Busy, negative energy and not a comfortable work environment.
Enjoying the residents.
Adjusting to money hungry Management
It was ok. Being a med tech carries a lot of responsibility, but if you know what you're doing, you just need to know how to manage your time wisely. During downtime it is best to ask the caregivers if they need help, or check in on the residents and ensure room cleanliness and organization.
Its wonderful great ppl to work with the residents are wonderful. You might have occasionally lazy ppl come on board but dont worry they tend to fade out. Atria is very proactive and rewards employees with bonuses. It's a very good place to work at.
Stressful trying keep residents happy.
Sales and Marketing and Nursing keeps them in the dark and lying about what they really offer in their communities.
I started the day every day with a 30 minutes review meeting that included all directors. After I went into my office and spent the next 8-10 hours making sales calls,setting appointments and doing tours. Even though my job description required outside sales visits, it wasn’t until the very end of my stay that the company said I could do that. No sales calls were to skilled nursing. I would make 5 to 7 phone calls, texts and emails per inquiry because it was demanded of me to follow up with these people in this manner. I have a lot of no answers on the phone as a result of this. Getting lunch was often difficult. With manager in my title, they expected me to work 10 to 12 hours a day. There were some days it was warranted but mostly not.
