Poor management

Not the worse place to work overall but there are many cons.. 1. The management changes every few months and the management seems to get worse everytime there is a new hire.2. They prioritize agency workers over veteran employees.3. No respect from other staff, you are seen only as a cleaner nothing else.4. Goes through employees so much you can't even remember everyone's names.5. Covid outbreaks were an absolute mess and never any logic to the rules or regulations the home made up.6. Definitely favoritism for certain employees.7. Any issues or concerns aren't taken seriously by management or other hire ups.8. Overly strict rules when it comes to cleaning procedures and they rely on if you wiped a spot off a towel rod rather than if the jobs were done to the best of your ability and following safety regulations.9. You weren't allowed to speak to residents more than a simple hello or you were told you were not doing your job, this happened many times as I was told by management my job was to clean and not to socialize. 10. Most of the other staff members would put random jobs onto you so they didn't have to do them even if you did not have the qualifications to do the jobs. 11. One word, Gossipers.

Pros

Set schedules.

Cons

Poor management, lack of respect, no room for growth, FAVORITISM for certain employees especially agency staff over veteran employees..

Great place for getting volunteer experience

I found this place a good time to spend my summer, as talking and spending time with seniors is very fun. They have many stories to tell you and being there for them is all they really need. As a volunteer, I fed residents and wheeled them from place to place. Overall, a great experience.

Big company

Some professional co workers are helpful. Most are crocodile with crab mentality. No permanent advancement due to competition and insecurities of co wirkers.

Its an absolute beautiful place to work.

I've been working there from 2016 to now. As in any work environment you will find staff that's helpful and staff that's a bit in their own world. But if you go in with and attitude of work you will be ok. In my experience, management dose manage. As much as the staff may not like some of the changes that is being made, it's business. You just have to follow the rules and you don't have to worry.

negative environment

Staff are neglected and left to fend for themselves, inadequate training provided and complete disorganization within the management team. Human resource department is run by highly insulting and negative individuals.

review

Working at Holland Christian Homes has directed me on my path to becoming a nurse. The hardest part of the job is managing more than one resident at a time. It can be difficult at times to manage. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to interact with the residents and take part in the daily activities that go on everyday.

Productive and Team orientated place

This workplace is more of a home setting to provide care for tenants who are getting ill with age and are unsafe to be left alone. Daily duties include bathing, dressing, preparing meals, administering medications, assisting to handle emergencies, have a work phone to communicate with the department and all of the facility. Positive and friendly environment to work in, they do not focus only on the physical health but also their mental and emotional well being of staff and tenants/residents. The hardest part of the job was seeing someone in pain as I can be empathetic as I understand there pain and frustration. The most enjoyable part of the day is communicating with the amazing staff and tenants.

comfortable environment.

A good place to work where the managerial team isn't breathing down your backs. They expect the staff to act in a mature and responsible way. Because of that , the staff's behavior is that of a mature individual and not some one that is there for just a pay cheque.

Pros

lots of shifts

Cons

bad attitude from some staff

This nursing home provided me with more experience, I have learned a lot from my coworkers and management, It contains a very hygienic and clean dining area. The only downside is that I did not receive enough work hours.

Holland Christian Homes - PSW review

Very busy schedule due to staff shortage and cuts backs, thus, there is an increased workload for current staff. Work Culture - is okay, at times it can be difficult to approach the nurses about a problem because everyone knows each other so sometimes you don't get the help and support you need. Overall, the staff you work with make the difference between a good and bad work day.

Cons

not enough staff support, not enough supplies, no paid breaks, not able to take break
