Great company to work with, hours are flexible. You are able to pick up as many shifts with whatever works with your schedule and flexibility. Supervisors and managers are kind, understanding and very helpful. Majority of job sites are with the Geriatric community.

Understaffed & overworked. We have fun but won't stand for people who aren't there to work. Some might consider this bullying but its NOT. Good place to work.

Fantastic residents and mostly very compassionate carers HOWEVER there is a lot of employee bullying which is tolerated and not dealt with. A fast turnover of staff because of this. Preferential treatment is obvious. In my 2 years with the company I witnessed at least 4 people leave because of this issue.

Everyone here is kind and fair. They treat you well, work is available. Pay is decent, you get paid more when job location is further away. Mostly assisted living facilities.
Pros
Work is different every day; develops your understanding of many systems.

Management has no interest in development of employee relations. They lie, and accept lies from poor workers and generally foster poor behavior and deceitful practices. Employee turnover is about 100% per year. If you enjoyed Junior High school behavior , you will do well. I would not recommend working for GEM in the HRM area , its no place for grownups. Most of the employees are older hands who will take any abuse, just so they can look after their residents, who they feel would suffer if they left.

My day-to-day was never the same. At the beginning of the week, I would process payrolls. At the end of the week, I would do the payroll liabilities. I learned how to handle work pressure. Everyone was kind and helpful.

The management at GEM healthcare services is friendly. At GEM you don't actually work at the GEM office, you are deployed to assisted living homes where you work.

A lot of bullying both from management and the other staff. You can tell a lot of the staff didn't enjoy their job - it made it hard for anyone else to enjoy their work as well.

I have no further review at this time. I have worked here for 7 years and enjoy the facility. I have worked through all aspects of nursing here and have felt supported in my positions. The staff are wonderful and the residents are amazing.

Busy, face paced fun environment.GEM realizes that from housekeeping to administering medication, our staff is both the foundation and the face of our business. GEM knows that their staff are individuals who make them who they are, so they focus on hiring those who complement their mission best.

Typically the work-place is exciting and conducive to upgrade one self. It allows for one to develop his/her ability in the work environment. However, there is room for improvement.
