Job Work/Life Balance
Salary/Benefits and Management are very bad
Massage Therapist (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 January 2018
Salary/Benefits are very bad since is heavy dependent on clients (if you don't see 20 clients per week you don't get any benefits). Management is not very helpful and they do not go above and beyond for their employees. It always seems that the manager has to go on a wild goose chase in order to get an answer with no results. if it was not for my colleagues I would have left this company already, they help me more then management.
People I work with
Salary/Benefits, No clients, or hourly rate for Full-timmer

Lifemark is a great place to work!
Area Manager (Current Employee) – Halifax, NS – 12 January 2018
I have been with the company for over 10 years and have been provided with many new and exciting opportunities. Management is open minded and eager to learn about new idea's from staff, I feel supported by my manager and work with a very caring and passionate group of health care professionals. The working environment can sometimes be challenging and there is a heavy workload. However, there are lots of educational programs offered by Lifemark and an opportunity to learn from my colleges on a daily basis.
Thank you very much for sharing your experience. It is the work you do that gives us confidence in the quality of care provided to our clients!

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 20 December 2017
Great coworkers and client rapport, however, when it comes to Lifemark overall not so great. No proper increase in salaries, advancement, and benefits not great. Don't feel valued working for Lifemark.
Administrator (Current Employee) – Alberta – 8 December 2017
As an employee at Lifemark for many years I have advanced within the company in a variety of roles. I have been provided with many opportunities to learn, work independently and share my opinions and ideas. What has kept me with the company are the continued opportunities to learn, as well as the people I get to work with every day. It is a professional, yet fun, team focused atmosphere to work in.
Staff (Former Employee) – Alberta – 4 December 2017
I have worked in several places and with scores of senior management, but never have I ever met management so rude and condescending as the Clinical Director and senior staff. They treat you with disrespect, will provide little to no coaching, offer contradictory instructions and expect you to have your life revolve around them, overwork you, and be grateful for so. They also have favourites and will judge those who they think don't fit their snob bill. Do not fall for the sweet talk - it is false and a farce. Also, HIGH gossip environment.
Nice co-workers, very lovely physiotherapists and reception staff
Rude, unprofessional, condescending, disorganised to the core
Physiotherapist (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 13 November 2017
I like working for Lifemark because people know the company and trust it when it comes to seeking out therapy. I like the people I work with and the patients I am treating. My boss is great and management supports me seeking out further education to better my practice.
This is a 3rd party company that uses your skills and work ethic for their financial gain.
OTA/PTA (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 9 November 2017
I worked as a LifeMark employee for 5 years, without a raise - even when asked a handful of times. I was continuously told that I was at the "top of the pay scale" and would not even gain the rate of inflation.
Unfortunately this company does not value having someone who is professional, experienced, and skilled as a part of their team - they would rather hire a new graduate and pay them slightly above minimum wage.
I think this position is fine for anyone who is just finishing school and needs experience - but don't plan on sticking around too long.
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 October 2017
I have worked for Lifemark for many, many years. I like & trust my colleagues, management too. I also like that I can voice an opinion or speak my mind and be heard. I have flexibility with my hours/location of work and am given autonomy to do my job - all things which have kept me here for as long as I have been.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Airdrie, AB – 24 October 2017
Management was not very well organized and micromanaged to the extreme, always in trouble for stuff I didn't do. Upper management went against protocols after I raised issues to them. All therapists were unhappy and everyone who was there for a long time were leaving due to management
No work/life balance, disrespectful management, did not value employees
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are continuously focused on incorporating this type of feedback to ensure there are positive relationships between employees and managers. Please know we sincerely appreciate your contributions to the company.

Rehabilitation Assistant (Former Employee) – British Columbia – 14 August 2017
Horrible Pay. To management all employees are replaceable, never expect a decent wage. Management was only in it for the money and had very little connection or care about rehab. However co workers are friendly and clients were very courteous and kind.
OTA/PTA (Former Employee) – Niagara, ON – 26 July 2017
Salary was low, with no possibility of advancement. Management was upsetting, never there to answer calls, or questions or help their staff. When an issue arose, they tried their best to make themselves look good and their staff look bad. Management would take weeks to email/call back with an answer to a question. Never looked over equipment to make sure it was in correct functioning or sanitary. Never took PTAs opinions into consideration. Workplace culture was terrible. Very rude staff where most of them did not understand the role of an OTA/PTA ( and would pick on them constantly ). Management was informed and did nothing to help. The hardest part of the job was knowing that no one was there to stand by you and the other PTAs. The most enjoyable was building a rapport with patients and family.
Physiotherapy Assistant (Former Employee) – Sunridge – 13 July 2017
You know you're walking into a happy job when you hear the staff laughing. LifeMark has been a great place to work. The staff are all knowledgeable and are kept up to date with training and meetings. Patient satisfaction has always been great and I recommend them to people I meet who have a need for physiotherapy.
Didn't work there for as long as I would of liked to
Physiotherapist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 29 June 2017
I really enjoy the team and Lifemark. I am moving provinces and have been fortunate enough to stay within the company. As a new graduate, I have learned so many great skills through their mentor ship series. Lots of opportunities for growth in this company,
Worked for centric health a company in relation to lifemark. Did one flu clinic without any training what so ever, I did an excellent job, staff and patients loved my care. I made a small paper error and I was never called back. Management were nasty, treated me like a number, not a person. They didn't even care to take the time to show the paper work in advance.
Physiotherapy Assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary – 4 May 2017
Lifemark is the worst organization ever, who treat their employees like garbage. Compensation is basically minimum wage and not worth all the hard work and time you put into your job. You will never be able to advance or make more money because they will do everything they can to not give you a raise. Avoid working there at all costs!!
Terrible wages, unappreciated, awful rude management, pretty much everything
Administration (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 April 2017
Lifemark is a very friendly outgoing place to work. fast pace as you have a lot of clients that come in daily, also with that a lot of paper work. You wouldn't ever be bored as there's always something to do. the team there is like family everyone helps everyone an like I said super friendly.
