      Toxic environment

      Apr 27, 2021 - Emergency Department Clerk in Ottawa, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benifits (includes direct payment for dental)

      Cons

      Not well structured, Very challenging mentally, Working with alot of Type A personality, specifically (Nurses) Always short staff due to emotional/stress sick leaves therefore it's almost impossible to take time off. Clerical staff are under the same management as the nurses therefore it's very bias and its creates kind of a mean girl "chain of command". The union is not employee friendly. The hospital has a horrible patient care reputation which creates a very confrontational employee-patient relation. Very high turnover rate (people rarely stay more than 4-5 years.
