The work culture is deteriorating, with increasing work levels and decreasing safety. Forced overtime and involuntary redeployment to non preferred sites destroys moral.
Service focused, there is a gym at one facility, no real play time but they used to have Christmas party
Direct management was good to start, but too often they promote within, and not based on qualifications, more about who you know, and time in,, that is the sad part,
lots of leg work - material and patient portering
When I first started it was the best job I ever had, management slowly changed over the years getting worse with every change. If you are not prepared to suck up to the bosses you will never get ahead. Promotions had nothing to do with job performance and everything about sucking up. Retired after 30 years, not one word from management. Didn’t even get an email saying thanks for coming. What kind of employer doesn’t even acknowledge a employee when they retire, VIHA that who.

Productive workplace very stressful and it’s shift work most jobs!! There’s politics and every job keep to yourself you didn’t go to work to make friends!! Be a hard worker and very professional
8 hrs 2 30 min breaks 12 hrs 3, 35 min breaks good place to work it’s nice to move around in the job
Some areas there’s a lot of politics
A challenging and ever expanding area of health care. Skills oriented job which is as equally demanding of strong interpersonal/ social skills. Though the daily tasks and duties of the job are routine and often fast paced, the patient population is long term and chronic thereby creating strong connections with the unit and staff.
I loved working there at first. Lots of disfunction at first it seemed manageable.I was asking about a raise as I wanted to know the hrsThe second in charge told me the manager was in process of finding how to fire me. As actually they didn't follow the union rules regarding pay I would have been owed many hrs of over time as would others. They were worried I would realize and file a grievance.I had an allegation and upon return to work I was told it was still being investigated and that viha thinks I did something.I was utterly horrified however it was a lie.. I had a yr and half of this.Then I'm told I need a meeting with my union rep. I had enough and my fiancé asked me to quit.Basically they deserve each other.. could be an amazing place if some management changes made. When I quit I got ei, the EI rep said to me I believe in karma in all my years of doing this it's wow.. she was told I was a good worker but got upset over what occurred I couldn't take it.or they would have offered me a different job. At the other house . meanwhile they had tried to reprimand me for abuse over something that didn't occur and I got ei .. It took me 6 months to recover from this experience.I had job offers and interviews. But this company refuses to say much to potential employers. I emailed the hr person who keeps responding here.. she ignored it.
Liked the type of work, learned a lot
Worklife balance is important to the Island Health. It is not universal. The culture at work differs between programs and also between union vs non-union worlds.
You never know what your day will bring you can come in with a plan, but things come up and you must be flexible to adapt to the needs of the department
more work than a person can do

- Victoria, BC
It was a great place to grow, and learn. Having updated technology really does save a lot of time and hassle. After working in a much less funded facility, dang I appreciate the atrium more!
- a typical day: start/continue/complete tasks. There will most likely be a lot of walking and stair climbing. - what I learned: how to properly do team work - management: very good. The people I worked with really know how to work as a team from the top. - workplace culture: I was in a co-op, so my experience was limited, but it seems like everyone looks out for everyone else there. - the hardest part of the job: when the co-op ended. I had fun there and learned a lot. The pay was in the low end of my peers in other co-ops. - the most enjoyable part: the appreciation of a job well done. All the support and learning from my colleagues' experiences.
Lots of casual work with daily calls and overtime. The employees are really nice to work with except on the ortho units the nurses are way too rigid and controlling. The pay for registered nurses is low starting at 28 dollars an hour making 50 to 60 K a year, whereas on the mainland nurses are paid 43 dollars starting. But the care units on the mainland don't have care aids for nursing support on the floors, 4 care aids on AM care and 2 to 4 care aids on HS care like they do with Island Health. The ER in Island Health has care aids to help support care, but the lower mainland the nurses don't have care aids to support care here on the mainland. The cardiac and renal unit with VIHA is amazing like the ER because the staff are great!
I worked for VIHA for 19 years at many sites and many units. It was the worse job I ever had. The managers are very critical and micro-manage you down to the second. The work is heavy and gross, dealing with feces and urine all day while working short staffed on a regular basis. The staff are mainly miserable and very difficult to get along with. The whole environment is toxic and unhealthy.
