    The anchorage pioneer home is an established retirement home with a happy and healty community. we also have unionized staff who are at the beck and call for residents 24/7 and 365 days a year. dont privatize retirement care because its cheaper by 10%. that 10% makes a difference.

    I was a worker up on till two weeks, when I first got there the training was horrible. I had barely got trained kinda had to learn on my own, I was working my hardest to get everything done in a timely manner. Me and a coworker was working one day and I was told that the general manager wanted to see me, which is weird because I had no idea who the general manager was at all. I was then very curious to what he could had wanted go into the office and he was making false statements on me and fired me right on the spot, even though I got hired right on the spot. Without any warning or written up they had let me go for no reason at all. He had told me it was because my attendance and I never showed up on time which was all lies because I showed up everyday and would take two buses everyday. They are very unprofessional and not good people at, all wouldn't recommend anyone to work there.
