Take advantage of disability staff

I worked there like a year and a half. I lost my job for no reason. This is a horrible company and very discrimination and some staff telling other lies. New worker gets heavy work than other staff. The rate of pay is horrible and if you work there for over two years and they won't increase your wage. One of the former workers told me that they increase the wage of about 0.25 or 0.50 cents. Toronto has no Union, only Milton. This place is no enjoyable. It isn't easy to work for other staff. No free lunch but only Tuesday can buy lunch from the cafe. It is a challenging job but worth it. Should be paid more for what we deal with though. It is not a great place to be and many of the staff quit.

Workplace was well taken care of, well planned out with field activities along with water activities as well.

A typical day at work is waking up myself and all my campers in the morning at 7:00 for breakfast and making sure everyone has taken their medications. I learned that you cannot treat all campers the same, as some campers may need more attention than others due to physical or mental complications.


Free lunches


Head staff aren’t always around

I don't know what to say this is the same location as my other position so there was not too much of a change between the two. Again the location and residents of the place are amazing but management has some communication issues.

interesting workplace

I worked as Prep cook at Bob Rumball Center for the Deaf in Toronto, Ontario. BRCD is a place for Deaf people to go to. It have Senior nursing home and daycare for children. There are several programs for Deaf people to check in. I used to prep all food and cook, to have it ready by lunch for all people work at BRCD and senior people, children. I invent some menu to make it interesting for people to try and taste. I done the inventory on food items and track the budget form to watch how much it spent money on food and things, counting money as well. I also file the papers and sent it to the manager. I learn to have all food ready by lunch exact on time. enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and make new friends. most hardest part of the job was lifting heavy items from truck to the fridge and freezer and make bulk food to have things ready.


free lunchs, and meeting people, flexiable hours and shifts


not enough shifts to provide to me.
