Early Intervention Therapist in Calgary, AB
Clicky staff, poor management, unprofessional, unethical, and no team supportI worked here for almost 5 months. I was so excited to start. Not even three weeks in, I started to hate it. The staff was very unwelcoming and clicky. If you are new, you will not be welcomed into the staffs "groups". Management does not care a lot about you (there were some, but unfortunately mine was rude when I brought up concerns and did not help me). I was thrown into the group home with little to no training, even though I was not told the severity of that position, nor was it the one I got hired on to do. I was constantly attacked and abused, and when reaching out to the team, they did not help one bit. The employees above the therapist team speak poorly about other staff, as well as the families they work for. I was very shocked when one of the behavior therapists spoke negatively about a child and their family. During some shifts, I would not be comfortable with the practices STA follows. I felt like it was unethical. I would not waste your time working here. You will be emotionally and physically drained, with little to no support. And if you bring up a concern, be prepared to be spoken bad about by other employees. The only benefit is the children and families. They were so welcoming and kind. Leaving the kids and families was the hardest part about leaving my position, but I would not go back even if they offered me more money. You do not get paid enough for what you have to deal with on a daily basis.
