Definitely do not apply to work at this company.
Registered Nurse, Nurse Associate (Former Employee) – London, ON – 23 February 2017
e.The management team and all divisions are out for themselves and do not back up their nurses. This is a micromanaged company in which the dollars are far more important than customer care or employee health/welfare. Worklife balance is not considered at this workplace and you are stigmatized if you have any disabilities.
Exceptionally non-flexible in their staffing and scheduling, at most times you have to book your time off almost a year in advance and this still does not guarantee you will have your vacation when you wanted.
Because you're out of active hands on nursing, if you work for this company for an extended period is extremely difficult to get work afterward due to being out of practice. And no matter how long you work for the company or the excellent reputation you may have there, they refused to supply you with any type of reference when you leave.
Very cutthroat between staff and management is constantly breathing down your back with little support or encouragement.
There is no union, so if there's an issue it's impossible to resolve, because as previously mentioned, the management are out for themselves and never answer questions presented to them. Often skirting the original question and never getting back with responses.
After 12 years working with this company I have seen it ruin many nurses.
Can possibly go work from home.
Poor management, lack of support for the nursing staff, negative atmosphere, poor wages, poorly treated staff with disabilities
