COVID-19 Screener in Ottawa, ON
enjoyed working with my colleagues
Management sucked and was rude to interact with. I felt after I was hired that had I disclosed I had a disability I would not have been offered an interview. I was constantly being criticized and Management kept tabs on people through other department staff so you often felt you were being watched but never knew by whom at any one time. Creapy.
No chance for advancement and hiring unqualified persons
The staff are great, management is quite horrific (high turn over rate for managers, or they are sick...pregnancy ...no consistency). There are little chances for advancement and no empowerment for nursing. The schedule is horrible and they change it every few years- The brockville site gets little to no support (educationally) and they hire non qualified persons to manage nursing-
Allied Health in Inpatient unit
Not a supportive employer.
The pay and benefits are great but that’s about it. Staff are frequently bullied and discriminated against.
Not an inclusive environment. Nursing staff aren’t culturally competent, trauma informed or use recovery language. They spend too much time online shopping
Ironically, staff with mental health concerns are also not supported and rather, are pushed out the door.
Clinical Team Secretary in Brockville, ON
The Royal Ottawa Hospital is not a fair employer
I would not recommend anyone to apply to work at ROMHC. They do not cate about their employees or patient care. For them it is all about the almighty buck! Very old boy club thinking and cover up for each other
Administrative Assistant in Ottawa, ON
An ok place to work as long as you never challenge management
Most frontline staff do genuinely care about delivering competent, accessible and respectful patient care but there’s definitely still a lot of old school management (ie staff bullying/intimidation that is often difficult to articulate and report). Ironically, the Royal offers extremely poor mental health support for staff.
