Colon Screening Program- Nursing Unit Assistant (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 15 October 2017
Amazing environment, great co-workers and an exceptional place to learn. Being part of this team is a privilege and has helped me develop skills to peruse my dreams. Overall, Vancouver Coastal Health has helped me realise my aspirations and more importantly, has supported me in my endeavours to further my knowledge and goals.
Perioperative Nurse (Operating Room) (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 11 March 2017
Although I worked there for a short period I found this job to be very good experience. I left due to maternity leave. Some of the nurses were very competitive and clicky, but that is to be expected. Management was very nice.
Nursing Unit Clerk (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 3 March 2017
A typical day at work for me is usually fairly busy. I enjoy working with my co workers and the diversity of the job due to my status as a casual float. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is being able to see how the different units run and being apart of their team.
I get to make my own schedule, I pick up shifts on the units I prefer.
Full-time Booking Clerk (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 26 October 2016
I learned patience, discipline, good time management skills and customer service. It was a busy work environment. Lots of things going on a the same time. It was lots of fun and a great learning experience. I really enjoyed working at the hospital.
Info Desk Volunteer (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 16 September 2016
Absolutely love helping patients, families, staff and other people find hospital services and departments. The fast paced environment and the multitasking is one of the areas that is a wonderful attribute. People are very friendly, and the hospital environment is somewhere where I have always wanted to be.
If you're wanting to get some skills, and you're wanting to work with a wonderful team of people, then this is an excellent opportunity. Just started in August, and it has been the best move that I have done! This is a wonderful volunteer opportunity!
Great experience with customer service and fun place to work
Communications Operator (Former Employee) – Vancouver BC – 6 October 2015
Fun place to work. I had to answer phones, and also work the information desks at VGH and Gordon and Leslie Diamond Health Care Centre, so I have gained a lot of experience with customer service. I also had to do "locating" which was dealing with emergency codes such as: cardiac arrests, and fire alarms. It was never boring working there as it was always different.
Portfolio Clerk (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 24 September 2015
The portfolios are impossible to keep under control. I feel it is because of a lack of willingness to reorganize them to make them more manageable . There is great potential but no one seems to want to do anything to improve the situation. Very disheartening.
It was a productive and fun work place even though it also came with a lot of stress but I handle stress well.
Facilitator for B.R.I.D.G.E.S (Former Employee) – Powell River, BC – 21 March 2015
BRIDGES stands for Building Recovery of Individual Dreams & Goals through Education & Support. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing I made a difference in peoples lives and had great co-workers. The hardest part of the job was not being able to fix someone overnight and the stress that came with that. A typical day would be making the posters, handing out work sheets to the clients, studying the brain and preparing lectures for the class.
Nursing Unit Assistant (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 26 February 2015
I like the ward where I regularly work, the staff is pretty awesome. Other wards potentially have grumpy and/or rude staff. It really depends on the ward you work as to whether working here is right for you.
