Beautiful facilities, poor management and pay
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – September 28, 2018
I first started working at Kingston when they paid for my CNA class. I had a very strict training and orientation that made me feel ready for the job. Although it's a fast pace to work at, most of the staff was amazing at helping. Nurses are "required" to answer 10 call lights on their 12-hour shift, seems easy, but it is not enforced. Working as a CNA, you do the hard, dirty work of the building. I love my job, I loved my fellow CNA's and residents, but the nurses and management made my time at Kingston dreadful. I would be the one to always offer to stay over a shift when they were understaffed or come in early. They rarely offered an incentive, we were severely understaffed, and nurses/management would not help. The scheduler was comfortable with staffing CNA's to the maximum resident:CNA. I felt as if the management didn't care about you or your work as well. I hope in the future, the company will turn around and treat their hardworking employees like they are appreciated. I definitely would have stayed if I felt as if I were appreciated via incentive/higher pay, or even something as simple as management saying you're doing a great job.
