In the beginning it was good, long hours, then hours were lost to new staff
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON1 October 2016
If they decide they like you, they give you good clients if not they are treating you like dirt and giving you unbearable clients to work with. I was often sent from one side of town to the other. Treated very unfairly
Pros
Good hourly wage
Cons
Few hours per day

Awful place to work
RPN (Former Employee) –  Eerie St.Clair19 August 2016
Terrible management, that creates a toxic work environment. Employees treated like they are expendable. Labour laws ignored, human rights code violations, employees safety and nursing licences put at risk under threat of being fired. Lowest pay of ANY nursing organization in this County. No raises unless you fight for it and even then they are very minimal. HR does nothing to prevent or address bullying when you submit complaints. Senior management turns a blind eye to problems when you attempt to address problems with them. ZERO support in any respect. Nurses being forced to preform skills they are not trained or qualified to preform with zero assistance at all provided as clinical lead is never available and management won't allow you to receive training or assistance from colleagues. Constant calls after hours or on vacations. Vacation or days off approved but then refused last minute. Nurses who are not trained being placed on call and putting clients at risk. The list goes on and on.

This is hands down the worst place I've EVER worked in ANY field.
Pros
None
Cons
