Surgical Technologist (Current Employee), Grand Forks, ND – May 26, 2014
Pros: friendly environment
Cons: there is no slow period
A well organized hospital. It's open 24/7 . Mostly 32 hour weeks. You learn to track patient movements, when they come in, what room they checked into, what room they transferred to, what treatment they received, and when they were discharged. The most enjoyable part of the job is when a procedure goes smoothly. The hardest part of the job is that you're – more... always busy – less

Customer Service (Former Employee), Grand Forks, ND – August 2, 2013
Pros: discount for cafeteria meals
Cons: backstabbing, shunning, supposed to be secular, but overtly catholic, management straight out of the adamms family
Psychotic best describes the environment within Altru. Coworkers are encouraged to play rat, gang up on others and management is a gang of sociopaths within an old boy network. I was even interrupted by my boss while eating in a restaurant outside of work, so I could again be scolded for some bizarre transgressions perceived or created. They wanted – more... me out of there, so I left.
Do not expect respect, recognition for any beyond the call of duty performance or any sort of normal workplace treatment. This hospital recently received a grade of D for good reason. – less
OPC Urology Nursing (Current Employee), Grand Forks, ND – December 18, 2012
The most enjoyable part of my job is taking care of patients, because they are number one. Hardest part is working with co-workers that are not teams players. Frustrated with management that will not deal with staff problems.
