Assistant Leasing Agent (Former Employee), Rock Island, IL – October 31, 2014
Pros: new professional experience
Cons: lack of training
My day started by checking and following up on messages, making calls to possible tenants, maintaining database. Inputting money for rent, storage, parking payments.Maintained confidential files, kept database updated. The most difficult aspect of this potion was the lack of time for training and learning property management. Most enjoyable was learning – more... new skills, also being apart of helping people finding places to live. – less
Receptionist (Former Employee), Tallahassee, FL – August 21, 2014
Working with a company like McDonalds creates a real diverse mind set for me. Some people may think working for a fast food company is not for them because of different stereotypes but me being given the opportunity to work for them I learned a lot about people and how people (The Customer) would want/like to be treated. I learned you must definitely – more... treat people the way you want to be treated first things first. Working for a fast food company gives you an hands on experience of customer service. – less
Marketing Director (Current Employee), Ponca City, OK – May 12, 2014
Pros: we got to enjoy meals with our residents
Cons: residesnt care some people didnt care as much as others
I spent a lot of time on the phone speaking with people about what the Renaissance was about. Also what kind of care we had to offer. The hardest part of my job was keeping eveyone happy, my co- workers did a lot of team work together so it made it a little better
Group Sales Associate (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – February 21, 2014
I loved working at the Worthington Renaissance. However I did not feel as tho I received the proper training for my position. The position I was hired to do was a very demanding, detailed position. I loved my job and was extremely excited about working at the Renaissance.
Supervisor (Former Employee), Saint Augustine, FL – February 3, 2014
I was in charge or over--saw 16 employees as a housekeeping supervisor one of only two for a 301 room grand hotel at the world golf village. The helpers were excellent food was great we got to purchase a food ticket that lasts a week or so for our lunches. They gave us perks for working for a great company and doing a great service.
Front Desk Agent (Current Employee), Palm Springs, CA – November 4, 2013
I have definitely learned how to manage a guests expectations at this job. A typical day at work would be supervising and making sure that all reports and logs have been completed. The billing information on all current guests and future guests is correct. Working with all departments at the property to make sure that guests requests, inquiries, and – more... concerns are addressed and fulfilled if not exceeded. Balancing large groups of check-ins and check-outs, while assisting the concierge, and PBX. The one thing that I have definitely learned from this job is not only how to manage guests expectations, but also how to stay calm and provide exceptional customer service in any chaotic situation. – less

STNA (Current Employee), Olmsted Township, OH – August 20, 2013
Pros: positive co workers. wonderful nurses.
Cons: not enough time to spend with residents individually.
My experience as an aide so far has been fantastic! I love working with the residents. Getting to know the residents' likes and dislikes, and learning about their lives makes the days extremely rewarding. I enjoy being with the residents that don't ordinarily enjoy much, and when I just spend a little extra time with them it puts them at ease and usually – more... I get a smile out of them. I'm considered a "float" which means I rarely stay with the same residents more than once.My average assignment is usually anywhere from 9-13 residents. I have also mainly been working in a memory support locked unit. So I have become familiar with dementia. I have a difficult time trying to find other people willing to be a team player with me. Most residents require at least 2 people for transfers and it makes the day run smoothly with a partner. – less
Fun and loving enviroment to work in, I really enjoyed going to work everyday!
Certified Nurses' Assistant (Former Employee), State College, PA – June 8, 2013
* A typical day at Renaissance consisted of being at the least 15 minutes before your shift (preferably 20 minutes) so that you can get prepared and communicate with whomever worked the shift ahead of you to make sure you know of any changes or issues with any of the residents. We would pass out all prescribed medications, prepare and serve meals, help – more... residents with the essentials of everyday living, and with any time left or in between duties we washed laundry and cleaned their rooms and common living areas. * I learned how to have patience with and understand all kinds of different personalities, how to cook and prepare foods for different diets needs and specifications, and I gained more experience in communication and simply people in general. * I feel we had great management, our employer was very understanding, helpful, and was a wonderful teacher. * I never felt as if the people that I had worked with were co-workers, we were more of a family type team that functioned like a well oiled machine. * The hardest part of the job was leaving, when our team found out that Renaissance was closing their doors it was heart breaking. It was so hard to say good-bye to all of the residents that we had grown to love. * The most enjoyable aspect of the job was being able to meet the most welcoming and loving people I had ever met in my life. I will never forget a single residents that I cared for nor will I forget any team members or management, this was honestly a fantastic environment to work in with absolutely the sweetest people and I am so glad I was lucky enough to be apart of it. – less
