they cant find qualified personnel to work in these conditions
You must work 12 hours shift that alternates day\night( you get paid 12 hours because you cant leave the premises) in the same week, so your sleep pattern quickly get ruined, They cant get qualified personnel therefore taking time off must be scheduled long time before, you have sick days but they would prefer that you called a week before.
This is a union workplace, during the week but after 3:30 you are alone and must do the work of the plumber, electrician, carpenter , fixe beds, wheelchairs and other equipements plus do your work at the heating plant.
Now for pay, they have every trick in the book to justify not paying what the union convention stipulates: if you take time off you get paid only 11.5 hours and the same time get nicked half an hour of your overtime. That day cost you 1.25 h! When you work a stat holiday you get time and half plus the convention tell that you are entitled a day off adjacent to the next rest period ! This is great but in reality you get 7.5 hours instead of 12 hours. You will be missing 4,5 h. Expect to get mad and frustrated. This is a place to get experience not a lifetime job.
Glad I got another job! Good luck!
Real close to the Hospital
there is a lot of sick people around.
