Can be fun, but management is apathetic with zero advancement
Housekeeping and Dining (Former Employee) – British Columbia – 18 March 2019
Workplace culture was amazing, but the management was apathetic and lacked care in promoting the culture. Working and serving seniors is an amazing experience, and they are so thankful and appreciative; if only the management was the same!
False promises, puts on the facade they care and are working on changes when they aren't, told to ignore illegal and unethical workplace environments (numerous cases). Very apt to give you extra hours as needed, but only when they absolutely need you as the last resort. Was told by management numerous times, as well as other employees were told that "they just need a body". It led to unhealthy work environments as the culture enthusiasm dropped from all the employees, and half no longer cared.
The hardest part about the job is if you care and want to partake in the growth of potentially an amazing organization, but then have to suppress that and bite the bullet. The rest of the employees still there enjoy working with seniors, but did not appreciate the environment and were either looking for other work or just putting up with it as they had no fear of being fired and it paid the bills.
Numerous employees were promoted, or retained their management status without repercussions, warning, or official write-ups when they violated company policies and/or harassed other employees. This statement alone signifies the deterioration of the culture.
Expect to come in when sick, even though it goes against Fraser Health policy and workplace policies.
