Learned new skills in a supportive, diverse, inclusive environment. Management is affirming and grateful for efforts. Rounding up information was often difficult due to busy schedules. Colleagues helpful and supportive. Allowed me to give back in support for other staff experiencing difficulties.

Get the feeling that the agency is understaffed, underpaid, and management think that “thank you” pays for bills. No room for adv, staff (especially new hires) leave as soon as they can secure another job at a better agency, facilities are... more or less disgusting. Their kitchen is roach infested but continue to serve food to their own staff, seniors, children, parents... And the Director justifies poor wages by enforcing that the work culture should be “giving”. It’s hard to give when you can barely survive the wages, on top of which is barely worth getting attacked verbally and physically by clients and walking into bedbug infested client’s homes -COMPLETELY BARE without any insect protection whatsoever. Either management is aware and can’t do anything about it, or they are and just too lazy to do anything right.

Staff moral is so low you can see the awkwardness at staff meetings and events.
Pros
staff are able to support each other, secretly hoping things will change.
Cons
Too many to count. Ridiculous.

It is cultural and family oriented place to work, or volunteer. I never regret one day working there because I meet different people from different background.

The Warden Woods Community Center was a great place to work. My case manager was direct, understanding and passionate. There were a couple of events organized by the center which were excellent networking opportunities. I felt appreciated and satisfied.

I learned how to enter data using a different software program. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing positive results of the effort I put in. Also, seeing youth and community members' happiness and well-being.

Schedule transport for Seniors; Medical, Shopping and programme appointments..

I learned nothing.


Management is wanting.


Co-workers are committed and truly wonderful.


Hardest part of the job... Seriously I scheduled two small buses.


The most enjoyable part of the job? Community events were often a highlight at Warden Woods, Always a pleasure to see the community at play rather than coping with the violence that has troubled this neighbourhood.
Pros
If you enjoy community service, this is a wonderful community centre
Cons
Please see ratings.
