I enjoy working with the residents and I love the “family” atmosphere

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A good place to work but there is a lot of drama between co workers and things do not stay confidential when they are supposed to be. I wish that being part time I could pay into dentist and prescription benefits as that is only available to the full time staff. I am officially part time but I usually work full time hours.


Love the residents and most of the staff, feel like a family


Stressful, often short staffed and equipment and/or supplies are broken or not available

Very difficult place to work

Always short staffed . You are always exhausted and over worked. The management do not care if you leave or not. Even with the union. Try to treat staff better, then you can retain them. Don't let them be burn out.


Good wages


Very stressful

Fast paced environment

You have to be fast because of the work load. Keep most of your opinions to yourself. You must follow the residents care plan. Some staff are excellent

Great place to work . Highly recommended

Pioneer manor is a city job, therefore the pay is the best it gets in our city... the atmosphere can be a little hectic and fast paced but this is to be expected in health care as every minute counts... pioneer manor is an amazing place to work. Its clean, the staff and management are friendly and it didnt take me long to feel like I was really part of the team.


Great pay. Can work as much as you want. Always shifts available


Long term care can be an emotional place to work if you get attatched to your residents.

Well managed & by the book company

Loved working here on afternoon shift.Staff is very friendly, everyone is helpful with each other. Staff is very well educated & updated With new policies/ safety education. I would recommend this facility to anyone that is serious in healthcare field.


Appreciated by management


Lots of gossiping so keep to yourself

Very stressful place to work. Very high demands on the staff bordering on unsafe. They will nail you for every infraction but will never give you credit for going above and beyond. Read the book about Pioneer Manor before stepping foot in the building.

Pioneer Manor

Pioneer Manor is a great place to work , staff are welcoming but are over worked so can come across "short " when you pick up the pace and pitch in everything is better

TERRIBLE Management

The PC'S or any management for that fact are inconsiderate and terrible people. They dont appreciate the hard work you do for the residents. Terrible!!

Judgemental and intrusive

Worst experience ever working. Bon bon eating judgemental women who have no life outside of the job. I was treated very poorly and everyone talks trash behind your back. The chance you are given is laced with setting you up for failure. They took my confidence and my desire to ever work in that feild again.

Management at that nursing home will be the destruction of It. Worked there for 5 years and new management comes and goes so fast you cant keep track of whos your boss

If you care about your residents and not just a paycheck, work elsewhere.

Horrible place to work if you have a heart, truly care about the residents wellbeing and follow ministry standards. Management (or lack thereof) is atrocious. The concept of "program coordinators" is basically a ploy, to make HCA's and POA's believe someone actually cares about the residents and workplace health and safety. Staff are warned of ministry visits beforehand.

Their Pay is the Best for PSW

I really enjoyed my time working there. Of course with all facilities; there are too many patients not enough time. Also always short of staff which make the days long and difficult.

Enjoyable work place

working at Pioneer Manor I was able to utilize my nursing skills in a professional manner. I worked with great staff and the facility was clean and run well.

A good experience for the future

I do my placement in the Activity area, I learn that some of the residents like to do activities and socialize with other residents. The most enjoyable part of the placement is to see their smiles and when they are happy because it is a good feeling.


interacting with the residents


don't have any

great salary but no chance of advancement

Very difficult to get better shifts if you are new. Shifts are predetermined in advance and seniority gets the best shifts. Very difficult if you are trying to raise a family and have work and life balance.

Working at pioneer manor

Its fast paced its always under staffed and not safe . To me you are just a number .They dont care how things are ran, and Scheduling is a joke. The good things are the residents , they become like family . If you make it to full-time they have good benefits and vacation package. Its hard to secure full-time they are always temp full-time postings. They want you to work full-time hours without the benefits.


the residents


full time hours without benefits

Fine summer work

Easy summer job, all I had to do was cut grass. Sitting mowers, wippersnippers. Clean up garbage, keep the grounds nice. Low standards because students tend to be idiots, according to the stories.

rewarding job

pioneer has some of the most amazing residents, i had an amazing time with my placement as a psw at pioneer, it is so rewarding to help the individuals that cant always help themselves and its great to be able to just talk to them and make them smile or laugh, most of the staff i worked with are amazing individuals who love there job and love the people they care for but there are some who just try to get through the shift, all in all its good money and as long as you go in with that care in your heart nothing will stop you
