Unprofessional and mean spirited
RC Coach (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB8 November 2017
Job description altered after interview.
Salary in contract was different to the one stated upon job offer, so were working hours/times and location of office space.
First day of work I was ordered to stay home as management had not yet discussed a plan of action for this position although it was not filled for over 6 months.
Meetings were cancelled, changed around or supervisor late.
In week 1 job description was changed again about 3times by supervisor without having discussed it prior with management.
Cons
Unprofessional and toxic work environment

High value placed on client services
Program Facilitator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB10 September 2017
Tense work environment with few office space so most administrative duties must be completed in shared computer rooms with about ten computers and ten co- workers at a time entering daily data. High value placed on client/childcare excellence and family support. Low wages for frontline workers but great vacation days. Managers dismiss frontline workers pretty easily. Asked to perform duties not in job description. Lots of snacks available everyday.
Pros
Food, vacation, parking
Cons
Offices, job security, wages
