    Pros

    SSW is an organization which encourages the best out of its employees. The leadership is open to new ideas, will action positive changes, and encourages the development of its people.

    Personally, every request I had to learn other aspects of supply chain was met with encouragement and action plans in order to fulfill my desire to learn. Many times my manager took on my responsibilities so that I could shadow and develop. I used this knowledge to better complete my duties and communicate to my employees with a better understanding of the 'big picture'.

    The mentality of SSW in terms of work ethic is to get the job done - no matter where you're located. The flexibility to show up when needed rather than a hard start and finish time helped my family life immensely. There are times I had to work at home after the kids went down, but it was a tradeoff to coming in late in the morning.

    The people here are a family and will assist with requests if they are able. Everyone wants to see everyone succeed because they understand that their success is the success of the clinicians, patients, and taxpayers. We all want to bring value to the Healthcare Supply Chain.

    Cons

    None worth mentioning. Every job and their knit picking but there are no major cons that would improve performance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting your employees as you do and you'll develop the best talent Ontario can produce.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Shared Services West (Oakville, ON (Canada)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process moved very rapidly and the HR team was very professional and friendly. The face to face interviews were very relaxed and felt more like a conversation rather than a traditional interview. I liked the conversational approach as it also gave me comfort with the managers and to get a feel if we will be a good match for each other. There was also an Excel competency test and a personality analysis questionnaire.
