Worked at Everymind, which receives government funding to ptomote mental wellbeing, however the managers don't practise what they preach. Targeted harassment and bullying are rampant and senior leadership at HNE Health tolerate it. Lack of transparency or acvountability. You'll get sick if you go to work there.
Pros
It's a job.
Cons
Toxic place

They have a good pay system and great training, someone is always willing to listen if you've had an issue with someone in the team. Working casual is rough but they try and make it as fair as possible

Management is based on seniorority and still working in the ways of the 80's. Managment are not qualified to perform their jobs and just bully staff. Staff do what they can but can not do to much.

there was a high turn over of patients we were running out of the planned menu food, felt comfortable to ask management about what to do, they advised me to talk to the diet aid. We discussed the options and with the help of the rest of the staff we were able to serve our food on time..In high stress situtations you need carm management which is what I got. Hardest part of the job is making sure u have put enough food out to cover any situation that might change. The best part getting the food ready..
Pros
left over food was for staff
Cons
afternoon hours seemed to drag on

I would recommend Hunter New England Health as a work because it is a great place to work. The people are great, the atmosphere is amazing. A typical day at the office is always busy and always something different I learned time managent skills and I learnt about files and coding. Managment and team members are great and easy going but are also there for anything you need.
Pros
Staff cafeteria
Cons
Not enough hours in the day

Working at Muswellbrook hospital in their aged care facility was fast paced and demanding with high care need residents. This was a very rewarding place to work and supportive senior management.

Hunter New England Health provided me with experience that I have carried over into my own personal life. I made great new friends in my co workers. management were very understanding when I had a personal issue . the loss of a loved one. I thoroughly enjoyed my time and experience at The Maitland Hospital.
Pros
made new friends
Cons
salary does not measure the work a cleaner does in the public sector.

By my own rating everying about working as a court diversion case manager was fantastic.... except job security because I was in the position awaiting a redundancy A typical day was never typical, attending court, new referrals, assessments for the Magerstrates Early Referral Into Treatment (MERIT), liasing with the legal fraternity. Other days were filled by working with complex clients, (counselling, liasing with various services, supporting, facilitating group work). My co-workers were great, some I had worked with in previous areas of drug and alcohol, we werea family. There was no hard part of the job per say except feeling the heartache of a significant other in relation to a breakdown caused by another,s drug use. The most enjoyable part of the job was a client completing the program, standing in court and the client being acknowledged for their achievement. HNEH management had an open door policy and was always very supportive. What I learned.... In 22 years of working and helping people as a nurse and drug and alcohol worker I have learned that we are all people,... we are all different, and none of us are perfect. There is an element of good in most if not all people, given the conditions and situation for it (the good) to shine through. It certainly shone through on many ocassions working in MERIT
Pros
Seeing people turn thier lives around and the comfort of working with great staff
Cons
No cons that I can think of

My day at work involved full reception duties, medical typing, liaising with outpatient clinics and GP's as well as working closely with the medical staff helping them wherever possible from an administration point of view. My co-workers were very dedicated and loyal and we all worked very well as a team. The hardest part of the role was not being able to be 100% up to date at the end of each day due to the fact that not all doctors were able to do their dictation on time due to their tight theatre and clinic commitments. The best part of the role was finding satisfaction in helping all members of staff and being confident to carry out my duties to the best of my ability.
Pros
Secure position with access to good training and support
Cons
Nil
