Great question but tough to answer! It truly depends on the role you've opted to take on with us. No matter the role, we're tasked with providing services to better assist the patient experience. Whether you're in a direct patient care provider role or someone like me (in Human Resources) we're all charged with a job that will ultimately impact the patient. That is both the most stressful and rewarding part of a position with us.

The pace within any large health care system can vary but it is almost always busy. We are privileged to serve a diverse range of patients and co-workers and in doing so our employees are always in demand. There is variety in our day-to-day work and as a result an employee will always be in a state of learning.

Depends on the location of the role. Those that are non-patient facing in a medical facility will be required to visit with an Occupational Health nurse prior to starting along with DHS required finger printing. Those in non-patient facing facilities will be subject to simpler evaluations.

Casuals are a fill in position (additional need, LOA, etc). The actual hours will vary depending on the position and the department. Best case is to ask the recruiter related to the role for greater detail on the position.

There is also a policy about how shifts per month you will need to cover to retain the position. One common practice is to plan for 3-4 shifts per month as a guide. So plan accordingly.
