Residents seemed happily engaged in their respective interests.
Day Custodian (Former Employee) – Winter Park, FL – August 3, 2018
Pushing heavy loaded carts of linen was one of the hardest parts of the job, but overall I got use to it as there were sometimes even harder aspects of my position handling all the linen. The most enjoyable part of the job was being called upon to uplift the spirits of the residents with my recitations of Poetry, The administration was able to acknowledge this gift that I have by allowing me to recite Poetry to the residents.
Nurse (Current Employee) – Bradenton – September 20, 2018
This place used to be great. The independent and AL building is lovely and the staff is fantastic! When you go to the long term/rehab building it’s a whole other world. They tell you it’s a nonprofit but they run it like a for profit. God forbid someone needs to be sent out to the hospital! They are more worried about losing the money than the person’s life. Most staff is rude, nurses yelling at residents, residents afraid to speak up, and rehab patients that are refusing to come back because of the neglect. The management is awful because they either A) don’t care, B) don’t believe that there is something going on, C) have their favorites and they NEVER get in trouble, D) you don’t see any of them getting up to help, or E) they lie straight to your face. The people that care about the residents are few and far between.

While this is only relevant to the Suncoast Location it is an accurate, factual review. Day in and day out you will be exposed to dysfunctional management from the top down. Although the residents are usually friendly it seems management is insincere, disrespectful and certainly at times arrogant. The best part of the job is certainly the residents. The most challenging part of the job is whenever HR or Management get involved. It will get bad.
Worker (Current Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – September 3, 2018
While I loved the interaction with other employees and certain residents, there were many cons to this job. Starting with Upper Management & Administration, they were involved in EVERYTHING, even in small department discussions that didn’t involve them. The Uppermost management showed no interest in the employees, and was very biased towards certain individuals. Also, the arrogance of the some of the directors was very disheartening. The other problem is the hiring process; I’ve known multiple people where it takes a month to process them and in the end, don’t end up working because of some HR error. Could be a much better environment if management trusted and respected fellow employees.
staff (Current Employee) – St Pete, FL – August 23, 2018
A working condition that certainly is not for everyone. You would think a "churched" based organization would be a pleasant place to work. This is not the case at the Suncoast property. Unsupportive Management, Dysfunctional HR and a culture of heavy turnover in certain areas make for a day in and day out challenge.
Server (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – July 22, 2018
Management is Horrible they only care about the time being of food served instead of how the residents like it. Treat servers like slaves while they walk around and nag about extra & talk about problems at home. Always short staffed & asking employees to come in on days off. Wouldn't recommend this Job title to anyone 18+ or looking for a full time career i'd leave it as a job for the minors & with the pay not even that I'd work at mcdonalds instead actually
Department Manager (Current Employee) – Florida – June 20, 2018
A great place to work if you love working for older people. If you don't then why would you take this job. Every day you can work alongside other people who want to work toward the greater good. Westminster cares most about the residents. This is a faith based nonprofit environment. Good for residents, not as great for employees. Maybe a little too Christian sometimes. But in total a wonderful place to work!
Great working environment, good employees, good managers
Server (Former Employee) – Greenville, SC – June 13, 2018
This company does not care for its residents nor its employees the management is horrible you never know what to expect. Things are constantly changing and you never know who’s showing up to work. In many occasions I had to fill in for another employee or “two “ due to “no call no show”. There is no punishment for this type a behavior. The residents are sitting in filthy chairs and Unsanitized tables. The only good part of the job was the interaction with the residents.
Not a place to work if you value strong management.
Manager (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – June 12, 2018
Poor training, poor management, lack of empathy from leadership.
There was an air of "just do your job and keep quiet". Even if corners are cut and people living here are not getting what they were promised when they moved into this facility. I would NEVER leave a family member here.
none to mention
No breaks, poor care to residents, lack of any feelings for the staff or residents by Owners and Leadership
LPN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Winter Park, FL – April 24, 2018
This place looks beautiful but on the inside it’s a nightmare. Your the only nurse on the floor, no one to guide you or anything. Everyone is overworked. If they had a better management and organization this could be a great business. Everything is done on the 3-11 shift forget about about your social life and your family westminister will own you.
Manager (Current Employee) – St. Petersburg, FL – March 26, 2018
I've been with Westminster for over a year and still look forward to coming into work every day. Hands down best job I've ever had with the best PTO plans and Health Insurance discounts I've seen. They offer a wellness program that'll give you back $45 per pay check! I pay $8 per pay check for medical insurance!! Great employee meals for $3.50
Wellness, Insurance, Pto, Retirement plans, Work life balance, Meals
Nurse (Current Employee) – Westminster manor health center – March 23, 2018
Is it tough work? Yes. Are we busy? Yes. Do we ever feel under paid? Yes. Do staff some times bicker? Yes. Do we feel that we are under staffed at times? Yes. Is that any different than where you have been? No. It's the nature of this industry. And I have been at a whole lot worse. The fifth star? We are making change, we are doing it right, we care, we are building an incredible nursing team, and we are getting there. Will it ever be the best place you have worked? Perhaps. You are invited, and more than welcome to stop complaining and come be a part of change and find out.
Great nursing team.
None less than some you've complained about before.
RN (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – February 13, 2018
Good interview process. Orientation is too short, only one week to learn a difficult job. Good staff. Great residents. Management is horrible and they are insincere. Long hours without hardly any breaks. Overworked nurses. Lots of mistakes and shortcuts are made and swept under the rug. 40 patients to one nurse without help . Poor compensation and no shift differential.
I don't recommend anyone to work here they don't care about the employees they work you like a dog with low pay the staff is rude and so are the supervisors and directors in there eyes you always do everything wrong never right this place is a horror story take it from me I still work there and trying to get out!!!!!!as we speak
Dietary (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – January 24, 2018
Short staffing on purpose. Staff doesn’t help one another because they CAN’T. No one can help any one because every one is already doing more than they are able. It is a miserable state of affairs. The only way to get through a shift is to keep your head down and cut corners.
