Administrative Support, Facility Service (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 11 September 2018
I enjoyed my time at Homewood. The Director was awesome and the staff was warm and friendly. Job security is questionable as the administrative Jobs are not unionized,. It is a warm family like environment.
Registered Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 5 September 2018
Homewood Health Centre is a great place to work. I feel supported by the nursing management and enjoy that there is a variety of in-service learning opportunities and encouragement for continuing education. Nurses at Homewood are highly involved in patients care. We are skilled, talented, and passionate. I love that we are listened to and also respected by the interdisciplinary team.
Beautiful grounds, gratifying work, sense of community with co-workers
Substance Abuse Case Manager (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 24 May 2018
Depending on what department and Management you work for, Expectations of the job are high with minimal reward and compensation. Job burn out and increase in turn over happens at the two year mark. Job satisfaction is low due to the lack of advancement in the company.
Differcult, disgruntaled, substance abuse clients, verably disrespect and no debrief.
Personal Support Worker (PSW) (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 17 February 2018
i enjoy my position at homewood, the staff are pretty friendly. Team work is important in this position and most staff work together well to provide excellent care to patients. i am learning lots and appreciate the training and guidance that staff give. the only drawback is hours when you are a new hire. I wish set part time lines were available.
challenging job, opportunities for personal and professional growth
Intake Counsellor (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 13 February 2018
The job itself is decent but the pay is very poor with little to no raise opportunities. The management preaches self care and work life balance but when push comes to shove they do not advocate for the employee and allow harder and more difficult work conditions to proceed.
Very unpleasant experience. The workload is overwhelming and they are always too short on staff. So you are always overworked but underpaid. Your work is also always unvalued. The management is rude, unprofessional and my direct manager made racist and demeaning statements to me. Overall, the atmosphere was like a bad American high school sitcom with so much drama and unprofessional personalities. Horrible experience.
Staff Clinician (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 1 May 2017
Work place bullying was not taken seriously by management. Unsupervised office staff, take extended shopping breaks, rude, disrupt counselling sessions. If the Therapist addresses the issue directly the situation worsens. Ie: office reception not informing you that your client has arrived, silent treatment, workplace gossip, bullying. Would highly recommend to not work as a Staff Clinician in the Saskatoon office.
Very friendly environment where staff support colleagues. Management and HR are very unorganized, shift swap and vacation time are difficult to receive, and units are constantly not staffed accordingly.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 24 February 2016
Homewood Health has gone over a number of changes in the last couple of years, and there has been growing pains with this. But I find that overall, your ideas are listened too and though things might not change as quickly as everyone likes, process are implemented off the back of employee feedback.
It's nice to work for an organisation that really does make a positive impact in people's lives and doesn't just make "things".
Ideas are encouraged
Communication is not always as clear as it could be
