Great bunch of caring people in the maintenance dept. Pretty casual but sometimes stressed environment due to the need for immediate repairs at times. The place itself could have been designed with more back up systems or redundancy. Management was very appreciative when you pulled a rabbit out of a hat. The trades guys were all pretty cool and everyone helped everyone when needed. Good place to learn. Nobody watching over your back
Pros
People, Freedom, Killer pension plan
Cons
Shifts, Money

I was a volunteer who sat at the front desk and greeted patients and visitors. I would lead them to their desired location throughout the hospital. My fellow volunteers were very kind and helpful, especially while I was training. Our manager was very hardworking and kind.

Not a very fair or equal place to work. Very clicky place. People get preferred treatment. Wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone. Workload is very heavy for one person, work needs to be distributed fairly.

Managment has no clue about CSA standards. No rights to refuse unsafe work during probation time, false promises and no consistency in schedules or rules, Union is for employers not employee. Coworkers are great.

I have work for PRHC for a few years and I have enjoyed my time there. It is a wonderful place to start a carer as a nurse with many learning opportunities and flexible managers/hours.

I wish that the overall experience working the hospital would staff for more nurses, they are very over worked. Clerical administrative knowledge has been a great asset. Learn how to deal with situations with family members when I the ICU. I have a great manager and the staff are all wonderful.
Pros
Meeting new people
Cons
Not enough hours

Working for PRHC is a love hate relationship, I loved patient care and having supplies required for the job as well as the salary is decent. The major issue with PRHC is management, they encourage the staff to be disrespectful and inappropriate by their own behaviour. If you try to even bring a problem forward you will find yourself in trouble, and the one who being raked over the coals. Management is constantly pushing more and more on the staff across the board, house keeping, nursing, porters, etc. It’s not uncommon to miss breaks or leave late, and if you ask for Over time pay they will blame it on you for not taking your break or leaving on time. The pay isn’t really worth the amount of stress this job will cause you.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Work pressures, management and culture

A typical day was usually a fast paced and busy one. I would learn new skills or simply an easier / better way of completing duties from more experienced co-workers.

My experienced taught me how to work as a team as well as independently.
Pros
Meeting new clients
Cons
Spread too thin

Good place to work, it can be very busy they seem to think that less clerk hours are good but the patient ratio does not change so you work very hard which I don't mind because I don't have anything else outside of my job that takes me attention, e.g. childcare care/children at home so I am okay to work very hard at the job then when I go home be exhausted. I love the work and the patients

It was a challenging and demanding position for an experienced mental health nurse with clients assessed by both RNs and RPNs from four regional areas. Learned how to strategically plan and coordinate care for a variety of mental health clients in crisis situations. Management was laissez-faire leadership style, not intended for a new grad. Enjoyed collaborating with community partners, using motivational interviewing and linking clients to community resources.
