Changes
Sad but favouritism is given and others are booted out. Made to feel incompetent when you have years of experience. With no cause minds are changed daily without team collaboration.

Decent for a starter job in the field
This place was very wishy washy. Great experience to learn from. However it’s very hard to work in an environment and industry where u have a o care for Kids but your not allowed in anyway to care about them.

Amazing organization to work for
I worked for Strive for almost 4 years, and it was an incredible learning experience. Everyone is super friendly and supportive. The HR team is fantastic.
If you are looking for a place to grow while working with smart and fun coworkers, Strive is the perfect organization.

Great Work Environment
I am happy I got the opportunity to work in such a professional organisation. I had access to great and very helpful trainings and workshops. I consider my experience at Strive as one of the most important career milestone.

Completely Horrid
Expect you to be a slave to the company. Have such a low rating that they had to "rebrand" (change their name). Hound employees on stress leave to return.

Management
Management spends a great deal of their time eating at the Casino during work hours. Your lucky if you call their office and they answer, maybe they have call display?They do not set a good example of taking employees seriously when an employee puts in a bullying/harassment complaint. They will drag out the process to suit their own schedule and leave the employee emotional upset. They need to update their skills on the interview process for situations like this.
Points positifs
Unionized
Points négatifs
Preferential treatment to one person at the expense of another

Management was very challenging with this company. However, the wages are higher and the clients are a pleasure. There are many homes that need workers, and their is always penalty of work.

Caring Managerial staff
- Friendly and support staff
- Adequate resources to do the job

- The hardest part about the job was lack of organization coming from head office

- Most enjoyable was the team work ethic from staff

Very fulfilling workplace
Taking the time to enhance someone's life who has different abilities in return gives the supporter new and positive appreciation of what's important.

At times the emotional output can be draining but so much about this work fills the tank back up.

Worst job
Not a fun job, to be honest. They make you work really long hours and don't pay nearly enough for the what they expect of you. As well, the co-workers aren't the friendliest.

It's not bad, could be better.
Typical day involves:

Outings with clients

Personal Care

Daily Journal Writing

Incident Reporting

Maintaining the cleanliness of your worksite


What I learned:

MANDT training provided

First Aid Training provided


Management:

I have a part time line and work with Adults in the Day Program and Group Homes and also pick up shifts in their Children and Youth Services Department so I can compare and contrast management.


Adults - current manager, works hands on and trains new staff hands on but, I feel their 4 hour orientations are not enough.


There was however another manager in the Richmond location who did a 4 hour orientation for me to work as a casual worker in a Specialized home in April 2016. After the 4 hour orientation, the manager actually worked with me for the full 8 hours of my first shift in this specialized home so I learned the clients personal care routine in the evening right away and also her typical routine during the pm over the weekends.


I thought that this manager went above and beyond to help new or casual workers for his site. This is one of the reason why I kept picking up shifts in this location. Sadly, this manager resigned and was replaced by a newbie.


Childrens:


Managers do not train you hands on, they ask the senior staff to do their trainings without management oversight. This is ok I guess as long as you train with a good senior worker. However, we all know that not everyone is always good at their jobs even though they have been their for awhile which can lead to discrepancies in the training and no continuity of care.

I would love to go back if a caseworker, trainer, or home evaluator position ever opens
Excellent job, excellent management, working with Strive Living was a personally rewarding experience that helped me decide to follow this path in life. I was given a leave of absence from Strive Living to complete a university degree in Ontario, and met with family issues that prevented my returning to BC; otherwise, I would still be there. I cannot think of a better way to live than helping others as Strive Living does.

Even though this writer worked specifically with adults and children prone to physical outbursts, i received excellent training and support by management, and recognition for effort. Sadly, a minor disabilty limits my ability to counter violence now.
Points positifs
Everything, (but pay could be a little better.)
Points négatifs
compensation makes living in lower-mainland BC difficult.

up to date for related trainings to staff
The company provides necessary trainings for the workers to be more competent in their chosen field. They are very flexible and accommodating to day-off/vacation leave's request.

Interesting,challenging, good pay
Interesting, challenging and stressful to look after a child with disability. More attention to the client. Learned to handle client with low and high sugar level by injecting insulin. Receive support from the management. It's not permanet in a sense that the management can remove the client anytime.The pay is good and no tax.
Points positifs
Good pay and no tax
Points négatifs
Remove client anytime from the foster parent

Good company, could be better.
I really like Strive and what they do in the Greater Vancouver area but they do not offer enough support to their CYS positions. High turn over rate makes it hard to get into a groove when treating clients.
