Volunteer Driver (Current Employee) – Whitby, ON – 6 March 2018
Typical day would be to pick up a client and drive them to their appointment. The most enjoyable part of the job was the social interaction with the client(s) on a daily basis with lots of communication and laughs.
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) – Pickering, ON – 16 August 2019
We had almost no training on the positions. Changes were being made and they tried to make it look like they were being "transparent" but had no intentions of it. I was told that I was "finally" dealing with things that had been asked to be dealt with for 3+ years. I could not handle my hands being tied and the office politics any longer so I needed to leave the agency. They hire based on pieces of paper, not actual knowledge. Management would rather never admit to being wrong.
fair pay, friendly peers/staff
minimal training, feel lost on the job, inconsistancy, dishonesty from above
Cared if you were ill, they sent you home so as not to make other employees sick.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Pickering, ON – 10 May 2019
Upper management (Directors & their direct Admin) were always looking at a way to mess you up & blame you for mistakes to cover their own butts. Put a lot of workload on the mental health COPE manager.
