Dedicated team with hoopla and fun
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Brampton, ONMarch 5, 2014
Although I was not paid at this position, I was treated as such. I enjoyed the experience with all team members because they expressed that I was welcomed. I was treated equally. From what I saw they worked well professionally as individuals and as a team. I never had any problems because they were up-front and were not afraid to let me know if I needed to be corrected in a positive manner and visa verse. I was able to utilize my skills and help every department to the best of my ability and I really appreciate it.

Very busy environment. I love that I am part of the William Osler Team at the Brampton Civic Hospital.
Purchasing/Accounting Assistant (Current Employee), Brampton, ONNovember 17, 2012
Pros: our salary and benefits are fair.
Cons: no appreciation and no opportunities for advancement.
The job is very busy, fast-paced, with close attention to detail. We rarely do anything that is fun or team-building..ie, pot-lucks, group lunches, group events. We work hard all day long and most of us eat lunch at our desks because it is difficult to squeeze a lunch break into our day.
I love that the day is busy and goes by quickly. However, I feel like we are not valued for the amount of effort we put into our work, and feel like maybe a few "fun" or team-building events would benefit employee morale.
Advancement within the company is difficult as they threaten to remove our pension plan with the hospital, should we wish to move to another opportunity. We feel like we are stuck in the position we are currently in.

HARD WORK BUT WORTH IT
Domestic Assistant (Former Employee), Glasgow, SCTJanuary 24, 2015
Pros: competative rates of pay
A typical day at work started very early as it was in a hospital enviroment.I learned all about health and safety and high class standards. Managers and supervisors are very friendly and approachable. The most enjoyable part of the job was when your ward passed its audit and you knew it was due to your hard work.

Professional Work Place
Q5 Integration Manager - Heathrow Airport (Current Employee), LondonJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: free coffee
Cons: very few breaks
Typical day consists of starting between 7am and 7:30am and finishing after 5pm, on a good day grab a 30 minute lunch.

Learned how to work under high pressure and deliver projects on time.

Managed a samll team and worked with them to develop different ways to manage each person to get the best and most effective results from them.

Luky to lead a very soial life with co-workers outside of work whilst remaining professional at work.

Hardest part of the job is dealing with unforseen circumstances within an airport environment.

Most enjoyable part of the job is working within the airport and getting to interact with passangers and crew.

Terrible Management, poor organisation & communication.
Senior Service Engineer (Former Employee), North of EnglandOctober 13, 2014
The management set unrealistic targets, gave no training, held no team meetings, gave all instruction through email claiming read receipt as read and understood. Never acted on issues, more concerned about family and friends rather than professional conduct. Try and skip health and safety issues but when questioned then labelled as trouble makers.
