Nurse (Current Employee), Rochester Hills, MI – May 24, 2013
Pros: free potlucks when least expected.
WORKING AT HCR MANOR CARE IS NICE, THER IS GREAT TEAM WORK AND THE MANAGEMENT GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO MAKE SURE THAT EMPLOYEES ARE HAPPY AT THE WORK PLACE AND THEY MANTAIN A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR THE PATIENTS , VISITORS AND US EMPLOYEES AS WELL.
Run They don't give cost of living raises - 2% increases if you are perfect
Manager (Current Employee), Oakmont - SC – May 20, 2013
Pros: great job security- turnover is high
Cons: managers don't care, patients don;t get care
They pay less than hospice and hospitals. They call it rehab,its a nursing home with a few therapist - go to a true rehab. They are always understaffed and the managers have checked out . They can't even keep Administrators. If you can't get someone to come to work for $100,000, then you are working in pure hell.
Great Job security - they can't fire – more... anyone, because the good employees run.
They don't give raises - 2% increases merit if you are perfect. The managers hate their jobs
They changed their name, but not the management
Run don't apply for this version of hell . I am trying to run, but you have to give birth to get a day off. It's hard to interview when you can't get off work. – less
Dietary aide (Current Employee), Zepherhills fl – May 20, 2013
Cons: pay sucks, management worries only about image, blames workers for mistakes the management makes
Been working there for over 4years and barely get payed 3cents over minimum wage. Have to deal with horrible management. Over worked and under appreciated. Have to scrounge for hours. The hardest part of working there is the harassment and havering to clock in
Housekeeper (Current Employee), Zephyrhills, Fl – May 20, 2013
Cons: unfair treatment of employees.
This is one of the worst companies to work for. Employees are treated unfairly and paid only minimum wage even after several years of employment. Administration only cares about image and will go to any length to hush up problems.

Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PA – May 14, 2013
I went in had 15 residents and I attended to their needs. I learned how to deal with all sorts of residents with their religion backgrounds and their beliefs. Co-workers were very nice and enjoyable to work with. There wasn't really a hard part because if I needed help I would ask for it and they would give me the answers. Most enjoyable being around – more... residents and taking care of them like I would want my family cared for. – less
DIETARY COOK/SHIFTMGR & NURSING ASSISTANT (Current Employee), Flushing, MI – May 13, 2013
Pros: meeting new residents and family members
Cons: poor management
The hardest part about this job is losing a resident. You know when they come here that we are the family that takes care of them when they come with no family or family who just dont care...so we adopt alot of our residents as grandmas and grandpas... Everyone needs to be and feel love and not alone.
C.N.A (Current Employee), Webster, TX – May 11, 2013
a typical day at work is making sure all the residents needs are fulfilled and they are comfortable. I learned to appreciate others and the importance of caring for others need. My Co-workers and myself worked very well with other, I got along with everybody. The most enjoyable part of my job was making the residents and their familes.
LVN (Former Employee), Palm Desert, CA – May 2, 2013
typical day at work would be overwhelming, stressful, someone asking if you want to stay for a DOUBLE. very short staffed and all the nurses are easily getting burnt out because of all the doubles and people calling in because they are tired and burnt out from doubles that they accept. NOT only does it stress, but leaves you in a poor health condition.
most – more... enjoyable part of the job is the teamwork and effort that all the nurses do. – less
Certified Nurse Assistant (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PA – April 25, 2013
Pros: taking care of the public
A typical work day includes patient care, my fellow nurses and nurse assistants are willing to help with the everyday needs of the patients. I have learned how to effectively communicate amongst co-workers, patients and their family members. The hardest part of my job is meeting the needs of the patients at the busiest time of the evening. Most enjoyable – more... part of my job is taking care of my patients and listening to their stories and just being there for them when they need it. – less
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), Easton, PA – April 24, 2013
A typical day at work is very hectic in the morning but it gets easier as the day goes on. The first task of the day is to wake up my residents and wash and dress them. My co-workers are very helpful and are always there when i need them. The hardest part of my job is getting attached to my residents and seeing their health decline..The most enjoyable – more... part of my job is know how much the appreciate me. For some of them i am the only "Family" they have and that makes me feel special. I love my job and wouldn't change it for the world. – less
RN 3-11:30pm (Former Employee), Mentor, OH – April 23, 2013
Pros: nursing co-workers willing to help if able, nurse practitioners on day shift, resources on hand
Cons: management staff never available to due to meetings all day. long hours, short staff, low pay scale, not respected by management
Friendly co-workers on the nursing floor. Unsafe nurse/patient patio. For long term 34:1 and rehab falls between 20:1 and 27:1. Post op patients where the hospital is discharging people long before they are stable to be discharged to a sub acute facility. There is a revolving door at Heartland. Was told when I was hired I would have two nursing assistants – more... and one other nurse with me. Staffing on weekends is horrific in the facility, management does NOT come in to help. There is an on call, but states to "Do the best you can do." The DON does try to make it work, but the administrator wants total control. Not the best company I have worked for, as to why I am at the hospital now. I would not recommend this job to a new graduate. Very high level of stress in this building. Expected to complete your assignment, short staffed of course, and receive two admissions on your shift. You can guarantee your eight hour shift will be a ten hour shift, and there will always be call offs. VERY VERY low paying company. Very clean facility, free from any odor of urine. The patient is always number one for needs I have to say. – less
Could be a great place to work if you weren't constantly overwhelmed and under too much stress
Admissions Director (Current Employee), Somewhere in the South – April 22, 2013
I enjoy the idea of what this position is supposed to be. I feel like in my particular situation, I was working the jobs of two people. On one hand, I was expected to be a marketer and keep all of my reporting systems up to date while calling on outside sources. On the other hand, I was required to do a ton of administrative work that tied me down to – more... the building. No matter if I worked 40 hours a week or 60 hours, it was never enough. I was on call 24/7, and I was held to a time table to respond to requests, even on evenings and weekends. I was routinely expected to work afer hours, before hours, on weekends, etc. I loved interacting with the families and residents. I enjoyed seeing the progress of each of my admits from the time they came into the bulding until the time they left. I also enjoyed my co-workers. It is wonderful to work with people who truly care about people. Everyone always seemed completely overwhelmed, though. Eventually, the helpless, hopeless feelings became too much to experience on a daily basis. – less
