Overnight Animal Care Worker in Toronto, ON
Unreasonable Expectations from Unhelpful Management
I really loved this job because it’s so rewarding however when they hired me they were supposed to be a minimum of 2 overnight ACWs but it was only me. I was the only human in the whole building from 8PM till 7:30AM. The duties of two people were already overwhelming but then there was an influx of kittens who required syringe feeding. It takes about 15 minutes to warm the formula, draw enough of it, safely feed the kitten, and the record the details for ONE KITTEN There were usually 4-5 that needed feeding so with barely enough time to finish my usual work kid I had over an hour eaten up by feeding the kittens

The job is physically exhausting as well as mentally. It wouldn't be so bad if management was understanding that ACWs are humans and not robots who have super speed. Management doesn't care, they'll make it seem like they do but really they don't. Understaffed shifts make it easy to burn out. Even if you don't have anxiety you're definitely gonna develope it and have numerous break downs from the lack of support. When you do have time to interact with the animals its great because each animal is unique.

Do not recommend for a place of employment. Management lacks on a day to day basis. Animals are not there 1st priority as they claim. I haven’t had to write a negative review regarding a work place but there is a 1st time for everything.
