Solid Organisation helping many people in Queensland. They have a grants team which shares the load and are very successful at gaining grants in Queensland.

Disappointing to work for, not only for employees but for the client as well. Made redundant at 34 weeks pregnant after complaining to head office about my direct management being inefficient.

We're sorry that you feel that way; however the Service that you worked for was permanently closed, and all permanent staff were made redundant.

I learned a lot of new skills about myself that I can use for my future. it was a great time and flexible hours when studying uni and a great way to kick start your educational career.

The people I work with are really groupy and tend to bunch off together almost ignoring any new staff. I Love the children though and they keep me motivated to work there.

Poorly managed.
Poor communication.

A lot of volunteer hours.

Over worked.

Under paid.


The only few good things are that I get to instruct what I'm passionate about. I love to see the improvement in children.
Pros
Working with Children
Cons
Management, a lot of volunteer, no communication

Would not recomend this company.
Because it's a not for profit the money only seems to be going into managers and very few programs.

The students that came through Midland were disengaged and often had issues, these I will not discuss.

I don't think there is enough care by management towards these children, I realise they can be very difficult at times, but to pick and choose who you like and pay attention to is ridiculous.
Pros
casual staff and kids were terrific
Cons

Great place to work, something different every day, a chance to give back to the community and help children grow.
The youth programs are a great way for kids to relate to each other and learn social and personal skills. It is very rewarding to see the at risk kids completely change their lives and give back to the organisation that helps them.
Pros
Great work environment
Cons
low pay rate

Early starts and late finishes with lots of time in between. Great indoor/outdoor time. Hardest part of the job was catering to so many different ages of children.
