Good salary & benefits

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall a good place to work. Remuneration is good. Benefits such as Flex-time and Flexible working arrangements help with work / life balance.Under resourcing does cause stress as recruitment does not match demand. Culture not great, management do not adequately address bullying behaviour.

Stress, long hours, toxic colleagues

Toxic workplace culture

No action is ever taken against management or midwives that bully others. If you're honest and ethical, this is not the workplace for you. Avoid +++++

Eye-opening and unpredictable

When I initially applied for the job, I thought it would provide many a challenges to overcome and indeed it has. The job for the most part is assisting the nursing staff with patient care (cleaning up, transferring from ward to medical imaging, etc…). However, it also includes more challenging times, such as taking deceased patients to the mortuary, this can be difficult for some but there is mental health services to assist with debriefing if needed, usually the “wardies” will talk amongst themselves, a somewhat “informal debriefing” From what I have observed and experienced myself while working in the auxiliary services as a wardsman or “Wardie” as most staff prefer to call you, you must be somewhat charismatic. This may be already obvious to whom is reading, but majority of patients you deal with in an in-patient setting are either geriatric or have underlying health conditions, being charismatic simply makes patient encounters less awkward and puts the patient as ease. one of the favoured acronyms all hospital staff use is AIDET (acknowledge, introduce, duration, explanation and time) If you are interested in the role as a “wardie” I would say, “give it a crack” not only is it a very diverse job, but you will have a greater appreciation for life itself.

in club and out club

if in the club you're good, if not in the club not so good, meant to be based on merit but not really. need to fix culture to be more inclusive and also remove middle management that don't add value

Not rewarding.

This company doesn't care about it's employees. No recognition. No opportunity to go further. No time to do annual education. Have to do education at home in your own time. Budget spent at the top and admin and not on the front line.

Good experience.

Good opportunities for experience, friendly colleagues.But management is not very kind, doesn't follow up after adverse situations, and can be harsh.Often felt like a number in a big hospital.

Middle management burrowed in like tics. Otherwise okay.

I worked for 8 years mostly in payroll/IT. My experience was pre-covid so it might be different now.It was always a demanding environment and occasionally unpleasant. Having to sit at a desk for 8 hours a day ironically didn't have a positive effect on my health. I found it had a passive aggressive way of combating union's efforts to ensure job security by increasing natural attrition in areas they wanted to reduce staff. The exception was middle management which was often 20 year veterans who clung to there positions for dear life.It would suit some people. Pay and responsibilities improve as you go up the ladder but if you're not enjoying the AO stream then I'd highly recommend doing something else sooner rather than later especially with the advent of AI.


Stable employment

Supportive environment

Working as a registered nurse can be tough at times as expected however my colleagues are all very supportive. The pay should be higher and we should get more benefits

Supportive workplace

Challenging work, great environment, solid ethos. I suffered a mental health breakdown during my time at QH and they went above and beyond to support me through this time and phase me back into work. Could not ask for a more supportive management and team. Of course, QH is a vast organisation and your experience may differ. I work at the Health Contact Centre in Brisbane.

Work is just ok, average management. Good vibe and good location. Relaxed for wfh, but can be stressful at times, especially when projects pile up. Pay ison par with industry standard.

Toxic employer

Whether you are clinical, admin, or support you will be treated like a paper clip. You will constantly be bombarded with emails about the brilliant corporate culture but you will be treated like a serf. Pay office will mess up your pay and leave. You will work overtime that you won’t be allowed to claim. If you ever step out of line you will be “performance managed “ until you quit.
