I worked here for a year but I had to quit due to management and my own health safety. As an older women, I was deeply concerned for my safety working here due to managements unprepared and unprofessional attitude towards workers / clients safety. If you care about people with developmental disabilities and want to make a positive impact in their lives ... Don't work here! Management is incredibly uneducated (many of them used to work at Woodlands until the government shut it down for systemic abuse of clients!) and they will use fear tactics to bully employees into submission. They will bully / punish you if:A) you advocate for clients rightsB) you advocate for your workers rightsC) ever question their viewpoint on anythingBeware! Beware! And beware! Not worth it, trust me.
Clients are great
Management, pay and hours
The job is OK and nothing special. Love working with residents and some of the staff are very helpful and kind. As I am worked for a few houses, I got to know many managers, staff and residents from each house and learnt a lots. However, the manager from Azure house in Richmond is very rude to the staff. I think he has mental health problem. I feel bad for those working at that house. Management is fake and pretend to care about the employees.
Every day in the morning, need to unload the truck to get room for today's job. driving 1 ton truck around the city to collect donation bins. pack all stuff inside and outside of the bin. Need to clean all garbage around the bin. After packing , stack the bags in the truck. Then drive back to warehouse. Sometimes you need to unload the truck If you finish early.

I like to work at DDA, the program is comprehensive, cater to the needs of people with developmental disablities
The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing clients enjoy their life like everyone else. The hardest part of the job is seeing clients get frustrated of not being understand.

DDA is the best company I have ever worked for. They value their employees & do whatever it takes to keep the culture a family vibe. The compensation is amazing, and there is plenty of opportunity for growth. The only reason I would leave DDA is to move to a different area.
They take care of their employees better than many others, especially if staff follow the guidelines. Strict rules regarding salary, overtime and fuel reimbursement are followed. Work safe coverage is given and senior employees are respected.
Comfortable work conditions in a friendly company
Sometimes one has to work overtime without being prepared or prior intimation
The Developmental Disabilities Association is a great workplace. I am surrounded by supportive people and always given the opportunity to advance my knowledge and skills with online learning courses and interactions with new people. Some days can be long and unpredictable, but making a difference in other people's lives far outweighs this.
* assisted and supported different clients in there day to day activities. ie, supported a lift required for an individual to use the washroom, helped remind others of day to day needs like proper food eating skills to avoid choking
Amazing clients to work with
limited career advancement
A typical day of working at home, is I would contact all of the people in our data base, and ask if they have any clothing to donatem, and house hold items, and if they do, I would arrage a pick up time for the donations, by letting the donar know what time the truck is coming, so that they could have the items ready in a bag outside on their front porch with DDA written on the bag.There were no co workers to deal with, because I worked at home. The hardest part of the job waswhen some of people who promised to donate forgot to follow through, even if some one else reminded them. But for the most part 86% of mine did follow through.The most enjoyable part of the job was when I would count how many promises of donations I got per hour, and if it totalled to 6.5-7 per hour then I knew I met my quota, and that I had done a great job.
not wasting time commuting
there was no cons
