UPCS is really working on providing and ensuring all employees have trauma informed care. The organization just keeps growing and adding to their quality of care to clients and employees.

I don’t remember, but if you called in sick the day of, your team won’t be happy because then you’ll most likely have a casual come in, and that’s chaos for the children. Because they take FULL ADVANTAGE of not having a full time staff that “knows what’s going on”

8 hour shifts and 12 on the weekends. Some programs are 8 hour shifts on the weekends too.
16 hours would only ever happen if someone called in for the shift after yours and No one is coming in, then you get kind of stuck. That’s not an every day occurrence. Consideration for your priorities is always considered. Some people have kids and can’t stay, they always work it out. Most people who work 16 hours volunteered to do so then complained later.

Every year I have worked here I have received a raise or a bonus of 1500 or more. I’ve been here 5 years.

Answered

This depends on each program which changes with clients. I’ve spent MANY shifts watching Netflix, bowling, movie theatres etc...
Some crisis can be overwhelming and too much, but the on call is always there to help problem solve.
Really depends on your personal skill set and relationship building skills of how the pace will go

Casual as we are working with children and youth

Answered

The hours are flexible if you are relief (you can pick and choose when you want to come in based on the open shifts available)

Not much flexibility as a full-time staff member.
