Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Saint George, UT – January 14, 2019
Start of the day is typical for all SNFs very busy then it tapers off later in the day, usually. If an aide calls in other aides are not willing to cover as there is no incentive to come in on days off. When this happens the nurse is required to pick up the slack, making it a very challenging day. The same is true for nurses that call in. Again no incentive to sacrifice day off to cover for ill or absent nurse, so those that are there have to take up the slack making for a difficult shift. Administration is aware of the issue but are very resistant to make necessary changes such as bonuses for emergency coverage, or less expensive insurance. No flexibility, if you disagree with management on job description/responsibilities and you are hired/promised to do one job, you may be required to take on several more job titles, if you are unwilling to do so, you will find yourself without a job real quick.
Working in pods of 12 residents. Usually not more than one pod per RN on day shift, and two for night shift.
Often short staffed, mostly for CNA's. Poor, very expensive, health care plan.

A great company to work with who believes in providing the best care for the residents that live in the Veterans home, as well as ensuring that their employees provide the best, highest quality of care to the residents.
Director of Talent Acquisition and Retention (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – November 20, 2018
I work at the corporate building and everyone here is always in a good mood. It makes the work atmosphere so much better. The management here is very professional and always greets you in the hallway. By far the best work environment I have ever worked in.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – North canyon Utah – October 29, 2018
The worst place I worked in, they always have low staff , and make us work days that aren’t on our schedule, state comes a lot and they tell you to say you aren’t under staff when they don’t do anything about it , they have 4 CNAs work often, it’s stressful , it’s really not worth it , males without a Cna we’re getting paid more than someone who had a CNA license . CNA coordinator never has time to listen to your problems same with the administrator.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Brigham City, UT – October 15, 2018
I loved working at Willow Glen in Brigham city! I made lifelong friends and loved the residents. This was a very emotionally rewarding place to work. Only issues were when you have to work understaffed, the patients don't get the care they deserve and you are under major stress when understaffed.
Pioneer care center (Former Employee) – Brigham city, utah – September 25, 2018
The most stressful job I’ve ever worked, you’d think it’d be because of the actual work i do? No, its because of the staff they are competing to be the better one so they lie on each other's nAmes. My co-workers seen i was doing my job a lot better than they were and they got so jealous they started going to the “boss” and lied about me. She took their word and instead of asking me first she accused me of neglecting my job and said i need to do better so i said okay and left 2 weeks later because i would get talked to badly from certain people that work their. So NO i do not recommend this place of work.
LPN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Monroe, LA – August 2, 2018
Only worked with this company as a nurse for a short period of time. I worked an evening shift so it wasn't good for my family life. They do offer a weekend options work schedule which I think is awesome for someone in school or have other things that they have during the week
Maintenance Assistant (Current Employee) – North Salt Lake, UT – August 1, 2018
Stay clear of this company. Illegal comment’s made by one individual in upper management. If you are in the facilities field you have to make a choice of meeting the needs of the residents, staff and building or keeping up with the required administrative documentation. I wouldn’t recommend anyone that is going to work in the facilities field working for this company
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Merced, CA – July 25, 2018
Working here was very stressful. I worked here for 2 years and it drove me almost insane. I was lifting while pregnant even though i had a drs note not to. And i was over worked and underpaid. Especially for the toxic work place.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Madera, CA – July 8, 2018
i start my job by getting report from each resident, make sure resident is in the facility,we do hydration,take vital signs from some residents,then toileting them if something seems different in a resident notify to the nurse,i start doing my charting,do check up every 15 minutes and keep doing charting,we do toileting rounds every 2 hours, at the last round we dress up some resident and get then up also,last round is the hardest for me, because we have to do other things depends on some residents health and i enjoy when my job is complete.
Admissions director (Former Employee) – Utah – May 22, 2018
Management is slow to do anything to improve the culture of the company. They offer little PTO so within your first two years you maybe have 1 week of vacation. The pay is minimal compared to the competitors in the area. Strong corporate oversight on everything. If you want to feel belittled in a company and never be appreciated this is the job for you
Slow paced, very political, nepotism is a big problem
Employee (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – May 7, 2018
There are a lot of good people that work here. I enjoyed my time overall working with my coworkers. The management has no respect for the smaller employees. Job turnover is very high. There are a lot of things that need to be improved such as PPs, compliance, HR......
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Millcreek, UT – April 28, 2018
The residents were wonderful, staff was very down to earth for the most part, however staffing was not optimal, and often had to heavy of resident assignments, they do not work with schedules very well.
