RECEPTIONIST (Former Employee) –  Fresno, CA 93726August 5, 2018
Friendly community, everyone cares, however they were doing too many budget cuts. I got a better job offer and it was the best thing to do because they wanted a full time receptionist and I wasn't able to do that due to school. I didn't want to worry about not having a job one day due to my school schedule

love the patients
Student Intern (Former Employee) –  Fresno, CAOctober 28, 2017
when working in oakwood gardens, the patients who reside in the facility are very kind, and have so many stories to tell. the only issue about the facility is lack of empathy from many of the CNA who works there.

Petty behaviors from co-workers
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) –  Fresno, CAOctober 11, 2017
Petty behaviors from co-workers, while management turns a blind eye. They say they do not condone such behaviors at Oakwood yet their actions say otherwise. Several others that were hired at the same time as myself quit due to these things. Talked to management and was told one thing just to turn around and do another. According to several staff it is business as usual when stuff like that occurs which happens alot.
Pros
none
Cons
petty co-workers, bad management

Poor professional skill by management and some co-workers

Student Nurse (Former Employee) –  Fresno, CASeptember 7, 2013
Each day at Oakwood Gardens Care Center requires an individual to be fully active. As a worker, many individuals will adapt to staying on their feet and progressing in their profession. Team work plays a big role in being a student nurse because the job requires an individual to step out of their comfort zone and face several challenges. These challenges include learning the work material of a CNA, becoming familiar with the facility, and being capable of bonding with hospital residents. However, bonding with the residents is an enjoyable aspect of being a student nurse.
Pros
Bonding with patients, staying active, and learning new material
Cons
No cons
