clerk ii (casual) in Newfoundland and Labrador
on 4 October 2022
Great if you have seniority, terrible if you're a new hire
EH does not care about new hires at all, and wonders why they can't keep casual staff.ALL new hires MUST be casual starting off, and may only become a permanent employee if they get selected when applying via internal postings - which will always go to someone with higher seniority regardless of skill.When you get hired, you have no choice in which department you work in. You are given a "site" which is the area you cover, which can be anywhere from 3-20 departments (or more), and you're expected to cover ALL departments. You get no real training most times, and even if you do, you may only be in a place for 2 days and then you might not be back for months, but you still have to remember everything you were taught 3 months ago.The pay is decent, there's swing and weekend differentials, and you get paid sick and vacation leave, but there is no flexibility AT ALL for shifts as a casual. I needed 2 hours off for an appointment and I was told I needed to use vacation time to get it approved.Mind you, the shifts are generally 12hr so it is impossible to keep appointments before or after work.As a casual, you also have no say over whether you want day or overnight shifts. If your "site" has any overnight departments, be prepared to constantly swap from 7:30am shift to 7:30pm shifts with only a day rest, and vice versa.The only redeeming factor really is the people and job security. In my experience department managers and charge nurses don't expect much from casuals because of the points I mentioned above, so they are willing to help out when you have questions or don't know how to do something.

Great workplace for learning and developing administrative skill set as you have to work in several different departments
Climbing the casual list can be a slow process so you have to be prepared to work years before getting a permanent position. Constantly getting knocked down due to seniority taking precedent. People from other departments who have more seniority can come in and jump ahead of you.

Worst place I ever worked in my life.
It is by far the worst place I ever worked. I had more managers than staff in my department. I I would not recommend this employer to anyone. I was injured there in 2014 and am still going to Physio every week because no one believed me. Absolutely a horrible place to work. I left there in 2020 and it is the best move I ever made. Had I stayed, I would probably be in a wheelchair now.

A thankless place to work
Eastern Health is a too large health authority. It is not run efficiently. There is no attempt to retain staff or to make their staff happy. You are replaceable to them. Budget matters above their workers.

Coworker made the work place fun
Hospital is run down but work culture is amazing, which make working bearable with the acuity we have. A great place to learn from and get your experience.
