Casual, On-call
Casual On-Call Worker (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC16 January 2013
Started working as a casual, oncall worker for VIHA in November of 2011. Great company and wonder people to work with. VIHA has a great corporate culture with wonderful values that are felt. You really sense the sincerity with middle & upper management teams too!

My biggest beef with VIHA is the length of time with which one has to put in as a casual, oncall worker; it is extremely hard to get hired in the first place; then you have to start as a casual worker. This wouldn't be so bad if there were enough hours to live on. You can get near full time during some of the winter months, but even this at times can fluctuate from year to year. Mostly get hours during March, June, July and August with a few weeks here and there in December.
Pros
salary, culture, benefits
Cons
no hours and limited advancement

This job can be very hard and have negative effects on hire mental health. You have to learn how to leave everything that happens at work and not bring it home with you.
