Great place to get experience but no way to advance
Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Northern California – October 10, 2017
After working for many years here there is little to no way to advance either in job position or pay. Raises we far in between, about 2 raises in those 6 years. Typical day are Pap Setups, ONO Capnography testing, troubleshooting all equipment, being in charge of all invasive and non invasive patient files and scheduling Vent checks and PM Due Vents for exchange. Coordinate all patient discharge vent setups from the hospital, including instructions for all family and nursing staff on use of all equipment. Management changes all the time and so does the direction of the company. Hardest part of the job is the on-call that you would have to split with other RTs at the branch, if there is only one other RT at the branch it looks like you will be On-Call half the year 24/7. The job is very stressfull with Money being the main motivator for management, so look foward to constant feedback from management for scheduling of testing for oxygen and NIV. The best part of the job is just being able to get a 401k and getting vacation time once you are a full time employee.
Constant pressure to do more
