Different positions (Former Employee), London, ON – April 26, 2013
Pros: average pay and average benefits
Cons: no job security, poor management, no room for advancement.
Worst place I've ever worked. Racist and homophobic environment. No job security. Everyone there is married to someone else who works there and their kids work there too so unless you're part of the click you won't fit in. Very judgmental environment and the management is horrendous. Unless you enjoy psychological terrorism stay away from LHSC. Work – more... for St. Joe's instead where you'll be treated like a human being with more compassion and caring. – less

LHSC is a pioneer in medical advancement and this is demonstrated in the Laboratory. A typical day can be both fun and rewarding. It will both challenge your knowledge and keep you motivated for personal advancement. The peope are great.
Pharmacy Distribution Assistant (Former Employee), London Ontario – September 17, 2013
I worked in a very fast paced changing environment daily, it was always busy and I loved it. I would volunteer to do new task with minimal direction and accomplish the complete expectation. I always get along with my co workers as work must be a professional environment.I thrive best when I work and my attendance is perfect.
Energetic, continually changing and high paced environment with an incredibly supportive and interactive crew of health care professionals

Student (Former Employee), London, ON – December 15, 2012
I was a student doing my internship here, so I was unpaid. However, I imagine the salary and benefits were fair at this location. I loved my time at the LHSC, everyone was professional and there was a lot of room to expand your knowledge or to advance.
