Great place to work!
Dietary Aide (Current Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON7 February 2017
Great place to work. But hard to advance unless you jump through hoops and move up in seniority and it isn't always based on your qualifications or job performance. Great employee activity fund. 14 percent in leu of benefits if PT or Full benefits if FT. Supervisors understanding but not always on same page. But over all pretty good and understanding.
Pros
Great people to work with
Cons
Hours and lack of good communication

Helpful & friendly co-workers.
Housekeeper/Cleaner (Current Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON3 January 2017
Fast paced, high energy job. I enjoy the interaction with the patients, the job is physically demanding, which I enjoy as well. I work in a culturally diverse hospital. This has taught me a lot about other cultures, and the day to day struggles that some people face.

Overworked, Staffing Issues.
Registered Practical Nurse (Former Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON13 February 2017
Routinely overworked, at one time was called in for potentially 16 straight days, many times worked 10+ days straight or scheduled for 7 Days straight. Staff on floors nice but usually very busy and not enough help on floors. Would benefit from PSW's on some floors. Always in Grid-Lock and not may opportunities for patients to have a stimulus. Confusing lay out of the hospital. Some Management is great, others are difficult to contend with and care more about a bottom dollar than the care of the patient. Staff routinely complain of not enough days off, Burn out, Stress, many taking stress leave, not much at work stress intervention or willingness by management to acknowledge an overworked population. Personal Emergency days are provided but some management don't take them into consideration and will often reprimand you for the utilization of them. Hardest part of the job is the amount of non-acute patients taking up beds for the acute patients, Social work and PT/OT only available M-F with the exception of holidays and patients routinely not able to get up and out of bed and therefore become bedridden and decline in function rapidly, Some doctors routinely ignore pages or take a long time to respond to calls, others are almost always available when called. Most enjoyable part of the job is the extra training opportunities available to staff, paid by the hospital.
Pros
Extra Training available for willing participants
Cons
Never Enough Staff, Many Last-Minute Float Moves.
