Winnifred is a company that you can enjoy and also get some disappointment in the past. But now the CEO is changed and she came with a very good strategy,
1. she did changes in the administrative part and the changes peace of mind to the workers.

2. Workers have learned the actual freedom in the place of work and has created confidence in the life of employees.

3 Work has now become an enjoyable place and the hardest part has become easy because of the spirit working as coworkers.

This review is for DAY PROGRAM, though it may also be useful for those looking to work in the home side of things.

One big pro of working here is that you dont have to worry about your job security or hours once you are in. Pay gets sorted out quickly when you join, and you get lots of paid training.


Cons


1. You may find there are few staff who have stayed who were hired AFTER the wage freeze in 2016. People who have been here a long time are making a better wage, and will likely have an easier workload than you too.


2. High turnover - constantly varying degrees of short staffed. This impacts you and your clients - 3+ clients to one staff, outings cancelled.


3. No "true" breaks. You eat lunch in the lunchroom with your clients (phone usage frowned upon) and normally wont get a 15, even if you work 7.5 hours. If you "need" your 15 you find coverage, which can be a challenge in itself (See 1 & 2). Not sure how this is allowed per labour standards.


4. If FT, you wont get benefits for half a year.


5. The actual work isn't for everyone. You are caring for and supporting people with a developmental disability, for an employer who has a huge tolerance for high behaviors. You will have clients who make you uncomfortable, who will hit others and yourself, are very manipulative and have high behaviours, some to the point other clients paying to be there are negatively impacted and staff are getting burnt out. To no consequence to them, since it's a part of the disability they live with. You, however, will have to do extra documenting and possibly additional training

Tons of QUALITY in-house (paid) training, you will gain so much different types of training and experience.

Lots of hours to pick up and wonderful people to work with and for.


You know you have found a gem when over 50% of the folks you talk to about the job, have been there for 10 years, plus.


Relaxed, fun and spontaneous environment.


I wish I had found this job 15 years ago.
Points positifs

The Hours are great, but the pay does not reflect the work that is put into it. I was also told that the annual rate was frozen. Also, it seems to be hard to advance in this type of organization. This position doesn't even require a degree so if you are looking for work with a degree you might want to look elsewhere. Lots of staff work there too, so it is hard to know everyone's names and who they are. Days are honestly not set in stone. The schedule could change on you last minute and you wouldn't even notice or be told until you check it. Overall, their intentions are good as an organization and their purpose, but the nature of the job is tough when they have so many individuals and little staff to do the work.
Points positifs
Location is relevant, teamwork is awesome here, good hours
Points négatifs
Lack of Organization, short staffed, hard to advance, Bad Supervisor, pay could be better

Welcoming clients,taking their hats,coats & mittens off & hanging them,securing their lunches,reading their communication books, offering them tea, toileting them,carrying out various activities ,assisting clients with lunch,writing in the communication book,wearing warm clothing, helping them to depart with all their staff, documenting electronically and reporting.
Learned that it is important to give clients endependence of making their own choices.

Management-supervisors had conflicting ideas on issues related to clients.

Co-workers had a high degree of team spirit.

Being given clients with different needs for the day e.g.one may want to stay indoors and need close supervision while the other one wants to go out when the worker is instructed not to go out was hard.

Assisting clients to achieve their goals was the most enjoyable part.
Points positifs
previous training, experience in special needs education and fluency in english was an advantage.
Points négatifs
failure of the supervisor to be realistic on a given situation.
