RN OR (Current Employee) – RIH Kamloops – 8 January 2019
I work in the Operating Room at RIH Kamloops. We are often short staffed but it is the most interesting job I have ever had. Kamloops is a wonderful place to live with lots of outdoor activities in the winter and summer. Love the sunshine!
Hectic Workplace With Enormous Stress and Responsiblilty
RN Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Penticton, BC – 7 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.
Stressful, long hours, no opportunity for advancement
Registered Medical Laboratory Technologist (Former Employee) – Revelstoke, BC – 10 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.
Community Healthcare Worker (Former Employee) – Golden, BC – 19 September 2018
Poor workplace culture, not particularly responsive or supportive of feedback. Mission statements do not translate to actual service provided. Enjoyed the actual work itself, in home personal care with clients. Scheduling issues, ei enough time to get from home to home an ongoing issue.
Bullying rampant, backstabbing managers, HR support pathetic

Food service worker (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 21 May 2018
Through Interior Health I worked for Royal Inland Hospital, and Overlander Care Facility. Both taught me a lot about working with a team and ensuring a time schedule was kept. Labor Intensive job, with busy hours, with good team building work assignments.
Care Aide (Former Employee) – Vernon, BC – 17 April 2018
I loved my job very much, I enjoyed interacting with so many unique people. It is a job that has become more and more physically demanding with less and less help. You are to move quickly as you have many residents to help out. I do not think they have adequate staffing, this in the end creates a difficult environment for all.

Cook/Food Service Worker (On Call) (Former Employee) – Cranbrook, BC – 27 March 2018
Would begin day preparing meals for residents, depending on the shift, and working with the other staff to accommodate Diets and meals for residents who were unable to make it to the dining room for meals, would also work with staff to accomidate the many different diet requiremnts for the residents in need. The staff was great and always tried to work together to help accomplish the tasks at hand.
