Special Events Coordinator in Edmonton, AB
on 9 December 2020
Great place to work if you are worried about getting losing your job every day due to politics
Horrible management at the time I worked there and no one was valued as an employee. You lived in fear for your job and the office politics was straight out of a soap opera.

One of the best cultures I have ever been a part of!
I worked at The Mustard Seed in Red Deer for just over 2 years and I would have to say it was 2 of the best years of my life. Although my frontline role presented several challenges with the people we cared for, it was a highly rewarding experience and I forever grateful for the opportunity. I gained a lot of confidence in the care giving industry as the team around me and leaders were very encouraging and supportive. This line of work is not for everyone and if people are not cared for by management and do not have a healthy work like balance with good self-care practices, then some may leave empty or angry. I have seen this in other agencies where the staff are not cared for well or the employee does not take very good care of themselves.The leadership at The Mustard Seed is very caring and cares a lot about each employee, their health, their families and their personal growth. All you have to do is speak with some of the committed volunteers who have been there consistently over the years the organization has been in town, and you quickly hear about an organization that is making a big difference in the lives of many people in Red Deer and beyond.

Well-meaning but high turnover and unorganized as a whole
Lack of knowledge surrounding harm reduction Lack of communication and partnership with other agencies Unorganized and often chaotic Overbearing staff Toxic work environment hiding under christian practises that are simply outdated for the clientele

Productive work environment
The work days are very well organized. The management is always very good. The Mustard Seed employees are very good at showing the new comers what and how to do the things that were supposed to do each day. 100%

Great place to work and grow your career
I worked for the organization for 3.5 years, based in Edmonton. I can truly say that with all things considered, it’s been the best place I’ve ever worked but I say that with my role in mind (not all roles are created equal and I can’t speak on the experiences my colleagues in the front lines at the shelters or at community hubs have). In the beginning it was tough as I was under a manager that had no business managing anyone, but after the department restructured, I began reporting directly to the Exec Dir, which changed everything for the better. I felt supported and encouraged, my ideas were welcomed and my boss trusted me to get my work done without breathing down my neck or constantly monitoring my every move. Any feedback I got was given to me in a way that was easy to digest and encouraged me to do better. Benefits are great, I felt the culture was positive for the most part (there’s always gonna be a little office politics anywhere you go), and I felt my work-life balance was great. I did end up moving on, but only because I’m looking for more upwards mobility in my career that I couldn’t see happening with my particular role. I would have stayed here forever if the opportunity was available. Overall it’s been an amazing place to work and I’ll always look back at my time there fondly.
