All about covering up the horrible things going on
Rehabilitation Worker/Support Services Attendant (Current Employee) –  Sudbury, ON28 June 2018
Horrible place to work. The supervisor is useless. Stays in the office and never leaves to actually see what's happening. Never knows about any of the issues going on.
Consumers are not taken care of properly. Weekly they are not getting their medication. Broken equipment. Untrained staff. Consumers safety is regularly at risk.

When you bring up your concerns, they get swept under the rug and you're made to be the one treated as though you're making stuff up.
No staff is an understatement. Never enough staff to work properly. There is zero rehabilitation actually happening.
Universal precautions are rarely followed when it comes to soiled linen and clothing.

They are a mess but they'll do everything they can to make it appear as though they aren't...and that includes firing anyone who poses a risk to blowing the whistle.

The consumers themselves are the best part of the job!
Pros
Consumers
Cons
Everything besides the consumers

Support Services Attendant (Former Employee) –  Welland, ON21 March 2018
HORRID management at the King street site.... condescending, rude, not trustworthy or understanding.
Some staff bully new employees.
The actual job itself is great. When your not constantly feeling like every shift your bound to get dumped on for doing something wrong. feeling of stress anytime the boss is in the office ... can't feel good about doing your actual job... stressful

Great, excellent work environment with Wellness and Fitness Testing
Support Services Attendant (Former Employee) –  Oak Ridges12 March 2018
Great company to work with. A lot of opportunities to upgrade and learn. Great corporate culture and opportunity to grow. The most difficulty about this job is, rain or shine, you have to be ready to go to the consumers home. The most enjoyable part of the job is good benefit and a defined pension.

MODC is engaging on National Expansion
REGIONAL MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS8 February 2018
Overall a very fair employer. National Expansion is struggling and the company wanted to go in a different direction than my job skills.
The hardest part of the job was working in isolation and the lack of communication.
Pros
35 hours a week. Allow you to work independently.
Cons
very poor communication.

Vocational Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON20 November 2017
My career with March of Dimes Canada provided me challenge, growth, satisfaction and stability. The most typical or routine portion of the work was dealing with individuals with the desire to improve their lives by accessing meaningful employment options. My colleagues were inspiring in their efforts to assist their clients and overcome any challenges. The hardest part of my position was encouraging patience in my clients as they became excited about their prospects. This was to allow clear and objective decisions to be made with them on the next step to achieve success.
