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.
Medical Secretary/Receptionist (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 28 November 2016
I enjoy Burnaby hospital much more than Surrey memorial hospital. The staff are much more friendlier and it's very casual. Central city in Surrey can be mixed depending on the boss as its a mix of north, east and south regions during the amalgamation a few years back. However whatever job you do you're expected tp perform and do well. If you don't, other staff members will have to pick up the slack and it makes for a resentful environment. You're expected to learn continuously and not be lazy, be proactive and engaged.
Free lunches once in a while
Pay could be better for clerical staff who work hard to support and are the face of fha
Nursing Assistant (RCA) (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 15 November 2016
Challenging and rewarding experience. The work days are always different. Learned the art of working in a fast-paced, physically and mentally challenging environment. Co-workers are great. You definitely learn to depend on each other in this industry. Most enjoyable part of the job is helping those who can no longer help themselves and bringing happiness to their day.
Productive and love providing care for the elderly.
Home Support Worker (Former Employee) – Chilliwack, BC – 15 November 2016
I loved providing care for the elderly. They had a lot of stories to tell about the past. For most of them, we were the only people they saw. Everyone has their own personality and traditions. We were one to one with the clients -- very rarely saw co workers.
Poor management style; not very sophisticated organization
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 30 September 2016
Administrative support role. The workload was comparative to doing two jobs anywhere else - with reactionary and scattered priorities. FH is under-funded and people in many areas are doing the work of more than one person; this is not sustainable. Co-workers are very dis-engaged and unhappy. No room for growth and there is a sense of mediocrity. Was told not to make waves, do as I'm told, and not care so much. High turnover is a sign of issues, but management is not interested in addressing this. Benefits are very good and pay is average compared to other public sector environments. Culturally, people work very hard, but are not provided with engagement opportunities. The organization seems very immature in many ways. Not a place for anyone who has worked in more sophisticated or engaged environments.
Public sector pay and benefits.
No value or respect for people; poor engagement and mediocre work standards.
An outsider looking in (Current Employee) – B.c. – 15 August 2016
If you are looking to work for fraser health maintenance. Do yourself a favour and read the true ratings from the employees of Vancouver Coastal health.I wish I would have read the reviews prior to accepting a job.I couldn't believe what was written but now I totally agree with their points of view. ( Vancouver Coastal Health rate your employer )It's sad to say that in this organization you are a name and a number,being treated like little children with no say.The management has no desire to improve employer/employee relations and have a one track vision for maintenance. The only ones loosing out are the medical staffs and patients, sad be cause this is not what I signed up for.The infastruxture where I work is on the verge of massive failure
Working with medical staff helping patients
Toxic environment, bulling managers, reactionary management with poor people skills and poor or no maitaince direction.
Health Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 14 August 2016
The more schooling the better financially, however every position is as equally rewarding and sustaining. No matter what your skill or ability level there is opportunity. You really have a sense of being helpful and caring.
Nursing Unit Assistant (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 8 July 2016
I work in Intensive Care and it's busy, unpredictable and fast paced. I love it, but unfortunately there is no room for advancement in my current role. I work with fantastic staff and management which I am very proud of. It's a very rewarding place to work, tough situations with the acuteness of the unit, but very rewarding most days. I have learned much about team work, multi tasking, prioritizing, computer and communication skills here.

Medical Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) – New Westminster and Burnaby, BC – 11 March 2016
This was just my practicum but from what I hear from my supervisors through Fraser Heath there are many discounts and promotions through local companies such as fitness centers to encourage a healthy lifestyle in their employees. Hospital employees are unionized so there is great job security, however there is limited control of your role in the company. As a MLA there is little room for advancement without further education. Also like any job place, especially one with a primarily female population, there is some workplace gossip/drama.
Student Nurse (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 8 February 2016
Long eventful hours that are both engaging and full of learning experiences. Management of patients / workloads was appropriate times. Co-workers were professional and very helpful. Most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that you were able to help patients throughout your day.
