Student placement in Burlington, ON
on 5 February 2018
Student placement
Reach Out Centre for Kids has many different programs within the agency, and thus has many opportunities for both employment and student placements. I learned a lot.

Team work orientated & Caring towards everyone involved.
As a co-op student I had an inside look into the organization, they are like one big family. Very caring for everyone who is involved with the organization. I have a deep appreciation for the work they put in to make everyone feel appreciated.

Great place to work
I loved working here. My clinical manager was very supportive and approachable. This workplace allowed for excellent worklife balance - as in the respected and expected that you had a life outside of work. They were not able to pay as much as other agencies however I felt they always did their best to give more - such as staff appreciation days, and an exercise hour a week. These little things helped me feel appreciated and valued. I also appreciated how much room they allowed for clinical supervision. This is very necessary for all therapists, and I have since learned that not all work places respect the importance of clinical supervision, like this one did. They also never micromanaged us, and always respected us as professionals. I would have stayed here forever if it wasn't because I needed to move closer to family.

High Turnover
Knowing how to navigate the internal politics at ROCK gets you further at this agency than being focused on your craft. Fear tactics are used by management and VPs in place of direct, constructive feedback, so many staff are often anxious about their job security. If you don't know how to play the political game at ROCK, you can and will be dismissed without any formal (or informal) warnings or write-ups (performance reviews, etc), contradictory to what management communicates to employees.

Unhealthy Workplace Culture
ROCK provides great services to its community and offers appealing opportunities to those working in the mental health field, however, experiences of health and happiness (as an employee) depend highly on who your manager is and what department you are employed under. Upper management tend to foster an unhealthy work environment that contributes to high burnout and a fear-based culture.

Interview questions

Nothing but nonsense. Testing to see if you fit into their country club. The interview questions did not relate to the work. It is all about impressing the management, not actually helping the community or clients.
