Management sucks

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Higher management is unbelievably incompetent ,no respect given to driver's, and and expect everything from you. Management goes out of their way to work against you instead of with you.

Pros

Fellow employees are friendly and helpful

Cons

Long hours and no respect

Fun place to work as a volunteer

Nice co-workers and management team. Volunteers given a variety of job tasks from office work to canvassing and marketing. Everyday was different, great experience for first time workers.

Evenings and weekend. Not recommend

Not much training or support. Pay is low. Bonus pay if you can make many many calls and only if pickup is scheduled and has to result in being picked up.. People can be nasty and rude.

Non supportive management

Awsome people

It was a good healthy place to work. Good customer service experience. Good phone experience. Boss was easy going. I like working there. It was hard to ask people for donation.

Friendly Group (Clothesline Operation)

I work part-time for Clothesline Operation and it is great. Very friendly family atmosphere. Everyone helps you out, the Regional Management, Office Manager and drivers -great crew. The Charity has been around for a long time, but you really get an understanding of how things work, where the money goes, and how much public support is needed. Keep supporting the clothesline operation and stamp out Diabetes

Pros

Family Atmosphere

Cons

No Permanent Office Locally

Cons

unpredictable hours which goes very low in summer, little room for growth

Depressing place to work.

Senior Staff do not interact well with teams under them. Out of touch. Have unrealistic goals and in my experience each department is 'siloed' making it difficult to cultivate relationships/cross promote the organization externally..

Pros

No expectation to stay late. Good work / life balance.

Cons

Hard to feel pride in your work due to high operational costs, a lot of donor money is wasted on huge executive salaries and frequent mistakes.

great place to work

I enjoyed working for the Canadian Diabetes Association, we were collecting donations to help in any way we can. The part I likes most was the fact that I was able to work from home.

A friendly place to work if you can

Start working in the non profit organization in Jan 2015. In general, it is a friendly working environment. I was laid off in Mar 2020 due to impact of Covid19. Otherwise, I will keep working there.

Relaxed Environment

I worked in a fast paced environment. I learned a lot in this job. The work culture was relaxed. The best part of the job was dealing with the customers.

Bad place to work

Manager say some thing and dispatcher say other. They change plan and shedule daily. They call driver frequently. There is high pressure of keeping the target. End of the day driver does not have energy to do any other thing,Very stressful job for that reason they advertise for job every month. Edmonton management is horrible bez they dont know what they are doing.

some think wrong

HANOVER ,The position for driver has been in continuous search for more than 18 months, I talking with several peopleworking before and do not recommend this job, tiring, without benefits, insecure plus a very bad working environment ... not recommended,

Generally nice people work here, some are too comfy and care less about the cause

There's no formal training, a typical day was figuring out what the heck I'm doing and then asking people for money for a cause which was lost in the backward-like mindset of an outdated unevolved organization.

Meh

Way too much labour and for $19 an hour it's not worth it at all considering you don't get any benefits or advancements.... management is poor here ;they look at you as a number not a person. They are very disorganized as well.. Don't work here you're better off working as a garbage truck operator making anywhere between 60 to 70 thousand dollars a year with full benefits and a pension
