    I have been working at Chartwell Retirement Residences full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Canada's largest (and homegrown) retirement operator. Major latitude to grow and develop a long term career for people who are keen to learn and work hard. Locations all across BC, AB, ON and PQ, in a wide range of skill-sets, from entry level to exec. I have been fortunate to have started at the mid-manager level, was selected to train as a leader with internal development and mentorship programs, and was promoted into upper management, and have worked at multiple sites.

    Cons

    Corporate level opportunities are primarily situated at head office in Ontario, with a limited number in the West.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Chartwell Retirement Residences (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    Interviewer clearly does not interview often. Allotted 45 minutes for whole interview and didn't tell me until I was 20 min past that. I had questions she couldn't answer and didn't want too. Knew it wasn't a fit three minutes in. Red flag was when she told me that the culture is very people oriented and it didn't matter if you met your occupancy and revenue goals if people don't like you you will be fired.

    So you want me to do the hard work and if an employee is upset about it, I will get fired? This is not a culture I want to be a part of.
