Professional Employee (Former Employee), Fairfax, VA – June 16, 2014
Cons: poor benefits, no time off, employee lounge that looks like it should be in a prison, mgm like to scream and yell and treat everyone like a child
Don't ever think the administrator is doing anything for the patient. He just wants to get you off his back and if he can promise something to make you happy, he will. BUT HE WILL NEVER ACTUALLY DO ANYTHING.
Care Partner (Former Employee), Chagrin Falls OH – August 13, 2014
Pros: no pros
Cons: the whole place consequences
They get no stars from me.... Management is rude and only care about the money they don't care about the residents trust me I know I worked there I had to leave that place seeing what was going on there was absolutely horrible.. And the namaste hall is a joke its a waste of your money its a way for management to smuggle more money out of your pockets – more... for NOTHING!! – less
Activity Director - Activity Assistant (Former Employee), Walnut Creek, CA – August 8, 2014
I really enjoyed this job, initially. I was hired as an assistant to the activity director and six months after I started the activity director groomed me and left me in charge while she was absent on maternity leave for three months. Three months went by and she never came back. The Administrator finally offered me the job, but he completely low balled – more... my worth. He didn't even look at my resume which included my BAS degree. During the "interview" for the job I had already been doing for the past 6 months @ a measly $14 an hour as the Interim Activity Director, with 4 assistants below me, he told me they were willing to pay me $16 an hour bc I didn't have a degree. I told him he obviously didn't look at my resume. He also said that they were making the position salary as I was costing them too much hourly. Unbelievable. I worked for another 6 months bc I cared about my co-workers and the residents, but it is honestly the worst company I have ever worked for. – less
Registered Nurse Supervisor (Sub-Acute/Rehab) (Former Employee), Pewaukee, WI – August 7, 2014
I enjoyed the day to day challenges that a sub-acute rehabilitation unit provided. As new nurse I learned a great deal, so much that there is not enough space to go into the specifics. My co-workers and I worked well together, where one was weak in one area another was strong. The CNAs there are also excellent. I enjoyed seeing a client come in nervous – more... and scared with the idea that they were in a "nursing home", after an evening with me they were all smiles and understanding that this is just a step towards regaining their independence. I enjoyed educating clients on health maintenance and taking control of their health. The hardest part was seeing people that clearly needed more time within the facility but their was nothing that could be done to lengthen their stay to ensure that they would not be a readmit for the same problem, – less
CNA (Former Employee), Battle Creek – July 30, 2014
Pros: 30 min lunch maybe
I worked for them for 8 months and in that time I'd never encountered so many unregulated, angry residents. They would do anything they could to hurt staff and management didn't care. Pay was never right, you never got time off, they hounded you at home for other shifts, never enough floor staff, patients were not bathed enough, and doctors were constantly – more... deregulating their patients for 2 weeks to see if they still needed their meds! It was a mad house and the female CNA staff were always getting hurt. Honestly if I could've given a lower rating I would – less
State Tested Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Parma, OH – July 29, 2014
This place was only a couple of months old when i started working here. They were still in the process of working out all the kinks. Highly unorganized. However, I made the best of my day to day work assignments and enjoyed spending time with the residents.
RN, Nurse Supervisor (Current Employee), Oak Lawn, IL – July 28, 2014
I learned time management and prioritization while working at HCR Manor Care as a new graduate nurse. My co workers aided in my learning and expanding my nursing knowledge by being supportive and available to answer any questions that I might have had. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with supportive, hard working people to ensure optimal – more... patient outcomes. The hardest part of the job is managing time to complete all work accurately and efficiently. Overall, I enjoyed working here as a new graduate nurse. – less
Registered Nurse Supervisor (Current Employee), Boulder, CO – July 25, 2014
Pros: primary choice for rehab in area, job security
Cons: minimal raise percentage
Manor Care is one of the primary skilled rehab and long term care nursing facilities in the Front Range Area. Typical day: very busy with charge nurse duties, multiple admits and discharges, coordinating with daily MD visits Management: periodically assigns preferred schedules and shifts to less qualified workers to balance budget Coworkers: almost – more... all amazing, hardworking, committed to care Hardest part: Periodic staffing shortages Most enjoyable: working with patients and families – less
CNA (Current Employee), Olympia, WA – July 22, 2014
Pros: the staff does work well together.
Cons: we more often than not, do not get our breaks, and no apperication by managment.
The nursing staff, is overworked. The Cna's are ran ragged and thus, why we have a almost 100% turn over rate. Training, is a joke and the Cna's go through a baptism by fire of sorts. The cna's are made to feel like we are just a number . They continually accept Patients that we are not capable of caring for properly. The Management staff is not approachable – more... when there is a problem. They refuse to accept any responsibility for the problems that need to be addressed and turn the blame on the employees. We were told if we don't like it, we can leave. – less
RN Supervisor (Former Employee), Allentown, PA – July 18, 2014
Pros: desert tray during lunch at orientation
Cons: so many i cant list them
I took this job because I had been unemployed from a prior lay off and really needed the job. I walked face first into a mismanaged frying pan, of non-stop disasters, mistakes, harassment and bullying. I have the right goal and the right intentions and plenty of experience. The inept nursing staff that continues to be employed has purposely forced me – more... out of a job. The incompetence of staff in this locations is unreal. Its been 4 weeks and I'm just about done. I drive to work with a feeling of impending doom, and leave work with an urge to step on the gas and never return. – less
Social Worker (Former Employee), Colorado – July 15, 2014
- Pay is decent for a starting social worker, but is not competitive after experience and time have progressed. - Interdisciplinary team works well together
- Horrible benefits and PTO - Long hours, but you're salaried and considered a "manager" so you don't get any additional pay for all the hours you work - Terrible work/life balance – more... -- you will be called or get texts on your days off to manage issues - Merit increases are laughable and nearly non-existent - Incredibly stressful environment - Corporate is intrusive and disconnected from actual care - Money-focused instead of patient-focused – less
