The faith base is so watered down it barely exists at all. Staff morale was very, very low. Wages do not even come close to matching the workload. Resources are ridiculously outdated. Upper management is completely disconnected from middle management and everyone else. While they sit comfortably, we are told we should be there for the heart feel not the wages. Work spaces are overcrowded. If I could give a negative number as a rating, I would.
If you’re working nights in
their homes just know there are no shift differentials or weekends premiums here. Your paid $ 17.77 flat as fresher in the company slight close to minimum wage. Do janitorial/Nanny jobs eg preparing breakfast , make hourly calls, They don’t trust their employees...Managers come around the homes for overnight checks. Sad place . Look for other jobs not here
Being a Team Leader for the program was one of my proudest moments as a Social Worker. I arrived at work daily with a smile on my face as I knew that I was mentoring others towards achieving success within themselves.
Over the years, this organization seems to have gone down hill. Lots of politics in the office, cliquey. If you have an issue with someone and try to sort it out, it seems you get labeled a troublemaker.
Contact clients by phone or email, opening files, data entry, interview volunteers, sending job review and match ends by mail, filing, preparing packages for orientation, preparing reports, photo copying forms. Sometimes cover switchboard and help with walk-in clients.
I have experience in Administrative clerical duties, team work, time management, working with diverse and inclusive population. The hardest part of the job was recruiting volunteers. The most enjoyable part of the job was serving newcomer clients. They are always grateful to get some information, since they do not know much about the country.
Catholic Social Services was a very good employer and had I been able to stay working in the health care field I would of stayed with the company.
I worked in a fast paced home with a highly medical clientelle.
- management does not address concerns of staff
- if you bring forth wrongdoings they retaliate
- no regard for their clients well being
- unethical practices.
-management/HR does not follow their own policies
I do not recommend them, its very unfortunate that they do not follow the catholic beliefs even.
