Job Work/Life Balance
Impossible to gain seniority as a casual.
Registered Nurse, BScN (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 13 December 2017
Senioriry is not based on hire date. Shifts are not divided to casuals, as the person with most hours has the ability to take every shift available. Hard to live waiting by the phone for last minute 12hr shifts to become available short call. As a nurse it is challenging. Poor pay. Do not invest in new employe education in soecialty areas-you must have before even having an interview.
Full-time Public Health nurse (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 29 November 2017
Position was enjoyable as colleagues were wonderful to collaborate with and family population very satisfying to work with. Disappointing that they were removing permanent part-time positions as many of the nurses are mothers and trying to raise healthy children and support families. Seemed a little hypocritical at time.
day time hours
services were being altered and it seems less support given to healthy transitioning families
