Volunteer (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 11 November 2016
I love being a volunteer their, love seeing all the smiles you put on peoples faces as they enter the hospital. Even though hospital aren't peoples most favorite place to be, i fi could make only one person smile it makes my day (that has always been my goal)
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.
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
At the Ottawa Hospital, I worked within a department called Occupational health Services. The main part of my job was conducting N95 respiratory mask fit testing for staff. When I was not fit testing, I assisted the H&S Officer with investigations and incident reports.
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.
