OFFICE COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 31 January 2018
I loved my job with the Victorian Order of Nurses, we worked very hard and I was extremely passionate in my Office Coordinator role. It was with a heavy heart that we were told they could not afford to run any of the Western Canadian sites and all were shut down. We were given 2 weeks notice with no severance pay.
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) – Kingston, ON – 15 November 2017
Overall I would have to say that the management and administrative support are good. The hours can be a little unusual but if you're used to split shifts then you'll like it and the best part of it is the clientele.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 4 August 2017
I enjoyed building up my clientele and working with people. Although the work was physically demanding the hours were great and I loved the autonomy. Professional needs were always met and there was a lot of verbal praise for a job well done which went a long way in boosting morale.
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) – North Bay, ON – 5 July 2017
VON North Bay scheduling was great at working around ones schedule, however, hours are not always guaranteed. Hours are flexible and for the majority of staff, one ends their day around 2pm. The pay grade is not very high compared to other agencies, but it adds up in mileage. PSW's with VON often have second jobs.
Personal Care Worker (Former Employee) – new minas ns – 9 May 2017
To many hands in the cookie jar. No life balance with this job. Health issues and are not sympathized with. Home life with Children isnt taken into account when you have problem children and to many drs notes required for cold and flu symptoms. Even when Drs put a letter out saying they are not giving notes. for cold and flu issues.
RN, Community Health Nurse (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 July 2016
Get ready to be overworked with inconsiderate management that only think about getting the work done without consideration to the effort nurses make for patient care as well as the poor quality of care that may be provided for the patient due to nurses horrible work load
Human Resources Administrator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 May 2016
overall this was the easiest job ever, a lot of data entry duties, very repetitive but it is so easy that you don't mind. Lunch breaks were long and typically the admin team would go out for lunch every friday. Also, very great pay, considering that you're not doing loads of work. HR admin support started at $18/hr to $20+/hr (agency hires make $13 for this position so try to apply directly)
Personal Care Attendant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 12 April 2016
I loved seeing seniors faces when I arrived every morning. every day was a happy day. The hardest part of my day would be having to send a client to the hospital. management was always happy and easy to report to
District Manager (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 20 January 2016
Lack of appropriate financial and senior management support made it difficult to carry out day to day activities and difficult to carry out managerial duties. Very poor communication from Senior management team. In addition, VON has poor compensation and retention strategies.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Bathurst, NB – 31 December 2015
I worked there for 5 weeks and during that time, I found the work to be extremely varied and interesting. It was exactly the type of work I was looking for as it allowed me to deal with the public while also performing clerical duties.
The time went by very quickly.
It was difficult to do all the work during the office hours; hence, I often had to stay later or come in earlier.
