Attendant in 11 bentley ave ottawa
Stepping stone. Avoid unless you really need stretcher/ pt experience
Worked here for a few months, like most transfer companies, very high turnover rate most people stay 0-4 months. vehicle safety issues, you will at times work 14-18 hour shifts and they will try to bring you in with less then 10 hours iff between shifts. youll come in to work and be told your driving down to niagara area or other extremes etc so pack a lunch. You will at times pay for gas using your own debit card as they only fuel at drummonds no fleet cards. No set hours, on call only if its slow you’ll work 5 hours, if busy lots of hours I once worked 125+ hours in a pay period. Many people quit summer 2019 as they had people down to 10 hours paid a week. Company puts its profits first.. the pay by cheque only. No direct deposit. Management pretends to listen to your concerns but it goes no where.
Your coworkers will be amazing most people stay because your partner makes the job bearable.
This is good as a stepping stone or for experience only.
Transfer Attendant in Kingston, ON
Overall a good job
I worked at priority a little under 3 months, I resigned right before my three months due to another job offer. It was a great experience and I really enjoyed it! I find it great if you want healthcare experience! Management was absolutely amazing and so were the staff. Everyone was super accepting and supportive. All the staff work together as a team!
This is no place for someone that has a drive to succeed
I left this company less than a month after resuming,it is a toxic place to work,staff are not friendly and don’t care for employees welfare not even medical benefits to help with hospitals expenses because we use manual stretcher and carry up to 340pounds.
Medical Transfer Attendant in Ottawa, ON
Good job, inadequate pay and benefits
I enjoyed working here as it is a rewarding line of work and an important one at that. The pay and benefit compensation is comparable to a mcdonald's, only problem is that mcdonald's actually wins that comparison.

Apply at hospital for porter instead
Ministry of health and mto look the other way with patient transfer companies as its done to save money. So its completely unregulated across the province. Your on call so even if it says your scheduled to come in for 6am they call you at 430am etc so no rest hours off stability. You may work 18hr shifts and drive to say southern ontario and back or other extremes. Company only cares for profit. They use gas cards for drummonds only so you have to use your own money to fuel up if your out if town. Your paid by cheque. Good for experience but find somewhere in healthcare with more stability. If you give 2 weeks notice, they will cut all your shifts for those 2 weeks be warned.
