Low pay, plus not only do you have to help with residents personal care, you have to clean rooms...vacuum, clean toilet, get trays, and even doing nightly laundry. Was not for me. They are constantly short staffed.

Receptionist (Part-time) (Current Employee) – Mission, BC – 9 August 2018
If you are a compassionate, caring, all around friendly person who can problem solve and appreciate the importance of your presence to the Seniors who live here, than this could be the place for you. You will not get rich here but you will become enriched and rewarded for your genuine efforts to make peoples lives better. Carrington House is a home and that's how it feels. Supportive Management and staff are key to making this Residence hold on to these qualities. Not to say there's no wrinkles to iron out. ( no pun intended) I have yet to know a family that's without some dysfunction 😊
Home like Residence, Union support.
Staff shortages, Management would benefit from more support staff, wages are mediocre in some departments.
Part Time Registered Practical Nurse (RPN) (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 8 August 2018
With this company, you are expected to do equal or even more work compared to other homes while being paid less. Most front line staff are paid minimum wage & other staff are paid less then their counterparts in other facilities.
Excellent Corporate policies and procedures in place.
DIRECTOR OF CARE (Current Employee) – Cornwall, ON – 1 August 2018
Excellent team work and atmosphere within the residences. Always hours available and room to grow in the company. There is also the opportunity to relocate within the company as well. We remember that we have the privilege to work in our residence home.

Guest attendant (Former Employee) – Sudbury, ON – 3 July 2018
Residents and coworkers were very friendly. As a psw you are basically a glorified housekeeper with a fancy title. Do not waste your expertise here. As a guest attendant you have to multi task throughout your shift. On a daily basis you need to do housekeeping throughout the day, serve meals in the dining area. Dispense medication in their apartment or the dining area. To gain experience in all departments this a place to start.
Beautiful retirement home
Cement floors, hard on your feet standing and walking all day.
COOK & SERVER (Former Employee) – Stratford, ON – 1 July 2018
Management is Poor. Residents are awesome. Even though you cook the food your not given a free meal a shift which is a bummer and the manager can't seem to figure out how to order supplies for everyone
Server (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 27 June 2018
On a typically work day it is the responsibility of a server to take orders from residents, bring them their appetizer, main dish and desert, clean the tables and the kitchen and make sure the residents are enjoying themselves. I have learned many skills from this job including patients, politeness, communication skills and I have improved my ability to multitask. This job is for someone who is physically able to walk around most of the day while being able to stay positive and provide the best experience for the residents. The workplace is fast pace with a lot of action at all times which will keep you moving. The staff in the kitchen are extremely fun and kind hearted people who are all hard working and will help new staff fit in comfortably. The best part about this job is being able to connect and listen to the stories that some of the residents have and it is interesting to hear what they have to say. To conclude this job is a great fit for anyone who connects with people easily, is naturally charismatic and is able to focus on many things at once.
