It was okay

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I really liked working here. It was specifically with vaccines. The shifts were awesome. 3 days on, 4 days off and vice versa. They staff were nice, once you had a good team. No complaints really. Once you’re in, you can apply to anywhere in the city of Toronto.

Contract for vaccines

Nothing much to say…I administered Covid vaccines to the public for a short period of time at the Toronto Congress Centre. The hall was very cold and huge.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Long hours

Inclusive

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.

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
