I was in the July-September 2018 placement in the Barista's Training Program at PCRS in Surrey,BC, at the Guildford location. Before, During and after the program the staff and the people you meet stick with you. The staff is pleasant, energetic, and passionate about the work they do. Judy and Rob were the best facilitators and working with the Vancouver PCRS was a hoot and a change of scenery. I still get praise from people about this work program. I picked up valuable skills in this program that it would have taken me years to learn. The hardest part of the job is dragging yourself out of the bed in the morning, but to be pleasantly surprised by the facilitators energy and smiling faces.

My review of this company is excellent. They have excellent staff, and so the youth they work with always meet their goals. They also provide a safe space for the youth to be comfortable wile attaining their goals.

This company is racist/discriminates even though their website says they value and welcome individuals of all ethnicities. The HR views your name on the resume and discards it based on the individual's name despite their qualifications. DO NOT work for this company. I've heard many bad things about them. Too much gossip, high turn over rate and staff are not professional. Some of them are bullies.

Horrific training. Unorganized. OHS - Safety concerns. Management needs training. Toxic work environment. Completely surprised after hearing good things. Like walking on egg shells. Other colleagues I know in organization having concerns and doubts and are waiting to jump ship.

Dont want to be all negative... some really great people... but organization needs to better understand whats going on. Worst place I ever worked as far as disorganization and toxicity and distrust. Felt like I had to model healthy management and Im not even a manager.
Points positifs
People are trying their best
Points négatifs
Distrust, poor leadership and communication, lack of training, lots of 'sick' employees

Management are not very versed on how manage staff. They are micro mangers and do not promote trust. Also, not enough staff, so one has many responsibilities, which will cause burn out.

To be able to be there for the youths at the hardest time of their lives and buliding a relationship that can improve their lives for the better is extraordinarily rewarding. Some youths are harder to reach than others but give them time and eventually they will open up, there will be hard times but ultimately you are doing this for them not yourself so the job satifaction is high.

Also been working with pcrs for more than a decade. Have seen them take on various new contracts throughout the years I've been with them. It is because of certain demands of these contracts, there has also been changes in management. Unfortunately, I have seen first hand of these mismanagements, especially those who somehow worked their magic and moved up quickly without much experience in non-profit or social services industry in general. Staff then become "replaceable" and many end up going on sick leave due to burnouts and "cattle-herding" of clients they do daily on the job. And why there are many turnovers. These highly-valued staff end up working for partners, rival agencies or finding much better work elsewhere outside of the contract. Pcrs either need to advocate in changing the policies of these contracts, obtain contracts that actually meet the "values" the company claims to have, trash these contracts altogether or they will lose their most invaluable asset - highly skilled and experienced workers. Mind you, not all of pcrs work environment is like this - I am mainly speaking of their "newer" contracts outside of youth and family services. People who work in these specific contracts will know what I am speaking of.
Points positifs
If permanent or term/contract employees - flex days, benefits, average vacation to start with, living wage
Points négatifs
Mediocre pay, contracts, some untrained or inexperienced management staff that shouldn't be working in social services

Management is very bad with low learning and knowledge how to deal with their employees. If the manager likes one because the employee always agrees and compliments the manager, he/she gives this employee the recognition and promote him with low caseload for this favorite employee, Sometimes I think this is not a Canadain organization. It is similar to organizations in underdeveloped countries.
Benefits are ok but salary is low when compared with other not profit

organizations.

This organization is often practicing politics.

I do not recommend this organization to anyone who has solid values and morals.
Points positifs
Benefits
Points négatifs
Bad management, job stress, low training, politics.

PCRS does a great job of basing its services around the needs of the individuals that its staff serves. There is a strong culture of going above and beyond to support participants, who are often facing difficult life circumstances. I'm always impressed by the range of services that PCRS offers. Management is supportive and the organization seems to take efforts to function as more of a community organization than a business. Although the job can be challenging at times it is rewarding, and I feel supported by colleagues at PCRS. One drawback is that the pay is mediocre. However, the defined benefit pension plan helps offset this somewhat. Overall, I think PCRS is a great place to work.
Points positifs
Focus on helping participants, positive culture, supportive staff
Points négatifs
Mediocre pay

Worked here for almost 10 years. Frontline staffers like myself receive little to no recognition, especially when we work with vulnerable persons. Some management have little knowlege of different contracts and think they can "make up" rules so that they have power and control. Although this organization supports anti-bullying, they sure do it quite often in some management levels. The "favourite" ones are protected, even though they barely do any real work but chat all day compared to frontline staff that deal with real people's lives and lived experiences. They claim they have a liveable wage but the cap is not enough for the amount of work frontline staffers put up with on a daily basis. Caseloads are high and thus many utilize sick days and leave due to stress and burnout. And dont get me started if you're auxilliary. You are treated like commodity, very little formal training, no vacation or paid sick days, in lieu of benefits and management do not give a reasonable timeline if a contract is extended or terminated. The management obviously looks out for themselves and their "favourites". It's true that most quality emloyees may love their job but will leave the company due to their boss.
Points positifs
Flex days, vacay, benefits, liveable wage, team
Points négatifs
Management, leadership, very little internal training, low pay, start as auxillary
