Would not recommend working there
Worked at one of there homes for almost 20 yrs had to leave as new director took over, and it became a toxic work environment. The brothers of Good Shepard should be ashamed of themselves, they are disgusting and disgraceful to let this happen, as a lot of long time staff left there.

Management doesn't care!!
First off, loved my co-workers. Second, management doesn't care about you. Management constantly understaffed my department and instead grinds the current staff to the point of finding my co workers literally crying in a corner. Also, considering the amount of funding and donations they receive, they pay less than the other shelters in Hamilton.

Unacceptable
"People leave managers not organizations... turnover is mostly a manager issue."

People have limited commitment here. There so much staff turnover, It is unbelievable and absolutely alarming. And the thing that gets me most is that management always has a way to put the blame on the person who leaves or goes on leave. Somehow it's their failing that they couldn't live up to the ridiculous expectations and conditions. Management can't take responsibility for their own problems.

We need a union here so bad but everyone is too scared to talk about it openly. The only way we can give feedback to management is to put up a review on a website. They really need t0 clean house of the so-called 'leadership team' This isn't what real management looks like, because Intimidation and disrespect arent daily management strategies.

Nice place to work
Nice place to do volunteer, management is very humble and they help you all the time understand the process. Duties are all about food bank organizations, helping different types of people with their needs.

Toxic Work Environment
Staff are overworked, under appreciated, and expected to be endlessly available for everything. Management has a real disdain for the workers, and generally treats staff very poorly. Absolutely would not recommend working there.

GS - Hamilton
Worked there for years and without any notice was laid off due to “funding cuts”. GS uses funding that is allotted for programs and does whatever they want with it. Management/Directors are clueless and any feedback that staff provide them with goes nowhere. Staff are overworked and under appreciated. The culture is toxic and GS claim to be a huge support in the community however when it comes to there staff they are disposable and not valued. So happy to be gone and working in a much better workplace.

Good luck
Disorganized, toxic, no advancement opportunities, staff is overworked underpaid and underappreciated, management is clueless, staff are expected to be an on demand service. Expect to not have a lunch break or even a bathroom break. High turnover rate and high burnout rate. Good learning experience for new SW/SSWs just don't expect to actually receive training, productive feedback, or any guidance.

Comfortable Chaos
the day to day work was comfortable in the administration office.
It was relaxed and the work life balance was very good. However it was clear the direction of the organization was continually being driven without the proper planning necessary to make smooth changes. This caused a fair amount of confusion and a drain on financial resources. Considering it is a non profit organization relying on funds from the government and donors from the community, you cannot be sure that your job will be guaranteed. If they are required to cut costs in order to make budget, they will not hesitate to lay off employees.
Pros
Good work life balance
Cons
Job Security

Rewarding!! :)
The best part about working here is how rewarding it is to see the youth succeed especially after having a rough start. My coworkers are the most supportive and interesting group of people I have met. Same with the management team, they check in always, and encourage you to take breaks even when there seems to be no time.
