Community & Social Service
Good people, but over worked. management have no training to lead and a few are unqualified to provide therapy. and rule with an authoritarian methodology with staff and clients. Everyone is out for themselves, real phony atmosphere. Place stinks of sewage all the time and management makes staff put 60-90 day stays rather the client is in need or not. Very busy, stressful place to work. Go though staff a lot.
the company seems does not have annual performance reviews and so hard to get pay raise. as a result, the clinics and pharmacies are always short staff.
I worked at the Collingwood Ontario Addiction Treatment Centre. The 1 nurse I worked with was a bully & quite agressive. She talked behind everyones back & to clients about her coworkers. The ft support staff was very 2 faced as well, although she was not a bully, she would talk to clients about her co workers & leave notes every day of what I should do and what to leave for her. She was a control freak & I was continually bossed around by she and the 1 nurse. This nurse and support staff had a client living with them and gave her preferential treatment at the clinic. They even allowed her to go in the nursing area and support staff area, which should not have been aloud. Needless to say I was very unhappy at this job & had 0 support when I reached out for help so I felt I had no choice but to quite...for my own safety. The job itself was great and I enjoyed helping the clients from my home town.
Working as a nurse you have a very fast paced atmosphere and can be subject to ridicule from clients as well as verbal abuse. The hours look good as you only work during the day, but be prepared to work many days in a row due to poor staffing and making you feel responsible if you are sick. The management does not value loyalty of long standing employees and would much rather replace you than keep senior staff. Finally even after going through all the correct channels, giving more than significant notice to leaving the company they will make you feel bad when 3 weeks have gone by and they have not yet found a replacement and do not have anyone to dispense meds. They will then report that you abandoned your patients even though you gave 3 weeks notice that you would no longer be working for them after over 10 years of service.
You will most likely have great coworkers but management will be bad. Any employee can be replaced instead of keeping loyal ones who are the most senior and are essentially acting as assistant managers. Unless you are very familiar with the workflow it can be a high stress demanding job at the least. I left due to how much work was not done and the stress it put on me. And the clear favouritism and little to no support from upper management.
