"That's Humber"
Xray Tech (Current Employee) –  Wilson Ave19 September 2018
Very toxic place to work. Management is so far aware from the core staff that they have no idea what's going on - and could not seem to care less. Staff are over worked and stressed out, dealing with constant bullying from other healthcare professionals and doctors with no support.

Good pay, not the highest in the city and not enough to make up for the resources that are lacking. Human Resources even quotes the poor motto of "that's humber" in terms of explaining the lack of moral and efforts to change things for the better.

Work somewhere else. This place has soured techs that has aspirations to make a difference. It's where dreams come to die.
Pros
food court & 24 hour Timmies
Cons
no recognition or appreciation for staff

Organised workplace system.
Summer Volunteer Program (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 August 2018
A lot of enjoyable patient and visitor interaction whilst working at Humber River. The volunteer services team was very organised and friendly to staff members. Enjoyed helping many people in many different situations that may arise in the hospital such as directing people to certain clinics, fetching wheelchairs, folding clothing bundles as well as instructing patients on how to change in order for doctors to perform certain medical procedures. Overall a very good experience and I learned a lot of customer service skills as well as my adaptability in various situations.
Pros
Learned lots and friendly management team.
Cons
Many requirements just to get started on the job (various medical tests).

Registered Practical Nurse (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 August 2018
Nursing at Humber River is rewarding however, management makes it difficult at times. Focus is more on the unit budget rather than exceptional patient care.

Summer Volunteer
Summer Volunteer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 August 2018
Great place to volunteer in order to learn about the health care and hospital environment. Usually two 4 hour shifts during the summer. Students are placed in a patient interaction and clerical duties to increase exposure in both areas. You get a certificate for your volunteer contributions. People are very nice and great to work with.

Humber River Hospital is a very friendly place to work. There are a lot of different positions that are possible in case you want to explore which career you want to follow.
