Licenced Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 29 March 2018
I was an LPN there for 11 and a half years. there is no job security with Eastern Health and I found that when you speak for what you believe in and your rights it goes unnoticed and/or you get in trouble. I quit working there due to nurses being overworked and no understanding for staff like myself.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – St. John's, NL – 26 March 2018
Very often working short, too many managers and not enough daily staff. Floats are pulled to 3-4 units per day. Regular staff hate to see floats and tend not to help them out with what needs to be done but would rather complain. Hardest part of the job is going from days to nights with not even a day in between. Most enjoyable part is being able to spend time with residents and getting to know their past and stories.

ABA Therapist (Current Employee) – Grand Bank, NL – 18 July 2017
As an ABA therapist for eastern health, I love my position. This job sets me with a new obstacle everyday, testing my creativity and patience. Leaving at the end of the day knowing I've made a difference in this child's life is the best feeling in the world. I love this job.
Co workers are excellent , a lot of help when you need it but poor management specifically from central staffing.
I am a casual worker with Environmental Service (Former Employee) – Newfoundland and Labrador – 9 March 2017
Co workers are amazing , a place where you can meet wonderful friends. Co workers help each others every well; however, the management is absolutely horrible , they act as if they don't care about you.
Central staffing, specifically, knows best how to complain when employee didn't answer call on time but does not care about what employee says
I suggest changes within the management or retraining of those managers.
I sometimes assume that most of those managers got these positions immediately when they graduated from Universities without going to gradual process of promotion. based on good performance.
1. Good place to work
1.Poor management system. 2. place to meet amazing cowkers
Licence Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Eastern Health St. John's NL – 12 December 2016
For a health organization they don't focus on a healthy work environment. Managers Pitt staff against each other. Managers do not treat staff well when it comes to scheduling and getting annual leave, family leave or sick leave.
Close relationships with co workers
Long hours, mandation, managers only care about the bottom line, leave units short staffed a lot
Personal Care Attendant (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 12 September 2016
Love working there spending time with residents and getting to know them and their families. Loved taking the extra time with a resident who had no family. I still visit some of the resident even though I no longer work there.
