    I worked at University Health Network full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great working environment.
    Good people to work with.
    Rewarding tasks, at least for me.

    Cons

    Not enough money for capital equipment replacements.
    Sometimes upper management doesn't always value the expertise that technical staff have to offer, and what they do in the background to keep everything running.

    Advice to Management

    Must allow for a plan to replace ALL equipment and stick to the schedule. Otherwise, failures increase, causing health care to suffer. Staff and patients become frustrated at the delays, due to failures.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at University Health Network (Saint John, NB) in April-2011.

    Interview

    Telephone interview followed by in-person interview by senior managers. I was flown to Saint John from Ontario once both parties believed this to be a promising fit. Both interviews were friendly and relaxed and I met many managers and senior leaders for one on one conversations. The job I was ultimately offered was not perceisely the one that was advertised. It was much better. Very happy that I pursued a position in this hospital.
