Recreation Therapist in Kingston, ON
fun work, flexible hours
Working as a recreation therapist gives me the freedom of creating my own program for my clients as a contractor for Providence Care. I have flexibility of timing and activities that I plan for people to help enhance their lives and the relationships with the clients are very productive. Pay is excellent, but there are no benefits because I am considered a contractor, not a direct employee. There is also the issue of getting paid - I do get paid well, but there is a long wait for invoices to be paid out by the government of Ontario, (up to 3 months).

Safety problems + toxic culture
Many reviews here say the culture and management is toxic — true.
I was assaulted at work by a patient; occ health then bullied me back to work. My manager told me being assaulted “isn’t personal” and I ended up resigning because the experience was so toxic and workers were still using the same space where I was assaulted, with no changes made.
Manager, Quality Improvement & Projects in Vancouver, BC
Low pay and no appreciation
PHC is a large organization so I'm sure experiences among staff differ greatly. In general, I found PHC to have many unqualified, unskilled people in significant administrative roles.
I liked my work and my colleagues but could not afford to stay for long due to low pay. I stayed another year after the exec director pleaded with me, then when a director role opened up that I was perfectly qualified for, she would not even consider me. Instead she hired a friend of a friend who had little relevant experience. Also, the exec director addressed me as "Hey You". When I gently asked her to call me by my name, she went ballistic.
