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.

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.


Residents, Food, nice coworkers

Love the residents and co-workers

The residents are great and interacting with them makes going to work fun. If you enjoy working with seniors, you'll enjoy your work. Fun events for the residents and I had fun working them.

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.


decent benefit package


low wages
