Registered Practical Nurse (Ancien employé) – Toronto, ON – 18 mars 2019
This place has no work-life balance whatsoever. I am often stuck doing a lot of work at home for which you do not get paid extra for by the way. Coordination always complains and is incompetent at times. Management is often clueless about things and they do not now how to be good managers. There is a lot of gossip in the office and beyond. They hire staff who are also clueless and don't know how to do anything and are rude when you call in. There is definitely a lot of nepotism and people who are clearly not the best for the job being favoured because they are liked by management. They give jobs to whoever they feel like, not necessarily the best person. There are no thank you's and no true appreciation for what you do. Hours are unpredictable and new clients are given out based on favouritism so some have a lot of hours and others - not so much. One week you can have 40 hrs and the next you have only 20. You keep getting calls on your days off - its like no one checks the schedule before calling you. It's like you are always working ParaMed and are always on-call. There is no separation from work and personal life that it can become so overbearing and stressful at times.
You make your own hours.
No separation between work and personal life/no work-life balance.

Assignment Coordinator (Ancien employé) – Ottawa, ON – 18 octobre 2019
People aren't generally happy with Paramed and generally end up leaving within a year. The turnover rate at the Ottawa location is staggering, and for good reason. Your typical day at the office is dealing with a myriad of issues whether it be with clients, families, scheduling and lack of staff. The phone never stops ringing. You have to be available for every call even if you have 500 other things on your plate to do, and then you get maybe a dozen more within a short period of time with the phone calls. You can't possibly do everything you're expected to do with the time you're given. You're entitled to one hour break but many coordinators work through their breaks and some stay and hour or two later completing their tasks for the day. Management often tries to make coordination feel bad about the inability to staff clients, when a complaint comes in through the LHIN, but coordination is often pressured to take on new clients. Made to feel bad for things way beyond your control. Interactions with management feel like interrogations. This company is about about corporate interests over the well being of vulnerable clients. Sometimes you call the same clients night after night to unfill visits and it's really disheartening. Management claims to care about the struggles coordination has, but instead of trying to tackle the systemic problems, does things like pizza parties and gives out flowers instead. Feels insulting. I loved my coworkers there and some supervisors, as well as gained some valuable experience working there. But those are the only positive things I haveplus... to say about working at Paramed.moins
Health Care Aide (Employé actuel) – Winnipeg, MB – 15 octobre 2019
It's got the best of both worlds, you can work as much as you like. Though could improve on some things. There are lots of hours for workers that are skilled and know there jobs. They could improve on better training for new hires, and not overlapping schedules as much as they do. Quality is what counts. They have a tendency to overwork people for more then 8 hours a day.
