Wonderful place to work, Management would jump in and help when need and would also work with helping you balance work and family life. Some things I learned are that there was people that wanted to see me advance myself and take my learning further and that a great thing to have coming from your work family.
I enjoy working at ARMC, I have grown as an RN here. My unit in particular provided great teamwork, a variety of skills to learn, and challenges that have made me a better nurse. However, nursing shortages as anywhere are at this hospital. I am very thankful for my experience here.
This is a busy hospital at times. I have learned how to manage my time and prioritize my workload. Management is nice and approachable but sometimes there is a lack of communication. As far as culture there is diversity here. Everyone tries to work as a team. The hardest part of my job is when there is a lot of critical things happening at one time and I have to prioritize my workload. The most enjoyable part is seeing patients get well and making a difference in their situation.
birthday cards, years there awards
may not get lunch if too busy, short staff sometimes
Alamance Regional Medical center is a fast paced, yet fun and enjoyable place to work. There are usual nursing issues at times (understaffed and above average nurse to patient ratio) but in general a good place with decent salary and benefits.
I was an employee for 21 years, working as an RN in the Operating Room/Surgical Services. The management will work you like a dog, humiliate you in front of coworkers and cheat you out of vacation time that you earned. The department is always short staffed, but when the merger occurred, many of us were downsized out of our positions. Before the merger patients were treated with respect and compassion. Now the management requires you to perform assembly line surgery. The physicians and fellow coworkers were wonderful to work with ,but management will make your life miserable!!!!
Learned a great deal . As a new nurse , It is a great place to start. It is small and you will have a better chance of learning without feeling scared.The doctors are people who actually will help the nurses.
Interesting work, chance to meet many different people, stressful work for the pay rate

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.

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.
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.
Working with a great team and doctors.
Sometimes we are so busy, its hard to get a break and even sometimes a lunch.
