Dietary Aide/Cook (Former Employee) – Chadron, NE – May 30, 2017
They blatantly lie to your face, saying you can get full time when they don't "have the hours". And having Health care is a joke, it doesn't matter if you are registered as full time, it all is based of the actual hours to work. Don't get me started on pay, it's a pathetic amount.
They take the smallest things and makes them worst than they are. Miss rolling one silverware for the next shift; written up. Going over your time even though your whole job depends on the care aides and CNAs doing their job as well as waiting on the residents. They don't understand how long it takes to do things in the kitchen. I gave them a chance even though all I heard was negative things, don't do it. Just stay away.
everything. you only get half hour break for morning shift. pay, lieing, benefits.
This place is horrible. No or miscommunication. The residents suffer. Always short staffed. Cutting hours despite being short staff. Administration don't help out and DON will have other nursing management work on the floor while she works 5-6 hours a day and never on the floor. Corporate management has their favorites but only cares about the bottom dollar and not the residents. I could go on and on. State needs to come in and shut the place down it's that awful.
Administration (Former Employee) – Wyoming – January 25, 2017
Question an abuse allegation?? Get terminated! Need to look elsewhere!! Started out good but then got to know the back stabbing which starts in Edina, not everyone at welcov is horrible but as long as you don't ask questions you are good with your job. Over worked and under paid staff.
Director of Nursing (Former Employee) – Iowa – November 11, 2016
Corporate Management plays favorites. They let good managers that care and make a difference go. People are hired that are young and inexperienced that don't know how to manage. Residents are nice. The corporate needs to look at why good people are let go and managers that are awful are kept
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Rapid City, SD – November 8, 2016
I worked for this company for 7 months at fountain springs and never received the pay increase I was promised upon hire. If you are ill you have to find your own replacement or bring your sick into the building (around the residents) and be sent home. If you don't comply with that you get written up even if you bring in a doctors note. All the management is nursing staff and are supposed to assist on the floor if their short staffed for a day, and I never once saw that even when we only had one aid per hallway. There was also instances they didn't help when we had one aid on two halls. They do not care about the well-being of their residents unless family complains or is present. They only care about the money and making themselves LOOK good. I would never bring a member of my family here!
I was offered a job at welcov as an LPN and I accepted. I was lied to about the amount of hours I would be working and also about the unit I would be working on. I was suppose to be full time but when my schedule came out I was only scheduled for 48 hours in a 2 week period. When I was there we were way understaffed yet hours were being cut. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone!
MDS Coordinator (Former Employee) – St. Paul, MN – September 10, 2016
The company is understaffed and overworked with no training given when you start. They let people go without any written warnings or training on how to improve in your job performance. They escort you out the door without letting you take your personal belongings with your from your office. The facility is filled with drug addicts societies rejects so don't place your loved ones here.
CMA/CNA (Current Employee) – Sturgis, SD – August 18, 2016
People come in and expect this and it's not like this at all. You do not work closely with a nurse a majority of time you have to figure it out on ur own. You have 34 residents and 2 staff members. High turn over rate for staff and residents alike. Management has no idea what their staff does on a day to day basis. Over all not a happy place to work.
I wish my name was not associated with this company.
RN (Current Employee) – Casper, WY – June 29, 2016
A heartbreaking experience. Knowing our residents are not getting the care they need is horrible. Requests for assistance from upper management yielded no results. The equipment needed to take care of residents is not in working order or not available at all.
Worked there for over a year. Same as most ltc, heads in beds and low quality. There had been some turn around for a little while, but they fired the DON and the administrator. Now it is back to working under horrible conditions. Looking elsewhere, will never go back.
Maintenance Supervisor (Current Employee) – Red Lodge, MT – March 2, 2016
I enjoy that my job is stable. I never worry that I will be out of work. I love the community I work in and my coworkers are awesome. I have the freedom to do things the way I want to which is really what I look for in a company.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Ogallala, NE – March 2, 2016
I really enjoyed my time working at Indian Hills Healthcare Community by Welcov Healthcare in Ogallala, NE. The team environment was awesome and I enjoyed the work I got to do. I wish I could've stayed longer but had to relocate because of family issues. I would recommend working here to anyone!
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Sioux City, IA – February 25, 2016
I really enjoy the level of care we provide it's not just a typical "nursing home" I am able to put my skills to use. I started with Welcov as a CNA and now I am a RN so the growth opportunities are awesome.
Horrible place to work. No communication. Lousy hours. Poor management.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Sioux City, IA – January 31, 2016
Out of total frustration I ended my employment with Wel-Cov. All new hires were given initial wages much higher than what I was earning after two years. There is no management or chance of advancement in this organization. Compensation and benefits are below the area norm and they have great difficulty in keeping existing staff.
Anonymous (Current Employee) – Anonymous – January 29, 2016
Welcov continues to grow and is a stable work environment. They offer great work life balance. There are changes with the growth, but they are good changes to make improvements and efficiencies. The management team is focused on doing what is right for the employees and the company.
Team environment - like a family
Pay is based on long term care so is not always competitive
Corporation only cares about themselves, not residents or employees
RN (Former Employee) – Casper, WY – January 29, 2016
Administration is horrible including administrator who knows nothing about nursing homes and what it takes to care for these residents. Uses out of state pharmacy which leaves patients without meds including pain medication for days/weeks. Scheduler is extremely rude. Wages are the lowest in this town. Always short staffed and use med aides so they don't have to have as many nurses. Too much responsibility for one nurse to be responsible for 65 residents.
Residents who live there
Current administrator, pay, staff or lack of, cannot take care of patients properly with lack of supplies and care given.
