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.
