Nursing Attendant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 May 2018
My experience was good with we care. The pay rate was good, I appreciated how much the agency cared for the staff and the individual's safety. I enjoyed working one on one with special needs children and the elderly in their homes.
staff meetings and advancement training
they had very few locations, only accessible on a certain part of the city
Continuing Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 26 February 2018
A typical day was taking care of Clients, I learned every day each client was unique, Management was always ready to help , hardest part of the job was making sure clients received the help they needed. and the most enjoyable part was when you walk in the room and the client was happy to see you.
Lead Staff (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 29 January 2018
I learned how to manage a household and multitask really well, understand and also became a leader that staff and management looked up too and spoke highly of. I do whatever is needed to benefit the company.
Unclear policies sometimes but good support and teaching from the agency
Companion/Personal Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 24 January 2018
Company policies were unclear (ie you can't accept anything (food, coffee, gifts) from a client but at Christmas something for under $10 was OK). Yet, at any other time if a client wanted to have a cup of coffee with you (much less than $10), you had to say no as a worker. If the client was a private client you could accept a gift.) I believe this is how it was, but at the time it seemed that the lines were unclear. And strange.
clients needs are matched to the skills of the workers, good support and teaching from the agency or managers
had to sometimes travel from one client to another in a short span of time, at a further distance
Health Care Aide (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 12 January 2018
Coordinators and supervisors have zero regard for confidentiality and are mostly just talking behind your back with fellow colleagues. Too much favouritism and if you’re not an a** kisser you go nowhere and so called a** kissers get away with anything and everything and are mostly the laziest on the job They take it personally when you’re not able to go for a shift they randomly call you for despite not even having a chance to breath from all the hours you’ve been working back to back Overtime pay is a myth and sick days as well You get blame for not reporting something when you did but it was just another lousy coordinators fault for not doing their job and guess what, blame will be on you All in all, lousy management but I got to work with some of the most amazing seniors
Client Services Supervisor (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 7 December 2017
When I worked for We Care, the culture was open, friendly, caring and consistent. Once CBI took over, their morals, ethics, standards became questionable and upper management took an "I don't care attitude", its all about making money, not caring for their office staff/nurses and the hostile/bullying atmosphere that has made an incredibly high staff turnover, and a large amount of "stress leaves" due to incompetent management and HR!
HR not acknowleging harrassing/bullying atmosphere and not dealing with the culprits
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 27 October 2017
Flexible scheduling, positive work culture, Training & Development-Focused. As social beings, we naturally seek support from our peers and seek to belong to a group. Come tough times, the team should come together to deal with whatever problems are out there. This is where a sense of unity is evoked in the team and employees will no longer just feel that they’re working for themselves. They are now working towards something bigger than themselves, and as a team.

I worked with company for almost 1yr. And it started off good just like and company.. And down hill after that, would play around with your schedule, avoid your calls, short on travel pay hours. Pretty much sums up we care
