Great company just get a proper contract

My experience was a really great one, the team I worked with and the agency I worked through was brilliant the only thing would advise that I found out only later (even if it is a temp position) put all the terms & conditions in writing what is expected from you target /per day, hours etc especially if you are dealing with time constraints Because you find yourself sitting in a position we you slaving away and when it comes to getting paid ooops no one said more than stipulated times but thank you for getting us up to date you can also leave.

Pros

Great people, lovely envr

Cons

Sometimes managers that don't reveal their deck of cards from the beginning

Stressful with many changes in a short space of time.

Life healthcare is one of the best companies to work for. If they ever higher you, never ever leave them unless it's a matter of life and death.All important benefits, a stable sustainable job where your well being is of importance.

Pros

Occasional lunches

Cons

Short staffed

Toxic Environment for me.

I enjoyed working in the Unit at the beginning but after only few months, challenges emerged. Tried my utmost best to resolve but had no chance. Basic right of employment are ignored that's what I observed and senior staff was accustomed to it. Highest turnover of nursing staff was a red flag for me but I persevered until I left. Would not recommend it to any person I know. Honestly.

Pros

Appreciative and sweet clients.

Cons

Unprofessional behavior.

very challanging

had a good time learnt a lot. Was exposed to a lot of different cultures and dealt with a wide range of people. Was given the chance to be exposed to different manager skills, and was given a chance to make some decisions re the running of the department. I was able to mentor staff and got involved in staff training.

Enjoyed the company

Found everyone to be team players. Stressful position yet satisfying. More relaxed atmosphere with little micro managing. Found management supportive

Review of Lifehealth Care

I would not like to work for that company again. I loved the staff and doctors who I worked with but did not enjoy the lack of personal skills from management

Much room for improvement

Staff need to be taken care of. Too much of time off and been taken out of leave not by choice. The union does not help much with situations at hand. Banking and flexing is high. Leave balances are low,salary is not competitive.

If they can change the working Monday to Friday system, it's exhausting seriously and you dont get adequate time to attend to personal issues like school kids business and dealing with Municipality related issues.

Pros

Nurses day gifts and year end functions

Cons

Long hours with minimal breaks in between
