Admit when management has made a poor decision and reverse it instead of doubling down on a bad investment.
Dealing with staff and guardians. Listening to the concerns of each side and trying to make sure that the needs of the clients are met and not just because staff don't want to or a guardian has a specific idea of what the job should be.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make WJS Canada a better place to work?
I've been with the company for almost 8 years. Is it perfect? No, but they do their best. Staff are given a lot of opportunity for training. Regular gifts throughout the year are a nice little boost to morale.
Good wages and benefits. The ability to take more training. Open communication between front line staff and management.
We generally interview with two people. One to ask the questions, one to write the answers. This also allows a second person to get the real sense of the person being interviewed. Looks as such don't matter, but be dressed decently and don't be chewing gum. Be ready for between a half hour to an hour as there might be a written portion of the interview.
Remember that sometimes the interviewers are just as nervous as the interviewing. We aren't professionally trained HR people so we do the best with what we have.
We try to make it a comfortable environment.
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at WJS Canada? What are the steps along the way?
Depends on the position you are looking for. Once the interview process is over it might take time to get your references. Once those are completed the decision is made. Then there is the required paperwork such as criminal intervention, child welfare, driving record etc.
Depends on your position. We do have set hours, but some are flexible depending on the needs of the individual in service.
