Interesting work, chance to meet many different people, stressful work for the pay rate
Dining Service Associate (Former Employee), Burlington, NCJune 8, 2015
Pros: Great co-workers
Cons: Short breaks
A typical day at work involves food preparation, depending on what shift it can be breakfast, lunch, or dinner preparation, as well as setting up displays for different food items offered throughout the day in displays. This can involve preparing hot or cold foods in a timely manner. There is usually a high amount of cleaning involved as well. The job I was working each day depended on what my tasks would be. Some days I prepared the "front of the house" while running a cash register. Some days I helped customers preparing breakfast food items, or working a deli station. Some days I served hot foods, did catering work, or helped out in the back. Some days I did a mixture of several different tasks in the kitchen and in front. There were several managers involved in the kitchen, depending on what position each employee held. My co-workers were very diverse and offered a great network of people to work with. The hardest part of the job was the work load compared to pay rate. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with co-workers.

Cons: had to read alot of menus
Details

It was very easy. All you had to do was show up to the interview and they just asked basic questions. I'm pretty sure anyone could do it. The interview is really nothing to worry about. The one thing that caught me off guard was when they asked me to spell Tomato.

Great place to work
Oncology secretary (Current Employee), Burlington, NCJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: working with a great team and doctors.
Cons: sometimes we are so busy, its hard to get a break and even sometimes a lunch.
My work day starts at 7 am with answering phones, call bells continually thou out the day. My responsibilities include answering patients calls, answering the phone, making appointments, admitting and discharging patients to/from unit, emptying tube system, putting medicines in proper patients bins, making follow up appointments, calling consults to appropriate doctors, paging doctors for nurses and other doctors, ordering supplies for the unit and more. The hardest part to my job is when I do not have a charge nurse due to having to take patients, it leaves the whole nursing station to me which can be trying at times but also satisfying. I work with a great team of nurses, nurse's aides who work well together to make sure that the unit runs smoothly. My current manager is very helpful and willing to help where ever she is needed. With this job, you have to be able to multi-task or everything will fall behind. I guess the most enjoyable part of this job is watching the joy of a patient being able to go home and knowing you have had a small part of making this happen.

Staff RN
I work as an acute care nurse (Former Employee), Burlington, NCOctober 17, 2014
Pros: retirement, close to my home, great facility
Cons: as a nurse you hardly get lunch or breaks
I learned about many different procedures and assisted in some. Management at the time I was there was not too good. We did not have a full time manager, I hear today that it is great. My co-workers were great and helped out a lot. Hardest part of job was that it was hard and because it was hard I felt accomplished at the end of the day and that made it the most enjoyable.

ARMC
Technologist (Current Employee), Burlington, NCJuly 12, 2014
Very busy work environment.
Learned a lot about patient safety.
Management can be somewhat biased.
Co-Workers that have been there for many years, can be controlling.
Not enough time slots for the number of patients needing to be done.

Nice place to work, great place to meet people
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), Burlington, NCAugust 9, 2013
Pros: 8a-3p
Cons: interrupted breaks and lunches and effects on my body and health
I work with extended care patients and I start the day off with bathing, dressing and personal care for 10 patients. I then set them up for breakfast and handle their needs throughout the day. They include toileting, doctor appts, hair appts and getting them to and from activities in the building. I enjoy taking care of people and providing companionship. The hardest part of job is pulling and lifting resulting in wear and tear on my body.

Patient Care and cost effectiveness
MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIST/GENERALIST (Former Employee), Burlington, NCJune 9, 2013
A typical day at work begins with, preparing machines. My co-workers and I work strongly together as a team. We often find ourselves leading each other in all aspects of our jobs. The hardest part of my job would have to be, seeing the major health cost cuts and the negative effects it has on patient care. The most enjoyable part of my day is being able to provide excellent patient care despite rising health care demands.

Overall good place for newly-grads
Medical Technologist Generalist (Current Employee), Burlington, NCJune 8, 2013
Pros: good lab experience, good insurance plans.
Cons: short breaks, low pay, the town is nothing special.
Typical day: running back and forth from your department to accessioning area to pick up the specimens from the tube system and accession them as quickly as possible due to the shortage of phlebotomists in that area. Phlebs are mostly gone to draw patient while the 3-4 techs run the lab.
I am glad that I had chance to get experience through this lab as a generalist. I learned many good usefull skills.
Hard at times because the 2nd shift staff is almost always understaffed. Very fast-paced work enviroment, only some days are calm and nice.
Management changed recently, and 3-4 months later turnover rate drastically increased. Many travelers come and go.
The job is not hard at all once you get trained and used to the work enviroment, the hardest part is when you have crazy-busy days with shortage of staff.
Co-workers on my shift are very good. I enjoy working with them and appreciate to have such coworkers.

Medical Imaging Technologist (Former Employee), Burlington, NCMay 30, 2013
Pros: nice facility, good food, fair pay & benifits
Cons: management
I tried for 5 years to fit in but never could. Most of management is very strongly rooted in the "that's not how we do it here" attitude.
