They do not stand behind the staff and too many lies.
Registered Practical Nurse (Shift) (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 16 April 2014
loved my job with Bayshore for 10 yrs, then years11+ were lies, intro to computers which don't work, then threats by managers, no information or mis information. Work went to PSWs, then shift nursing work became almost non-existant. Most of the office staff are terrific and helpful and maybe some managers can't stand the stress, shouldn't be managers! There are TOO MANY managers. I left there thinking computers were lost to me...until my next job and then with a decent programme installed all flowed well and my confidence returned. Co-workers for the most part are good but don't get to see them except at meeting or if we have a wrap around client. Usually clients have only one shift per day.
can choose where &when to work, visiting nurses helpful, can travel as much or as little as you want.
Manager does not back up staff, manipulates families, lying, mtgs geared to visiting nurses not shift, shift not given car kits, no paid mileage
Able to utilize diverse skills and access resources beneficial to clients
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Espanola, ON and area – 16 January 2017
Schedule varied day to day. Time management mandatory to accommodate schedule. Courses and in-services required to attain best practice. Developed skills in areas of time management, in-home dialysis, palliation and wound care to name some. Due to geographical issues, management was not always able to assist RNs and RPNs as it affected adequate communications. Co-workers formed a cohesive and supportive team, which allowed a high level of care to the clients with continuity of care. The most difficult part of the job was the travelling. Usually 200-400kms per day with inadequate compensation for fuel and maintenance of own vehicle. Experienced much joy in interacting with clients, providing care and accessing resources to encourage positive therapeutic relationships and aid in clients' recovery.
Ability to utilize broad base of knowledge and diverse nursing skills
Client Service Coordinator (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 17 November 2016
Bayshore is an absolutely fantastic stepping stone company if youre looking to get a job in the government health care system as a scheduler. Unfortunately, the company relies heavily on last-minute scheduling practices and this creates a huge deficit on their customer service ranks. As well, the care workers being scheduled are heavily relied on seniority, and certain areas in the lower mainland just don't call for the workers that the company is hiring; leaving them to pick up whatever scraps they can grab. If you're looking for a company to get you into the health-care industry, you've found the right place. However, do not look into staying here long term.
Solid management, lots of hours in the office, energetic environment, wonderful learning experience
Salary is stagnant, care-workers treated unfair, no growing room within the company
Health Care Aide (Current Employee) – White Rock, BC – 4 January 2017
The Management is always very rude, the hours are horrible, no benefits and the wage is low. They continue to hire new staff when there is no hours for the current workers. The company only allows workers to refuse work if their hours is under 1.5 hours. There has been times where a had to work an hour at 9am and come back to work a half an hour at 1pm and even after calling in they made no effort to try and get rid of the visits or to fill in the HUGE time gap.
PSW (Current Employee) – Nepean, ON – 4 February 2017
Bayshore is good agency and nice place to work. They are giving me client that suites my profession/career. Bayshore gives me a morning shift which i like and throught that i've learned alot of things with regards to caring the patient. The management staff are great approachable and kind. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the patient smile.
Personal Support Worker (PSW) (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 9 October 2016
I learned all about different sorts of culture and religions. My Co-Workers were awesome and easy to work with when it came to working as a team. The hardest part about my job was the transferring of clients from like wheelchair to bed or from the toilet to the wheelchair. The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to provide the proper companionship to my clients and being able to make their day.
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) – Lake Country, BC – 11 January 2017
Rave about being a top employer in Canada, not sure how. I was completely taken advantage of. Poor management, no respect for employees, really could care less if you quit or not. Schedule changes all the time to accommodate new employees. Lack of communication, coordinators are terrible. Changing things last minute and blaming employee for not checking schedule. If a client complains they say due to staff - changes had to be made. Well if the staff was happy, this problem wouldn't be an issue and they would stay. I would never recommend this company, ever. Not taking clients complaints seriously, seems to always be blame
Registered Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Sarnia, ON – 1 August 2016
Busy, lots of hours, good benefits (even for part time), great co-workers and clients. Management only cares about themselves, will bully to get their way...changes the policies/rules on "elect to work", expects staff to sit around and be available for work all the time with no compensation for being on call. No seniority in the company (new staff may be offered more hours and better positions to keep them happy). Management does not listen to requests of nurses. Time off requests are denied majority of time and/or given a hard time.
Client Service Coordinator (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 30 January 2017
I loved working for Bayshore clients and field staff were pleasant to work with. I would still be there if it wasn't for the area director and manager of the branch at the time of my employment. I left as it was very stressful environment to work in with AD and MNG. They are no longer emplyed with Bayshore. If I had an opportunity to return I would love to work with Bayshore again.
Meeting new people and assisting them with everyday needs
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) – Brantford, ON – 29 October 2016
checking your work schedule assisting clients with daily activities either in a community setting or retirement setting i learn something new everyday about new clients or regular clients management isn't at the best at the moment it used to be better my co workers are great very friendly and talkative also supportive the hardest part of the job is when a client no longer needs support or moves into a facility where they can receive additional support that cannot be provided where they are meeting and interacting with new people on a daily basis
PSW - Clinical Practicum (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 5 February 2017
I found the company lacking at the management level - far too unorganized in scheduling clients without proper consideration with PSW schedules. Often found it difficult as not enough travelling time was allotted between clients - that was the hardest part of the job. I learned a little kindness goes a long way in working with people in need. That was the most enjoyable part of the job.
Health Care Aide (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 14 March 2017
they gave more shifts that are convenient for the health care aides, i learned so many skills and knowledge through trainings they have, the management are lenient and approachable. the hardest part of the job was travelling in winter times but the most enjoyable part was being a part of the health care team and able to render professional home care to the clients who needs most.
Registered Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Sarnia, ON – 15 March 2017
I love working with people and I love being busy and fast paced all the while educating and providing the best care possible. Bayshore does offer a variety of nursing skills to be learned. Although if there is no work I don't work with makes me uneasy .
my preview is that this company is more about the business than the compassion and care of our clients. I have been doing my job for over 30 yrs and I
Health Care Aide (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 July 2016
My day starts with evening meals and medication until 6:30,when it is time to do tuck ins.In that there are safty checks, tuck in are asst, undressing wash ups oral care,and HS medications if required,I learn each day as clients change for the better or worst,that each are so very different.Management well there could be some improvment in my eyes seems to be to many and not all seems to know what the other is doing.For the most part I really dont see or work with my coworkers and when we do its nice to see and work with them.The hardest part of my job is when one of our clients pass away. Since we grow close over time its some times hard to let go. My clients and residents have always been the joy of my job, watching them recover from illnesses or watching wounds heal watching them light up when they see us walk in the door these thing are the best part of the job.
Good place to work if you don't want to be appreciated
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 24 August 2016
I worked a number of years for this company and the only thing I got was used. Skills and talents are taken advantage of, favours and going above and beyond mean nothing to them in the end. It's all about the bottom line and the money they can make. Co-workers were great, management a joke.
Management, lack of appreciation, lack of support and accountability, clear divide between employees and management
