The company is clearly committed to providing support to its clients and to do that, they really try their best to ensure that the staff is happy and cared for. Management is very devoted and they are doing a good job with training enployees. Everyone is friendly and willing to help oneanother. Will be very sad to leave to go back to school!

Very unprofessional place to work. Team leaders hire their friends and family members and management doesn’t care at all. Many staff have no experience in the field at all but still they get job and they don’t hire experienced external applicants. This place is a joke!!

I worked here for a year and the job culture was ridiculous! So much gossip (including the supervisor gossiping about staff). The clients were nevwe first priority abd training was minimal. Would not recommend. Do not feel safe here.
Food, good coworkers
long hours, dishonest, unprofessional management, underpaid
Residential Manager (Ancien employé) – Calgary, AB – 21 septembre 2018
The whole experience of working there was chaotic. There are a lot of middle management type positions which seemed to lend itself to a lack of accountability. No one really seemed to know what their role was. They provide such a diverse range of services they seem incapable of excelling in any one area.
Room to advance
Low wages, even within management positions. Stressful.
Office Staff (Ancien employé) – Calgary, AB – 12 octobre 2016
OK place to work. Pros include: job security and work-life balance. Best part about working here is the clients we support. Working in the office is OK- lots of office politics at play. Get friendly with the right people and you'll have opportunities for career advancement.
Job Security, Work-Life Balance
Lack of Career Advancement, Lack of diversity in Management
The company is effective and active to reaching the goal of their clients
Residential Support Worker (Employé actuel) – calgary,Alberta – 6 novembre 2014
At work am able to support my clients in a respectful and secured manner in attending to their daily need. I have learnt to enjoy and participate fully in supporting my clients in their set out routine that promotes their daily living. The Management is wonderful being client orientated taking care of the health and safety of both clients and staff. My co-workers are good team players, helping each other to achieve and reach the goal of the client and company. The hardest part of the job is having to miss a day not being there to support my clients. The enjoyable part of my job is to see my clients smiling and fulfilled at the end of each day.

Child Support Specialist (Ancien employé) – Calgary, AB – 23 janvier 2013
A typical day at work was in a residential setting in a group home. We would sit with the three girls and usually watch a movie, go for a walk to the park, or some type of community activity. At lunch time we would eat together and then do a counselling session between the girls to talk about any concerns/comments they had regarding the house. Family visits usually happened at night time where the girls would either bring their family over for a supervised visit, or they would go their and a social worker would go with them to monitor the home visit.
I learned a lot at this job. I found working with the victims of the situation was a lot harder for me than working with the offenders. I also learned a lot about how much impact something happening at such a young age can really affect the child for the rest of their life.
Management at this workplace I felt were never really around. They worked in head office and never stopped by the homes to check on the children or the staff members.
The coworkers were amazing at Supported Lifestyles. All the girls working in the home with me ended up becoming very good friends of mine. We were a very supportive, happy team and we always tried to support each other in our decisions. It was a wonderful place to work.
The hardest part of my job was hearing all that these innocent children had had done to them at such a young age. Also, some parents never were able to change and overcome the obstacles that would help them get their children back. It was very hard to see that some children we'd had in our custody from aged 1 right up until 18plus... years old. When they become teens it's incredibly tough to see that they are still with us, and in their minds all they can think is that their parents no longer want them.
The most enjoyable part of my job was when a child was "allowed" to finally go home to their parents. It was amazing to see how much some of the parents worked and changed their lives around to get their children back in to their custody. It was very rewarding for us as staff because we felt we had kept them safe, and now were sending them back to live a healthier, happier life.moins
free lunches/dinner, some kids who were there for a long time you really do grow close to, watching them grow, having them reunite with their family
very long hours, some weeks i did 120 hours for overtime, having children never be taken back by their parents
