Good place to work
Community Mental Health Worker (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON17 December 2018
Good place to work, really care for their staff and mental health/quality of life of their staff. Sometimes will deal with some troubling circumstances or emergencies but will be supported by a team and management if this does occur.

Things are getting bad
Community Mental Health Worker (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON27 September 2018
In the past 5 years since certain management has changed, things have turned for the worst. It is a toxic environment, and management is not to be trusted. Most people are unqualified to be doing their roles. It appears they hire just about anyone. Lots of favouritism occurs.
Referrals are based on nepotism of employees, or to individuals who's families donate money to the organization, it is not based on risk, need, or priority.
Many employees are looking for jobs else where, and there is a quick overturn.

high intensity in a fast paced environment but the coffee and people were wonderful
Medical secretary (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON10 March 2015
typical day included the following:
numerous telephone calls demanding narcotic renewals and other meds.
urine tox screens/lab pickups
lab reports
scanning electronic files
booking appointments
adding specialists in the schedule and filling the time slots
faxing
typing

The hardest part of the job was losing patients to suicide as most clients were mentally ill or transient.
The most enjoyable part of the job were the patients and their recoveries.
Pros
free coffee, lunch, interesting people
Cons
highly stressful but thrived on the challenge.
