Great position, well paying, tiring job, but rewarding. Government branch controls everything though and can leave you without work for weeks.
Behavioural Interventionist (Current Employee) –  Delta, BC17 April 2017
Management was great, position itself was great, tiring but very rewarding.
Pay was very good.
The union/board(?) that controls the company does not have the best interest of staff and clients in mind.

Hours worked well with a school schedule. Position was flexible during shift. Manager was knowledgeable, organized and interested in the well being of our client.
Pros
Hours worked well with a school schedule.
Cons
Job security is poor.

CSW (Former Employee) –  Port Moody, BC13 November 2015
CVS has some awesome staff who really do care. Sad that the management doesn't. U can be called in with an hour or less warning and then chastised if not available that quickly. Very low pay and low kl. per shift with 2 or more clients, usually more than 2 clients. No directive, very little or no on site training. Staff there for longer period are very gossip minded and give little to no assistance, even when asked
Pros
gets u some experience if fresh from school

Enjoyed the people I supported, management needed reorganizing
Community Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Coquitlam, BC2 February 2014
Supporting individuals with physical and emotional challenges in their lives. I learned that inclusion is an ongoing area of work, especially when you are in the community. Strong advocates needed in this area of work. Co-worker on the whole were professional, however lots of burnt out staff. The hardest part of the job was working with people (staff) who did not want to be there. The most enjoyable part of the job was educating the public about the challenges, adults with special needs face, and changing the stigma attached to this.
Pros
Close by
Cons
negative staff attitudes
