Staff are not supported by management. Staff often pitted against each other. Management intimidates staff with loss of hours or employment. When I was hired the Exec. Director at that time was very supportive of staff and clubhouse members. That changed when she left and a new ED was hired in 2011. Since then everything changed and not in a positive way!
Good wage and benefits (union)
Staff are not supported by management
Most relaxed place I have ever worked! Genuine people who absolutely care about your mental health and well being! I have the ability to learn and grow each shift I work there! Always bettering my self and my life
Work hours, work environment, coworkers
Working with homeless and Drug addicts could be a lot scaring at times, and also fun-filled. We housing independent homeless and drug addicts and we make sure they are saved to live together under one roof without panic or fear. We provided assistance to the overdose and reminded those who needed to take medication when necessary.
10 hours at night

My managers are very flexible in allowing for growth. They see the skills you possess and are willing to work with you to implement them.
Really enjoy my job. The experience I have had thus far allows me to use my talents to help my clients. Management is more understanding and accommodating than any other work place I have encountered. Truly an amazing place to work.
They don’t appreciate their employees. Clients are great and community events are fun. Sometimes over worked and schedule issues. You see so many good employees leaving the company soon after starting. Unorganized. I put a lot of time and effort into the company and didn’t feel like I was valued. Management purposely left me out of events near the end of my employment.
very regimented at the main office, some managers easier to talk to than others. lacking an understanding of workplace mental health however they are always looking to "do better" and improve themselves. Staff are incredibly hardworking. Workload is demanding at times. Made a lot of great friends working here.
I held, night shifts for about 2 years, then moved into case management for another 2 years and then moved to evening supervisor for another year. The people served were real, fun to get to know and have goals set for their improvement of living. It was a great place to get to know staff and be available for tenants 24 hours a day.
Character buliding, great experiences and skill bulding.
Intense momments with tenants in problem solving.
Due to the high stress nature working for their Housing First initiative, the pay compensation does not seem adequate given the demands of the job and security of the staff.
Lots of job supports
Insecure working areas and low compensation
I have earned a great deal of experience related to mental health and addictions. I work along side very caring and supportive staff who is understanding and willing to assist whenever needed.
Lunch and learns, supportive friendly co workers.
can be hectic schedules
Working for CMHA Peterborough was the worst experience of my career. The pay is terrible and they can't keep staff so it's chronically understaffed. They constantly put you in unsafe working conditions. They always want staff to volunteer hours of their time. Staff morale is non-existent as is proper training. I worked there for 1 year, made a mistake and was fired and chased out the door in tears. Absolute horrible HR. There were maybe 2 people I liked working with.
The residents are extremely polite and decent human beings who deserve the right to a satisfactory quality of life, that of which my co-workers and myself deliver to them on a daily basis. Management is the best i have ever worked with as they send out emails daily regarding anything and everything the organization adapts to and makes each and every employee feel as needed as the other, no matter the position.
free meals, fun atmosphere
not enough hours

doing a job I love
very part time, no benefits, low pay.
I loved working for CMHA. On a typical day I ran the drop in club house and the work programs independently. Clients came in to chat and participate in monthly activities. I facilitated group interactions, activities, and conflict resolution. I also helped connect clients with resources and provided peer counselling. I learned a lot about managing large groups and how to cater interactions to different personality types. This allowed me to find a way to incorporate everyones needs into a cohesive and functioning support group. The management and coworkers were great. They were friendly and helpful. The hardest part of my job was leaving. I only left because I needed to move back to Ontario to complete my university degree. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing real changes in my clients and the vast improvement of their group dynamics.
No organization, management doesn't have a clue of what they're doing, they also have no respect for their workers, worst employment atmosphere that I've ever been a part of. Note, just one support worker has been with the company for more than 3 months, that should give you an idea of how much staff loved the job or how much management loved the team.
Not a single thing.
