Other Employee Reviews for Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa

  1. Foster Care Case Worker

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    I was able gain experience in the child welfare field. Each case is different. I was able to supervise visits between the child (ren) and parent (s). I was able to attend court hearings and watch the interaction be the caseworkers, lawyers, judge and parents.

    Cons

    The only downside was driving. My car wasn't in the best shape to drive from city to city. Anyone thinking about going into the child welfare field should be prepared to drive anywhere from 15 mins to 1 1/2 away. I was paid for mileage but all the driving wasn't worth the wear and tear on my car.


  2. Foster care case manager

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    I was able to supervise visits between the parent(s) and child. My supervisor was great and I worked with a descent group of people.

    Cons

    TOO much driving! My car wasn't in the best of shape and I couldn't drive 2 hours away for a 2 hour visit. I know this is important for the parents and kids to visit each other but my car wasn't in the best of shape to accommodate the trips.
