Great salary and benefits but don't become part of management
HR (Former Employee) – Fraser Valley – February 7, 2015
They like to preach work/life balance and if you are unionized, then generally you have that. If you are part of the management team, you will be expected to run off your feet, spend at least 10 hours a day at work, and rarely see your family. They are micro-managers who like to track you as to when you arrive, when you leave, and where you are no matter how good a job you do. There is no trust even though you are working through your lunch and extra hours to get the work done.
Your own team will have backstabbers - you cannot trust anyone and it is mind-boggling. Fraser Health is not a great place to work. If you must, use it as a stepping stone to another heath authority. PHSA, Providence, and even Vancouver Coastal are all better environments.
Program Clerk (Current Employee) – Lower mainland, British Columbia – December 28, 2014
A typical day at work would involve editing time cards, looking over staffing baselines to ensure units can function properly for the days to come, work alongside the short call office and charge nurse to problem solve immediate needs, go over all vacancies and set up orientation, process shift swaps, leave requests and pay outs.
The hardest part of my job is sometimes not being able to give my units the baseline they need to function properly.
The most enjoyable part of my job is building the rapport with my staff and working as a team alongside with them, so they can give the best patient care.
great teamwork and environment
not being able to fill my units staffing needs due to zero staff.
Good learning opportunities & pleasant work environment
