High caseload numbers requiring excellent time management and organizational skills. Extensive liaison with health case professionals in community including psychology, physiotherapy, occupational therapy. Hardest part of job assuming files from other Provinces when shortage of staff etc. Most enjoyable; face to face meeting with clients when required.
Programmer/Analyst (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 25 May 2017
Good family feeling run company. For a health care company the benefits to the employees are below par. The salary based on similar positions in the same area are on the low scale, and whatever you do ... don't get sick. For a health care company it seems that whenever an employee gets sick and goes on disability for any reason they are fired soon after returning.
flexible work hours
if you supervisor doesn't like you .. you will have a hard time
nice place and people are really easy to get along with
Receptionist/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 29 January 2017
prepare computer for the start of the day, get email faxes from the over night and send them to the proper department or person, log phone in the get calls, finish work from the day before if any. Learned some different system within the company while doing distribution and working with some federal projects. Management is fair and the culture is good there is different nationalities. The hardest part of the job was to sit at the desk all day until someone came to replace you for breaks and lunches sometimes you need to go to the washroom a little hard when your the only one there in the lobby...the most part that i enjoyed was meeting different people and helping someone that needed information and didn't know were or who to ask for
Internal Customer Service (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 7 November 2016
I worked for Medavie Blue Cross for 12 years. I only left to try my hand at running my own business. This job was a typical office job. I learned how to be very organized at Blue Cross. Our management team was amazing...always striving to build good moral within the team. The part I liked most about this job is I knew exactly what was expected of me and I came in and did my job and at the end of the day I got to go home and leave work at work. I also really liked my hours ... I was able to start early and leave at 3:15...as a golfer, this was perfect during golf season :) If I had to say anything negative it would be the rate of pay...I only stayed 12 years because I was married and had a second income.

If you're not part of the "country club" you won't make it in this federal department. The private side of the company may be different. If you're looking for job security might not be the place to work. As I have been gone for 2 years and still hear about people being let go continuously.
distribution clerk/reception (Former Employee) – Moncton, New-Brunswick Canada – 15 January 2015
answered phone at reception then opened mail and distributed mail, then went back to both reception for an hour each, then did my own work when done if time helped others to finish there work. it's really hard to explain the work because it is very sensitive ( government work) but basically prepared checks and statements to be mailed out every day over 3,000 sometimes a lot more, and helped others to do the same
if changing jobs in company you have no option to go back to old job if it doesn't work out

Claims Analyst (Former Employee) – Etobicoke – 9 April 2013
A typical day at Medavie Blue Cross was hard working, but, had a relaxed atmosphere. I learned how to balance work and my homelife, as my role as a Claims Analyst sometimes required long hours during the busy Fall/Winter season. Management were supportive of us, my co-workers and I always worked as at team helping each other out when the workload fell behind.The hardest part of the job was trying to bring down the work volumn, and the most enjoyable part was when we accomplished that mission.
