Wouldn’t recommend for first time CNA’s or anyone wanting to advance in the medical field
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – August 10, 2018
ManorCare was my first CNA job. I was there all of a month and left because of management issues, problems on the floor and poor hours. I was full time would only get at the most 37 hours a week, but even then the scheduler always sent people home early or told them to not come in because they had too many aides. Aides on the floor have terrible teamwork, they pick and choose who they want to help leaving you unable to do a two assist and ultimately leaving the resident to possibly wait hours for cares. Management is incompetent. You go to them and nothing gets fixed, they just act oblivious to the problems on the floor. I went to management when I first started getting trained up until the day I left with concerns. You know what that left me with? Being called out on blast at a meeting. Forget open door policy. The DON told everyone in a meeting that I was complaining nobody helped, which should’ve stayed confidential. Somehow word spread on the floor I was leaving which management themselves must’ve told, again I’m not sure what’s up with the gossip. I wouldn’t recommend this place to a new aide or anyone looking to advance in their medical career. Go somewhere else! Somewhere that will prepare you efficiently, where the pay is worth the workload and mess you deal with.
Lack of teamwork, terrible management, poor hours, expensive insurance
