Busy but fairly good place to work. Fails to provide parking spaces for employees. Trauma centre of the province and now has the childrens hospital attached to the main hospital.
near the river where you can take a walk during break
Understaffing makes for a stressful work day. Healthcare workers have been asked to take a cut in pay. Staff are generally unhappy and this leads to conflict at the workplace.
Where I worked, it was a very busy environment. I worked 12 hr shifts. The department was a 365/7 days a week. My managers were great! They trusted in our abilities and were confident in our decision making. The job required problem solving, liasons with charge nurses, ward clerks, patients, doctors, clinical coordinator, all departments. It was a small department (about 40 staff). We all had to work as a team. It is a great department, awesome co-workers that all have become like family. I would say the hardest part of the job was walking away for a break, knowing your co-worker was being inundated with phone calls. We rarely took breaks, just because of that.
Great Place to work

I worked at this place for a very short time before my husband was transferred back to Winnipeg. I worked in their small outpatient pharmacy, with a couple of really helpful pharmacists, I learned a lot about compounding from one of them!
Very good place to work. Great management and good support staff. Got to self schedule and my leave of absence was granted with no concerns. Break times were planned well
teaching hospital so great medical staff involvement
RUH is a very busy place, but great care is given here! Management is very helpful and work hard to protect the patients and workers. The employees at RUH are all co-workers and work together as a team, making the experience beneficial for clients and patients.
Upgrades are ongoing but many more are needed to get this hospital to the levels of other big, tertiary, metropolitan hospitals. Overall, a great place to work at because of the enthusiasm of the staff.
doctors are great
no free parking for staff
My work was the same as at St Paul's Hospital. I am a people person and enjoyed working with the public. It was a very stressful position as we were the front line in Emergency. I did Clerk work along with doing the floor work. Such as stocking, ordering supplies, and portering patients to the wards and for tests. I learned to relax in chaotic circumstances and how to laugh with the staff. The management was fairly good as running an ER is a very hard trying to keep the staff and patients happy.
The income and Meeting people
Long 12 hour shifts
Taught Special Care Aide students for six hours a day. Primarily First Nation students. Also supervised students in Long Term Care settings for eight hours shifts. Learning about First Nation culture and tradition was great. My co-instructor was great to work with, providing support to each other. Hardest part was seeing students struggle with personal issues while trying to keep up with the course. Best part was how proud the students were when they passed the course. My coordinator was very supportive, letting me make most of the decisions but stepping in when necessary.
working with first nation students
the course was contract work, year to year
My current job position its rewarding. My coworkers team it's great they all have a great job ethics. unfortunately my company does not offer me any career advancement and that has let me to look for out side. I want to be able to build a career with in a company that offers the opportunities and room to growth.
