Service Coordinator/Administrator (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON and Oakville, ON and Milton, ON – 20 November 2018
Red Cross -Transportation Department Work experience was good and educative. It gave me the opportunity of exercising my people skills behind the desk as well as in person. I was able to build relationships with the volunteers and staff and complement the work/duties as per the requirement. My experience of starting as a Passenger Assistant helped me to understand the interpersonal skills required to deal with the clientele and staff. This further helped me when I was offered the post of a Service Coordinator/Administrator. Red Cross service to the community is very honorable and working in an environment with a mindset focused on humanitarian needs is very Nobel and Humbling. Serving the community has always been my goal, and being part of making society better was very fulfilling. Working at Red Cross has been very purposeful and has taught me many life skills. These teachings always make one a better person.

A great place to work with amazing people. The environment is fun and casual but at the the same time all business. The managers are great and willing to listen to any problems or questions someone might have, everything from time availability to career advancement, there is always someone willing to speak with you.

Red Cross Scheduler (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 12 July 2018
My day includes direct contact with senior based clients, scheduling and overseeing aprox. 100 volunteers. I have had huge success in modifying my job processes and being a productive team player and have learned to advance my communications and great ability to interact with both client and team partners. Hardest part of my job is the scheduling usually during summer months since many volunteers are away for holidays but on the most part, my job is very enjoyable especially knowing that I am helping and assisting our most vulnerable in our community.
On Call clinical supervisor (Former Employee) – Cornwall, ON – 16 April 2018
This company calls themselves "humanitarian" but the way they treated there employees in the home care field is out right DISGUSTING. Work hours from 1630 to 0830 M to F with only 6 hours pay a night. And no thanks no appreciation.
Good benefits and time off...
Back stabbing and non trusting. Always blamming employees for there mistakes.

Assistant Manager Transportation Project (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 7 February 2018
The organization seems to undergo a major restructuring every 5 years. . Work spaces are comfortable and accommodating. The work environment is highly respectful and encourages continues improvement. Hardest part of the job was dealing with bureaucracy and funding. Best part of the job was feeling you are helping where it is needed most.
