Stay away from this company!
PTA (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 25 February 2018
HIGH TURNOVER RATE! Company has zero knowledge about the role of an OTA and/or PTA. Owner and management do not respect the assistants, they only care about the therapists. Assistants are being paid minimum wage, workers at Macdonalds make more. Management have no idea how overworked the assistants are, because they just dont care and they are never there.
If you are an immigrant that is DESPERATE for a "job", they will hire you. Companies need to stop doing business with Achieva. It is actually DISGUSTING that companies like this exist.
Assistants make no more than $14/hr (thats ONLY because the minimum wage increased). Thinking about a raise after working with them for a year or more? Thats never going to happen. They would fire you before they give you a raise.
They expect you to act as if you are working with a reputable company with that HORRIBLE pay and they expect you to work hard for minimum.The assistants actually work way harder than the therapists, the therapists rely so much on the assistants. Cheap labour.
Good for the experience
