Workplace environment requires commitment and dedication. Worth it!

I am grateful for the opportunity to work at Williams Marijan & Associates. In my few months as an employee I have been in growing in a number of skills such as communication (verbal and written), multi-tasking, time management, ability to prioritize, attention to details and collaborating with others. As a scheduler my time is spent mostly working independently in a shared office space. Working in a teamenvironment has allowed my transition into this work space to be supported with insight from colleagues with more experience. The training process was very straight forward and I think was the best training experience I have ever gone through. I felt adequately prepared and eased into actually scheduling. Every day I get the opportunity to connect and build relationships with various associates, families, clients, and social service providers. As someone coming from a Child and Youth Care background the role of a scheduler allows me to utilize my knowledge of the field and expand on it by learning more about the needs and gaps that exist in social services. As a scheduler I have observed that the associate position allows associates opportunities to grow their skill set, challenge themselves, and work their own schedule. In my role I have encountered dedicated associates who have pushed their comfort zones and capacity in order to deliver the best possible support to our clients. I have witnessed members of scheduling, service coordinators, and other members of management support associates in navigating tough situations whether it be personal or professionally related.

Points positifs

Working here will give you many tools to make you more effective in this field

I have been an associate with WM+A for approx 3 years and have never looked back in regret on my decision to work as part of this amazing team. Nothing is perfect, but WM+A has always looked out for me and my interests - even in situations of disagreement, WM+A always sought resolution. The teams I worked on in the field varied, but I have build so many connections and learnt so much from my experiences working alongside them. The training you receive stepping on board is bar none and the experience is what you make it. Some of the most passionate people I have found in this field are were through WM+A and the flexibility they offer is phenomenal. You wish to work a simple 40 hour work week? Or perhaps your pushing your limits and trying to best 110 hours weekly? Maybe your even taking a break because you have a personal issue or covid is preventing you from working temporarily? Either way, WMA has adapted to my needs in every one of those situations as I experienced them over the last 3 years without question or hesitation,

Points positifs

Great team, very passionate and smart people to work with

Points négatifs

Can be difficult as job sites vary, some job locations are farther away than others

Rude managers, corrupt management

Every manager at this place has its own rules. There is not a clear policy and procedures. Rules Can change a daily basis. You will be treated without any respect if you say no to their request. You have to make them like you; otherwise, they won't treat you well. My mental health deteriorated when worked for them because they are very sneaky, disrespectful, very corrupt people.

Points positifs

You can be a self-employed

Points négatifs

No rules, favouritism, no support, rude management, toxic people

variety of work opportunities

I have been working at WM&A for almost 2 years now and it was been a very positive experience. The company has a wide array of contracts ranging from 1-1 home support, school based, mental health, hospital and residential treatment settings. The breadth of opportunities available allows me to find the right fit for my skill-set and the volume of work which is available is quite impressive. The company has a tier one online scheduling system enabling me to book my availability and clearly manage my work load. The trainers are engaging and helpful and they make mandatory training classes as fun and informative as possible. Furthermore, the wide array of short seminars and training modules ranging from FASD to ABA illustrate the company's dedication in ensuring associates have exposure to evidenced based approaches required to succeed in their potential placements. The management team is pleasant and respectful and will have open and honest conversations with you when any potential issues occur, leaving you with a clear idea on how to prepare for situations in the future. In addition, the management team is forthcoming in sharing feedback from their customers and it is appreciated when you are validated for your work and efforts.

Helping people with exceptionalities

I been working at WM+A for many years as Child and Youth Worker, providing service for children, youth and families with complex needs. Usually, we work in a variety of settings such as group homes, hospitals, school and community-based programs etc. WM+A became one of the best companies in Canada providing professional help to individuals who have social, emotional or behavioral issues.

Points positifs

Flexibility in work scheduling, opportunity to grow professionally. Support and encouragement from the management and colleagues.

ideal position to build experience and develop clinical skill set

My passion is working with children and families facing high needs and multiple stressors in various settings, including schools, hospitals and community settings. wm and a provided me with these opportunities. wm and a provided me with excellent opportunities to grow as a person and build experience and develop my skills. Through the experience I gained I was accepted to do my MSW from which I recently graduated. If you already have a job, working for wm and a will provide you with flexible opportunities to add to and build on your current knowledge and skills. When I faced challenges (what job does not have its challenge-challenging clients, challenging environments etc?) office staff were always around if I needed to debrief. The opportunities for additional training and workshops were very welcome and excellent! Although I no longer work with them, I remain grateful that they helped me get where I am today. The experience certainly contributed to me getting into the TDSB first as an EA, then as a teacher, and also as already mentioned, into Social Work School.

Do not work here

My mental health deteriorated quickly while working here. Management is terrible and does not treat their employees as humans but rather a machine that needs to work quicker and effeciently with no incentives or empathy. Scheduling coordinators steal hours from schedulers and write passive aggressive emails to you privately before they pull you into into a super meeting with upper management to talk about your work performance. Save yourself the stress of working here. It's not worth your mental health.

Points négatifs

Inconsistent schedule, terrible work culture, tense environment, under appreciated staff

It is with concern that we read this statement. A scheduling role supporting our clients and community partners requires responsiveness, problem solving skills and a team approach. For that purpose, we support a culture of team-ness with open communication, an Employee Assistance Program and many wellness opportunities and support. As such we don’t understand the references you made but invite you to contact us directly.

Many pro's and many con's

Pro's: -Set your own schedule - Flexible: You don't have to take shifts that are offered to you, and you only need to be available to work one shift per month if you have too -Offers a lot of trainings and workshops at a reduced cost (CPI, SMG, ABA workshops, etc) -Scheduling and management are supportive and put in effort to help you learn and figure out how to work best with a client -Alot of clients are great to work with, some shifts are actually very easy -You can get supply shifts, one off shifts, short term contracts or long term, which is great! So much variation! Con's -Many client's are aggressive -I personally don't get alot of shifts, HOWEVER, I think this is just because I have told them I don't want to take very aggressive clients (which they have many of) so if your ok with aggression, you should get lots -you are an independent contractor, which makes taxes a bit more difficult -Schedulers can be VERY rude when you have to cancel a shift due to sickness -Sometimes the information you are given about a shift/ client is inaccurate (However, I just deal with this by asking them a lot of questions about the shift when I get it, so for me it's not really a problem) -The main person you ask for advice (like your supervisor, but not technically) about clients communicates in a confusing way and I often don't understand him (but this might just be me)

Good for someone who wants a flexible schedule

you can set your own schedule and there are lots of hours available. there arent benefits and schedulers can b mean if you cant make a shift due to being sick. i know a worker who left to take a job somewhere else because they were continually rude to them when they had to cancel for work.

Flexible schedule, but difficult staff to work with.

Pros: - It was great to be able to set my own hours. - I liked that training was made available through the company. - You can network with other agencies by taking a variety of shifts. Cons: - Schedulers often gave out the wrong info about shifts, which put staff in precarious situations. - Little support for CYWs and was left to fend for myself. - Schedulers were difficult to deal with and were rude. Many complaints from my peers about particular schedulers who would lie on CYWs.

Good place to work

Great company to work for. There are many shifts to choose from, so it can fit anyones schedule. No pressure to take shifts and the pay is very good. You choose how much you can make in a month.

Flexible hours

I was very nice to be in charge of my own times for my schedule. The only downside was no reimbursement for any training or police checks that employees must undergo.

Understanding and helpful

WM+A has the most understanding and supportive management and team I have ever worked for or with. They are always willing to give advice or listen. You are able to build your own schedule and can work as much as you feel like you can handle. All they ask is that you keep your schedule up to date and work minimum one shift a month. If you need a mental health day, they encourage it because you can't help others if you aren't taken care of. The only down fall is that you don't get benefits but between the pay, team, and clients it is made up for! I love what I do and wish it was closer to where I live, but I have never been happier with my place of employment which makes my drive each day worth it.

Points positifs

Clients, Team, Management, Pay, Schedule

Good starting job

Hardest part was you never know what to expect. Most enjoyable good learning experience. Was left alone with clients, some were really aggressive and had to handle situations fast.
