Great place to work
SickkKids is a place like no other. It was a great place to work. Always challenging, but very rewarding. Continuing education opportunities are plentiful. There is always a sense of "team" when you are working here.

Meaningful Cause & Respectful Workplace
There is a strong sense of community and pride that is unique to SickKids as a workplace. There are rarely any encounters, whether with staff, patients or parents, that are anything but pleasant. The pay is on the lower end compared to external institutions, especially as it appears common for staff to take work home and/or exceed job expectations. Otherwise, benefits are very fair and the institution has exemplified superb management through the COVID crisis.

A professional environment that fosters growth and learning
As a summer student assistant in an immunology laboratory, I was exposed to a range of techniques and equipment used in scientific research. I gained invaluable experience genotyping mice DNA samples and shadowing lab members through their experimental procedures.

I have nothing to say
I have nothing to say about this opportunity. My time here was short. Team members were supportive and helpful. A typical day is predictable and slow paced

Sickkids is a productive and fun place to work
Sickkids Hospital is a great place to work, the people there are quite friendly and considerate. I would usually start my day by jotting down a list of the things I needed to get done each day and completed them in order of importance, for example, I would first clean up the work queues with the aged claims that had deficiencies, editing and resubmitting them first.

I learned Anesthesia billing, Critical Care billing and Epic Applications software - Hyperspace.


Management is very strict in making sure employees respect one another and follow the rules of the company. They try very hard to create a safe, secure and stress free environment.


The culture of Sickkids is: Excellence, Compassion, Integrity, Collaboration and Innovation.


The hardest part of the job is completing the monthly metrics/reconciliation report on a strict deadline each month.


The most enjoyable part of the job was setting goals and meeting them. I liked being part of a great organization that provides the best care for children and support for their families.

Good workplace
SickKids Research Institute is a fast-paced environment and expectation for experimental results/findings is timely scheduled. The workplace culture and environment is very different per lab.

Exceptionally stressful and insufficient compensation
Unhealthy work:home life balance expectation. Constantly understaffed. No respect for senority. Desperately needs a union for ALL non-managerial staff.

Least paid workers in all the gta major hospitals
For the same type of work l, you get paid few more dollars per hour in other hospitals nearby. Advancement within the department is difficult because they hire family members or friends to have more leverage when it comes to a managerial position.
