Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 1 October 2017
It is a good place to work. Friendly people, atmosphere and always willing to listen to sugestions for improvement. Depending on the day work can get pretty hecktic at times but with a team approach all of the needed works gets done by the end of the day!
Great pay and place to work, Management needs and overhaul
Cardiovascular Technologist-Pacemaker Technician (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 23 August 2017
Management can make or break a job. This was a great place to work except for the poor management in all areas. People should not have been in certain positions and didn't know how to do their job properly. Colleagues were great and the job was awesome.
Good environment and friendly workers,staff and management.

Registered Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 23 August 2016
I'm a Respiratory Therapist and I would say that working at the Regina General Hospital was like going through boot-camp because of the sheer number of patients and traumas to deal with. You will get loads of experience with lots of lee-way in terms of scope, but you will be stressed and drained of energy after every shift.
Wide scope of practice as doctors really trust their nurses and RTs
IT Senio Analyst (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 16 August 2016
A typical day at work is helping out users with their access to files on the network. I've learned how to management my time in a more effective way. Management treats everyone equally. My co-workers always make sure that I have everything that I needed when I started working with the Health Region. The hardest part of the job is when you do nothing and that makes the time so slow. The most enjoyable part of my job is when we meet people to gather data or help them out if we can't help them remotely.
administrative assistant (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 11 January 2016
constant complaining from employees and people were always eager to throw each other under the bus, which happens to be a commonly used term there. Treats certain individuals or employees such as those with disabilities with disrespect despite being health care and corporate or company goals and objectives don't align with actions of the organization. Too heavily bureaucratic and inefficient, management have no idea what is happening on the front lines and waste time on committee meetings which are a complete waste of periodically. getting yelled at by other staff and staff who are not really there for the patient as the TV commercials states, but for the money and pay every 2 weeks. I've seen staff too often take pleasure in other staff members misfortunes.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – general and pasqua hospitals – 12 August 2014
Typical job is poking as many people as possible without regard to their safety. The most pokes you could get done was the goal. They say that the patient is the most important part of system but the management did not care as long as the sample was collected. Co-workers will throw you under the bus when given the chance.
A great job with repeat opportunities for contributing to our community
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 1 February 2014
Working in a fast paced environment with a very demanding physical schedule on filling Rx and delivering items to hospital wards, I've learned to organize and manage my time well in order to adhere to the schedule. I work with a great team of efficient, knowledgeable, and responsible co-workers. Due to my physical limitations in lifting and reaching over head from shoulder injuries, I struggle with those demands of the job. My most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that I am contributing and making a difference in caring and attending to the needs of patients.
Great benefits and salary
Too physically demanding for my physical abilities.
I work with great coworkers that can laugh and have some fun at work.
Purchasing Clerk (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 23 July 2013
My typical day at work involves answering phone calls, filling orders and ordering medications for my facility and other facilities in the health region. I put all of the stock away when it arrives. I do a lot of multitasking throughout the day with requests from pharmacists and other technicians. I find it very rewarding when I can answer a question from a coworker that has been in the pharmacy longer than me.
Management holds a lot of information meetings with all of the staff regularly.
Get overwhelmed with the amount of work that needs to be done without any help some days.
ORA (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 19 April 2013
a typical day at work is like a trip to the circus - chaos, confusion, mismanagement, constant errors by vital departments to the added effect of excessive waste, bias issues, poor employee relations, ineffective people put in positions of power with no accountability or will to make changes needed. morale is always low, nobody cares about their job, no efforts to boost it they also have some of the dirtiest, un-kept equipment i have ever seen, with no real will to replace the aging equipment.
Laboratory Assistant (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 22 February 2013
A typical day at work entails presence of mind and concentration, as we are handling patient samples, and mistakes and mix-ups are less than acceptable. In this workplace i have learned to multi-task while maintaining organization on my work, as well as problem solving skills which require patience, understanding and presence of mind.
