How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Amica Senior Lifestyles? What are the steps along the way?
Training without pay, no way. For PSW, they ask you to take the online training modules. It takes days and days to finish them, then you can start working. However, the hours and days you spend, they don't pay you.
How many shifts is part-time? Is it 4 shifts every two weeks? Does Amica have lines you can apply to, morning, evening, nights? If there are lines, is there a rotation when you work or do you work sme hours each shifts. Is it mandtory to pick up extra shifts if working part time.
Fulltime is 30 hours & up per week, part-time is less than 30 hours per week. A schedule is released for shifts. They have a site called Work Anywhere Amica that you can pickup extra shifts at all Amica properties within your chosen areas. If short handed they may call you to full-fill shifts, otherwise extra shifts can be picked up on-line.
I dislike that I can’t do anything to stop the ill treatment of staff and residents by senior management
