I wouldn't recommend it.. i stayed for my clients not the company ever
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON12 January 2019
the only enjoyable thing about working for this horribly unorganized understaffed and terribly run company is the same that's amazing in every personal support worker job your clients honestly I stayed many years to long because I had many clients for many years. they make it hard to leave cause you want to always be there for the families and clients that you have become so close to over many years of service. I should have left many years ago the company is not the greatest place to work all together they are always having to replace office staff due to the lack of ability to hire people capable of doing their job properly in the first place then their lack of knowledge then comes back on the feild staff . feild staff are also not treated with the same equality as office staff what so ever even to the point we have different holidays its ridiculous, they are also so far behind when it comes to how staff logs in and out as they jus started going mobile only weeks ago.
Pros
none
Cons
they do not care nor give gratitude for anything done by staff

Terrible management and pay. Not worth your time
Child care worker (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon7 January 2019
Dont apply here.
Save yourself a headache
Only good thing about working here is the kids you'll meet.

You'll never get a raise full of empty promises. Training is terrible and leaves you with no understanding of the daily job. You'll never see a raise of any incentives whatsoever.
Youpo constantly ne harrassed to work extra hours with no overtime pay.
Plus they will not pay you your full wage and they always miss paying stat holidays and never give you an explanation as to why and they wont pay you what you're owed.
All in all save yourself a head ache and stress filled life.
CBI is a terrible company.
Pros
The kids
Cons
Everything else

Not worth it
Hca (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB27 December 2018
So you go school for 5 months to become a health care aide, you paid 8k for that course to make 19 an hour in the market gap, then you get a job at cbi where you have to drive your own car and pay your own gas making 16 an hour with min wage at 15 in Alberta, then your car will need maintenance and then you will find out that youre not even, you cant repay your student loan nor make a living out this awful company, when they charge AHS for the clients and pay you a nut, so dont waste your time here and turn around.
Pros
No boss around
Cons
Pay your gas, no benefits, awful hr rate less than the market

Not a Good place to work
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON16 December 2018
Do Not work here. Disgusted with the hours , and the way the co ordinators speak to you. Especially during stat holidays. Like we dont know how it works. And like we dont know what. " time specific " means. For real??????? The msgs. We are left on the IVR. Can be Way to Long. And Irritating to listen to. Most of the time they just repeat the same msgs. Over and over again. Flexibility is. ZILCH, ON THEIR PART. And they keep adding on. Fill Ins. So you dont make the 30 hours a wk. You dont even have a chance to say yes or no. And are expwcted to work. 12 days in a row to get your every second weekend off. And therr is. ZERO. Work life balance. And they. DO NOT CARE......
Pros
Nothing. Not even so much as a stinkin raise. In. 5 YEARS
Cons
They treat you like a Child .

Continuing Care Assistant (Current Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK12 December 2018
This is a good job if you are fresh out of college or you just need to make some extra cash. The biggest thing that I love about this job is working with the clients, they are the reason I go to work every day. Management is excellent, but the pay and advancement, not so much.
As for pay and advancement it is absolutely terrible even though you have a big work load and go above and beyond, favoritism is a big part with this company.

Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Calgary10 December 2018
When starting this job I waited two weeks for a computer and phone to use! There is no training of any kind for the role and be prepared to train others with no direction or training of any kind. There are no policies or procedures in the building that anyone knows of. This place needs shut down.

Horrible, simply the worst
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Courtenay, BC30 November 2018
Even 1 star is too generous. Fast food style health care. Managers are Young and career focused or old, mean and bitter.
Didn’t last long as all I can say is what a toxic place to be. Everyone is miserable, so if you like that you will be very comfortable in this office. Disorganized and soooo much work is expected. Even a lot of the clients are unhappy.
The day I left that office I felt like a heavy weight was lifted off my soul. Will never miss anything about this company. Stay away... you can see the reviews are bad at all the locations, not a coincidence at all.
Pros
Nothing unless you enjoy torture
Cons
Everything especially management/pay

Awful place to work
HCA (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 November 2018
This company will flat out pretend to your face that you are part of the team then turn around and talk about you behind your back. These are the people they have in charge. In all my years of service I have never come across such a nasty environment. If they decide they personal don’t like you they will constantly attack you. They won’t even care how hard you work. As for the wonderful people we take care of the office staff/managers won’t even ask how they are. It’s all about the numbers to them.
Pros
Absolutely nothing

The atmosphere in the office is light, and there are good opportunities to advance if you are willing to put in the work.

The Worst Place to Work
HCA (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB19 November 2018
Just to make you all aware this company is now hiding on Indeed by calling themselves by other names. All postings will lead to the same site. That should tell you all how bad it is there that they are not even proud enough about calling themselves by their actual name. CBI stands for Canadian Back Institute. No matter what name they chose to call themselves they are still the worst run company and don't care about their staff.
Pros
nothing
Cons

Terrible company
Frontline worker (Former Employee) –  BC14 November 2018
It's the worst employer I ever had. They don't respect their employees. Management does not listen to staff. Workload is insane but payment is poor. There is no way for professional development. Company cares only about money and hire only managers who have the same attitude. They declare to have values but it's nothing but lip service. If you really care about your clients, then don't work here.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
The entire company

Beware
Former employee (Former Employee) –  Canada8 November 2018
If you're an HCA, LPN, RN, PSW or whatever, avoid this company. Senior management does not care about their employees, they over work us, do not listen when you explain you're having issues and need help. They absolutely rush the hiring process and you quite honestly will be left feeling remorse for taking this role.
Pros
Literally nothing
Cons
The whole company.

If I could give them ZERO I would
LPN (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB8 November 2018
The office environment is absolutely deplorable. The field staff is treated poorly. Management has no heart. The company has 4 core values and not one manager follows it. No compassion for anything. I do not recommend working there even for the experience, you will not be supported.
Pros
The odd staff member may be ok
Cons

Disengaged Management
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB8 November 2018
If you have a choice, do not work here. The management is completely disengaged from their subordinates, treating them poorly with very little disregard for them as people. They lack direction within the company, creating roles only to eliminate them within months. While you may not be micromanaged, you are constantly watched and criticized, assumptions made during conversations behind closed doors and never given the benefit of the doubt.
Cons
Management, salary, communication

Do Not Work Here
field staff (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB4 November 2018
This is possibly the most heartless company I have ever worked for. Management couldn't care less about it's staff and they expect you to work 10 hours (some of that being your own time) a day with no support or guidance. Then you'll be blamed for everything and let go. They don't ever even consider how are clients are doing and if they are getting proper care.

You take work home
Social Worker (Former Employee) –  Oxford, ON30 October 2018
Independent contractor (self-employed), only way they "hire" social workers. Paid per visit which is restricted to one hour at client's home. Not paid for mileage, or work done outside of visits.
Pros
Schedule your own hours
Cons
Paid only when "treating" client, not hours of work taken home with you.
