Stay away from the Health information Department
Health Information (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 May 2018
The department is under new management who doesn't understand the needs of the department at all. Instead, just concentrates on micromanaging shifts and numbers with expectations that are unrealistic by industry standards. Management doesn't care about quality of work, only numbers, treats you like a machine. Training is terrible. The department has many employees that have worked at the hospital for 10+ years; these employees act like they are spoiled entitled brats. New employees are attacked and berated if you don't join their clique of toxic views. Pay is not competitive with other hospitals. For your own mental health, stay away.

Frontline nurses are under appreciated and overworked
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON10 January 2018
The organization has a great education bursary for those seeking professional development. Benefits are supposedly 100% coverage for full-time staff but are not that great (e.g. no coverage for orthodontics, very limited coverage for paramedical services). Great frontline teams despite heavy workload (RNs are non-unionized and management have taken advantage of this).
Pros
Education bursary, frontline nurses
Cons
Heavy workload, benefits

Horrible place to work due top managers and directors. Staff come and go so quickly. They come for just enough experence and then they move on. This is a place you can lose your licence due to poor managers

Good hospital, needs better leadership
Porter (Current Employee) –  381 Church Street30 May 2017
The job consists of pushing patients to and from tests, delivering specimens and bodies. If you are not easily grossed out and are able to keep up in a fast paced work place then you'll do great. Some physical exertion required.
