    Unpleasant experience, rude head office managers.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWorking with seniors is nice.

    ConsManagement doesn't care about staff or residents, only profits. Communication is very poor and you never feel valued . Take a pass on this company if you can.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagers ( from Toronto) are moody and volatile. More thoughtful treatment of staff would help with employee morale and retention.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disappointing

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsCommunities have some great staff, and most do care about the residents.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your Toronto head office it's not good...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Trouble at Quinte Gardens

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe residents of Quinte Gardens are mostly enjoyable to work for.

    ConsAmica recently acquired Quinte Gardens for 70 million and is having a great deal of difficulty managing this overly large and unprofitable retirement home. Amica is ldesperately looking for ways to turn this white elephant around. So far, all they've been able to do is lower the rents, fire staff and attempt to cut costs. Unfortunately, the building is getting old and requires a mayor refurbishing which will cost lots of money which they don't have. Amica has resorted to firing most of the managers and supervisors - and a lot of employees have quit due to stress & to pro-actively avoid getting fired. Think twice before joining this company, no matter how hard you work you may find yourself paying for Amica's purchasing mistake.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate should examine their decision to purchase Quinte Gardens. Quinte Gardens is physically too large and the hallways too vast for the age of the average resident ( 90 years old). The pricing ( which was recently lowered) is still to high for the economically depressed Quinte area. Amica should removing the lock-down ward on the second floor as they do not have the staff or expertise to manage Alzheimer and behavioural issues.
