Resident Care Aide (Former Employee) –  Sandy Springs, GAJanuary 24, 2019
I’ve been with this company awhile now they have a High turnover rate. All employees left for better paying jobs. For this area the PAY sucks! Trust in order to get a “nice check” you’ve got to work over and work all your off days. When it’s time for your raise you get 3% which is 28cents so you’d be making $11.28 The DRCS and some of the nurses don’t know how to talk to the staff you’re treated like your nothing. This is a nursing home not an assisted living. Heavy lifting WorkLoad over load. Trust this isn’t the place... no way for moving up in company btw you have to have a Bachelors degree(ikr) to teach seniors elementary stuff.
Pros
Just a job
Cons
Work load and PAY

Felt bored working here
LVN (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaSeptember 22, 2018
No room for career growth. Will accept a resident even if they are unfit to stay. Environment feels competitive, with no sense of team work. Have a set of policies and procedures but no one really follows it. Hated the fact the I felt like a glorified pill pusher cause there’s really no chance to learn anything there. Work feels very routinary and boring.
Pros
Pretty good starting salary
Cons

Believe me when I say “The most horrible place to work”
Caregiver (Former Employee) –  Westlake, TXJuly 28, 2018
The job itself is not what was hard but dealing with the most toxic employees ever. Management was horrible soon as someone reported you for the littlest thing you’d be on your way out. If your a caregiver I wouldn’t recommend coming to this company to work it’s stressful, toxic and it’ll leave you wondering why you even applied there and other thing, the compensation is not worth it

Very Stressfull Environment
Caregiver/Personal Assistant (Former Employee) –  Suwanee, GAMay 17, 2018
There was a lack of training and management expected you to be ready to start the job within a few days. Training was mostly done on a computer in a conference room with individuals coming in and out. Very unprofessional. Spent most of training discussing dress code, being on time and how to call out which were all things that could have been read at home. The pay is not enough to live on especially with the amount of work that is expected. Spent more time cleaning the main bathrooms than spending with the residents. The only best part of the job were the residents. They truly wanted companionship and not just housekeepers. If the pay was reasonable, I would have stayed at the job. Its not enough to live on.
Pros
Residents
Cons
Salary, Training, and management

Very poor leadership
Caregiver (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNNovember 5, 2018
The residents were my only reason for showing up everyday. The geriatric work life is a great experience anywhere you might work. But at this place The managers deliberately show favoritism which is the only way you can grow in the company. And shouldn't be called assisted living, some residents need more professional care that management doesn't explain during interviews and hiring.
Pros
Residents are great
Cons
Poor management, pay should be more

overworked underpaid
Caregiver (Former Employee) –  Burbank, CAJanuary 24, 2019
have to have a good heart to be a caregiver. I didn't mind the duties as a caregiver but this is an assisted living facility and you did more than just assist, it was full on care. it was difficult as a night shift person because we were very understaffed for the amount of work you are given. Ill make it clear, elderly people hardly sleep! and Day shift people always have a problem with night shift. If your co-workers don't like you, no one will help you. very competitive and jealous staff, will always complain about you.
Cons
people will complain about you

Belmont was a great place to work and fun
Caregiver (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 31, 2019
Belmont Village is a great place for employment and you have team players i wouldn't mind retiring from there you have so much fun and the resident are very good and the family is also nice. You can learn alot there to get advanced to the next level. the hardest part of working there is when one of the resident that you were close to passes away. the management are wonderful and understanding and very helpful to solve any issues. I love Belmont Village @ West University.

I loved working with the residents
Resident Assistant (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 6, 2018
Ok so, working at Belmont for me was a great experience when it came to the residents. Typical work day was very slow because in between starting shift and waiting for dinner (residents), there was absolutely nothing to do after collecting laundry.

If you plan on working here, my advice is stay to yourself, don’t share your business, do your 8 and skate. I witnessed so many coworkers bite each others backs out to save themselves. Also, don’t engage in any gossip.

This place has a high turn over rate but that won’t change until management figure out what’s going on. Maybe one on one meetings with the resident assistants (PALS). Talk to them, figure out what should change to make Belmont Vil a better place.

Overall if you enjoy working with elders, than you will definitely receive a rewarding feeling after completing your duties. But please do not be fooled by “assisted living”. This is a nursing home and none of the residents are independent as they say during orientation.

Not organized management
PAL Personal Assistant Liason (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CADecember 10, 2018
After you passed the interview they had intense training for newly hired employees. You will have one week training on the floor and your co Wörkèr will guide you how to deal with different kinds of situation / case of the residents . Working in Belmont is ok good health insurance but giving minimum daily wages . The people / Co Wörkèr hard to handle . No cooperation within your co workers and it’s always competition
Pros
Free meals - working with memory care
Cons
30 minutes Meal break from our time - no pay

Not nearly as good as it should or could be...
Caregiver/Personal Assistant (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAAugust 20, 2018
Very low pay for such hard, selfless work!! Management is out to lunch, and doesn't know what is going on most of the time. Seniors living here pay top dollar and do not get their money's worth, while workers are grossly undervalued.
Pros
Seniors are Fun
Cons
Coworkers are Lazy and Bossy

Something,would make you think twice regarding "high turn-over".
Caregiver (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TX (oak lawn )areaAugust 30, 2018
As, new employee you end-up noticing different things. But the look of the facility can fool you. You can be the one that enjoy ,helping other's. Even ,like if they were mother and father in a place like that. But , some are there just for a paycheck. Not,really caring or passionate to other's look to care for there love one's. Sometimes, the company miss the whole picture of service besides the money they receive for care. And, not notice the "caregiver" are the one's with big responsibilities of the role .Of ,standard care the other's are behind the scene's with great /decent pay. More, higher pay makes the difference to determine the stay on long jeopardy to company and other's. Then, it want be just a paycheck .That ,someone really care's for their 'employee's', that could turn around the"high- turn over". Knowing, from the "new applicants" how they feel to stay or just "everyone".Making changes ,to have long career not just a"job/pay check".. You can be the one that care's but everyone should in this profession..
Pros
Enjoy, knowing that you can help someone that needs it. Knowing, one day has you get older that it could be, you.
Cons
Not, the best "caregiver', upper staff" . Not, good pay to people with bigger role to keep company thriving..

Not a good place to work
Human Resources Manager (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXSeptember 9, 2018
Belmont is really a bad place to work. The mangers and executives are very prideful and not not believe the employee has a voice until you make a certain amount of money. Manager knocked hire ups and so forth. Just not recommendable the way they treat their staff.

Uninvolved management. Feel like a selling point rather than asset.
Enrichment Leader (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 25, 2017
In my position, there is little to no room for advancement, not counting small yearly pay-raises. Seems to be relatively high turnover, even though the location is a little desperate to hold onto employees. While I realize my position has real benefits for residents, I feel that to management I am just another aspect they can market to potential residents. Given budgets and tools to succeed, but if nobody complains, nothing changes. Requires self-motivation and no desperate need for career advancement.
Pros
Free lunches, clean facilities
Cons
Strange management philosophy, confusing priorities
