Nurse (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 21 May 2019
Chronic staffing issues has left us with an unrealistic case load of +120 files. Dealing with unhappy members who were off sick for months without contact was a regular occurrence. Coming back from any time off was stressful because there was nobody really covering for you while you were off.
Low pay (less than what the nurses make provincially), and the benefits are horrible. The Indeed information stating that nurses make $150k is incorrect; I believe that is the pay for the doctors. On top of that, the Phoenix system is a nightmare - incorrect pay, missing retroactive payments and pay increases, the pay stubs are hard to understand that you have no idea if you're even getting paid correctly or not. Vacation accrual is dismal.
They are supposed to pay for your nursing license, but if the manager doesn't like you, you won't get reimbursed, despite this being a part of the collective agreement. Educational funding is also a joke and will barely cover anything.
Bullying is commonplace within this company. I have never been at a company where there is such multi level apathy towards bullying.
