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. 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.

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.

Interesting opportunities to work with diverse communities and nice staff

Wished there was more part time availability.

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
