Look elsewhere. Not worth the headache!
Health Care Aide (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 31 January 2017
I've been with this company for 3 years, I use to love the company but am now looking for work elsewhere. They use to pay per km, but now only give a flat rate travel expense of $150 every pay day. That would be great if I weren't driving over 100 kms per day between in town and out of town clients. It does not even come close to covering the fuel I use for work and there is nothing left over for regular maintenance such as oil changes, tires, starter.. etc. A new vehicle goes to complete junk in a couple of years with this company because there isn't enough compensation. When trying to speak with management about this issue, it's just brushed off and you're told if it doesn't work for you then find something else! Scheduling has no sense of travel time between clients and will often overlap client times. No raises. No paid sick days. No thank-you's. Lots of unhappy staff and high turnover! Also forever changing schedules.. if you're not overworked, you're underworked! There use to be alot of praise for this company and now I never hear a good thing about it.. even from clients!
Inconsistent schedule, high miles without enough compensation
