Rewarding work, long hours, challenging jobWorking here, you can make a real difference for families who need help BUTSenior management is all related to the founder, most upper management have family members working for Heartland, and if you can live with doing what you're told without asking questions then you may do well there. There is NO planning time during the day and you end up spending a lot of time driving a school bus or on home visits with families two times a year. Classroom expectations are high which means most of the planning and prep work happens at home on your own time. You will be working with very challenging children who come from very challenging backgrounds, expect to be hit, kicked, and bitten as a normal part of your day. In-class support is inconsistent, not all staff are equally trained or experienced to deal with tough situations. Teacher training is basic, you will need to be able to learn on your feet and not be put off by children who have high needs. Support from management to deal with these situations is inconsistent, but generally they do try. Heartland is trying to do a lot on a shoestring, this means that you will be asked to do a lot (jumping in to cover frequent staffing shortages) with almost nothing (for example being told not to colour photocopy anything because it's too expensive), it can be exhausting and despairing at times but it can also be very rewarding.

Supportive Team CultureAs a new teacher at Heartland, I can say that I have learned so much during my time here. I was lucky to work with 2 amazing EAs, and we had a very open and collaborative relationship within our classroom. The other staff, therapists and management team were very approachable and supportive, and answered all my questions as I was building my confidence. I love the relationships that staff are able to build with children and their families…it really makes the work I do so much more meaningful and rewarding. No two days are ever the same and I like that aspect of my job.

Rewarding workReading other reviews, I agree that the nature of the work is challenging and demanding. However, my experiences with the Agency have been very positive, with many of my co-workers having been with Heartland for more than 10 years. The management has always been fair, and has had to make difficult decisions with COVID and changes to funding. There are lots of little 'extras' that Heartland does for their employees that I appreciate...wellness days, staff lunches, professional development days, guest speakers, etc. The culture is very caring and nurturing, and staff and managers are there to support each other, especially during challenging moments. I have had the opportunity to work alongside a number of practicum students during my time at Heartland, and several have become employees after their placement because of their positive experiences.

Best Decision I Made!I worked at the Mayland Heights location. The past year was full of ups and downs. Things were getting hard after Christmas. There was a change in Management in April and I’m glad I stuck it out. Things got so much better and I’m looking forward to seeing what next year brings.

Wonderful Calgary Program!I have been an EA at Heartland for 8 years and am so happy to be part of this amazing team! The culture is very family-oriented and the people I work with truly care and work towards a common goal for children and families. I have been supported in my career growth through ongoing professional development and training opportunities, and I appreciate the trust my manager has put in me. Upper management is in touch with the program and often check in to get feedback from staff. I value the opportunities I have to learn and grow within my position. As a non-profit, the company is always finding fun and inventive ways to let the staff know that they care about them and value their contributions.
