Its a hospital, what else can i say
12 hours shifts throughout most units in the hospital. The people are what make the job. Management could get with the program though. No one is on the same page and every floor is run like it is its own entity, which can be very frustrating if you have to float. "Float pool" doesn't actually float around the hospital, and unit staff are often floated to floors with needs.

Great job, not so great morale/environment
I had a great time as a Medical laboratory technician. It was a great opportunity and experience. Management could've been more efficient and effective. Benefits were only good to cover medications. Full time at this place is a curse. Everyone who went full time got sick and didn't get any support.

Low moral
Management not willing to stand up for their employees. At times a hostile work environment, especially on some units. Not enough orientation for new employees.

Lots of hours then zero hours
Great people to work with. Great pay.
Too many weekends and unexpected days to work. Scheduling was a disaster.

Lots of hours in the summer then no hours for the fall and winter.

Very hard job to juggle with a family.

If you love to work and have no life, this is the job for you!

Nice place to work
Enjoyed my time working at QHC, coworkers were great and there was a sense of community as everyone would help each other out if needed. Loved having the opportunity to help feel like i was making a difference in the patients life and enjoyed keeping high cleaning standards.

Bit tricky for a work/life balance as any Health Care position, majority of my shifts were call-ins but it did help me gain more hours so it was appreciated!

Corporation does not support staff and doesn't follow union contracts
Managers hire whoever they want, despite seniority or union contracts. ONA grievances are staggering, with regard to unsafe workload, unwillingness to pay OT, fire staff for ridiculous reasons, promoting incompetent managers, favouritism, back stabbing, dog eat dog culture. Lack of emphasis on education, taking pay incentives for highly educated individuals. Team leads pick their favourites, targeting those they don't 'like'. Good place to get hired to add experience to your resume, then RUN as far away from QHC as possible. The corporation is only concerned with how they look to the public; you are punished for standing up for your profession, safety and voicing concerns to the public taxpayers who pay our wages.

Great place to work
QHC is a great place to work and I've enjoyed a number of roles in the past 5-years. We are fortunate to work with the most skilled professionals and our compensation and benefit programs are some of the best offered in the area. We are very lucky to have opportunities to grow and develop! So many Heroes at our 4 hospitals!

Worst place I’ve ever worked
I can’t even describe it. Nurses eat their young and they really do. I worked in medicine and felt like I was consistently putting patients at risk with my lack of experience and when I requested more training it was declined.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Everything

Terrible management
Management is horrible. So many politics. Your treated like just a number. Human Resources is a joke. So much favouritism in the whole hospital. If your money hungry this might be a good job for you. If you want to be treated with respect and not like a child, then stay away from this place.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Too much to write

stressful,, lots of responsibility, no flexibility
An atmosphere of stiff management, unable to voice concerns without feeling of flashback on self or others.
HR inflexible, not approachable.

Salary and benefits are great.
Pros

management team.

Not worth it
The management is not efficient, the senior employees are always backed up.
Their is no team worth, cheap politics within the organization. The pay is not worth the stress
Pros
You can easily identify their mistakes
Cons
They don't like new staff asking questions

Very hard job all together. But is rewarding in many ways
It’s a hard place to work all together but it is rewarding in many ways. If we were not so tight on money and always making cut backs in the health care field it would be much easier to make the place run a lot smoother and without the stress of numbers and how many discharges we can get in a day. I guess I’ve lost faith more so in the health care system rather then the job.
Pros
I live close
Cons
Shift work - no set schedule
