Intake Specialist (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 April 2019
I loved volunteering with H&S. The staff were all extremely friendly and were always able available to help with any inquiries or problems. They are an extremely motivated group of individuals, dedicated to improving Canadians lives.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 30 March 2019
Had a great time volunteering and educating people about what a stroke is and how it can occur and interacting with people and them telling me life stories about them and how they knew people how had strokes also get overall experience
Special Events Coordinator (Former Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 18 January 2019
Leadership takes the time to connect to all employees and WHY people are there and the work is driven by so much passion. Makes going to work for not-for-profit paycheques a little easier to swallow ;)
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Saint John, NB – 4 October 2018
This was a great place to do an internship. Everyone was very friendly there. I mainly did the administrative assistant position but did a little bit of everything while I was there. My supervisor was very nice and understanding woman. The most enjoyable part of my job was knowing I was helping to raise money for research for heart and stroke and to help put AED machines in every public arena and school.
clean working place and washrooms friendly co worker's and office staffs, handicap friendly place to work at and a big parking space.
May 2018 Campaign Recruiter (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 August 2018
People are friendly and the work atmosphere is really fantastic.earned a bit, management is good to personnel, a bit hard going to work when its snowing most enjoyable part is the 15 minute's break with free coffee, tea and sometimes free food.
Friendly atmosphere, flexible hours and free coffee and tea.
Fun place to work for a good cause, not so great for career
Part-Time Telerecruiter (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 August 2018
Great environment and people to work with. There's also set hours so no surprises in regards to scheduling. The pay isn't spectacular but its understandable. Not a position meant to take you into a career with them, as you are very disposable. Downside is that if you dont recruit enough volunteer in a span of a couple weeks, you get laid off.
Great cause to work for, Free coffee/tea/hot chocolate, christmas parties, set hours, friendly environment. Looks good on resume.
Late hours during week, easy to get let go, mean callers/customers, low pay
Sr. Advisor Development (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 August 2018
The Heart & Stroke Foundation is going through a National Restructuring at the moment which makes working here very tenuous as you do not know which are or which job will be restructured or eliminated without notice. The work environment is great and the people and culture is great, but if job security is a priority, not so great.
A Company That Can Saves Lives One Heartbeat at a Time.
Administrative Assistant (Volunteer Position) (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 July 2018
The Heart and Stroke Foundation is a charity that I believe in and many people support. They get their message out there about heart attacks and strokes in many ways. All of their campaigns are worthy of volunteering for or to place a donation.
A typical day involved working on different projects and opening my eyes to what the volunteers do in order to support the foundation. I learned a lot while being at The Heart and Stroke Foundation and the staff were wonderful to work with.
