ULTRASOUND BOOKING CLERK AND OFFICE SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 20 August 2015
A great place to work. Lots of room to move around, some room for advancement within the company (though minimal). If the salary is comfortable for you, then this is somewhere that will allow you to focus on your life outside of work, and know that you're 9-5 will take good care of you.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 29 May 2015
Gathered market research through survey, and focus groups. Created an organic reach strategy by using local popular socialites as models for advertising and friend referrals and testimonies to reach new clients. Used event photography to connect with new customers after the event, and to further advertise in new circles. Used twitter to get user experience suggestions. Promotions included many price packages for different demographics of people; price positioning was key in identifying strengths opposite our competition. Created a merchandising department to produce more income and give consumer incentive to return.
Protection and Security Officer (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 2 December 2013
It is great pleasure to work with the Ottawa Hospital. This job teaches me how to connect with diverse people. The managemnet is not very coperative. The co-workers are friendly and helpful. The hard part of the job is to work in the night. I love to work with people and there are many people are working there. The overall rating is 5 out of 10.
very poor work environment with no Senior Management nor managerial support
RN (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 April 2015
Worst place to work. Overworked and understaffed. No support from Senior Management nor managerial support. You're there to work with no voice. Nothing is done about bullies especially if the bullies are managers and there are a lot of them. Stay away from this hospital.
OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY ADVISOR (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 12 December 2014

Ward Clerk (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 17 August 2013
Worked directly with the nurses, physicians and other health care professionals to ensure that patients need were met on a timely basis. Started my day at 0700 and ensured physicians had all charts required to do daily rounds. Was responsible for the transcription of all orders, ensured patients were taken to in hospital appointments. Worked directly with the Social Work and Home Care Departments to ensure a patients discharge. Enjoyed working with a diverse group of health care professionals from all parts of Canada and beyond. The hardest part was the shift work. The most enjoyable part was meeting people from all parts of the world and the smile on a patients face when they were discharged.
Very productive and a great learning tool enviorment
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 21 August 2012
Maintaining the grounds and safety of staff and patients at all times. I learned to deal and cope with Persons suffering with disabilities. The hardest part of the job is to see and deal with situations that make you not want to do the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was to make people smile . To allow them to know I was there to help them.
Lack of direction and strategic planning. If you are looking to gain experience in a large organization The Ottawa Hospital offers this. Unfortunately the work ethic and environment is lacking and leads to a staff that is sub-standard.
Good Pension Plan
Lack of leadership, strategic vision, employee recognition and retention.
