As a nursing student it was very educational and the nurses were very helpful. The hospital was always clean and tidy in the hallways, and equipment was always stocked.

A typical day at work in the ER was fast paced, The staff on were always supportive and the management I had was fantastic! The hardest part of the job was the shiftwork when my family was starting to expand.

They offer good benefits. Managers are easy to deal with. Though other employees feel superior especially if you are still a trainee. Parking is a problem as you need to pay for it everyday.

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.
Pros
Great Place to work
Cons
Parking!

I enjoyed working in RUH chemistry lab. They have competitive salary and great benefits. I love the fact that the test menu is very wide and the work is very diverse. Over all, as a new graduate, I enjoyed learning and working at RUH.

Cons
Tax deductions is very high

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.
Pros
The income and Meeting people
Cons
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.
Pros
working with first nation students
Cons
the course was contract work, year to year
