Carol Woods prides itself on creating a community of respect among employees and residents. People often decide to work at Carol Woods because of its competitive wages and robust benefits package; however, the sense of community, teamwork and ability to use one’s talents are the reasons people stay at Carol Woods for years.

Carol Woods employs more than 300 staff members. More than 25% of our staff has tenure of 5-15 years and more than a dozen employees have worked at Carol Woods for more than 20 years!

What makes Carol Woods such a great place to work? A staff development fund helps pay for employees’  education, including degree programs and professional development.  Scholarship checks for all high school and college employees who work in dining services are distributed when they graduate through our ‘Operation Graduation’ program.

On the clock volunteer opportunities allow employees to use their gifts and get to know residents and staff outside of their regular job by doing something extra like teaching a resident computer class or helping plan the annual employee appreciation picnic. Employees also receive meals at a discounted price in our employee cafe, and have access to our on-site fitness center and indoor-heated pool. And we recognize good work through perfect attendance awards, a ‘Stars’ program and by promoting from within. Carol Woods is also a leader in providing a "livable wage" in Orange County.
