Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I enjoyed the work schedule that was best for me. First I was part time working all shifts, then I tried 12hr shifts which I enjoyed for many years then i switch to strictly nights shifts. Very good experience.


Close to the university, excellent bus access


There can be some rough shifts.

Stressful and unsafe place to work

This place is a circus. Used to be proud working in this hospital until new management came and it was a disaster and arrogant people! Not all new managers are bad but depends where department you work.

We worked as a team.

Working at Victoria Hospital more than me to become a better person. And I've learned a lot like interacting with my co-workers helping one another and of course taking care of our patients. I will never forget working at Victoria because people there are very friendly and accommodating. And they treat each other as one family.

Registered Nurse

Wonderful staff and great work culture! The most collaborative team environment. As far as job advancement they need more opportunities for onsite specialty training and career advancement the Health Authority is an incredible place to work and staff is so supportive. I moved for better pay as I was an LPN with acute care experience and they started me at the new grad RN wage.

The patients.

We aren’t payed at the hospital. We just volunteer. I love it there, I get to see my favorite patients and give them the support they need. I love socializing with the patients as they are very friendly and have the most amazing stories.

Great People/Management

Loved the people and management on my floor! Work place culture was positive, people willing to help and teach others. Short staffed, but that seems like everywhere.

Family environment

I enjoyed my time at VGH. The staff are friendly and it was a great place to work for 15 years. I decided how to structure my day. I started with new patient reviews, ICU rounds, huddles, patient discharge rounds, education and charting was my typical day.


Autonomy to do my work as I saw fit


Very busy, not much room for advancement in my small department

was fortunate to work on a great unit with a great team

The Victoria General Hospital along with most of the WRHA has been undergoing tremendous change as the focus has become even more intent on patient "flow" out of hospital. This along with diminishing resources and stringent guidelines and policies has resulted in a particularly challenging time in health care. I left the hospital before significant changes occurred. I can not speak to the situation over the past 2 plus years.


great team, supportive


unrealistic expectations by some of the medical team

overall I had a good team to work with hard working coworkers

It has been a few years since I have worked there. Generally I remember having more assistance for example if I was called upon to do a discharge clean in an isolation room I was given a helper which was usually the floor cleaner he would wash all the walls and floors while I washed the bed and furniture and all the equipment in the room so the discharge clean would take half the time.


getting more help with cleaning my ward


pay was less, short breaks

Old building, out-of-date nursing practices

Nursing practice is not up to speed there. The culture on the unit I was working on was pretty toxic. Hours/shifts and pay were consistent with union standards. Building is old and the re-circulated air gave me headaches.

Excellent Company

VIHA takes very good care of their employees. Although pay is not always competitive, they make up for it and more with their benefits. Management is very flexible.
