Enjoyed my time

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Opportunity to grow, struggle with consistency but mostly good people in charge. Felt that my time there was appreciated and managers took the time to acknowledge staffs work.

Terrible working environment

Terrible management. Your voice is never heard. Talking to management is like talking to a wall. They load you up with more and more work and don't care about the stress you are under each day. High stress with little to no support from management. No training involved it's a, "figure things out for yourself" work place. The pay does not cover cost of living unless you live with 6 other roommates. If I could give IH a half a star I would. Do not work here!!

Terrible Management

Terrible Management. Does not care about workers. Short staffed for a reason. And workers are gagged and not allowed to talk about how bad it really is.

Pros

Wonderful Clients

Cons

Great productive work place.

Fast paced over worked. No room to grow. No advancements unless corporate. Wages do not match others in privatized work places. Interior Health is under paid. With everything else gone up around us they will not increase wages.

Pros

The staff amazing

Cons

Long hours under paid

Difficult work

Worked in Home care, short staffed alot, always moving you to different areas than you are scheduled for. Going into clients homes can be stressful half of them do not want you there and are very rude. Difficult driving around at night looking for addresses.

High stress environment

No resources. No supports for patients. Little management involved with keeping morel up and what is there seems superficial. Very clinical based and not very patient centred. High burn out rate. If you can disconnect from the work you do, avoid emotions, approach from a clinical lens and feel like your helping with limited resources then this is the place for you.

Pros

Pay

Cons

Stress

Sucks the life out of you

Terrible place to work. There are too many managers micromanaging one department. Staff gossip about patients and other staff, but nothing ever gets done about it. Depending on what union you're in the pay and benefits are usually terrible.Be prepared for stress leave or quitting in anger if you work here longer than 5 years.

Just alright

When you aren’t short staffed it is enjoyable but are almost always short staffed. Makes for a stressful work environment. Hope it gets better sooner than later.

Pros

Pay, job security, benefits

Cons

Short staff, long hours

Interior health is a good place to work

Worked with interior health for many years. There is often changeover, but that is typical in health care. Overall my experience has been positive, and I would recommend.

Great co workers

Great colleagues, good work life balance. Competitive pay. Management is poor, job security is questionable. Very little appreciation to staff for working throughout the pandemic.

Nice company and team to work with.

It is a very satisfying and very humbling feeling to be able to serve my community and its vulnerable residents. It was very hard work but with the clients/ patients smiles, it was a very worthwhile job I have accomplished. Thank you Interior health Authority and people I worked with, for the years of dedicated team and order⭐️.

Grand Forks BC area is really awful

Managers do not follow union rules at all.1- In Grand Forks BC Theirs a Manager That believes The Union Should Not Be Followed, and makes you suffer for not being a part of their clicks. From Grand Forks BC to BeaverDell is a terrifying experience.2- Violence through out Midway BC and Managers are okay with it.3- You are told they only use shift call ins from automated phone services, but surprise you with full shifts weeks above full time and say you have to. Which is well documented.4- Grand Forks BC admins are fired and forced to quit on a continuous basis to fool the next group of admins.5- Some Boundary offices people are abused quite badly mentally and there are many many open investigations.6- This company does not respect you in any way, like it states in there ads, you are used by current grand forks bc area manager of the admins.7- Speak up against the abuse of this company. Just accept a position in Grand Forks Through Beaverdell and You will be a victim as well. Before signing up with them ask about current investigations into unfair treatments and such.

Pros

Some great admins in the area

Cons

Will be destroyed on purpose and shuffled aside for another

Stressful and morale very lowHigh turnoverUnrealistic expectations

Would not recommend a PSW job to anyone,especially one where you have to drive for work, no compensation for vehicle other than gas yet most workers use vehicles ninety percent of the time for work.

Very unprofessional management. Zero support for the community careaides. Overwhelming schedules. Not given enough time to complete your task.

Poorly managed. Zero support. Overloaded schedules. They do not care about their employees nor the clients. Over loaded schedules. No employee recognition. Do not give you enough time to do your care. Do not give you travel time.

Pros

Rewarding to care for the clients. Lots of hours & over time

Cons

Poor management, no support. Under paid for the job you deliver. Takes alot of working hours to get a raise.

Good place to work unless you…

If you can play the drama and playground games, you’ll be fine. If you suck up to the supervisors, you’ll be fine. If not, you won’t get the imminent offers regardless of seniority. Well, that’s how it is in Kel. We are still trying to log enough claims to have the Union have a reason to step forward… but She’s been there 18 years playing the games for at least 10. The rest of the facilities are quite different for the most part - less toxicity and less contempt.

Pros

Good benefits with landing a permanent line, there are always lots of relief lines that come up, No shortage of work

Cons

Could take a while to get a permanent, Can be toxic, Management in some places will knock you down until you leave (job transfer or quit)

Bulling and toxic work culture, No management communication. Clique. Poor staffing. Gossip malicious.

High stress, fast paced, malicious gossip, no confidentiality. Toxic work culture. Poor management with no communication, retaliation from management and the board of directors.Best part was being part of the patients lives and being there for them

Pros

work

Cons

management and staff culture
Was this review helpful?

No respect for collective agreements or employment laws.

IHA is known for a toxic work culture, but it has worsened during the time of COVID. Management does not work to maintain nursing standards or quality of care but is aggressive in its treatment of nurses who work to maintain standards of care. My worst work experience occurred while working for IHA.

Pros

They need nurses.

Cons

No support for workers and aggressive, ill-educated management.

Not what you think...

Although it seems good at first, there is too much micromanagement, and not for the better. They can change the rules by pulling things out of the collective agreement with the union (like in Jan/2021), and it's not for the better of employees. Be prepared to work anywhere with the entire region of that office, as they can send you anywhere from the Slocan Valley, to Salmo, to Kaslo, to Crawford Bay, and anywhere in-between that. You're schedule can change daily. They switched over to an online app instead of having care binders on top of clients fridges, gives you less time to do your actual job, job app tracks you and your every move. Too much change to keep employees happy.
