      Love the residents but coworkers and management lead to toxic workplace environment

      Jul 16, 2021 - Psw Personal Support Worker

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Residents are amazing, good pay, hours were ok (sometimes not enough shifts available)

      Cons

      There were really great coworkers but then there were coworkers that were incredibly diminutive, disrespectful, rude and caused a lot of drama between employees with their constant need to gossip about other coworkers and make the job difficult for those around them (the feeling of being judged, walking on eggshells and forcing myself to keep quiet was a constant when having to work with these employees). Management are all friends with each other and the select few psws that kept causing issues for the other psws (received special treatment from management, when multiple issues were brought up about them over the years, management would let it slide most of the time). Management also would not communicate with employees on whether complaints/situations that were brought up were addressed (extreme lack of communication). I was warned by many psws to be wary of management and those select psws and I have to say that these warnings had firm reasoning behind them. Eventually quit because the toxic environment really surpassed the pros of the job and I would rather work elsewhere for lower pay than keep dreading my next shift and worrying about who I'll end up having to work with (or rather, work around).

      Arbutus Longterm Care; Executive Director-Dean Malone-Worst ever!!

      Apr 16, 2021 - Nursing

      Pros

      Just working there because we doesn’t have that much choice. Only one facility is allowed this covid season. Or else almost everyone will be gone.

      Cons

      Have you ever work in a care home facility where as a staff, you have to share washroom with the residents? and Dean just called you a “guest” in their home. We, in the nursing department are the reason they are still alive and well taken care of. Dean change the outside appearance of the home like changing old chairs with new one, got rid of real plants and replace it with plastic ones to make it looks like more “alive” or something when he can’t even fix the washrooms of the resident where most of it are runny that cause flooding even beds and railing that’s already falling apart. In some facilities, CCTV are use for residents safety like only hallways and activity rooms have cameras. In Arbutus, every corner have cameras and staffs doesn’t even have access. We have a little monitor for unimportant areas of the facility so it doesn’t help us at all when it comes to residents. What they are doing is to monitor the staffs. even putting cameras on locker room in the first place. They have to take it off due to complain of privacy. Overall, Dean is very manipulative, big ego, his way or the highway type of a person. If he doesn’t like you, you will know.
