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
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.
