Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Inver Grove Heights, MN – April 20, 2018
While I enjoyed working with the employees that were also CNA's, I felt that most of the management in charge of hiring other CNAs just hired anybody. They just wanted to meet the minimum number of CNAs on a shift and did not care about the quality of work being done and thus the quality of life being provided to residents. The CNAs that cared and worked hard, picked up the slack of the CNAs that did not care, pulled double the work at the same quality in the same amount of time, while still getting paid the same amount as the recently hired CNAs that did not care and slacked off. The management just wanted to look good on paper, and eventually they will lose all of their amazing CNAs since they refuse to treat them with respect or benefits (They refused to hire me as full time to get benefits so that they could save money. They cut my hours short for shifts even though I was still scheduled for the same amount of days as a full-time worker. I picked up plenty of extra shifts and should have been given the same respect.)
the few CNAs that cared and the loving residents
HR HR HR and MANAGEMENT. Have to fight for every dollar.
Assistant (Former Employee) – Peoria, AZ – April 22, 2018
Management has ruined the purpose of this companys mission. They have nurse and cna's quitting by the day. They only give three days of training and leave you on the floor to just figure out. There always short staff and loads of work under paid. Very stressful and overwhelming when there's no support
overworked and most of the time doing others people job. Low staff and they treat you like a robot. Not caring about your feelings or health. Feel some racism, and overwork to the bone and very stressful job.
it was a good place to work except we were usually understaffed
Resident care (Former Employee) – Oberlin, KS – April 10, 2018
We usually didn't get any breaks as we were always short staffed. But we had to put down a 30 minute break on our time cards so they wouldn't get into trouble. Scheduling was a nightmare, they really need a new DSM.
Home Care Aide (Former Employee) – Moline, IL – April 3, 2018
I worked here for about 3 months and i liked the job. the clients were all really nice and management was nice as well. The pay is terrible especially when you have to use your own car to get to different job sites and to run errands for clients . The amount they pay you when you drive far is a measly 30 cent per mile over the radius they give you. I would come back maybe once i am a nurse but, if the pay is anything like it is with the aides than they can forget about it!
RN Case Manager Home Health (Current Employee) – Golden Valley, MN – April 1, 2018
A typical day at work for RN Case Manager is spent in the field completing 4-8 nursing visits. There are some days one may work 4-5 hours per day and some 12 hour days. There are so many opportunities for knowledge & skill advancement. Management is a pleasure to work with; they are kind and understanding. As noted in the summary the workplace culture is tight knit, I consider my co-workers part of my family. The hardest part of the job is the long days; in home care, you don't leave your work at work as in many other nursing careers. The most enjoyable part of the job is really making a difference in the lives of the clients we serve.
Activity Director (Former Employee) – Newell, IA – March 31, 2018
Typical day was busy and full of multitasking. Learned how a SNF operates and how to be certified. Management as in administrator was not supportive in many areas and not a problem helper when it came to issues. Was not there for most events or very personable with residents or staff. Was not there most of the time. Did not help when there was issues with other co workers. Hardest part of job was trying to do full time workload in a very part time hour world. Most enjoyable was the residents and fulfilling their needs.
Account Executive (Current Employee) – Golden Valley, MN – March 30, 2018
I’ve been at Good Samaritan Society home care for six years. We’ve had continual growth within exciting atmosphere and excellent employees. We have a team atmosphere and you feel heard when you have ideas and concerns. I would highly recommend this workplace
My first job was here, so I didn't really have anything to compare it to at the time. Looking back, the director of nurses was very unprofessional. He used to curse at the nurses at our meetings and was very demeaning. Always made us feel like we were dumb. Don't think I would ever return.
Housekeeping Attendant (Former Employee) – Kearney, NE – March 28, 2018

Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Indianola, IA – March 19, 2018
This location has very low life people in charge of it. All of them lie. Very fake people.They have no good morals or values. None of them care about the employees that work there. My supervisor had a very foul mouth. She was extremely loud. She talked very disrepectfully about the residents. She didn't care who could hear her.
Administrator- Home Health (Current Employee) – Golden Valley, MN – March 17, 2018
I love this company because I have always been given the freedom to do my job in the way I feel is most productive toward meeting goals. There are lots of supportive people in management, and they really strive to make employees feel like they matter, their families matter, and their work is appreciated.
