Stressful place to work at. Get the experience and get out.
Laboratory Technician. Float/part time (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 January 2019
Working at most of those locations was like working in a factory with patients on a conveyor belt. Management complained about wait times but short-staffed locations. As a float/part-timer be prepared to work 3.5 hours and commute the same length of time to/from locations. They would also send me to 2 locations with 3-4 hour spare time in between, so I would leave 6a.m. and get home 7-8 p.m. With a 5-6 hour shift total. Shift schedulers would cancel/change shift on a dime and expect us to answer their phone calls and be prepared to work when called upon.

They would expect us to do online courses on our personal time, if we didn't finish the required courses, we did not get a raise the following year.

Floats are also expected to work every weekend (either sat/sun) especially long weekends and they complain to managers if you don't.

There is a lot of favouritism there, especially with the team doing the scheduling, the staff at locations would instruct /suggest who they wanted to work with, so if you speak Tagalog chances are you will fit in well.

There are locations where staff have to work by themselves for a few hours either first thing in the morning or in the evening with doors wide open, yet if you go to Brampton head office, they have security and no one can enter without access card, perhaps they should think about their front line staff.

Not a good work environment. Get some experience and leave.
Pros
Some co-workers are very helpful. Patients at many locations are nice too.
Cons
Horrible Management. Overall favouritism. Unsteady hours. Working weekends.

a good place to work
anonymous (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON21 December 2018
It is a good place to work. Like anywhere there is office politics, but the people are good and the management really tries. Pay is good. Vacation time is very fair. Sick time is more than most.

Its all about who you're willing to suck up to...
Rather not say (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON27 November 2018
Transportation department is run by under qualified management who strategically maneuvered their way to get the poison without it being posted for internal staff. Previous management either skimmed off the top from 3rd party courier brokerage companies or harassed other workers. Poor morale. Completely disorganized. Accountability only applies those who stand up for what is right, others who bury 'their head in the sand' fly under the radar and get by without taking responsibility.
Pros
Location, if you live in Brampton or Mississauga
Cons
No security, disorganized, poor work ethics

Terrible place to work
Manager (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON5 September 2018
Having worked at Dynacare I thought this was a decent organization. However senior management is terrible. They don't care about you. They say they do, but they don't. Do not work for them, you will be scarred for life. 11:11
Pros
The people
Cons
Senior Management, Ceo, Operations all don't get along and in fight all the time.

Nice place to work
Human Resources - HRIS Data Analyst (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON22 August 2018
Dynacare was a nice and friendly place to work, where I met great people and learned a lot. Hardest part of the job was lack of up to date systems which made completing tasks more time consuming. Overall, great place to work.

Good individuals to work with
Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON17 May 2018
Dynacare is an organization that attempts to be progressive but is not always successful at being so. The culture is laid back and people are generally good and fun to work with but there are challenges, mostly market driven.

Feels like family. Management doesn't care about customers or employees
Application Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON24 April 2018
Dynacare pays well and has a great benefits package. The people are great. Management is in Brampton Ontario they don't care about customers or employees regardless of the location. They are known for abruptly terminating employment by "restructuring the company" and eliminating positions. If you go work here, look for another job. This company is unstable and they are in trouble with the government since they monopolized the lab market in Manitoba.
Pros
Feels like family
Cons
Unstable company

Terrible Management, expect you to have no life and work all the time
Toxicology (Former Employee) –  London, ON12 February 2018
In certain departments you are expected to work constantly in over time and have no personal life while managers go home on time and come in whenever they feel like it. They fail to communicate many key aspects of work life with their teams and then punish them later for them not knowing. They expect you to be psychic at most times. They waste a ton of time with meetings that are informative, but with hold valuable information that employees should know. Managers are often seen crying and constantly complaining how much stress they are under with no regard for professional behaviour. It is a very unstable working environment and you never know from day to day if you will be fired or not. They constantly threaten us with losing large clients and therefore losing jobs but do literally nothing to fix the issues at hand except walk around and then crowd your inbox with emails of how poor of a job you're doing. Managers expect miracles to happen, which just isn't possible.
Pros
Nothing.
Cons
Long hours, zero respect, zero appreciation, zero foresight, constant put-downs
