Horrible place to work
Caregiver (Former Employee) –  Round Rock, TXDecember 11, 2018
Management sucked! If you’re short staff they will make you deal with it instead of coming in. Over heard night shift didn’t even get their 80 hours each pay check because of their rotation of 3 on 3 off. An elderly lady who works there is basically the snitch & she takes pictures of you without you knowing & shows office staff who doesn’t see a problem with it? Residents are great people on the other hand

Awful place to work
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  New Braunfels, TXDecember 5, 2018
I personally didn't work there but know of someone who did. Very horrible place, very disorganized from the beginning, no caring to employees or residents. Very overworked and no help from upper management. They just see dollar signs but don't care about the employees or residents. Do yourself a favor and don't ever work in the New Braunfels facility!

Expectations
Wellness Director (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXNovember 14, 2018
This is a great organization to work for if you are one of the many corporate VP’s. If you are not, prepare yourself for constantly changing expectations, never-ending reports, and a seemingly nonexistent chain of command. If you attempt to affect positive change you will be met with resistance throughout the organization. If your self promotion skills surpass your ability to do your job this is the place for you. Be wary of corporate travel, unless you don’t mind sharing a hotel room with a complete stranger.
Pros
The ability to make a difference in the lives of Seniors
Cons
Long hours, endless On call, Reports/meetings for days

Sad and poor management
Carestaff (Former Employee) –  New BraunfelsOctober 25, 2018
The worst job I have ever had, management is horrible. I don’t feel as if the management really cares for the well-being of the residents. They always have lack of staff on second shift. And if they can’t find coverage they’ll just leave the employees alone to deal with it. They also have housekeeping in the dining room serving food! And they don’t have a nurse 24/7 like they say. And when they hire people they don’t hire anyone who Knows what they’re doing in this kind of work environment.
Pros
Residents and staff members
Cons
Management, dining room, lack of acknowledgment of staff

Faith, Caring, & Family Oriented
Activities (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJanuary 12, 2019
I was promoted from a Civitas managed community 2 years ago and have been treated with the upmost respect. Civitas not only respects their employees but gives them a voice to improve, offers education, team building, & cares for the seniors they are working for. To see the owners of the company walk in to communities and see them interact with the staff and residents is amazing, this is the culture they strive for and expect from their management team and community. Are they tough on employees? sometimes yes, but only because they have high expectations. The Culture at Civitas communities is a passionate, warm environment with high standards.
Not only are they a great company to work for, I wouldn't hesitate in moving a family member to a Civitas building.
Pros
Team Building, Family, Love for Seniors
Cons
High Expectations - if you're not dedicated to take care of seniors

Stress from owners/execs
Management (Former Employee) –  Central, TXOctober 3, 2018
This company has unrealistic expections as well as poor upper management. Many of the buildings are staffed with good people but the owners and VPs are the problem. They have lost sight of what matters to families and their elderly loved ones. They also treat the staff poorly which results in turnover. Their lack of infrastructure while expanding is problematic in all areas of the company.
Pros
Supervisor and coworkers
Cons
Corporate attitudes

Very Difficult place to work
nurse (Former Employee) –  nenew mexicoSeptember 13, 2018
Little training and help from the management offices. The building was a mess ! Staffing issues, care issues and management was only concerned abouit reports. Hours spent trying to hire staff and get shifts covered just to provide state mandated ratios. Issues with cash flow and money to hire staff.. Promises from Civitas to help fix issues never materialized. Civitas constantly looking for someone to blame for internal issues of management. Administrative alliances change daily.. Stressful and not rewarding place to work.
Pros
care staff
Cons
management. adminstration

The company you have always dreamed of!!
Operations Associate (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXSeptember 13, 2018
Typical day at work is busy as you will never have a dull moment. The hardest part of working for Civitas? Nothing. If you do what you're supposed to and communicate you will never find it hard. You are given the tools you need but if not, all you have to do is ask.

I applied for different roles within Civitas because I knew I wanted to work there. After almost two years I finally got an opportunity and within 6 months I was promoted!

Civitas means Community and that's exactly what you feel when you walk in the door. You are greeted everyday by the CEO and/or founders. You get that sense of passion from top down and makes you feel like you are part of something great.

Very low pay for what is expected of you
Medication Aide (Former Employee) –  Athens, TXJuly 25, 2018
We take care of the residents needs daily. Receive little training, giving prescriptions medications with only a few days training. Don't get extra pay for becoming a medication aide. The some people calling in or come in late all the time. Management gets mad at the people that won't/can't come in on their days off to cover the call in shifts. OK if you HAVE to have a job to pay bills for a short time but all the good people leave, too many lazy workers who do nothing but sit around.
Pros
The residents
Cons
Pay, hard to get time off

Not a place to if you are serious about your career.
Caregiver (Former Employee) –  Burleson, TXSeptember 3, 2018
Not very pleasant. Management was more like being at high school, support in words only, not in actions. No timely job reviews, stressed out co-workers,

Terrible company with inexperienced management. Benefits and pay are terrible. Especially the ones that are not owned by civitas but are managed. No benefits and the treat you like a step child.

Get team, Great Culture
Manager (Current Employee) –  Dallas-Fort Worth, TXNovember 28, 2017
This company really works heard to grow folks from within. They have several long tenured employees who started as caregivers and are now property managers. They are privately owned, and the ownership group are also the leaders of the company. The "family" environment is what I love about working here. When I do a good job, they are the first to congratulate me! Love this company.
Pros
Great Culture and Growth Opportunities
