Senior Coordination Specialist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 June 2014
Training is almost nonexistent, salary is mediocre at best, senior management very reactionary, scattered and unprofessional. Corporate HR needs to take heed about in house practices on how employees are managed.
close to home
employee contributions go unnoticed and unappreciated
Health Care Aide (Former Employee) – Brandon, MB – 15 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.
free in-house training, lots of overtime, great pay
Dietary Aide (Current Employee) – Grimsby, ON – 10 August 2017
I have had the pleasure of working at a Revera retirement home for several years and I have developed a passion in serving the elderly and ensuring they have a pleasant dining experience. This aspect of my job has been great. However, over the years this location has significantly worsensed due to poor management and I am saddened to say that it is at its lowest point right now. I could see this location shutting down if it continues to go in the direction it has been going.
Great teams on the units, busting our backs while head office rakes in massive profits at the cost of residents.
Registered Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Burlington, ON – 8 August 2017
Residents are paying an arm and a leg on top of all of the funding that is provided to individual facilities for nursing (PSW's, nurses, nursing equipment). So why are staff members skipping breaks to provide mediocre care? If you want to be the best in the business then you're going to have to pay for it. CEO's and upper management just pile more paperwork on the registered staff thinking it will solve care issues. You want better care? Have actual nurses and care givers making these decisions, you have no clue what a day as a nurse of a 32 bed unit consists of. You want more complex patient cases so you can receive higher funding dollars from the ministry? Then hire enough nurses to care for all of these complex patients you keep wanting. Profit driven healthcare at its finest. So tired of hearing nothing but family complaints directed at the front line staff because management feeds their imaginations to believe Revera is an all-inclusive resort. Nurses and PSW's being scolded for not allowing family members and residents to abuse them. If you're a nurse, go work in a hospital. The patient ratios are safer than 1:32, and the pay is better.
Great front line team
Greedy Head Office, Unrealistic expectations of front line staff which leads to unhappy families and residents, lower pay than other nursing facilities (hospitals) which have lower patient ratios.
Dining Room Supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 31 July 2017

Best Place to work, Great Staff, Great Pay, Great people
Assistant Director of Sales (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 July 2017
My honest review. This job cannot get any better. The management is so supportive Its rewarding work, if you work hard you will be rewarded The Elders you are around, will give you nothing but support and care. Its like having family that you don't know about. Its a blessing to work for this company and everything they have done for elders and the staff is unforgettable.
Sales Consultant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 July 2017
This is a terrible company to work for. They continue to promote and reward those with terrible business ideas. It's a stomping groind for egotistical VPs, who have no idea what goes on at site-level, to put their terrible ideas into practise. They fire everyone who opposes them (unless it's too expensive because they've been with the company 10+ years). They continue to push prices up while lowering staffing, food quality and resident satisfaction. The promote those who lie on their satisfaction surveys. Money is the most important thing to the company. I would be ashamed to have a loved one living in a Revera property.
Rewarding career working with seniors and families

Supervisor (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 4 May 2017
- National Company, allows for Policy and Protocols to be standard, yet there is still room for individuality - Focus is on residents and services available - Ongoing Education and Training opportunities are manditory and staff are also able to request/access outside training opportunities that are made availble - Staff have opportunity to make suggestions relating to themselves and the services - There is alot of involvement in community awareness - Staff appreciation including events are provided on a regular basis are - Benefit Packages are better than average - Wages could be increased, but as it is a Private company, is not regulated in the same manner as Government funded/regualted
Manager (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 20 April 2017
Expectations are astronomical and pay is far less than a position with much less responsibility in the public system. Expectations to be on call 24/7 with little to no money for staff and budgeting to run a building that should be five star. Non-stop complaints from residents that are paying huge sums of money. Corporate has placed the management in these buildings in a position to fail by providing zero budget. Terrible place to work. Most managers only work to gain the experience and then leave - leading to a revolving door syndrome.
Staff and managers who are working hard to attempt to keep company afloat.
LPN (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 April 2017
