When I worked there my supervisors were impossible to please and didn't have any interest in the good things I did. But none of them are there now. They got fired shortly after I turned my resignation in.
Great environment to work in, friendly staff as well as residents. Work /life balance is excellent, great pay, could not ask for a better employer. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great job.
This job is not a job to be excited about (just being honest) however i make the most of anything and mostly everything. After spending quite some time (10 years) being a homemaker and an at home mom, this was my first job back into the corporate world. A job that i would say "i'd never do that..." Ha! Yeah right. One of my strengths in life is laundry. One of my favorite things to do being a homemaker aside from cooking is laundry. I am quite the perfectionist when it comes down to doing all tasks but laundry is where i'd spend most of my time. Raising a little one (my daughter) and caring for an air craft mechanic I took great pride in getting things cleaned and folded neatly. So when I saw this position available I said to myself, hmm, this is definitely a piece of cake for me at-least. Wrong! As with any task I found the brighter side of what was gross thing to take pride in. I went above and beyond what was expected of me and connected with my co-workers in transitioning. The hardest part was blotting out what would normally make me sick to my stomach (the soiled linens and personal items). The enjoyable part was watching my boss come in and thank me for doing things that I wasn't assigned to do.
Meeting the needs of others, doing something I loved doing, and making new friends
The shift was not fitting for me being a mother of a school aged child
Director (Current Employee) – Lakeland, FL – May 3, 2016
A typical workday is very Re-warding it is great to work with such wonderful people and to take care of people that may not be able to take care of themselves it is great to have good management that cares about you the customers and your families it is also wonderful to see the recovery process when people are able to return home also work in an environment that is a homelike environment for the customers that live here long term
management fails on many occasions and lack certain standards that i believe should be held. ive learned nothing co workers are fine. hardest part of the job is dealing with management, not enjoyable at all
Manager (Current Employee) – eustis fl – April 20, 2016
I have worked for a year in a management position. Opis works really hard to prevent turnover and retain employees. This industry is very tough, we take care of people who are very sick and many do not have familes. Often time families don't appreciate the hard work employees do. I think Opis tries really hard to do the right thing. They are extremely ethical which as a manager is important. In their ethics it takes time to ensure all stones are turned. This is perhaps why others are disatisfied? They hold their team members to high standards thus likely offends when disciplinary action occurs.
Med monkey (Former Employee) – Ormond Beach, FL – January 20, 2016
Opis MR has the most unbalanced management I have ever had the displeasure of working with. During my several years of employment with this company I have seen the DON seat change 8 times. Corporate turns a blind eye to their psychotic managers. Neglectful employees are not punished but the whistle blowers are. I have described working for this company as working in the twilight zone! If you value your nursing license, DO NOT work for this company. They preach change and betterment.....all lies!

Nursing (Former Employee) – Highlands Lake Center – April 18, 2015
The management seem to only focus on making profit! The mission matters is a ruse. The employees have no credibility especially the ones who stayed with the company for so long. They play favorites! The turnover for the nursing staff is unbelievable. Basically if you are friends with people of power, you are good...very good. Everything is for a show.
Dietary manager had favorites, so I felt unfairly treated. I was pregnant when they hired me, but then they immediately ended my employment once my doctor paced me on some minor restrictions. No lifting, pushing, or pulling more than 20lbs, they made me go home the day I brought them the letter and I missed about 2 and a half weeks of work just waiting on them to inform me on what their decision was about my request for accommodations. I felt mistreated, and I also felt some form of discrimination due to the fact of my pregnancy.
The rehab department is one of the best in the county. The management is over-bearing and micromanages the employees. The pay rate increases on an annual basis are minimal and the company no longer provides Health Insurance for spouses'.
Great rehab staff team that all work exceptionally well together
Minimal pay increase and no spousal health insurance coverage
LPN (Former Employee) – Longwood – January 6, 2015
There are pros and cons to working at this facility. The pros: the staff are helpful and friendly. The unit manager is amazing. I am not trying to knock the company off I just want to inform others what occured when I worked there. First off, 3-11 shift is one of the hardest shifts to work at. During my interview process I was told that there would be 3 nurses but when I was on the floor, it was a different story. I was suppose to have 3 days of training. The first day was shadowing the nurse, second day I come in, I was told that a nurse called off so I had to go on the floor, there was only 2 nurses that day including me and she was fairly new. There is alot of responsibility for the nurse. I did not take a break because I had a heavy med pass, on top of that when I thought I was done, I had to do skin checks, treatments, call dr, document. For four days straight I did not like working there, I try to maintain a posite attitude. My feet was aching from the physical demand. I do not feel this is nursing. It is absolutely absurd to have this much responsibility on just one nurse with 20-30 patients and they pay you very low. The DON was unapologetic when I told her how disorganized this company is. To my fellow nurses, please protect your nursing license, there are better places to work beside this company. I personally think if there wasn't much of a change over of staff and provide more nurses/Cna's on the 3-11 shift then there would not be a problem. For example, if a nurse called off, they should call other nurses, if that doesn't work they should call an agency. Theymore... did not do that when I was there. Also I don't understand why there is always 3 nurses on the morning shift but the afternoon shift it's a hit or miss. I think that's just wrong.less
you have a job
overwork, underpaid, understaff, disorganized, DON is unprofessional
Don't waste your time applying. You probably won't stay!
CNA (Former Employee) – Ormond Beach, FL – October 17, 2014
They work you to death. DON could care less about the CNA's or nurses. If you have a problem don't bother telling them, they won't do a thing about it anyway. Big work load, little pay & no appreciation. Extremely difficult residents. They take anyone just to get residents. DON runs facility and admin. let's her, as another reviewer stated.
