Medical First Responder (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 11 June 2018
The most enjoyable part of volunteering with St. John Ambulance is meeting lots of different people and helping others when our assistance is needed. I also enjoy the free lunches that some of the event organisers provide to us.
SJA volunteer (Current Employee) – MONTREAL – 6 June 2018
I worked with SJA for over a year and was a victim of bullying and harassment by other workers. The organization is terribly unorganized. Run by people who have no idea what they are doing and give minimum effort. STAY AWAY
Volunteer, Toronto2015 Pan Am Games (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 12 January 2018
Volunteered during the Toronto2015 Pan Am Games - the volunteers were absolutely phenomenal staff, some of whom spent two years preparing for the games. Great coworkers, great environment. Would relish the opportunity to volunteer again.
Great networking, great staff, doing something good for the city
First Aid Instructor (Current Employee) – St. John's, NL – 17 October 2017
Great place, although they are non-profit so it's only contract work. The pay is fine based on a per-day, I wish they would offer full time position. A "typical day" depends greatly on the course you are teaching. It could be a One day course for 6 hours and up to 8hrs a day for a week.
CPR and First Aid instructor (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 1 October 2017
Very friendly and approachable people who want and expect the best from who is instructing the various courses that are offered. Fascilitates a professional learning environment in and out of the classroom.
First Aid Instructor (Occasional) (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 28 September 2017
The pay is decent for a contract job. You can set your own schedule, but sometimes it is hard to get a branch to contract with you. They don't receive feedback from their contractors well. Sometimes have unrealistic expectations of the instructor and their target audience (incredibly fast-paced material in a short amount of time, many students are ESL and don't understand)
