Youth Support Worker in Fredericton, NB

Keep looking
Underpaid, understaffed, and higher up doesn’t support you. Can be put in situations which can be really traumatizing as well as demeaning. Make sure you already have a therapist or insurance to get one.

It's not worth it.
Little to no support, no training to actually help staff in the field. Half assed attempts to benefit the "wellness" of the staff. ZERO support for difficult clients. Manipulation within the higher ups, lots of backstabbing at all levels of staff, little to no raises, will work you to the bone, then getting in trouble for a simple mistake.

10/10 would NOT recommend
I worked at WFS for almost 3 years. The only reason why I stayed so long was due to the relationship I built with the clients. Upper management is selfish and does not care about anyone but themselves. They hire just about anyone including their spouses who receive a great pay check when all of their other staff is underpaid and overworked. Unless you suck up and they like you, it is unlikely that you will move up management as they have their favourites already picked out. Anything to do with the wellness of staff is severely neglected. And to top it all off, they have a 0 gossip policy but upper management is the worst for gossiping about their employees. I would NOT recommend WFS whatsoever.

Stay Away
On paper, wonderful company which truly prioritizes youth in need. Once hired, you will quickly realize this isn’t the case. Little to no support from upper management and out of control youth who consistently put workers in difficult and dangerous situations and have no consequences to their actions are just a couple reasons. Owners are constantly finding ways to cut costs regardless of the impact on the staff or youth. As long as money is in their pockets, they do not care. Enjoy whatever wage you start at, because you will likely get very little to no raise regardless of how hard you work. They would rather replace you with someone less qualified then give you an extra dime. If you truly want to make a difference, I strongly suggest you look for somewhere else to work. STAY AWAY.

Good place to learn
Good opportunity to learn both what to do and what not to do. Minimal opportunity for career advancement, minimal opportunity for wage increase. Upper management offer little to no support in any situation. Thankful for the learning opportunities I was given with this job but honestly that’s about it. 2/5 stars is a generous rating.
