Avis d'employé sur HOLLYBURN FAMILY SERVICES
Huge scope for growth and professional development
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.

Exposure to a vast variety of skill sets, fantastic clients
Un-supportive management, poor job culture, cannot accomodate self-care
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.
At some houses, food is covered. Many discounted training opportunities
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.
Fed if working 24 hour shifts, lots of training opportunities, different opportunities
Listening but not hearing staff, management is not accountable for their actions/words
