Barista (Former Employee) – Westlake Village, CA – June 27, 2018
Management needs to get together and become a family. Too much gossip for the workplace (like any other work), a lot of backstabbing and hostility in some departments. Team building is my best suggestion. Managers need to be put in check more often by HR.
Collector I (Former Employee) – California – December 15, 2016
The only things I loved from working here were the friends I made and the experience I gained. Some management was great, but most weren't great. Everyone seemed to have a different answer for everything whether the answer be right or wrong.
Senior Helpers (Former Employee) – Westlake Village, CA – March 30, 2016
First reason why i stopped working with them is because they're pay rate is just the not even reasonable anymore. i've been working for them for 2 years plus and my pay is still the same . $10 per hour for such a hard and stressful job.

Dining room server (Current Employee) – Westlake, Ohio – October 6, 2012
A typical day at Westlake Village is prepping the kitchen for the upcoming shift, making sure I am all stocked and everything is ready to go. Once it was time for the residents to come down I would greet them and I would memorize what they would like (salad, ice tea, etc) I would take their orders and assist them as much as needed. After we'd clean up and reset the tables and I would clean the kitchen and make sure it was restocked for the next shift. My boss was always great to me and very flexible with my schedule. I was the one who would usually train new servers and I was the go-to girl when anybody had questions. I made many great friends while working there! The hardest part of the job was when a resident would pass away, it was so sad and I would get very close to my residents. The most enjoyable part was definitely interacting with the residents. They were so interesting and had their own stories and many years of wisdom.
