Excellent Remuneration yet Terrible Management
Administration (Current Employee) –  Townsville QLD16 November 2017
A typical day involves assisting with all sort of emergencies, the job has variety with most management absent you are free to manage your own workload.

I have learned QLD Health does not value skill level on staff and promotions and job offers are generally appointed by office politics under the guise of merit based recruitment to make it appear they are being equitable. Management know all the tricks and policies to ward of any challenges to staffing decisions.

A lot of backroom deals go on during the recruitment process to either assist or hinder staff from progressing. Management love using "gotcha" word play moments in the interview process which makes it virtually impossible to progress in your career as they rarely offer stepping stone work opportunities to gain required experiences to answer their convoluted interview questions.

Management has a culture of incompetence and bullying which is so bad they had to bring in an external company to deal with bullying claims.

The hardest part of the job is management making decisions without any input from line level staff that have to work with the policies that they implement that cause more problems.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the remuneration because the management have no clue in managing an efficient budget along with the Government they throw money at the Organisation so if you can put up with poor management, stonewalling and other unethical conduct the tax and money insane benefits is why people work at QLD Health.

Should you work at QLD Health? Yes for the money but your health will
  more... be impacted as it isn't a healthy workplace if you are nice, honest sort of person. If you consider yourself good at intimidating staff, a bit of a smooth talker and are generally a nasty piece of work you should apply as management will welcome you with open arms.  less

Money is good, Bullying is at the top to the bottom
RN (Former Employee) –  Townsville QLD14 November 2017
You enjoy the pay but you hate going to work because people will make you miserable and are bullies! your heart goes at 150bpm thinking someone will pick on you.

I know someone who was bullied so badly, they continue to take antidrepressants a few years later. The union was unhelpful during the hard times too. Management is made up of bullies in some of the wards so no one to go to because they are all in a click.

I am glad to know something is being done about it for future young nurses
Pros
Pay
Cons
Bullies and no one to turn to

As an AIN it is a special job as you work with the most vulnerable and sickest in a hospital setting but you listen,watch and learn so much.
Assistant in Nursing (Casual) (Current Employee) –  Townsville QLD6 April 2017
i Have enjoyed working along side of the RNs EENs and allied health workers if you are willing to learn the staff are happy to explain things to you.You never stop learning.
Most are very happy to work as apart of a team .
Most important part of my specific role AIN is you work side by side with the patients/clients and to make them smile,feel safe you become someone whom makes their day.Love to see people smile.

If you dont want to work with bullies then do not work with Queensland health because they will do nothing to protect you.
Assistant in Nursing (Former Employee) –  Townsville QLD16 August 2016
I enjoyed working with the majority of supervisors and nurses, I think the organisation mostly is disorganised with lack of communication even with constant meetings to review these outstanding problems. They need to start listening to staff about there concerns about co-workers, management and supervisors as I have learnt from my experience at Queensland Health that the bullies in the system get away with everything, while the descent worker has to be exposed to this behaviour continuously. This is a major problem in Queensland Health though I believe this will never be rectified or given any thought, training and consequences for there actions, not a slap on the wrists and moved to another department in the system. When this occurs which is often, it starts all over again with a new lot of staff. Queensland Health should be ashamed of themselves for the bullying and mistreatment of staff they have allowed to continually be exposed to this abuse without any help from management or senior staff in giving discipline reaction when these situations occur straight away, Queensland Health should Give up trying to solve problems with mediation, as this can put an innocent worker in a vulnerable position with superior management.

Executive Support Officer/Administration Officer (Current Employee) –  Townsville, QLD22 October 2015
Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected of a big company.
