All staff (Former Employee) – Everywhere – 26 September 2018
They squeeze their staff when short and lose good people. They haven't quite figured it out yet that if you take care of your people, they will take care of your business. Communication with staff is very poor.
The way the managers treat the employees is disgusting. They are unprofessional and don’t know what they are doing. Always understaffed and on top of that underpaid. Managers don’t care about the employees well being and barely care about the residents well being. Both the employees and residents aremiserable which just makes a very toxic environment. One you definitely don’t want to bee in.
I loved volunteering at the Walden circle retirement centre, because it gave me an opportunity to hang out with such nice people and get to know them, talk to them. in a way, this gave me experience for my future job as a social worker also.
Bad management with no vision Poor quality meals which is not gourmet No communication between departments Low pay rate for staff and company expect good service Short staff and always using agency who gets a better pay rate than staff which is not fair Benefits are basic and are not the best Residents are always complaining about the food quality and poor management skills
I love working with elderly people. Everyday is a new day serving them, thinking that they are my grandparents. Typical days of work is serving meals for the residents, making them feel that the place is their home. doing jobs that related to the work.
As far as the hours went for the Monday-Friday dishwasher they were solid. 8 hour shifts five days a week and the hours were more set than a regular dish-washing position at a restaurant. Only had to work weekends if requested and was able, as well benefits for the position.
Can only speak for the kitchen but there were many issues that over the year were constantly addressed but never solved. Most importantly for the week day dish was the finishing time which was supposed to be 8 p.m. Over the year it became manageable to get close to the time but not on a daily basis. There were many variables that could pop up such as events that would not be discussed before hand which would give a lot of extra work.
They wouldn't normally pay past shift time even when extra work would cause leaving on time a very improbable task. Finally quit after a year of trying very hard to make it work with them and seeming it was a very lost cause.
