Worked for that company for 6 years. A union went in just before i went on maternity leave. I had a part time contract with them when I left. The company wants to fight the union so when I changed my availability to work with childcare, they pulled my contract.
I gave them 70 hours of availability for a 50 hour biweekly contract and that wasn't good enough. I was told to work work straight evening or start at 6am daily.
There is no consideration for work/family life balance. They constantly add clients on without asking and always call and harass you to work out if your availability . Management has no respect for employees and always act like they're better than you, instead of being part of a team.
For a company that is claims to be about compassion and care, they certainly don't act that way to clients or employees.
Wonderful group of dedicated professionals who are always looking for new and innovative ways to provide the best care possible. Supportive and respectful of their staff and they offer continuous education and training to improve skills.
Management supports your ideas for growth and service improvement.
Interview completely different to the actual requirements. almost like, they will say whatever they need to, to convince you to come aboard. A good place for beginners to get their feet wet but I would not recommend long term, but if a psw has any experience at all they would soon discover that the company is for themselves. Was scheduled in one area them moved to another, after refusing a particular client they got put on my schedule anyway with no regard to what my personal tolerance was. It didn't matter to them a name on a sheet to maximize the company's benefit for themselves. When asked to make changes was denied so i resigned. They say they are appreciative of staff but only lip service. One would need to drive to office location to pick up p.p.e no assigned area where one works to pick up, so that means one has drive to pick up at own cost. If local not a problem but if living rurally its a challenge. Minimal hrs.They will call for you to go out for 1hour a day. Not really worth starting the car for only one hour work. You can see their adds all over the place but they barely have enough clients to support the staff they have. They also have phones that they use but you must also use your own phone as they are to cheap to pay full access for their phone. Should you go over the limited data amount there are consquences, or should you accidently break the phone you would be required to pay the 900.00 to replace. A lot of time spent on the phones for charting, more time then actually spent with client. SAD very sad. So if you want to get jerked around then Bayshore ismais... the place for you.menos
