Poor management
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), ArizonaSeptember 9, 2014
Pros: compassionate co-workers
Cons: disastrous management
This is a good place to start out as a new RN. You will learn a lot quickly due to very limited training. Management doesn't know their head from their butts and are very unsupportive. RNs and caregivers are compassionate and give good care, despite very low pay. Not a place I would return to.

Enjoyable
CNA/Caregiver (Current Employee), Bettendorf, IASeptember 8, 2014
Pros: being able to make up your own schedule
Cons: not offering us any health benefits or pay increase
I love the job and the patients, I have learned a lot about different illnesses and how they can affect people differently. I work with a lot of great people. The hardest part of the job for me, is when I see a patient pass away. I think the most enjoyable part of the job is listening to the patients and or relatives tell stories about their lives.

My typical day at the hospital consist on patient care and taking vitals. Working with new people everyday was a fantastic experience. The hardest part of my job was having to work 12 hour shifts. I worked the night shift, so it made it difficult. I enjoyed my job very much. Taking care of people was something I had always loved to do.

Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), Saint Croix Falls, WIJune 24, 2014
A day at work includes caring for residents and helping with ADL's. I learned that you work hard and safe no matter the circumstances. Management and co workers are wonderful to work with and very helpful. The hardest part of my job is when alzheimer's residents cry and I can not help them. The most enjoyable part of my job is going home knowing that – more... I helped someone live another safe day of life. – less

stressful working environment as they lack the right amount of employees
Universal Worker (Current Employee), Redwood Falls, MNMay 10, 2014
Pros: residents are awesome
Cons: no raise in two years, except for state regulated ones, impossible to get vacation time as they never have enough employees.
There is a lot of politics in this company and they tend to do what makes them money instead of what is best for the residents. They forget that the residents pay for everything there including their salaries. They should have the power to make decisions. Most decisions are solely up to the administrator instead of the residents. They spend money on – more... things like birds that cost a lot of money to care for and then wont let the residents have a water cooler. They claim cost yet they purchase expensive napkins of different colors instead of things that the residents would like. Some of the residents are afraid to speak up about a couple of the workers there as they fear retaliation from them and even people higher up. They run it like a business instead of a home for the residents. They need to remember that the residents do not live at our work but we work in their homes. I want a job I can be proud of and it is not here. I would love to work for any of the other facilities in town and have my applications out there as we speak, I know that I am not the only one. I have also been asked to break privacy agreement regarding the residents which I refused. I should never have even been asked to do so. They need totally new managers there and administration. Their policy is that if the next shift does not show up then you have to stay, I have had to do this many times which is hard when you have a family. Also one of the employees that has only been there a short time makes significantly more money than the rest of us because of some experience which has nothing to do with what we do, we all do the same job there and should be given raises according to years we have worked there, this person does not have a nursing degree either. This should be investigated. There are laws that protect employees yet no one gets protection here. – less

In Transition
LPN (Current Employee), Hot Springs Village, ARDecember 17, 2013
Pros: teamwork amoung nursing staff
Cons: pay scale
My overall experience at Good Sam's has been favorable. I have grown there as a nurse and a person.
There are still issues there with administration in transition of a new administrator coming in. Keeping administration staff apparently has been a challenge for them.
I feel confident that this facility is headed in the right direction. But they will – more... undoubtedly face some growing pains during transition. – less
