Community Support Worker in Invermere, BC
Very secretive companyThe position itself in serving my clients was wonderful, i loved my clients, i helped them advance and enjoy more of life. however if there were issues with the caregivers or parents we had no support from the company. I was never told who my boss actually was, never met in person, or had a clear description of what the job was or how to advance. They liked to hire outside of the province, and area, before sourcing for advancement within the company. I found that frustrating myself. there was no company culture, no bonus, no opportunity for advancement.
Unhealthy work environmentThere are constantly battles between lower management and staff, everyone steps on eachother. Some employees think they know everything just because they worked here longer. The upper management lady's seem very nice and caring. But from the rumors and gossip clearly there is no confidentiality in lower management.
Personal Support Worker (PSW) in Kamloops, BC
Nursing staff is amazing, very poor residential management teamFor a while the company was an overall 1 but since the RN have taken over again it's a solid 3, management is still a mess but the newest manager actually has been in the field a while. But the rest are always relying on staff to do things. Training is none existing and they put you in dangerous situations constantly. I find only way things change at the company is when a social worker tells them to change other wise they could care less about staff well being. The union is actually not a union at all and is an for the employer not the employee.
Good Pay, Kind Management, Long hours The job has always been super supportive of my journey. I am really impressed with the new management and how they care about their employees on a personal level. The work is challenging and it is long hours. These reviews are disgruntled employees that do not do their job with integrity and management holds them accountable.
