RESIDENT ASSISTANT - PIONEER's BOULDER MEADOWS ASSISTED LIVING
Pioneer Medical Center is looking for new and experienced Resident Assistants, to join our Assisted Living team.
RA's are a meaningful part of our residents' days and lives. This requires people who are caring and patient, physically fit (requires dependable attendance, lots of walking, lifting, pushing & pulling), and have an excellent teamwork attitude. The work includes a combination of helping residents get to meals & back to their apartments, checking in on them, and some housekeeping of their apartments. They see you more often that they see their doctors or their families, so your smile and your care mean a lot to them!
At Pioneer's Boulder Meadows the Resident Assistants work a repeating 2-week schedule of two 12-hour shifts one week, and four 12's the next.
The schedule for this job opening is Monday 6pm - Tuesday 6am & Friday 6 am-6 pm. Then every two weeks this person works Saturday & Sunday 6am - 6pm. That one overnight shift & the weekend shifts pay $1/hour extra. All team members work their share of holidays.
