This company forgot that we are dealing with people, all about the numbers
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB10 January 2018
Work life balance is not important to Revera. They will ask you to be out of town on Halloween and miss your kids first day of school for conferences.
This company doesn’t train, support or encourage their employees to grow, nor do they acknowledge your accomplishments.
Pros
very rewarding industry
Cons
Demanding senior leaders, zero work life balance

Avoid working for Revera at all costs!!!
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON29 December 2017
Immigrants work in the dining room who have already formed cliques. The servers are either students or 40 plus year olds with little to no high school/college. Every manor is poorly managed/incredibly unorganized. If you're not a member of management you cannot help but feel like an outcast. Revera expects you to complet an obscure amount of duties (after serving 25 plus residents) then leave on your scheduled time which is impossible.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Always chasing after your pay, Hardly any hours, Poorly managed, Paid minimum wage.

rewarding work
Director (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON22 November 2017
Very rewarding working with older adults.
Business has shifted goals a number of time and clarity has been foggy.
They truly do care about their senior residents.

They can be trigger happy with terminating people and hand out very poor severances - people have been blind-sided. Lack of transparency - don't post the salary ranges for each job level.
Pros
location, head office exposure to C-suite, Compassion for Residents
Cons
shifting major priorities - lack of transparency - cheap severances.

Company really doesn't value employees
Dietary Aide/Cook (Current Employee) –  London, ON21 November 2017
Working at a Revera-owned home is a toss of the dice, in all honesty. If you are very lucky, you will find yourself working for one with great managers and staff; this has my experience. The company itself, however, has been slashing jobs and hours country-wide. I cannot in all good conscience recommend working for Revera Inc.
Pros
Friendly front-line staff, great residents, some really great managers at the residence level.
Cons
No real job security, regardless of how hard you work.

not good
Worker (Former Employee) –  Chatham-Kent, ON21 November 2017
management always says wirk as a team....but when you are shirt staffed they sit back and watch you run....team work eh?? Not setting a good example....and when you go to them with an issue Not one Thing changes. The Chatham retirement resort is falling apart....repairs are needed....lack of staff so the residents suffer. SHIFTS ARE 4 HOURS......not worth driving to or getting a sitter for that. Staff try to bully...management does not care. Just not worth it ...
Pros
nothing
Cons
4 hour shifts...

Terrible place to work.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB19 November 2017
I worked there for just over 2 months, and it was an awful place to work.
1. The staff were very rude. Towards other staff and also towards the residents.
2. The residents personal bathrooms were full of mold, especially the bath chairs, due to lack of proper housekeeping.
3. In the 2 months I was there, there were 3 outbreaks of bedbugs. Which did not get dealt with properly whatsoever.
4. The management was not very professional at all.
Pros
The seniors
Cons
Everything

Sad truth
Manager (Current Employee) –  Ontario4 November 2017
All I see is cuts to food to staff to time and if you don't like it here is the door.... This is the "model" and this is the "vision". I would like to think that my many years of experience matter but the truth is no one wants to hear and I find the culture very disheartening. The sad truth.
Pros
Not sure
Cons
No one cares

Fun co-workers and easy to get along with everyone
Cook (Current Employee) –  Stittsville, ON6 October 2017
This site is a very good place for student or even people ready to retire kinda of job. Most stuff is made from scratch and a diet resctition is required because you work for the elderly and they like everything hot,fresh and soft to eat. The co-workers are very friendly and easy to get along with.

Health Care Aide (Former Employee) –  Brandon, MB15 September 2017
This is a really fast Past to Work as a H.C.A.. Get them up bathed and dressed and bed changed and made with in 15 minutes flat, or else get run down by other workers, if you are new your labeled as stupid and slow.
There was a thousand rules to follow on the day shift but on the evening shift the main rules get ignored because the main boss's are gone. For Example the residents are immediately put in there pajamas than dinner and bed time for them at around 4:30 pm.
Pajama's are suppose to be only worn right before bedtime.
Better time to work is evening or night shift.
They never hire enough day workers.
Pros
free in-house training, lots of overtime, great pay
Cons
smells

The job is great if you love working with older adults, which I do. There is room for improvements in the company and in the structure for how they run things, but overall it was a good experience.
