Lots of hours

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
Most nurses work here. Lots of jobs and different roles. Lots of bureaucracy too. Job satisfaction largely dependent on individual managers and co workers

Unless you are an immature narcissist, don't work here. Especially if you are male.

Most bizarre work experience I have ever had. Interview was great, with two wonderful Team Leads. It went downhill after that. I should have known when they hired me so fast. Training is minimal. Eight 12 hour shifts to learn it all. Not enough time. Alarm systems, the zones, different hospitals, health centers, multiple radio channels and phones. There is too much to learn in such a short period of time. The radio room is small. There is not back up for it if there is a fire or it has to be evacuated. Lose it and all dispatching for the province goes down. It is housed in a 70 ex mental hospital that still smells of death and despair. I was told they did electroshock therapy there back in the day. Coworkers are clannish and if you don't fit in right away, they will make your life difficult. This is a public safety communications center, but you wouldn't know it from the loud non work conversations going on. Radio calls are missed, phones not answered because they are all distracted by their cellphones and talking to each other nonstop. Manager is horrible. No people skills whatsoever and does not understand how the systems work. Is only there 3 out of 5 days. Only sees the negatives and cannot motivate. Most of the staff think they need to be put out to pasture. I had my own issues learning the skills needed and the work environment was not helpful. It was a blessing to be let go during my probation.

Points positifs

Four days onshift with four days off.

Points négatifs

Long hours

Toxic Workplace

Ignorant Coworkers who create a hostile environment for anyone they feel isn't a part of their clique. They will fire you if you voice any concern before your probation passes.

I felt fairly compensated for my work.

Working in any admin position seems comfortable, I can't speak to the experience of medical professionals within AHS. I worked at multiple sites and some were better than others. I had a good manager in my department.

Points positifs

Good pay, unionized

Great starter

Worked here for a couple of years now. Great entry level getting into medical field. Being a service worker in multiple hospitals, not bad but gets very repetitive.

Hiring process was far too drawn out and disorganized.

The job itself is decent, but lack of communication and the overall disorganization of the hiring process leaves much to be desired. It took more than 6 months to get hired on despite having more than a decade of relevant experience and the facility screaming for nurses. It then took another 7 months to receive my first buddy shift. From my date of hire, it took over a year to have my ported over hours from Covenant Health processed and reflected in my wage.This is not the way to recruit and retain staff. It's no wonder there is such a nursing shortage crisis.

Great work environment and lots of positive people

Most of the supervisors and upper management staff we great to work with. It was a real positive environment with great people. Work was done remotely during Covid.

Un productive

Not a place to work. Every manager work for themselves and block important information. I would not recommend as they appear very down to earth, but in reality they do not respect anyone.

Good pay and hours

Excellent benefits and pay. The flexibility to work from home is amazing. Metrics are a bit inaccurate and do not capture all of the things we do within human resources shared services. I've enjoyed my time there but I'm moving to human resources business partners to focus ore clients needs.

Challenging, but rewarding

I enjoyed my time at AHS in various temp roles. The temp roles were like a foot in the door, and once you're in it's easy to move to something else that better suits you. All of the roles I held offered me so much support.

Pros include working from home, steady income, okay benefits. Cons include vindictive manager, no opportunity to work your way up, no mentorship, unlivable wage despite years of seniority

Good workplace

Lots of opportunity for work as a registered nurse in the surgical float team, even working casually. Great benefits, learning environment, and helpful staff.

It’s ok depending on the department and your manager. My manger was great and my coworkers were fine but there are issues like every large company. I enjoyed working there

Consistent Workdays and Supportive Environment

Training for each shift is pretty thorough to ensure you understand the different tasks for each role. Co workers are helpful and work together when you are struggling to complete tasks. Overall a consistent environment, however requires a lot of manual labor (ex. Lifting, walking).

Poor culture

My work site was rife with favouritism and almost seemed to encourage negative behaviour and unprofessional conduct from the favoured few.The "u favourites" were worked harder and targeted for frivolous discipline repeatedly. 5 people taking stress leave and/or outright leaving over 2 years - can't be a coincidence.

Points positifs

Pay, benefits

Points négatifs

Terrible leadership
