Environmentalist II (Former Employee) – Drumheller, AB – 17 October 2017
Alberta Health Services was a very hard and demanding role but proved to be worthwhile. It was satisfying working with and helping the sick, the seniors and other co-workers. It offers a great support team with team work.

Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 October 2017
Alberta Health Services, was a respectable work place with wonderful management and the team had great work ethics. The co-act way with white bored and bedside shift report is a very good way to get a rapport with your patients.
Medical Office Assistant, Unit Clerk (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 October 2017
once your in your in, but trying to get in by your self without an "in" is nearly impossible. they post jobs knowing they already have someone in mind but because of the union they need to interview at least 3 people. again even if they know they are going to hire you outright.

Unit Clerk (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 October 2017
A good organization to work for. If you have to move with in the province you can usually take your seniority with you and find another position elsewhere. I have worked for them ten plus years in GSS and my salary has doubled since I started..
Surgical Processor (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 September 2017
A challenging work place. Shift work schedules. Fast paced. All jobs require high level of interaction with customers and co-workers. Responsibility for client health and life outcomes create work pressure and stress. You can experience a high level of confidence and personal achievement from a job well done in return.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 September 2017
Alberta Health Services is a wonderful place to learn and grow your practice. There are not many opportunities for advancement. There are not many positions available. Areas are over hired and shifts are hard to come by making it difficult to accelerate learning and improve skills.
LAB ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Fort Macleod, AB – 23 September 2017
AHS is good and progressive place to work. The challenging part for me was that I had a casual lab assistant position. Casual is really feast or famine. As a lab assistant the techs expect you to work the fast paced environment like a ft or pt person would. This can be challenging when you only work once or twice in three months? There are no benefits unless you get into a pt or ft position. You only get a raise with union as casual because you don't have enough hours to bring to the table for raises. As casual you do not qualify for benefits.
great job when you have pt or ft
casual position is hard to get anywhere, no benefits
