A frustrating work environment
Child and Youth Worker (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 September 2015
It was not a very supportive environment to work in. There was no praise or direction when dealing with clients. Promotions were more based on the friendship with management rather than actual qualifications, I found my co-workers did not function as a team and were more interested in partying with the manager, a functional alcoholic, than focusing on the well being of the clients or became enmeshed with clients and created an unsafe working environment at times.
It was the best paying job for Child Youth Workers
You often ended having to do double shifts because co-workers calling in on short notice
