Xray Tech (Current Employee) – Wilson Ave – 19 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.

Summer Volunteer Program (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 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.
Learned lots and friendly management team.
Many requirements just to get started on the job (various medical tests).
Systems Support Analyst, Information Systems (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 August 2018
Dysfunctional corporate environment in need of an overhaul. Poor management on all levels. Employee moral in a constant low. Although the organization strives to take steps to improve conditions sadly there is much that needs to be done.
Summer Volunteer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 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.

Nursing Student Placement (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 May 2018
This hospital is equipped with some of the most up to date technology which makes providing care to patients a lot more easier. In addition, the facility is visually appealing as this facility was recently built.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 April 2018
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. The staff in the different departments I work with were all very friendly and nice. The volunteer organizers are very flexible to the hours you put in.
