A good place to live, work, learn and grow as a professional and a community member

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Excellent leadership culture exists here. However, it is a highly unionized clinical environment. There is a work-life-family balance. Job security is assured, salary package isn't bad but could be better especially for managers since they are 'Out of Scope' and no union to fight for them in terms of benefits. Job culture is great as it remains zero tolerance to workplace bully and the like.

Good job security and lots of benefits

Job security & benefits very good, promotes team work. You benefit a lot on the in-house training. Readily available information on safety, and patient care.

Stressful

Stressful place to work. I found that it can be a lot like a high school with cliques and gossip, lots of linear oppression. I didn't have the backbone for it, really good learning experience though. Long hours, but good wages.

Great team environment, large learning curve, fun and interactive

I learned payroll management, nursing and health care aide schedules and how to manage those in a team. Nursing team and Health Care Aides were a fabulous group of people, which made it easy to come into work each day. Hardest part of the job was getting to know clients, and having to deal with the emotional side when those may pass or get hurt,

Good benefits

The position was a good opportunity. I liked the co-workers I shared an office with. Very team oriented and always helping each other. The benefits were the best. My brother in law was in a severe accident and AHS was very supportive with time off and sick leave.

Pros

co workers and benefits

Cons

no flexible hours and basement office

Not my dream career position, would rather be working directly with clients. I have grown as a person since I started there and enhanced and utilized my skills. I really enjoying working with the people who are in the same office as I am.

Very toxic place to work

The management in the dept. where I worked were horrible, rude & spiteful people. Not allowed to speak your own mind & if you did you were hauled into the office & given a talking to! I do NOT recommend working for this company ever! They kill your spirit & wear you down. Almost suffered a nervous breakdown working there:(

Pros

Great benefits & wages

Cons

Horrible management!

okay place to work that department would like another department

I like job because it was very physical and had good benefits and the time line. Monday to Friday 6-2 good hour to work worked with my life. Not the best environment to work in no air condition in the summer and working with fecal matter.

Corporate Safety Advisor

Growing health and safety management system Supportive management Collaborative work with co-workers I learned and increased my facilitation skills in training opportunities. The hardest part of my job was finding ways to communicate with workers in a geographically diverse organization of 100,000 employees where English was a second language, technology was not consistent and there was involvement of unions and the public image.

Pros

Work/Life balance

Cons

Decision making by management was an extensive process

Busy, fun, lots of learning moments

I enjoy my job, i love working with the clients and group of home care people i work with. The reason for needing out and a different position is that a .4 shift is far from enough hours, so its time to venture out.

Pros

the clients

Cons

not enough hours to live on
