CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – San Rafael, CA – March 6, 2018
Like the title. There is little to no teamwork and the management in the workplace is whack. Most of the nurses walk around drinking coffee micro managing and telling CNA’s to do something while they’re busy. No, they will not help you if you ask especially when it gets pretty busy. Management is unprofessional. Favoritism at it’s finest. Management is critical about the smallest things you do and don’t do. Coworkers will gossip about anything to everyone and even twist words and complain to management about something that wasn’t true. I really can’t stress enough the amount of unprofessionalism and immaturity there is in this work place. It is not a safe environment at all!
If there’s any doubt about reading this review, go for it and apply, and experience it for yourself. You’ll regret it.
There are positive things about working at this place, but the negatives definitely over weigh it. So if anybody thinks about working at this place, it’s great for experience, but the worst place for a career. Go do your time then move on.
Good pay. 16 dollars an hour starting for CNA’s
No team work, Nurses micromanaging is whack, Critical management about the smallest things, Will get you frustrated

I've work with this company and stayed with this facility for may years. The culture is very diverse. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I couldn't ask for anything better then this Pine Ridge Family. Regardless, of a bad day or a good day I still come back working here.

Tough place to work but a lot of things to learn. Because of so much load of work for the nurses, the learning is hastened, but 8 hour shift is not enough to finish the tasks (and no OT's allowed. Not unless your Admin can vouch for you). It's hard to endorse to the next shift because they too have tasks that they need to accomplish (and of course you cannot endorse to the next shift your own documentations).
But I could say that within a year of working here I learned a lot especially skills wise. You'll also learn how to deal with family members, and other medical staffs (especially doctors, whew!).
If you really want to have experience, this place is a good start. But it will not be easy. Only those that are tough survives. Are you one of them?
