Typical Government Organization

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
As expected of a government organization, it can be slow sometimes. You can see people just cruising and folks that are just past their prime and should not be leading anymore.

Good place to work

Very fast paced. Usually worked short staffed. Loved working with the elderly. Worked with some staff that where there only for the pay cheque. The ones that lover their job went above and beyond their duties. The hardest part of the job was the work load. Did not like working nights-not enough staff.

Pros

lots of work available

Cons

heavy work load

Not the best place to work. I did a 10years, yes I say that like you're in jail..... cuz you ARE. Bullies galore including mangers...... just run... speaking as a care aid point of view.

Pros

Great residents, some good workers

Cons

Mangers bully, some co worker bully..... favoritism is huge part of working for NH

It has been a rewarding career

I have enjoyed my employment with NHA . Easy to work with people a very team approach to help new hires . I have learned lots in the 30 years I have been there . We had a very busy OBS dept for years and that was a learning curve which I enjoyed very much . There is always other areas to work in if you would like a change . Everyone is so supportive .

Pros

Supportive management

Cons

Salary

Typical health care provider

Staffing issues same as everywhere proactive in supporting new and junior staff Lots of opportunities for new staff to move up Once in management it can get a bit slower to have opportunities to move

This job can be rewarding and pays quite well but can be stressful at times.

I have enjoyed working with mental health and addictions clients but the field is constantly changing with more psychosocial rehabilitative practices being put in. This has been both a good and bad thing as some earlier practices were put in place for reasons and many things have been changed back when we found the new practices were not working out. There have been many challenges along the way. I work in a 24 hour facility and it seems to be often understaffed so if someone calls in sick it is not unusual to work a 16 hour shift which can get quite tiring. I would prefer not to work such long hours. I feel I have learned a lot from the job but might like to try some thing in a different location.

care aide

I was responisble for getting my pts up and out of bed and putting them down for sleep, we try to respect the individuals personal preferences when it came to providing care and still keeping the pts independence in order while still providing qulaity daily living care.

Poor morale and working cinditions

Poor morale and working conditions. Management disregards employee input and there is very little respect towards employees. Bullying issues are ignored. Heavy workload

Professional and pleasant place to work

Work with residents. Getting them up from bed in the morning. Helping feed breakfast, lunch and dinner if they need assistance. Then in evening put residents to bed after snack time. get everyone comfortable before filing paperwork for end of day and giving report to nurses.

Great Place to work

Great team and open communication between staff and management. Great work hours. Not a lot of options to pick up extra work in the community. Prince George is a great community to work in.

Difficult to advance career.

I have found it difficult to advance a career, even after significant educational opportunities completed. It seems upper management has a pre conceived plan as to whom they want where... and if you are not part of the plan, or they are not aware of you - you have little to no chance of advancement.

Pros

good benefits.

Cons

poor advancement opportunities from within organization.
