Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 31 March 2017
Not good place to work. Too much prejudices. Management listens to certain people. They do not surveys for staff by patients. The staff patients devalue, management likes. The staff patients love, management hates.
Unit Clerk at Peter Lougheed Hopsital (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 March 2017
I work at Peter Lougheed Hospital in Mental Health and its a great work environment with nursing staff and Doctors. Everyday is full of different job challenges, you really have to be able to multi task.
Hard to find a stable position/line currently though with the economy.
Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 March 2017
I really enjoyed working there and would go back in a heart beat. The ability to work remotely was great, the manager was great, and the pay was great. The flexibility was a real change of pace which allowed me to contribute a lot more.
Housekeeper Casual (Former Employee) – Claresholm, AB – 23 March 2017
Typical work day is getting prepared to start organizing our cart and making sure everything that is touchable is disinfected. I learned to work as a team player and help out as much as I can.
The work place culture is working in a stable environment with great staff. Hardest part about the job is using the floor machine. Most times it will not work so we mop the floors with the broom on the rough cement floor.
Most enjoyable about the job would have to be working with partners sometimes you get the job done faster and easier.
Registered Nurse (RN) (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 March 2017
Unsupportive management and physicians. Overbooked clinic and OR. Educator only support person. Hostile and toxic work environment. At times very unsafe and unsupported in the procedure room. As well as in the clinic
Potential to be a great place with the proper support and management
Administrative Support (Current Employee) – Stony Plain, AB – 8 March 2017
Very busy place. You need to be flexible, Always need to be professional, polite and curious. Compassionate and kind. One day is never the same as the next it is always different you never know what to except from patients and staff. In my position we work with minimal supervision, one needs to know how to prioritize in order to get the job done. Management gets back to us in a timely fashion as their office is at another location therefore we use e-mail often to communicate. The most difficult about the job is that patients have to wait and sometimes the wait time is very long and they become impatient. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I am able to serve the public, I love being able to help individuals.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 8 March 2017
The management is strong and supportive. I was always well informed, professionally addressed, and felt comfortable at work. It is easy to transfer within Alberta Health Services from one position to another and you are well supported throughout the process. It will be hard to leave Alberta Health Services. I felt respected and that the job was well paid.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Medicine Hat, AB – 2 March 2017
Ambulatory Care in MHRH is an amazing unit to work, great staff, great manager, great support systems. The Clients are fantastic and I for one liked the fact that we were open on weekends but closed on all holidays.
Flower Deliverer (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 2 March 2017
I loved volunteering at the Red Deer hospital it is a fun job helping put a smile on peoples faces. I worked with the flower delivery program and it was always a blast. Dropping off flower arrangements for people brightened their day which brightened mine.
Making people happy
Being in a hospital environment isnt ideal cant be sad
It is an experience going to work here. One never knows what will happen during a shift.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Ponoka, AB – 1 March 2017
The hardest part of this job is getting attached to the senior patients. Most enjoyable part of my job is making my patients feel better about themselves and making them laugh. Everyday at work is a learning experience. Always something new. I have never had any problems dealing with the managers. They are a good crew to work for.
Working casual you can pretty much make up your own schedule
LPN's cannot work night shifts because they cannot be in charge. This limits your shifts.
Clerk II (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 1 March 2017
We assist clients in vaccination. The team helps each other in performing duties. I enjoy my job because I get to serve the public and work in a respectful environment. Our management team are superb, making sure we are fully staffed in order to provide excellent customer service.
Workplace Health and Safety Advisor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 25 February 2017
My work was mostly computer based, working with AHS' online incident management system. This involved calling the various hospital managers to assist them with the new system as well as provide OHS guidance. The managers were mostly interested in just getting it over with but they responded to OHS suggestions over time.
AHS is good at improving its people as they offer a number of opportunities for personal improvement such as courses.
Other than that, the onboarding process was slow, taking weeks before I had complete computer use.
The management was quick to let you leave early on holidays, long weekends, etc.
Cook/Prep-Nutrition Food Services (Current Employee) – St. Albert, AB – 21 February 2017
Turn on the oven, steamers, start breakfast for patients, breakfast for costumer at the cafeteria, lunch. I learn empathy for other people who work in service industry jobs. I work with many people from different countries. The hardest part they don't have many hours to work. I like every thing about my job I love cooking.
Human Resources Client Services Assistant (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 17 February 2017
The position was a good opportunity. I liked the co-workers I shared an office with. Very team oriented and always helping each other. The benefits were the best. My brother in law was in a severe accident and AHS was very supportive with time off and sick leave.
