Good workplace

A typical day at Wilkinson includes doing intakes and helping clients with things such as giving them basic necessaties that Salvation Army provides for them, or things that get donated. Some days are slow and some days can be harder than others. Working at a homeless shelter is a real eyeopening experience, and good experince for those who want to become social workers. You are able to see the reality of things at this shelter, and barriers that you face with clients that sometimes prevent you from helping them. I would have to say the most enjoyable part of this job is being able to get along easily with the staff, and they are very helpful so always ask questions. It can be a very rewarding job, and some of the clients can be very nice and welcoming.

Excellent place to build your experience

The Salvation Army Peel is a great place to work to build experience. Most of the management team are empathetic towards staff needs, except for a few latecomers wanting to prove their status. Like any other organization, they are very political when it comes to staff promotion. The benefits are relevant and salary meagre.

Pros

Benefit relevant

Cons

salary meagre
