Care Manager (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, CO – March 5, 2013
I loved working there with the residents and my coworkers. I did not like the management and how they treated their employees. My coworkers were excellent and my boss was a good man. I learned a lot about myself during my time there because I was asked to lead when we were short staff which was something I never did before. I was upset when I was let – more... go because it had nothing to do with my performance or attitude. The building was sold to another company and they decided to let a bunch of good workers go and keep a lot of bad managers and directors. – less

Interim Business Manager (Former Employee), Edgewood, KY – February 13, 2013
Pros: getting to know the seniors who lived there and being a part of their lives
Cons: poor management
The company was a great place to work when I was first hired. I truly loved my job and working with the Seniors who lived there. Toward then end of my employment the company had many internal problems that make the day to day working environment very difficult. Shortly after I left the company was sold out.
Care Manager (Former Employee), West Hills, CA – February 11, 2013
The people there are very professional, and nice! I loved assisting the residents and making them feel at home. I learned how to assist residents with Dementia and Alzheimer's and how to tend to every residents personal needs calmly, with love and patients. The hardest part of the job was when the residents passed away.
Coordinator (Former Employee), West Bloomfield Township, MI – January 23, 2013
Sunrise has been the worst job I have ever had. Alot of drama within departments and no rule followers. They want you there 60 hours a week to do others jobs. There is no morale for staff and the hiring is very lazy. They are always understaffed.
Care Manager (Current Employee), Broomfield, CO – January 18, 2013
Cons: not using my cna license
Sunrise is a fast paced environment. I have learned a lot about caring for people. My co-workers are friendly and helpful. I have not had much contact with management. The hardest part of my job is the challenging behaviors that some of the Dementia residents endure. The most enjoyable part of my job is finding a way to help a resident have a great – more... day. – less
two time ex employee (Former Employee), pittsburgh – January 16, 2013
The Place SUCKS..they preach team member credo, however corporate dont give a rats about you or your job security. Turnover sucks. You work in constant fear of losing your job. Your set up for constant failure. No help from HR corporate or in house. Its devastating how much they charge and what they put their employees through
I was set up by my line manager raised grievances only to have HR setting me up even further, false acusations, my dream job had turned into a nightmare... stay well away from this comapny :(

Care Manager (Current Employee), Charlotte, NC – January 16, 2013
Pros: the residents
Cons: they dont work around single moms
If I knew then what I know now I would have never applyed for this job. They are so out of wack with everything they do. There is not organization, People come in to wrok when they feel like it and leave when they want. Residents continually have unexplained bruises and falls. The residents are the only thing I love about my job.
care manager (Former Employee), Monroeville, PA – January 14, 2013
Sunrise was my first job in the field and honestly they were more laid back in the policies so it wasn't as stressful. It was a good place to decide if you wanted to be in the field as well because they give you many opportunities to learn new things.
