They go through more mangers in the tri city area than anywhere. Where do they find some of these ED's? They need to clean house with some upper management to being a fresh perspective on the direction Brookdale is going. Residents are awesome! Management needs to listen to its employees.

After working at Brookdale for ten years, I had a TIA due to stress. Seemed like the company only cared what the place looked like. So they made improvements of the facility numerous times. But, didn't want to spend money to staff appropriately. Short staff. Would write you up if you didn't take a lunch break. Which would be hard to do. Due to not having enough staff. It was so busy we had to wait to the end of our shift to do patient charting. If we stayed over to do charting, we would be threatened that we would be written up. And if we didn't do our charting we would get written up. Some places might feed thier employees, however Brookdale would rather throw food in trash before feeding the staff. The adminstration was nice as well as the nurses and cna's. It was corporate that was horrible. I had put my two weeks in. The last day I worked and walked out after my shift. I felt such a relief. Miss my residents and co-workers. They were very sweet.

Extremely underpaid for the work done. Getting the same pay as a fast food job but with 100 times more stress and expectation. Always understaffed which leads to constantly being called in which leads to burnout

There is NO team work especially if you are a new employee. I have been at Brookdale Battle Creek mi for only 2 months and have considered quitting many times. Med techs do NOT help at all. You are always told what you are doing wrong never what you are doing right . No positive feed back. Training is ridiculous. Pretty much no training.

Need more staff. Bottom line. Pay for some is so-so. Some managers are overworked so much one had a stroke in front of me.
Some complaints here are legit, but a lot are discrunteled former employees who were let go for many reasons. All buildings need staff badly.
