Probably one of the worst years of my life
Respite worker (Ancien employé) – Toronto, ON – 9 novembre 2015
Where do I begin? I had a horrible experience working here. I worked evening respite with youth, it was usually weekdays from 4-8, give or take. The management is horrible, very poorly run. The "supervisors" are all young people with no experience in the field themselves but have just managed to schmooze their way up. The way the supervisors treat the staff is totally unacceptable. God forbid you ever get sick! That's how my time ended there, I had really bad food poisoning and called in sick but was told I must come in anyways. I had never called in sick before and was always early for work. Upon arriving at work, I wasn't much help as I was throwing up frequently to which I was scolded for. The treatment of the staff is ridiculous, but don't get me started on placement students! They completely take advantage of students in the work place that are working FOR FREE. It's sad really... These students put in a lot of their time and effort but are still treated horribly by the supervisors and even other staff. The pay is terrible, may as well work at McDonald's, they pay about the same with better hours and fair treatment.
Close to the subway, good experience with ASD.
Poorly paid, unorganized, unfair treatment, hostile work environment, etc
