I know the job of being in community care is a fascinating one.
If you are adaptable and knowledgeable and like working on your own, there is no other job like it. The rewards are huge.
Bayshore has ruined it. The shear size of it and its terrible scheduling techniques have made working in the community care sector a life wasting job. You cannot make enough money with Bayshore as they are so focused on their bottom line that you are just a tool to be used and your lifes circumstances are not taken into consideration. If you get into an accident while on work and many care aides do as we are expected to drive every day in all kinds of conditions and even when we ourselves are feeling under the weather as anyone can tell you when they have tried to get a sick day off and its not allowed or you are pressured into taking it, the care aides who are layed up for months will tell you not only did they not get any real help in filling out the forms for WCB, but Im sure they were not even contacted by anyone in the big offices of Bayshore as to their health.
Burnaby Bayshore has been a horrible disorganized place to work for. The office is hard on its care aides. We don't get enough hours of paid work, and the schedule is never up more than a day or two in advance.
Calling any one in charge is at best a 50-50 chance.
Even though we are expected to work long days and weekends the office is strictly mon to fri 9- 5
They call themselves a top run company....they should get a vote on that.
when they require so many hours of your day to made available to them, they should fill it up. I wanted an 8 hour day over a 9 hour window and in 4 + years Bayshore has given every excuse in the world as to why it is not done.
I am tired of the control and demands and still not being able to pay my bills.
I will make more money in a coffee shop or retail store than what my college education has given me under Burnaby Bayshores scheduling.
Terribly run and yet no one seems to care. – less

Bayshore home health is rated a top RUN company, not a top employer. It won this award due largely to the fact that the office went from paper to electronic system, etc. From my own experience, it will need to change practically every thing it does in order to even achieve a chance of being called a top employer. Run as it is now....it is a terrible place to work.

But you have no idea how much the frontline workers have to put up with, especially the management had no respect to us
