Catholic Social Services Employee Review

Literally run for your money

If you are looking to run for your money, be burnt out, life and work becomes unbalanced, receive little to no communication, not be heard, concerns mean nothing, no rush to bring you back to work even though you display being ready, they do not provide accommodations for employees despite saying so in their return to work package, everything that is highlighted in their mission, vision and values is not held true for employees. Despite the poor quality treatment from administrative and managerial employees, the treatment from direct coworkers and supervisors are fantastic and make it worth showing up to the office. The clients also make work great as well.


Great clients, great coworkers, great bosses...


Lead down a path of being overworked and burnt out, lack of communication, poor treatment from Administration and managers, left unheard....

Productive and learning work place.

Working at Catholic social services is good. You work and you learn. Benefits were fair. Staff and the management are flexible and respectful. Sometimes management is too considerate to the workers that should be suspended or need disciplinary actions. They hire staff that not fit on the position.,specifically front liners.

Poor treatment for frontliners

Will never work here again. Lady Liberty should be here. Higher management in main are okay but not Red Deer Central Region. They have privilege staff.


Free coffee/tea


Hard to find coverage when calling in sick, you have to have a friend within the the admin to easily get a job with no problem, you have to work extra job duties beyond your job description, no other language spoken in the premises, no breaks, no longer vacation as when you return after 6 weeks you will be transfered, medication administration is critical med errors are major trouble, and a lot more

Expect to get sick from stress

I worked here for a period of time and every day it was stress from management. We the staff were blamed for every little behavior, nothing we did was ever enough and every moment is micromanaged. An individual can be actually physically abusing you and the staff will be chastised. The staff don't matter here, they will tell you that you do but it's simply not true
