I attended a public event hosted at St. John's and was shocked by how I was treated by its director of community of events in what can only be characterized as an unprofessional, discourteous, uncivil and vulgar manner.  Little did this worthless employee understand how she represented the brand and reputation of St. John's, degraded its mission and lost the support of potential major gift donors.

We were told by this company (and others) that they could not afford to pay for entertainment for it's residents, and only provided music emtertainment if it was done by volunteers.  Keep that in mind when you sign your monthly check to these extravagant and costly facilities . We located our loved one at another facility because of this cheap policy/attitude by mega - rich companies.

My mom was a resident of St. John's for around 5 yrs. She lived on Chapel Court, then Moorberg Cottage, and was cared for by St. John's Hospice at the very end of her life. She could not have received better care anywhere.

After a fractured femur, my doctor arranged for me to have physical therapy and occupational therapy through St. John's Home Health. I am so very grateful for the help I received. It would have been a harship to travel to therapy. The therapists were professional, knowledgeable, and very kind and patient. The road to recovery was so much easier having them to help. I cannot thank them enough.

My parents were in the vista until dad passed and then we moved mom into to Mooreberg cottage. The staff at both facilities did a great job!! Especially with mom as she could be difficult at times. The professionalism and care mom received allowed me the joy of being a daughter and not a caretaker.

Asked me to resign to work for them then they refused to hire me! - I was working in their facilities as a pool CNA through Yellowstone and they continuously solicited me with job offers ( violating the contract with Yellowstone) I quickly learned it was a good opportunity and sat down with Kylie who offered me an official position and asked I leave Yellowstone. I resigned from Yellowstone and was not allowed to work my two weeks. When I returned to Kylie she stated they couldn't hire me because I hadn't finished my two weeks. Since then I have applied for multiple positions and been immediately denied with the line they managed to fill the positions which are all still open. Very good place to work but the HR department seems unethical in my experience.

St. John's is incredibly accomodating for those vulnerable populations they serve and I believe as a community they strive to care and provide for all residents despite financial and social status. I have had excellent experiences with this ministry in private and professional dealings and would highly recommend for care of a loved one as well as for employment.

The way I was treated while working there was HORRIBLE!!!! I was being bullied and harrassed by coworkers and Management did NOTHING about it. Everything I did while working was as perfect as I could get it. My residents were well taken care of. But because my coworkers didn't like me for whatever reasons they made my work experience with St. John's misrable. So stay away from them. Cause if you don't FIT IN the staff will run you out and make you look bad to Managment!!!

I thought staff was very rude. I went to talk to someone about my dad comeing to live at St John's. Staff was rude. Refused to show me areas of the facility. Told me some of my questions were out of line. I was looking for the best facility for my fathers care. I obviously didn't choose St Johns. When a business refuses to show you where the their patients eat or answer questions regarding their facilities there is something wrong.
