    I have been working at Chartwell Retirement Residences part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Residents are fantastic! Like many healthcare facilities you have a few bad apples, families are hit or miss as well. Love some of my co-workers too!

    Cons

    Low pay for a lot more work than you should have to do in a Retirement home.

    I worked at Chartwell Retirement Residences full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There aren't many. I learned a lot though. I enjoyed some of my coworkers and the residents, but that had nothing to do with the company itself.

    Cons

    Low pay, no appreciation or recognition for hard work, bad management, high turnover, high tolerance for unsafe and irresponsible care of residents (the things I saw were ridiculous). I frequently informed management of employees that were not fit for resident care (neglect, complete lack of nursing knowledge etc) and nothing was done.

    I have been working at Chartwell Retirement Residences full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Full time Employees get every second weekend off although they prefer to have more part time staff. Working with seniors is a really nice and rewarding thing.

    Cons

    Employees get horrible raises, bad benefits and are expected to pull a work load much to heavy for the low pay. The company prefers to hire unqualified workers to look after residents so they don't have to pay them as much.
