Stressful Environment
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Gravenhurst, ON15 February 2018
The general staff is very caring and conscientious. This includes all departments. There is a problematic shortness of staff. The staff is working overtime hours to try to make up for this, but they are getting tired. Staff is hired and then they leave because of the conditions. Top management ( Executive Director) is running the place by hurracing the staff and making the staff feel that there jobs are in jeopardy, even though they are needed. This is creating a stressful atmosphere.
Pros
A job

Slave (Former Employee) –  Greater Toronto Area, ON17 December 2017
Stay away and run away. This company is run by lies and harassment on all levels. Employees and mid-managers are overworked and shunned daily. Don't expect anything from this employer.

Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Bradford, ON7 November 2017
Sienna Living took over our facility and it has taken a nose dive. We are always short staffed, since management doesn't prioritise in filling shifts in, even though there's plenty of staff to cover. A typical day is crossing your fingers that you will be fully staffed, odd if you are, rushing around getting cares done, no one wants to work as team, and the nurses are too busy to assist. I have learned that big corporations should not be in charge of running long term care homes, the food has gotten worse and worse over the years, there is no appreciation towards the staff and recreation never assist. They walk around bragging that they make the same amount as the PSW and yet they do not have to get their hands dirty, and try to threaten the staff that they have the power to discipline. No one stays any more that gets hired, and the pay is mediocre. too many ADOCs, and yet nothing changes, at the same time when something goes wrong, they blame one another.
Pros
none
Cons
everything

Extreme bullying and harassment in Environmental Services Department
Aide (Former Employee) –  Glenmore, BC3 November 2017
Managers rarely happy with anyone including their hardworking employees. They do not know what they really want themselves and they set unreasonable expectations they would never be able to reach themselves. Huge turnover and inability to keep new staff due to EXTREME harrassment and bullying by senior PSW'S, registered staff and Management IH and the Ministry of health are invited to investigate and get to the bottom of this mess.
Pros
Nice Director of Care
Cons
Extreme bullying and harassment from secondary managers

Managment with the stick, not the carrot
Employee (Former Employee) –  Ontario2 November 2017
Management rarely comments on a job well done but is quick to provide public criticism at any opportunity. The management team at support office is consumed with a sense of self-importance.

They are cheap and regularly miss salary payout on time. First place that I have ever worked where I have to ask for my rightfully earned pay.
Pros
Non
Cons
Egotistical management. Don't pay what they owe you.

Nurse Manger (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 August 2017
Good company to gain experience, but high turn over rate. Pay is below average in their attempt to save money- not realizing the long term effects of paying a low wage to employees. No where is perfect but the co workers and residents make the journey worth it.

Nursing Department (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON13 July 2017
Absolutely terrible moral. Huge turnover and inability to keep new staff due to harrassment and bullying by senior PSW'S, registered staff and Management. Union Stewards/reps are far from helpful and rarely available, numerous questionable incidences that are overlooked daily. Management sweep is long overdue...
Pros
Handful of amazing PSW'S and support staff, residents.
