Caregiver (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – November 14, 2017
All I have to say is Mount Royal Tower needs to be shut down, I feel sorry for those residences. What I witnessed was disgusting and horrible. I never want to go back to that place. If you have family there, get them out while you can.
Loved the residences.
Pay sucks, management sucks, and if you want a decent paycheck, you have to work extreme amount of days and overtime
Working here is very stressful but if you not scared of hard work you can indure.

Get ready to work and work hard. Mount Royal Towers probably have changed by now because I been gone for awhile but it's a ok work place. Make sure you be on them about your annually raise every year or you will be making the same for years.

This a stupid company to work for ! Real nasty attitudes and I've noticed it's mostly "my kind" work here which already let me know was up . HR talk to you nasty , and some of the management . They do under hand and I honseslty wished I never even took this job offer cause for 1 they treat my people like for 2 it's nasty and old building 3 monitor your pay cause they pull sneaky ish ! I honestly wouldn't recommend at all. I wouldn't even put a dam dog in this facility . Always making pleades about how to treat these wonderful senior citizen but they don't honor how they talk or treat us .
Mount Royal Towers is not a good place to work if you want to advance your career or are looking for any benefits.
Program Leader/Caregiver (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – July 25, 2017
This Company does not provide an opportunity for advancement, they do not give raises to employees. However, I learned that I love to work with elderly patients or residents, I enjoy making them happy. I feel that after working at Mount Royal Towers for two years I could work in any establishment and be a top employee.

I started on the assisted living floor then went on down to the dementia unit. You had responsible workers but horrible management. Its better to know all your residents so you know their specific needs and management didn't do that and have harsh attitudes like the owner.
Great place to be to start a profession in the medical feild

I've learned the concept of being a Med Tech Working in a nursing home is special in that you’ll be a member of the care team collectively taking care of your residents. And because these are long-term care residents, you’ll get to know them and their conditions much better than in other types of nursing positions. Everyone works together to provide the best care for the residents.
You’ll play an important role in an interdisciplinary team, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social work, case management and more. Together you’ll work on forming beneficial care plans for your patients

A Good work enviorment nice benefits nice management. Working with Residence that have disabilities examples.. Can't walk ,poor vision issues, dementia , and more can be a good a task but if you have patience ,understanding that a person with these disabilities really need the help to countinue there daily activities and don't take the frustration in them to personal because these individuals at times really appreciate the help that's given to them and that what make the employers more happier and can not wait to help again to keep those appreciation comments coming.

Medication administration, wound care, various treatments, medical documentation,and communication with physician. Management is flexible and fair. Wonderful co-workers that promote continuum of client care.
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – June 15, 2015
I enjoyed working at Mount Royal because of my residents. I did not enjoy the low pay rate because as a caregiver we did majority of the work but the kitchen and housekeeping employees were paid a lot more. Also, when I was there management for the caregivers really sucked.
Activities Director (Former Employee) – Vestavia Hills – February 3, 2015
Management is unscrupulous, they only do what is right for the residents when they have a state inspector show up; otherwise, they ignore the residents in all areas other than the independent care area. Management will lie to employees making promises they never intend to fulfill. Will not reimburse the employee for mileage for company errands. Staff is overworked and under-payed. My first week on the job (and I only stayed two weeks) all I heard up and down the halls was the employees stating to each other how "they hated this F*&^*ing place." I now know why
This is the worst facility I have ever had the displeasure of working for. The turn over rate is ridiculous due to how management speaks their employees. Don't even try to call off because you will be told to find your own replacement or it is a no call no show. No one works together and this place smells horrible due to no one changing the residents till the end of their shift, not always due to laziness but mostly because theirs no time. If the management believes that you might possibly have a chance to breath then you have too much time and will add something new for you to do. And don't even get me started on the mandatory extra shifts and never getting a raise. If your desperate than yeah go for it but please find something better before this place drains you and ultimately makes you wish that you would've never gotten into healthcare.
LPN/Charge Nurse (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – June 28, 2013
Mount Royal Towers is the job you use while trying to get where you trying to go. I see no long term security at this facility. They change your schedule whenever they want, without discussing it with the employees. I have seen them fire employees without notice nor reason. They do not give raises. They do not give shift differential. They are always under review from State because of multiple complaints. They care nothing about the employees welfare nor lifestyle. I was grateful for the job while I had it, but once I received an opportunity to leave I couldn't leave fast enough.
They pay the nurses ok
No raises, shift difference, nor secure job schedule.
