Efficient and communicative co workers
Client Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 September 2018
The company was efficient in getting me started, had me well trained on my first day, and maintained good communication throughout my work. I couldn't progress in the company due to lack of qualifications.

Productive day at work
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON11 May 2018
Doing weekend shifts are not usually the easiest, being that I am very productive during the week. A lot has being learned since working as a PSW because I get to express all that I've being taught. I do in-home care and the hardest part of the job is baring responsible for your client all alone, knowing that everything is in your hands. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the client, assisting with ADL's and just making their day better.

Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON11 December 2017
Not a great place to work. They take you for granted and squeeze every drop of energy and productivity out of you they can.
The client can make it worth it for a while. Co-workers were wonderful.
Pros
Work is meaningful and rewarding.

Zero work life balance/ plenty of unpaid overtime.

The administration is very considerate and helpful.
Personal Support Worker (Part time) (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON1 October 2017
Duties are given depending on one's availability. Workload depends on the assigned client's status.
Work is good as part time only for there no guarantee that a regular client will be assigned.

The best company I've ever worked for as a PSW
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON22 October 2016

Horribly unprofessional.
Client (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON25 May 2016
QUALICARE has got to be one of the most frustrating companies to communicate with. They do not follow the schedule they have put in place and agreed upon with their client. Client goes without help for days when their PSWs are sick. Clients are expected to rearrange their day on short notice of cancelation or changes. Their PSWs sit on their phone and complain their social lives rather than doing the work theyes are sent to do. When you make several complaints they drop their clients without any resolution to any issues, without telling you, giving you a notice or any explanation. DO YOUR RESEARCH AND DO NOT USE QUALICARE HOME CARE!!
Pros
None
Cons
Communication

Thoughtful and Caring Group
RPN Staff Nurse/ Patient (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON24 May 2016
I found that the staff and management were focused and caring. They try to do their best to enhance the lives of all their clients. The struggle is to find and staff positions that may be only a few hours a day or that require extensive driving.
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
Inconsistent hours and cancelations

Bad Management and no room for growth
Non Technical (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 October 2015
The most enjoyable part of the job were the co-workers.
The least enjoyable was the boredom and bad management. Management is emotion driven and are abusive with staff. There are temporary moments where they are "nice", but for the most part, it is negative. Benefits are minimal. Bonuses and raises are non existent, unless they favour you.
Continue looking even if you are desperate.
Pros
Employees are amazing
