Angular HttpClient Get Request Broken

I’ve been trying to use the HttpClient module and I’m not sure what’s going on but no matter what I do it seems to be broken, I’m consider going back to the ionic native HTTP but my issue with that is that when ever i user a post request with a header the app crashes.

import { HttpClient } from '@angular/common/http';
import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
import { UserProvider } from '../user/user';
import 'rxjs/add/operator/map';

  Generated class for the EmployeeProvider provider.
, HttpParams, HttpHeaders
  See for more info on providers
  and Angular DI.
export class EmployeeProvider {
  private apiUrl = 'https://*****';
  //Employees for the userID
  employees: any;

  constructor(private http: HttpClient, public user: UserProvider) {
    this.employees = [];
  this.http.get(`${this.apiUrl}employees`).map(res => res.json()).subscribe(data => {
    this.employees =;

When I tried the following:

    return this.http.get(`${this.apiUrl}employees`)

the stringified JSON that i got looked like this:


The JSON on the server looks like this:

        "employeeID": "7FEC7906-E826-4ACA-B6EA-D835CCDB5972",
        "employerID": "453A528B-CB3F-40FF-8BFA-7E5E6356BDFE",
        "userID": "1EF1B06E-0BEC-46B2-946F-A1BC6D4F60D9",
        "wage": 15,
        "internalID": null,
        "unpaidHours": 0.21944444444444441,

        "employeeID": "312D6219-53D0-42A2-A1DF-FB525CB32987",

        "userID": "641B65A3-4D5E-4B37-AA80-B906F9C90CCC",
        "wage": 15,

Hi , just change .map with .subscribe
