I was working with them as a Research Assistant. The work Culture is nice and quiet. People at The County of Simcoe are very friendly. Since day one you will feel like home. Working with them was a very rewarding thing for me.

Generally positive experience.
Work culture was fairly positive. Benefits and pension were a plus but maybe a little behind other municipal bodies. I felt the pay level was substandard for the industry.

competitive wages
Over all great place to work with competitive wages. It can be stressful as it is very fast paced but it is worth it as the extra hours are available if wanted and the wages are competitive. Very professional place to work.
Cons
fast-paced

Great facility and job stability
I really enjoyed the small gym facility offered at the administration centre. This job allowed for a great learning experience for me. The staff I worked with in the HR department were all very friendly and easy to work with.

Not a bad place to be part time or casual
Employees are far over worked or have to work short a lot which creates stress and tension.
Pay is decent.

Hours are pretty crazy and all over - hard to balance

Residents are well taken care of and cared about.

Good/hard working employees

stress and tension, hard to balance

great team
I love this job ! the management and my team are compared to non. I have the ability to share my knowledge and that knowledge is respected and used in all situations. The support given by my supervising nurses is like non I have ever had in my 18 years of working as a PSW. The training I receive is above all that I have ever gotten in all my years in health care. Our job focus is behaviors in LTC, but the training we receive is broad training for all aspects of the residents that we deal with. This is truly my dream job and I am so grateful to have been chosen to join the team.
Pros
a valued part of the team
Cons
Pay isnt compareable to LTC

Fulfilling place of employment with lots of interaction with people
This position had a high level of confidentiality required in working with upper management and in an environment of unionized staff. Responsible as Assistant to the Administrator and 5-7 Managers needs.

Constant management meetings required recording of minutes daily, processing and distribution to appropriate members.


Developed a new filing system as required by the Government changing from paper to an electronic system. Took 1 yr to develop and a lot of care to assure all documentation from all management had been captured for future reference.


Liaison for staff and HR when they had questions or problems requiring confidentiality.


Received calls of complaint from clients wanting higher level review of their case capturing all of their information without partiality and placement with proper management for followup. This required diplomacy as well as accuracy of recording the information.


Before retiring stepped down into Social Housing doing clerical recording of clients information into the computer program which deemed eligibility. Also helped develop policies and procedures for this new division for management.


Left to retire and took on part time work. There were no part time opportunities in the Social Services.
Pros
excellent benefits, good friendships developed inside and outside of work place
Cons
stressful at times
