Unsanitary kitchen and disrespectful coworkers but my manager was great! There are a lot of jobs to do and we were always short staffed because people wouldn't show up and it would take forever to close.
Pros
After school hours
Cons
Pay was not great for all the work

The residents here are absolutely great and most of the employees. However when you are dealing with items that you need support with their is never anyway of getting it, often times you are left to fend for yourself and figure it out not knowing that if you were doing it right or wrong.
Pros
Residents and Employees
Cons

The work experience was very negative. Sales goals were unreachable based on confined of a community without a lock down senior community. The company Managment was poorly led by fake people w false intentions.
Pros
Residents very nice

this place was a stepping stone, the management was rude and they picked favorites. The coworkers were rude and felt as if you came to replace them so they wouldn't help you with different task. The only thing nice we re the residents
Pros
Hour lunch break
Cons
Not enough pay, no overtime, no room for advancement

The directors and supervisors were AMAZING. Independence village was by far my favorite job due to the residents and coworkers! The facility is ALWAYS clean, thanks to the amazing housekeepers, and the environment is unbelievably welcoming and exciting.

I cleaned 2nd floor, all of my residents were very sweet to me. My co-workers made my job so much fun. The pay was minimum wadge and I don't think that was worth the amount of work that was expected.

I worked at independence village for a little over a year. I loved everything about working there. The residents were great, the staff in ALL departments were amazing. I loved my co-workers and enjoyed working along side of them. I genuinely miss working there. Before becoming employed at the village I had no idea that places like this even existed. It was both inspiring and awesome. I am thankful to know there are other options aside from nursing homes etc.

Great properties and local staff with a lot of potential. Corporate has way too many cooks in the kitchen. There is a huge disconnect between the people running the show from Brighton MI and the employees in the field working at the properties. Corporate should be listening more and learning from their on-site leaders. Each community is different. Each market is different. You can’t put all I. One box.

I was pretty much just a dishwasher here, super easy job, very reliable and predictable hours. Just got a little above minimum wage. Pretty worth it though, got good free food every shift, perfect job for highschooler. Worked like 3-4 hours pretty much every day 3-7pm. The bosses were chill, all the employees were also highschoolers so it was pretty fun.
Pros
Free food, easy job, cool bosses, cool coworkers.
Cons
Short shifts, minimum wage, could not live off of as adult.

Hello,Thank you for providing feedback. We never get tired of hearing how much our employees get out of supporting our residents and "making a difference." We couldn't do that without you and the incredible team at Independence Village of Frankenmuth. To help offset the costs of health care expenses and save for future expenses, our plan features a health savings account (HSA). Not only can an employee make contributions on a tax-free basis, but we also contribute a generous amount to an employee’s HSA if they are enrolled in our medical plan. We have a team available to answer any additional questions you might have. Please reach out to Sarah Owen at (810) 534-1792. Thank you.

Independence Village is a great place to work in terms of getting into the restaurant business. It's relaxed, slow-paced, and the same people everyday. While there isn't much room for advancement, I highly recommend this job to anyone trying to make some easy money.
Pros
Flexible Hours, Relaxed
Cons
No Advancement, No Tips

On a typical day I would clock in right away, get on my work attire, look at what section I would be working in that day, grab some menu sheets, and go out and set up my section. I learned from this job to be more social with myself and others. The management their was amazing I love them both. The workplace was extremely good with lovely co-workers. The hardest part of the job was trying to balance so many things on a tray at one time. The most enjoyable part of the job was all of the senior citizens I was able to meet and get to know and hear all about their life.
Pros
Free dinners
Cons
Having an extremely busy section
