Avis d'employé sur Croix Rouge Canadienne
It is a nice place to work with people
The Red Cross is a good place. The Red Cross help a lot of people. a lot of older people would not be able to get to there doctor's if it was not for the Red Cross. They have there problems just like every body but it's a good company.

They only work one shift
It's hard to make a living on my wages
A typical day starts with me going into the office usually about 30 minutes before my shift starts and reviewing where I will be picking up and dropping off clients that morning. Once I have reviewed that information I go out to the bus and perform my circle check of the vehicle. I fill out my CVOR forms and submit them to the office. Then after completing that I would start my scheduled pickups The hardest part of the job would be the early mornings start up times. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with people and talking to them.
Early start times
The Red Cross operates according to rigid hierarchy. It's a very middle class culture & many employees aspire to higher positions in the organization so there's lots of competition. There is little to no transparency on the part of management. Nobody can speak honestly about internal problems. Donors must be protected at all costs from hearing about internal issues. The pay is ok, the work is meaningful but they really work their people too hard & provide little to no training.
You get to meet lots of wonderful volunteers.
Toxic internal culture. Old school patriarchal style management. No transparency.
