Waitress/Hostess (Former Employee) – Jenkintown, PA – May 2, 2017
A typical day at Rydal park would be clocking in for work, setting the table, finding out the specials/soups. I have learned how to be patient because with customers sometimes they are not always the warmest but I also understand their are people who aren't sure what they want and it builds a lot of patience. Management in my job was very strict but only as certain moments, when the head executives were around. In the workplace the people I worked with always motivated me to want to come back and just be positive when coming to work everyday. the hardest part of the job were some of the customers that would give me such a hard time when trying to fulfill their needs.
Activities Coordinator (Current Employee) – Rydal, PA – February 23, 2015
This a great company that really strives to improve the lives of its' residents. Due to turnover in management, not all staff members feel as though they are appreciated as much as they used to be. They have a great program called Pause for Praise which provides staff and residents the opportunity to tell other how much they appreciate their hard work.
Executive Director is a puppet and Nursing Home Administrator is a dictator
Employee (Current Employee) – Nursing Home – September 2, 2013
When I first started working at Rydal, it was great. About 3 years ago, they hired an ED and than a Nursing Home Administrator who are awful. The Administrator either fires everyone or they leave because she barks orders, is unapprciative and is dishonest. The communication is terrible and they put profits before the safety of the residents or staff. Supplies are always a problem. The ED has no backbone and listens to whatever the Administrator tells him. Everyone I kno who works in that department is unhappy. So much for this being a fatih-based place to work...........I see no evidence.
Dietary (Former Employee) – Rydal, PA – August 14, 2012
One of the things I loved a Rydal Park was that I got to learn many things such as catering, dinning room management, server, cashier, and coffe kiosk. My co-workers was always wiling to show me new things.
