Please Don't!
Child Care Therapist (Employé actuel) –  Consecon, ON14 novembre 2019
If I can give Bayfield a Zero. This place should be shut down. The youth that reside here are treated poorly, with absolutely no support and NO TREATMENT. The staff have no training and have no idea on how to handle the diverse trauma the youth have experienced.
This place breaks every labour law, and every child abuse law. For your own mental health STAY AWAY.

Terrible environment
Child Care Therapist (Ancien employé) –  Consecon, ON5 novembre 2019
Bayfield has been the worst job I have ever had. Yes, it is amazing experience. After working here you can literally handle anything thrown at you. However, the management treats you poorly. When going into work, you never know when you’re going to leave because chances are you’ll be forced into 24 or 36 hour shifts and management won’t work with you to fix it. As a floor worker, you also have to fill all of the shifts for some reason, yet they do have managers.... awful environment all around.

Awful, dangerous, no support
Childcare Therapist (Ancien employé) –  Consecon, ON24 octobre 2019
- awful
- no recognition or acknowledgement
- no room to grow in the company
- no training provided to staff except physical restraint training, and medication training if you are full time
- unsafe and dangerous environment
- staff around you are like 19 and have no experience
- no actual therapeutic treatment or program in place, you are literally just told to keep them busy - no matter how badly the kids treat you or anyone else. glorified babysitter basically
- pay is TERRIBLE , my god its not even close to worth it
- you never know if you will actually leave on time because they might force you to stay (no overtime pay if they do, no perks)
- they say they have a program to support you with taking courses for professional development, after 10 years, i never saw them give anyone any money for this
- they say they have a program for gym reimbursement, its pennies on the dollar and they make it a pain to actually get it
- they do not value their employees at all or put any money into keeping them or training them

I could go on but Id run out of characters, moral of the story, run from this place. Find something else. Get your experience some where else. I promise you, you are better than this place. Your mental health will thank you.

Part-timers are treated like garbage.
Youth Worker (Ancien employé) –  GTA, ON29 août 2019
Your experience here will depend on whether you're a full-time staff or a part-time staff. Within each home, each client has a primary worker that is basically their own full-time staff. The primary staff are the only full-timers within each house and they get treated very well by management, both in terms of pay and respect. If you get in full-time at Bayfield, you'll be fine.

The part-timers however, get treated like garbage. Our opinions and feedback don't matter at all. We are expected to attend regular team meetings to talk about the clients but our voices are never heard. Management only cares about the feedback and viewpoints of the primary workers and the primary workers have full say and control over the direction that the clients are going. The pay for part-time is the one of the lowest wages you'll find anywhere in the field. We've got primary workers gloating to part-time staff about how they're making 22 dollars an hour while the part-time workers are only getting 16. It's disgusting honestly because the part-timers are doing about 98% of the same work as the primary staff and yet, there's a massive difference in pay. Overall, I didn't feel appreciated or respected at all during my time here. Management has a VERY negative perception of part-time employees even though without part-time staff, the houses wouldn't be able to run properly.

So far Bayfield is a great place to work. As a new foster parent, I feel very supported by staff and management. My immediate supervisor is really nice and she responds to my emails and text messages very quickly.

Great Experience
Youth Support Worker (Employé actuel) –  GTA17 août 2019
At Bayfield you are given a front-line experience working with clients through their day-to-day lives. It allows for you to learn and collaborate with the support systems that are involved with the clients, as well as an amazing opportunity to build strong and positive relationships with them. This has been a fantastic first job in the field of child and youth care. The clients, foster family, and team have and continue to be wonderful to work with.

Good Support and Flexibility
GTA (Employé actuel) –  GTA15 août 2019
I have worked with Bayfield for approximately 5 years and have enjoyed the people I work with and the clients. While the job can be difficult at times considering the behaviours, the management team is supportive and welcoming which provides a positive environment to work. There is a lot of freedom and flexibility with programming for the clients, allowing staff to be creative and use their skills to support the clients.

Good overall
Youth Support Worker (Employé actuel) –  GTA15 août 2019
Working at Bayfield has been mostly a positive experience. Each day is a chance to help support the lives of truly excellent people who are in unfortunate circumstances.

Management is mostly supportive and works to provide every employee with what they need.

A typical day consists of lots of encouragement to complete daily routines, and the modeling of life skills. Additionally, a vehicle was required to transport clients to and from locations.

Certain locations have seniority issues, where the method that one person has might conflict with another who has been there longer. This is the hardest part because the work revolves around people and their lives, and open communication is essential.

Review of working at Bayfield
Youth Support Worker (Employé actuel) –  GTA12 août 2019
Working with Bayfield is a great stepping stone for anyone that is just getting out of school in the helping profession. You will gain a lot of experience and learning while working with Bayfield. Management is very helpful and always a phone call or text message away. There is an inconsistency with hours and work week. This is not the typical 8 hour or 6 hour 5 days a week type of job. This should be put down as a part time job with the potential of full time hours based on the need of the children or your availability.

Youth Support Worker (Employé actuel) –  GTA12 août 2019
Very nice team of individuals that truly care for their clients, their clients are ALWAYS number one, which I truly appreciate. You are able to provide your own availability which is great and you also learn new things everyday about your clients which in return builds experience.

My Experience............................
GTA (Employé actuel) –  GTA12 août 2019
A typical workday varies base on the home/program you work. Working at Bayfield has allowed me to gain valuable experience with vulnerable children and youth. I have gained so much knowledge with individuals that have many medical diagnoses.
Management is understanding and finds a way to meet staff needs while maintaining the focus on the children and youth in care.
Bayfield is a multicultural environment that is accepting and respectful of everyone. The hardest part of the job is when a child or youth is upset and the antecedent is unknown and they are not able to verbalize what has upset him/her.
The best part of the job is that you are making a difference in someone live, each time you work with them. This is also a great learning experience to grow in the field.

It takes a Village
Residential (Employé actuel) –  Consecon, ON29 juillet 2019
Bayfield is a fast paced environment that is filled with variety but also scheduled day to day activities.

With the individual work and the team work of each job Bayfield makes up a small village that is working with vulnerable youth to better their futures.

Everyday may not be instant gratification but there are many little moments that make your job worth it leaving you with fulfillment and accomplishment from your career.

untrained, inexperienced staff and poor and absent management
CCT1 (Ancien employé) –  Consecon, ON26 juin 2019
Was there three years and management will use you in whatever way you let them to until you're completely dry. They'll lie and cheat you in whatever way possible and if you say no, they'll essentially outcast you. There was 450+ staff in and out of the facility in my time at Bayfield. There are approx. 35 positions.

One of the former staff had several allegations against him by a female youth and quit, lived with this youth in a romantic relationship only to later be in Napanee Jail for Child Luring. Bayfield had all the warning signs and turned a blind eye to this, as per usual.

Bayfield doesn't train staff either than a single shadow shift and a few hours of policies and procedures. Their screening process for staff is almost non existent. A lot of mentally unstable folks get hired and do some very questionable things. Most staff hired are 18 or 19 years old and can barely tie their own shoes, never mind implement treatment plans for at risk youth for the 6 to 8000 monthly fees.

They cut the food budget and have nearly no programming for the youth outside of the facility. It's basically the last place a child should go to for help. It's like hiring an 18 year old baby-sitter to deal with a behaviorally challenged youth without camera supervision, allowing them to physically intervene when necessary and medicate them when agitated or struggling to cope.

There is minimal treatment going on and very few qualified staff (maybe 3 or 4 competent staff) to implement any sort of treatment. It's essentially a holding facility for children in the system to earn Larry
  plus... Sanders and his ownership group a quick buck. They're completely detached and absent from the daily running of the facility. The owners don't even recognize or know which staff have been there 20 years.

You'll be told that you must stay past your shift by the lazy and extremely unmotivated Support Staff. They'll essentially break every rule in the book but tell you that it's fine because they haven't been caught by CAS yet. Support staff will have you run around Consecon like a chicken with your head cut off while they sit inside of a van or their personal car, and take all the credit for your hours of counselling.

Numerous youth had close calls to the morgue while I was there. Most of the time all of the incidents could have been prevented if there were competent staff being paid appropriate and proportional wages.

Wages are awful. There is literally no advancement. They'll lie and tell you that there is hope to gain supervisor roles and string you along until you're fed up.

Union is completely useless. A total waste of your hard earned money.

They've had the same issues for over 10 years and they've not really changed a single thing. In fact, they cut a few positions then gave raises to some Dinosaurs that leave sometimes four hours early in their shift instead of actually teaching and training staff.

There's such a lack of care and competency at Bayfield that you'll be astonished and completely baffled by your experience. They'll hire anyone with a heart-beat and without a criminal offense, so you'll get hired most likely. You'll also quit within a few weeks. My biggest regret is not quitting in my first 3 months and slaving away for the unappreciative supervisors and ownership.

Great experience, great staff for the most part.
Child Care Therapist (Ancien employé) –  Consecon, ON20 juin 2019
For alot of young people in this field Bayfield is usually the first stop for those living in the area. I myself learned alot working there and made life long friends with the co workers I met along the way. I couldn't imagine staying there for any longer than a few years as it is easy to get burnt out in this environment. There was always an us vs them mentality when it came to management but overall I would say this place is a great stepping stone to get some experience under your belt.

Good Entry Position -- Terrible Employer
Treatment Counsellor (Ancien employé) –  Consecon, ON19 juin 2019
For recent graduates -- it is a good stepping stone to gain valuable work experience to assist in landing bigger and better jobs but in and of itself Bayfield staff are underpaid, overworked and the employer does not value or appreciate it's staff.
