Great medication experience along with performing cares
Caregiver (Current Employee) – White Bear Lake, MN – June 24, 2018
Its a small Memory Care cottages. On a daily basis, I take care about 4-6 residents on my shift. I administer scheduled meds & give PRN as needed. Performed cares throughout the day. Wash dishes after each meals. (Breakfast & lunch) Staffing is ok. On some days if its short staff, agency come in if Prelude staffs doesn't pick up a shift. A.M manager is good. P.M is lazy and mean. Nurse sometimes come help feed residents as needed. A lot of the coworkers is helpful, there's a few lazy one. Work every other weekend. Monthly meeting there's always snacks. Residents is nice and funny. Building is BEAUTIFUL AND CLEAN. Overall, I enjoyed passing out meds and engaging with residents to provide reassurance.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – White Bear Lake, MN – January 13, 2019
I worked at prelude in White Bear Lake for about 8 months. In my personal experience it was an extremely unprofessional and overwhelming invornment. This is my least favorite care attended job I’ve had. The management was absolutely ridiculous!! I was hired on part time position but was told I could go to full time when I wanted, that was a lie. I kept asking when I was going full time and come to find out the manager hired somebody to take the all the shifts I’d been asking for!! It left me struggling to pay all my bills and if I would have known I wasn’t going to eventually get full time I wouldn’t have excepted the job and she knew that and that’s why she lied. I remember my 2nd day on the job I worked along with the evening shift manger on the west side memory care floor, I asked her to help me transfer a resident into a wheelchair from her bed and she told me no!! She told me the resident was “light enough” for me to pick her up on my own. This manager is also the same one who FALSELY accused me of trying to steal residents medicine! Why would I as a 22 year old want to steal a BLOOD PRESSURE PILL!? Even her managers and nurses knew I didn’t do anything and said they have other care attentdents stealing medicine so they are “on edge” about everyone. Really?? To accuse someone that didn’t do anything wrong of something that serious is absolutely ridiculous. And higher up management did nothing about her making false claims about me and they still made me work with her, extremely uncomfortable!!! This manager bullied me, talked down to me and would literally take her breaksmore... at lunch time and leave me to dish out all of the residents food by myself and feed 3 PLUS memory care patients BY MYSELF while she ran to have cigarettes and run to the store!!! Management and coworkers point the finger at everyone and accuse eachother of nonsense, and don’t even bother trying to tell manager about a coworker leaving residents in filth and not doing their job because they will threaten you and get in your face and ask if you were the one who “snitched on them” The nurse manager also refuses to fill out my CNA renewal papers and refuses to return my phone calls, she also told me they don’t know if they “have my pay stubs” I quit only 6 months ago HOW DO YOU NOT HAVE THEM???? This place is a MESS and I could go on and on! How about my very first week of working there I was left completely by myself because they sent my coworker to work at a different facility for the day. I hated working here. The evening shift manager that gave me so much trouble would ask my coworker “I’m surprised she’s still here, I’m surprised she hasn’t quit yet!!” Wow real professional!! There is so much more that happened to me here, extremely rude staff and unprofessional and awful management. I’m definitely calling the state or whoever will listen about them not helping me with my CNA renewal papers. I’m also reporting them for not having my paystubs because that is not okay! ALL OF THIS I WENT THROUGH AND BARLEY GOT PAID ANYTHINGless

Landscaper (Current Employee) – White Bear Lake, MN – May 21, 2017
Working here for my first summer job as a landscaper was amazing. The days were long and tiring. However, it was worth every amount of my time. It gave me great experience and skills I will use later on in life. The staff there are very nice and helpful as well.
