Program Manager (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 3 December 2017
Used to be about helping Winnipeg’s most in need, now about rebuilding the shattered career of the current corrupt Executive Director. Constant abuse and undermining of staff have turned a once rewarding and stable career choice into an extremely toxic and unpredictable work environment.
intriguing work environment associated with other social services within the community
Addictions Intake Service Worker (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 29 May 2017
I loved my job working for the Main Street Project for the last 3 years, my time working here has been extremely productive and educational. Working with approximately 90% of an aboriginal community and culture has been comforting and informative. Management tends to restructure often and has very little communication with their staff. I have found a lot of micromanaging within the organization and it has given most staff a bad taste of the kind of work we do as employees seeking more within the field. I have grown lots of relationships with staff and clientele and am very appreciative to have met these individuals throughout my time here.
Good environment with great benefits. Staff are very friendly, pay is great and job security is high. You can see that you are directly meeting people's needs as one of the only last resort that they have which brings a sense of self satisfaction and accomplishment
Advocating with clients on a daily basis & and using crisis intervention, interpersonal and communication skills networking with other agencies. Co-workers work as a team and hardest part of the job was losing a client due to poor health or violence.Most enjoyable part of job was the appreciation by the clients for all your endeavors working for them.
