The residents are what keep you there

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Worked there for almost 2 years - I loved the job and loved the residents! - A lot of variety in the position - Pay was sub par - Raises were often missed because “you’re getting a raise later” (often due to minimum wage going up or similar) - Management did not always conduct themselves in a professional way - There was a lot of passing the buck and favouritism. You could throw the pay grid out the window. All in all, I stayed as long as I did because it was a fun job and I love to help people and make them smile.

Not a good place to work

Not a good place to work at all. Too much back stabbing. Residents are great don’t like the way they are being treated. I would not go back to the Gardens at all. A bad place to work. Staff come and go constantly

Pros

Nice residents

Cons

Too much back stabbing and no communication at all

Educational, very informative

I enjoyed working with the PSW’s and management there. They are understanding. I learned so much from them. I enjoyed looking after the seniors who lived there. I found the job very rewarding.

Easy going, but, stressful..

Due to the pandemic all workers are overstretched.. The employees and management are great to work with. The residents are wonderful, and very understanding of the employee shortage. The gardens has a great benefits package as well.

Pay is too low for how much we do

I think the only reason why I stayed here for as long as I did was because I was mainly there for the residents. The place is always short staffed because they pay minimum wage.Management was nice but weren't the best and probably could do better. Honestly I don't suggest working here unless you are already financially stable. Because this job will most definitely not help pay all of your bills.

Pros

Residents, Food, nice coworkers

Cons

Pay was awful, they are not very empathitic

Too much responsibility

I really enjoyed working at the Gardens. Residents are awesome and staff become family. .... lots of responsibility for all departments, they should pay accordingly. There are many other local jobs which pay more for less responsibility. Most managers are nice.

Pros

decent benefit package

Cons

low wages

"Thank you for taking the time to review the Gardens of Parry Sound. You couldn't be more right when you say our residents are amazing. We agree! We are lucky to work with so many outstanding seniors everyday! Thanks for your comments about employee recognition. Lately we've been putting more emphasis than ever on recognizing and rewarding performance, and your feedback is the perfect reminder of how much that recognition matters. Please feel free to talk to your manager about any concerns you have and ask them to help support you to achieve your goals. A conversation like that will not only be productive, but will also make the Gardens a better place to work and live!"
