Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Check the maintenance book for work for the day. Learn nothing. Management not friendly at all. She never talked to me till she needs something on maintenance and my supervisor is off. Never introduced herself, won’t acknowledge you when you passed each other in the hallway. The hardest part of the job was trying to satisfy the manager. She has her favourites, it’s either your in or out. Most enjoyable was when they want to buy new appliances and then I’ll repair it, but that’s not good enough for her.

Such a nice place to work. Staff all work well together and the residents are all so loving.

I have been employed at The Wellington since Sept 2008. I have learned so much as A PSW. Enjoyed Christmas Bazaars, dancing with the residents at socials being there for residents and families. The staff at The Wellington are all so very nice.

Pros

Benefits, great staff, friendly environment.

Cons

No permanent lines for part time staff.

Hard work pays off

You must work hard in this job, do your best, do not skimp on duties as you are ensuring that retirement residence's quarters are clean. You want to show them that you care about their opinions and respect them and their environment (not a job perspective but a personal one).

Pros

high pay, shifts go by quick

Cons

Difficult work, little time lots of expectations, work alone and difficult to catch on

Fast paced but yet enjoyable Long Term setting

A typical day at work for me was meeting the residents daily needs and using lifts for transfering residents into there wheelchairs, beds, and bath chairs. I have learned new skills such as which lifts to use for which residents to safely transfer residents and plenty more. I would personally say from experience working at The Wellington...the management was excellent. The DOC is very understanding, easy to speak to and reason with and she genuinely cares for the residents as well as the staff. The co-workers at The Wellington are very helpful and everyone is great to work with. I found that the hardest part of the job is meeting the expectations on time even though it is doable and picking up the routine. Once you learn the routine as well as the expectations...the job runs very smoothly. The most enjoyable part of the job that i had experienced personally is giving the residents the quality of life that i feel they deserve. I have to say overall...it's a great learning experience and very enjoyable as well.

Pros

meeting new people and seeing many different personalities

Cons

working with impatient staff
