Various Management Positions including Executive Director in Various
No RegretsHome level management and front line team members were excellent to work with. Very passionate and committed. Breaking into senior leadership was incredibly difficult and had to leave the organization to continue career growth.

Worst company to work forCheap company, they want to cut corners on anything they can, but residents pay a lot. You work 38-40 hours a week, but they want keep you as a part time. Poor management,

Negative environmental, big company making profit off people living in long term care Revera is a privately owned for profit company. Although Revera attempts to come across as business that cares for people, working for Revera it becomes clear very quickly that this company’s goal is to make as much profit as possible off people living in long term care. They cut as many corners as possible, so they can make as much profits as possible. The nursing floors are often short staffed, and sometimes residents wait up to 30 minutes to use the washroom. They’re often short staffed, maybe because staff is not treated well.
Dietary Aide in Winnipeg, MB
Nice place, but management could improveHas a very cozy atmosphere and nice décor, but management could have improve a bit as miscommunication does happen. The residents and other staff members are nice.

Stressful situations every dayTo be a “receptionist” at Revera you will need to have a very thick skin. I’ve been yelled at, in person or over the phone, by family members of residents, for issues that are completely out of my control, one too many times now. I will be looking for work elsewhere, and never again in senior care. You are not a receptionist, you are more like a unit clerk in a hospital. I have a serious problem with “receptionists” being asked to find replacements for LPNs and HCA’s that call in sick or just don’t show up. One LPN actually said to me, I mean, you are just sitting here doing nothing. WE are so busy. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. There is not one single moment of my day that there is not more that I need to get done. If you are an LPN or an HCA this would be a great job for you. Expect to be making deliveries at any time, any where in the building. Be prepared to take orders for meals over the phone and physically rush them to the kitchen to be prepared after the cut off time for trays. The Covid screening for visitors entering the building MUST be done accurately every single time, no matter the phone calls, or the number of people at the desk at any given moment. If you are tough as nails, and have the right answer for everything, this is the job for you. On weekends, there is no management on site. There will be many situations you will need to figure out all on your own. There is no possible way to cover all these things during a training period. I’ve been a “receptionist” at Revera now for 9 months and every single shift I have a situation I have no idea how to handle. I have never received any feedback from my manager, so I guess? the decisions I’ve made are ok? I’m telling you right now on a scale of receptionist jobs, this one is HARD, and STRESSFUL. If you like that sort of thing, congratulations, you have found your best work.
