Meaningful and Supportive
Program Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Minden, ON21 June 2016
The KOC is a phenomenal place to work. The front - line staff and management are all great to work with. The environment is fun, safe, and supportive, and at the end of the day, you feel like you have done meaningful and purposeful work, and are appreciated for it. The other reviews do not represent the current culture at the KOC, apply and see for yourself.

If you are young and like everyone else, you may advance.
Intensive Behavioural Therapist (Former Employee) –  York Region, Ontario11 October 2012
Cookie cutter approach. Need to look the same, think the same and take orders without questioning the process.

They hire on contract with a slight chance of advancement for permanent position.
Pros
if hired permanently, good benefits. typical wages for the industry.
Cons
preference goes to part-time university students with a hight turn over.

Lots of differences of opinions amongst co-workers as well as between front line staff and management pertaining to treatment approaches
Youth Counsellor (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON9 August 2012
I found the constant power struggles and differences of opinions amongst staff to be emotionally draining and mentally taxing. I did, however, enjoy providing meaningful support to a number of youth during my tenure there.
