    A place of contradictions

    Nov 9, 2022 - Support Worker in Preston, North West England, England
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Get to know Core Members and bond with them over time. Get days off to explore local area. Meet some good people for sure.

    Cons

    Past Community Leader at location and past House Manager little more than bitter, angry bullies. Prattle on about "faith" yet are nasty more often than not. Revelations about Vanier very sad and tragic but in a way not unsurprising; for example, if a colleague expresses romantic interest in a co-worker, it is assumed the co-worker should fall over themselves with gratitude and happiness at the attention, and if the colleague is ignored (perhaps you have no interest in a romantic relationship) then passive aggressive destruction of your character will begin - cowardly actions to be fair. Overall, not that much of a stretch from that mentality to the heinous actions of Jean Vanier - "God has placed us both here etc." Very disturbing to contemplate!

    Working during lock-down. The experience was very much like living in a gold fish bowl.

    I felt there is a lot of humanity, interest and care of individuals in this organisation.
