An enjoyable, yet challenging work environment.
Counsellor & Housing Manager (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 7 February 2018
a typical day at work is to see residents on a daily basis, provide meal vouchers, coordinate services, referral for treatment services, case notes, emergency reports, contact local police officials
I learned a great deal about addictions, homelessness, and prostitution. The workplace culture is challenging with residents issues, however, there is a positive and friendly management staff.
The hardest part of the job - managing persons under the influence.
The most enjoyable part of the job - all aspects - client interaction, management, guidance, support and understanding of the stress.
Friendly, positive work environment
Job itself can involve violence, drugs, alcohol and police interaction
