Appalling
Dining Room Server (Former Employee) –  Williamsburg, VAMarch 2, 2019
Since the end of 2018, the dining room staff has gone down. Everyone feels they're overworked and underpaid. Servers are quitting left and right because they don't feel cared for and feel like they are fighting an uphill battle. Supervisors are having to step in and fulfill the role of waiters because the company doesn't seem to try hard enough to hire more staff. Management claims that they don't get enough applications and say that people don't show up for interviews.

There is a Marketing department for a reason. If you cannot find people to run the dining room, maybe use some of the hundreds of thousands of dollars residents pay to live there to advertise jobs. What will happen when the last server quits? Will they refund the residents their meal plans?

Unless the food is made by their one executive sous chef, the quality is rather lackluster for the amount of money the residents pay. All the other cooks barely make passable food and when a resident complains about the quality, they are given non answers and hardly anything is done to improve the way each cook makes their food. If a resident likes steak but doesn't like the steak here, they shouldn't have to change their diet to find something more palatable. Let them eat steak that is cooked properly.
Pros
Free food (quality depends on cook). Free gym. Pretty community.
Cons
Overworked. Low morale.

Williamsburg Landing
Dining Room Server (Current Employee) –  Williamsburg, VAAugust 19, 2018
The whole property went down hill. It could be ran more Smoove. I feel for the workers. the ones that's still there are suffering with no help. You would think management would step in and have there employees back and listen to them when they tryna tell them what will make Williamsburg Landing a better place.

Stressful Environment
Rounds Cook (Former Employee) –  Williamsburg, VAJune 17, 2018
If you have no life, then this is the perfect place for you. It was OK before the contract company (Flik Lifestyles), but after that it quickly went down hill. The place is full of elderly people that need to retire and give the opportunity for others to move up. Super high turnover rate. If you have an opinion, please keep it to yourself because if management did not come up with the idea, it is meaningless.

The best thing about this job is the nice Holiday Bonus that the residents provide for the staff and you eat good every day.
Pros
Christmas Bonus, free food, getting to know the residents
Cons
Management, scheduling

Nutrition Analyst (Former Employee) –  Williamsburg, VAMay 23, 2018
Depending upon your field this can either be a stressful place or an advancement in your career as a specialist. Working with the geriatric community is always rewarding.

If you like working in a toxic environment.....
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Williamsburg, VAFebruary 16, 2018
Then this would be the place for you. Administration is nice to your face and not so nice behind your back. Training provided isn't good at all. You're basically thrown on the floor without having been oriented to the floor you're working. However, the patient ratio IS one of the best. Support from upper management is lacking. If you're not one of those kiss butt type of people, you would not be welcome here.

The most enjoyable part of the job is definitely the residents. The Landing itself isn't a bad place to work, but the Health and Rehab part of it is a different story altogether.

Pay is very competitive, and the benefits are excellent. But, if you are the type of person that has a conscience, this wouldn't be the place for you.

So many current workers that have been there for quite some time are unhappy. The question is to ask "why"?
Pros
Residents, food is good
Cons
Cutthroat Environment

Back stabbing and poor management
LPN (Former Employee) –  Williamsburg, VADecember 30, 2017
Don’t waste your time they do not care about their employees and Pay sucks. The most important thing to CEO is how to make money and paying their employees less money for a job well done.
Pros
Discounted meals
Cons
No support system
