Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 21 May 2018
The staff is amazing in some units but unit politics still exists. Everyone is under so much pressure. The hospital continues to cut funding for the patient care units and expect nurses to work like animals. There is no appreciation for going out of your way. God forbid you do something the management does not approve of, you will forever be the underdog. Managers are non-supportive and favoritism exists everywhere. No career advancements regardless of how much time you put in. it's always about budgets. Benefits are horrible. Pay is at minimum. God forbid you get sick and have to take time off. That is considered a huge sin in book of NYGH. OCC health will haunt you for life.
the staff regardless of how horrible the management is
Health Management, Leslie and Sheppard (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 November 2015
I was a porter/general help. I time in when I first come in to work, put on an apron and go directly to the dish room because the job is not complete if I leave unclean items in there or if something isn't finished by the end of my 5 hour work period.
I learned that teamwork is important because complaints and complements can both effect your long Gevity there.
My co- workers were positive towards the work and other people. I could see myself working with those type of people a long time.
The hardest part is on Fridays when I used to have to do extra for example: clean the deep fryer and other kitchen items because its the end of the week and I would have to make everything clean for Monday.
Free Lunch there were different food restaurants I had could go to within the hospital.
Benefits: perscriptions drugs, dental, parking
Can't discuss work hours due to kitchen regulations.
