People can be awful

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The place as a whole is decent to work. Not all staff are nice but a good chunk of them are, not all managers are nice but a good chunk are, it honestly comes down to you and who you are. Don't get my wrong they're some great employees but you'll also have your bad apples. Just be true to yourself and don't let anyone walk all over you!!


Great co workers, some great managers, some patients are great


Always short staffed, you have to pick up the slack if someone calls in, management not always appreciativr when you go above and beyond

Being on call at the beginning is very stressful on your mindset.

If you’re regular part time, you have the option to pick up full time hours however will not know your schedule u til a few days prior. You can decline shifts and the union makes it hard for them to do much but they play favourites even tho scheduling is supposed to go by seniority.


Good pension, and pay


On call is very stressful until you get regular part time, but even then it’s stressful not knowing your exact income.

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

Horrible management and incredibly inhumane

I ended up leaving after the nurses in the CICU wouldn't stop mocking patient conditions, it made me rethink my entire university pursuit and I never want to work in a unionized hospital ever again.

Environmental Aide

A great place to work if you enjoy working in health care. Friendly staff for the most part. Busy atmosphere with Doctors and Nurses. Good opportunity to grow in my career.

Poor management and workplace culture

Poor workplace culture as they are very understaffed for the amount of work that needs to be done and patients deserve better care. Did not feel heard as an employee when bringing concerns to superiors. Complete disregard for availability when scheduling.

Productive and fun place to work in.

It is a very good place to work in especially if you like interaction with people. A very busy area but it is worth it. There are a lot of good people working for the company.

Great place to work

I have just started here and it is a great job and I am so happy to have been given the chance to work here. It is hard to get in but perseverance in applying pays off.

Environmental Aide

Job is alright, looking for full-time hours. Need to find a better job, with better pay as to me having 2 children. Never go up the chain of command, and just not interested in working with this employer any longer
