Employment Assistant (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 13 May 2017
Windsor Women Working With Immigrant Women, or W5 for short, is an overall great place to work. The staff are wonderful with few exception and the work that is done there is important and fulfilling. My only issue with this organization is that the different departments have the tendency to annex themselves to some degree, which occasionally makes interdepartmental actions somewhat difficult at times. But this issue is an uncommon one and is more of a nuisance than anything else. Otherwise, this facility employs people of many different backgrounds and is very good to all of its employees.

Social Worker (Former Employee) – Windsor, Ontario, Canada – 3 March 2013
I worked with this organization because I was interested helping immigrants as well as people with difficult situations in finding housing, placement of their children in school or having problems with their case workers from the city council. During my work I learned to be on the alert and open to help clients. I worked successfully with co-workers. The hardest part of my job was when dealing with a client who has language problems. I enjoyed working and helping people especially those involving counseling.
