Personal Care Assistant in Moncton, NB
Stressful and demanding workplace
Nice and friendly coworkers but it is quite a demanding and stressful job with a very tight schedule, no work life balance. Decent pay check, no room for advancement.

Good, hard work but management isn't the greatest
I was so happy to finally find a job I liked after so much uncertainty this year. The work itself was good, very fast paced and I enjoyed being super busy and active all day, even though it put a lot of strain on my body. I really liked talking to the residents, they were all so nice to me. Nice, helpful coworkers.However, their attendance policy is the strictest I've ever seen and they don't give any warnings. Don't have the misfortune of catching the flu your kid brings home from daycare or they'll terminate you for missing the number of days THEY tell you to take off since you have a contagious virus (especially important working in a care home setting because residents are at risk). Even if you haven't had any other issues and have been working hard, they'll jump right to termination without talking to you about it one single time.They really should hire some casual staff so that scheduled staff being sick doesn't mess up the whole department... Then maybe they could treat their staff with compassion when they're not feeling well instead of taking away a family's income because a human being caught a virus during flu season.
Many health and safety issues brought to attention of management repeatedly but nothing was done to correct the problems! It is a for profit business.
This senior home is only interested in making money off of vulnerable old people. They have NO casual staff so the workload is hugely stressful if you sincerely care about the residents' care.
The hours, pay, benefits, and management are terrible!!!

Moncton Residence is a place i will always remember for my work time there was so great.
Working at Moncton Residence provided me with an opportunity to put in practice most of my knowledge and my desires which have always been to help or assist persons who need support the most in their daily living and lives. I was also able to interact and work successfully with individuals with different cultures and habits.
