Don't let this Activity Coordinator Position fool you.
Activity Coordinator (Former Employee) – Tewksbury, MA – March 8, 2019
Simply put, I would never advise anyone to take this position as your set up for failure the moment you step foot through the door. Corporate does not care for what the residents want for activities they provide them for them. There is too much work for one person to handle and when you say I need some help or assistants or I do not have the time- you will get I don't want to hear that and you will get no help either. It doesn't matter what management says about you it matters what corporate says about you even though you never meet them or better yet when corporate does comes to the community and he does not even say hello or come visit you yet makes judgements against you, it's really wrong and they should be ashamed of themselves. I happen to think a lot of myself but they try to tear you down.I personally didn't allow them to do that to me. If you have a strong personality, don't take the position. I also think they are pretty juvenile with the activities they want you to perform with the residents.(Elf on the shelf) I thought that was for youngsters. Corporate does the same activities like the Prom, the Gingerbread house contest and their Virtual trip that they plan for you every year, after year, now if that isn't boring? The majority of residents will tell you they do not want to do those activities. You again are set up for failure because if you can't get the residents on board you look like the failure.
