CYW (Former Employee) –  Youth Justice23 April 2019
In the social service field, great pay and benefits including security because of unionization. However the majority of management is discriminatory and bussiness-minded lacking compassion and understanding of frontline issues. This has created a toxic environment of burn out and bitterness.
Pros
Benefits, Pay, Union
Cons
Lack of empathy

Former employee in Youth Justice. CYW
Child and Youth Worker- Open (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 April 2019
The job itself has meaning if you are truly dedicated to helping youth. It is really just the staff, the constant complaining, and rumors. the favoritism from supervisors and how people obtain their positions when others had clearly obtained more seniority over the years.
Pros
You get the opportunity to counsel and change the lives of youth
Cons
Bad staff environment, to much chatter.

Uncaring staff
Relief staff (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON16 June 2018
I was shocked at how controlling and unreceptive to suggestions the managers were . I don't believe they had the best interests of the teens and families in mind. The organization could improve s lot but the executive director is too much of an egomaniac to listen.
Pros
The hours
Cons
Treatment of clients and families

Amazing Experience
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON29 March 2018
Incredible experience to have been a part of such a wonderful team for so long. As the full time receptionist, I was able to connect with clients, their families, community members and last but never least, 195 co-workers. Every day was different, and each moment there gave me an opportunity to use my abilities to make people feel comfortable and welcome. Truly, the hardest part of the job was witnessing the struggles of some youth with personal backgrounds that were unable to provide stability and nurturing. The Turning Point Team, at all levels certainly are dedicated to offer programs that enable youth to move ahead in spite of obstacles. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to connect with so so many wonderful people on a daily basis.
Pros
Very pleasant working conditions
Cons
Not enough flexibility with regards to scheduling
