    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Bay Cove Human Services

    Pros

    The location and the pay wasn’t too bad.

    Cons

    Worst work experience of my life. Colleagues are gossipey, Supervisor was inconsistent, gave no directions and upper management was a bunch of backstabbers. Never had such a bad experience.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for your bad decisions! Be more human! That is human services after all!

    I have been working at Bay Cove Human Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pay is decent for a student, working with the managers in the office. I was treated with respect and giving so many opportunities to grow there after finishing school. Everyone in the office looks out for one another.

    Cons

    If you are hired to work in the houses, the pay isn’t worth it at all, in my opinion. The clients can be extremely difficult, (depending on the house you’re placed in) you’re expected to clean, cook, and assist clients for pennies.

    Advice to Management

    In my opinion, instead of just hiring anybody to work with clients, try to find people who are actually passionate about the work. Too many social workers treated their clients like total idiots and dismissed them constantly.
