Executive Assistant in New Westminster, BC
on 7 October 2020
Busy and Fulfilling Work
Work at EFry is never boring - there is a lot of work to do on both big and small projects. It is definitely a place for people who thrive on variety and hard work, which appeals to me. Although there was little formalized training when I started, the senior management introduced me slowly to the projects I would work on, and they are always available to answer questions or offer advice. My coworkers are all friendly and passionate about their jobs. The workplace culture is a little intense, but I have found upper management supportive of my work/life balance boundaries when I have needed to take time off or leave on time. I admire EFry's feminist ideals and the way they implement their values into every day work life, and honestly, my opinion of the organization has only improved the longer I've worked here.
Support Worker in Shelter Surrey
on 30 August 2020
Worst place I have ever worked
I accepted this position with EFRY (casual) because I had heard so many wonderful things about this agency and everything it stood for but after working there for a couple of months I realized how misleading that was I worked many of their programs and one day I accepted a shift at the shelter only to be told I no longer work there. No notice, nothing , only that I had not accepted a shift at the shelter where I was hired. I sent off an email to HR and never did get a response. I mean NOTHING. No reason other than I had not accepted a shift at the program I was hired for. Terrible management especially the shelter in Surrey. It was nothing but bullying and bad behavior. At one point I was speaking with the program supervisor as she sat there with her eyes closed. Also terrible pay and they want you to have a degree on top of that. We do the work of a MSW but got paid next to nothing. I would never encourage anyone to work here unless they chage a lot of things throughout their agency.

A place to avoid.
Bad culture. Avoid at all costs. Unhealthy work/life balance. Bullying and demeaning management style. Toxic work environment. Minimal training for difficult job duties.
Residential Support Worker in Surrey, BC
on 13 June 2019
Learned a lot about women only services
They do good work. Supported me to use sick off for my kids. Did not appreciate the pension at 25 but at 32 I am looking where it is going to get me.
CAMP COUNSELOR IN TRAINING in New Westminster, BC
on 16 February 2019
productive and energetic counselor
A typical day at work was waking up before the campers would, and going to morning meetings to plan out the activities for the day. Then, we would have to make sure the kids were safe, having fun, and in our line of sight. What i learned is organization skills, productivity, communication skills, and conflict resolution. what i learned about myself is that I'm very patient, even when someone is being confrontational.
