Stressful work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Work is very flexible due to work from home and manager is very considerate. So many shift being offered to part time, casual. Need to be flexible to get a shift and you need to be multi task to finish your work on time.

Pros

Work from home

Cons

stressful work

Cute and Adorable

Once a month expecting mother and their children come to a program where we teach the expecting big brother and sister's how to properly hold and care for the babies with the help of the toy brought along with them. We strive to remove the jealousy that some children may have towards the baby sibling by showing them how to learn from this experience. Once the teaching aspect of the day is done I take the parents and the children and I give them a tour of the birthing suites and the maternity wing.

Helpful and kind

On weekdays it really busy but when the weekend rolls around it become less packed with customers. I learned how to balance the float and the deposit and how to correctly open and close the Gift shop, the supervisors are very supportive and are very flexible on schedule changes.The Hardest thing that one will encounter in working at the Gift shop is lack of inventory that it sometimes has. But it all fine because you get to put smiles on faces.

I had an awesome experience.

Great place for clinical rotations, everyone was helpful. The hardest part was trying to juggle everything. The best part was helping clients. I learned patience. I tried to do the best that I could while practising within my role as a student.

Pros

accessibility

Cons

long hours

Great place to start off

Did an internship here and it was a great place to learn but lacked culture. I learned a lot from my superiors but there wasn't a position to be secured at the end as my department was very small and not expanding.

Great job.

I started working at Lakeridge Health a year after high school. The job its self is simple and the people of lakeridge health are great. The pay is competitive and there are lots of room for advancement through departments. Lake ridge also offers flexible schedules for students going to school and infant encourages it. This is an excellent place to work as it is unionized and includes a pension and benefits.

Some of the dept heads were above reproach.

From the time I first went to work at Oshawa General it was a great place to work. We had benefits and the workplace safety was second to none. We were proactive with patient safety and workplace ethics. Over the years it brought changes. Staff were laid off and not replaced, therefore making our workload very heavy. Nursing didn’t seem what it use to be. The standards of the hospital seem to be compromised. There was more stress. Certainly changes were needed and we had to grow but it seemed some things that were important were not a priority.

Pros

Close to home

Cons

Parking left a lot to be desired

Avoid the ER

The ER is ruled by people who exhibit a Grade 9 mentality. Cliques and bullying are prevalent. Unit managers try their best but the number of managers the ER has had in the last 10 years is evidence of the toll it takes on them.

Pros

Benefits are OK

Cons

Poor workplace morale, lack of Staff Educator and continuing education opertunities.

Great cafeteria to relax during break

it was an awesome experience where i learned how to be assertive with my geriatric patients, in order to provide direct instructions for the patients to follow. it is an amazing time also working with the staff members who were of great help.
