Great place to start the professional career
PMO Student (Current Employee) –  3030 Lawrence East, Scarborough, ON12 November 2015
It is a place which works with different processes and tasks, which is excellent foundation to support the start of career. My co-workers are friendly and proud to participate in a work environment like this. The difficult part on my jobs was at moment to apply the theory to practice, that transition took me time.
The hospital gave to me dynamic experiences that can acquire knowledge of how to handle.
The manager of the department which I belong, it was focus in the personal grow and develop of there staff even myself.

Helping out and sorting files
Volunteer (Former Employee) –  Birchmount1 August 2014
A typical day at work would be helping people find their way to their room or making new files for patients. I learned to work independently and under little supervision. Management was kind and help was around when needed. Not much co-workers. Hardest part was someday's there would be no jobs to do. Most enjoyable part was making people happy when helping them out.
Pros
Helping people
Cons
Not having alot to do

Under appreciated, poor workplace
Registered Practical Nurse (Current Employee) –  toronto,on22 July 2014
Short staffed, cancelled when not busy. Hours for part time fluctuate all the time. Could work full time hours then six weeks later you're down to 2-3 shifts a pay period. Weak union, HR is unprofessional and had difficulty even getting an ROE. Hospital is run down and is facing more cuts as they contemplate merger or investing in particular programs.
Cons
Staff morale is very low, poor management.

A very toxic environment - it's every man for him/herself, a non-supportive environment, particularly at the leadership level
nurse educator (Former Employee) –  General site16 April 2012
It's guaranteed that you will work many hours beyond what you were hired for and you will NOT be compensated whether in lieu time or $ (you're told that you can take time in lieu but when you try to you're treated as though you're stealing time from the organization). Its a very demanding job with little credit for your accomplishments and one that could quickly lead to burnout and very limited work-life balance.

We used to have a secretary to help with clerical type duties and that was taken away so we spent countless hours every month doing clerical duties to prepare for staff orientation (this was unpaid time) so this was really frustrating as the secretarial support went to a couple senior people. I was asked to read information over the Christmas holiday to prepare for a meeting but the director didn't think that it was important to follow suit and read her material, relying on us to provide her with the information we read to prepare her for the meeting.

The best part of the job was working with the front line staff and patients.
Pros
learned alot about my subject areas, worked alongside a terrific manager
Cons
overworked and under appreciated, no work-life balance, it's all about the scarborough hospital

Fast paced and challenging, a Varied experience
Pharmacy Technician Intern (Former Employee) –  Toronto, On.19 May 2013
The staff at the Scarborough General hospital in which i worked with had a very friendly and interesting staff. They were very vocal about their life while on their lunch breaks,providing interesting stories, and when it was time to get back to work, they did their work quickly and efficiently.
They showed an amazing amount of experience in their work and were very precise about what was required and needed to complete each task(example:what medication to obtain, which amount needed, and where to send it to).
There was also a variety of stations so you had a variety of tasks to do everyday,depending on what you were assigned to, that week. I think the hardest part of the job was to make sure you had your station's tasks completed before a certain time period, for certain stations, due to the requirements of the hospitals (medicaitons need to be sent up and restocked before a certain time to ensure the nurses had enough medication to distribute to the patients).
