Great team leaders
Easy to work for and never discriminate your work. The work is rewarding. I would recommend this place to anyone. Although, I did refer some to apply but didn't get any call .

Everyday was different at Cheo. I was working on the Mental health unit and not one day was the same depending on the patients needs. I've learned to be more patient than I already am and that I leave work at work and not take it home with me. The hardest part of the job was wanting to do so much more for the kids but there is only so much you can do. That being said, all in all the best part of this job is when the patients were having good days and getting better. I knew the team had made a difference.

-I planned and taught art workshops once a week
-I learned a great deal about different types of mental illness and how to offer appropriate coping tools to the clients through the given workshops held by facilitators.

-management was on point and supportive of mine and the clients' needs

-workplace culture was enthusiastic and energetic

-the hardest part of the job was to see how much some clients suffered, but

-the most enjoyable part was to see those same clients thrive throughout the length of the program

Great place to learn new skills as an RN. Once you reach a certain level there is not much opportunity for RNs for advanced positions. Hard to get a full-time position and must pass a bilingualism test before hiring.
Pros
Unionized environment
Cons
Mandatory bilingualism

A typical day at work consisted of preparing and organizing the classroom before the kids arrival. Play with the kids before table session, recesses, gym/outside, lunch time, then another table session, followed by other classroom activities such as circle time or crafts.
