Good place to work if youcan survive dealing with the administration/management
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Oxford, PA – May 20, 2017
Very friendly environment. Co-workers work well together and working with residents was more than rewarding. Would have loved to be work there longer but administration seems to play favorites with employees and residents. One situation that may have happened with someone will not be handled the same way with someone else. They give certain residents preferential treatment which I don't believe is fair. No one resident is more important than the next. They all need to be treated equally and giving the same quality of care. Administration was not very accepting of this to the point that I was terminated.
competitive pay, overtime, friendly environment, great co-workers

I no longer enjoy my job. Management is terrible, nobody is held accountable, under staffed, overworked. Scheduler is not doing her job correctly. Medication errors. Staff has attitudes due to being under staffed.

The place is constantly in trouble with the state and always getting inspected management stinks and play favoritism big time .in the year I worked there I saw 3 DONS quit or fired , 4 ADONS , 2 Adminstrators , and the head of the place quit . So there is constant rule changing etc always ahort staffed which means you can do a lot of overtime but you will be burned out and miserable . Most the staff on day shift work well together and most the nurses are nice 3-11not so much . It pays better then most places bc it's a not great place to work at

Honestly, This is my best C.N.A Job I ever had. They have great bonuses and the residence are very reasonable. Co-worker work towards completing their own work. The work load is heavy if you are working on dogwood, but if you are on any other unit work is easy. People call out a lot but that mean more overtime to me. If you work with the company they honestly will work with you.
Nice place to work but hr and management need to be a little more flexible
Cook (Former Employee) – Oxford, PA – January 19, 2017
I worked for ware for over a year and I did not feel appreciated for the work I did for about two months I worked fourteen hours a day seven days a week after my mother became ill and a death of a family member I was terminated . I was the newest employee and I picked up more shifts than anyone there I was verbally and physically assaulted by an employee and nothing was ever done about it .HR has to do a better job at protecting and working with their employee's
Dietary Aide (Current Employee) – Oxford, PA – January 27, 2015
One of the best things about employment at Ware is the amount of work that each day entails. Always having problems to solve, errands to run and people to facilitate makes the work day fly by and by days end, a feeling of a job well done is liable to overcome any good employee. During meal times a dietary aide is expected to create meals for residents, serve the meals and assist in eating and personal preparation of food (cutting meat, thickening liquids, giving first aid when needed). During non-dining hours, the day consists of managing and dispersing dietary items to the nursing staff in the various wards of the community. The bulk of our responsibilities stem from interacting with the residents, taking the time to talk with them and figure out what they need in order to feel satisfied and comfortable. Cultivating a relationship with each resident is an important step in doing the job well and knowing the community that we serve. The nursing staff depends on the dining crew to convey information concerning the eating habits of various residents and to recommend what kind of diet and food items the resident or nurse may want to pursue. This is a large facility with around 300 residents yet the ratio of staff to residents is a bit skewed. There should be more staff members on the floor at all times in able to accommodate our growing community. Because of this shortage, many workers who have been here a long time start to feel resentful and seem to be unwilling to change their work habits and pick up new responsibilities. Many of my co-workers are afflictedmore... with this work ethic and do not share the same enthusiasm for the job as others (including myself). This creates an uneven work load in which a few select employees end up doing the majority of the work while others are content to simply coast through their responsibilities (often relying on others to pick up the slack.) This lackadaisical work ethic is toxic in an environment that is operating twenty-four hours a day yet there are employees at Ware that help to make up for the gap created by some of the less enthusiastic staff members. But, if you are a worker who thrives on being busy and expanding their work duties (like myself), Ware is the kind of place that can teach many new skills to those who are ready to learn. Overall, the interactions with the residents and the nursing staff (many of whom consistently impress with their knowledge and breadth of their compassion) make for an overall rewarding work experience.less
Interacting with Residents from all walks of life, decent food always available at little or no cost, lots of overtime available.
Unenthusiastic work staff, cleanliness needs to become a bigger priority, administration that doesn't have a firm grasp of how the community operates
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Oxford, PA – March 25, 2014
A typical day at work included meal services to the residents who called Ware Presbyterian Village their home. I was responsible for maintaining a healthy productive relationship with these residents and making sure that they looked forward to coming in for their meal. The hardest part of this job is the reality that some residents will pass away, and the most enjoyable part is the rewarding feeling you get from knowing you helped brighten someone's day.
LPN (Former Employee) – Oxford, PA – November 27, 2012
Management not very considerate of employees working long hours with short staff knowing that this is why mistakes happen. I learned alot at Ware and enjoyed working with the team on my unit. Hardest part of job was working 8 to 10 hours straight with team leaders from other carts being able to sit, laugh and joke while sitting around the nursing desk. Most enjoyabe part of job was being with the residents and enjoying being able to see their smiles and apprecition.
good enviroment and setting
most management making comments about people working when they think they should retire
