High staff turnover, poor programming, so-so starter job. Not worth your time. This agency does not strive for excellence. Few full time workers. Uses temp agencies to fill shifts. A lot of injuries. Non therapeutic treatment.

Not many

Low pay, clients aren’t respected, not a team atmosphere.

Stay clear
CYW (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON16 October 2018
Great clients but staff that talk negative about the clients and their families.
Very unprofessional youth worker's that have completed placements then hired, as they have been molded as students.
Wages are a joke, staff injuries are high, due to using restraints to often.

There is a union but they take forever to do anything.

i have already reviewed this company once. This second one will be redundant. Overall i like my job but it is not a long term option for most people. too many lay offs, too many injuries, far too low pay.
