Not treated with respect
Personal Support Worker (Homecare) (Current Employee) –  Barrie, ON25 April 2018
The only time you are treated well is when they want something. When you ask a simple question from the office you have to know you will wait at least a week and the general response from the coordinator is "ok"

Dont be mistaken this is a profit company
Psw full time . With a better agency parttime (Current Employee) –  Ottawa9 March 2018
Low wages . Poor management. Employee association instead of union . No paid benefits employee pays for them . No continuity in care . This company is the true definition of slavery. Schedulers try their best but have no clue what it's like to be front line staff and don't seem to care . This company makes money off government funds that should go to front line staff .
Pros
Cant think of any
Cons
Too many to list .

Don't expect a raise, ever
PSW (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON24 February 2018
Be careful if joining as a PSW. You have to use your own car, without compensation. At $16.50/hr, you will likely make less than $14.00 after the car expenses. Each .10/litre gas increase means you lose about $.50/hr. No raises in years; it is unlikely we will get one anytime soon. No advancement. No extra training. No acknowledgment for a job well done. No letter of recommendation, should you decide to leave.

On the other hand, it is fun working with clients. You are helping people in a direct way. It sure beats working at other minimum wage jobs. Easy work. You feel like you had an impact, brightening someones day. It is a rare job indeed that you are paid to be nice, not manipulative.
Pros
the clients, some autonomy, somewhat flexible
Cons
Below minimum wage after car costs are factored in

Lack of Communication Overload of work
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Whitby, ON4 February 2018
The supervisors don't communicate effectively with you or respond to emails. Coordinators just put clients on without looking at your schedule. Overlap your clients. Too many books off and the supervisors let it happen without asking why. Coordinators are bossy, rude and bully the workers to take calls.
Pros
Learn something new everyday
Cons
Too many book offs, low pay, no apprecation about what we do.

Very poor staff appreciation.
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Barrie, ON5 January 2018
As psw you can be full time but casual/part time staff with less flexible availability and poor attendance records get more hours. Supervisor changeover very high. No raises. HSW get close to same rate as PSW who had to go to college for 6mths to year. Clients can be canceled with no notice and no pay even when you are enroute. Ask for time off and they can require up to 4 months notice. Supervisors do not respond to issues on regular basis.

On the upside they have some fabulous very dedicated caring staff despite work conditions.
Pros
Some very awesome caring caregivers
Cons
Irregular schedules and pay

Loved my work but despise this company. Nothing saintly about St. Elizabeth
RN (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 December 2017
The pay is the worst, the benefits aren't very good, my schedule was almost cruel. No life! Only company to pay half hour visits when the LHIN pays them an hour. StE pockets what should be going to the nurse. You get ripped off on mileage and expenses. They are out to make money on the backs of the nurse. High turnover and many I met there weren't very good at their jobs. The most enjoyable part of the job was the day I quit. Lots of better HC companies out there.
Pros
never found any
Cons
no respect for experience, terrible wages, benefits

Worst company i worked for
Community clinic nurse (Former Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON30 November 2017
This company is more interested in cash flow rather than patient care. I worked at the clinic and it was a disaster. They only provide 20 min to see pt, treat, document and make next appointment which is never enough. On top of that they would double book so 2 people show up at once. As a result you are always behind, rushing to get things done. Very easy to make a mistake and lose your licence in that setting.
Cons
Unrealistic expectations
