Pretty much it’s a fixed job with fixed salary and if u see that co workers are pretty old and they start and retire there , so no room for advancement as no openings until someone quit. Union is a big support and always helps,Nothing much to say.just do your work properly as they expect 200% more from you. Very fast paced.

The whole aspect of the health care aide job is stressful. You have to have great time management skills. Work smarter not harder means, utilizing the tools you have, instead of your body. Overall great place to work. People listen, staff is like a family.

Abusive work environment. Incompetent management. Neglected residents (poor pain and agitation management, causing suffering and discourse). Insubordinate HCAs. Substance abuse issues among residents. Uncontrolled/undisciplined abusive residents and family members, enabled by management. Inexperienced supervisors. This facility hires related staff with severe language barriers, resulting in excessive med errors
Cons
Poor benefits with low dental allowances and no vision coverage. Poor union assistance

Must be adaptable and thick-skinned. The most fulfilling part is the residents but terrible management and negative coworkers/ workplace culture makes it hard to go to work

Good job Place for security and opportunity for advancement but poor management in some of the sites. It is also a good place to start your career in Health Care as a Nurse or Nursing Attendant.

working casual not enough time,rude staff, favoritism like if you are friend of the scheduler , nurses they will call you some regular staff always had overtime. LPN also rude to staff instead of treating them nicely. Management don't follow rules they dont educate their staff about their rights. Poor communication, poor management, bossy people treat staff like a garbage. NO STAFF ROOM!

This is a good place to work. Supervisor and Managers are supportive in some other ways. The facility is somewhat old but the Top Management is working hard to improve the structures.

Work hard, busy place to be. Staff expect everyone to do your best.. We are care givers for a reason... Because we care and want to help the ones that require help. Either in small ways or big.

Typical day at work is assisting with personal care, breakfast and meds. Also going out into the community with clients. It is a great company to work for, but wages and staffing are not and miss.

Management yells at staff consistently. Poor management. Senior nurse gossips behind everyone’s back and pretends to be their friend. Lots of back stabbing qualities here. You are nothing to them!

The residents are amazing anyone would happy to take care of them the job itself is a great job it’s been poorly managed for far to long and staff are not recognized properly for the job they do well constantly short and not to often the managers step in the help although they say they give resident focused care this is not true most staff do try and end up way to overwhelmed with all the other jobs put upon you
