Unit Manager (Former Employee) – Athens, GA – December 14, 2018
Beautiful facility but the job was not what was promised. I was hired as a unit manager from 8-4 M-F but they were always short staffed on nurses so I didn't know from one day to the next if I was working as a manager or on a nurse cart 7-3. If I was on a cart as a nurse two days in a row then working as unit manager the next day they would expect that I would know all about that floor from the days I had just one hall and was passing meds. Very confusing management system. Didn't know who to contact on issues... very chaotic. While training on day 2, they gave my cell phone number to nurses on the hall who were texting me about issues with meds, etc. and I had just started and didn't know how to even address the issues yet. A few managers were all into everything. No real orientation. Some supervisors were miserable and burned out and hard to deal with.
Pay was decent
Chaotic management, no orientation, unclear expectations
Receptionist/Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Decatur, GA – November 29, 2018
A typical day is having to talk to the residents about the newspaper tv news or just what is happening each day. I learned that the elderly just want someone to talk to and give them a little attention. The hardest part of my job is sitting. Pruitt was a very busy place with guest in and out and nursing going back and forth to assist the residents.

Cook/Aid (Current Employee) – Elberton, GA – November 18, 2018
Wear not allowed to order food there cause we can’t.. It so sad that we can’t give the Residents a decent Breakfast meal only Ceral not alone of that don’t have enough for to serve them for lunch or dinner Sad.. The Administration doesn’t care how wear feeding these Residents Some one needs to come here and help these people
Poor work environment, minimal support from management/corporate, absent sense of job security, absent understanding of rehab services demonstrated by nsg/HR staff. Inadequate facilities with countless hazards reported formally and remained unattended to.
Cook (Former Employee) – Athens, GA – November 15, 2018
I would open (being first there) at 5am and begin cooking bacon, eggs, grits, toast, oatmeal, and a host of other breakfast foods, set up serving line, make plates according to the tickets, wash dishes from line when breakfast is finished, start cooking lunch and repeat process for lunch and be out by 2:30 to 2:45 pm
Dietary (Former Employee) – Union County, NC – November 14, 2018
Administrator has to go. People falling out of bed calling for help and nobody checks on them. this has happened more than once..Then the resident passed on. They only believe the nursing staff and nobody else. There is no help from upper management they go on lunch for hours, 3 of them. There is clicks. They need to come out of there office and help just like other managers do, you are no better. No 3-11or midnight cna's ,, this has been happening for weeks ... we had 1 CNA on rehab side and 1 cna for the whole shift. It was beyond terrible. When state comes in its everyone out and helping. I feel bad for the residents they ring call bells and they sit there for hours. To be helped.
Housekeeper (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – November 14, 2018
My overall experience at Pruitt Health has not been all that great. A new supervisor and I was hired at the same time, I felt as if I was being harassed daily and treated unfairly and discriminated against. The staff is lazy and not pleasant at all.
Administrator (Former Employee) – North Carolina – November 13, 2018
If you work in the Georgia area you seem to fair better. The NC offices don't get much support. Pruitt cares very little about it's partners and upper management is not supportive of it's offices. There Is very little education or orientation for staff. I would not recommend working here unless there was no where else to work.
While there are some great nurses and cnas there, most of them are horrible. Employees who slack get away with it all the time and those who are dedicated and work hard get taken advantage of. There is definitely racial bias.
RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – Greenville, NC – October 29, 2018
Micromanaged, cutthroat, lying , company with no advancement. Tell you what a good job you are doing then cut your throat by telling lies . Not a good place to work at all. It’s all about the dollar and not the patient. Admitting inappropriate pts to hospice to bring the census up. No back up and never on the employees side with accusations.
A typical nursing home, poor management, good pay, most employees got along well, clean place, hardest part was seeing patients die, best part was being able to start IVs and drawing lab work. MDS supervisor was superior.
Dietary Manager (Current Employee) – Georgia – October 28, 2018
I was salaried and when employees would leave to get a better job which was not hard to do I would have to step in and work on the floor and was also made to do my own job as well. You get paid for 40 but some times work up to 50/60 hours a week. I had to work a month straight to get a day off working times from 5:30 - 7:30 with no overtime. Lucky for me I got one day off then had to come back and work another month. My manager comes to me and says I'm worried about you and your department. They send patient to the building with not enough staff to take care of them.
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – October 25, 2018
The manager there wanted you to have laundry done by 11 pm and that’s impossible to have done with only one person doing the laundry taking the trash out and also going on the floor and restocking the cart for the cna and pullling all the dirty laundry and then separated the laundry and u have to wash the towels and sheets together and then wash the laundry that has stool on them separate and wash them twice and then wash and dry the linens and try folding everything up and then if it wasn’t done u would lose your job that’s not how u treat someone the housekeeping manager has a really nasty attitude
LCSW (Former Employee) – North Wilkesboro, NC – October 24, 2018
Pruitt, specifically the hospice in North Wilkesboro, is the most corrupt and unethical company I have ever seen or been apart of. I would not recommend this company to anyone seeking employment (in any capacity) or in need of hospice services. Management and staff (those who are friends with management) are so self-serving, that the needs of patients always comes secondary. Additionally, there are poor benefits, no respect, and no compassion. I am certain there are better hospice agencies to chose to be apart of.
Administration got in trouble over pettiness that came from higher ups. Staff still blame everything on that incident that occurs now MONTHS later. No accountability from current employees for their actions. They're allowed to belittle staff, continue to go against Medicare guidelines, fire staff over pettiness, no training you basically get thrown to the wolves sink or swim should be the motto, over worked staff, nurses continue to cover up things so that no one comes back in the office to investigate, pts don't get the care they deserve or need, as long as there's pts and money coming in no one cares, when you work a notice you don't get all of your expenses paid out, you have to continually fight with corporate and the office level bc no one can do their job accurately, not a Christian work place more like drama, high school who can get blamed for what, I wouldn't let them take care of my dog they'd probably kill it, staff pick and choose what pts they want to see if they remotely think it's a sketchy neighborhood they won't go.. a very corrupt place to work. Mr. Pruitt has no idea what goes on in the facilities or office level his entourage keeps it hush hush. No room for advancement. No support for pts who desperately need respite care that was going to cost a measly $60 for round trip transport. If you like walking on egg shells or looking over your shoulder then this is the place for you. If you want job security, more adult like work environment this isn't for you.
Flexible at times
Poor management, staff talk down to other staff, pay sucks, etc
