Dietary Aide (Former Employee), Erie, PA – July 23, 2014
*Some employees very slow holding everything back but at the end off the day everything was under control and on point.
*I learned when someone is a little slow on things to go back and help the others after my work is finished. . *Was not on top of things like they should've.
*My co-workers were very helpful at times but some were really lazy.
*The – more... hardest part of the job was switching the slips with the senior citizens name on it from table to there room,because on certain days they would switch up in eat in their rooms instead of the dining area and that screwed things up. So we had to organize the pile of room slips from the dining area slips.
*The most enjoyable part of the job was sticking together to get things done. – less
Vitality Program Assistant (Current Employee), Gainesville Florida – June 6, 2014
Meetings in the morning, type up minuts from the meeting. Read my email and begin working from there. Calling for assessments, reminder calls. Work on charts and graphs. Do invoices, answer phone calls. etc. Clerical work.
I have learnt more about computers and programs. What computers can help me do for my job, to improve my work.
I work with wonderful – more... nurses. I have learnt alot about medical procedures even though we do not preform any in the clinic. – less
The Village is a great place to work. The atmosphere is great. My co-workers are always friendly and respectful. Teamwork is no problem. Management is awesome and so are the residents. What I like most about my job here is that my schedule is very flexible. This allows me to work and go to school at the same time to further my career path at The Village. – more... The only thing I don't like about this job is the pay is not good, no benefits(because I work PRN), no shift differential. Overall, this is a great place to work. – less
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Spring, TX – March 29, 2014
Pros: vacations, time off when needed, very family orientated and understanding company.
I was employed with the Village at Gleannloch Farms for 4 years. In that 4 years time I learned so many new things that I was able to take with me after my journey ended. The HARDEST/MOST ENJOYABLE part about my job with VGF was getting so attached to the residents and staff. It was truly like "living/working" with a second family. Everyone was always – more... happy and upbeat about being at work. My managers were always there when I needed help or had any questions or concerns. – less
LPN Charge Nurse (Former Employee), pell city, al – March 5, 2014
I wouldn't recommend anyone to work here. they do not care enough for staff or residents. Feels like a high school environment, never enough staff for the daily work load. need to wipe out management and start over. Might look nice but needs other issues addressed. Hard to get patients basic needs met with lack of staff.
Great opportunity so long you don't mind being treated poorly
Line Cook (Former Employee), Gainesville, FL – February 19, 2014
Cons: no one wanted to do the actual physical work
Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Was introduced to this company as somewhere I would like to retire. The human resource office is well prepared and set-up new employees every well, but then you work for the dining service department. Management doesn't train or help form a successful relationship with employees. They do great job of labeling – more... and judging you which demotivates your willingness to want to continue work. High turnover. While I worked at the village at least three full time employee left the back of house within four months. Not including several front of house workers left because of negative treatment. Again during orientation the human resource group talked about it being so great to work here and that there's not much turnover. That was totally false, but wouldn't have found out without working there. – less
CNA (Former Employee), Cook Springs, AL – November 10, 2013
Cons: just worked weekends
I enjoyed working with patients with Alzheimer's and their families. You can learn so much from their stories they tell. I worked in assisted living as well and Loved helping residents with their daily task.
Marymount, Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Garfield Heights, Ohio – October 11, 2013
Often while working here I was the only RN on the floor. Large RN to patient ratios compounded with having to do simple tasks for LPNs. I rarely left on time, and compensation was abysmal. I often felt like I was working in an unsafe professional environment.
