I work part-time for Clothesline Operation and it is great. Very friendly family atmosphere. Everyone helps you out, the Regional Management, Office Manager and drivers -great crew. The Charity has been around for a long time, but you really get an understanding of how things work, where the money goes, and how much public support is needed. Keep supporting the clothesline operation and stamp out Diabetes
No Permanent Office Locally
I have worked at Diabetes Canada more than 10 years .Worked with great supervisors who are very supportive. Learned a great deal attending their seminars and trainings while volunteering from doctors ,dietitians,nutritions and colleagues .An interesting place to work.
Friendly and supportive staff .
unpredictable hours which goes very low in summer, little room for growth
Senior Staff do not interact well with teams under them. Out of touch. Have unrealistic goals and in my experience each department is 'siloed' making it difficult to cultivate relationships/cross promote the organization externally..
No expectation to stay late. Good work / life balance.
Hard to feel pride in your work due to high operational costs, a lot of donor money is wasted on huge executive salaries and frequent mistakes.

Throwing hundreds of bags of clothes in hot containers and trucks... in and out of truck about 75 times a shift... lifting and stacking uneven items into your truck..
For a good cause
Pay not great... hard work ... driving in traffic all day
I have learned so many thing working with this company and working four year with them motivates me to work more
I have been working with this company as a contractor for almost four year. People are very nice i would love to recommend my friends to apply for driver job
Manager say some thing and dispatcher say other. They change plan and shedule daily. They call driver frequently. There is high pressure of keeping the target. End of the day driver does not have energy to do any other thing,Very stressful job for that reason they advertise for job every month. Edmonton management is horrible bez they dont know what they are doing.
HANOVER ,The position for driver has been in continuous search for more than 18 months, I talking with several peopleworking before and do not recommend this job, tiring, without benefits, insecure plus a very bad working environment ... not recommended,
There's no formal training, a typical day was figuring out what the heck I'm doing and then asking people for money for a cause which was lost in the backward-like mindset of an outdated unevolved organization.
Way too much labour and for $19 an hour it's not worth it at all considering you don't get any benefits or advancements.... management is poor here ;they look at you as a number not a person. They are very disorganized as well.. Don't work here you're better off working as a garbage truck operator making anywhere between 60 to 70 thousand dollars a year with full benefits and a pension

I was the summer student for Diabetes Canada, my responsibilities were to go across Brandon and do presentations about diabetes to different community groups such as retirement homes, community centers and the Addictions Foundation. These responsibilities took place during the day, on days where no presentations were scheduled my hours would be later in the evening where I helped outreach to the community looking for donations, volunteers and partnerships. This included in person, telephone communications and emails. I also helped organize and attended health promotion events in the community. Overall the experience gained from working at Diabetes Canada helped strengthen my customer service, communication and interpersonal skills.
