What our users are saying about working for Brookdale Senior Living
It’s ok work environment
Every employee I worked with, including myself, worked way too hard for not enough pay. This caused many employees to become apathetic and developed a negative attitude towards their job. Which is terrible bc the main point of working there was to care for the elderly. I honestly think that if they upped the pay and maternity leave opportunities, the residents at Brookdale would receive far better care.
Loved Working with the individuals living there.. Did not love that i was expected to do more than my education allowed (even though i know how.. Was also told i was to lift individuals by myself who are total care.. Im 5ft tall and 95LBS) also had Emergency issues at home and was fired without being allowed to explain the Situation.
Working with the residents is amazing, but the management has favoritism, they say they don’t hire family but they do and then only pay attention to their needs, they don’t listen to what needs to be done
The upper management was lazy. Outside of that it was great.
Claim to be transparent, are not.
Great coworkers and not an uber competitive environment. Hard to move up if no clinical license. overall, there are many female leaders.
Corporate environment and mentality
I think the company has the potential to be very great but the individual buildings are the problem. Those people that they have in the leadership positions at the buildings are rude bullying and disrespectful.
Not a good company to work for. Upper management is awful, raises are extremely small...im talking 20 to 30 xenra and hoirs more, and this is an insult. Management is cold, unfeeling and downright untrustworthy. If they suddenly decide they don't like you..watch out...they will bully you and nitpick until you leave. This is company wide...look on glassdoor. Bad, bad, bad!
I returned to work when my baby was 6 weeks old. I was not permitted to pump for my exclusively breastfed infant. Was encouraged by female management to formula feed “like a normal mom” because they weren’t paying me to “play with my boobs”. I was able to pump once per 9 hour shift, on my lunch break, in my car! I was written up for doing so too!
Great care company, but hard to move up in.
Brookdale greenville has terrible management. Most employees don't give you the time of day if you fill in on another shift.
Really good. People are great and fun to work with
Not a lot of advancement opportunities for women
I’ve grown within the company. They are supportive in many ways. But do have flaws just like any other company.
As a resident programs coordinator, I led activities with anywhere from 3 to 100 residents living in the community. The joy of the job came from the rewarding work I created with the residents. There was much support from my regional director to train and encourage me in putting together a better program, with curriculum and computer based trainings and live annual trainings. I appreciated her support. However, in a situation that came up with one of my residents (sexual harassment) my immediate supervisor did not fully execute a satisfactory investigation, nor did upper level management (corporate) provide support for me. They handled the case to favor the resident over me, a part of the leadership team, and dismissed the case as if it were nothing. I was disappointed in this lack of responsibility and justice, and also in my lack of raises when discussed. I worked for an hourly wage that was below pay range because I loved working with the residents, but it was nothing close to what I should have been paid in the position. Overall, my experience was satisfactory. The only reason I remained was because of good peer relationship experiences and great opportunities to engage with the residents and enrich their lives.
I don't know that it was so much a problem for women as much as the company just sucks to work for in general.
Challenging place to work, difficult industry in general but very unmotivating leadership team. Unprofessional district managers, inappropriate executive directors and overall disappointment to the seniors in the community. Go shine your light somewhere else where you'll be appreciated.
Awful company, awful people.
Mostly female staff and management, reasonable accommodations made, but inflexible scheduling and low pay rates. No paid sick days, but paid time off available for full time employees.
Excellent company where you can work your way up!
One co-worker habitually calls women honey and sweetie. After I spoke to him and Hr about his touching habit,he smacked me on my rear end. He still works there and nothing has changed.
Work in nursing. The "lactation room" is a joke - a shower room with no sink, where they keep the shower chairs that residents use (people are supposed to clean these after each use but often don't). Getting a break to pump is like pulling teeth, people are rude and disrespectful about it. This is unfortunate, as nearly all our nursing staff is female.
Brookdale Senior Living, makes thousands of dollars per month on each resident but pretends to not have the money to pay a living wage to their care staff, while simultaneously piling on a huge workload and never showing gratitude. They overwork their managers in every department, pretend to provide support but don't actually do so, don't pay managers enough, are rigid about work hours, demeans that you take a break while also not giving you any opportunity to do so because you have to get 50 hours of work done in 37.5. There is no lactation room, and getting a break to express breast milk is nearly impossible. The people who work for this company are under appreciated and should be compensated for their dedication and love.
Don't do it!!!! They pay top dollar, but are consistently named one of the worst company to work for in America!
No growth too much drama.
Kitchen manager openly sexist and crude. Admits to hiring men over women and paying them more because they are better workers
Brookdale is awesome to its residents. It's absolutely horrible to its staff. There is rampant reverse racism, favoritism, and the gossip is horrid.
I love Brookdale...there are many different branches and many different employment opportunities.
Awful place to work with no respect given to employees. Bosses reward bad behavior for fear of losing employees but punish those who do their jobs well.
Lack of teamwork and disrespect really go a long way to poison an environment.
