LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – December 29, 2018
Nurses take too many smoke breaks, dont sign out narcotics, and leave you on floor alone during orientation. Very unorganized and understaffed. They hold in services at the most inconvenient times and take all the nurses off the units. I really hoped this place would be a good fit but everything about it just sucked.
LPN Charge Nurse (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – December 28, 2018
HORRIBLE Management ! Not supportive when there are issues or concerns. You truly feel just like a number. I had high hopes that everything that was appealing to me at the time of hire would stand true !

beth Sholom use to be a great place to work. but now all the old staff are gone. And now they're under new management its a total flop now. beth Sholom home has just been renovated for about a year now so it looks really nice in there. but the new nursing staffing person sucks, and the pay rate is horrible they don't want to give their employees any raises. there excuse for that is they over budget. don't work here go somewhere else.

I have worked at Beth Sholom for 2 years. I have seen people come and go. Some are missed and some needed to leave as they were not good team mates. Yes you will work hard at Beth Sholom. But you will have fun and the residents are great!

If you are a hard working person and apply yourself this is a great place to work with opportunities for advancement, co workers are friendly and helpful. The Home has been beautifully updated, the Residents and Families are great to work with.
Executive Assistant to the CEO (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – November 13, 2017
I have been with Beth Sholom for 5 months working directly for the CEO. I have enjoyed my time at Beth Sholom and look forward to many years to come. The CEO has been one of the best managers I have had in my career and I have learned a lot from him in a short period of time. His communication style is direct however he is very fair and consistent in his approach.
I have enjoyed working directly with the Board of Directors, Administration, HR, and nursing staff. I find everyone to be very professional and willing to help if you need it. The families at Beth Sholom are also very friendly and I enjoy getting to know them.
Activities Coordinator (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – August 24, 2013
A typical day at work I plan and do activities to stimulate and promote social interaction with elderly people also with people with dementia. I have learned how to work as team and also enhanced my social skills. This job isnt really hard because it fun.

The lure of a nice building drew me and then reality set in. The company culture is not as nice as the decor and it all starts at the top. An assisted living environment always has challenges but dealing with residents is one thing, now dealing with the leadership or lack there of is another. Look elsewhere if you are serious about your career and want to enjoy your job.
Nice new buildng.
Por company culture, not a positive work environment.

One of the worse places to work as Nursing Professional: - Management isn't supportive - Extremely understaffed - Management doesn't help/no teamwork on the floor. - Negative environment starting from the CEO throwing tantrums in front of family and staff to underhanded bully practices by Don/Admin/Human Resources - Unsanitary - Lowest paying facility in the area/no incentives - Unprofessional, unsafe, hazardous working conditions
Non-productive, poor managment skills, absolutely no team work.
LPN (Former Employee) – Richmond – February 12, 2015
Your typical day at work will start with no staff, and your DON will bully you all day long; Unprofessional, knows nothing about management or her patients and could care less about her staff; not supportive at all!!! The pay is horrible as well as the benefits and your co-workers do not believe in team work. There was nothing enjoyable about working at Beth Sholom.
