    Pros

    I have a supportive manager and Director. Interested in hearing from front line team members, we always get included in decision making when changing things for the better. Lots of opportunity to grow within the company and they genuinely want to see you move up and help you get there. It's also a lot of fun and we laugh everyday. Lots of recognition given to team members. Really care for community members.

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons... maybe benefits could be a little better...

    Always looking to improve on culture and honour the values. Great place to work and learn and grow. A fun place to be.

    There really are no cons - this is a great place to work and grow your skills because they treat you as an individual.

    Pros

    The people served. Interesting benefit program to help staff appriciate and support each other.

    Cons

    Management dismissive of employee needs. Overworked staff with little support to give us all we need to do best job for the seniors we serve. Short on staff, turnover issues, lack of supplies, no overlap of shifts. Show up 5 minutes early, go go go, then work you right up till the end of shift, and then some. Hard to get full-time. They don't like to pay benefits yet like to give you the hours, when it suits them.

    Pros

    Laid back staff. People are generallaly friendly. The facility is beutiful and there are different departments that you can move around to. Its a good place to learn some customer service skills and how to multitask.

    Cons

    A lot of sexual jokes. Not a fan of those types of conversations. As with all work places there is some drama and there seeemed to be something new everyweek. Stay clear of the gossip. Pay was on the low side but it might have improved now.
