    Approves of CEO

    I worked at HC-One full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Made a lot of friends here, loved everybody I worked with & it was very rewarding, I would work here again if it wasn’t so time consuming & busy. A lot of on the job training, chances to move up in your career. I learnt a lot here that I haven’t had the chance to do anywhere else. They do care & will listen to your problems but there is a lot of gossiping so you have to be careful.

    Cons

    You do a lot of work by yourself.... it’s heavy & hard. They expect you to be the cleaner, waitress, chef, receptionist & health care assistant. No help from the senior care assistant or managers. you’re expected to do so much in 1 day which resulted in not even a 5 minute break. It does burn you out
