Stressful and Under supported
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON31 October 2019
The TOH is a huge machine. You are just a number. The bottom line is what matters to this company.

Management is very unsupportive and unknowledgeable. No pathway for employees to follow to be able to hold managers accountable for their poor managerial skill or performance.

Impossible to work and have a family on any inpatient unit due to restrictive schedules.

I would not recommend this hospital for a place of employment.

I absolutely love working for TOH; there are so many perks to working there, interactions with staff and patients. Only a short amount to describe working for TOH. I absolutely love my job.

Unrewarding, stressful and with a lot of clicks
Nurse (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON8 October 2019
I am there only because it pays the bill. It is not how I learned to practice nursing or how I want to do it. It next to impossible to advocate for patients or safety in the workplace. Don't get me wrong they provide all mandatory courses but applying it is another thing.

My day at work is registering patients and booking them for surgery. I learned different work skills on the computer and programs. The Management is very up to code and ready to help when needed.

Sad and full of Unions
Clercial (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON30 September 2019
TOH is a soul sucking place to work. The Unions have stripped every ounce of happiness from this place and it's now a work-to-rule organization.
Staff don't care about patients, dozens or privacy breaches, serious issues are buried in paperwork.
It's full of lazy people looking for an easy paycheque.. and that's exactly the kind of healthcare that is delivered. Sad.

The Ottawa Hospital Is a great Place to Work depending on the department, your needs and life Goals
Administrative Clerk (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON9 September 2019
The Ottawa hospital is a great place to work, if you are willing to work odd hours and work overtime at first. It can be hard to obtain a full-time job as all support staff positions are granted based on seniority.
Depending on the Department, it can be a flexible environment, with lots of potential for personal growth, abundance of learning and education. You can move up in a small amount of time.
Salaries are decent but raises are limited for growth for any support staff position and cannot advance past senior clerk positions, as management positions are almost always given to Nurses and Physicians based on the prerequisite.

Fast-paced Professional Working Environment
In-Patient Clerk (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON7 September 2019
The surgery floor I've worked tend to all be "organized chaos". Very fact-pacing that keeps employees focused and sharp. Our main priority: making sure patient's have the best level of care possible while they stay.

Interesting and rewarding employer
General Services (Current Employee) –  Ottawa Hospital General Campus25 July 2019
A typical day in housekeeping at the Ottawa Hospital is always rewarding. You get the opportunity to work all over the hospital and meet people from all walks of life. There are big opportunities for growth within the hospital as well. It is pretty easy to plan your life as the scheduling is very flexible here which makes it great for students or anyone with other jobs looking for extra work.
