It truly is a beautiful facility and the hardworking staff are amazing.
I am not writing about an experience as a patient at the facility, I am writing about an experience with the process for hiring.
A friend of mine, an amazing young woman who just turned 17, will be graduating high school this next spring. Last year as a Junior she took the initiative and was able to get her CNA license along with keeping her grades up and making highest honors. Her career goals are to go into nursing as she has a caring heart and loves helping people.
She applied at Sandalwood and was asked to come in for an interview. At the interview she was told that she had the position and that she would receive an email in the next few days about orientation.
She was so excited to work there, that she called all her friends and family and told them the great news and even turned down some additional job offers because she thought she had been hired.
She patiently waited, constantly checking her emails and finally a week later she received an email stating they had decided not to hire her, no explanation was given. The email was received on her birthday.
Instead of doing the descent thing and giving her a phone call, they very unprofessionally sent out an email.
If you were not going to give her a chance, you should have just told her that at the interview. OR picked up the phone like a professional and told her in person as soon as you knew you were not going to hire her, not waiting a week and then cowardly sending an email.
I just want the management at Sandalwood to know that you missed out on a wonderful opportunity by not giving my friend a chance. A young person, eager and willing to learn and work hard for your company. YES, you really missed out.
Our children are our future and it is very rare these days to find a young person with as much drive and ambition as she has. She will not let this get her down as she is too positive, she will move on and find a facility that deserves her, as you clearly do NOT deserve her.
