Dont care about employees or clients
Residential Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON11 May 2018
This place is a joke. Dangerous work environment for the most part. Huge turn around rate, and they dispose of you as soon as there has been a work place incident . Was attacked, and then terminated.
Pros
Might meet some good co-workers
Cons
Everything else

Clients are great, the rest not so much.
Residential Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON18 March 2018
I worked at CWSDS as a residential counsellor. I loved the clients I worked with. I learned a lot about how to beat support individuals with developmental disabilities who also have behavioural issues. CWSDS has so much potential, but needs to be restructured. Management is terrible. Anytime a client had a behaviour when at the centre and upper management was around, they would shut their doors and pretend nothing was happening. Nobody gets fired at this agency and they should. Many staff sleep on the job, go for LONG van rides, smoke weed while at work, choose to do absolutely nothing and they all get away with it. While there are good people that work at CWSDS, there are a lot of people who aren’t there for the clients best interests. It’s a shame because all the good staff leave because there isn’t any incentive to stay.
