Server (Former Employee) – Maple Ridge, BC – 13 July 2018
This was a frustrating experience. Management was incredibly inexperienced and irresponsible. Friendships were favoured over best interest of the company. Expectations were high for low pay. I loved the residents, loathed the staff and management.
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 20 June 2018
Will rip you off every opportunity they get. Always given extra work because management will never move from their desk to help out. Not enough staff because they can't keep anyone long term due to poor management.
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Riverbend, AB – 3 May 2018
WORST MANAGEMENT. If you are a student who just wants to meet the ends this job isn't for you. The management here is the worst and don't give a care to their employees especially those who were under probation on the dining room. they ask too much and so many responsibilities for a little span of 4 hours. also, I felt underpaid for all the that needs to be done. the only reason I stayed in this company was the residence most of them are very appreciative and kind to the servers but in terms of the management the worst. except for the chefs.
SERVER, Colonel By Retirement Residence (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 18 April 2018
Working in hospitality was very rewarding, and I was very lucky to have coworkers who made coming to work enjoyable. However management was not great at the time, though I believe it has changed since I have left
Former Manager (Former Employee) – Ontario – 9 April 2018
Very demanding work with little to no support from the so-called "support" office. Expectations are very high, which is fine when you have to meet the bottom line because of your owners, however, not at the expense of a person's health and well-being. They do not approve of someone's workplace stress and make them feel very incompetent and because of it you are expendable. The Residents were the main reason they are in business and they really don't care about them; it's all about the money. The front-line staff work incredibly hard and yet get very little incentives to continue to work with Revera because the budget doesn't allow for such "extravagances". Senior leaders want you to be exactly like them and not develop your own leadership style; they will find a way to get rid of you if you disagree with them. Value diversity? No way, not in this company. They have no compassion, no respect and very little integrity. It is definitely a "who you know" environment to get anywhere in this organization. Favouritism is abound. This organization got worse with the new leadership.
The Residents smiles and happiness is your focus everyday, The hard-working staff that become your extended family.
Very long hours, Very demanding and stressful job, on-going rollouts of programs which are usually a disaster and not well thought out, 24/7 responsibilities, No support.
Various Positions (Former Employee) – GTA, ON – 26 March 2018
Revera provides great opportunity to develop a highly rewarding career to its employees. It has been working on culture for some time and is putting forth effort at being a top employer in Canada. They are not quite there yet but show promise for a bright future.
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) – Blenheim, ON – 2 March 2018
Revera was a good opportunity and as we all know about nursing homes can be very hard and fast paced environment however not very considerate of their employees and i was very overworked. they have a lot of great potential though.
Staff (Current Employee) – British Columbia – 20 February 2018
Pls do not put your loved ones in here. They only care about your money. Marketing tours are padded up with exaggerations...I've been with the company for so long...no career growth as they prefer to externally hire ego-driven managers who have no idea what they're doing. Residents are paying too much for services they could find better elsewhere. The only reason this company is still running are the dedicated staff (not managers), whom residents have grown to love and treat as family. That is why our senior residents stay despite the ridiculous yearly increasing rent they pay.
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) – Sault Ste. Marie, ON – 12 February 2018
most enjoyable is clients and their needs to help them is very rewarding and makes me happy. typical day as a psw would be cleaning cooking and daily living duties for clients that cant do certain things for themselves do to their own unique situation. the hardest part is not knowing the hours you will receive weekly.
Dietary Aide (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 23 January 2018
Events and dinning take place games and etc , the main part of revera is to make sure that the residents are satisfied with the food and they’re living space we tried to do everything possible to make sure that it’s successful .
Scheduling Co-ordinator/Home Support Worker (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 22 January 2018
Poor management. Poor culture. Do not listen to employees and rarely follow up on employee concerns about clients. Very poor communication style. Leave a message on the managers voicemail or supervisors and never hear back from them unless its a complaint about them themselves, then they call just to cover their own butts.
This company forgot that we are dealing with people, all about the numbers
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 January 2018
Work life balance is not important to Revera. They will ask you to be out of town on Halloween and miss your kids first day of school for conferences. This company doesn’t train, support or encourage their employees to grow, nor do they acknowledge your accomplishments.
