Cook/various other jobs (Former Employee) – Bryan, OH – September 11, 2018
Learned various jobs that were all time-sensitive, and fast-paced. Communication needed work, especially between other departments within the company. Got along well with other workers, which made the day go better. There were a lot of call-in's, which meant they called the more reliable people all the time.
Corporate Director of Operations (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – December 17, 2017
As the Corporate Director of Operations and Outcomes I was responsible for 38 of the 76 facilities. I would review the portfolio with my divisional nurses and develop plans to improve the outcomes of each center. In this position I learned how to multitask and prioritize the needs from the most severe to the need of assistance. The culture was one where you could make recommendations based on observations and outcomes to the Senior VP of Clinical without any reprisal. The hardest part of the job was turnover in communities that were already struggling. I would with assistance from Corporate create job fairs. The most enjoyable part of my job was when the hard work of the staff paid off.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Broadview Heights, OH – November 21, 2017
I felt that the management at this facility pigeon holed you in to a box and left you there. Means of communication was almost non existent. I worked many units. Sometimes 3 in a 12 hour shift. 4 hours on one hall only to move to another and then another did allow for proper care in my opinion.
A few caring team members with longevity
Poorly managed in some areas and micromanaged in others.
Assistant DON and Acting DON (Former Employee) – Bryan, OH – June 29, 2017
Long term care is a difficult field. The patient load is always heavy. Staffing was a huge problem to handle as was employee maintenance and turn over. There was always a constant hiring and termination in this position.
Social Service Director (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – May 19, 2017
The staff at Harborside was very caring for the residents and it showed in their daily interaction with the resident, staff and outside agencies. Administration was very hands on with staff and this made for a positive work environment.
Trainer/Consultant (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – February 20, 2017
I learned so much from my coworkers while I was there. They are one of the biggest things I miss. The work environment is fun and the people are awesome. It's unfortunate that I was presented with a different opportunity and Harborside found it as a conflict of interest. Had that not been the case, I would still work there.
Cook/Prep (Former Employee) – New Heaven, IN – September 22, 2016
I prep and cooked meals 5 to 6 days a week. Management was okay never had an issue with them or any co workers There was nothing really hard about the job it was very routine, was not the best of jobs, but it was a job and it help pay the bills.
