"Worked for Holiday for 8 years, been promoted and developed wonderful relationships in the Senior Community. New GM comes in with ZERO experience and had huge jealousy issues, her 2 months of being there she decided to lie and terminate me. No questions asked, witnesses confirmed she lied and corporate leader didn’t question. Went above and beyond my role and they threw me out, with no questions asked! Residents were devastated, along with staff and they didn’t care. Holiday will always struggle with new Independent companies popping up. Why? Because the way they treat their employees, karma. Holiday, as a horrible reputation with hiring egotistical monsters as corporate leaders. I’m glad to be out of there. Working for another Senior Independent community, has really shown me how dysfunctional holiday really is. They will never be able to recover from the negative reputation. It’s really sad, what Holiday has turned in to."

Sales Leader
in Kenner, LA

"Out of my 20 years of marketing and sales, I can truly say that this is the WORST company that I have ever worked for in my professional career. I do NOT recommend them to ANYONE seeking employment! You will work a minimum 9-12 hour day shift (if you are lucky) or longer, demanded to work 6-7 days a week with no compensation, and belittled and micromanaged daily by upper and middle managers (especially regional sales director). Residents are NOT treated with the respect they deserve, especially when their rent is raised routinely with nothing to show for it. Facilities are NOT kept up to code. We had two fires in our kitchen and the fire drill is a JOKE, one day someone is going to die because a fire will break out at night and these poor residents will have no means to escape and with NO help because there is NO security or management on premise! SCARY! When you mention the poor work ethic of other employees or the faulty conditions of the facility, you are told by regional sales director to lie and just sell the place. I had my Regional Sales Director tell me, and I quote: “I used to work for a skilled nursing facility that had maggots coming out of people’s wounds and I STILL sold the place, so this should be easy for you.” Wish I was making this up but unfortunately that is the scary truth! They will tell you to do anything to make the sale, even promise and lie to the resident - tell them it is the last apartment available, when you have 7 others just like it. I even had corporate tell me to offer a hospital social worker $650 “incentive’ to refer to us - which is is not only unethical, but EXTREMELY illegal! When I told them no, and that I would not abide by these tactics, I was told that I was not a team player. I have morals and my integrity is everything to me. My best decision ever was when I told them that I quit and walked off the job without notice - something I have NEVER done in my 20 career. Simply put - RUN AWAY FROM THESE FOLKS!!!!"

"This review is about a very bad company who loses great people or just chases them away. Yes I mean Holiday Retirement and this is coming from a resident aid. First off, just about every resident here is upset over losing the most wonderful and warm maintenance man we have ever seen. He was kind and talked to everyone, not to mention repairing everything right away and caring how our property looked. His name was Steve and if he reads this we all want you to know we all loved you so much. Shame on this company."

"Terminated by Holiday Retirement after two years of excellent service and everything done on time because I finally said no to the most unfair request ever by a new area manager. First off I get a new area manager who changes my hours after two years with no regard for my wife's health issues. Then I get terminated after asking for help after being asked to rebuild a smoke, roach and bed bug completely gutted apartment by myself on top of all my other workload. Worst company ever, no help, no care for residents and arrogant upper management who do all their work behind a computer."

"I've worked for Holiday Retirement for 1 year and I've loved the opportunity I've had to work alongside my husband on a day-to-day basis. Our staff is great and we love our residents. Our upper management has taken good care of us and I can't imagine working anywhere else."

"Work load is extremely overwhelming. Company expects apartments to be rent ready in 2 days regardless of the condition or other duties that must be completed. Totally unrealistic."

"The most unprofessional professional experience of my life."

What do you like about working at Holiday Retirement Corp.?

"The thing I liked best about working for Holiday is knowing that I now have enough material for a book about screwed up corporations."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Run, don't walk, to any other job you can find. Or stay unemployed."

What don't you like about working at Holiday Retirement Corp.?

"This experience is going to be an excellent chapter in a book I am writing about horrible people and the death of decency in America today. Where oh where do I start 1. Three CEOs in 4 months. Yeah, you read that right: 4 months. 2. Recently installed CEO went from interim CEO to CEO with absolutely no notice to the employees of the company. 3. Management is through fear, intimidation and threats. And bagel throwing. The CEO recently was angered by a co-worker and threw a bagel at her. He was COO at the time, so the obvious response was to elevate him to the top position at the company! This was not the first time he has thrown something at a co-worker, and despite his recent letters of apology to two people in the company who he has abused, it won't be the last. Can you say anger management 4. You know the term revolving door as it applied to turnover Well, revolving door doesn't even begin to describe the turnover in the field and in the home office. I guess revolving door would work, but you'd have to be picturing the revolving door in the Superman movie that goes around at about 100 miles per hour as he changes from Clark Kent into his tights. 5. The CEO, despite his efforts to appear terrifying and powerful, is weak and impotent in reality, as the company is controlled by a hedge fund manager who cares only about $$ - not about residents, not about employees, just the almighty dollar. 6. The new CLO was a ten year associate at an LA firm before being hired by Holiday. A ten year associate. I'd never heard of one of those before. Good choice! 7. Speaking of that, the new head of HR recently moved back home to Denver and took the only two personal items in his office with him. Hmmm... no trouble there. Nothing to see ma'am, move along. 8. See class action lawsuits. 9. Everyone who works there who is a decent, intelligent person is constantly scouring the internet looking for another job. You want to see how dedicated your people are to you Look at their desk. If they don't have a picture of their kids somewhere in their work space, they are looking to leave. I have never seen more offices devoid of personal effects than I have at Holiday. 10. The only conditions under which I'd recommend someone take a job at this company is if they were completely broke and could no longer afford housing and food for their children. No wait, I take that back. I'd live under a bridge with my kids and cats before working there again."

Senior Recruiting Manager
in Lake Oswego, OR

What do you like about working at Holiday Retirement Corp.?

"I have a passion for recruiting. I loved working with hiring managers to gather requirements and filling their needs in a timely manner. I also liked learning and help others to be their best."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Really think about how much you are willing to sell your soul for a company that could careless about you."

What don't you like about working at Holiday Retirement Corp.?

"IT is the tail wagging the dog. No one cares about the employees and they can be treated like trash. A VP cussed people out on the floor and later was promoted! Way too political and inefficient. Even though they recognize being inefficient, they would rather be inefficient then take the time to implement a better solution."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would implement standard best practices, focus on employee retention as much as recruiting. Give more praise and recognize employees for their work. I also would be available and open to employee concerns."

HRIS Manager

What do you like about working at Holiday Retirement Corp.?

"My co-workers were nice people. The working environment was adequate."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Know exactly your role and job description. Keep an eye on who else is doing the same role and make sure your resume is up-to-date."

What don't you like about working at Holiday Retirement Corp.?

"No support, guidance or budget. Hired me to do a job that is already being done by another group. Later hired executive to take over my role. Company does not have a clue how to organize its workforce. I should have sued this company for wasting my time and putting a black mark on my resume. The management group composes of cold arrogant people."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Do not hire people and not support them to succeed. You basically hired an army of people from various locations in the US and terminated them because your preference of company direction changed. Ohh well...sorry guys but you're out on the streets. Your company values are just words written on paper and are optional."

Community Manager

"It is very difficult to keep a positive attitude when your company does not seem to care about you or respect your opinion."

What do you like about working at Holiday Retirement Corp.?

"I love my staff, my peers, and most of all, my customers - the greatest generation of retired seniors!"

What don't you like about working at Holiday Retirement Corp.?

"Although the compensation bonuses are adquate at best, Holiday Retirement does nothing from the top down to improve employee morale, make me feel appreciated, or recognize the daily battles I face at the Resident (customer) level. And, worst of all, Holiday Retirement does not promote from the ranks at the Community level its a dead-end job!"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Bring all Community Managers together for frequent seminars, workshops, training, team building exercises, and performance recognition awards so they can keep up their skills or acquire new ones."
