We have a mandated door, the RCA & Med techs seem to mostly having to stop and answer the door for visitors. May seem like nothing but office people that closes should help more with the door. 2nd shift only has 2 on staff that door is going to be next to the top of leaving. #1 Not enough staff on 2nd. 3rd The pay is Not economical. Many residents that are Memory Care roaming, very very confused etc..not fair to the residents that are AL. No Advance in this community. Should we staff be heard working here could be alright.

There's no teamwork with management. Too messy to be a large corporation.

For more money. The pay sucks and there is no rhyme or reason as to pay scale. I’ve been there 7 years. Got a 35 cent increase last year. Newer employees doing same job are hired with higher pay. That’s because there’s no union!

I would leave based on how the management, HR, conduct their actions as the act as double standard staff. If you aren't a kiss up to management then you aren't in their circle. I see how things are ran and it's pitiful for running the facility the way they treat their workers. I am glad I am not longer working for Brookdale. I have nothing positive to say about this company!

Regional DDO believe everything the ED says and because they are friends and don't listen to the complaints about what's really going on in the community.

Management sits in their office behind closed doors with blinds closed. They are unapproachable and bark or bite if spoken to.
