active care youth and adult services is a good company, however you have to be ready to be on the go 24/7. management can also seem a bit bossy or rude sometimes, for the most part though all of them are very sweet and great to work with

At Active Care, I can say that watching the youth flourish; however, fast or slow is truly rewarding. There can be many tough days, though, working through their trauma, learned behaviors, etc. it can test you in ways that you did not think were possible. If you can rise to that challenge, then you will see growth in your self as with the youth.

Regarding the management interactions and handlings, you can see that they are still getting their sea legs. There has been rapid growth, and with that comes rapid growing pains. It can be frustrating having to wait because of processes being re-vamped or waiting for the process of approvals to go through the channels that it must, but aside from that, the management is great people.
Points positifs
Fulfilling, great pay, accommodating
Points négatifs
work life balance

Honestly, the frontline workers are amazing ! They make sure that they are there for the youth and their needs are taken care of. The MAJOR problem is the management!!!! Wow, very unprofessional and rude ! It’s really sad how frontline workers do their jobs very well but management can tell you that “they forgot” when it comes to the things regarding the staff. Staff is very mistreated
Points positifs
Great frontline workers
Points négatifs
HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT

The management of this private facility is horrid and greedy. Poor wage and unwilling to increase, $17/hr for a care aid. Yikes. Do not expect a raise unless you’re willing to beg. There’s a reason this company has a problem with staff turnover. They burn every bridge they build with good employees. The residents and some coworkers are great but these people running it cannot be trusted and I promise you, they do not care about you.

There is a few really great people that work for this company but unfortunately that is all, only a few. Upper management is a joke, unprofessional, uneducated and have no experience. This company is greedy and for profit. They will hire anyone just to have shifts covered and keep the money coming in. They do not have the best interest of the youth in mind, nor do they care about their employees. The program cordinators think they are so above the staff and give them no support at all, plus they are competing for the "team leader positions". The majority of the people working for this company barely finished grade 12. The ed is the worst of them all, she has the biggest ego and treats anyone "below her" like trash. The youth hate most of the staff and people working there because they are aware of how shady this company is. The office life is so ridiculous, you can feel the egos and competitiveness from everyone. They constantly complain about staff or anyone "below" them in order to fit in with each other, the bottom line is they don't know what they are doing and blame it on "their staff". For profit companies like this need to be shut down.

Never a dull moment with this company. Being able to adapt, learn quickly, and remain composed during crisis situations, are skills I used on a day to day basis. As a front line staff, I worked with some of the most high risk youth in this province - we were very busy, our managers seemed TEN times busier, upper management even more high stress. I personally enjoyed the fast paced environment and diversity of the youth. Front line youth workers are given a variety of resources to work at, scheduling does their best to place people based on youth needs and staff’s own preference. No union, which is great, no extra fees.The company grew hard and fast, managers were tasked to train employees themselves because the company hires individuals with one year experience etc. Pay is great considering you don’t need a degree to get a job here. I was given the chance to work with these youth and now turned this opportunity into a career path. Honestly, this job is difficult because the clients are so vulnerable, the stress is not for everyone, but end of the day .. I’ve never felt more rewarded in my life. Highly recommend!

I worked with ACSS and loved it. The manager was great, willing to help cover shifts and supportive. She listened and was always there. The recreation coordinator is a good person as well.

Active Care Youth & Adult Services offers a fast paced career where you can learn so many new and wonderful things about supporting complex youth in care. They have a person to implement training and 3 CPI instructors including one Advanced CPI instructor. They have a debrief team to follow up after incidents to make sure staff are ok as well as open lines of communication including a dedicated on call management team so there's always someone to talk to. If you have experience working with at risk youth and want to make a career of it, this is the place to be. You could have a long lasting career as a front line worker or advance into management if you want. The opportunities are here. I have no regret coming to work here. Are there challenges? Yes! Is it worth it? Absolutely!

This place is a good example why private care places have a bad reputation. The company is too cheap to hire a nurse so no nurse monitoring them or looking over people giving their medications. It’s too bad because the care aide staff are good people, but the manager sits on her phone all day playing on Facebook or spends 5 hours gossiping with the recreation person who doesn’t actually really do anything with the people who live there. They usually roll their eyes when people show up for the planned activities. The owners are so overwhelmed with the massive growth of this crumbling company that they don’t even know what goes on behind closed doors at the care home. If the government looked into this place it wouldn’t stay open let’s just say that. Go work somewhere where you are valued and they follow real government rules.

care aides are paid below the average care aide wage, and are expected to do med pass, ADLS, cooking, cleaning and recreation. They also do not do scheduling by seniority so don’t get your hopes up for any good hours. Management for the senior home are lazy and spend their time on their phones and the owners are greedy and don’t care. Not a good place to work. Care aides work so hard for make sure the patients are happy but burn out is a huge issue at ACSS.
Points positifs
the patients

Owners don’t seem care about anything but Money coming in so they can continue to live luxuriously, while the youth and seniors in their care are overlooked. Management on the Youth and Senior side do whatever they want. Will hire anyone with zero education and no proper Follow through on qualifications. If you don’t fit in or Management doesn’t like you they will snub you during shifts, cut your hours or eventually find reasons to let you go. There is no seniority as it is a private company, so don’t count on job security. Improperly educated staff administrating medications with no nurse direction and providing care to vulnerable people. Highly recommend looking elsewhere if you prefer to be a respected employee.

Sadly, management is weak. They can be immature. They do not know how to manage people. They ignore employee concerns. They ignore employee stress. They appear to be interested in money more than people. Many coworkers have quit in frustration. Some managers talk down to their employees.
Some managers know how to lead, and are compassionate. These good managers are in the minority in my opinion.
Points positifs
Some good coworkers.
Points négatifs
Lower management is incompetant. They often tell lies to their employees.

This job was way to stressful for me, having young managers telling you how to talk, treat the young youth we care for. There is no compassion shown to the kids they are just a pay check for the company that takes them in, the poor youth are treated like criminals and are treated like they are in jail.

I would not recommend this place to anyone. I can't think of one good thing to say about this company. Practically everyone from front line workers to management have no education and have no idea what they are doing. If you want to be put in dangerous situations and have no help, this is the place for you. Very questionable decisions from everyone. Scheduling is another can of worms, unprofessional and rude. My opinion find a company that cares about their workers and their youth. It may be better than minimum wage but I can guarantee its not worth it.
Points positifs
you get to eat free food with the kids
Points négatifs
uneducated with no common sense

Workers are forced to take shifts that they do not want. Pay and workload do not balance especially if you work 24 hr shifts. No proper management channels and if you have a problem you’d rather keep it to yourself as reporting it is a waste. Workers in the field of working directly with the youth are not compensated enough as it is a very tiring and mentally exhausting job.

Not worth your time. Go else where. They don’t care about you just themselve. They hire because they are desperate. If you are married put your marriage first!

This is a good company to work for, I would recommend it. The staff are very friendly and helpful and provide a good opportunity to learn. The main drawback is how long it can take to complete the required background check. However, if you can stick it out for that to be completed, there are lots of opportunities to move up within the company.
