at best. Zero room for professional advancement. This company redefines the statement "do as I say, not as I do."
Accounting Specialist (Current Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – August 10, 2016
I have to say that I have a great team to work with, and that is a lot of my happiness to be here. I enjoy the fact that if I come in and do my work, and be rewarded for my efforts. I have learned that a good rapport with people who have jobs that intersect with my job can be very beneficial for both sides. Anything is possible when you work as a team, and the company always wins when we work as a team.
Network & Telecommunication Engineer 1 (Current Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – October 12, 2016
With Golden Living being a Cisco shop I've been able to further my knowledge with top of the line Cisco products with a great team that's more than willing to teach to those who want to learn more. We each specialize in one area of the infrastructure but have no problem reaching out for help if need-be. It's been a great learning experience overall.
Charge Nurse LPN (Former Employee) – Jefferson City, MO – October 19, 2016
THE WORST! BAD WITH EVERY AREA/FIELD OF NURSING!... DOESNT EVEN DESERVE THE CAPITAL LETTERS IM USING! Doesn't respect their employees. Hires anyone who walks through the door. Slouch nurses, CNAs, staff in general! I quit & was suprised to see there's many of these places all over with similar terrible results.
Charge Nurse (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – July 24, 2015
I have been working for Golden Living Center Omaha for approximately 2.5 years and I love my coworkers and residents here. My second shift staff are all respectful and compassionate people. The only reason I am looking for another job is the current wage freeze. No current employees at this facility are receiving any kind of wage raises. Some "bonuses" are being given for picking up extra shifts as the facility is very short staffed. But theses bonuses are rarely seen after taxes. They are currently under new DON leadership and are making noticeable attempts to improve things however.
Very positive environment with very professional employees and supervisors
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Portage, IN – November 10, 2016
The workplace is safe as well as comforting for the residents, and working for Golden Living Centers was a very unique and positive experience! The Co-workers were all very good and motivated people and went above and beyond to ensure the best environment for each and every guest.
Clean facility with welcoming co-workers and memorable residents.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Merrillville, IN – April 8, 2016
Resident wise, the best facility so far. Pay is very low and work load is very heavy, but well worth it to see your residents smile. From management to house keeping, everyone did their job well. Maintenance was always checking on t.v's and restrooms etc. to make sure they were working well. Nurses passing meds on time, aid's making sure rounds were done close to time, house keeping getting clothes to the right residents, management making sure things ran as smooth as possible. Loved the team work.
Dedicated to providing quality and person centered care

Director of Construction Management (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – October 27, 2015
Responsible for material delivery and project coordination. Good company just wanted to be a project manager and upper management did not think I was ready. Wanted me to finish the Cowboy Stadium first, but did not want to wait 3 1\2 years
