Terrible work environment

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
Most enjoyable part is the kids. Management not helpful, lazy, poor communication, terrible personal image. Very poor relationships with schools, and staff. Left to deal with bullying from school staff, no management support.

Points positifs

working with kids

Points négatifs

Too many to mention

challenging but rewarding

This is a challenging but rewarding job. I've developed great relationships with most of my co-workers and the kids and parents. Our top priorities are the health and safety of the children, and making sure we have a warm, welcoming play-based environment. My supervisors encourage me to learn new things, and take on extra responsibilities.

Under paid for company expectations of employees

For a very low wage of $15.80 an hour, management demands so much of their employees. Too much micro managing going on, enough to make employees feel incompetent.

Points positifs

Split shift.

Points négatifs

Pay

Learned alot, people I worked with were great

The people i worked with were good, but was not a team effort. No one wanted to help one another instead there was an atmosphere of cut throat and one upping eachother!!! Its a child care for goodness sakes! Only those that were good friends with someone at head office were promoted and not on merit. I have worked at large corporations before, nothing like this! I say for ECEs , work here, get your experience and get out!!!

Points positifs

Benefits

Points négatifs

The management treats shows favouritism and does not do anything when complaints are made.

Used and abused describes my experience working at UCCC, as well as different rules for different people. (staff). Supervisor and assistant supervisor rarely came out of their office and didn’t even know who I was talking about when I expressed my concern for a very troubled child.

Points positifs

It’s a job

Points négatifs

As already stated

Relaxed workplace with fun games and gym and table tennis

Lots of management turnover. Overall, not stressful, relaxed. Only stressful when the manager came in. Even made the kids feel stressed. Management too focused on playing by the rules to the tee and not the well-being of the children.

Management is very unsupportive

Management gives only negative feedback and never says anything positive about your efforts, no matter how great you are doing. There was constant harassment by my immediate supervisor. I was new to kindergarten, but this was not taken into account. I ended up quitting abruptly, as the job was toxic to my health.

Points positifs

the children, the breakfast and snacks served to the children

Points négatifs

the management

Productive

Enjoyable for those who love to be surrounded by kids who are en route to developing their skills and growing up. Things that I've learned include that children learn best when there are no boundaries for them and they can interact with one another.

Not good place to work

It was a large agency so it was very professional environment and room for growth. but management was not fun to work for. I wouldn’t hear back from Supervisors, coworkers were really personal and mean. I was fired without just cause, my supervisor would go behind my back to ensure I would feel.

Points positifs

Salary, benefits

Points négatifs

Horrible. Harassment. Fend for yourself.

THIS IS SOLELY BASED ON MY UCCC LOCATION Fend for yourself. No cares about workplace harassment and you cannot talk to supervisors because they do not care either. Was promised 15 hours/week at $15/hour WITH benefits - didn't happen but everyone hired after myself received this. Co-workers call children, families and parents names in private, making fun of and putting them down as well as new and supply staff members. Was thrown into the supply position without basically any training (especially in class as I didn't even know about how the attendances work or where anything was [specifically diapers, changing equipment,etc.] and I was not even told about my lunch break and almost worked all the way through it due to the lack of communication). Spoke to my location lead about the harassment and told me to fend for myself, stand up to her and tell her off instead of making the appropriate approach to the fellow co-worker. This led to the lead having favoritism of my fellow co-worker which led to SEVERE depression, anxiety and eventually my resignation. I was FORCED to go to work with a very high grade fever, vomiting and severe diarrhea. I was denied money that I WORKED for, because of false "rules" and "grace periods" that was never communicated to myself OR my team lead. Lack of Support. Very Unorganized, Unprofessional, Horrible.

Points positifs

the kids, split shift

Very supportive environment

The fact that we get paid sick time and paid vacation is huge. Overall as a RECE this is a great company who truly values their employees. Management is always asking for our input. They have made a lot of change regarding the input that was given to them. Also I have found they have always been willing to listen.

Points positifs

Paid sick and vacation time and good benefits

A good start.

This is a good start for those who are newly graduated. The split shift is nice, as are the benefits. However, offsite management seems willfully ignorant to the issues their staff face while on the job. Summer camp was a disaster with a huge lack of support from management, leaving many staff mentally and physically exhausted. Don't stay longer than you have to - there are better opportunities that will treat you better and allow you to advance.

Points positifs

Split shift bonus, benefits

Points négatifs

Lack of support

Fun and hectic place with lots of kids.

Really fun place to be in, enjoyed going there four times a week, especially the trips. Extremely hectic and loud sometimes, but overall good experience and got my volunteer hours.

Points positifs

Free snacks and trips

Points négatifs

Long hours

Supportive, encouraging and trust in staff

I've been working at the company for more than 3 years, supervisor and director were always being supportive for professional improvement. Work life balance is a big thing in the organization. We don't have friends at work because they are all families!!!! A lovely place to work at!!

Points positifs

benefits, positive atmosphere, open communication

Not a good place to work due to Management

A certain member of management does not care about the staff and has great influence over other members of management. If management is the bully, you have no one to complain to. If you voice your opinion or ask for fairness, you will be out. You will not be called for shifts and you are let go in a rather sneaky way which is not within the limits of the law but somehow he gets away with it. The children and staff at the centers were great to work with.

Points positifs

The children and staff at the centers

Points négatifs

Unfair management
Avez-vous trouvé cet avis utile?

over worked, under paid- rarely acknowledged for efforts

- turnover is ridiculous - no formal training; sink or swim type of job - supervisor will make or break experience - Expectation of work quality and time to complete, do not match- be prepared to take work home- WEEKLY. - Company recently implemented sick days- yet there are hardly enough supply staff to accommodate ONE centre, never mind over 80 enters. - shared space environment can be a very positive experience - the families and children pull on your heart strings- they make everything else worth it - company advertises advancement, with supervisors who have been with the company for over 30 years , however, do not encourage you to move forward. On more than one occasion, staff have been offered a job position they showed interests in ONLY AFTER resignation.

Points positifs

employee benefits

Points négatifs

lack of support
