Pros: variety for all types of experiences

Dietary Aide (Current Employee), Barrie, ON – October 11, 2014
Pros: great hours, and friendly management.
Most days are routine belt line preparing and delivering food to patients on each floor, each delivery is never the same though because your always delivering to new patients. I learn something everyday from the patients i deliver to, and that it's important to treat every patient with care and respect equally. Both me and my coworkers get along great – more... always keeping patient satisfactory our main goal, along with our supervisors and management who always work with us to help the day go by smoother. The patient interaction is my favorite part of working at the hospital, but can also be the hardest when someone gets ill or passes can be hard, but is part of life. – less

Pharmacy Assistant (Former Employee), Barrie Ontario – September 8, 2013
Pros: great people
Cons: the hospital just keeps expecting more more more.
An 8 hour shift consists of running at full speed just so you might get a 10 minute break than back at it till lunch.same hectic pace till end of shift.stress level is high but you meet many great people. Hollow thanks are given for job well done. In the end there is no job security for anyone.
The dedicated staff at RVH is what makes it a great place to work. The management has 1960's management style.
Medical Lab Assistant (Former Employee), Barrie, ON – October 24, 2012
Pros: good salary. suitable hours. friendly staff
Cons: poor management
Great co workers. Friendly staff. Hard to work as a team as management encourages division between staff. Unfair to their long term senior staff Great hours Working alongside with Pathologist to ensure best specimen results.
I would work at different shifts-Morning-Evening-Night I loved working with patients My day would start-with taking account of the requirements in a patients ward. Then giving bath to patients that was allotted to me,by the head nurse,clean the patient’s beds change they clothing, feed the patients. Sing to them to lift they spirit if I observed them – more... to be in an off or bad mood. I loved my Co-workers, and they liked to work with me-I think because I was always in a joyful mood all the time. I was always willing to help, and was a great team player. The hardest part was when I went to work the next day, and found the patient that I sang to the previous day l was no more they, they were gone to heaven.
I learnt to love people, the more love you can give the more happy you can get. – less

Co-workers are always helpfull and help out if and – more... when needed. Not having enough time to take your breaks or a full Lunch hour. Most enjoyable part of the job Patient Satisfaction!!! – less
