A little unorganized for the field they are in. Would have liked to have seen more leadership from management, along with an understanding of Indigenous culture.

I worked there a while ago in accounting team but right after two weeks I noticed something is not going normal with accounting department. Very soon I saw the accounting management team don't respect their employees so you will get blamed for nothing in their weekly meetings (absolutely nothing) even though your work is updated and going smoothly. During of one year of my working with hollyburn I saw several accounting members resigned of their job and the main reason was director of finance attitude who had the poorest communication skills I'd ever seen before. No matter how much you work hard b/c at the end you'll be ignored, disrespected and degraded, so better to leave there just for taking off too much pressure of your shoulders.... Trust me nobody even cares about what is going on in accounting Dep.!!!
Points positifs
Good kitchen Stuffed
Points négatifs
Too much Stress in Acc. Dep.

Would highly recommend to those newly entering the field. Relief work allows you to work in all the homes and programs - I was able to attend all the orientations & therefore work full-time hours. Gained many references and connections through Hollyburn.

Overall great company as they do help lots of clients there, but never accept any accounting position in this company unless you want to end up being one of future clients of Hollyburn. During couple months of working there I saw several accounting/payroll professionals come and go and all of them complaining that Director of Finance doesn't have basics of ethical communication. No matter how good you are, you will end up leaving the job with lowered self esteem.

I worked with many amazing individuals and I would gladly work with them again. The client's can sometimes be extreme but the teams are good and I felt supported by management.

Supervisors bend the rules a lot to benefit themselves. Clients beat the workers a lot and it is expected to "just take it" as the workplace practice. The company is nice and the staff are pleasant but there are a lot of unprofessional and gossipy people. A lot of nepotism as well. It's a very unsafe place to work depending on your site, and if you work with many relief workers.
Points positifs
Lots of Overtime
Points négatifs
Long hours, and abuse from clients

Love this agency they have been amazing and I am so fortunate to be apart of this dedicated culture! The Special Needs Department is so committed and would do anything to ensure the youth and adults needs are met. It’s a very dedicated team and the growth over the 27 years has been outstanding. I have read some of the complaints and that saddens me that some may have not had a positive experience but they have been here for almost 30 years so that does speak volumes.
I urge anyone to get what is needed to get complete because we always welcome dedicated hard working people and have seen tremendous growth and opportunities for these individuals.
Points positifs
Very dedicated amazing management and staff
Points négatifs
Agreed increased supervision needs to happen to support empowering a stronger culture

Accounting Dep: High level of stress of accounting managers will make you run away from there.
Believe your self, you will find easier and more professional jobs are waiting for your experience and hard working out there.

If you're a student looking for flexible hours, or a foot in the door to your field, this is a good job. Since they're commonly understaffed, they will generally hire unqualified people. Within the company, there's much room for advancement (because of high turnover), but many people stay away from moving up because of the tedious workload with very little pay increase.
Forwarning, this job won't train you on site. It's extremely minimal and for the most part, they'll use their employees as bodies until they burnout. To avoid this, you need to beg supervisors to be scheduled with full-time staff who have the patience to train someone. Generally, management would rather blame and dismiss staff who have suggestions or complaints. Additionally, your hours/pay will often be fumbled, getting in touch with company payroll is extremely difficult.

This is a good job if you want extra work, but because of the culture within the company very little full-time staff stay over two years. I would recommend this company for someone's practicum, but no as long-term career.
Points positifs
At some houses, food is covered. Many discounted training opportunities
Points négatifs
unprofessional management creates consistent problems

Hollyburn was a great company to begin working with. Towards the end, I grew frustrated with saying the same things over and over again. Staff, Supervisors and Management would listen to you but not really hear what you were saying or do anything about it. I found that they were hiring more and more people who did not have a license to drive or any education in the field and would pay them more than those who have been working in the field and went to school for it.
Points positifs
Fed if working 24 hour shifts, lots of training opportunities, different opportunities
Points négatifs
Listening but not hearing staff, management is not accountable for their actions/words

As a relief worker, you get bounced around a lot, which can be a lot to learn, but there are well managed home and some that are a bit overwhelming. Management is supportive overall though they are frequently short staffed

I worked for the company for just over 3 years and realized that this is a company who does not follow policies and procedures. I would not recommend working here. The management was backed up many times when they where clearly in the wrong and client safety was often at risk. I am a woman of integrity and believe that client well being should come first. My safety was also put at risk and after the incident there was extremely poor debrief and the incident was 'swept under the rug'.
Points positifs
The clients are amazing
Points négatifs
Managment all around

I have worked for Hollyburn services for a number of years now. Started as a practicum student and was hired shortly afterwards. The work is challenging and not for everyone, working with some of the most challenging children and youth. The teams are supportive, supervisors are approachable and management works hard to support.

I find that commited and hard working people are given opportunities to grow. Lots of opportunity for in house and external training.


There have definitely been hard times and difficult situations but I think staying commitment helps.
Points positifs
Good coworkers, pay is competitive, medical and dental, rrsp contributions, training, CARF acredited
Points négatifs
Occasional terrible co-worker, challenging clients

A company in the midst of rapid growth brings employee advantages and challenges.
Hollyburn has the making and vision to be an excellent organisation. However dramatic growth in recent years and a skilled labour shortage has lead to some growing pains.

Hollyburn offers a fair benefits package, a market average (all be it low) wage, room to move up the organisation and career advancement.

With this unfortunately comes high demands and responsibility, an impossible case load, constant staff turn over on the front line and frequent changes in managment.

This is one of the most challenging and in turn rewarding companies in the area.
Points positifs
Exposure to a vast variety of skill sets, fantastic clients
Points négatifs
Un-supportive management, poor job culture, cannot accomodate self-care

upper management passes the buck and takes no responsibility.Under qualified staffing hired as a body is better than no one attitude putting good employees safety at risk daily.
under qualified staff are using restraint techniques unsafely and upper manaagement is aware and ignores requests for assistance to supervisors that are over worked and under paid. oveal, I would NEVER reccommend this company and am aware several previous employees suing for wrongful dismissal.
Points négatifs
long hours, highly aggressive, dangerous work environments

The clients you will serve will be unable to share their gratitude for your service and if that makes getting up in the morning meaningful for you, then this is a great place to be. Like minded individuals work in the programs to provide great care for those with special needs, youth needing a little support and guidance and seniors needing extra compassion and support.

Hollyburn Family Services is one of the worst organizations I have ever worked for in this field of work. They're careless and have little regard for their employees and clients. They will use threats and intimidation to cover their actions when employees try to speak up. Their HR representatives are completely useless. They talk poorly about employees that get work related injuries to others even though many of those employees used the safety plans put in place. It's best to stay away from this organization if you're also looking for job security. There are many other great agencies around.
Points positifs
Great employees
Points négatifs
Management, poorly run organization.
