Amazing Clients-
Mental Health Worker (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS17 May 2019
BUT -Managment Needs to connect better with Staff and Clients. There always seemed to be a disconnect and lack of respect and apprecieation for the clients and thier needs. This could be fixed easily by encouraging deeper connection for staff and clients ( i.e shared meals or encouragment to create a homelike environment and Better understanding of the EMPLOYEES HUMANITY- we are not robots and do also need a supportive work enviornment for both our own physical and mental health issues). And a better system of administrative organization for scheduling and communication in head office.
Pros
Amazing clients and pay
Cons
Management could use improvement

I worked in Community Health for only 3 years before moving to Alberta. Everyone I worked with were very Professional and had much respect for one another. It was important to multi-task and to be very efficient. Work duties included booking and checking in clients for Mental and Public Health appointments. Maintain the nursing data base and file health records. Complete daily any projects requested by Social Workers or Mental Health Workers. Other duties included; sending out letters for pre-vaccination appointments and being in charge of booking cars for workers and for servicing.
Pros
Wage, working with Professionals, friendly enviroment
Cons
I loved this job and there isn't anything i could say negatively

Poor management/condescending supervisors
Residential Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS4 May 2018
After working for this company for over five years, I can definitely say one thing. NO WONDER the turnover rate is so high. The management don’t support their staff, the staff are overworked and under appreciated.
Pros
50% of the staff are great to work with, pull their own weight and can get a job done
Cons
Horrible management, lack of employer support, Burnout, management delegate jobs to front line workers that should be taken care of by management, management does not follow union guidelines

Low morale amoung staff members, neglectful management
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS1 April 2018
The clients make this job worthwhile. Management is always overworking supervisory staff and they are unable to appropriately support the personal care workers. High risk for caregiver burnout.

Productive place to work
CRW (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS4 September 2017
Fun place to work, although long hours, hardest part of the job is working long hours. The overall company has good pay but not good with communication.

Terrible
Community residential worker (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS2 July 2017
I worked at CHS for a few months before realizing that it was not for me. It was an Unorganized company. No training or support from management. Sometimes you were thrown into a new house without any orientation or training. The only "good" part was the pay.
Pros
Pay rate
Cons
No training

CHS is a small options homes for individuals with mental health diagnosis that require assistance.
Program Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS9 May 2017
Aside from the benifits and RRSP there is a lot wrong with CHS. There is little ttainng and no support for new employees often left working alone in high work load homes with no support. Managent tends to belittle employees rather then coach. The over all organization is micromanaged with a few select employees used as favorites that gain all control. Very poorly run company from the top down. Great staff turnover from managers to support staff. Managers are run ragged with workloads far exceeding what could ever be managed. No regard for staff personal time. Calling support staff at all times days off etc after hours. All short staffed. Very unconstistant schedules.
Cons
being stuck on shifts when no staff, called after hours for work related issues
