Management is bullying and rude to PSWs. Do not work here!
Community Support Worker (Former Employee) – Mississauga – 26 May 2014
The schedulers and management treat workers like garbage. They are bullying and keep bothering you to work hours that are not in your schedule with large gaps between clients Or they work you straight without any breaks - no lunch most days or any breaks and do not give you traveling time between clients so you end up rushing so you can make it to your next client and no time to eat or use the bathroom. They break employment laws.
They have a condescending attitude towards workers and treat you like you are children.
I am completely shocked by this agency. Other agencies are better and so many PSWs I've met quit Red Cross Care Partners to work for other agencies and gave up the benefits just to get the out. They have no respect for workers and they all have this smiling serpent like attitude. You'll find out.
The gas they pay you doesn't amount to much. You pay $400 a month in gas and they reimburse you $160 a month. You are working for 8 hours and get paid for 5 because of the driving around. What is worse is they try to get you to work days and then come back for one or two hours at night!
They schedulers and management have no conscience about booking you without any breaks or and give you no driving time even though they have breaks. These people are inhumane and uncivilized.
No respect, no job security, lack of money for driving.
Registered Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 7 December 2017
Nurses in the community are paid per patient. Too many hands in the pot, poor training for new hires. Significant improvement over the years - important that nurses advocate for themselves. Mgmt focuses morenon KPI’s instead of supporting their front line visiting nurses.
