Awesome place to work, good pay, benefits and people....including management. I've been there 20 years and I consider myself very blessed to be working there.The staff are second to none.
Very flexible, good pay, great opportunities for advancement
stressful at time, but well worth it.
You are warned right at the interview that the staff is ‘catty’. Management’s words, verbatim. You do not know who to to trust and the people you are warned about are absolutely the folks you want to avoid. The citizens are great and the support staff (kitchen, maintenance, etc are wonderful people). The full time staff with seniority are petty, vindictive, and break safety rules daily. STAY AWAY!
Weak union, bullies for staff, deplorable HR
No over time pay Forced to bank overtime. On call twice as much as advertised. Foreman level 2 micromanges and controlling. High turnover rate, unskilled management. Misled and lied to right from the interview forward. Strongly would recommend if your a leader go elsewhere. Stuck in old school ways and blind to the blind to reality.
Free Gatorade 2 times a year
Management stuck in 1980
There is an under lying culture of bullying rampant in the County. If you are apart of the right group you are ok. If you are not then you will be talked about, you will be isolated. It happens in all levels of employment. Managers and other leaders go along with the majority, ultimately continuing the isolation and bullying. People were friendly, the job was fantastic. Pay was excellent. But ultimately the stress of the culture forced me to find something else.
Working for private people is enjoyable as you set your own standards and help the kids stay organized feel accomplished then having fun with them is great to build relationships
Free food, have fun with kids
Kids can sometimes be moody and not listen to you

I was responsible for the delivery of children serivces, child care subsidies, wage subsidies, special needs resources, resource centre funding, Best Start funding, and programming and services at a directly operated Child Care program. I was accountable for a departmental budget over $17 million dollars, adminstration of policies and procedures respective to children and youth services and the supervision of 39 staff. The most enjoyable part of the job was the ability to assess the impacts of emerging change of a complex service system and provide strategic direction for local program delivery and community planning!
