Seasonal yet rewarding
Training Assistant (Current Employee), Goshen, NYNovember 19, 2014
Pros: short hours and very friendly people
Cons: low pay and sporadic work
Typically sessions last about 3 or 4 hours, and usually take place during weekday nights. Class size can range from 10 - 50 participants, and differ between first time EMT's and current EMT's re-certifying. I have learned that different people require different learning methods, time constraints and conditions to improve their skills. Much patience – more... is required as well as a level head. Management is does an excellent job at putting the right people together so that optimal synergy is achieved. Everybody gets along very well with the participants even though tensions are high. The hardest part of the job is failing people, though this is necessary to protect the public from unqualified technicians, it heart-wrenching to see someone's hard work be delayed till next year. The most enjoyable part of the job is the excitement and joy I see on members' faces when they pass. – less

Never a dull moment!
Ward Clerk (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 29, 2014
Pros: fun co-workers and atmosphere
Cons: short-staffed
There really wasn't a "typical" day at work. As a part of the team in the ER at Toronto Western Hospital (TWH) I was consistently under pressure to perform at my best and to be alert for any instances which would require quick thinking.

I learned that I am able to work just as well in a team environment as I am on my own as there were occasions where – more... we would be short staffed, or I would be working the overnight shift.

A difficult part of the job was the turn-over. Working in such a stressful atmosphere with extremely high demands is not for everyone, and so we were constantly training within the department; which has its benefits and struggles.

Overall, I enjoyed my experience at the TWH. The staff are incredible and I really found gratification in my position. – less

Bed Reservations Coordinator (Former Employee), Lion's Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, BCFebruary 6, 2014
A typical day at work includes:

-Working with emergency nursing stuff and pursuing patient transfers to designed designations and different hospitals via BC bedline
- perform timekeeping functions, compile statistics, types and distributes a variety of technical and non-technical reports
- assisting with patient registration services
- transcribes – more... and processes’ physicians’ orders

The nursing and doctors were always friendly and were always willing to help when in need. The hardest part of the job was seeing certain situations not turn out to the way you wanted them to. Ex. Unexpected patient deaths.

The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing that you helped make a difference in someone's life. – less
