Working at directions youth detox was one of the biggest mistakes I have made in my career.

The senior staff are bullies, who take pride in pulling the strings and gossiping about staff who are new, and the atmosphere is unnecessarily competitive and punitive.

Youth Worker (Former Employee) - Vancouver, BC
No advancement withouth required education. A great starting point when you are fresh out of school. Get your experience and move on. Easy to get too comfortable in a position. You may find you work alone a lot. Constant open part time lines.
Pros
the wonderful clients
Cons
Staffing problems

Very rewarding job working with youth, with various addictions. Working in a team environment to provide supports during a difficult time. Providing resources and assisting in the transition.

this company promotes inclusiveness and diversity but is very judgmental and gossip filled workplace.. it is only inclusive if you are a member of a visible minority
it does not value long time employees

management at head office are smug and uninviting

the CEO is not liked by senior mgmt
