Labourer (Former Employee) – Owen Sound, ON – 28 March 2018
GBHS has habit of hiring supervisors/managers with very little previous experience resulting in micromanaging employees and limited ability to communicate effectively with their employees.
Managers also earn bonuses when they save employer money throughout the year which misplaces their priorities.
This employer also has actual control over short term disability benefits and has on many occasions withheld funds until an employee has been forced to return to work even with medical evidence supporting employee. Due to the size of the employer, the union has little ability to help without filing grievances which can take years to reconcile.
Medical Device Reprocessing Technician (Current Employee) – Owen Sound, ON – 15 January 2018
Duties are good and rural sites are great. Take promises with a grain of salt, you will be fine if you’re liked, union caters to management, and good luck with the schedule if you have a family...they don’t actually care if you do.
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Owen Sound, ON – 23 May 2017
I haven't worked at other hospital organizations in Ontario, but I think Grey Bruce Health Services is a good place to work. I like my colleagues, management is pretty good. BUT, I'm not a nurse and can't speak to that work experience. I've worked in Support Services roles and they were good, just not roles in which career advancement is really possible.
Management were one sided, didn't listen. Had friends who they catered to, and punished people who weren't friends twisted contract to suit their needs couldn't get ahead unless you were a friend or relative some staff were bully's and they weren't addressed causing undue stress on employees

Good place to learn lots of new things and meet new people
Patient Helper (Former Employee) – Owen Sound, ON – 2 August 2014
As a CO-OP student, I didn't have the authority to do a lot of stuff, but I cleaned out waste bins, and sanitized the examination rooms after patients had left. I took vital signs on patients, and brought up patient's x-rays on the computers in the rooms.
