    Pros

    You can do anything you want! They are open to new projects and ideas. Great location in Montreal. Open minded fun people to work with.

    Cons

    It is a little non-shalont, often times I did not know what to work on and was just wasting time. I could not exactly pin point what Alternatives actually did or what it's main ideals were. I also do not speak french very well which caused me to be left out of much of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on creating a vision for Alternatives which sets a direction for the organization. The organization needs more focus. Also, invest in team building and leadership training.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Alternatives in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was hired after one interview I believe. I worked at ECAP, the manager was impressed by dressing up for interviews. They are looking for people who are hardworking, conscientious and actually care about the job, as they generally get employees who are anything but. If you are professional during the interview you'll probably be hired. I always thought they should have you spend time with clients before hiring, but currently you just interview with the manager and sometimes assistant managers.

    There are a lot of different positions/group homes in the company, so often you can easily switch locations.
