You get to know the people you work with not only in your department but also in other departments through out the facility. Getting to know people from other departments help because it's basically like building a team to make the work day smoother.

I'm not sure why people have had such bad experiences because I've worked here over 2 years per diem and really enjoy it as a nurse. I use to work for 2 different nursing agencies who have sent me to many different facility's to work so I've worked at A LOT of nursing homes and there's a reason this place is rated 5 stars! It's very clean, staff are professional and I would work here full time if I didn't have a full time job in homecare. Out of all nursing homes I have worked at throughout NYS this is by far the nicest.
Cant think of anything i dont like? Parking maybe? Lol

This organization cares about it's employees and the residents. It is a great place to work and the benefits are good too. There is a culture of collaboration and innovation here. Because of this, there can be stressful times (not always!), and overall the organization is growing and it is exciting to be a part of that growth.

The Jewish Home has been plagued with staff turnover issues for years. The issues start with their senior management team. The CFO is particularly horrible. Expect to be put in the basement for 8-10 hours a day with no windows . You can expect long hours, little job satisfaction, and a large amount of stress. Management doesn't know what they're doing.

The Jewish home is not a good place to work. Very poor management. The HR should look at the supervisors in dining services. 4 managers sit and do nothing, while everybody else works really hard. They make vacation plans on company time. Don't work here. What ever you do.

The Jewish home is not a great place to work. I thought it was good at first. It went down hill. I work in dining services. The managers in dining services are rude and disrespectful. They work you like a dog. Do not work here

They do not work as a team and they are always on the move so you are never or slim to none to find someone for help with a difficult patient. Also you barely are able to take your scheduled breaks on time
Good pay and alot of availble hours
No team work and too many residence a day for one person
Would be a great place if they cared about their residents.
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – May 21, 2017
I loved the Jewish Home for the experience of meeting the residents. I hated it for almost every other reason. Nurse managers were more concerned about how they looked to higher management then anything else, including residents. The supervisors are actually pretty awesome but they have no power to make any real change. CNAs were rude and degrading to residents and other staff. I even had a resident get threatened by one and management did absolutely nothing about it. I had residents crying to me every night about how they just felt like they were a piece of trash there. It was the most heartbreaking thing. If you are a nurse that actually cares about people and believes in what it means to be a nurse, don't work there. You aren't going to change how they do anything and no one cares. If you have a bad attitude, are abusive, just collecting a paycheck, seems like the perfect place for you.
A typical day at work needs prioritization based on necessities. It started from the onset on entering the building then all is set for a full day's event which is usually busy and interesting. As the day progresses depending on your personality could be enjoyable if one is inviting. Since mention was made on being enthusiastic, every other aspects of the job falls evenly in place.
good place to work, all care very much about residents

The Jewish home is a great place to work. Everyone works together. Residents are well cared for and happy.All departments have the best interest of the residents and work together to make a good home like enviorment. The most enjoyable part of the job there is to see the residents satisfied.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – August 14, 2013
I was assigned a set of residents upon arriving at work, the set could vary anywhere from 8 to 12 residents depending on how well staffed we were. I then had to care for those residents for the duration of my shift. A typical day would involve me cleaning them, feeding them, spending time with them and their families, and then putting them to bed. My co-workers were hard working and everyone got along. The hardest part of my job I would say were the nights that the residents really fought me and would make my job very difficult. The job, however, was truly remarkable in the stories that the residents would share with me and the bonds I made.
