If you want to see your family 5 hours a week. This is the job for you
CCA (Current Employee) – Nova Scotia – 6 March 2018
Honestly, used to be a good job. In the last 2 years it has turned into a completely different place. Staff are overworked and underpaid. Your car will take a beating and you'll never get a vacation day unless you're there for 15 years.
Working alone. Clients are great.
Management changes rules every week to what suits them, Mandating constantly(like sometimes twice a week), Always working late and over your daily hours and no travel time
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 23 January 2018
VICTORIA ORDER NURSES; foundational organization, does its best to aid and assist all people of society. Solid work base, security, hardest part of the job working with abusive fellow employees. Management tries its best to keep the non-profit funds incoming. Hard work and endeavors are inputted in team environment. Learned to be flexible, take each day one at a time.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – London, ON – 22 January 2018
I love my clients and the one on one care I get to provide them, but the lack of attention and respect from management is disheartening. The hours can be excessively long and management is always pushing for "more for less". I would like to stay at this job long term because I really believe in the work, but with the current management culture, this is unlikely.
Terribly run company ... nurse managers are constantly quitting ....
Continuing Care Assistant (Former Employee) – ANNAPOLIS Valley – 16 January 2018
Scheduling dept will have u running everywhere. They SAY they will keep u in your own area ... NOt true . Management is horrible and treat the employees like second rate citizens . If you want to be treated like a slave with no appreciation... great place !

This company I would say turned out to be one of the worst I have ever worked for. No continuity of care, clients being added constantly to you by office staff. Almost impossible to get a vacation day. Changes in scheduling hours before you start your shift. If you are looking to loose your nursing license then work here.
LPN (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 12 December 2017
Understaffed as with most health care organizations. Very difficult to get time off through the year let alone the summer months. Some managers are very approachable but others are not and this makes reporting a challenge.
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) – Strathroy, ON – 23 November 2017
Under staffed, begging for you to work your day off. Mostly very good clients who are appreciative of your help. Hardest part is trying to fit everyone in to the time slot they prefer. Some are not so accommodating.
Home Support Worker (Former Employee) – Sarnia, ON – 19 September 2017
Nothing matters more to management then providing the best numbers to upper management. Clients are treated poorly at best, but those funding the program need to be given the right answers from the wrong information.
Registered Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 18 April 2017
No perks, no befits, no security. Never sure if you are going to work that day or week. No guarantees, stressful when you have bills to pay. You get capped at a certain amount of money and only make more if there is a new contract. The job never changes and there is no advancement.
great place to work. Able to arrange day to your own schedule
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Chatham-Kent, ON – 20 February 2017
You receive your list of pt to see daily, you call them and arrange a mutual time for your visit. lots of education available and great resources can work as many hours or days as you would like very flexible work schedule
Registered Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – London, ON – 28 October 2016
I came from a high stressed, over worked and micromanaged environment where i walked on eggshells for years and went home in tears daily. Coming to VON and meeting the staff in London was a breath of fresh air. The manager and CSAs were polite, helpful, and accomodating. Never had an issue with my pay and never felt like I was under-valued. The other nurses where helpful and willing to support each other. I truely felt apart of a team for the first time.
