There is so much room for growth with this company. I work with awesome co-workers who are very supportive of each other. We work as a team and are able to accomplish any task given to us. We see each other as family!

I worked at White Oak @ North Grove for over a year. Beautiful facility friendly staff. Andy Nelson is the best administrator I’ve had the pleasure to work for. At North Grove your not surrounded by co workers but by family. If I wasn’t moving out of state I would still gladly be working there. Great place for Residents and staff. 💗💗💗💗

A current employee with high expectation when it comes to caring for the residents I am responsible for. A lot of new hirees are not told the truth when it comes to case load and they leave. Most CNAs are helpful but all have seem to be tired mentally, physically and psychologically! New management but no new changes toward the staff who work tedious hours with huge amts of responsibility. Seeing a lot of staff sitting and playing on their phones, nurses are mean to certain CNAs, unfair with giving of task and refuse to help certain CNAs. The atmosphere has changed so much compared to how it once was three years ago. Full timers are getting scarce and the part timers are just doing enough to get by because they can. No respect to those with seniority or experience. Management could be better toward those who have been there for them. Two or one person (CNAs) on each floor at night -- the morale is getting lower and lower, and no one cares enough to allow those who wish to work, to work. Have been told they were not needed. So untrue! Working short is the agenda of the day. Good luck if you choose to work here! It's not the staff that causes the problems when you have an insufficient AMT. State turns a deaf ear....concerning staffing. No help!
Most are hard working CNAs!/Can't beat them!
Most new CNAs are lazy, smart alecky and temporary. Not invested!

White Oak is a very friendly company. I enjoy working with them. There are times that my job was hectic , however it was due mostly to traffic. Also loading times were delayed. They work hard and the best that the can to keep your routes on a timely basis.
Working together to meet the need of each patient.
CNA (Former Employee) – Charleston, SC – May 9, 2018
A great home like environment working together to meet the need of each patient through compassion and love. Through physical therapy and the activities department, patients have something to look forward to and are able to keep up their strength.
CNA (Former Employee) – Shelby, NC – April 7, 2018
White oak of Shelby is not a good place to work. The nurses treat the CNAs as though they are not human beings. They talk to them any kind of way. The turnovee rate is high. The DON does not care about suggestions to make the work enviroment better. The patients are neglected and I would high discourage anyone seeking employment and more importantly DO NOT PLACE YOUR ELDERLY FAMILY MEMBERS IN THIS FACILITY!!!
Do not work here! The nurses are very disrespectful and have attitudes and don't talk to people in a professional manner. Staff is very childish and unprofessional. Management plays favoritism and there is a lot of unfair treatment. Everyday there is a shortage in staffing and you have to break your back doing double the work. The point system is unfair and they are always moving people around and there is no team work your on your own. Everyday somebody is telling on someone else to try to get people in trouble. Don't waste your time.
Hated every minute of it. Was expected to give 6+ showers a day plus take care of my other patients. You have to write statements on every thing you do and they are quick to give you grievances no matter the situation. So glad I left.
A typical day at work includes deciding how many CNAs are needed for the shift and where I need to send them as related to the number we have. I supervise the overall running of the facility on my shift and handle any problems that may arise. I am ultimately responsible for each resident and must make sure they are treated the way they should be. I also do a lot of computer work such as care reviews, physician orders, and chart reviews. I have learned a lot of management skills and how important it is to treat each resident with respect. The work culture is very stressful in that staffing is always an issue. We have problems keeping nursing staff and CNA staff. This makes it hard to assure proper resident care. The hardest part of the job is determining schedules and dealing with the unsatifaction of staff when they don't like their assignments. I absolutely love caring for these elderly residents and being able to get a smile out of them. It gives me deep satisfaction to know I have brightened their day.
Reduced price meals, no week-end work unless you're on call
Poor chance for advancement and at times being promised something and then being "passed over."
Enjoyed working for White Oak Manor. Environment was pleasant to work in. Worked well with others, nursing staff was helpful Would acccomodate you promptly if a problem arises Sometimes they were short staffed.
