Terrible place for residents and employees
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Stony Plain, ABAugust 11, 2014
Cons: too many to list
The HCA's complained constantly about workload with good reason. Management bully employees, by actually striking employees, calling them names and threatening employees by telling them they would give very poor references if employee left. No management support. Always work short with again no support from management. Inappropriate residents being – more... accepted just to fill beds to make money for society. HR good friends with care managers; no point in contacting them. All about the money. Resident's family members approached me many times conveying their frustration and displeasure of their loved ones. They made it clear they knew it was a problem with management. Family members so upset they were threatening to go to the media. – less

Pros: i was valued by my clients
Cons: hard work and lousy pay
This Job was certainly different for me. I was standing most of the time shredding documents in the back of a 5 ton truck. It was very dusty and some what noisy. There was a lot of lifting which kept me in great shape. The company's client tell consisted of banks, lawyers offices and Government.

Awful management and work load.
Health Care Assistant (Current Employee), Penticton, BCAugust 15, 2013
Management doesn't care about staff or residents safety and health. 1 resident to 10 care aides, no help when needed. Expects 1 person to do a 2 person job but then won't take responsibility when something goes wrong.
I wouldn't recommend working here.

Fun place to work at.
Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee), The Good Samaritan SocietyMay 12, 2014
Pros: great people to work with
Cons: the culture of the organization is now changing and there is a lot of unrest between staff.
The staff at the Good Samaritan Society are a fun bunch of people to work with. They are always positive and have a great outlook to everything they tackle.

Learnt the Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system and all the different aspects of a physicians workload. I found this very interesting.
