Nurse (Former Employee) – Nunavut – 20 December 2017
payscale was top but expenses are same too. Extream weather make you feel tired of life, you need strong mental health, You should be people person, no phones,internet are limited, tv services are limited, people are rude. The best is the norther life experience, animals, cultural experience , wild meat and fish. Good start for career but be cautious to do not make mistakes. You may lose Nursing license with small incidence and you dont get any support from top management.
Good pay, Remote experience, cultural experience
Isolated, stress full work enviornment, extream weather related issues, No work life balance, poor administration, difficult to deal with people behaviour, some times donot get paid for the job you do.
Director (Former Employee) – Nunavut – 16 March 2018
Good money but it will be used up in rent and food and airplane tickets to get back down south. So it ends up being the same or worse than working in southern Canada. Really bad management in the department of health and wasteful of money - millions.
HR Administration (Former Employee) – Cambridge Bay, NU – 11 December 2016
The people of the north are wonderful to work with and it is a great place to grow your career. The pay and benefits are competitive and there is opportunity for career advancement. It is a distance from the major cities down south and the climate is colder, but it is a beautiful place to reconnect with nature.
