Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 March 2017
Used to be a great, friendly place to work, although they would string you along with a temp-to-perm contract that never went permanent. But at least the people were nice. There were a lot of management changes though, so anything fun for employees was cancelled - no more Christmas parties, no more get-togethers, no more health benefits, no more flex hours. Now it is a terrible place to work.
inflexible, no benefits, no interest in talent cultivation/retention
Start the day by reviewing Help Desk Tickets and ordering them in importance such as their issue is impacting a Client would be #1. Learned quite a bit in prepping Laptops, Desktops and Servers with Virtualization. Worked with really good co-workers. Hardest part was the travel and work was 13 hours which made my day rather long. Enjoyable part is working with my Users and solving all their problems. Allows them to become more productive.

Work closely with many partners on projects and develop strong relationships. The most enjoyable part of this job was to be part of a very unique initiative to raise awareness about Deaf and hard of hearing consumers and work closely with many partners.
Program Assistant (Contract) (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 August 2013
In my tenure as a contracted employee, CHS has contributed to personal growth and career growth. They are true to their values and culture, and stand by their mission statement in wanting to help those who are deaf, hard of hearing, as well as educate those who have healthy hearing. The management will go above and beyond for their staff and for clients, ensuring everyone is satisfied in their experiences. They are open to listening to new ideas, and want to see the organization continue to change and grow to reflect the times and changes our society makes. This applies for the staff as well.
