You have lots of freedom to "be your own boss" (to an extent). There are general guidelines and a curriculum to follow for the Kin and the PTA positions, but you tailor the class to suit the participants using your expertise as a professional in this industry. Working alone, for me is a dream. Introverted with coworkers, extroverted in my profession, I come out of my shell knowing it is just me calling the shots. We are also constantly on the go and on the road. It really helps break up your day, to give you some alone/down time. Lastly, most importantly, the groups that you have the opportunity to teach/instruct are what make your time worthwhile. Hearing that people feel more energetic in their 80's is extremely rewarding. They tell you they have less pain and that they look forward to the socializing in the group is amazing to hear. So many older adults are so sad and depressed or in pain, etc, and if I can help in any way, I am blessed.
Great people and values.
I enjoy my work so satisfation can to help the people
With a renewed focus on customer experience and employee engagement there are many opportunities to find the right fit for every division within Lifemark. Being part of a growing business provides an exciting and challenging opportunity that is not always readily available in today's workforce.
Don't. The pay structure is based on the PTA being a "contractor". This means the PTA is considered to be a business by Revenue Canada so the PTA must pay their own income taxes and do not pay into CPP or EI. Most companies pay 'contract' workers much more than a hourly paid employee BUT not Lifemark. They pay very low for a job that requires 2 years of college education.
You wouldn't. It is a terrible place to work and they pay you as little as they possibly can
