Patient Equipment Technician (Current Employee), Stanford, CA – December 19, 2012
Pros: monthly potlocks
Cons: repetitive and physical work
A typical day at work would starts off with jobs being paged to your pager. These jobs would be started by either determining if the piece of equipment needed to be picked up or delivered. At times the – more... job would call for multiple equipment at one time.
Management can be pretty firm and fair, I do at times feel that there are things that are told that shouldn't be carried out.
I have learned a little of the ebb and flow of the hospital, also the different operations from different departments.
My co-workers are a bunch of hard working individuals. There are though the few that do not full fill the standards of our department.
There isn't any really a hard part of the job. Basically its pretty exhausting being on your feet all day picking up and delivering equipment from one end of the hospital to the other. Also the movement of multiple equipment can take its toll on your body at the end of the day.
I really do not have any comment on the most enjoyable part of the day. – less

Janitor (Former Employee), minto mine site yukon canada – April 30, 2015
Pros: bills at home are really low so is food cost
Cons: nowhere to go and blow off steam when in a mood.
A typical day at work liked the busyness, made your day fly by. I learned a lot about team work, and how to be used to isolation working in camps, i never had problems in that department. Co workers are – more... just like a family treat people with respect and thts what u get in return, but you always end up working with the unreliable types and unruley types thats life. Hard part of the job is no privacy, enjoyable part of the job is making new friends etc you cant name all the things. Was a fun workplace – less

Cons: long hours, working every week-end
My day starts buy counting the safe, give the break to the employ, do the inventory and after that give the lunch break. After the lunch i can try to have my 30min of lunch and then i need to supervised – more... the cafeteria, the coffee express and the restaurant at all time, sometimes i dont even have the time to eat.At 3h00pm i need to help the employ to close the cafeteria and count and balance there cash, do the deposit and write my report of the day on each department. I didn`t have a good formation as a supervisor and a cashier. My co-workers are good but they don`t take there job seriously. The hardest part of my job is to work every week-end, iv`e been working every week-end for the pats 2 years with no possibility of having 1 week-end off without losing hours. – less
Cook, Server, Cashier (Former Employee), Guelph, ON – April 21, 2015
Pros: Free food, benefits after 3 months
Cons: Fast paced
The job involved serving the same group of customers every day, as the Sodexo was within a manufacturing plant. This allowed getting to know the customers on a personal basis; the best part of the job. However, one must keep in mind that workers are given a set time period for breaks, and service must be swift as well as friendly. It is an easy balance to achieve after a while.
After hours activities provided such as fitness center and games room
Camp Attendant (Former Employee), Fort McMurray, AB – April 5, 2015
Fast paced environment and I enjoy that aspect of my job. Even though it's repetitive there are enjoyable diversions such as meeting and talking with the clients. My co-workers and I together with management work together. The hardest part of my job was being laid off.
low skilled workforce, gm out of touch with reality of day-to-day operations
Retail Manager (Former Employee), Kingston, ON – February 21, 2015
one of the largest employers in Kingston (600) 100 are fulltime unionized positions making 20.00 per hour but the other 500 work 20-25 hours per week at 11.00 per hour thus making a large wage disparity for employees who perform the exact same tasks and many low skilled workers

Pros: always met new people, and workplace was just an 8 minute drive from home.
Cons: the management provided very little or no support at all.
