members of upper and senior management shouldn't of been in those positions of power. Staff continually rating out each other out to make themselves look better in the eyes of upper management. Supervisors strong armed into not signing staff off to protect their own jobs. Staff scared to speak up regarding bullying in the workplace.
Look elsewhere unless you enjoy being battered and bruised and leave with your confidence and self esteem destroyed. Staff and management been there too long- complacent, form cliques and not helpful to new employees
This was an amazing job and something g I am definitely looking back at getting into in the future. The challenges that the children threw at us was amazing the work never runs out.
A chance to change a young life, working with amazing people.
Initially I had a supervisor who was a complete bully. She brought me to tears more than once. I did approach her about it. She then ran to HR and provided a very different version of events regarding her behaviour toward me. When I finally got a new supervisor she was great but the job was very high stress with minimal reward. If we worked overtime doing admin after attending a crisis we didn't get TIL for it or overtime. Most of our team worked weekends and weekend nights just to keep up. No recognition from management. Horrible experience.
Good training offered by head office.
Management, hours, pay
I am so grateful for my time at Berry Street. Staff welcomed me in and I was lucky enough to have regular training to continue to expand my knowledge base and practice skills. The hardest part of the job was dealing with crisis. This, however, didn't occur to often and the training provided me with the tools to work in these conditions. Additionally, I felt extremely supported by the staff and managers and always felt I could express any concerns.
A great place to work, very client focused and professional. Great supports and supervision as often challenging work. I only left due to medical reason. Would love to work there again.
Great support, good staff development, professional
higher pay wouldn't hurt lol
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
