Fast paced place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
There are many departments to choose from, most of them are moderately stressful but there are a few areas that are very stressful. Sufficient staffing is a struggle for a large number of areas, as is the case in healthcare everywhere. This does create a trickle effect that can increase the stresses and decrease your work - life balance.

Toxic negative work environment employees treated almost as two different classes of people

Very negative work environment. Toxic work/employee and employer culture. Huge divide between medical professionals with degrees/management etc and the other medical professionals considered support/front of the line/reception/clerk/customer service staff. No room for growth/promotion. Pay is capped at 2 years. Can be reported negatively to management/employee health for taking too much sick time, put on a watch list. Code of conduct is a joke. If you do your job too well, it’s a problem instead of positive reinforcement/praise.

Pros

Free ice water

Cons

Salary cap

Toxic work place

Too much at once. Need a new CEO that cares about people. More worried about politics than his own organization and people. Many good people that aren’t acknowledged for their work and bullies promoted. No priorities. Raising concerns punished.

Pros

Benefits and pension plan

Cons

Toxic culture.

Negative workplace environment, higher level positions are not on merit or competency, lack of work/home balance, toxic work environment

Not a good workplace to grow & advance. Toxic workplace, HR is useless in intervention, fairness is not a concept considered or implemented. Too many negatives to relay in this small box.

Pros

No pros

Cons

Lack of action when issues arise, harassment, bullying.....

Strong Job Security

It’s corporate health care. There are good areas and those less desirable. There are good lines and lines that can be toxic. A good manager and a good line can buoy you up against the Covid storm of stupid family members, but the reverse is also true. I have experienced more good assignments than bad...so that’s good.

Pros

Plenty of lateral movement available

Cons

You have to pay to park.

Great place to work and wonderful team!

HHS is a great place to work. Strong leadership team and great colleagues across clinical and non-clinical areas. Healthcare environment is of course challenging, but we work with a lot of inspiring people who really care about the community and patients we serve.

Pros

Salary, benefits, team, workplace culture, patient focus

Great Place

great place to find and build what you are good at. Fosters growth .. only bad thing they depend and push having letters behind your name instead of hiring qualified people who have been doing the jobs longer and know better the role needed. Not everything should be about education

high stress levels

The Hamilton Health Sciences has become a very stressful environment to work at. It was very difficult to maintain a balance home and work life. Now with the Covid 19 virus, the stress levels are over the top.

Great people...

The people at Hamilton Health Sciences are tremendous. They work extremely hard, whether in research, on the front line, or behind the scenes. I would work there again.

Hhs hits

A great place to work in IT. It is a head of it's time in some areas and very slow in others. HITS has a work at home policy that has been in for for over 10 years as part of it's pandemic planning so Covid 19 was merely a bump for most staff except now need to spend 5 days working remotely versus 1. Also the department is involved on going QA and have a couple of parties a year and regular(monthly) full department meetings . On the slow side it is a government agency and simple procurement tasks can take weeks to get approved and completed.

General Hospital

The work is easy, can be a bit emotionally draining. The environment isn't very good and management is very hard to work with. The money is really good and benefits are great if you manage to get full time position. Most people work as part- time and pick up shifts, most of the part-timers get full time hours.

Pros

Good Money

Cons

Bad management

Friendly and Welcoming atmosphere

My typical day at work is cleaning patient rooms/area keeping them healthy and safe the hardest part of the job is seeing critically ill patients and seeing upset families the most enjoyable part is seeing how thankful and happy patients are when you clean their room for them they really are appreciative

Terrible place to work - Nora's Cafe

This job is made out to be the complete opposite of what it actually is. The training is an absolute joke. You're trained by reluctant employees that don't even want to train you and then expected to perform at a level that isn't reasonable. The schedule is ALWAYS changing and you're always being called-in or asked to start earlier or stay later. They ask for a lot and give nothing in return. Overall, the job itself isn't terrible if you have experience in food service but when you add unorganized management, no training, and expectations that are just unreasonable, it is one of the worst work environments I've ever experienced.

Typical challenges of a healthcare facility

Healthcare is both a great, rewarding environment and a scary, volatile environment due to constant budget concerns. I continue to work at HHS and I hope to continue to do so until retirement

Pros

Acceptable salary range

Cons

Fear of job loss due to budget constrains
