Great people to work for; lots of positive feedback from supervisors.
Home Suppport Worker (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 August 2015
If you like working with people in general, and individuals who are elderly, and / or physically / mentally / emotionally disabled, then this is the type of work you should investigate.

The supervisors are fantastic in that they make a point of providing positive feedback, which encourages you to continue doing good work. By the mere nature of the work, wherein you are working in people's homes, once you demonstrate an ability and affinity for this type of work, you rarely ever see a supervisor.

I loved this type of work, and particularly for this organization.
Pros
Great clients and great supervisors.
Cons
Irregular number of hours depending on how many clients you had at any one time.

Nursing Attendant (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB27 August 2014
I worked here for five years and the management was not behind the worker.
I learned to be guarded with fellow workers.
The most difficult part of the job was to not take your work home with oneself.
Pros
Working with clients one on one.
Cons
Long hours and working with clients one on one.

This NFP is a viable and much needed resource for Calgary.
Director of Corporate Services (Former Employee) –  Calgary, Alberta8 January 2013
As senior management - a typical day included management/staff/project meetings. Actual hands on work (finance & IT) occurred regularly after hours.

The hardest part of the job was becoming part of the team. And the most enjoyable part was getting to know the employees who were very committed to the companies cause.
