Job Work/Life Balance
Registered Health Care Aide (Current Employee), Hamilton, Ontario – November 30, 2013
Pros: variety of shifts
Cons: comprised supplies or short staffing because of budgets
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.
Critical Care Data Assistant (Current Employee), Hamilton, ON – March 15, 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.
Palliative Liaison (Former Employee), Hamilton, ON – February 24, 2016
opportunity to advance and initiate changes Even though cancer survival is improving an average day spent at this hospital included a hard days work.It is highly known that those clients who weather the storm of a critical episode often experience an improvement and that provides for a job well done.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Hamilton Health Sciences – June 24, 2015
As a part of a Team that deals with alot of tragic life altering experiences it always amazes me how well as a team we pull together to meet our goal either it is holding a hand to supporting a elderly man who is sick to helping a grieving Family of a Young Ciritcal Trauma. I feel rewarded after evey shift knowing that i have touched someone in there life in a time that no one would want to experience an never thought they would experience.
Environmental Aide (Current Employee), Hamilton, ON – April 28, 2015
Job is alright, looking for full-time hours. Need to find a better job, with better pay as to me having 2 children. Never go up the chain of command, and just not interested in working with this employer any longer
Very slow paced and a lot of politics involved if you are working with the engineering department
Plumber (Former Employee), McMaster Hospital – April 28, 2015
Pros: Good benefits, pension
This is the type of job for someone who is not very ambitious in my opinion. It is a lot of sitting around and pretending to be busy and waitin for things to go wrong. Have to deal with the everyday drama of other employees
Great place to work, plenty of opportunities for solid work experience
Registered Social Worker (Former Employee), Hamilton, ON – January 15, 2015
Pros: hands on experience and autonomy of work
Cons: large part of work is sedentary and on the computer
i have worked both full time and part time. My typical day was a mix of individual and group work as well as approximately 60% of my time being devoted to reports and day to day case notes. I participated in regularly scheduled team meetings and would debrief with colleagues as needed. Everyone worked together well.
Information Analyst (Former Employee), Hamilton, ON – December 29, 2014
