Concierge (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MN – November 20, 2018
Walker Methodist Levande is truly an amazing workplace. From job advancement opportunity to work collaboration, this workplace allows your job to turn into a career! Management at Levande has always been extremely approachable, not condescending, and always open to discuss issues the employees find. My co-workers are amazing as well-- everyone is willing to help each other out when needed and open to discuss needs. It is really rewarding to see how your own work can enrich the lives of older adults in the community!
My typical day at work is usually full and interesting. Management is good it is a fresh team who have all worked in different levels of work in the community so they understand the struggles of each department. The workplace culture is really a fun group. They are supportive and enjoyable to be around. The hardest part of the job is usually just the normal struggles that come with working with seniors. I love working with seniors, they have so many stories and lessons to teach you. I learn more every single day.
Concierge/Receptionist (Current Employee) – Lakeville, MN – September 15, 2018
Our leadership team is wonderful. My boss and her boss are two of the hardest working ladies I've ever met. They would never ask us to do anything that they wouldn't do themselves and are so quick to respond when we need help (even during nights & weekends)
Everyone from maintenance to culinary to resident services is so friendly & helpful - not just with each other but also with our residents. You can tell just by watching the waitstaff interact with residents at dinner time that they really care about the residents and likewise the residents love talking to them.
Yes, it does get hectic here at times, especially if there's a 911 call or a super hot day pushes the AC units too hard. But no matter how busy we get, you never feel like you're facing it alone.
I absolutely recommend Walker Methodist Highview Hills in Lakeville as a wonderful place to work or live.
The leadership team, the residents, rewarding work
Executive Director (Current Employee) – Lakeville, MN – September 13, 2018
I get up every morning excited to come do the work I do - Walker Methodist Highview Hills is a great team - knowledgeable and compassionate! I know every day I am given the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of older adults!
Walker Methodist is a great place to work! We have a culture and environment that is so unique and familial! We truly operate like a giant family. Management is amazing and so helpful, whether its finding answers to all of our crazy questions and requests or getting right down on the floor working when there's a call in or shortage. There is no Us vs. Them mentality. We are a true TEAM! Relaxed atmosphere and friendly environment. Every member of our team truly cares for our residents and for each other. Competitive wages and benefits. HIGHLY recommend for work or living!
Friendly, great hours, free meal, welcoming environment
Cook. Open the dinning (Former Employee) – Lakeville, MN 55044 – July 1, 2018
the management is the worst, the Executive Cook just is in the office, almost never cook or help, and her boss and the boss of her are completely dummies to understand the needs of the kitchen and the people
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Lakeville, MN – June 11, 2018
It was a hard work place especially as a housekeeper in a senior community. Certain staff that were not housekeepers thought being a housekeeper was an easy job. It is a hard job and you use your entire body.
prefer not to mention (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – May 23, 2018
Worked my best for all the years I was there, but never was shown any appreciation. Corporate needs to be overhauled. They frequently make decisions without consulting any employees. They find a way to skirt around the union.
RA (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MN – February 9, 2018
Very poorly managed staff, lost a lot of great workers due to poor management. Management lies and is very deceptive to staff. Uncomfortable leaving memory care unit for extended periods of time. Poor training. Ran by management that has little to no experience in assisted living. High turn over rate. Makes staff work endless days/ hours in a row. Made one person work over 24 hours. Another person worked over a month straight. Over time only for working over 40 hours in a work week.
Concierge (Former Employee) – Edina, MN – February 3, 2018
My manager really showed they cared and worked so hard with me as I was dealing with my own personal issues. I worked at the front desk and rarely had issues with people. Of course can't get along with everyone but that's life. I hope that I can still have an opportunity to work with the company because I was progressing with a real career and want to be there.
Wait Staff (Former Employee) – West Saint Paul, MN – September 11, 2017
Most days we would prep for either breakfast, lunch and dinner. The quick paced part would be when the people would fill in the dinning room and we have to take orders and grab food. I learned more communication skills as well moving more cautiously and quickly. The management is great and everyone is taken care of. The hardest part of the job is remembering what everyone in your section needs. The most enjoyable part is the people you work with and being able to work out issues that occur with them.
Other (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – July 18, 2017
High turnover even at leadership level, poor communication amongst departments and department heads, and very poor work/life balance for employees. Do not follow their vision of being 'the best place to live and work'.
Walker Methodists was a good steady job. you really had to work, you were always doing something no matter if you finished early. you would work as a team with some people at work. only problem that was at Walker Methodists was the drama that the people that worked there carried with them.
