Working for Holiday Retirement

There’s something very satisfying about working for a company that cares for seniors. Where everything you do, in whatever capacity, is contributing to someone else’s happiness.

Our seniors aren’t the only ones benefiting from your employment here – you will, too. If you have a passion for helping others, we’d love to talk to you.



As a Senior General Manager, you are responsible for the day-to-day operations of underperforming or challenged independent senior living communities, which includes 1) developing an engaged and productive team; 2) ensuring high resident satisfaction; and 3) ensuring strong financial performance at each community to which you are assigned. You will provide the vision, leadership, and expertise necessary to ensure continued success at such communities after you transition leadership to your successor General Manager. You will also play an essential role in strategic projects that help drive the financial success of your assigned region. You will:
  • Transition an underperforming team to a high-performance one, including evaluating, hiring, coaching and performance management of employees.
