Horrible
Front Line Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Oakville, ON3 April 2019
Worst organization by far! You have no life you work long hours with clients ALONE! And when you ask for time off it’s a crime! Your vehicle will be ruined with the amount of driving you’ll have to do. Your more like an UBER driver. I started with a brand new vehicle and now a year later have to get a new one. Clients are often frustrated and unfortunately can’t express it. 99.9% of staff don’t last they end up walking off on the job. This organization is constantly reported to the ministry but nothing.
Work more than 40 per week. your promised vacation time etc. But get none of that and no benefits!!!!
Had to bathe clients with a bowl because they refuse to fix the pipe
Sleeping in homes with broken front doors and when asked to fix the door I was told “there’s more important things to worry about”…

If you value your life don’t work here. Your welcome

Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON12 January 2019
Working at OCH there was very little to no work life balance as the expection was to work full time hours and still be available while off duty to answer questions. OCH also tends to assign an overwhelming number of tasks to one individual opposed to employing additional staff to balance the work load. Training was also done haphazardly leaving you with a limited understanding of all task, yet management would berate you for incompleted tasks you were not made aware of. Additionally, the frontline staff tend to be under qualified having little to no interest in engaging/planning meaningful activities for the clients. Management was also very unsupportive when concerns about the operation of the homes, the care the clients receive, safety, etc was brought to their attention. The homes are run below the minimum standard making it extremely difficult to effectively do your job.
Pros
Positivly impacting Children and Youth
Cons
Long hours, no work life balance, management is condescending

Front Line Worker OCH (Current Employee) –  Oakville, ON13 June 2018
my typical day at work is to help residents with ADLs, light housekeeping, documentation, i learned better communication and better handling or residents during meltdowns, the hardest part of the job is during violent meltdown or a resident runs off. the most enjoyable part of the job is when residents acknowledge your love and show appreciation of your efforts with words, hugs and a warm smile.
Pros
clean house
Cons
no benefits and impromptu shifts in new houses
