The child and youth programs I’ve heard are some of the most difficult and best around. I am looking for a challenge and I have heard through this field that they have a few really good supervisors
Answered 22 September 2017
CSS is an extremely toxic environment to work with. Right from day 1 I was provided with no training besides reading the orientation binder, but was then getting in trouble for not knowing the correct way/process of doing things. Supervisors are extremely passive aggressive. If they notice something about your job performance they do not like, rather than bringing it to your attention right away for you to work on, they let those things bottle up until it's a reason to fire you. Many staff are not kept in the loop about activities and events going on, and then get in trouble for not being prepared for those events/activities.

I interviewed for a Youth Worker position in Red Deer and it was a challenging interview but I felt excited about an opportunity to maybe work for them. The two people interviewing were so kind and really put me at ease. Both has been at the company for 10 and 15 years and involved in the actual work still which was good to see.

Management would notify co staff to tell someone that they are wanted in the office, management would not communicate with the person directly that she needs to see them
Answered 27 January 2019
If I were to leave the agency it would be due to the utter lack of communication between managers/supervisors and front line staff. Also extremely passive aggressive management that provide no reflective feedback regarding your job performance.

Shift work; typically 7-3, 12-8, 2-10, 3-11, or overnight (11-7). HOWEVER, you are expected to pick up shifts on your days off and work 10 or 12 hour days fairly regularly with no appreciation shown (i.e. good luck getting any days off approved). If you don't agree to working extra days/hours, you are made to feel very ashamed and that your job will be on the line.
