Technical Attendant (Community Health Rep) (Former Employee), Edmonton,ABJanuary 13, 2015
A typical day at work for me was to go out to different outreach sites and engage at risk and/or marginalized populations for testing, treatment and follow-up of sexually transmitted infections and blood borne pathogens. working closely with registered nurses and building relationships with clients, it was both rewarding and exciting as there were never two days the same.
I learned a lot about infections of these types and how they do not discriminate to just the marginalized populations and can affect us all.
supported by a great manager we were able to accomplish our job in a variety of interesting ways to serve our clients.
The hardest part of the position was having to be involved in notifying clients about serious infections such as HIV.
the most enjoyable part was building relationships and educating people about different infections and how they may be prevented.

Unit Clerk (Current Employee), Calgary, ABOctober 21, 2014
Working in a hospital setting is a great place to learn and improve many skills. Things can change as fast as the weather, so you must always be alert and on your toes.
Working with children 5 days a week is a great time to let your inner child out.

Amazing people to work for, so dedicated.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Calgary, ABSeptember 26, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: too many projects on the go.
Amazing people work at AHS! They are truly dedicated to finding better ways of making you better. The hard part is the public doesn't get a chance to hear or see what is really going on. I do truly belive they would be impressed with all of the things going on behind the sceens. We may not be on the front line, but our goal is the same, to give every
Albertan the best health care in the world.

Fun and productive workplacewith a team environment
Accounts Payable Clerk (Current Employee), CalgarySeptember 17, 2014
I go into work and check my e-mail to make sure that I don't miss any important messages from my manager and supervisors. From another office I will upload and scan invoices coming in through e-mail to mark view. Then Ill go to the mail room and pick up the A/P, A/R, and other financial department bins for internal mail. I will also grab the Edmonton and Red Deer courier boxes. I sort all the internal and courier invoices and count them separately. Ill distribute the mail to different people and teams in my department. There are 1000+ invoices sometimes. Ill enter all of this data into our excel spreadsheet. I enjoy having a team environment with cubicles being close together. My co-workers are patient and friendly. To be continued.....

A typical day at work starts off running! Answering phones, emails and staff questions regarding payroll, shifts and contractual agreements.
