Food Service Assistant (Former Employee) – mckellar center north geelong – 17 August 2018
stay away from this place ...bullying is rife from the top to the bottom HR does nothing nothing be kind to yourself and go elsewhere from the cleaners to management harrasment is there none helps bullies get looked after bad bad horrid place
A great place to learn, as a student doing work placement there i was able to build my skills in high risk environment. Being able to tell how different conditions affect people in different ways was probably the my biggest achievement and favourite experience at Barwon Health
Resigned (Former Employee) – Geelong VIC – 12 December 2017
poor culture. Executives no idea of what really goes on. People on ground nice but do not provide optimal care to patients. Some staff exceedingly lazy. HR do not assist to get rid of poor workers/ staff who make errors consistently.
Good people to work with but lack management credibility. Salary benefits are good but most employees were not paid by their experience or ability. Payroll system was outdated and full of work arounds.
Ward Clerk, Short Stay Unit; & Front Counter (Former Employee) – University Hospital Geelong – 20 March 2018
An extremely busy environment with a great deal to learn. It was interesting and challenging. I enjoyed helping patients in an administrative capacity. However, night shift did not suit me (midnight to 8.30am shifts).
Registered Nurse Grade 2 Year 5 (Current Employee) – Geelong – 21 June 2015
Barwon Health is flexible, and allows me the ability to live and work in two different cities.The nursing team are lovely and supportive, and i feel that management also support their nurses well. the hardest part of the job is at times dealing with difficult families, but my experience in a psychiatric ward has given me lots of tools in dealing with difficult personalities. the most rewarding and enjoyable part of my job is working with the residence and making them laugh or smile, and providing quality care to them.
Maintenance (Current Employee) – Geelong – 23 June 2015
A new position with a ridiculously long and cumbersome PD - do they really know what they want?
Not prepared to nominate a salary range - yet expecting to attract high quality candidates. On guessing the salary range from web site listings seems to be around the $80-90k - good luck attracting the right person to taken on what is set out in the PD.
Think long and hard and ask questions before wasting your day responding to the KRA's.
Otherwise Geelong is a great place to live and work....
The professional training was fabulous, the work was varied and interesting. The department was well run with procedures set in place to optimise patient outcomes and staff development. Staff on the whole were wonderful. The ability to work with a range of stakeholders was a great plus.
Overall a great hospital experience.
interesting work with a great focus on improving proffesional skills
I enjoy working with the elderly and being a team player with staff. I have learnt to "expect the unexpected" in my job and to go with the flow so that the residents enjoy the activities in a relaxed way.
Driver (Current Employee) – Geelong Victoria – 30 October 2013
Early morning starts alot of driving around the region. Learned to expect anything that is thrown at me and I will do it to the best of my ability. To work as a team, driving in peak hour traffic around the Melbourne area, I get to work with some amazing people.
