Management has no experience.No communication between management and employee.Too much politicsThis job is full time phone support which is not mentioned during interview screening or job posting, 0 documentation, unexperienced staff, no job oversight, IT manager has no IT experience very unprofessional, HR very unpleasant and RUDE! Environment is Garbage your working in a dungeon worst experience in my LIFE.
Work life balance is key and can be achieved working here. Great management as well as colleagues willing to put in the extra effort. Highly recommend working here.
Grand river hosptial is run like a factory. Many levels of management that you'll never meet, high work expectations. BUT fellow staff and teams are amazing! They do hire great people so you'll love who you work with. No complaints about any coworkers. Upper Management and HR and union brutal to deal with.
I sent 18 yrs working for GRH & I Loved what I gave to the All The Patients & Staff.I dident like all the back stabing from Staff that I could see & hear.there are really good positive ppl& there's the negative ones that I couldn't get away from .you tryed your best to talk to them but they wouldn't leave u alone..only to not work with u together as a team.

Working here before the new electronic health system, Cerner, was an amazing experience, I loved every minute of it. Now that Cerner is rolled out, inpatient clerical staff aren't really needed anymore, and the job isn't rewarding like it used to be. I'm sure there are still areas in the hospital where they still heavily rely on clerical staff, but most areas, not anymore. It's very sad. Nurses and doctors are given more work to do; we just want to help them.
Politics can play a part- make sure that you discuss the terms before you sign the contract, and are willing to wait it out. Sometimes you get lucky; And it is a hospital- no matter if you're day time clinic, you get the rush/hustle environment- so pace yourself.
Pharmacy managers need more education and training. They are incompetent when it comes to confidentiality. They have their pets just like high school, and continuously reward trouble making staff. The cancer centre is a hazard to patients and staff. Toxic environment that could use more professional staff.
Look elsewhere if you're a person of color. This not where you want to be, and if you're thinking about joining, DON'T! You're better off working somewhere that is more progressive towards people of color.
I enjoy what I do for a living and that is what kept me there. Not management or coworkers. The culture there is not great. At all. Very clicky. Senior staff treat new staff horribly but once you get through the training period you are on your own with minimal supervision.
Good treatment of employees, very sensitive to the individual needs. Good benefits and incentives, flexible hours allowed, reasonable payscale given the type of work performed.
