Great Salary! Lots of shifts but not the best workplace
Resident Care Aide (Ancien employé) –  New Westminster, BC10 avril 2019
First of all, I worked on this facility for a short period of time. If im not mistaken 3months. Having said that, I was able to witness and experience myself the pros and cons and willing to share them.

Honestly, I didn't have a good experience while working with them. I have tried working on different floors and it all comes down to one thing. The workload is heavy. You are sweating at the start of your shift, I tried having 14 residents on my assignment. Half of it are all with lift. On top of that, you have to do showers in the evening and help serving and feeding in the dining room. What's worst is the lack of team work, they pass most of the workload to the casuals. I have been running back and forth , sweating and tired getting my 14 residents go to bed and yet non of my co-workers even ask or offered help while they are all there just sitting down chatting. I am not surprised why newly hired casuals don't show up anymore after orientation after seeing the truth about the workplace.

On the positive side, the pay was great and it was unionized. Secondly, their are lots of shifts to be offered. Staffing calls almost everyday to offer you shifts.
Points positifs
Great Salary, Lots of shifts offered
Points négatifs
Poor team leadership, heavy workload

A private facility is better then this place.
Care aide (Ancien employé) –  Burnaby, BC27 février 2019
I have worked in many places and I must say this is the worse. It is not the staffs fault for being bullies and wanting to dump their work load on you. The facility is hard on 2 person lifts, and it must be 2 person. But if your new the staff go on their breaks leave you with the resident on the lift and you must go around asking people. When you finally find someone they say their on their way for break. All this are signs of short staff. As soon as you start your shift at 2:30 your running! The entire shift until just before the shift ends. Mind you I was not in a heavy group. Nobody helps. The staff complain complain and complain to management and they don’t listen and don’t care too... All this was during my first week there. After so many complaints all I heard was you guys must work as a team. The typical safe card to blame staff for not being united when clearly the ratio is horrible..... gossip is the #1 thing here. If you have experience in the field you willl be tested here. If you have no experience and it’s your first job you will be chewed up and spat out. A lot of my orientation co workers didn’t show up again. Only those that it was their first job stayed. The need to work and the training and treatment they got from the staff here at George Derby will make this new staff sour and mean just the way they were treeted. Hopefully something changes cause at the end of the day it is the residents that pay the price...

Worst job experience I have had in 30 years
Manager (Ancien employé) –  Burnaby, BC2 novembre 2018
I was initially very excited by the prospect of a new board who were determined to effect change at the Centre after several years of poor leadership and workplace practices.
Execution of removal of the leadership team, which was comprised of an ED who brought in contracted managers, did little to remedy the ongoing challenges with leadership and licensing issues.
Very toxic work environment where bullying and harassment went on unabated, particularly leadership, despite my attempt to turn it around.
Concerned for the future of the Centre, its residents, its employees, and its dedicated volunteers.
Points positifs
Dedicated, long time internal team of employees
Points négatifs
Complete lack of communication and transparency. Poor leadership and culture.

Should be your LAST choice
RN (Ancien employé) –  Burnaby, BC25 septembre 2018
Serious political issues within this company. If you like stress, tension and drama this is the job for you. The people on top here are not competent nor aware of the scope of issues here. No job security and no career advancement. This is where RNs go to die. You will hate working here. The reviews posted are entirely fake and likely management did it. Total losers run this place.

Productive workplace
RCA (Employé actuel) –  Burnaby, BC8 avril 2016
Regardless of any Pros and Cons which is in any business or facility.
I'm thankful for having a job and income that I support my family with, and mainly enjoying the kind of job that I hold gives me a great peace at the end of the day that I made many people smile today.
