How difficult is it to secure an interview with AHS? What can I do to make myself stand out as a recent Medical Office Assistant/Unit Clerk graduate with little experience?
Not difficult to know someone.
AHC offers the majority of the nursing positions in the province. It is difficult to get into an AHC job, but the benefits are the best there.
Does Alberta Health Services allow for flexible working hours? Or are the hours set?
Hours are set. if you have a position with a rotation, you can swap or ask for time off.
Contract or permanent employees (not Casuals) qualify for co-paid: health and dental 70%, vision $150/2years, $20 for massage, $35 for chiropractor, and optional group disability and life insurance at very reasonable prices. These are accurate to the best of my recollection.
For the orientation for Environmentals, Is the training all in one week with full shifts?
Orientation can last up to a month because you have lots of classes to attend.
Tip: Save money for parking.
