Avis d'employé sur BC SPCA
It's not glamorous, but it's certainly rewarding. Amidst all the poo and laundry and rotting fish is an opportunity to hand-feed baby birds, squirrels and raccoons, and sometimes the perk of watching those animals that you helped nurse back to health be transported back into the wild.

The BCSPCA is a place that is great for students and young adults to begin to learn how to act as an employee. It’s a very safe place where everyone working and volunteering there have common interests and overall has a very calm atmosphere.
Can volunteer at any times throughout the day

Wonderful staff, and management. Work environment is positive and supportive. It's great to feel like you are making a difference in the community as well. Sad thing is the BC SPCA being a non-profit obviously doesn't have a large budget to pay their employees, but given that this shelter is in one of the most expensive cites in the province and one of the largest shelters they should most definitely be paying their staff more. Receptionists make a decent wage but Kennel assistants make an unlivable wage. The emotional toll this job has on you is not compensated enough. There is also no opportunity for advancement. There are two positions available, kennel assistant or receptionist. The turn over of staff clearly shows how unsustainable the job is unfortunately.
