    I have been working at Alberta Health Services part-time

    Pros

    Got plenty of shifts with them even though I was on the casual float team. Good job to have during post secondary

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Alberta Health Services part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Focused on helping people and patients that staff needs are neglected. Able to do a variety of tasks and projects in an emergency situation

    Cons

    Too much-added responsibilities that are not in the job description and was not affront and honest about it at the time of hiring.

    Advice to Management

    Need to break down job and list every job description that is pertaining to the job. This is a two persons job that they roll into one position that really need to hire two people for the position to provide quality service to the public and the community.

    Pros

    Good salary for a small town location. Great benefits; lots of opportunity.

    Cons

    Even though the corporate line is life/work balance, the office culture encourages overtime hours for salaried workers to get the job done - understaffed and overworked, which is good for the corporate bottom $$$, but not staff life/work.
