Casual concierge (Current Employee) – Dundas, ON – 1 April 2014
Only having worked at the company for approximately one month, it is hard to write a full review. The people (coworkers) at Amica Dundas are very friendly, helpful and professional. The pay rate is higher than expected in today's economy, and after a probational period there are benefits. You are required to provide a criminal record check, an immunization and vaccination screening, and acquire proper fire training and any CPR, First Aid, WHMIS certificates. The company will also pay for your uniforms, training and vaccinations you have not previously received. The residents within the building are nothing short of amazing. Everyone who resides at Amica or visits the facility is extremely nice, polite and helpful in any way possible if you don't know your way around.
Free dinner when working the afternoon shifts, higher than expected income, great work environment. etc.

Server (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 13 March 2017
Working at Amica was an eye opener on how businesses and organizations should be operated. They treat employees like family and promote education and learning new skills to take yourself up the ladder in the company. They treat the clients with care and respect.
RPN (Former Employee) – Belleville, ON – 3 January 2017
Management was very friendly and approachable. But the rate of pay (19$ for rpn) was low for the amount of work you were expected to do. You were often running behind, and between multiple floors and still be expected to finish your med pass. Psw staffs were extremely understaffed only having 2 too the floor. Sometimes no psws would come in at all.
Great pay but hard work is not recognized by management
Dietary Aid (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 6 December 2016
This is a very rewarding job to give back to community. It is a very fast demanding physical job. You learn to manage your time very well. The pay is good and its done by hour. The down sides are there is a lot of gossip about the staff. When going the extra mile is not recognized. There is a lot of favouritism in the work place by management which makes for a culture of distrust.
Wellness & Vitality Assistant (Current Employee) – Dundas, ON – 6 June 2016
Typical day is teaching exercise classes in the morning from 8:30-11:30am, covering the reception desk for an hour during their lunch break, then conducting afternoon activities for the residents. Schedule is always changing and not very flexible to have a life outside of work. You must be flexible to work evenings, weekends and holidays.
Concierge (Former Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 28 March 2016
I began working for Amica one summer as a volunteer straight out of high school. Management were very approachable and friendly. The most enjoyable part of my job was spending time with the residents. All staff worked as a team, from PSW, nurses and concierge we all made sure that residents were our number one priority. When I finally started working full-time as a night shift-concierge, the job became less social and a lot lonelier. Nevertheless, I am very grateful for all the opportunities that I was given throughout the years while working for Amica.

Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) – Markham – 28 July 2015
A typical night at work is coming on the floor to hear the report before starting my rounds to make sure all residents are in bed/their rooms and no immediate concerns are present. I then proceed to work on any paper work left and fill out the daily records. I go on my rounds three times a night and answer any call bells and attend to any emergency that happens during my shift. Around 6am i start to wake up, wash and dress a few residents to help the morning staff.

Corporate Management are cutthroat No teamwork only peacocking Hardest part of the job is being forced to fired amazing people who work hard because the numbers were down even though they were doing everything right.
