Rewarding, fun, meaningful role
serving meals, interacting with clients who are struggling with various barriers, low barrier, harm reduction provided at coast helps lower the risks of deaths and the stigma that comes along with everything else, employees at various sites are given the chance to run programs that let them use their unique, individual skills.

management at Coast Mental Health is supportive, understanding, and provides opportunities for growth.


every job has their stressful moments, but working for Coast you have the support of your team and the background knowledge to overcome the stressors of the day/ situation.


in my opinion, the most exciting part of the job would be the various connections, knowledge and experience you

Don't work here
Company is not supportive of staff .Pushes their agenda on people they supposedly help, without regard to their wants. Management criticize and talks to you in a very belittling,demeaning manner. Very unsafe situations.

Could be an amazing organization, but it is not.
Toxic leader in housing division is causing harm, fear and intimidation to subordinates. Culture is low, engagement is low. Organization does amazingly rewarding work and it's mission and vision is not in line with what is actually taking place in the front lines in the residential program. Other programs and divisions are managed much better and its people are much happier. Not sure why such bully gets to stay there for so long when multiple reports and exit interviews reported their unethical behaviors.
Pros
rewarding work
Cons
Poorly managed organization with toxic culture

Great work place, hard to join the union, positive feedback, minimum wage, not enough hours.
Staff is very friendly and pleasant to work with.
Leaned how to work without supervision and also as a team.

Management is also very friendly and helpful.

Coworkers more or less qualified.

Hardest part of the job is not having enough hours and not enough responsibilities.

Most enjoyable part of the job is being recognized a a excellent worker on a regular basis.
Pros
great atmosphere.
Cons
minimum wage, not enough hours.
