General Hospital

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.


Good Money


Bad management

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


Acceptable salary range


Fear of job loss due to budget constrains

Good work place with some cons

As someone who was working a min wage job then coming to join Hamilton health sciences its like I struck gold most jobs you start new in this company you start as on call, no garenteed hours. Most jobs will start 22~23 an hour + 14% which puts you at 26 an hour. (the 14% is if you are on call) The jobs will have you working hard for your money, jobs like porting, cleaning, delivering mail, doing trades in the hospital, plumbing, construction etc working in the kitchen its a decent place for someone with no education and wants to make money and chill back Now the cons If you have a family and need hours this place might not be for you because like I mentioned before there's no garenteed hours you might be called in for 8 hours this week then 40 the next and no shifts for a whole week The managers arnt the and people LOVE TO GOSSIP. People love drama there everyone knows each other and talks bad about each other, I myself am porter I just deliver fresh towels and linen to wards and nursing stations and take the dirty linen down the basement, I transport patients to surgery and delivery equipment to where it needs to go Overall I would prob rate this place 7/10 good money good hard decent work but the people at certain hospitals make it awful, they talk bad and they love gossip they call in last minute and play games, you know the usual politics at a place, People love to pretend they work hard when they dont and love to complain.

Environmental Aide/Porter

The Hamilton Health Sciences is an excellent employer. Through terminal cleaning of hospital rooms, I gained experience utilizing chemicals and cleaning agents to disinfect all surfaces of the room so the next person to use the room would not become sick. I also gained experience portering patients and supplies through the corridors of the hospital in a safe and professional manor. When portering it is important to utilize the convex mirrors in the hallways to ensure you don't hit patrons or equipment while moving a stretcher or equipment. I also learned the importance of using proper body mechanics when transferring a patient from a hospital bed to a stretcher.
