Most enjoyable part of the job

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Fast paced and each day is never the same. Wonderful learning new skills from all types of staff. You must be able to deal with many types of personalities and sometimes it can be very challenging. Very rewarding career for the most part

Fast Pace Work Environment

typical day at work would include, discharging charts, executing phone consults to doctors, screen calling and insuring patient confidentiality. Management was fair and tried to make the work environment less stressful and more efficient. Hardest part of the job was the grimness that occurs in an emergency department. the best was collaborating with my co workers to make work easier on us.

A very high paced and fun place to work

Where I work it is a feeling of family, we work as a team which is very high on my list. The most enjoyable part of my job is dealing with the parents when the first come to the unit, they have no idea what to expect. Their first priority is their child, so for me to make them more comfortable and try to make them feel at ease is a great reward.

every unit differs but stressors the same

I've worked on many units and I have to say that each unit is different, but the attitudes many healthcare professionals is a bit similar. some units are very catty, others more relaxed, but one thing that is the same is the gossip and stress by coworkers.

Float unit clerk in fast paced environments.

I love being a unit clerk. I enjoy going where the need is to help out a unit and perform my job to the best of my ability. We can be very busy with admissions, discharges, transfers and post op patients, let alone the orders we process on the unit. In the clinics you're checking patients in, making sure the proper information is available for their appointment, re booking appointments or surgeries and always being kind, professional and helpful.

Pros

co workers are usually awesome

Ahs

Cutbacks coming, looking for more hours. I love the staff but fear job loss will be coming. They hire to many casuals so I can’t pick up extra hours. Casuals get shifts first. Not fair.

Certain areas were better to work than others. Angry emotional staff hard to deal with.

Angry emotional nursing staff. Liked my job as ward clerk. Treated very well, most places. Work orders were clear and manageable. Breaks/lunch great.

When new students are employed their probation period should be six months

Students enter positions for practicum and sometimes get hired right after their course, most don’t get hired right away. Those that don’t get hired get caught in the unfortunate position of “if you don’t use it you lose it “, or maybe do get hired but aren’t given proper training based on their learning level.

Pros

Great wages, benefits, flexible schedule, able to pick up shifts

Cons

Click groups of staff

Great work place environment, good salary and benefits.

I have learned a lot over the last few years working as a unit clerk. Its fun, interesting. You get to work beside doctors and nurses. Sometimes they can be rude, but you just deal with it and keep doing the job. Non stop police, fire fighters, STARS and EMS. You get to see a lot of scary stuff.
