Terrible management & don’t care about residents.
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Mattoon, IL – June 7, 2019
I recently worked at Palm Terrace and I liked the job, until my trainer started treating me like garbage, like I was her child. Then after I was fully trained, everyone suddenly started adding things for me to do, enough to the point where I worked nonstop from 5am till about 3:30 Pm with no breaks when everyone else left at 1 and got at least 4 smoke breaks and got a 30 min lunch break. Then I had to leave early one day for a family emergency (one hour before my shift ended) and I was sick one day and texted my supervisor. She said I had already missed two days and if I missed another, I would be terminated. I hadn’t missed two days and I was sick, I was thinking of the health of the residents and she said if I was late or didn’t show up to work because of being “sick” (even though I was puking and constantly in the bathroom), I would be fired. So I texted the Administrator; and she told me the same thing. They don’t care about residents health at all!
Overworked, rude staff, poor management
