Overall Reviews at Alberta Health Services
Registered Nurse - Emergency Room | Alberta, VA | Dec 11, 2018
Mostly happy with AHS. Lots of shifts available. Lines could be more varied and it would be nice to have more flexibility with swapping shifts and having vacation approved.

Enjoy working with the co workers whom have been there the longest
I apprenticed the knowledge and training I received from certain coworkers. I enjoyed working with others and having a great work atmosphere. I enjoyed the fast pace work. I very much liked being able to have contact with the general public and still maintain proper work ethic

Very stressful environment!
As HCAs, we are understaffed most of the time, very busy and not supported enough by nurses, managers and all the other numerous bosses. All these bosses force us to do more and more tasks, does not matter if we are qualified for it or not. As the work is not hard enough, there are staff members that are lazy, gossiping, bullying and harassing whoever they do not like and create a very toxic environment to work in. Especially casuals are not appreciated.
Generally, there is a lot of burn out, injuries of different types, WCBs... Basically, nobody cares about our wellbeing, we are just numbers for bosses and everybody else, including some clients and their family members.
Management, directors and all the other “big bosses” are overpayed and basically do not care to solve the real problems - just to leave them alone and not face any issues that need to be solved.
Further cuts (in pay and jobs) are on the way, current Alberta government want to sell all the remaining nursing homes and services that are still a part of Alberta Health Services.
ProsNot sure any more.
ConsBad management, bullying and harassment at work, etc.

Great Place to Work
Great Management. Large salaries with good benefits. After you are done your training it is really on the individual to complete all work. Good workplace culture.
Dietitian | Alberta, VA | Mar 14, 2019
Worked as a clinical dietitian for 3 years. I really enjoyed the diversity of my roles and the ability to constantly learn new things. We had great multidisciplinary teams. One downfall is that as a new grad, you often have to take a position in a smaller centre outside of Edmonton or Calgary if you want a full-time job and then try to get back to the city afterward. I honestly could have seen myself working with AHS for my entire career if my husband hadn't been relocated for work. I absolutely loved my time there!
ProsPay, Coworkers, Lots of Resources
