Extremely clique based. No room for growth unless the Manager or Directors love you. Extremely unfair and different rules for different individuals. No consistency. Constantly breaking Collective Agreements. My mental health has hugely suffered since working with AHS. They treat admin staff horribly.
Experiences and workload depend on the site you are stationed at. For the most part, the managers and experiences I have had been very positive. The work can be quite heavy, and seemingly minor mistakes can really have an impact, but colleges are there for you. Overall, I genuinely enjoy working here, and would recommend to others.
Good pay, friendly staff
There are many good things working with AHS, the constant learning of new programs and skills to opportunities for other on site projects and classes. I have learned many programs and have had the opportunity to be a part of this business for 12 years inclusive.
Prioritize, organize day's tasks I was able to become efficient in new computer programs Can be very stressful at times depending on the day's events, it., meetings, meeting prep, rounds prep, respond and send emails. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that at the end of the day you put forth the best you could.

If you are able to obtain employment with AHS good for you, be warned a lot of long time employees are not welcoming to new hires, and tend to stick with their own groups. They also tend to be lazy if they are career public employees, as they do not usually go that extra mile unless they want something, and if as a new hire into AHS you get caught doing more than what is expected of you, anticipate some backlash from "lifers" they don't take kindly to new people working hard.
Alberta Health Services was a temporary job for me. It was a special back-to-work experience program I was in rather than regular employment. My orientation to the job was very detailed and enjoyable. I was allowed to learn at my own pace and felt free to ask questions whenever I needed to.
Great atmosphere and culture. Great people to work with. Very support and definite opportunity for career advancement. Learning environment. I regret leaving!
Great, caring people to work with.
Hard to get employed again once you leave
Responded callings in timely manner. Provided professional instruction according to the needs. Worked with high level of medical team. Understood every words would go to public.
Complicated politic behind the scenes
