No worklife balance
Medical Technologist (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON28 October 2018
No worklife balance. Management waiting to fire someone. No accommodations are done if you are sick or on modified duty. Employees are discriminated according to their age race and background.
Management looks only at their numbers. Cooperate work ethics is the culture of the management.
Even as a patient you shouldnt go to this hospital.
Pros
Salary
Cons
No work life balance and job security

Volunteer
Volunteer at Centre for Complex Diabetes Clinic (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON3 September 2018
As a volunteer at Brampton Civic Hospital, I committed to come in once every week for a few hours. My schedule was very adjustable and I was able to come in when I could. At the Diabetes clinic, I gained experience in health administration and was assigned various office duties. The assigned duties were pretty easy however they were strenuous as there were a lot of files to go through and a lot of inventory that constantly needed to be organized and updated.

Healthcare environment learning about health care careers at hospital.
Co-op student (Former Employee) –  Bovaird22 January 2014
A typical day at work would consist of cleaning, helping people in/out wheelchairs, walking with patients, talking to patients, and helping co workers with any given task.I learned a lot about oncology (cancer), rehab such as physiotherapist, and nurses. The supervisors on the unit are usually nurses or occupational therapists. I enjoyed working with the nurses the most because I love talking to and talking care of patients, including with elderly patients who need assistance with breakfast or lunch. The hardest part of the job is getting attached to the patients and watching them get sicker and pass away. You need to be emotionally strong to be a nurse. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the patients leave and go home being more healthier than before they came. Nursing is a career I'd love to pursue, it's a very rewarding job.
Pros
Helping people get better, taking care of people, work benefits
Cons
Long hours, full time, being there when people pass away, not being able to always help

Registered Practical Nurse - Neurology/Medicine (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON30 September 2013
I was able to obtain experience as an RPN on a dynamic team of individuals who strived to provide the community with kind and compassionate care. Hardest part of the job was definitely developing relationships with patients and having to say goodbye in the end, but at the same time it was very rewarding to watch the progress of the patients and building trusting relationships with them and their families.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
long hours

Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON23 May 2017
I have stayed at WOHS mainly because of my seniority and benefits. I find they tend to band aid solution problems, and they do not value nurses as valued members of their organization.
Pros
Lots of updates and new buildings
Cons
shift work, sick time management programs, poor incentives or rewards
