CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Linglestown, PA – July 10, 2018
Wonderful place to work. Employees are kind and helpful. CNAs take care of residents in a reasonable way. Making sure they are happy and clean, giving them what ever they need. Management is also kind and understanding.

You have been strongly fore-warned: DO NOT BOTHER!
Your typical day will be twice the work for your wage; you will learn this is a work place with a culture of "who can get away with the least amount of productivity;" Management . . . literally ILLITERATE! Culture is racist/biased/concentric; the hardest part of the job is watching the residents suffer on behalf of such drastic mis-management; and of course the most enjoyable part of the day . . . . punching out!
I'm 57 years old, a plethora of vocational experiences, those of which performances mounted to 6-figuer incomes, but I have never, no NEVER had such negative experiences while working for jewish senior life.

I worked here for a few years. Always understaffed. Since they were understaffed they worked you hard because they had to make it up for not a lot of people working. Their was a time they had a enough people and they still worked you like a dog. The dining services managers were not the best managers. They never helped you out. They took advantage of you.

I'm not sure why people have had such bad experiences because I've worked here over 2 years per diem and really enjoy it as a nurse. I use to work for 2 different nursing agencies who have sent me to many different facility's to work so I've worked at A LOT of nursing homes and there's a reason this place is rated 5 stars! It's very clean, staff are professional and I would work here full time if I didn't have a full time job in homecare. Out of all nursing homes I have worked at throughout NYS this is by far the nicest.
Cant think of anything i dont like? Parking maybe? Lol
Director (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – December 13, 2017
This organization cares about it's employees and the residents. It is a great place to work and the benefits are good too. There is a culture of collaboration and innovation here. Because of this, there can be stressful times (not always!), and overall the organization is growing and it is exciting to be a part of that growth.

The Jewish Home has been plagued with staff turnover issues for years. The issues start with their senior management team. The CFO is particularly horrible. Expect to be put in the basement for 8-10 hours a day with no windows . You can expect long hours, little job satisfaction, and a large amount of stress. Management doesn't know what they're doing.
Culinary Assistant (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – October 26, 2017
You get to know the people you work with not only in your department but also in other departments through out the facility. Getting to know people from other departments help because it's basically like building a team to make the work day smoother.
Dining Services (Former Employee) – Brighton, NY – October 16, 2017
The Jewish home is not a good place to work. Very poor management. The HR should look at the supervisors in dining services. 4 managers sit and do nothing, while everybody else works really hard. They make vacation plans on company time. Don't work here. What ever you do.
Dining Services (Former Employee) – Brighton, NY – August 18, 2017
The Jewish home is not a great place to work. I thought it was good at first. It went down hill. I work in dining services. The managers in dining services are rude and disrespectful. They work you like a dog. Do not work here
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – May 22, 2017
They do not work as a team and they are always on the move so you are never or slim to none to find someone for help with a difficult patient. Also you barely are able to take your scheduled breaks on time
Good pay and alot of availble hours
No team work and too many residence a day for one person
Would be a great place if they cared about their residents.
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – May 21, 2017
I loved the Jewish Home for the experience of meeting the residents. I hated it for almost every other reason. Nurse managers were more concerned about how they looked to higher management then anything else, including residents. The supervisors are actually pretty awesome but they have no power to make any real change. CNAs were rude and degrading to residents and other staff. I even had a resident get threatened by one and management did absolutely nothing about it. I had residents crying to me every night about how they just felt like they were a piece of trash there. It was the most heartbreaking thing. If you are a nurse that actually cares about people and believes in what it means to be a nurse, don't work there. You aren't going to change how they do anything and no one cares. If you have a bad attitude, are abusive, just collecting a paycheck, seems like the perfect place for you.
