Other Queensway Carleton Hospital Employee Reviews
Job Work/Life Balance
Awful management, no support from “leaders” that have no experience
RN (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 23 February 2018
Horrible place to work, unless you like being under appreciated, talked to like children by managers, no resources, unmanageable workload and no pay for justified overtime. No breaks, or downtime. Not recommended to start a career in a place like this.
Will hire anyone to work as management as long as they have papers, no experience required.
Understaffed, no breaks, no overtime even if not avoidable, managers don’t give much thought about the nurses
The best staff in Ottawa, management issues leave room for improvement
Clerk (Former Employee) – Ottawa West, ON – 2 February 2018
If you can put up with more than most you are an excellent fit for the QCH Emergency department. Patients on their worst days, policies that don't serve you as best they could and the ever constant dissatisfaction with management are the big cons, but the pros are big as well. Great pay, the friendliest and most hardworking nurses, doctors and support staff, and the choice to work 8 or 12 hours a shift, leading to shorter work weeks if needed, or more manageable days if you don't. Overall I would recommend the QCH to thick skinned employees, and people looking to feel like they helped make a difference in someone's life, an opportunity you get each day at work.
