Just a no body (Current Employee), Alberta – April 23, 2013
Pros: nice building
Cons: just about everything
I'm not sure about those positive reviews. I did not see any respect for the employees from the top down. The individual sites may have some differences, but head office only sees $ which is business I know that but they should have some soul. The economy isnt hurting them, they are hurting themselves by the way they treat their employees and clients. – more... They seem to enjoy having a divided work force.
It was a great place to work before Revera took over. – less
Never work for this place. They expect you to work without compensation. No orientation or support.
Job Work/Life Balance
working with clients in a helpful and enjoyable manner
Office Administrator (Former Employee), Belleville, ON – March 19, 2013
Pros: respect to staff
Cons: expecting more work in a day than possible to achieve
On the way to work mentally organize jobs that need to be done that day. Open office, deal with staff and clients, complete office tasks. Learning product lines, managements expectations, assist staff with trouble shooting. The hardest part of the job was filing and finding the time. The most enjoyable part of the previous job was working with the staff – more... and assisting them to make their job more efficient. I'm looking for a job with little filing, working with clients, possible handling food or giving clients and staff assistance. – less
Learning environment with excellent staff and workplace goals
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Ottawa, ON – December 30, 2012
Pros: working with great people and accomodating my school schedule around my work
I have learned a lot from Revera. They have taught me many organizational skills personal skills that I can use not only in the workplace but in my everyday life as well.
The management staff have been understanding and a great influence on my work environment. They are admirable the way they handle situations and have taught me how to work within – more... the company goals.
Although the job can be stressful at times, like every other job, Revera has taught me how to overcome the bad for the benefit of the good. – less
PERSONAL SUPPORT WORKER (Current Employee), Oshawa, ON – November 7, 2012
Pros: knowing that we make a difference in someone's life
Cons: occasionally not having enough time to give the person
It is so nice to go to work every day and know that we put a smile on someone's face. I have the pleasure of helping mostly elderly people in their daily routines at home and make things a little more easy to manage. It's always nice to take a few moments with them and allow them to talk about whatever they want to get off their minds. Sometimes a fresh – more... face is all they need to make their day a little brighter. In the home care field, we don't get to see the majority of our co-workers, but I would say that they all have pretty much the same compassion and desire to help our clients in their day to day lives. – less
Observational Care Provider (Former Employee), London, ON – October 25, 2012
I am on a night shift OCP. My shift starts at 11pm until 7am in either of the two major hospitals in London, Ontario, the University Hospital and Victoria Hospital. My task was to secure the client that she/he was safe from harm or any other injuries such as fall. Clients that were assigned to me were formed patients. they were sometimes high risk in – more... falls and suicidal tendencies. My co workers were very approachable and friendly since i am a newbie. – less
Fast pace and growing agency providing a valued service to our community.
Client Service Specialist (Co-ordinator) (Current Employee), Kitchener, ON – October 17, 2012
A non stop always changing environment. Day just flies by as there is always new information, problem solving, mentoring and enquiries coming across your desk. I've learned valuable computer and office skills. It's a strong team environment with many people to resource and problem solve. Still allowing for your own ideas and problem solving and decision – more... making. Hardest part of the job may be the demand and need of care in our community and not enough resources community wide to help everyone. Most enjoyable is speaking with the clients and the support staff and nurses and hearing the positive impact we have on the client's and the families and the THANK YOU'S. – less
Productive and tradition workplace with incentive rewards
Applications Specialist (Former Employee), Cambridge, Ontario – August 2, 2012
The most enjoyable part is the complete and successful rollout of Kronos Time and Attendance project in two years time. The hardest part of the job is seeing the team members leaving the company. Those hard working days will always stay in my mind.
Over the course of the last ten years I have seen my capabilities and want to continue working helping others.
Client service Specialist (Former Employee), Thorold, ON – July 18, 2012
Pros: satisfaction for a job well done when a client says thank you
Cons: being asked to do twice your normal workload under a deadline.
I was hired ten years ago by Comcare Health Services during which time I learned new programs, new processes and developed a very good working relationship with my staff and CCAC case managers.I was very dedicated to my work and my attendance was excellent. In January of 2011 Revera Home Health bought the company with promises that our job status and – more... conditions would not change. Since then our job descriptions have changed dramatically and we went with the changes hoping that things would soon improve. Within one year our workload had doubled, and we had seen many coworkers leave (not on their own accord). Recently we were told that our jobs were being terminated as the company had decided that the coordination part of the company would all be done from the GTA area with better client care and service.I personally do not see how taking the personal aspect of this job away helps the clients who have come to know a familiar voice over the years is better. In the last ten years I have developed many skills and have grown personally through challenges and disappointments. There were also many days when a client or case manager thanks you for a job well done and it makes it all worth it in the end. – less
