Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 April 2018
The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has a very friendly and supportive work environment. All the staff members make sure that you are comfortable. They also allow flexible hours to an extent to accommodate certain people's needs. You also gain a vast amount of skills and knowledge from working with the OPS.

Long Term Care Homes Inspector (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 September 2017
This job gives you plenty of opportunities to learn and challenge yourself. Co-workers were professional and were available and willing to help. Extensive driving and many nights away from home in a hotel is required. One egotistical team leader made work life miserable for many professionals who left as a result of this person's behaviour. Nothing was done when this individual's behaviour and unprofessional conduct was reported to the manager.

Program Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 July 2016
On a typical day I manage inquiries from clients related to Ministry incentive programs, contact clients about outstanding legal obligations related to incentive programs and manage Excel spreadsheet used as database.
What I learned:
I have learned the importance of continuous improvement. Business processes can often be improved. I recommended, wrote and implemented a business process improvement designed to increase client compliance with terms and conditions of client agreement with Ministry. I also created the conditions necessary to test the efficacy of business process improvement by creating control and treatment groups.
My co-workers are highly educated, hard working and well meaning.
Hardest part of the job:
In the public sector you have to accept that priorities and decision-making processes are often driven by media and big P politics. This can create challenges.
Easiest part of the job:
Once I learned the requisite program knowledge, inquiries from Ministry clients became fairly routine.
Most enjoyable part of job:
The satisfaction I get from seeing a task through to completion.
