Has some benefits, but work here at your own risk
Housekeeping/Laundry Aide (Former Employee) – Normal, IL – January 15, 2015
Worked for this company for a little over 2 years, and I still cannot believe I survived there as long as I did. While the benefits of health insurance, holiday pay, and weekend pay are decent, this company still has more cons than pros in my opinion. The residents are a pro, but the work environment is a major con! The turnover rate among hourly employees in nearly all areas is astronomical. Areas with the highest rates of turnover are Activities, Dietary, and Housekeeping/Laundry. Administrators and managers have their favorites among employees. If they don't like you for whatever reason, they will want to document you in a heartbeat for some petty thing that could have been dealt with in another manner. It is also very female-dominated, and a lot of the women do not like men mostly because they have been in bad relationships. You could be the most reliable employee and never call off, and they would still want to document or get rid of you for being "too slow", "disorganized", or "gossiping too much." Meanwhile, their favorites are calling off every other day, gossiping about you, and doing much worse things and getting away with it. It all depends on who runs a department and who is tight with an administrator. If you like working with the elderly and want to take a shot at a place like Heritage Health, more power to you. But start job hunting again if you feel you are being treated unfairly, like you are headed for the chopping block, or are just unhappy is my advice!
health insurance, holiday pay, weekend pay, every other weekend off for most employees
only 10 minute breaks, early start times may interfere with sleep patterns, arrogant and hostile work environment, favoritism, gossiping, tattling, and very high employee turnover
