Health Care Aide in Edmonton, AB
Working at chartwell is fun its just their starting wage is low
I don't have any regrets working in this company. The only thing that I don't like is their starting wages/salary is very low compare to the other company who is assisted living as well.
Other than the residents, the place isn’t an enjoyable environment at all. The kitchen staff are so unkind and they exclude anyone new, you’re given very little training before being thrown into being on your own. The residents get served mediocre food daily.
Cheap Company .
Been working here over 10 years and make same pay as someone there 1 year. Management not very good like always spying on you and the Chef treat his staff like they are in grade 1 and is very unprofessional when talking to his employees i would advise not working here. Also co workers are very rude and disrespectful.
Programs Manager in Thunder Bay, ON
Regular staff (non management) often made more than I did by picking up shifts without doing the same amount of work as me. I wasn't made aware of there being an on-call rotation, and it got sprung on me. The work environment was not great; a lot of cattiness. I was often told to make my role my own, take it and run with it (etc) but was then micromanaged and/or told I was doing things incorrectly. A coworker and I walked into a residents room and found out that they had passed away and were both quite shaken, and no one checked in on us from the rest of the management team at the home nor the region.
Terrible place to work management team is useless
If your offered a job here turn it down! The pay is terrible! And the management team is worse than the pay! They require you toBend over backwards for little pay and no appreciation. And will manipulate their non English speaking staff to no end. Even the management team is looking for new jobs, no one is happy. I feel bad for the residents that live there bad food, terrible activities dept. and they pay way to much for nothing. Incredibly TOXIC work environment and head office is aware and fixes nothing!
