Hit and miss
Manager (Former Employee) –  Mississauga5 March 2017
Revera is very hit and miss at their support office. There are great people and some wonderful managers but too much inconsistency and preferential treatment in work/life balance and job security. Very high turnover and lack of commitment to strategy means a lot of knee jerk reactions and long lapses in direction. Very poor communication between departments means a big disconnect between senior management and the front line worker. No one is being heard.
Pros
Social committee activities
Cons
Communication, make-work projects, lack of vision

Communications Intern (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON21 March 2017
In August of 2016, I interned at Revera Inc. with their communications team. The internship was designed to allow interns to explore different divisions (external PR, internal communications, Innovations division etc.) We were responsible for small jobs (putting together statements for the company's internal website, creating excel spreadsheets on Revera's homes, PowerPoint presentations) and were given the opportunity to sit in on communication team meetings. It was an amazing opportunity in an environment that fostered and encouraged growth and personal incentive in its employees

Brutal management, understaffed, lovely residents
Dietary Aide/Cook (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK13 March 2017
residents are terrific like they usually are, and it's a pleasure to be in their home, but the management is not worth it. they do not care for any staff other than management themselves and they don't care if you quit they don't value anyone, everyone is replaceable. concerns are not heard or they are dismissed or else swept under the rug. the amount of work you have to do is not equivalent to the amount of time you have. you can be perfect in every way but still would never be treated the way an employee should be treated.
Pros
Food, great coworkers
Cons
Missed breaks, low pay, hard on the body

lots of drama and cut throat
Nurse (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON28 January 2017
The team is always devided by department. Never enough staff to cover shifts. Corporate always cutting hours and not giving the tools we need to do the work. Residents are left alone for long times if we are busy with another resident and we can not spend the time needed to take care of the resident properly.

me and my coworkers are looking for other work.
Pros
free sandwich and soup for lunch
Cons
everything else

Nurse (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON17 March 2017
you dont get a meal break just go straight to 8 hours without break, otherwise the tasks cannot be done within your shift.

pay rate is too low.
Pros
8 hour unit shift, no travel
Cons
low pay, heavy workload, too much"dirty" work

Do not work there
assistant (Former Employee) –  Ottawa East, ON21 December 2016
It's a place for lazy people if you work you actually get in trabule. Seen as a suck up to the boss yet you just doing your job. Poor mangement, staff are burned out , a fried to say something because they will get fired, and if you do stand up for what you belive in you taken to the office. Lazy people have time to report people and gets away with it instead you are left with lots of stress.
Pros
nothing
Cons
never will work there agian

Not the greatest place to work
Technical Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON22 March 2017
If you are starting out in health/elderly care this place is ok to get experience. Not the best pay unless you work higher up in executive offices. Most of the execs are overpaid and treat the company as if it's their own to do with.

Bizarre experience, very odd patchwork of not real management
reg staff (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON18 September 2016
very strange place, way too much paper work and way too little resident care, management was a revolving door of grossly disgusting humans who think they are super stars yet do not have a clue, one obese manger walked around swearing all the time but would judge her "staff" like she was the best role model, all staff hated it there but stayed for the money knowing management would rotate in less than a year, or die of obesity, avoid this place,run
Pros
none
Cons
too mant to mention

Maintenance, Housekeeping and Kitchen (Current Employee) –  Medicine Hat, AB9 September 2016
It was a good place to work as casual in maintenance,but,when the two Co-workers came back to work(that I was replacing),I was asked to work in the Maintenance Department, Kitchen,Laundry,and the
Housekeeping Departments. that was Mandatory. I was not found of that idea. I have tried working in the Maintenance,Kitchen, and Housekeeping Departments.
Pros
Free Lunches
Cons
No communication between management to employees.

Wonderful Residents, Terrible Management
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB9 September 2016
The residents are amazing to work with, but the management team is terrible. They are unfair, and expect you to know the job the minute you start. There is an insane amount of gossip among the management team. They give you no room to grow and if you have your own voice they shut you down as soon as they can.
Pros
Great Residents
Cons
Terrible Management

Nice place, great coworkers but needs improvement on mental and physical health
PSW (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON13 August 2016
Coworkers where amazing to work with as a team they go above and beyond with making sure the residents are safe, happy and cared for. Like most PSW positions in LTC the biggest complaint is being understaffed. One of the biggest issues is that management needs to recognize mental health strain PSW get, emotional and physical health of a PSW is vital, if a PSW has caregiver burnout it's not good for the residents or the PSW. Staffing issues could easily be solved if management is willing to listen to the PSW. If the DOC isn't willing to listen and has an attitude of "if you want the job it's this way or the highway type of attitude" no one wins
Pros
Coworkers do work as a team
Cons
Not recognizing someone going above and beyond.
