Experienced and dedicated workforce to humanitarian needs

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
I have worked with the Canadian Red Cross since 1986, took a two year hiatus and returned to support the COVID work. This is an example of how experience and dedication are awarded and recognized by the organization. It has always been a place of serious business coupled with fun loving people committed to the work.

Great experience

Great place to work. Interview is quite rigorous but the job and work-life balance is worth it. Adequate training is provided and salary is quite decent.
Avez-vous trouvé cet avis utile?

Job and site supervisors are good. Corporate structure is complex and difficult to navigate. Lack of communication between departments.

Helping people is worthwhile and appreciated by immediate management and clients. Being part of a team brings comraderie and is energizing. At higher levels there is much confusion and miscommunication, including a high degree of uncertainty and expressed frustration. Working as a contractor rather than a permanent employee makes securing finances and housing difficult, due the potential risk of loss of income.

Points positifs

Team building, travel and new frequent new adventures.

Points négatifs

Lack of job security as a contract worker, difficult to secure finances or housing, lack of stability, lack of authority to enact change/fix problems

Meaningful work but work exhausting, toxic work culture

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.

Points positifs

You get to meet lots of wonderful volunteers.

Points négatifs

Toxic internal culture. Old school patriarchal style management. No transparency.

This particular Red Cross location lacked compassion, respect and a honest process

During my work experience at this Red Cross location during a stressful time in the City of Calgary, the gossip, administrative dysfunction, lack of nonbiased and cultural insensitivity were extensive. Lack of compassion and empathy was incredible. It was such a shock as the Red Cross has an international reputation of a humanitarian organization. That they demonstrate and embrace value-based leadership- regrettably, the Calgary location does not.

Points positifs

Some of the staff and many of the clients

Points négatifs

Disfunctional leadership and their promotion and validation of gossip

Values Volunteers

This is an agency that values their volunteers and uses their talents in Disaster situations. I love volunteering with them. They provide any training that you may need. This position requires you to be empathetic to others without discrimination

Red Cross Youth Leaders

I would be assigned to a school and present to elementary schools about bullying and how to prevent it and intervene in healthy ways. I took the training course which taught me a lot about bullying and how we should handle it as well as how if it isnt confronted early on it can cause permanent problems in the future. The management was good, I made friends with both the managers and my peers. The hardest part of the job was getting over my fear of public speaking which I got over pretty fast. The best part was seeing how the kids used the information from the presentations.

Points positifs

I got to work with kids and share knowledge on a safer environment for them.

Points négatifs

The only thing was they only got together once a month.
