Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) – Brantford, ON – 24 April 2017
I do my call ahead to my clients. I only work in the evenings and they are not high maintenance compared to working days. Everyone is very enjoyable and pleasant. The hardest part sometimes is figuring out the client likes and dislikes for supper!

They tell clients personal info about you don't pay enough for the work you do don't get hurt or sick they will let you go supervisors you can't count on if coordinator calls to ask if you can do more hours they give u the guilt trip if you say no
Homemaker (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 March 2017
ParaMed claims to be operating for a long time as a health care provider and yet they don't know the policy on whether employees are paid for jury duty. They don't care about their employees. All they care is profit. They should get their license for operating suspended because they treat employees like trash. Management are not supportive to employees.
Worker (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 March 2017
This organization has a poor management practices and office culture. They have no respect for the HCA's or LPN's. They talk about people behind their backs constantly.Very toxic non professional work environment. This review is for the Edmonton Branch only.
Clerical coordinator (Current Employee) – Niagara, ON – 17 February 2017
Worst job I ever had. Management unprofessional and disengaged with the employees. Absenteeism isn't managed, office staff constantly calls in sick, resulting in snowball effect down the chain. Favoritism runs rampant as well as bullying amongst office staff. HR is non existent. Disgusting work environment.
REGISTERED NURSE (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 17 January 2017
- self-scheduling of patients for daily visits - management very approachable and welcoming - ability to guide your own practice as long as policies and procedures are being met - on-call shifts 16:30-08:00 and then a full day of work the next day - more on-call shifts than I anticipated and desired to work (very restricted in what you can do while you're on-call since you have to be available to see patients if you can't troubleshoot over the phone)
self-scheduling of daily patients
too many on-call shifts and too long of on-call shifts

REGISTERED PRACTICAL NURSE (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 3 January 2017
ParaMed is a great company to start your health care career with. They offer a good benefits package, good hours and the opportunity to advance with the company and earn more based on your skill level and experience. Management is very supportive and approachable, I have nothing negative to say about any employee I have encountered in my two years with the company. It's always been a positive experience for me.
Work phone provided, great atmosphere, highly approachable management
Restricted/Limited client needs, can feel repetitive
