June 2019 • Lutz, FL

What I liked

There are 3 different shifts which allow you to work around your school schedule. I was given a lot of vacation time which everyone is able to do if you give the boss an early notice. In addition, part-time can earn paid time off and the residents are the sweetest people ever.

What I wish was different

Communication between coworkers and management is not the best.

Advice

Atria is the perfect place if you are a genuine and caring person because you can really make the lives of the residents better.
