Support from management
Manager can be called by cordless phones.
Need more employees to make a team.
Freedom to work independently
Independent is a must.
Men and women are given equal task, no matter what gender you are.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Most employees are friendly but the company moto is friends are off the clock we are co-workers. Keep personal lives separate. This is a good moto to help keep employees focused.
Career growth is encouraged, there is tuition reimbursement.
Overall compensation for your work
Like most long term facilities the more you work the more you will get paid.
Office / Work Environment
Very clean and professional offices and staff.
Very neat and clean facility, beautiful landscapes, and wonderful artwork.
Shortage of employees causes long hard work days makes it difficult to have the energy to spend time with family. Everyday after work many employees have to come home and take a nap just to make dinner for the family.
As long as you are able to complete all task, dot all your I’s and cross all your T’s you will continue to work at Gurwin. If not you will be written up and fired.
Gurwin provides job opportunities for many handicapped and disabled employees.
If you like excitement and a challenge it’s definitely here, but that’s just Nursing.
Inclusive / Diverse
Many people from all over the world, lots of different accents, in all departments.
Suggestions for improvement
- More staff, I understand that Medicaid says how many Aides or nurses to a resident but these residents are sick they pay a large amount of money for this facility. The residents want more staff and drive the staff to work harder. They expect to get what they pay for.
What I like about the company
Gurwin is a great place to work, if they like you they will call you all the time. Cleanliness, conveniently located on Long Island, and salaries paid to non nurses.
What I dislike about the company
Difficult to take vacation, personal time, or sick leave. I’m asthmatic, unfortunately when I get sick I really get sick for more than one day and then I get written up. The write ups are rough because somethings in live you just can’t control.
