Dietary Aide (Current Employee) – Penetanguishene, ON – 30 March 2018
You want to work at waypoint? Let me give you a run down of what it's like . Your schedule will consist of about 12 hours in a 2 week pay period . That being only weekends that you work. The work load is so stressful the communication between managers and staff is not even there . You will never receive full time . People have been here for 26 years and are still only getting a maximum of 19 hours. This place is a nightmare to work at. Not to mention your union here does nothing for you even tho your paying 20 bucks a paycheck to them . Being a mental health hospital they create more mental health problems in their staff then any work facility in onatiro .
No hours, only work weekends, no communication with staff from management

Casual Environmental Support Worker, Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Penetanguishene, ON – 25 February 2016
My typical day at work is the cleaning of washrooms and halls and patient rooms. I have learned how to clean a hospital environment and how to work with mental health patients which is both challenging and rewarding. I get along great with my co-workers and upper management team. The hardest part of my job would be frustration because I am only casual and therefore do not get called very often for hours. I work most of my hours with the Catholic School Board. The most enjoyable part of my job is variety because there is always a patient room that has to be addressed and that is always a different situation.

Nurse (Former Employee) – Penetanguishene, ON – 18 September 2015
I have never worked anywhere that treated their employees as poorly as Waypoint. Management tells everyone that they use no restraints or seclusions. Reality is they are used every day. Patients on Bayview Dual Diagnosis are forced to shower and bath and change in front of each other. No support from management if you are injured by a patient. They will make you believe it was your fault! Coworkers were great but it was not worth putting up with management. Have a complaint or suggestion? They will literally wave resumes in your face telling you to do it or they will replace you. Manager locks diapers, toothpaste, deodorant etc in her office so she can limit use. One night the only diapers were locked in her office! No regard from them for staff OR patient wellbeing. Do not send your loved ones there. And my strong recommendation is to not work there. You are just a number to them.

The best part of my tenure with the Waypoint Centre would have to be my co-workers, their interaction, understanding ,respect & support was over the top I could not have worked with a better group of people
