Student Nurse Clinical Experience
Student Registered Nurse (Former Employee), North York, ONJuly 16, 2014
Pros: great learning experience
Cons: long day
Once a week, for 10 hours in the day, I would be at the Geriatrics Acute Care Unit at North York General Hospital from 7am-3:30pm, followed by a 2 hour post-conference with my Clinical Group and Clinical Instructor from Seneca College. During the shift, I would be assigned to a Nurse and would meet and help in providing patient-centered care to their – more... patients. I assisted with taking Vital Signs (temperature, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, pulse, respirations), Feeding, Grooming, Transferring, Bed-baths. My groupmates and I would sometimes help each other if needed. We all co-operated well and listened to our instructor as she guided us very intelligently. I learned so much about the importance of communicating with patients and making them feel well-cared for. I enjoyed seeing my patients in a good mood, knowing that someone was there for them and paying attention to their needs. I sincerely want to be a nurse, but would enjoy any job in the medical field. I want to expand my knowledge and skills to build a long-lasting career in the future. – less

Stepping Stone
Security Guard (Current Employee), North York, ONJune 10, 2014
Pros: no traffic going to work
Cons: lack of sleep and living on different schedule than family.
Working the late night shift is challenging at times. Trying to find a balance with work, family and mental health takes much discipline.

My co-workers are very knowledgeable in the security field and are very willing offer suggestions.

I enjoy the challenges and diversity of working in a hospital. I enjoy meeting different people and persevering – more... through problems that arise.
Although there are some difficult situations and outcomes, I try to learn and grow from them to the best of my ability. – less

This is the most miserable place in the known world
Administration (Former Employee), GeneralNovember 14, 2012
Cons: everything
The managers are completely ignorant of operations and how to run a business. They also hate any sort of criticism and new ideas. The only people that get promoted are sycophants that are equally useless and will not challenge authority. Coworkers only think about their own interests and will fight you tooth and nail in order to avoid work.

Bottom – more... line this is an awful place to work that will kill your soul and cause you to become a bitter and resentful person. – less

Peoples Person
Dietetic Attendant (Former Employee), North York, ONSeptember 20, 2012
Typical work day is my first day meeting new patients. Learned, how to handle older people when they get angry. Management is very friendly and the co-workers are the same. Hardest part of the job is, if someone died or hurt them self. Most enjoyable part of the job is meeting people and listen to older people what they saying.
