Avis d'employé sur Extendicare
A good transition from public/food industry jobs to health care setting
I have worked in many jobs where employers have questionable work ethics and will be hard to enforce fair employee policies especially with no union.

It is time constrained, must be able to work independently and prioritize daily duties. It can be very stressful but the result/end-of-the-day can be very rewarding as cooking quality food for an older generation while practicing and challenging work ethics can feel immensely gratifying.

i worked in the communications department at Extendicare as a contract employee. My manager and co-workers were eager to learn and to help me succeed in my role. Despite the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 virus, our team worked well together and played a significant role in communicating the measures Extendicare has taken to protect its staff and residents. I would highly recommend this organization.
Good co-workers, making a difference, feeling appreciated.
Occasional weekend work.
