Registered Practical Nurse - in Acute Medicine (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 February 2016
You learn something new everyday. I have learned that in anything and everything there will always be something new to learn and you can make the choice to make it a positive one. The management is trying to do their best with what they are given. They are just human too. My co-workers work as hard as they can.
The hardest part of the job would be patient load due to cutbacks and a few co-workers who are inconsiderate of other people's time and reluctant to help and work as a team.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when you see patient's improving and happy with the care they receive.
Facilities (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 February 2016
TEGH promotes backstabbing and is a very toxic place to work. The only opportunities for advancement are if you wish to work in medicine, in all other departments it is pretty much a dead end job. Only training offered was the recerts that were required by law. They also allow bullying of staff and harassment which when reported to HR was not resolved, it was then reported to the Ministry of labour which resulted in all hours being taken away, not fired just no hours being given or offered but plenty of hours for the others in the same department. Some of the bullying also came from management itself.
Fun working place with opportunities to develop various skills

Food Services Worker (Part-Time) (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 September 2015
Management is bad. They have favoritism, you can not get a day off if you really need it. The hours are cut down to 3 hour shifts. It's a decent job if your going to school but they will still give you a hard time about your scheduling. You must work every weekend and holidays.
Volunteer Work (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 August 2015
I volunteered at Toronto East General Hospital and it was one of the most beneficial experiences of my life. A typical day there is very busy and crowded. I learned where all of the different wings of the hospital are located and had no problem finding my way around after only 3-4 days of volunteering there, I also learned what goes on in different wings of the hospital, which also helped me a lot when I was asked to work at the information desk in the main lobby helping visitors find their way to different areas in the hospital. All of my co-workers were very kind and helpful, I enjoyed working with everyone. The hardest part of the job was going around the hospital looking for abandoned wheel chairs and dragging them all back to designated wheel chair areas. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with patients, and helping patients.
