Not a bad place to work, management can show favoritism but for the most part very little to complain about. Nurses can be great or need an attitude check but talking to the nurses is not a requirement. Great wellness center that is open for use by all staff members.
I worked for this company for over a year. It started out as a good place to work so they could get you in there and keep you. They are always understaffed making it difficult for the aides to work fairly. After several months of being there they finally started showing their colors. If you are not a favorite they will be dirty to you. If you are not willing to work extra they will be dirty to you. The pay is also the lowest of any facility around the area.
the dietary department works very hard on a daily basis and is the lowest paid department in the company. There is so much turn over in the department because no one cares about their job because they are having to get second jobs to make it. The pay is horrible and they will not work with you if you have a death in the family or if an emergency comes up, they will deduct points from your record that could cause you to be fired.
HOUSEKEEPER (Former Employee) – Burlington, NC – April 12, 2016
In the morning, we would clean the clubhouse, upstairs and down, do the laundry, then we would head out to the apartments. We would clean 5 on a typical day. Management was kind and always looked after you. I liked my co-workers. The hardest part was when we would have to clean 9 apartments in a 4 hour period if one of us was going to be out of town. I loved working with the residents and getting to know their life story and making them smile.
Needs more room for advancement, and better competitive salaries. In my opinion it is very easy going and family friendly, a great place to work while in school the scheduler works well with availability as well as management.
Med Tech (Former Employee) – Spartanburg, SC – February 25, 2016
I worked at White Oak Estates for nearly 10 years. I really enjoyed the insurance and the PTO. I loved the residents that I cared for. Overall it was a great place to work but not nearly enough money for a fulltime job. Maybe a part time? You worked holidays with no holiday pay, ugh! You worked in any kind of weather. Your daily job duties for everyone was to help in the kitchen such as serving food, helping assist residents with daily living, shower, clean rooms, give meds, play bingo, take residents out to eat, etc. You also help prep food and assist with activities as well. I must say you get to know the residents fairly well. Sometimes your job duties also include taking residents on doctors appointment. While I was there the management staff was pretty fair for the most part. I just couldn't afford to make it off of that little pay. The hardest part of the job was accepting the pay and working holidays and every other weekend. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know the residents and having activity time with them, making sure they were well taken care of.
Not climate control, friendly environment, learned cpr, how to give medicine
working holidays, and every other weekend, no room for growth
Dietary Aid (Former Employee) – North Carolina – February 5, 2016
It was a great place to work at. The management was great. I got along with everybody and it felt like a family. There really wasn't a hard part to the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was just seen the smiles on the patient's faces everyday.
LPN (Former Employee) – Newberry, SC – December 14, 2015
I actually loved this job. I learned a lot working at WOM. From the management to the staff is willing to help out with the residents. The facility is kept very clean and all staff is very professional.
lpn (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – November 20, 2015
I was very pleased with the training and orientation because they really allowed you to learn the typical every day routine work that occurs on your unit. I was fortunate to have been hired after doing a clinical rotation during nursing school therefore, I was already familiar.
short breaks horrible enviorment the building was crumbling
The most enjoyable part of my job was my relationship with all of the residents there. It's like having a second family. There was always extra shifts available if you needed overtime. The nurses and other CNA's made employment there feel like fun and not a job.
