Lead Hand/Patient Financial Counsellor (Current Employee) – BC – 25 April 2014
Fraser Health is a great company to work for but the room for advancement is limited. Managing a staff of 6 employees gives me the opportunity to interact with the employees and motivate them to do their jobs to the best of their abilities. Challenges are there in all jobs yet I find it makes my job more interesting to accomplish all tasks making any improvements for the department. The most enjoyable part of the job is the ability to help those around me and the interactions that I encounter daily whether by phone or in person. Management styles are different in all organizations and it is something you adjust to from one organization to another.
Nursing Unit Coordinator (Current Employee) – ICU, HAU, Cardiac Unit, Medical – 14 September 2017
A typical day on the Cardiac ward is intense and busy, that's what I love about it the most. The Nurses are great to work and I learn something new almost every time I work.
The hardest part of the job is reading the Dr's orders :) The most enjoyable part of the job is watching a patient go home with a smile on their face, and when family thanks you for helping their loved ones
Flexibilty and growth oppurtunities but pay and benefits are poor
Management (Current Employee) – Clinical area – 12 September 2017
As a leader in this organization, the pay is very poor and the health benefits also poor. If you want a good benefit plan do not become a leader in the organization stay within the union. The new provider of Employee Assistance is also poor. When I requested counselling services for difficulty in my marriage, the service provider suggested to myself wasn't even a registered clinical counsellor (considered the standard in BC ) and specialized in an area not at all correlated with why I was seeking help (trauma).
Rehab Staff (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 6 September 2017
Poor pay, good work life balance. Did not get trained in areas I wanted to be in due to staffing levels. Patients are horrible and the healthcare system is broken. People misuse the system and we need to go to a semi-private system.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – acute care – 16 July 2017
Fraserhealth is growing and well known facility which accommodates a vast and continuously expanding area. it has allowed me to learn over the years and advance my knowledge in the medical field and acquire respect of a senior nurse.
The staff within is like a second family and overall work well together. I am proud to represent Fraserhealth.
some buidlings do not have air condition for staff and patients

Medical Office Assistant/Receptionist (Current Employee) – Agassiz, BC – 13 June 2017
This is a great company to work for, the staff and Dr.'s nurses are great and it's such a nice thing to be able to wake up and wanna go to work. Management is fantastic and as every office is different, learning something new is daily.
Outpatient Clerk (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC & New Westminster, BC – 6 June 2017
Fraser Health demonstrates a committment to patient care on many different levels. Co-workers are always willing to help and learn on a daily basis. Knowing I can help and the appreciation of coworkers is the most enjoyable part of the day.
Nurse (Former Employee) – New Westminster, BC – 24 April 2017
It's a hit and miss. Sometimes you can have a great working experience here and other times not so great. Like any place, staff members vary from friendly to unfriendly. Not as organized as other health authorities.
Claims & Risk Analyst / Coroners' Liaison (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 29 March 2017
There is not typical day in the position I held. I managed patient property loss and this entailed speaking with patients, family members and staff. I also managed Fraser Health owned property claims, such as floods and fires. Then I also was the Coroners' liaison dealing with investigations into unanticipated deaths. The most challenging part of the job was probably speaking with upset patients and/or family members. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping solve various problems.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – BC – 26 March 2017
The hardest part of the job is working short and patient workload that you sometimes get. It was very hard to get a full time position. I worked as a casual and would get lots of shifts or none in a month, it was either feast or famine. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to help people
