I am looking to expand my knowledge and be a team leader i am unable to do so here at Westminster Canterbury. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing all those i am able to help in rehab get stronger everyday.

Not a whole lot of opportunity for advancement
Project Aid (Former Employee), Lynchburg, VAApril 14, 2015
Pros: benefits
Cons: 7-21 day work shifts
I worked a year and a half waiting for an opportunity to interview for the position I stated I was interested in the day I interviewed. I came to realize that I made a mistake. I left a job making 11.75 an hour with 20 hours of overtime a week in a field I could have expanded outward with. When you get a position with this company the main objective is to keep you in a position and not promote you. The work grinds you down as a person. I worked seven days straight on an almost weekly basis. I will never recommend this facility to somebody looking to build a career. Turnover rate is obsurd

Wait Staff (Current Employee), Richmond, VAApril 2, 2015
Love to help others. Great customer service. Also love to meet new people. Sometimes it get difficult at work but overall I enjoy every bit of it. I enjoy seeing others happy and to walk around knowing that I helped them and it was a success. Management, co-workers and other employees are all wonderful and respectful. Working with this company has made me more stronger and reliable as a young woman. Also my customer service skills has improved and became more stronger than ever.

CNA at Westminster Canterbury
Certified Nurse's Assistant (Current Employee), Richmond, VAApril 1, 2015
After working at Westminster Canterbury for the past year, there have been some things that I have come to like and there are some things that I could live without.
At Westminster Canterbury, they talk a good game and bring you in believing that you were lucky to be hired and that the environment and staff are pristine. This is a lie. They will pretty much hire anybody off of the street as long as you have your CNA.
If you are full time they WILL NOT work with your school schedule, you must work as PRN in order for them to be able to work with your schedule. However, if you are PRN, don't expect to get anywhere close to a decent amount of hours.

Save yourself the hassle if you are applying. It's not worth it. Places like this are a dime a dozen.

Higher pay than most facilities
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), Lynchburg, VAMarch 20, 2015
The PTO does not accrue very fast and the management is scarce. they do not keep staff, as they pay limbo people much more than they pay regular full time employees.

Westminster Canterbury is a nice company. It has all stages of life that needs health/medical assistance. There is all types of stores for shopping and lots of musical events. There is a theater inside, pharmacy, clinic open 24 hours, and a daycare that helps employees and is open to the public.

Great team of co workers and management staff. Each day provided a variety of task and assignments as residents came and went. The hardest part of the job was loosing people that became special to me during my every day interaction with them.

High Energy and productive environment
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee), Richmond, VAOctober 4, 2014
Pros: convenient day care center
Cons: 12 hour shifts
My experience with this company is one of highs and lows. First few years it was a wonderful place to work, Busy all day but close relationships with residents and their families was enjoyable, staff was happy and helpful toward one another, But after the 12 hour shifts started people became burned out, tired and exhausted which leads to irritability. Many staff members have left and brand new staff are now there trying to learn the process,

No tips for Bartenders
Banquet Bartender (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VAAugust 26, 2014
Pros: nice old folks
Cons: not allowed to receive tips while bartending
I didn't get into bartending for the hourly rate. This place doesn't allow bartenders to receive tips and the hourly rate does not at all make up for it. Maybe for an entry level bartender, this might be nice.
