Stressful and High Pressure

No matter how well you did your job here, management would always focus on the negative. There is no encouragement to correct mistakes you make cause you are reminded daily. Not sure how management got to being there, but most of the upper staff is miserable and only smiles when you make a mistake. Very negative attitude

They are a great company if....

Coworkers really great, (except a couple hidden "employee of the years", that are actually abusive) Pay is okay, only thing is, they are NOT work life balanced and have no compassion for employees. They give you opportunity, but they'll take it away instantly if you have any other priorities outside the workplace. (Like your kids. Or your own health, the important things in life). They also have a pretty unprofessional way of communicating concerns. I've never been punished for anything via email, without being able to have a voice or being able to defend myself, til now. No real reason, no reply to any questions on their decision.. In my opinion, if you want security I'd find somewhere else that is serious about finding the right people for the job. . Too often management heads are bigger than their genuine interest in finding someone that is actually serious about their career and qualified for the role. It's unfortunate, but it happens a lot. Save yourself the tug of war. ... It's not about quality of care here. It's about managements need to feed the ego. If they would just look a little further than that, they'd see whats really going on. It's a shame. Merry Christmas.

Sad Excuse for Management

This company has a below par management team. No ideas will be heard, no one will listen, you will not be cared for and you are looked upon as just another fee to keep the company alive. I highly suggest to stay away from this company as a current employee. It is run by money hungry, power hungry people who do not care about their residents whatsoever. The sense of family and love was sent out the window a long long time ago and was replaced with dollar signs and suit and ties.

People are fun

The people you work with are the best part. No wage increases in the almost two years I worked there, management doesn’t make goals for progress or to help you succeed and grow within the company.

Fast paced but lots of educatioal learning

Fast pace workplace. Management provides enough support for staff. New staff get multiple orientation to ensure that they are ready to work the floor independently.
