Charge Nurse (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 5, 2018
The company has potential. But management should focus on developing talent within for management roles. Also, there was a lot of turnover during the time that I was there. If the place focuses on work life balance, then more employees will likely stay with the organization. The pay was better than average for the Indianapolis area.
Dishwasher/Housekeeping/Serving (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – August 21, 2018
You have very fun-loving conversations and interactions with residents. You have coworkers for most part that are very friendly and very collaborative. You have a job that is very professional and make it mission to make sure all of its staff is taking care of. Would really recommend it.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 17, 2018
A typical day at work...clock in, get a report from the shift before, answer call lights, push residents in a wheelchair to meals, remind the other residents for meals, give residents their showers for that day, assist residents with dressing/undressing, assist residents with going to the bathroom, chart, empty the trash, and give a report of your shift to the next shift. Management needs to communicate more with staff or get to know their employees better. Mostly everyone gets along with each other. Hardest part of the job would be teamwork and working with residents who need to be in the health center so they can receive a higher level of care that they need. The most enjoyable days are working with people who care about the residents and teamwork.
Residents that love you and what you do for them, new friendships with your coworkers, competitive pay.
CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 26, 2018
The patients at Westminster were great and I loved working there because of them. However, the management was terrible and they seem to hire people who do not care to do their work. Therefor, their turnover rate was ridiculous and they show a lot of favoritism to people who do not deserve it. If you are a good and honest worker this might not be the place for you as they only value workers who quickly get the job done not those who do the job right.
Director of Financial Operations (Current Employee) – In – March 17, 2018
WVN is an excellent organization to work. Management is great and the BOD are a great benefit to the village. I have really enjoyed the past four years of employment. The environment and people are first rate.
Receptionist duties (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – August 30, 2017
Westminster is a great place to work with a wonderful group of people to work with. I truly love my job and the people I work with. The residents are more than kind. I would retire from this place if I had more room to move up and make more money. If I were a nurse there would be more opportunity to grow with the company.
They do alot for employees, Cookouts, Christmas bonus, yearly bonus.
Insurance a little expensive for a family plan. No room for growth, for just the average person
Line Worker (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 26, 2017
A good job while I was in college. I didn't learn much while working here. I came in set table and took orders and severed food. I bust the table after each meal. It was a good Job while I was in school.
Rewarding position - making a difference in lives each day
Marketing Communications & Event Manager (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 25, 2017
No two days are ever the same at the Village. Time management is critical. Days are spent balancing the demands of implementing marketing communication goals,creating and executing flawless events, coordinating across departments, and planning leisure services calendars for 350 personalities. Comments on newsletter articles, notes of appreciation, and smiles each day mean my efforts are reaching someone else. I may not please everyone some of the time, but I please someone all of the time.
PRN (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 30, 2017
huge facility, newly renovated very nice moral. Horrible management, a little unorganized, one of there patient care units is like one whole facility in its own, which is usually under staffed and poorly ran.
Nurse (Current Employee) – Indianapolis IN – January 24, 2017
Very nice building, that's well maintained. Staff in other departments (housekeeping, laundry and dietary) were always nice to work with and very welcoming. With the nursing staff, it was a 50/50 toss. Poor nurse management that was ill equipped to handle the day to day 'floor' nursing. Inadequately staffed to the point that it brought about resident care and safety issues. NEVER enough staff to provide the level of care that I would want for my loved one. No feedback for staff, no incentives, not the best pay in the markwt for skillsets. More often than not anyone with a pulse and an unincumbered license or certification could work there. Benefits for staff were extremely expensive, not comparable for the market. More often than not, no one held accountable. The only time management showed much intrest was when the facilty was due to have Sate present for survey or a resident's family member threatened legal action. Sad, sad place. I wouldn't recommend for a new to health care person.
The residents were amazing. The sense of satisfaction in giving your all. Nice building/grounds, doesn't have that 'nursing home' smell.
Rate of pay isn't comparable, lack of skilled, knowledgeable nursing management. High turn over rates, short staffing, poor CMS ratings. Horrible work life balance. Health benefits are way expensive.
Unit Coordinator, RN (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 23, 2016
The buildings and entire village creates a beautiful place to work. Many of the co-workers are great people and often work together as a team. Pay is good, very comparable for other LTCs, and a generous amount of paid time off is allowed to be earned.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 20, 2016
Westminster is a great assisted living/ nursing home to work at. The staff honestly cares about the wellbeing of the residents. I learned how to properly care for residents at Westminister. The most enjoyable part of this job is caring for the residents.
shift manager (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 18, 2016
Make monthly calendars for activities for the residents. Perform daily interactions with up to 30 residents daily. Set up trips for out to lunch or shopping with residents. Hardest part was getting close to the residents and they pass away. The most enjoyable was the way the residents' eyes would light up to just have company.
