A positive attitude goes a long way.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee) –  Lees Summit, MODecember 14, 2017
The medical field can be challenging. Problems will arise but the positive work of a team gets through it with no problem. My Unit manager and team works together. Benefits are good. Discounts to outside vendors are a plus. There are days that they are short staffed and they can be hard, but it’s not everyday. I’ve worked many places and they all have the same issue. But the teamwork is what gets you through. Advancement opportunity is there if you want it. They have constant continuing education to keep up with changes and policy updates. Re-education on patient care to keep you fresh.
Pros
Benefits. Team building strategies.
Cons
Short staffed at times.

Fun enjoyable place to work except the managers are all over the place
Waiter/Server (Former Employee) –  Lees Summit, MOApril 16, 2018
I enjoyed worked at John Knox for over a year and learned a lot of life skills. Patience as well as being able to socialize and converse with many different people are probably the most important skills I learned. In my opinion, the managers all had different rules/requirements they expected us to follow and they were never on the same page. For example, the manager on Monday night might require things done a certain way and the manager on Tuesday night would get on you for doing it the way you were told to do it on Monday.
Pros
Free food and discounts from the grill, long breaks depending on the shift
Cons
Terrible management at Fireside

Loved working with the crew there. Had a blast fixing and fabricating things for all sorts of projects and what not. Became better at being more well rounded tech from working there.

unorganized leadership
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Lees Summit, MOFebruary 17, 2017
very overworked and the leadership can care less of your opinions or suggestions so you end up saying nothing to improve the process. Human Resources is useless. Very unfortunate because this organization always will lose good, dedicated, professional associates.
Pros
several places to eat and take a break when you can, they offer a clinic option onsite
Cons
no loyality when you work hard, you begin to feel unmotivated, benefits, directors that have been there too long, need new and fresh leadership

Great starter company
Average Employee (Former Employee) –  Lees Summit, MOOctober 5, 2017
It's a good place to get your feet wet going into a career but in all honesty, that's because they will throw you in the deep end and hope you can swim. They care very little if you drown, and the management is more worried about saving a dollar instead of making working conditions better. The culture at this company is really tarnished as everyone there feels entitled and the people who succeed are the people who complain the most. They work good employees either to the bone or out of a job.
Pros
Great time off
Cons
Heavy work loads, no training, bad support system, management will do anything to save a dollar.

horrible place to work
Certified Medication Technician (Current Employee) –  Lees Summit, MOMay 15, 2014
PACU sucks. The secretary is about 60 years old and acts like she is 12. The supervisor micromanages and makes changes constantly w/o telling anyone. There is no teamwork. ALWAYS short handed. The people that do the admissions on that unit are rude and hateful. Just a miserable place to work
Pros
only work 14 days a month
Cons
lucky if u get a break in 12 hours, no raises even though they are making money

Comment – July 29, 2014

nothing has changed. PACU has had a MAJOR turnover and continues to do so. You would think that someone would want to know why people keep leaving. Constantly have agency working there. There is a problem when a company has 107 positions open and when referring people, they find an excuse for not hiring them......they don't want to pay the referral bonus. This place is a mess and I only work there as I cannot find another job at the moment but am actively looking

Terrible place to work. Avoid at all costs.
Security Officer/ EMT (Former Employee) –  Lees Summit, MONovember 15, 2017
Avoid this work place at all costs. You are promised advancement during your orientation. However, you are not allowed to advance in the timeframe outlined in orientation. You are not appreciated for your work efforts. The managers in my department were the most incompetent people I have ever met. They have multiple protocols that violate the national requirements. Most of the buildings leak terribly when it rains. No effort is made to fix any of those problems. Most of the old people that live there are forced to walk around with standing water on the floor during the storms. If you have any respect for yourself or your profession do not work here. It's all smoke and mirrors.
Pros
Uniforms provided
Cons
You could lose your license working here, Constantly lied to by leads, This place runs like 8th grade student council, Avoid at all costs.

John Knox Village Does Not Care About Anything But MONEY!
Certified Nursing Assistant- Village Care Center (Former Employee) –  Lee's Summit, MOJanuary 26, 2015
Always short staffed there were many times I was assigned 34 dementia residents for my shift! Over half the building is staffed by Agency. They tell you about incentives to come in on your day off and then take the money out of your paycheck. Worst job I have ever had.
Pros
Loved my residents!
Cons
short staffed, overworked, horrible benefits
