    I worked at The Ottawa Hospital part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a big organized institution, the Ottawa hospital, with all its departments and services.
    You can enjoy volunteering at the General Hospital and make patients and visitors happy by helping them, and feeling you're part of the community.

    Cons

    You can feel bored at the front desk sometimes, when the hospital is not busy or you don't have much things to do.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be creative and give more tasks to volunteers, so that they feel engaged and preoccupied and productive more.

    I have been working at The Ottawa Hospital part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Job is relatively easy, but there is a significant learning curve. Great pay compared to similar positions outside the hospital.

    Cons

    Terrible corporate culture. Full-timers are constantly stressed and burnt out. Lots of drama, gossip, complaining. The floor employees you staff don't really like or respect you.

    Advice to Management

    Boosting morale somehow would help. Make staffing assistants feel appreciated because we feel like our work is never done and we're being constantly attacked by staff and managers sometimes.
