Senior Resident Support Worker in Seniors Housing
Lots of autonomy and opportunities for training and learning. Vast job description and responsibilities..This is not a job for the faint of heart. That being said, my overall experience has been a positive one. There are opportunities for growth on a daily basis. Very supportive Team Leaders and co-workers. I've learned not to reach out to management and to rely on my self and my co workers. I've been with Victoria Cool Aid Society in supportive housing for 9 years.

Crisis Intervention Worker/ Team Leader in Victoria, BC
This is a difficult work environment. There's no way to make this sound nice. It's a tough environment... angry people, smoke, smells (cleaning product and b.o.). Lots of cleaning and lots of complaining. The shelter is a tough place to work in. When I was there it was 12 hour shifts.

Residential Support Worker in Victoria, BC
Very difficult place to workIt is a corporate culture that breeds contempt and unhealthy competition. Managers are absent, and when present have this blame the employee for everything attitude. NO managerial support and dangerous working conditions that see you exposed to various forms of smoke, abuse from management and clients. You spend a large portion of your shift navigating clients that are allowed to run roughshod over you and you have no recourse or manager that will stand up for you as an employee. The senior management are so disconnected from what is going on at the ground level, they will not even come to see what workers have to deal with on a daily basis, that we are treated as disposable employees. No attempt is made to listen and hear what is being said. Its all about making it easier for them, yet we as the workers on the ground doing the grunt work are ignored and treated like trash. No room for any form of generative discussions because no one would listen. Very punitive managers and human resource workers.
