Alberta Health Services Employee Review
Health care is not for everyone
AHS is a government run entity. I have never been subject to a more incompetent organization in all my career. If you’re considering health care all I can say is the work life balance is ok but rest assured the government will come looking to cut your pay. I haven’t had a raise in over 5 years

Work life balance
Looking at cutting wages when there hasn't been a raise (not even COL) in at least 10 years. They expect you to focus on them and help them out when they are short staffed but no noted return. Very poor morale across the board no to many happy people working there right now.
ACPs appear to have little value with AHS. They replace sick calls and vacation with PCPs. ACPs are overworked and it is next to impossible to get any kind of time off. Go apply for the fire department or integrated service instead. Management encourages an “open door policy” and AHS encourages “whistleblowers policy” but if you do either of these expect to be investigated and stressed about losing your job.
