Not worth the effort
Cook (Former Employee) –  East Melbourne VIC27 May 2019
New Management - unprofessional, unapproachable, no desire to listen, all talk no action.

Management with no people or leadership skills that cause the workplace to become a toxic environment.

There are not many pros for this job. Staff are sick and tired of their jobs because the management are not supportive. They work you like a robot or a slave.

The rostering is poorly created and managed, employees; full time permanent, part time and casual are requested to work in excess of a 6-day weekly roster. There is no backup option if a staff member calls in sick.

My Advice to management:

Hire future managers with proper people & leadership skills. If staff have an issue or a problem, be open by allowing proper reporting and stop dismissing issues immediately. Allow staff to report issues directly to Human Resources if being bullied.
Pros
Friendly staff
Cons
Poor management, Staff morale is low, workplace bullying, understaff, miscommunication between staff and managers and exploitation

worst company to work for
cook (Former Employee) –  Richmond VIC26 April 2019
they work you to the bone, do not replace staff if sick or unable to come in. Managers/Supervisor's trained to intimidate and bully staff if you need to make a complaint/trouble shoot. Understaffed in all departments, so the place is dirty
Pros
great team of people who are dedicated to helping other people
Cons
it is all a big con - this company is only interested in $$$$$$$$$$$

Unpleasant environment.
Superstar surgeons and nurses poorly welcoming new members.
Absolutely lack of concern of asseptic international regulations of sterile theatre PPE (surgeons wearing old dirty shoes in the theatre, big circulation of people at disgusting floor cleaning condition with same shoe protective equipment) very dirty theatres.
Shocking lack of space for equipment storage in the corridors.
Lack of care to patient modesty, directly exposed to open windows where builders were .
Surprised with low level of care.
Highly underwhelming.
Pros
Coffees
