I'm sorry, was never my intent to offend

For Vancouver??You look no further than Hwy 99 and the Oak Street Bridge. Any person who navigates this daily is a hero. You ask the hardest question.I learned quickly that I know people and their motivations. I learned this in life.My best part of the job, and hardest, was (and is) assignation or denial of a certification. I know I will always be about safety, I have no choice on that.

This place is run by privilege employees

It’s a unionized work environment,and most employees have been working here since 90’s , job is not easy and you get less hours if you’re a newly hired employee, the only reason it works for me is because I need my daytime for side hustle, that’s how I make profits to survive expensive life in Vancouver


Good benefits


Less hours for newly hired (I know not everyone is in my shoes), and you need a lot of patience working with privilege co workers (I dont really work with them now, so it’s good for me)

Not fun to work with. Stressful environment. No care to staff.

Very stressful environment to work with, not approachable manager and very strict in terms of absences and special leave. Less pay and over all not a good experience at all no support from the management of vch worst experience during Covid 2020.




Long hours, management always check one mistake then you go to HR.

Lots to learn

Large hospital so requires a few months to learn the several routes. Sometimes heavy lifting and lots of walking. Coworkers are helpful and understanding when working with you. Most people people are friendly. It's a tough way to start a career because you are at the bottom of the relief call list to cover sic calls from fulltime employees. Have a second job handy. If you are dedicated to building you're seniority, take any calls and do the different roles you are trained for.


Great people to work with or meet.


Its a big hospital and gets stressful trying to find places you've never seen before as a new hire

competitive workplace, fast paced and detail oriented

supportive management, fun but very competitive workplace, stressful most of the times but support system is good. benefits and wage are good as well but may not be enough if you're planning to live around the area.

Excellent hospital to work at.

Hardest part of the job was having an acting manager who went around the department being a bully. Staff complained about him, but still he stayed on~ for far too long. Other staff are great, good team work. Interesting and challenging work.

Toxic work environment

This place is filled with miserable people that have been around to long and throw you under the bus if they don’t like you Toxic! Toxic! Toxic! Stay away.

Great place for immersing oneself in the medical industry among astute professionals.

Everyone is friendly, the hours are flexible for volunteers, and the volunteer coordinators are amazing! I learned more than I expected to through my volunteering over at the hospital.

Fun place to work

I work for a specific doctor at the Diamond Centre (Specialists), but VGH is a great hospital to work for. They are organized and get things done in a timely matter. The IT/building support team is fantastic. This place makes you feel important, so you feel great.

Many great opportunity to step up or promoted and recognized as long as you work so hard and being passionate with your job.

I am responsible for overseeing my team members as they progress. I double check if they need help with them with any issues. I keep in touch with the clients to update with them. I think learning and working with other people is good start of my career. Management is very important especially at work without managing your time your task wont be finish. Working with multicultural environment is challenging for me because, you learned so many different thing from their culture. I think when I started my new job I found my self I was not an organized as I wanted to be. I think meeting with new people and talking with them is the best part of our work.

Lack of support

It is a place of acutely ill patients giving you the ability to learn and develop your skills. Staff give it their all! BUT... VCH struggles with the demands on the healthcare system. Lots of layers of mgt but little staff on the floor giving care. Staff are burnt out and getting sick or having injuries. Mgt does not know how to problem solve with complex issues and often avoid them. Bullying occurs and if you are unable to cope independently with it you will be defeated.


Great experience for learning
