Overall the company appears to make initiatives and have all the theories to improve the organization and it’s employees but that always falls flat. Despite countless meeting and false initiatives. Management do not know how to implement their ideas- they are too concerned with office politics and who gets to be the teachers pet. Staff in my department are not adequately trained - they hire staff with the same aggressive attitudes as they have who either have poor communication skills, social skills or common sense and could care less to properly train anyone because the management team instill their employees with the passion to climb the ladder by throwing everyone else off.So long as they can push some buttons and follow orders is all that matters. Gossip seems to be more important than the progression of staff and the company. Threats are often used as initiatives to do more work- even though the staff are over worked because targets can’t be met due to the increasingly high turn over rate and overall poor results from the company. All in all poorly organized work place that will not get anywhere unless the current supervisory staff are stripped and rehired.
Low income, high turn over rate, no opportunities to move up, toxic
Vital Aire has a work good culture but lacks the flexibility to act in micro economic was unable to adapt to local conditions. Unwilling to pay competitive market rates in Northern communities staff change over high in the professional category, due to this factor. Super people to work with and clients were mostly great.
Good culture and possibility of advancement if willing to move
Unable to pay local market rates for salaries
As a driver your typical day is to load the vehicle and deliver/fill oxygen & other gases and medical equipment. Driver have to go same places every week. Its a good place to work. Safety is given a very high priority here. Coworkers and other staff is good & cooprative.
Good wages, good work & life balance.
Heavy lifting, rotational on-call schedule

Typical day at work started with inspecting oxygen tanks, checking for annual dates and condition of tanks. Venting any excess oxygen out of tank. Roughly 2 people on team would inspect 1300 tanks a day. And then loading and unloading oxygen tanks from a racking system when the tanks were filled. Unloading delivery trucks into warehouse, sending material out. This same process continued roughly 15 times every shift. So we were basically running a repetitive system over and over with little to no variability. Plenty of paperwork to fill out as you are under the eye of health Canada, so you must dot every "I" and cross every "T" on your paperwork or there are consequences. You are working in a small team environment with roughly 5 other people. And when one person is on vacation your daily quota is the same as when all 5 people were there. And if someone is on vacation and someone else is sick your daily quota is the same as if all 5 people were there because your providing healthcare products that must be delivered. Your probably lifting 1000's of pounds of material every shift and doing allot of repetitive lifting. So if your physically strong and like repetitive tasks and can handle working with the same people in the same location every day then go for it. Another difficult part of the job was when someone else quits you could/ will be expected to cover for that person and do most of their work for months at a time, until they hire a replacement. Consistent year round work due to medical needs provided good job security. Good luck getting a raise, - plus...
This company is very management heavy and doesn't have a clue about the employees' tasks and responsibilities on a day to day basis. There is no formal training for the position once you get the job, safety is the number one priority but no one trains you on safety. It's sink or swim kind of mentality but don't mess up because you'll be out before you know it. Managers are hired but have no idea how to manage.
There are good ppl working there but no proper work ethic
No proper work ethic
Entreprise mondiale, siège social distant à notre emplacement de travail. Gestion difficile et réponse lente aux demandes, beaucoup d'insatisfactions de la part de la clientèle (patients).
Proximité de l'emploi
Aucune pause, aucune supervision sur place pour prise de décision, délais trop longs pour demandes divers nécessités pour le bon fonctionnement de la clinique.
Local management could not make decisions. Would listen to a previous manager who took step down position. Asked for 2 weeks off to get married from the time I started until 3 weeks prior to the wedding. Never got an answer. Ended up quitting. The company had unresolved staffing issues from 2 years prior to my start. They never did resolve them to my knowledge. Very negative environment. The guys that trained me earned less than what I was hired at, one of them quit also.

Family/personnal life is not respected on a regular basis. Growth opportunity within company is very low Equipment availability and new technology very hard to come to Patient care well maintained
Recognition, respect and equality
Great Employees! Enjoyed working for this company, great benefits package, pretty laid back managers, can be a bit of a crazy place at times but its the nature of the business.
Great Potluck lunches
The word safety is thrown around a lot. However, if you have a full route, and get 5 more patients you still need to complete the route in the same amount of time. Management turns a blind eye to cutting corners, but will throw you under the bus if something goes wrong. There is tremendous pay inequity. I was paid over $5.00 an hour more than a female college who performed the same job.
Vitalaire the company is great. There are a lot of action plans put in place to increase employee engagement and frequent town hall meetings to keep employees up-to-date. The president is friendly. However, the department I worked in was not so great. The hardest part of the job is the amount of work. A lot of the staff members are not trained properly. Office politics is rampant and extremely distracting. Hard work does not equate advancements. It is extremely difficult to move ahead in this company. Overall, I would recommend this company as a whole but not the department I worked in.
No advancements, low-average salary for admin staff
Reasonable pay. Wonderful supportive management. Clear escalation path. Friendly comfortable environment. Lots of support available wherever it's needed. I only left because I had to move away - otherwise I'd have stayed.
Supportive management, Friendly colleagues, Enjoyable work
Heavy work load
Unfortunately not a good review for the Mississauga Ontario head office team. Very Poor management with very little moral values. Very little support from the HR team to provide support for their employees. HR is supportive for the management team and this does not provide proper engagement for employees that need their support
Delivered mostly oxygen tanks to seniors with respiratory problems learned about compressed gas and cryogenic medical gas. Direct manager and coworkers were really great people to work with, dealing with the people at the head office, not so much. They seemed to be incredibly out of touch with the realities and daily ongoings of each branch, and kept expecting employees to squeeze more and more work into an already full-to-the-brim work day. Felt sometimes like you were doing the work of 2+ people. The hardest part of the job was having having to hand deliver and return oxygen tanks to/from people living on the third floor of a walk-up apartment, every week, carting them down a sidewalk covered in snow in the winter. Also delivering to clients in more dangerous areas of the city where I didn't always feel the safest, but unfortunately that's where they had to live and it was my job to make deliveries to them. (Dodging uncapped, hypodermic needles in the snow was definitely not something I was aware of during the hiring process, so be please be aware that there are a range of clients from varying walks of life, living in varying areas of whatever city you'll be working in). The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing you were making a difference in easing the suffering of some very sick people, sometimes children. Also getting to work with and learn about liquid nitrogen and liquid oxygen. Company leases new International trucks every few years, it was nice for once getting to drive a truck that had air conditioning in the summer. Work/life balance is off at - plus...
Newer vehicles, home every night, relatively safety oriented company, helping to ease people's suffering, manager and all employees I worked with directly were really great, supportive people
Very physical work, intense workload, handling 300+ cylinders in a day, dangerous work, sometimes spent more time out of the truck than in it, no bonuses, stat holidays are worked by default or use a vacation day to have it off, unused sick days don't get banked and disappear.
