CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Cañon City, CO – July 18, 2018
The management gets paid very well. If you work the floor dont expect to get paid enough to live and pay bills. Management will also pay staff with less experience more than if you have experience. If you are a newby not a bad place, but if you know what you are worth as a nurse or aide stay far away.......oh and they will tell you raises are coming, but it is a lie.
I have worked for Five Star for many years. In the serval years I’ve been there I’ve seen numerous employees come and go due to treatment from the management. Management stays in the offices and very seldom interact with residents. This facility has serval cats and one dog, the management team cares for the animals more than employees and even residents. Many residents have complained to me of that specific issue and management turns a blind eye. Pay is unfair and you definitely don’t get payed enough for what they ask of you here.
Free lunches, the residents
pay, benefits, treatment of employees, lack of supervision when needed, self-centered management, unfair hours, unattainable work goals
Bad Management, Drama, Poor Teamwork and respect of fellow employees
Nursing (Former Employee) – North Platte, NE – July 3, 2018
Had a very bad experience with this company that almost cost me my license due to retaliation issues. The company does not back its employees. The job was a toxic atmosphere, do not get me wrong as with any job you have good coworkers and bad ones, it was just my experience to have enough bad ones to ruin it all.
I would never recommend this job unless management changed
Housekeeping/Maintenance (Former Employee) – Bowie, MD – June 18, 2018
The people were nice and employees but the problem that made this job stressful was the management. They are very unorganized and had me working doing free maintenance work promising me I could be promoted to Maintenance Manager. So I ran like a chicken with his head cut off all day every day doing housekeeping and maintenance both with only pay for housekeeping. I was told I had to do this to prove my self to be worthy of the position, This includes me installing Toilets, some pipes under a sink, painting rooms, and wall paper removal, among other things. When time for position to be filled he said I wasn't qualified because the first application I filled out was for Housekeeping and not Maintenance. So I said then I would like to file an application for the position and I was denied Because he said he needed me in housekeeping. STEER CLEAR of this Facility

Program Services Coordinator (Current Employee) – New Jersey – May 22, 2018
I have been working for the community for approximately 8 years we are like a family here. We get to know each and everyone of our residents and families. The residents at Mt. Arlington Senior Living are happy and think that this was the best discussion they and their family made.
Dietary Aide and Conceirge (Current Employee) – Sewell, NJ – May 19, 2018
This is my favorite job that I have ever had, the employees are amazing, you all become a family. The residents are very caring and understanding and are always there to listen and help you. Although I loved working here the pay wasn't that great which is why after a year and a half I am looking for a new job.
Payroll/Benefits Coordinator (Former Employee) – Newton, MA – May 14, 2018
It was a very good experience to work for such a big company. I was in charge of processing payroll for employees through out the nation. Also to respond benefits concern and promoting safety at work place
Administrator (Former Employee) – North Platte, NE – May 7, 2018
A typical day for me was ensuring that staff were providing quality of care and that residents and staff were happy. I learned that their are many different unique and experienced people in the world. The hardest part of my job was losing residents to death and dying. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing the residents everyday.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Wilmington, DE – May 3, 2018
Caring for our elders is something special. When the census goes down from natural causes or people moving elsewhere it effects our hiring and there are many times we come up short-staffed. The management on the premises is good and caring.
Accounts Payables Coordinator (Current Employee) – Newton, MA – April 28, 2018
When I started there it was a nice place to work, then slowly with changes it all went down hill. Management could care less about their employees its all about the bottom line. They make horrible decisions that affect their employees make their jobs harder, but they dont care. In my opinion there are certain people in management should be let go time to bring in new blood. The accounting dept is the worst, they prefer to keep bad employees then hire good ones. I would never recomend this place to anyone not even my enemy.
Regional Director of Health Services (Current Employee) – Newton, MA – April 17, 2018
Typical day is long, learned a lot about policies and procedures and the necessity of keeping them up to date. Workplace culture is difficult. Long term care is hard and dealing with the changing culture of regs is even more difficult.
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Hollywood, FL – March 18, 2018
My day at five star was always smooth, I learned alot about old people, the management there were straight forward, the hardest part was trying to satify the residents, and the enjoyable part was watching them play games.
Building Maintenance (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – March 6, 2018
The residents at Five Star have come to a point in their lives where assistance is needed, some need more than other just need routine help with medications. Each every resident makes it a different experience for everyone that works there. I enjoyed my experience there.
