Health Care Aide (Current Employee) –  Oliver, BC14 March 2019
I have gained so much knowledge with working with staff members, and the residents. Having teamwork in everyday duties makes the shifts fun and enticing to keep growing as a person. If there is ever an issue that arises the management team is there to help get through it. Getting to know the residents and there backgrounds is very heartwarming and to just be there for them gives me a warm heart.

Residential care facility
Residential Care Aide (Former Employee) –  Oliver, BC8 March 2019
At the time I was there, the work environment was not conducive to effective management. The Manager of the time was biased against male care aides and went out of her way to get male care aides on no hire lists in any health authority. In its' current form they are now very inclusive and reportedly a better place to work in.
Pros
Wonderful clientelle
Cons
At the time terrible management, now the opposite

Data entry and confirmation (Former Employee) –  various okanagan9 February 2019
Worst place to work.
Hired, no drivers abstract before handing me the keys to the company vehicle in the first few minutes of entering the facility.
Orientation lacked on so many levels.
Did not promote upper management from within.
Warehouse Manager was hired at one point because he was related to another manager.
New warehouse manager took lots of credit for ideas I had given him for upgrades and New facilities and practices I figured out and planned.
Would railroad you if you didn't answer calls when they wanted you. Would book you in for short term shifts and give full time hours to others rather then follow the rules.
Pros
Payed kinda well for what work was required
Cons
Very poor and improper management, Lack of skills required in the upper management, Didn't care for staff, Treated all like just a bunch of numbers rather then people

Hectic Workplace With Enormous Stress and Responsiblilty
RN Staff Nurse (Current Employee) –  Penticton, BC7 January 2019
Be prepared to work really hard, miss your breaks and when you are broken down from overwork, your needs will not be accommodated. There is rampant harassment of staff by management and blatant favouritism. Very little opportunity for advancement unless you are a butt kisser.
Pros
No
Cons
Stressful, long hours, no opportunity for advancement

HOUSEKEEPING/ FOOD SERVICES (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BC21 November 2018
very high stress work place
management sets you up to fail

the hardest part was short staffed

Good employer
Registered Medical Laboratory Technologist (Former Employee) –  Revelstoke, BC10 October 2018
Worked with Interior Health for my entire 40 year career. No regrets and no complaints. Shift work is rough on a person but you adapt.
Working in a Lab environment can be extremely stressful. Since a patients diagnosis or ongoing treatments are based on quick turn around times for Lab results. The time crunch can be overwhelming sometimes and is more often then not.
Pros
Warm clean workplace, good job security
Cons
Shift work, weekends and holidays.

Medical Laboratory Assistant/Technician (Current Employee) –  Penticton, BC20 September 2018
As a union job, you are stuck at a certain level to remain there regardless of job performance. The morale within the department is very low. The job is good, but mentally draining.

OK depending on what you want

Supervisors seem more concerned about how they look to their bosses then actually doing the right thing. Some sites are really great, but the corporate office is a disaster.
Pros

Cons
Some bosses really couldnt give a toss about their people

Toxic work environment, solid pay. Doesn't go up due to being part of a union. Not a lot of room for growth without post secondary education. Would not work there again.
