Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Start work at 10am to 9:00pm. An hour before and after closing. Excellent Management, Very Knowledgeable,Responsible, Fair & ProfessionalWorkplace is typically relaxed, always professional and excepted to have your station cover. Lots of light shed of fairness and respect for peers. The hardest part of the job is the long hours. certain tasks on body restraining and the PPE provided is not ideal for long hours, can become uncomfortable. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know new people, experience clinical atmosphere and being a part of helping with the pandemic relief without being a healthcare provider.

Pros

Relaxed Enviroment

Cons

Long Hours

Decent placement as a student.

Decent placement as a student. In a typical work day I would do home visits to help children with growth and development as well as helping new moms. It was a good learning environment for a student but a slow paced work place.

Rewarding Experience

The initiative was funded by Toronto Public Health and we used the funds for research and community outreach. It was good knowing that the city supported advocacy and raising awareness on water-pipe tobacco smoking among at-risk youth.

I have had a number of different career opportunities since joining public health in 1988. I have worked in all programs in the division and have found my learning journey and career development in this organization second to none.

Pros

Interesting opportunities to work with diverse communities and nice staff

Cons

Wished there was more part time availability.

Good people poor leadership

Great staff at TPH but the senior management team is dysfunctional. They have lost a lot of good staff because of poor hiring decisions. TPH now undergoing a major review so perhaps things will change for the better.

Pros

Smart people

Cons

Bureaucracy, risk adverse, lack of leadership

Great Place, great staff

The work environment is great, but not something for me. A lot of really early morning shifts and constant walking can be a pain, but it serves the community well by preventing cigarette vendors to sell to minors.

Pros

Great Job

Cons

Bad shifts

Very busy and fast paced work environment. Chronically short staffed. Little room for movement up to management. Despite this co-workers and current manager are fantastic.

Pros

chronically short staffed, prone to labor disruptions with City of TO contract negotiations
