I enjoyed my work and my team. I have been with that agency on three different jobs and enjoyed them all.
My supervisor was awesome, available, kind and very professional

Same role
Integration Support Worker (Current Employee) - Metro Vancouver Regional District, BC
After school and weekend contract work with children and youth with Special Needs involving integration into the community. Activities were developed and implemented to meet specific individual needs. Good support and on-going training available, plus staff appreciation day annually. Terrific, caring, dedicated supervisors. Working with kids and parents was highly rewarding - but as a non-profit agency there is not enough hours or pay to live in expensive Vancouver.
Pros
working with dedicated and caring supervisors - wonderful kids and families
Cons
Poor pay, poor hours, no advancement opportunity

Manager (Former Employee) - Vancouver, BC
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

Youth Worker (Former Employee) - Vancouver, BC
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.
