Sue’s Seniors Care

In 2005 Sue Williams saw an urgent need among the seniors in the Oceanside area for professional, dependable in-home care on a 24 hour 7 days a week basis and Sue’s Seniors Care was born. Their mission: To provide support to those in need, so that they maintain independence and dignity in the comfort and security of their own homes.

Having over 40 years experience as a long term care attendant specializing with seniors has allowed Sue to assemble a team of likeminded, dedicated professionals who share her belief that our aging population deserves nothing less than the highest quality of care.

Every individual client’s care is established by an initial in-depth consultation welcoming family or other caregivers. Sue and her team recognize that things change and the client’s needs are monitored and care adjusted as their situation evolves. Providing everything from housekeeping and meal preparation, to personal care and nursing care gives them the breadth to do just that, quickly and efficiently.

Ask Sue and she’ll tell you that she considers herself extremely fortunate. Her favourite quote from Theodore Isaac Rubin says it all: “Using ourselves well is the essence of happiness, and when we use ourselves well for the benefit of another human being, there is no greater satisfaction.”

NorthWest FabWorks – January 2021

 

Northwest Fabworks
1390 Springhill Road Parksville BC V9P 2B8
www.northwestfab.com

Tell us about your business/organization and what makes you stand out as an employer?

We design and manufacture performance off-road drivetrain and four-by-four parts. However, Northwest Fab has really grown immensely over the past years and we’ve expanded into engineering and contract manufacturing as well.  The journey has not been easy and we’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way, but each of those has taught us some pretty valuable lessons. Prioritizing a process of reviewing, learning, and becoming better at what we do is built into how we operate. That doesn’t mean going through the motions or playing the minimum compliance game. It genuinely means that we take the time to train and become better at our trades, at being colleagues, and most of all at being members of our communities. We haven’t always thought this way and it has been a steep learning curve. But it’s the lessons learned along the way and the results we’ve experienced that reinforce our constant drive to become better. Our work is difficult and not for everybody – but I think the attitude towards learning and succeeding together makes us stand out as an employer.

How many employees do you have?

Between 15 and 20 employees depending on how many co-op engineering students are with us throughout the year.

What do you look for in a new employee?

A positive attitude. When the days get long and difficult – which they inevitably do – you need folks with a passion and appreciation for what they’re doing. Quality truly happens beyond management systems and control checks; it happens when the culture of an organization is built around a love and passion for the work its doing. We genuinely love our work making “things”. And it’s important to us that new employees be able to find a passion in “creating” as well.

 What advice would you give someone who wants to work for your organization?

Success in our organization really depends on personal habits and a drive to learn. Our work is intensive in prescribed government standards as well as a need to be diligent with million dollar machines. Technical skills can only take someone so far – at the end of the day the job requires positive habits and behaviors surrounding health, wellness, and attention to detail.

Do you anticipate hiring in the next 6 months? If so, for what types of positions?

We are always accepting resumes from qualified machinists as well as people interested in machinist apprenticeships. Additionally, we hire around 20 engineering/applied science co-op positions throughout the year and always welcome applicants.

What is the best way for someone to apply if they are interested in working for your business?

Reach out to us at jobs@northwestfabworks.com

 

Paramount Recreation- December 2020

Paramount Recreation

Tell us about your business/organization and what makes you stand out as an employer?

We are a pool and spa retail store that is a little different from the norm. Everything begins and ends with product quality and customer service, and our team has stood by us year after year. In general, our staff team has had the same members on it for quite some time, with almost all members on our team nearing the 5 year mark with us, and some have been with us even longer.  This is a huge feat for a small retail business in a heavily service based industry. We tend to hire members of the community who are eager to learn more about sales and service and those that thrive on working collaboratively with each other. We offer a very competitive commission and have successfully supported our team members in developing valuable life skills that are worthwhile outside of the workplace, specifically; negotiation skills, sales training, and product knowledge. We allow our team members the opportunity to travel and take pride in offering generous bonuses for exceptional performance.

How many employees do you have?

We are a team of 7 consisting of 2 owners and 5 employees.

What do you look for in a new employee?

We are looking for exceptional customer service skills, problem solving abilities, a high amount of organizational skills, a positive attitude and a willingness to learn all aspects of the business; even if they are working in a specific role.

What advice would you give someone who wants to work for your organization?

We function as one organism and the secret to our success is communicating with each other often in an effort to offer the best customer experience possible. A small business like ours has faced many challenges due to COVID-19, with supply chain issues being at the forefront. All members of our team are required to work together to ensure customers are feeling supported, and to ensure that we are offering the best customer service at all times.

Do you anticipate hiring in the next 6 months? If so, for what types of positions?

We are in need of a qualified service technician right away, along with a customer service specialist with exceptional organizational and communication skills.

What is the best way for someone to apply if they are interested in working for your business?

Please submit your cover letter and resume to: gauri@paramountrec.com and we will contact you so we can meet in person keeping all COVID-19 guidelines in mind.
