I served people coming in for cancer treatment and their families beverages and snacks while they had their treatments. I enjoyed my work there and made a lot of great people!

Doctors and nurses are very good, kind hearted people. Patients are very warm. Hardest part of the job is doing 3 jobs while meeting your own deadline. Management cover each other up so you have no one to trust, and they are very good on fabricating lies against Filipinos. Doctors, Nurses, Clerks quit that's why they are always hiring. No free food.
Pros
Great co workers. Monday to Friday schedule.
Cons
Very strong Racial Discrimination on the part of all Management

Working with Oncology patients is great. Lack of health care resources is the major issue but is with all health care institutes. Workplace culture can be supportive however some days it can be extremely challenging.
Pros
great wage - unionized
Cons
lack of financial resources as with all health care institutes

There was no real "typical" day at work. Everyday was different depending on the individual needs and requirements of our patients. The only "typical" day was every morning going to my office and turning on my computer and seeing what the day was going to bring. Changes were constant and your day could be directed entirely in a different direction if a STAT arose. Your other work had to be done, so you would adjust and find a way to get all the clients needs done. Management was not watching what you got done and if you got it done because it would be. I knew I was working for the benefit of the health of individuals, and this would be enough incentive to achieve to my 110%. The Management at Cancercare had an open-door policy. They were there to guide and help you when you needed it. Guide lines for Treatments were constantly changing as per RO due to Clinical Trials, and Management would pre-warn us of the changes and walk us through it before the start date. My co-workers at Cancercare were extraordinary. Now the World is not perfect, but I would have to say that 98% of the employees were all there for the same reason - for the benefit of improving the health of our patients. Therefore we all work as a Team to achieve this goal. I would have to say the hardest part of the job was when a small child comes in and we know we are doing pain relief only. The most enjoyable part of the job is when a patient comes back to visit after his last follow-up visit and says the treatments worked and they are either cancer free or in remission. You know then that you were part - more...
Pros
Job Security, Team work from the CEO all the way down, the willingness to allow you to expand your knowledge base by attending lectures and courses, Open door policy in all levels of Management, Benefits, the caring and understanding of the Health and Wellness of our patients and their employees
Cons
Low salary

Unfortunately, I was laid off due to changes in the various medical programs. Program assistants lost our jobs and had to re-apply. I was re-hired in the same department, but after a few months, the director left on stress leave. I was then assistant to a new director who took away all my responsibilities and pretty well bullied me out of the job. I had no recourse, as I wasn't in a union and Human Resources was on her side. I lost the job after 10 years.
Pros
enjoyed working with the nurse managers and staff and patients
Cons
low salary; no union; bullied by new manager after changes to position was made
