Government job

While as nice as it sounds to have a government job, you are worked. One great opportunity though while working as a cook, the hours were good. 630-7 pm the latest, and typically every other weekend off. That was great. But no real cooking anymore. But granted you need to feed just shy of 1000 people.

Great co-workers but managers were not always the best.

Good work environment and great people to work with however management was not always the best. Not much variety in day to day work which is good if you like routine work.


Good starting wage, good working hours and benefits.


Poor managers.

Good for experience, don't get trapped here.

Get in, get your experience then get out. Would not stay more than a year. Job pays decent with good benefits but sometimes you’re dealing with things you’re under equipped and not trained for. Place can be pretty physical and violent at times.Work culture was toxic. Lots of good people do work there but also lots of slugs and bullets. Management was bad, may have gotten better since. Depending the area of the hospital there are some serious relationship break down issues between medical staff and security, primarily some psych units and children’s hospital.If you’re trying to get into some sort of law enforcement career. Great spot to get some experience and make okay money. Don’t get trapped.


Good for getting experience and to move on to something better


Toxic work culture, poor management

Good depending where you work

I worked at Psychealth which was great. There was great team work, nurses looked out for the aides and vice versa. Working at the women's hospital and the main hospital of HSC is different. Overworked, underpaid, the other aides can be ruthless if you're basically not part of their cliques. The nurses are usually very nice and helpful but overall, it's only worth it if you need the experience to move up in education.

Pleasant place

Volunteered there a couple years ago and supervisors were great. Really a good place that builds the foundations to work in other places if you want to continue working in a hospital setting.

I wish management were more involved

I love working at HSC but the lack of communication from management about our job security is terrible. We are constantly kept in limbo about weather we are going to be made permanent or not. It’s a constant stress thinking if you will loose your job in a few months.

You will definitely want to use this position as a stepping stone to better paying positions in the health field. If you are good with money;saving then this position will be comforting.

High stress little support and poor management

I would not want to work here again.The area is very unsafe to be in just getting from your car or bus to place of work is dangerous. Management is not supportive or respectful.

The Manager from HR Office interview , about my self, about the job, the work is a team work. if I have difficult, what I will do during working time. I am always punctual,and a had working person. If I am sick I will always call ahead of time. I am a respectful person and I am always ready to give help to my coworkers when needed. -Th typical day was not bad, I learn many thing, Management also was Okay with me. -Workplace Culture we are a lot of people different culture. -The hardest part of the job, was If I sign the the sit to work, my Coworker late to come, that was most hardest for me. -The most enjoyable part of the job, was if I was busy I see the time going fast. -Health Science Center was best place for work, and enjoyable place

Overall good experience

Stressful but enjoyable most of the times. Gained large amount of knowledge. Sense of satisfaction when you see patient health improve after treatment or two. Manager was extremely supportive.

Good place yo work

Job itself is good. Managers are spread too thin and therefore not very available. The union really does nothing for you except take your money. Healthcare cuts have been hard.


Great docs and nurses to work with


Lousy Union and too much bureaucracy.

Great Learning Experience

I volunteered in the gift shop and flower shop, occasionally you go around the hospital to deliver flowers and mail. It's a great place to start volunteering and gain work experience. They train you well and it has a slower paced environment which leaves a lot of time for learning and asking questions. The staff is also really friendly and understanding of students' schedules.
