Uniforms are used so no need to worry about dress code. Most staff members were friendly and helpful. A great direct supervising manager, and a horrible building manager who did not keep in line with the company practices.
Free parking, benefits
Experienced being under valued. Residents pay way to much and staff under paid. your integrity gets tested daily by companies operational requirements
Corporate favoritism, residents and staff undervalued.
The workplace environment was toxic. It wasn't what you knew, it was who you knew. General Manager was good at sitting in his office looking at social media all day. Not very many coworkers would give anyone outside their department any "hello" or "hey", It felt like there was always a tension there.It was hard to see a more qualified, hard working, respected team member overlooked for a younger naive employee who got their job by batting their eyelashes. The residents were the ones who were the most effected - they could see the foundation crumbling under their once stable foundation. If the team members and managers could get rid of the gossip and favourtism, it could be a tolerable place to work. But it would take a much stronger manager and team for this to happen.I was thankful for a job during the pandemic.
Close to bus stop
Always added extra work to do to an already busy day
Amica is one of the healthiest working environments i've been able to work in. All health care team members get along, and theres a diversity of people at Amica. Since there's only one nurse in the building at a time, it helps nursing students gain confidence for time management skills and leadership skills. That being said because theres only one nurse, sometimes it can be hectic.
Work environment, management
Only one nurse

I worked at Amica Riverside in Windsor for a short time and I learned alot and liked it. In-house training was a bonus.At the time 2017/18 the workload increased quite rapidly and more nursing care residents were being admitted, took some adjusting, eventually ok.Work culture: some favouritism, (you get that anywhere though), some accepted bullying (was reported) by specific staff (that was a bit tough to deal with, at times)....most employees in all departments were team oriented and got alongManagement: nursing dept- fair and approachableDOC: at that time, a bit temperamentalGM: above average, down to earth and hands onPay: reasonable Facility: well maintained I enjoyed my time there, I should have stayed longer, I resigned for personal reasons🙂
Constant communication, staff meetings
Not enough to complain about
Lies by supervisor on 2nd floor at unionville. Filipino trainer lie and gossip about you .Poor training .Low pay .Bad place for non Filipinos! !Toxic.
Residents are good
Lies, gossip, favouritism, fake smiles .Poor pay!
Fairly good pay since you can’t get tipped. Not terrible hours, latest I worked was 8:30-9. However management is terrible. Wouldn’t listen to staff when we voiced issues. Constantly understaffed and overworked. I know many people who worked 12hr shifts when they only agreed to 8. Went home crying a bunch lol
Fair pay, decent hours
Horrible management, constantly understaffed
According to senior nurses new management took over in the Wellness Department, last year, and they were as confused as I was with some of the things happening. I didn't stick around long enough to become senior staff. Demands to accomplish multiple tasks in a shift but not given the resources to complete them. Lots of lip service saying that they support you but no follow through. New staff are are told to do things different ways creating confusion. The needs to the clients increase but the staffing has stayed the same. Many residents are admitted with little to no history, care plans or in some cases even knowledge that there is a new resident arriving causing chaos for the staff. You are begging for basic supplies (cups, applesauce, spoons, wound supplies, a working BP or thermometer, etc.) on every shift. Training and staff meetings are practically non existent. I never went to a fire drill or had a checklist for my training shifts. You need to clean up after yourself (cleaners are left for you to use) in the staff bathroom/lounge because housekeeping does not clean that area which leaves the bathroom disgusting because no one cleans up after themselves. Schedules are all over the place and not posted the required two weeks in advance causing stress to casual staff and work-life balance. Nursing staff is afraid to document truthfully (especially with injuries that are caused by residents ie: bites or scratches) because they get pulled in to managers office saying not to document and then when something happens they ask why behaviors are not documented or managers - plus...
Fairly clean environment, Memory Care staff is the best!, Memory Care Activities are awesome!, Memory Care residents are well cared for.
No specific training or orientation model to follow causing confusion, High demands with low pay and support staff leaving residents to wait for care, High turnover rate and sick calls are not replaced.
I looked forward to this job and was disappointed when I found out the dining room was a joke,nothing but middle aged,micro managing gossipy women and a few younger girls with cell phones attached to their heads Virtually no clue how to deal with an aging clientele. Talked to them as if they were children and just barged into their rooms without knocking when doing meal service. Thank you to the 3 decent people, though ,with whom I worked.And praise for the steps in protecting all who entered there with strict covid 19 procedures
Management bullies staff, staff can be manipulating if you aren’t part of the group and the staff often ignore the residents pleas for assistance. Under paid, over worked and staff are required to work in the dining room daily even though they are psws. All in all, until the manager is replaced, it isn’t the most ideal place to work.
Fast paced environment. Critical decision making while working with a great team. Management is so supportive and they are approachable when you need them.
Amica Senior Lifestyles is a really great place for anyone in Health Care to work. Staff at the location I am employed at are friendly, knowledgeable, supportive and collaborative. Management are eager to help you succeed, patient, kind, understanding, encouraging and overall very positive to be around. Endless opportunities for continued education throughout the year.
Amica is a wonderful place to work. I enjoy my team, we always pull together and get the all tasks done safely, efficiently . Managers are down to earth. However there is NO OPPORTUNITY for advancement, growth...Which is very unfortunate as you lose very hard working, reliable, passionate, honest employees. As they seek advancement elsewhere

It is a rewarding job to work with the elderly, they have a lot that they themselves can teach you. Although, I find the management does not really care about anything other than you NEED to work when I say.

management is very friendly, so are most of the co-workers, residents are senior people so they just need be handled with extra care and patience. overall my work experience was lovely, will love to work again in future with them.
I use to work at Amica at Thornhill. This place is poorly mange. The staff will stub you in the back unless you are kissing up to management. The chef serves food that is old and there is a lot of Favourites of the chef he get to go home early and the chef punch him out. The Gm does not care about the residents. They are promised to be one on one care but it’s not 6 resident to 1 staff. Management Blair’s stafffor problems. If you don’t want to be stressed out or you are not phillipino you will get fired.
I really enjoyed working at Amica. I was in a management position and was treated very well. The staff was amazing as was the GM. I truly enjoyed the experience. Sometimes things can get busy and hectic but the team would come together. Good work/life balance.
