Very Disorganized . Could use better Structure
Support Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB15 March 2017
The Hours are great, but the pay does not reflect the work that is put into it. I was also told that the annual rate was frozen. Also, it seems to be hard to advance in this type of organization. This position doesn't even require a degree so if you are looking for work with a degree you might want to look elsewhere. Lots of staff work there too, so it is hard to know everyone's names and who they are. Days are honestly not set in stone. The schedule could change on you last minute and you wouldn't even notice or be told until you check it. Overall, their intentions are good as an organization and their purpose, but the nature of the job is tough when they have so many individuals and little staff to do the work.
Pros
Location is relevant, teamwork is awesome here, good hours
Cons
Lack of Organization, short staffed, hard to advance, Bad Supervisor, pay could be better

Productive with a wide range of activities for individuals that complement real activities in real life.
RELIEF WORKER (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB25 October 2012
Welcoming clients,taking their hats,coats & mittens off & hanging them,securing their lunches,reading their communication books, offering them tea, toileting them,carrying out various activities ,assisting clients with lunch,writing in the communication book,wearing warm clothing, helping them to depart with all their staff, documenting electronically and reporting.
Learned that it is important to give clients endependence of making their own choices.
Management-supervisors had conflicting ideas on issues related to clients.
Co-workers had a high degree of team spirit.
Being given clients with different needs for the day e.g.one may want to stay indoors and need close supervision while the other one wants to go out when the worker is instructed not to go out was hard.
Assisting clients to achieve their goals was the most enjoyable part.
Pros
previous training, experience in special needs education and fluency in english was an advantage.
Cons
failure of the supervisor to be realistic on a given situation.
