Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
What is the best part of working at the company?The care, happiness, and love I feel from each person who work there for the patients, the infrastructure, and the job they do. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?I think it could be those times you see a child sick and you know that no matter how much you are willing to help, it might not provide the cure. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?I feel absolutely comfortable with being there. Everything there is though and done to try making things lighter and easier for kids and their parents. What is a typical day like for you at the company?I would say, every day can be considered a typical day there! I don’t have any doubts about how much I love being there to help in some way.

Good learning opportunities, supportive

I got autonomy and independence as a research assistant. Pay is standard for research assistants. Learned a lot from a multidisciplinary team and also published 2-3 papers

Hiring process

Hiring process was easy and fast. Place seems like a nice environment to work. Haven’t started yet but will leave a review when I start working there for sometime

The team tries to build a positive and cheerful environment, but in reality the work culture and people are passive aggressive, can’t speak out honestly.

Overall a good place to work at. Great benefits and work-life balance.

Great benefits and pension plan. You start off with 4 weeks of vacation and accumulate one extra day of vacation every year after your 5th year. Great work life balance, you're not expected to work past your shift. Work can sometimes be mundane and there isn't a lot of room for advancement. Lots of people who are resistant to change and it takes forever to implement anything. Can feel very hierarchical.

Very Interesting Exposure

This contract position gave me new insight into a very specific area of BCCH, located at Sunny Hill. Most of my day to day role was liaising with provincial stakeholders in the province and getting to know the inner workings of Nursing Support Services. The team was creative and intelligent and taught me a lot. Everyone treated me like a valued member of something bigger, and I appreciated the opportunity I had, even if it was only for a year.

great experience

learned to think on my feet and gained a great reference. I recommend if you have just graduated and are looking for experience. You get out what you give to the time you spend there.

Great training for new grads. Friendly staff. At times unsafe working conditions due to low staffing. Lots of supports and resources. Minimal formal training post job.

Good job but too far to commute

I've been here for over a year and found the drive just too far, as I live in the suburbs. The job itself if quite simple and straightforward. Since we are unionized, we are bound by the contract, which is good and bad. Great extended benefits.


Good benefits


Long comute

Support growth.

Difficult to move laterally within PHSA, more realistic to move up then to a different kind of nursing. Overall the management is supportive though of your growth WITHIN your current practice.

Great place to work and such a dynamic environment where you can advance your skills and knowledge. BCCH has the most advanced technology in healthcare which makes the delivery of care more effective.

Volunteered in a lab at BC children's hospital as a research assistant. Everyone there was nice, helpful, and supportive of my own goals and learning. Would recommend to others.

its a good workplace and i hope to have more days but we are full staff

Its a fast pace job and challenging, but i like it, its learning and fun to mingled people. co-workers are great, very professionals. Hardest part are when parents are rude and grumpy. but enjoyable part are when patients and parents are so nice and when the doctors treat us for coffee and muffin :).

Inspiring place to work

A typical day at work is busy and requires lots of ineraction with clientelle I have learned many things since working at Children's, too much to write about. The most enjoyable part of the job is ineracting with the children and families
