“Senior management out of touch with reality”
1 of 1 people found this helpful
Pros
Wonderful residents and many good people
Cons
Where do I start? The pressure for sales is crazy. They expect nightime blitz and reverse blitz calling with an insane amount of effort that an idiot could tell you will have very minimal results. No trust in trifecta to understand own market to know how to generate leads and get people to move in.
Advice to Senior Management
Laura needs to spread some of the $1.2 million dollar bonus she got last year to the people who have to put in 60 hours + a week to jump through rediculous hoops.

Assisted Living Concepts Residence Director in Austin, TX: (Past Employee - 2010)
“determination didn't win this time”
2 of 2 people found this helpful
Pros
1. You will appreciate future jobs much more.
2. As with any job in geriatric care, you are afforded the opportunity to touch the lives of seniors.
3. The company offers MANY trainings....They are great if you want to know anything and everything there is to know about high pressure sales! That is the ONLY thing for which you will receive adequate training.
Cons
1. Staff to patient ratio is INSANELY low. There is a formula for how many labor hours you are allowed for care attendants, cooks, maintenance, & housekeeping. If they can't do it all (which is impossible) the salaried Director gets to pick up the slack.
2. Directors are not permitted to make any decisions on their own. They must seek divisional level approval to terminate an employee!
3. There is miles of red tape wrapped around everything that needs to be accomplished. Going through several months of Texas summer with no A/C because it took an act of congress for repairs/replacement to be approved is just crazy.
4. The budgets are so low that residents are subjected to substandard quality in all aspects of their lives.
5. Corporate does not consider local markets when assessing the needs of an individual home. (Mostly because they don't assess homes individually, they seem to think that all homes should run successfully based on the "cookie cutter" model dreamed up by some big wig executive who has never actually attempted to wotk at the house level and really assess what it will take for success!)
Typing this just makes me angry and hurts my heart for the residents who are left to the mercy of these corporate giants that could care less about them.
If you are in this industry for the purpose of CARING for the geriatric population, then this is not the right company for you!
If you, however, are a high pressure sales person who cares about nothing other than the thrill of making a sale...hey....Good luck to you! You will make sale after sale and do it all for free, because if the house doesn't maintain occupancy, you're never going to see the bonuses you are promised. Your financial success is dependent upon the currect residents being happy, well cared for, and sticking around.
Advice to Senior Management
Give up while you still have money in your pockets! You are in enough deep sh*t across the country right now. People are starting to notice. Sell out to someone who is in this industry for the right reasons.

“Poor support from the top down”
1 of 1 people found this helpful
Pros
Love the dedicated team who provide great care for residents under difficult circumstances
Cons
Dedicated LTC professionals are not allowed to do what's best for their residents when all the corporate cares about is money. It takes money to make money. You cheap out, you get what you pay for.
Advice to Senior Management
Get back to doing what you started out with and what grew your business.....caring for people.

“Hardest and most underpaid job ever”
Pros
In house co-workers that work so hard and do the best they can with what they are given which is very little and residents and their families who depend on us to care for their loved ones.
Cons
Upper management only cares about a couple of things...money and themselves. Keep raising rents and using pay increases as part of the reason, only ones getting pay raises is the upper management. The in-house employees do all the work and never even so much as a good job or thank you from them. I have never come across a place that has to do with caring for the elderly and cares so little. very sad!
Advice to Senior Management

“Cant wait to get out of here!”
Pros
most of my co workers made it easier to come to work every day
Cons
the pay sucks for all we do. we pass meds,do wash,serve food and wipe bottoms none stop asked to fax med orders and do cycle fills for the nurse as if we have the time. we are caregivers, dinning servers,bus boys,laundeary assistent,dont forget we have to plung the toliet and clean carpets if you work 2nd or 3rd shift if you want to send a resident out because of a fall you have to make phone call after phone call just to get an ok(as resident remains on the floor 20-30min) before you can even call an ems to take them to get looked at. Med carts are handed to people with liltte to no training with meds. the turn around is dumb founding on psa's i cant even tell you how many have been throw the doors since i started. people get put in a managment spot then moved with no notice and a pay cut. this has happend two time already this year already and the poor ladys this happend to are great and hard workers!

“Should value employees more & try to retain them rather than continuing to have turnover & rehire”
1 of 1 people found this helpful
Pros
Decent benefits. But those continue to slowly decline in ways also.
Cons
Working inside a community is wonderful! Rewarding and challenging. And a blessing to be a part of a big family - inside the walls of the community. Cons outside the walls...too many to list.
Advice to Senior Management
Respect & retain your management. There is too much house-level management turnover. Treat them as professionals & not as children. Be positive. Are all those lists, reports, deadlines, data entry really necessary in all areas? Look at your systems and seriously determine if they are necessary or counter productive and nost cost effective. Or could things (systems/procedures) be simplified so management in the building can get back to what's important - The Current Residents living in these communities PAYING YOUR SALARY!

You are constantly working to never make any of the corperates happy. Work work work and no praise or satisfaction from anyone. Get minimum wage with no raises even with perfect record.

“They will run your life...work is all you will do.”
2 of 2 people found this helpful
Pros
Working with families and perhaps making a differences for them.
Cons
Very long hours...conference calls are held after hours and you have to be in your house. These calls are not helpful...they are very degrading. You are told the same things over and over again. Nothing positive is said. You are beaten down. Numbers are all they care about. It is not about the seniors that they care about...it is the numbers of apartments that are filled. If you do not do the numbers...you are gone. I have seen good sales people beaten down. There is no loyality with this company. Only a number game. Senior Management comes in and stay in the offices and do not assist you in anyway other than what needs to be improved. Laurie Bebo came into the house and was upset over the customer service we gave and was not being charged for...such as having meat cut up for a resident!!!
Advice to Senior Management
Learn to work with the house management team.
Learn to know how to encourage and grow your team. Its wonderful to hear about a good job done once in while. Ever hear about team building?

1 of 1 people found this helpful
Pros
I enjoyed the residents, families, and the medical providers in our area. I enjoy working with seniors. The caregivers were very hardworking.
Cons
They do not accept Medicaid and they were in the process booting out residents who had lived their for quite some time. Lack of training for employees. Contracts for employees and residents were meaningless.
Advice to Senior Management
There is no leadership at ALC.

“Demanding and Disrespected by Regional Staff.”
Pros
Residents
PSA's, cook and Med Techs
Cons
Overly Demanding, Disrespected by Regional Staff, Non-caring and insensitive regional staff regarding residents concerns and conditions. Cared more about occupied units not people.
Advice to Senior Management
Become more sensitive to the day-to-day operations at the facility as well as the residents. Be less vocal about occupied units.

“Worst experience of my life”
Pros
The residents and the families.
Cons
Assisted Living Concepts is a money hungry company that doesn't care about the well-being of the residents. They only care about themselves and getting more residents into the building. When there is a problem corporate does not take care of it and will take advantage of the elderly people in every possible way they can.

“A Great Job if you have no brain and enjoy being micromanaged”
1 of 1 people found this helpful
Pros
The residents are really fun to care for and work with. Most of the Med Aides and PSA's have a great work ethic. If you are lucky to have a great Trifecta Team (which not many houses are), it is a plus.
Cons
If you like to be thrown into a job with little to no orientation, have ever changing expectations, and pointless conference calls 3-5 days/week, then this is the job for you!! If you have the characteristics to be a puppet and cannot think for yourself, then you will be a perfect fit! In addition, if you enjoy getting put down and yelled at during conference calls because your house isn't full, or if you enjoy working off the clock and sacrifing time with your family, you will definately enjoy this job!! Also, be prepared to use your own money to purchase the basic items you need to perform your job, because you will not get reimbursed for 8 weeks, if at all.
Advice to Senior Management
If the company would be smart enough to do a cost anaylsis of turnover with regards to the Trifecta Team members they would realize how much money they are losing with their current management style.

“The most miserable job ever!!!!!!”
1 of 1 people found this helpful
Pros
Taking care of the Residents
Cons
If you are looking for a new job, DO NOT apply with Assisted Living Concepts unless you have no home life, enjoy being yelled at every day, favor micro-management, and love endless, non-productive conference calls every day of the week. Leadership teams are horrible. Senior Management have no clue how to actually work in one of the residences. They attract new employees buy selling the bonus programs and benefits, but you will never actually get a bonus because they are almost impossible to achieve.
Advice to Senior Management
All of the Senior Management team should be ashamed of themselves.

Pros
Will get some good benefits after 90 days, the residents are why we are there, the employees at the house are great.
Cons
MICRO MANANGEMENT NIGHTMERE. Unproductive conference calls. No confidence in sales managers. Have to get permission for every decision made. The costs are NOT competetive with the market. They don't research or listen to advise when dealing with objections. If you don't get the move in you will be highly disrespected. If only I could reach through the phone on some of the calls I have been on!Turn over is crazy! When will the upper management look at the big picture and see that the way it is being run needs to change! Definitley can see this company going bankrupt! FYI! You will work weekends, you will have late night calls! DROP EVERYTHING and get those numbers up! Yeah right! Back door will be OPEN! You will never be good enough!
Advice to Senior Management
Your numbers never change! Look at the reports! Something is not working! Stop doing what you always have done and make some change! Unless of course you are satisfied with the occupancy! Which we all know very well you are not! Your program of building census is unproductive! Period!

08/30/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: The Jewel House is only interested in separating money from the residents. They have had a revolving door of management (5-6)in the past year. It is critically understaffed.
The food served is devoid of any fresh fruit or vegetables. They are totally non-responsive to residents needs.
My mother frequently would have to wait hours before any attendant was able to assist her. She sometimes would have to sit in her own bowel movement for hours.
When concerns were brought to the attention of Assisted Living Concepts, their solution was to intimidate and deny.
There were two incidents in which the Jewel House employees stole money from the residents' rooms. The employee that robbed my mother was caught trying to cash her checks by the local sheriff but the Jewel House manager denied it ever occurred.
Not a pleasant way to spend your final years.
I am glad there were other place for my mother to live.
