To much deduction, working as support staff Payless but deduction is t9 much.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
AHS should not double deduction from staff while they had vacation or sick leave or personal leave. We didn’t get double paid for vacation, it’s our save put aside for vacation while we worked ,then when we using those vacations time we not allow to rent our spot to friend that made me so angry with AHS.

Productive and fun workplace

Hoping that management team can spend more time reaching out and find time to talk to the workers. Aside from that it is a good place to work, benefits are okay as well.

Good place to learn how a typical day to day basis at work is like.

Excellent managers. Challenging but fun to be part of the team. I have enhanced my communication and interpersonal skills through working at AHS. Great environment.

Very bad environment

New management just came, hopefully they will be able to fix problems because they are young and very well educated, Situation is very bad for many years, lots of gossip, not respect between employees, lot of lazy workers etc...

Food Service

I’ve worked both small town and big city hospitals in food service. In a small town it is super easy to advance in shifts and you get to know patients one-on-one which I loved. It sucked when they cut back my hours and had to move back to the city. Foothills hospital is busy, but the employees there are cruel and mean and are just bullies. Seen a coworker of mine get bullied and the supervisors just stood there and watched. It was pathetic and I’m glad I quit. I wished I was still a part of the small town hospital but I couldn’t afford living there no more.

Worked here for a little over a year, and I've complained about harassment and bullying in the work place and nothing was ever done about it...…………...

I enjoy my job as I work mostly by myself and don't have to put up with drama

there is a difference between support staff and nursing staff, no morale or support from in house management to support staff. Nursing thinks they run the place

Productive and a gratifying life learning occupation

Long hours but providing positive food safe dietary needs in a long term care facility. Assembling snacks and specific dietary needs for tray service, for patients who require alternative food requirements for there specific dietary health issues. Keeping a healthy work environment, a positive attitude and following the guidelines for proper food health and hygiene. Building a life friendship, trust and relationship with residence is the most enjoyable part.

Productive and welcoming environment.

Enjoyed the hours, and working with staff and patients. Management was decent, but workplace culture was welcoming. Most enjoyable part of the job was working with the patients and family members. Hardest part was getting attached to the patients.

Good place to work

Enjoyed working with the girls, but supervisory wasn’t that great. Quite a bit of conflict and not very organized when it came to staffing. When concerns were brought forward to the supervisor, it wasn’t taken seriously

Pros

Working with the elderly

Cons

Continuous conflict

Toxic work environment

Lack of teamwork, lots of bullying and no respect in the workplace. Worst job I have ever had. Management has unrealistic expectations, and if you go to them with a problem you're not taken seriously. When you're unable to meet the expectations, the problem is always you, never with management. Absolutely no consideration toward the staff they oversee, borderline abusive treatment.

Pros

Wage, benefits

Cons

Scheduling, management, work culture

I liked working for Alberta Health Services

I liked working at the hospital preparing food for the patients. The hardest part of the job was seeing so many sick people and not being able to do much to help them
