I got hired a week before camp because they were short staffed. They gave me online training I wasn't paid for and when I show up to the camp they took days to train me on how to safely and properly test my campers. We started to get about 45 mins of time off a day starting on the third day of work but then we were on the clock for the rest of the 23 hours and 15 mins of the day. I worked for 2 weeks straight and they logged 70 hours of work. When asked by senior staff about how i was doing, i gave my concerns and they did not listen, they shut me down and said "Well this isn't about them it's about you are your performance and honestly it's not great"
Not a bad place to work facepaced, supervisor are respectful, manager seems to be kind and respectful, workers are easy going, just a lot more labouring than driving but if you believe in the job it's really not bad
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what the heck I'm doing and then asking people for money for a cause which was lost in the backward-like mindset of an outdated unevolved organization.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
Working at diabetes Canada is an amazing experience and wonderful co-workers. Diabetes Canada is an special place to work the direct impact on the children living with type one diabetes is inspirational.
Diabetes Canada’s Improving Management and Prevention program (48% of program spending in F2018) advocates for policy changes that promote healthier lifestyles among Canadians. The charity reports to have advised the government on changes to the Canada Food Guide and the nutrition facts table on packaged foods. Diabetes Canada also offers online diabetes resources and information. In F2018, 2.7 million people visited the website. In July 2018, the charity published Diabetes 360o, a 7-year strategic framework to tackle diabetes in Canada. The report includes recommendations for governments and goals to work towards using evidence-based strategies.
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.
Often experience differing instructions coming from managers. Lack of alignment in leadership makes it very difficult to keep day-to-day operations running successfully. Lack of ability for advancement.
I worked as a summer student for Diabetes Canada and I gained a lot of experience in just the three months. Everyone that I worked for were extremely nice and welcoming and very helpful when I needed it.
Expected to be on call 24/7. Taking vacation days or even a lunch break is frowned upon. The company uses salary as a loophole for abusing employeees, forcing them to work 80+ hours/week.
Unless you like being micromanaged by angry, incompetent, toxic people, avoid this company.
This is without a doubt the most poorly run operation. One hand doesn’t know what the other is doing. Started out as a “contract” diver and the lions share of the operating expenses. I was supplied with a box of garbage bags and a storage unit. Most of the bins were a dumping ground for the people in town who were too cheap and lazy to take their stuff to the local dump. Nevertheless, I was expected to load up this junk in my own vehicle and take it to the dump. For this hard work I was reimbursed the dumping fee and paid $15, regardless of how long or how many trips it took. Which meant, many times I was working for less than $10 per hour. You are expected to maintain (empty) these bins 7 days a week. Be available with not much available notice to have your storage locker emptied. I signed a one year contract to do this and in less than 3 months, they went from paying me $1.50 per bag to a “by the pound” wage and then arbitrarily ended my contract to make me one of their part-time drivers - driving one of their trucks for no less than 12 hours a days on a gruelling schedule.
Wage is competitive
Management, payroll, etc. Extremely unorganized. They don’t care about the employee.
Diabetes Canada employees about Diabetes Canada culture, ... An enhanced learning curve on the value of research and education.if you keep your head up and work hard you'll be doing great things with then the cooperation
incoming talent is competent, passion for the cause, hard workers
incompetent leadership, no consequences for bad behaviour, misuse of donations, employees are treated as a name on a sheet, no respect for each other
They work you hard here. Its not unusual for you to work 12 hour days with an unloading of product in the morning then a very long day of driving from stop to stop until you are done a route then you might have to do another offload if they don’t meet the quota for the day. The routes you take vary which is nice but the full times get to pick the easy ones first.
High turnover rate means constantly understaffed and ask part timers to work full time hours but without benefits. They dont take care of their drivers, so if you get injured they still ask you to work these long days. They only care about their quotas. They pay decent but its alot of work for your dollar.
If you work hard they reward you with more work.
The people you work with are nice but you don’t see them a lot.
A great part job which you can do from your own home. The negative side to this is because you are seeking canvassers for certain areas you do receive negative feedback. You need to be able to not take it personally or you will not want to do this after the first week.
