Worst job I've ever had. Abysmal management. Only concern is $$$
Care manager (Ancien employé) – Vancouver, BC – 20 décembre 2016
Two faced management that will treat you well one minute if you wish to be treated like a work horse with no overtime and no proper training, or flat out fire you without cause if you stick up for yourself.
Work environment and company as a whole cares almost entirely about appearance - staff are poorly trained, unprofessional and miserable (and miserable to new recruits - belittling them as well as the residents). Company management is non existent. If they have an issue with you or your work, you'll never know it until they get rid of you because they don't take the time to communicate.
Company's entire drive is $$ who see residents not as patients but cash cows and staff as work horses. You can tell this immediately as they reward staff with prizes for having "x" many move ins, etc. Focus is not on residents well being but how much cash they can make the company.
In terms of quality of care, it is poorer than a public facility, with one nurse for over 100+ residents and care staff that do not respect residents and disconnected management that does not respect staff - for 4K-10k a month--- you will do better to place your loved ones anywhere else. Do not work for these people if you have any self respect.

Always running short and management does nothing to help. Overworked and underpaid, I would not recommend working here. If you do, be prepared to be miserable. Management completely lies to families about the care their loved one will receive. Working understaffed makes it impossible to answer a call bell within 5-10 minutes, they could end up waiting 30 minutes. It's terrible and no matter how often you try to explain to management how things can't continue this way nothing is ever done about it. On top of all the stress you get paid barely above minimum wage, it just isn't worth it.
Nurse (Ancien employé) – Markham, ON – 27 juin 2019
This has been the worst experience as a new nurse, they only give you 3-5 shifts at orientation and expect you to be as good as the nurses that worked their for years. Meditechs are a joke (psw's that can give medications LOL) think they know it all and are going to complain about you no matter how much effort you put into your work. VERY TOXIC COWORKERS, run while you can.
