Its a leadership heavy agency with very little support of the front line workers, their job satisfaction or even the clients alot of the time.More training for all staff and some humility in Leadership.
Staff are pretty chill and supportive. Sometimes there will be moments when a situation occurs where you have to be quick and responsive rather than reactive, where your mental and emotional stability is challenged and crisis intervention skills are needed.
Respected in the community because we offer helpful resources.
Dealing with degradation and undesirable circumstances.
I worked here for almost 5 years. Many coworkers actively using narcotics during shift. Management plays favorites so if they like you on Monday. Be prepared to be fired Friday.
Too many to list
Large organization, always hiring. Culture can really vary site to site. Good place to start if your new in the field. Upper management levels are really disconnected from the reality of their worker. Not a lot of advancement opportunities, except into overworked underpaid Coordinator jobs. BCGEU union.
Good entry level positions
Little advancement opportunity

Assisting clients to reach goals is personally rewarding. Unionized worksites; job security is good. Some worksites have strong teams; others suffer from dysfunction. Poor job training for new hires. Few continuing education or advanced training opportunities. Advancement often dependent on favoritism--not merit. Poor management training and development. Organization focusing on growth rather than development. Job has many disagreeable factors. Client program development is deficient.
the job can be rewarding but frustrating. depends on the site, some sites are better than others. your position can be taken away just like that! Some Stewarts supports management more than the actual employee they like to try and give you a lower wage than the actual wage, to save money and staff use to have free meals.
consintly learning, free training
management need improvments, supporting their staff, Make less compare to other organizations, unfairness, toxic, need to kiss a** just to move up, they dont care who they hire causes higher toxity in the work place
Lookout is a good company to work for. I'm looking for a dat shift because I've been working graveyard shifts for over a year now. I have almost 3 years experience now working in the very heart of homelessness in Vancouver and Surrey.
Loved the work but at the end of the day, I had to think about my own safety. The best thing I had experienced working with them is that my coworkers were always into helping each other. Great team work
Great people to work with
Toxic as you have to deal with people with different mental/drug challenges
As a cook you get to provide healthy, meals to people with addiction and mental health issues. Help steer them in the right direction, lend an ear, talk with them when they are having a rough day
The leadership consist of corporate slime balls who are more interested in expanding and making names for themselves than actually helping people. Services suffer because of corporate, standardized approach. Lots of nepotism and little room for advancement unless you are in the inner-folds of the cult of Shayne. Do not question, put up with degrading working conditions and watch out for the walls have ears!
Working here was great at first and would be great for someone who is willing to constantly work 16 hour shifts. Staging is horrible and managers do not support their employees when no one shows up to relieve you, they just expect you to stay late. The only way to get a promotion in this company is to have a friend or family member on the management team. The nepotism going on here is ridiculous.
Most of the other staff are awesome and the clients can be amazing
