DINING ROOM SERVER (Current Employee) – Williamsburg, VA – January 25, 2017
The residents are great to be around with. They make you laugh, they are there to cheer you on or just to bring you out of the dumps. The management could much improved within the work place as far as scheduling enough staff and/or having the knowledge of what's going on with the residents and work staff. Sometimes, the hardest part to do is to leave on time because there so much to do when trying to set the dining room for the breakfast shift and still be able to do other side work.

Then this would be the place for you. Administration is nice to your face and not so nice behind your back. Training provided isn't good at all. You're basically thrown on the floor without having been oriented to the floor you're working. However, the patient ratio IS one of the best. Support from upper management is lacking. If you're not one of those kiss butt type of people, you would not be welcome here.
The most enjoyable part of the job is definitely the residents. The Landing itself isn't a bad place to work, but the Health and Rehab part of it is a different story altogether.
Pay is very competitive, and the benefits are excellent. But, if you are the type of person that has a conscience, this wouldn't be the place for you.
So many current workers that have been there for quite some time are unhappy. The question is to ask "why"?

I worked for williamsburg landing for a total of 3 years! The first time I was working day shift for two years due to family emergency I had to stop working and take care of family. I then came back and worked night shift for 1 year which I absolutely loved. 5 stars all the way around!

Note: There is not one person, place or thing that is considered perfect; but, Williamsburg Landing, for the most part, provided me with an adequate working environment, great benefits, exceptional residents and amicable staff.
Medical Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Williamsburg, VA – March 14, 2017
I make appointments, scan, make phone calls, room patients. I've learned a lot over the year that I have been here. The management is okay, its a big turn over rate though. My job isn't really hard. I enjoy the most is interacting with the residents.
Jack of all trades (Current Employee) – VA – December 31, 2016
It's a job. If you are new, have to wait 90 days until your benefits( sick/vacation) kick in. Also, if you are in certain departments, you are required to work holidays unless you take a vacation day which is a catch-22 if you are a new employee. And the Landing's version of paid holidays requires the employees to use vacation days in order to have your holidays paid for. Pay is decent. Co-workers are nice although they seem like they are hiding something or brooding. And the veteran employees seem clueless about new policies. In the department I work, there seems to be no printed department sop and communication is lackluster. We just wing it. In addition, if there are too many employees in your department and not enough work, we just sit around trying to find something to do or waiting for the manager to start sending employees home which is rare. Still, too many chiefs and not enough Indians. And as many have said, most of the time, the residents are wonderful, however a few can be trying as age related problems have set in.
Meals discounted, decent pay, health plan, residents, gym.
30 minute unpaid break, holiday pay, no 3 day holidays, lackluster communication, no sop.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Williamsburg, VA – October 2, 2016
A typical day at work is easy for me. The reason I'm stating this is because I work on third shift. The resident is sleep or watching television. I am in a Retirement home in Assisted Living where the Residents can do for their self and I assisted five residents with a little of there Activity Of Daily care.
No free lunch but we can get the food for a discount.
Food Service (Former Employee) – Williamsburg VA – November 3, 2015
if you value your self worth, do NOT work for this company. crooked management, half-assed administrators. they have a zero value placed on workers. the residents are AMAZING but not worth the trouble you'll go through. worked here for awhile between real jobs and finally had to cut the cord and quit. I feel sorry everyday for those left working there. they deserve better!!!!
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Former Employee) – Williamsburg, VA – June 8, 2015
The facility is very nice and clean. The staff are very kind to the residents. The food is good for the clients and staff members. The facility is a nice place to work overall. The workload was not to heavy so you could give excellent care to the clients.
Good benefitsand work environment
Not much room for advancement as it is a small facility.
