corporation with too many employees and very little loyalty to current employees.
Sales of Medical Equipment and Supplies Vendor (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 9 September 2013
I have 17 years in the medical supplies industry and have many more years to go unfortunately this corporation bit off more companies than they could chew on therefore a lot of good people have been let go recently.

unprofessional managers lacking in people and communication skills.
good place to work, to get experience and helping team and management.
Pharmacy Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 19 April 2017
It was a great experience and learning with very co operative colleagues and supportive management. Did not fine any harsh experience.. Obviously busy environment need to work hard but that is challenge and learning opportunity.
Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Alberta – 11 April 2017
I was attracted(taken in ( by the company speel of providing top notch pharmaceutical care to their clients. I worked hard and did what I thought was best for my clients. This often meant reducing the number of medications they were taking. This was not acceptable to management and I was let go.
Pharmacist (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 March 2017
This is a busy high paced pharmacy that emphasizes following process and being accurate (it's a pharmacy after all)
Management does not tolerate employees that are not encouraging and provide guidance and just fired 2 supervisors. They listen to employees have a HR person right on site. There is job security most employees been there for over 3 years. New business added so lots of new staff as well. Good culture team approach
Benefits are mandatory but comprehensive can fill your prescriptions at the pharmacy you work for total coverage or another pharmacy for 80 percent coverage
Good managers, We are treated well even get Starbucks, birthday cake once a month, great year end staff appreciation dinner
Very busy very high paced, long hours but we get paid!
Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 March 2017
Bad management, weird work environment, too much stress, dirty business,poor policies and procedures, they don't care about patients or employees, all employees feel instability as managers always threaten to fire them, almost every week they fire 1 or 2 in Edmonton.
Employee (Former Employee) – Alberta – 9 March 2017
No staff support, blatant nepotism, it is very clear if you don't suck up to management you will not keep your job. Staff turnover is the highest I've seen anywhere. They do not operate with best practices and get angry and fire people when mistakes are made. The compensation is ridiculous. No overtime, only banked time which you have a very hard time getting them to pay out or getting the time off to use it. The benefits are certainly not the best I've ever seen, you are only covered if you use their pharmacy. And salary is below average for the position.
Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 January 2017
Working at Centric Health offers a lot of positive growth and opportunities for anyone who wants to work in the healthcare industry. The corporate team is a group of hardworking, fun and dedicated individuals who are committed to making a difference in the lives of patients across Canada. Everyday the work is different and rewarding. Like any job, there can be challenges, but thankfully Centric has a great leadership team that really focuses on making sure their employees are heard and problems are addressed and solved. With Centric being a newer company, it offers opportunity to create new roles and find new passions. Overall, I really enjoy working at Centric.
Nurse (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 18 October 2016
People are what make the company a good place to work. I don't know about the other facilities across Canada, but the Vancouver site is filled with hardworking people who do their best every day to take excellent care of their patients. No work place is perfect and there will always be stressors, but everyone here tries to work together like a family.
Nurse (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 10 August 2016
Do not even think of a job here as permanent or a career. Salary good, but no benefits, no Inservices, nothing invested in staff development, very poor moral, no rapport with management, doctors, acillary staff, or even some of the other nursing staff. Not a card even at holiday time, much less a dinner, bonus or even a token gift. Do not expect any more than a quick coffee or quick bite to eat while in front of patient's, if there is time, as there is never a get away break, even to go to the bathroom, unless you can convince some one to relieve you for a moment. You often don't know what time you will be finished at the end of the day, as patients can, and are added without you being aware or asked. Hours, start times change frequently, days are cancelled or added regularly, UGG
Free parking, no plugs, other nurses superb! A huge pro
Case Coordinator (Current Employee) – North York, ON – 13 January 2016
The Job culture was great, however management was not very approachable.The
Most of the people are nice but the turn over is so high!!! Instead of cultivating good employees they let them quit. The people who consistently stay on have emotional issues and are not professional. Too many tears and complaints in the workplace. Worst of all though is that management does not provide the necessary support to help people succeed!!! They let you suffer there until you can't take it anymore and quit! Everyone in every department is stressed and overworked! This place has a major issue with understaffing! If you like a chaotic atmosphere, immature reception staff and having empty promises made to you by management then this is the perfect place for you!

Fun work place with supportive management Team, learned how to work as a team member and time management to finish the duties on time and also learned how to talk with customer and how to behave with co workers
ADMINISTRATION (Current Employee) – ALBERTA – 21 August 2015
I've been an employee for a year, soon to be an ex-employee. The management team back stab each other on a regular basis. Long hours but no overtime, no perks to this company. Management value lazy old employees that find meaningless tasks to fill their day rather than actually working....but they are "so busy". The staff are spread very thin and asked to take on tasks of other employees that CAN'T do their job! There is no support for new employees, they are just thrown into their role with no direction. I have seen some good people come and go, turn around is so high that even our doctors make comments that there are new people every time they visit every month. This company only cares about money and numbers, good employees and clients are the least of their worries. My co-workers are the only good thing, but they are on their way out also.
Productive environment, but low communication between departments.
Client Services Coordinator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 July 2015
Independent work environment which is great. Coworkers are helpful and friendly to work with. Could be more inter-mingling between departments to boost office morale. Lots of changes occurred in the past few years which gave me exposure to different roles.
No stability,company did not respect the contract I signed (ended up with less hours than they said they would give me) . no benefits whatsoever. have to work on holidays, no days off/sick days. considered self-employed yet you don't have power over anything.
