Endoscopy here is to simple n less challenging, may need some interventional novelty

Awesome workplace

Had my interview but wasn’t contacted for 2-3 weeks!! After the offer was a further 2-3 weeks until start date. The department I was in was great. Awesome people to work with however management was in it for their own gain and didn’t care about the employees. There was an attempt to drive the culture to the ground but didn’t end up working!!

Pros

Great pay, great colleagues

Cons

Casual hours and direct manager

New NUM of Maria Lock Ward favours long term staff over new

The new NUM of this ward favoured long term staff over newer staff & gave away all the shifts to his friends. The NUM who hired me initially was amazing & very fair in shift allocations! Unfortunately she moved on & the replacement NUM was actually seen first hand playing favourites & then lied when no shifts were left for other staff that were hired specifically for ML Ward!The other team members were nice & if it wasnt for lack of shifts?I would have stayed! To go from 2-3 shifts per week, to none for 5+ weeks! Was unfair ...Its sad as I initially worked there as Agency Staff & converted to SJOG staff & have worked there on & off for a few years!But with this new num? He favoured his mates first & shifts ceased.He even hired more staff , however couldn't even give all the team shifts??!DONT WORK HERE

Pros

Some Staff are fair & nice

Cons

The new male NUM of ML ward is rude & favours his mates

Fun and kind

Great place to work. A hard working team but also very fun and extremely welcoming. Even during tough times, everyone stayed grounded and worked together as a team to ensure care and safety for residents but for the team too. Management was great and provided flexibility around my education.

Work and family balance

It is a good environment to work. Colleagues and management are friendly and understanding. I like to work here. Firstly I started working as a Volunteer Caregiver, and then got a paid job.

Bad experience

The culture of bullying, nepotism and unprofessional management is rife within the facility I was employed at, I was employed for 17 years, the last 5 years were an absolute nightmare, they do not adhere to their mission statement, it's not what you know, but who you know at SJOGH.

Flexible working conditions.

Good place to work in, very flexible with shifts and family orientated. Good teaching hospital. Shifts varied on a day to day basis. I worked in the peri operative area, it was always busy, got to know the staff, but not much of the management, although they took care of the staff. Good culture working together with diverse cultures. The hardest part was there is not enough staff due to the amount of cases on a daily basis. Most enjoyable part was forming friendships where everyone is treated equally as part of a team, there was no segregation between the medical teams, all worked together for one goal, that was patient recovery and wellness.

Collaborative and highly skilled workplace

Until the takeover of the business, it was a good supportive and busy organisation to work for. Efficiently run with local support at all times. Unfortunately since the sale- it has declined enormously.

I loved working at SJOG

I would love to go back, I loved the work I did, but we were very under staffed. I love working shift work and enjoyed the benefits i received at SJOG.

Ok

A small country town mentality, not willing to update to newer work methods. Staff overall not bad but can be unaccepting to new staff. Needs updating.
