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.
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.
I was a retail volunteer at HSC for almost a year. The managers and other volunteers were all very friendly and extremely helpful. The environment is very relaxed, but also very professional. I received plenty of training and work experience from this opportunity. I would definitely come back again!
Great work atmosphere. Co-workers are friendly and provide a family like environment. For the work you're doing, the pay is great. Lots of opportunity to pick up hours or full and part time positions. Job can be challenging when short staffed, but management it great about calling in casuals and sending in help.
Good job at times. But not always, pay was fair but could be a bit better. Biggest problem is the amount of micromanagement, and some super toxic co-workers. (Some coworkers were great) They really like to nitpick around there. Probably due to the 5 levels of management. Can be quite boring, but also has some shifts that are super busy. Some calls can be dangerous dealing with the unstable people around there. 12 hour shifts were not good. At least most of them switched at 6 hours. Excessive amounts of walking some shifts you would be walking for 10 hours. Then have to repeat that the next day. And even after completing your patrols management would still expect you walk yourself into the ground. Lunches were paid at least because most often they were interrupted by calls, except for night shift. Parking is of course awful around there so expect to bus or pay a ton for parking.
Paid lunches, good uniforms
Micromanaged, stressful, excessive walking, dangerous patrons
jump right in to learning at this hospital. People will help you but they expect you to learn fast and work hard. Important to learn how to work as a team, as a student, and eventually learn how to work by yourself. Rewarding experience overall.
I have always enjoyed working here, but Health care changes are making job security and enjoyment harder these days. I enjoy interacting with patients and their families.
Most of the day in my unit always busy lots of family members comming in and out with the patients, its look like growded market, its make me tired after working hours and sometime hard to deal to people over the phone calls eventhought the phone is not necessary on your unit. And onething i concern is the parking its really expensive no kidding i cant afford to pay the parking $110 a month and 1,320 for year. I will sudgest if you really dont need to drive dont bring your car and if you leave closed down there your lucky. Noted: if you find parking in the street your life is in danger because is not very good area to park as well.
Long hours feel tired
Higher level security with one of a kind experience and opportunities for law enforcement advancement
Security at the HSC is like no other, meaning there are easy days and some days where you're running to calls to deal with violent emergencies. Guards need a considerable amount of caution and diligence in dealing with individuals as sometimes being physically hands on is necessary as to protect the livelihood of others or until police arrive.
Week off every month, good union
Long hours, negativity among coworkers towards mgt
I really loved working in that facility.Eventough it is the largest and busiest hospital in Manitoba ,the working environment,staffs especially doctors and nurses and supervisors made the work place a stress free zone for everyone.so much to learn everyday .And I was so surprised to see the staff and doctors working with a smiling face always even in a very worse ,hectic and stressful day.
While working at HSC, I found the overall experience to be average. Sometimes I would have to stay well beyond normal expectations and come in at unreasonable hours. It was not my fault work wasn't completed, so why do I have to do it? The bosses/management were sometimes difficult to deal with.
good benefits package
Love that it is a large hospital and you have the opportunity to move around to different departments to expand your skill set and grow professionally. Its a teaching hospital, so there are always courses and people eager to teach. I like the diverse demographic culture amongst staff and patients. It has ok benefits, the Union rocks! On the other had staff can be very cliquish and immature - love to gossip! Management is superficial and doesn't always have your best interest. They also the exhibit blatant favouritism. HR is a joke/disaster, if they are not alway messing up on your pay cheque (short changing you on your overtime), they are losing or making mistakes on important documents like ROE for maternity leave delaying your income! Pallister Government turned the whole healthcare system upside down! Thus, causing a lot of people to be bumped or given pink slips from Management to Nurse assistants! I left! Not worth the drama!
Teaching Hospital! You will learn a lot
Staff very cliquish! They love to gossip. Management - UGH!
Great place to gain experience for short term stepping stones into law enforcement. Busy place with high amounts of violence and potential for violence which make it an always growing learning opportunity to get really good at your role.
Staff- Great to work with
Management- Have never been on the floor to actually fully understand what we do
