How long have you worked at Western Reserve Masonic Community?
I began working at WRMC in April 2019 and I am glad to be here.
What makes Western Reserve Masonic Community different than other senior living communities?
Here you work as a team. There is that feeling of comradery and we have fun while doing our job. You get to have a real connection with the community members and the other staff members.
What do your daily responsibilities include?
I do general cleaning, dusting, vacuuming, emptying trash, cleaning the floors and general straightening. This can be in community member’s rooms or in common areas. These are always done daily. If I am cleaning a community member’s room, the bathroom is very important and I need to make sure that I do areas such as the sink, shower, toilet, floor and all counters. I also have to remember to replace paper products and towels. Sometimes I work by myself and most of the time I work with a team.
What are some of your favorite benefits Western Reserve Masonic Community offers?
The benefits are fantastic. They gave away a car! I’ve never heard of that anywhere else before. You also get vacation time, or PTO and bereavement time too. There is the opportunity to put money in a 403B Plan. You never know what the economy will be like in a few years and when you may need that.
Sometimes you have the opportunity to get gift cards for good attendance. They will give us T-shirts and have food trucks just to say thanks for our hard work.
What would you tell a prospective applicant about Western Reserve Masonic Community?
This is a great company to work for! I would recommend that you come to work here. My advice to you is as long as you do your job and show up and work as a team, you’ll be fine. The incentives make you want to come to work every day and that makes you feel needed and appreciated.
Why do you love working at Western Reserve Masonic Community?
I had the chance to visit the Springfield Masonic Community and meet other people from the other communities. We were there for a Town Hall meeting. That was a good experience and we learned a great deal and had fun while we were there. We even got to see that some of the people work in a Castle and get to different locations by going through an underground tunnel!
More importantly, why I love working at WRMC, I feel appreciated! My boss really appreciates all of us! She is understanding and easy to talk to. She gives us the training that we need. She is very professional and always has our backs. I enjoy the community members and getting to know them and see them every day.
