Terrible- Do not volunteer with this organization
SJA volunteer (Current Employee) –  MONTREAL6 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

Great Contract work
First Aid Instructor (Current Employee) –  St. John's, NL17 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.
Pros
Great workinghours
Cons
Limited full time roles

First Aid Instructor (Occasional) (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC28 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)
