Case Worker Representative (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 22 June 2017
A typical day at work was to see clients and assess them based on their current needs. After discussing the clients situation, suitable resources were to be matched to their needs as a result of the disaster that had taken place. On average you would see about three or four clients a day, but I worked with the Indigenous Peoples team. This meant seeing up to eight clients a day six days a week. The hardest part of the job was the long hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was making a positive change in the clients post disaster life.

Driver (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 7 January 2017
We were a team on blood clinics. Everyone knew their job. Equipment was unloaded and set up. People went to work and at the end of the day we loaded the equipment back in the Jumbo truck and the blood into the refrigerator truck and drove back to our home depot in Hamilton. There was a piano in the lounge and we had sing alongs.
It was an excellent experience working with social and community commitments

Registered Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 21 November 2016
overall company is still growing. office staff are helpful. wish some one will talk to you when you call. sometimes you do not have the time to call later. we have to use our own cell phones, sometimes your battery gets low and with home care, clients do not mind you using a plug, but you need to have the adapter with you, as long you didn't leave it at home i would like to see company replace clients when they are removed from my schedule. pay goes down, stays that way for some time. rate of pay is low. I work on my own, home services 5 days a week, 1-2 hour visits. clients are living at home with other person or retirement living. you do get attached. I like to look at my work as seeing my own grandparents in their place and treat them as my own. It gives me great pleasure to see and help people in my business, which also allows me to be a true, honest person, my personality is always good to everyone-its a natural feeling: being a R. P.S.W. allows me to be me for over 27 years. also continue with a great reputation which is highly important to me

Community Services Assistant (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 1 November 2016
I was responsible for running the day to day operations of the office,along with some amazing volunteers. As the first point of contact for clients, my job was to process healthcare equipment rentals, first aid registrations,monetary donations. The most difficult part of my job was knowing there was more need in the community than our organization could provide with limited funds, staff, and restrictions due to some policy and procedures. My job as an administrator not only consist of dealing with clients, but supporting managers and staff from other departments. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping others !
