Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 November 2017
Not a good Company to work for. Carefor should change the company name to Careless. Management only care about themselves. No job security. PSS is the only department that has no union. And it's the department that could use union protection the most. When you work for Carefor you become their possession. Forget about your life/family. Co-ordinators are rude. Management don't care about the clients needs and wants. They send non palliative trained staff to see palliative clients. They don't seem to understand what a casual worker means. And they seem to keep the bad workers and scare off the good workers. Horrible place of employment.
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 August 2017
Learned and acquired so many new skills in my 5 years of employment. Very disorganized company and lacks support for their staff members.
Partnering agencies often create malicious work environments for their staff. Not very good at handling issues between staff within the organizations. Despite hard work and commitment to providing this unique service , overall you are not a valued employee.
Exciting and fast past
high burn out, malicious environment with partnering agencies = no support from management.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 13 June 2017
My experience with Carefor was nothing but positive from the first day i started to the last day. I was a receptionist and I truly enjoyed working there. I didn't have the easiest position in the company being the receptionist and on the phone all day, but i knew i had Carefor behind me supporting me all the way. Going to work with Carefor was something I looked forward to every morning.
Great people, great support, very accessible managers and very friendly environment.
District Coordinator (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 29 January 2017
I found it a really easy place to blend in. There's a lot of support from colleagues and management alike. There's, very often, something to celebrate with plenty of food and drinks and people to share with.
Though work can sometimes be very demanding, it's always reassuring to know that supervisors are always willing to help find a way out and get things going.
District Coordinator PSS Department (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 14 July 2016
Other than few people there being really nice Carefor is like a dog chasing its on tail over and over. very disorganized. Management is only worried about how they look as opposed how the place is actually ran and how the clients feel.
miss some of the good workers, carefor needs full overhaul of management to be a good place to work. in some areas very caddy and backstabbing attitude.
