Family Development (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 20 February 2017
I really enjoy working for Mcman. The supervisors are helpful and understanding of employees with families. They did a great job training me and gave excellent feedback throughout my first year. I would recommend working at Mcman to anyone.

Team Leader, shared living (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 15 April 2016
Very challenging with co-workers. Individuals with less then average skills working with clients with challenges equals managing chaos.Working with clients, was the only positive side. Management either doesn't see what's happening or in some cases are overwhelmed and choose to not do anything to address problems. Didn't feel appreciated during my short time there. Wasn't worth their while to even talk to me to get more information on why I wanted to resign. I guess in the end they showed who they really are. Would never choose them as an employer ever again.
Co-workers, management, poor training, support sporadic
Family Development Worker (Former Employee) – Drayton Valley, AB – 13 December 2015
I worked at McMan in Drayton Valley as a family support worker. Management was inconsistent, went through three supervisors before finally bringing up the inconsistencies to higher management... Was terminated without just cause after bringing it up. I was expected to be on call for a constantly changing schedule allowing no time to even attend a doctors appointment. I was the only employee, no support. No training and overall... Just a terrible experience.
Unable to schedule anything around work, clients are not priority, badly managed
worker II (Current Employee) – Edmonton – 18 March 2014
During a typical day at work I meet with individuals out in the community to advocate and connect to community as well as teach skills towards independence. I've learned that there are a variety of resources available to individuals with disabilities.
