Not enough staff for the residents. Very exhausting. Always working short and the phone never stops ringing for call ins. I enjoyed the residents and the staff but the management was less than to be desired.

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!
Pros
Decent wage
Cons
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.
Pros
Free Gatorade 2 times a year
Cons
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.
Pros
High pay
Cons
Poor Leadership

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!
