Hi everyone, I have finally been contacted by a company in Alberta re: a LPN position. I wanted to know if anyone has dealt with The Bethany Group and can tell me about Camrose Alberta... I have read the tourist website but... Read More

    Ok so now I have a predicament...

    So i accepted another position in ontario for a part time position because alberta said no to relocation costs...

    Well tonight they finally got a hold of me after trying for days but i was studying... and i had sent them an email telling them i accepted another position...

    well tonight they offered me relocation assistance and said they would give us a room at one of the homes for my daughter and I so can start working and not have to worry about spending $$$ on a hotel to start...

    So now i am so perplexed... It is a FT position with benefits...

    After they said no to relocation on the phone interview i chopped alberta out of running for a couple of yrs until i got more $$$ saved for relocation... now they are back in and i don't know what to think...

    As an LPN not many places offer relocation... and they want to support my finishing my degree at Athabasca.....

    Man this is sooo hard... i have until monday to give her an answer....

    It sounds like a great opportunity for you, Trish. If they'll put all that in writing, it would be awfully hard to turn down. You don't owe anything to the employer in Ontario, since you haven't actually started the job. They'll have someone else on their list they can put into that part time position. Put on a pot of coffee and prepare for a sleepless night...

    Jan.. thanks... i clenched my jaw the entire night while i was asleep...

    i am taking the weekend to evaluate... i need to find pet friendly places to live.. and alberta's rental board is different and states you can deny someone if they have pets while in ontario you can't if they aren't destructive or agressive...

    I have been looking on kijiji for rentals in camrose but not to many.... i am going to have to figure the outskirts so i can see whats around... its a big decision..

    Sometimes the devil you know truly is better than the one you don't. But if you wait for everything to be absolutely perfect, you'll be waiting a LONG time. And even when you think you've got everything worked out, something (or many things, as I found out the hard way) will fall apart at the last minute. Finding a place to rent in a small town is always difficult. But on the other hand, small-town people tend to be more willing to bend than people in cities; they know there's not a lot of options for people and will sometimes make exceptions.

    Jan - thanks for the link... i emailed that one with no response... I need more friends all over the provinces... so i can move.. .somedays i wished i lived in an RV...

    I have called a couple of places... do you know of any towns outside of camrose that would be close.. maps are not really any help.. camrose looks like a city in the middle of nowhere.. which i am used to.. LOL

    Wetaskiwin is about as far from Camrose as I am from my job in Edmonton... a 30 minute drive. It's bigger than Camrose and might be an alternative for you. There are a couple of rentals there that might suit you. http://www.rentboard.ca/rentals/index.aspx?locid=603 The rest of the communities around Camrose are small farming communities.

    If you can get the guarantee in writing, I would move to AB. ON is not very lucrative in terms of jobs, and AB pays better. I am originally from ON and I moved to AB. The best move I could have made.

    I have friends that are still working casual in ON a year and a half after graduation. Another couple of friends accepted what they thought was a great opportunity at a downtown TO hospital, and there are talks of more layoffs looming for some people. Good luck with your decision.

    Hey Trish
    I also have interviewed with them. Would like to message you but I just joined so it won't allow me. Have you made up your mind if your going to take it or not? Email me albertalpn@gmail.com. I am unsure at this point. They are requesting references etc. It IS full time.... but it's quite a ways from where I live now. Not as far as you at least I am in Alberta. Was your phone interview very long mine was not long at all. Anyways email me if you'd like.

    The phone interview wasn't long at all. I decided against it. Mainly because there is not much housing down there that would be suitable for my family.. I decided to stay in ON for now.
