    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at The Ottawa Hospital full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Money and work hours

    Cons

    Pay increase to support staff is too little and overdue. Constant oversupervision of front line staff and nitpicking on frivolous issues and work performance by undertrained Supervisors and lazy Managers who support the poor decision making and professional harassment by inexperienced supervisors. Takes over 10 years to become fulltime porter on a minimal basis if lucky . Manager is very prejudiced to hiring... more visible minority workers and takes forever to respond to workers complaints about workplace issues and suppresses worker complaints by targeting that worker.

    Advice to Management

    Train your Supervisors and managers on Diversity and ethnic relations and how to manage / supervise a diverse ethnic workforce instead of whitewashing everyone because the Managers and Supervisors lack training. Stop harassing your frontline proven workers and aging population of porters. Pay increase long overdue!
