Personal Support Worker in Calgary, AB
great place, bad management
the clients were amazing, the work meaningful. management forgot the mission and the important and made life hard for staff and clients. sometimes it felt management wanted you to keep the clients homeless so they could continue to make money. a lot of the times the place felt like a business to make money and not a place to conduct social work.

Amazing team support
Team spirit is highly encouraged and the support from co worker is amazing. The DI is an organization that makes family first a priority for employees. They also are ever changing in understanding the needs of all staff and truly do what they can to give supports in all levels for all staff in all aspects of their lives.

Was there a year, once covid hit they hired anyone that would take the job. No experience needed, no clue how to deescalate, just anyone!All the new hired were on contract which I'm sure is cheaper then permanent staff which was what I was. Got asked to come in for a "staff meeting" was handed a termination letter that stated " in light of covid 19, this was a business decision for the future" I requested more explanation and got emailed from their lawyer threatening me lol. Pay was horrible, zero support from the coordinator on day shift, favoritism was at an all time high, acting supervisor and acting coordinator had many complaints against him but was close with the actual coordinator. The place is all around horrible to work at in regards to management! I personally loved the clients because I build that trust and communication with them!

Worst place to work very clicke staff especially managers who are young and imature, no support , they claim to support you mentally which is not true !! If you like being verbally and physically abused by clients and treated unfsirley from Supervisors who favor staff than this is a great place to work !!
The entire experience was very heart warming as I was able to help prep food and serve a variety of people.
My overall experience was heart warming due to how I was able to take an act of kindness to help prep and serve food for the homeless, while leaving smiles on their faces e. It was an opportunity I was glad to participate.
