Great place to work now, although the first year was hard. There were ample opportunities to give and receive feedback both to direct supervisors and to management. The best part was working with the individuals and getting together on Wednesdays for music and lunch.
This was a job i hated to leave! Amazing staff! And amazing people! The pay was well! And the overall job itself was great! The only downfall is the hiring process! It took way to long!
People, pay, flexibility
Hiring process was long and unorganized
Focus on the active support of the client. Community awareness is given importance. Focus on unrequired qualifications. Trust staff very little. Very partial. The manager doesn't critically analyze the situation
clients are encourage to participate in personal care
active support are very unrealistic the staff records in their log notes

It gets harder when you are on-call worker and don’t have a personal transport but overall experience was great working vocationally ( day programs). The company provides more opportunities for workers to grow in their field of support. Having access to training to best their career professions .
The benefits are amazing, very supportive employer, lots of hours, decent pay compared to some big fish out there. I feel like I'm paid to have fun. The staff shortage results in exhausting long hours but the bonds and relationships I've built with staff and clients makes it all worth it. Just makes it hard to manage my family life.
Working for CLS is a such a rewarding job being able to work with diversity of people and always learn something new every day about myself and others. Knowing what they can achieved with my help. Also, working for CLS there are many perks such as being able to join with people have a good time by doing what they like to do such as art, exploring the community, cook together etc.
Hard to get in with the staff, tight nit and don't help or explain their computer work program, left me to fall through the cracks and as a result I was told it was me not able to grasp their computer system, and that I didn't fit in with the client which I was told by a senior co-worker they should of never put me with him because as a first time employee he was extremely extremely difficult. They letme go as a result. I felt it was one sided and they set me up to look bad and did not give me a chance to prove myself or let me explain myself just assumed it was the way it was.
got to drive around with clients
lots of reporting after work that you didnt get paid for, dont pay hardly anything for kms or gas.
This is a challenging, but rewarding job. Working as a Community Living Counsellor I have had the opportunity to expand my patience, time management skills, and compassion. This work involves long hours, which can be challenging, however, the work is extremely rewarding.
Very good with people with disabilities. One to one with them everyday even on weekends/ overnights. Taught them how to go on city bus, places where they desired to go to, and school/work.
Managers are okay ( They weren't good with adults with disabilities
they were a good company to work for, were accomodating and professional. I had the ability to develop my skills as a support worker in the field, the only complaint I had was the wage, not enough to live off of as a single mother of 3 children living in the lower mainland.
I fount my passion in this kind of job. I really enjoy to share time and smile of nature and happiness with all my clients. I learn a lot about people with disability or mental challenges, each individual are unique and need difference technique to approach. I always enjoy my work and always try my best to be good team work.
Enjoyable place to work. Clients were excellent and caring. Staff were helpful and caring. Lots of outings and good direction on duties and clear work schedule and responsibilities.
not enough hours at the time
Train very well. Do great in achieving goals . Have great impact in society. Great functions. Very involved with employees well being. Attention to deal is good. Protocols and regulations and procedures are well designed and followed.
Support work varies from person to person and location to location. In general there is opportunity to get experience in community living support, but the industry is shifting. The base wage and raises are slow to rise.
I enjoyed being apart of a fabulous Program that made Supports for persons served individualized. Each person has supports that align to their wants, needs, likes and dreams. Very empowering!
