Registered Health Care Aide (Current Employee) – Hamilton, Ontario – 30 November 2013
Everyday we have something new to experience, whether it is a new procedure, a funny story from a Patient, Co-worker or a family member. Always something new to learn and develop with our experiences. Managers often would like to see more than the budget allows for, co-workers can make your job difficult or enjoyable, everyone has different ways of dealing with stressful issues and sometimes this can be very trying. Seeing patients and their families smile is my personal goal while I am at work. I take this same goal in my personal life as well. Life is not always easy,I try my best to keep the workplace an enjoyable place to be under sometimes stressful situations.
variety of shifts
comprised supplies or short staffing because of budgets
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 14 March 2017
I have learned that it is important to interact with fellow employees/colleagues at a person level and not to "work, work, work" all day long. It is important to laugh as well. The result is that more productivity occurs. The hardest part of the job is taking some time out to not take the job too seriously and getting the job done in a timely manner.
Friendships that can be made
If you do the job well, others rely on you to help them
SharePoint- Data Management Assistant (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 28 February 2017
Company has MGMT flaws.. Too many people going in and out.
Unfortunately it is an aging working class that tend to complain about their job rather then DO their job. I can only speak from my experience but outside of union employees you may lose your hair wondering where/if your job will exist tomorrow.

Hi Worked at Hamilton Health Sciences (McMaster Division) for 27 years. I worked in Medical Records, Admitting and the Emergency Department. I have learned so many jobs in my career at the hospital. Have learned how to work with many personalities and professional staff. Most of all, learned how to deal with patients.Having the patience and compassion of people that come for your help. When someone has an important role dealing with the public, is to put yourself in there situation and treat them how you would expect to be treated.

Registered Respiratory Therapist- Pediatric (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 12 August 2016
Enjoying working with the other RRTs at McMaster Children's, it's a tight knit group, very supportive of each other. Workload seems to be well balanced, probably more staffing in the winter would be better for respiratory illness season.
Critical Care Data Assistant (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 15 March 2016
Wonderful work environment, loved my managers, coworkers and the patients at McMaster Children's Hospital. Salary is very competitive, the only thing I would like to see change is the number of casual employees they hire to avoid paying benefits.
