Project Leader | Ottawa, ON | May 27, 2020
Very exciting project
The days were a blur, never a dull moment. I appreciated the opportunity to be creative and the opportunity to help others with the good that The Ottawa Hospital does for so many people in the Ottawa area and beyond.

Medical Transcriptionist | Ottawa, ON | Sep. 2, 2018
I used to be proud to work at The Ottawa Hospital (TOH)
Professionalism and dedication to quality transcription were once valued by this organization. However, today the bottom line is the amount of money required to accomplish clinical documentation. Quality documentation is no longer a valued asset.
Prosability to work remotely
Consmedical transcriptionists are not valued

Office Supervisor | Ottawa, ON | Aug. 20, 2015
Very comfortable.
A great place to work. Lots of room to move around, some room for advancement within the company (though minimal). If the salary is comfortable for you, then this is somewhere that will allow you to focus on your life outside of work, and know that you're 9-5 will take good care of you.

Contract Coordinator | Ottawa, ON | Apr. 5, 2018
Very political, poor teamwork
It was difficult to fit into a very political office. Non supportive group. There is a need to change management of the program, but the senior management seem to regard this person as valuable.
ProsNothing to say
ConsStaff morale is bad, and they do nothing about it. The bad gals get all the attention!!
3.0
Executive Assistant | Ottawa, ON | Apr. 5, 2018
A good place to work.
Difficult to find full-time positions in administration. The requirement for bilingualism when French is rarely spoken in the office or by management.
ProsEmployee Appreciation Day
ConsWork your heart out without support from management.

There is no fun
Start Time 7:00 am, get my PC up and running Check emails for all requests especially urgent ones. How to deal with the general public Management depend on our skills to help them with their day. Co-workers can be helpful or sometimes not Hardest part of my day is when others are in-considerate The most enjoyable part of my day is when I am able to help some one who is having a hard time.
ProsStaff Barbecue
ConsVacation

X-ray Technician | Ottawa, ON | Jan. 4, 2020
Depressing Workplace
The atmosphere of thee hospital is very dire, there's a hierarchy it feel like, where sometimes people think they're more important than you. While I was there, there were a couple horrible people, but some good ones too.

Questions and answers about The Ottawa Hospital

How should you prepare for an interview at The Ottawa Hospital?
Asked Jul. 31, 2018
Just apply, you can expect in this organization that they will hire anyone they know or like without necessarily knowing about the job applying for. If you manage to know one of the hiring managers, you are hired and will get all the training you need. We can see a nurse to be project manager and a trade become manager in no time and the exercise is “he has leadership skills”
Answered Jun. 24, 2020
Like any other interview, they'll most likely give you scenarios and ask you how you would react in them.
