higher management was awful
Caseworker (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB21 mai 2019
I liked the people I worked with directly, the higher management wasn't the greatest, I met the greatest people during my years, but the higher management shouldn't be managing the organization because they do not have integrity or fear of God.
Points positifs
great co-workers
Points négatifs
worse higher management

The Mustard Seed was great Company!
Technician (Employé actuel) –  Calgary, AB11 décembre 2018
It was fun working with The Seed and been working for more than 2 years with them. I have an excellent manager to work with and reliable colleague that will help you all through out during my tenured days. I was inspired by their programs and visions in helping the homeless and giving them hope to get back on their feet to start a new. Unfortunately I have to leave the company due to changes of management which most people are forced to resign.

A typical day
Receptionist (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB23 août 2018
A typical day would include answering the phone and handling donations from people who walk in. Also would include explaining to people when their clothing drive/store would open as well as when food will be served

Terrible leaders
Frontline (Employé actuel) –  Calgary, AB4 août 2018
A client or employee would get more support from a Sargent then at the mustard seed. Don’t waste your mental health or spirit on this “Christian Organization”. Over worked and underpaid!

A fun place to learn and serve, with all sorts of people coming to volunteer, and to eat.
Volunteer (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB25 juillet 2018
The Mustard Seed is a good place to learn to serve and to work with all types of people. It's also good experience for learning to handle food, work quickly, and take special requests.
Points positifs
You get fed after working, and the equipment to work with is provided along with clear instructions.
Points négatifs
There is no place to sit afterwards, and there's a lot of cigarette smoke, which is not good for those with breathing issues or other sensitivities.

Good Team Terrible Supervisors/Management
Front Line (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB28 juin 2018
Great team to work with until it comes to the Supervisors and management. A lot of passive aggressiveness with them. Indirect communication etc. Self care is not encouraged and when you need a day off you will be judged or there will be comments like"do you actually need a day off". See alot of clients get set up to fail (move into the building then be evicted due to their mental health etc. Really a toxic work environment and the pay isn't enough for it,

Save yourself the damage.

Amazing place to volunteer
Volunteer (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB13 février 2018
Volunteering here was one of the highlights of my life, everyone there was so friendly and accommodating, you were able to see the ins and outs of an NGO, and left feeling accomplished and proud of what you've done.

A lot of talk, little action
Middle manager (Employé actuel) –  Red Deer, AB3 février 2018
With lawsuits and gossip galore: management with little to no capacity...

The above sets the tone for their core values to be muffled out. Three hour meetings that are based completley on ego stroking disfunctional politness. Christian, two faced, biggots and not enough busses in the city to throw them under. Kind of the foundation of the culture I had to endure for almost two years.

Overdoses, physical assaults, verbal assaults - daily situational challenges from the public being served and backstabbing pettiness from the staff internally.

The Director rarely ever at work and a bunch of mindless opurtunists unwittingly following a spinelless leader. This group of people are the reason Christian culture is so diluted.
Points positifs
Supporting most vulnerable
Points négatifs
Top down, needs to be torn down and rebuilt

Poorly treated and paid; Frontline staff
Front Line Worker (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB14 décembre 2017
If you don't mind commiting half of your week to a organization that pays you low wages and no benefits, all while under the threat of injury, assualt, and gang related violence... This job is for you.

If you do mind, then you may want to consider applying as a practicum student and leaving the workplace for somewhere better (after you complete your degree/diploma).

The only positive might be if your recieve a salary job, because they set you up in a cushy office with a good benefit package and tight-knit job security.

I removed myself from the workplace after just 3 months, and am fascinated people continue to work there. You got a good supportive frontline team that are in the same boat as you. Which helps.
Points positifs
Nice team
Points négatifs
Low pay, no benefits.

Not an equal opportunity employer
Frontline Support Worker (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB5 décembre 2017
The management of that time was not accommodating and that annoyed more than a dozen workers and they left. They were racial and favoring the employee who did not have skill to perform the job responsibilities.

Street level
Street level worker (Employé actuel) –  Red Deer, AB28 novembre 2017
Working as part of the street level team has been amazing! Every day is different and I love all of the relationships I have created. It is a blessing to serve our population, always rewarding helping those who need it. The staff is so kind, everyone is compassionate and works hard to fulfill the needs of our guests. There are many programs offered to assist guests.

Poor job security, No benefits for frontline staff.
Frontline Worker (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB30 octobre 2017
I worked at the Mustard Seed for about 5 months before leaving due to their minimal financial and health benefits. I received as little as 18 hours per week, with minimal hourly pay for having a degree. Unless you are applying for a full time position, do not waste your time.
Points positifs
Kind, caring and friendly staff.
Points négatifs
No job security, no benefits, low pay, poor management, high turn over rate (for good reason).

Not bad for non profit
Team Lead (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB8 mars 2017
Pros: Christian company that is openly evangelistic. Staff are caring and compassionate. Most if not all have a real heart and desire to serve the vulnerable and disadvantaged population. Many front line staff work extra for no benefit in order to serve the homeless

Cons: No focus or end goal by senior management. Very poor communication between management and front line staff. Management often makes knee jerk decisions that often result in negative outcomes for front line staff. Job security is based on favoritism and loyalty. One bad quarter of donations and jobs are eliminated. Unless you have a positive personal history with your supervisor or senior manager your job is always in jeopardy. Very political workplace. New employees should be careful about what they say and to whom.
Points positifs
flexible hours, above average benefits for full time people, good salary in the non profit space
Points négatifs
high turnover and low morale, poor job culture, no job security

A very busy environment
Christmas Project Coordinator (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, Alberta20 février 2015
Greatest part of my day was working with the Volunteer Resources team as they shared their office with member of my team plus members of HR, facilities, finance and donor relations.

Cohesion, communication, joy, helping others

Hardest part of my job was being hired 1 month late which left no time for staff and myself to become acquainted, and then had to put out fires and quickly set up the biggest events for the year.
Points positifs
Team mates
Points négatifs
Lack of time for proper preparation, company lacked preparation of contract staff arrival
