Mental Health Proctor III (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 22 April 2019
Strong support from management. Your concerns are heard. The position is highly rewarding and it is great to see the clients (individuals) making positive change in their lives and becoming increasingly independent. You must be able to work independently. Flexibility to create your own schedule. Opportunities to advance. Great experience.
Flexibility of hours, daytime hours, rewarding work, great management
Staff are often given direction or rules that are contradictory, told to make decisions using their judgement and then staff are told they are in trouble and they should have followed the rules. Very frustrating organization to work for.
Primary Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 9 April 2019
Very busy in the location I worked at. Some perks were the people I worked with were positive, upbeat and kept the work environment fun. The PCA's at my location were helpful and showed you a lot about the job. The hardest part of the job at that location, was dealing with some of the patients which would come in and be under the influence of drugs and alcohol and be very belligerent if you couldn't get them in to see the doctor right at that moment. The most enjoyable part of the job was the feeling of acceptance from your colleagues and the many lunches where we would have many laughs and kept the work place moral up.

Home Care Attendant (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 21 December 2018
I am always looking forward to meeting new clients and assists them depending on their needs and tasks assessed by the Case Coordinator. I have learned to deal with different kinds of people with different cultures and religion. The hardest part of the job is when the client can't speak English but as a worker, I was able to find a way to communicate with them through the body language and the use of technology. The most enjoyable part of the job is when I see the client happy for what I did.
Procurement Coordinator (Current Employee) – 300-5 Donald Street – 19 October 2018
I reviews purchase orders for hospitals and send them to vendors. I get to learn cost savings with freight and hospital items. I enjoy communicating with people and assisting end users with help when needed. Being comfortable with the position for a long time I don't see anything difficult about the job. However if I do stumble on a challenge and don't know the answer I know to ask questions to resolve it.
Being too stationary (sitting at the desk majority of the day)
Resource Coordinator (Current Employee) – Manitoba – 18 October 2018
Great work place to work for and the team work is amazing and the management that works in this department really shows that they care about each and every staff member. They go out there way to make sure all staff are up to date on training and management classes
Special Constable (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 7 October 2018
Interacting with all cultures of life, sharing their paths to where ever they may lead. De escalating issues that lead to positive results. Empathetic feelings towards unruly individuals has brought me to see that people are not necessarily bad people but are struggling to cope with personal trauma and their is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Health Care Aide (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 21 September 2018
While home care does do great work they have cut down the time they allow us with clients and the travel time is too short.I always felt very rushed. Tho it is very nice when your clients say thank you and that they really appreciate your help
Home Care Attendant/Health Care Aide (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 18 September 2018
homecare work was too much, have to see lofs of client for a little time. Supervisors /RC are mean they smile in front of you but hhye are back stabbers. Benefits sucks for homecare workers. Cannot use as work refference supervisors in homecare wont even respond to a work reference.
WRHA in Churchill gave me experience and hope in better future! My directors ,supervisors and managers was great team and always answered on my Questions and helped me if I had a problem! I learned so much in this 9 years ! I couldn’t speak English when I start in housekeeping,then cafeteria,daycare and finally I got job that I loved so much,Activities Worker at The LTC. Enjoyed working with elders and learned a lot from them! I hope go back to what I love doing and work for WRHA again in Winnipeg.
Home Care Attendant (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 17 August 2018
Best place to work. Enjoyed working as a homecare aide and healthcare aide as well. Good salary. Good benefits. Staff are friendly. Their yearly Christmas party celebration is something to look forward to. I really miss working at WRHA and it is my hope that I can be given a chance again to work there.
I enjoy working with the public and helping out when ever I can. Health care job security is very unstable. People who work for the WRHA are their to help, provide a friendly, prompt, and safe environmnet.
