Consider yourself lucky if you get a one hour lunch break. Try working a 16 hour shift with only 1 (ONE) paid 30 minute break and being told that if you want another break it has to be unpaid. You're lucky.

I agree. Been there, done that....almost destroyed my career with lies, deceptions and burn out Two thumbs way way down. It is unfortunate!!! Taking care of people at the end of life is supposed to be compassionate, selfless and money should be the last thing on their minds. They over work their staff and the CM's are over worked and burnt out which leads to mistakes and short cuts, leading ultimately to a decrease in quality of care. Not good. Worked very long hours, throughout many nights and never got paid for that. No breaks, lack thereof. Then, they wondered why the nurses were falling asleep in the team meetings. Trying to mandate overtime and work for admissions without being on-call. Calling after hours demanding to come back to work to do an admission and then stating that if the company was not a priority over family, school, etc-then we should leave. Also a manager stating, this is why we do not hire young, new mothers. WOW. Just a nightmare that I still relive all of the time, PTSD is what I suffer from this place. (These are my own experiences and not stating that every branch and everybody is like this there but through my experience, it was a never ending nightmare).
