Avis d'employé sur The Wellington Long Term Care & Retirement Home
Fast paced but yet enjoyable Long Term setting
A typical day at work for me was meeting the residents daily needs and using lifts for transfering residents into there wheelchairs, beds, and bath chairs. I have learned new skills such as which lifts to use for which residents to safely transfer residents and plenty more. I would personally say from experience working at The Wellington...the management was excellent. The DOC is very understanding, easy to speak to and reason with and she genuinely cares for the residents as well as the staff. The co-workers at The Wellington are very helpful and everyone is great to work with. I found that the hardest part of the job is meeting the expectations on time even though it is doable and picking up the routine. Once you learn the routine as well as the expectations...the job runs very smoothly. The most enjoyable part of the job that i had experienced personally is giving the residents the quality of life that i feel they deserve. I have to say overall...it's a great learning experience and very enjoyable as well.

working with impatient staff
Management has zero communication with staff The psws always seem the look down on housekeeping And all have there owe cliques In the spring/summer/fall it is extremely hot, and there is no water provided (besides tap water from 30 year old taps) Also don’t being anything of value, the housekeeps will steal
No communication, stealing, gossip and cliques
Check the maintenance book for work for the day. Learn nothing. Management not friendly at all. She never talked to me till she needs something on maintenance and my supervisor is off. Never introduced herself, won’t acknowledge you when you passed each other in the hallway. The hardest part of the job was trying to satisfy the manager. She has her favourites, it’s either your in or out. Most enjoyable was when they want to buy new appliances and then I’ll repair it, but that’s not good enough for her.
Lovely place with beautiful people, really helpful workers and nurses aswell as staff. A very safe and clean environment. An amazing supervisor that is always willing to help in any circumstances. Fun events that you can part take in to help the residents
