    I have been working at Good Samaritan Society Canada full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love the people I work for to help and some of the people I work with. They give you the experience you need and they will even put you through the CNA classes.

    Cons

    The people who have been there for a long time walk around the place like they own it and don't feel they have help you or anyone for that matter. They take extra time on their breaks when there's a lot going on and then sit and chart for another however long after that ungodly long break. Then when you bring it up to management nothing happens. There is no teamwork. When you need a shift covered good luck getting anyone to help you out! There's a lot of gossip at this place too so don't make one wrong move or you will be the new subject of discussion.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter how long someone had been there, they're not better than someone who works there too. More experience, probably. Better, probably not. Also when you say you will do something actually follow through and do it.

    I worked at Good Samaritan Society Canada full-time

    Pros

    There were some great employees who cared about their jobs- before the mass layoffs.

    Cons

    No job stability -would never recommend a friend or family to work there. Mass layoffs of many long term staff done without respect or dignity. With new CEO a change of culture with no respect for employees and a new culture of fear for ones job. Only way your job is safe is if you are buddy's with the CEO.

    Advice to Management

    If you cut departments and staff so deeply something has got to give. Show some respect for the employees who are left instead of instilling a culture of fear. If you continue to create a bad reputation for the company you are going to be left without qualified staff.
