We also found out that most of the higher up positions were handpicked. Two employees started off with a housekeeper position. From there they went to become bed coordinators. From there their next promotion was to site manager. When you go in the office to submit your resume for these positions, you were told that you could not apply because you did not have a degree. Finally they started telling everyone to finish out their degrees or have a degree. There was an incident where two people applied for the same position and the person who was hired had no educational background. But if you go by their rule or specifications for the job the person without the degree should not have even been able to submit the resume. So the person without education was picked for the specific job and was told that that must complete a degree.

But instead of coming to everyone the head person over everything is sneaking and talking to everyone he wants in management and telling them to make sure you get your degree because changes will happen.
We have housekeeper that are leaving the department
