PATIENT INFORMATION COORDINATOR (Current Employee), Little Rock, AR – September 17, 2013
Pros: yearly bonus, great pay rate
Cons: short breaks, insurance is pricey
A typical day in the appointment center at ACH consists of scheduling appointments for the outpatient specialty clinics of ACH via phone calls from parents or PCP's, email, or clinic forms. The appointment center is a call center so it is very fast paced and busy. There is very little "down" time available.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Little Rock – June 24, 2014
Pros: steady pace, flexible break periods
Cons: cultural expectation
It is a steady-pace work environment, divided into four stations. Unit dose, Oral liquids, IV fluids and Stat. The unit dose area is consist of the tablets, pre-filled syringes and whole vials. The oral liquid is consisted of liquid medications that you fill with an oral syringe. IV medications are specially prepared in the cleaning room in a laminar – more... hood, using aseptic techniques. and the Stat area is the area that prepare the drug that are needed by the patient right away. sometimes they will send drips to the floor and the patient. I learned so much about the hospital setup, and the role of the pharmacy in a hospital setting. I especially love working in the cleaning room, preparing IV injections. The biggest issue with the job is management. Management is not organized enough and doesn't not respect the cultural expectations in a work environment to take matters on it certain issues. – less
ACH is a wonderful environment to end each day knowing what you've done helped make children's lives better.
Neurophysiology Technologist (Current Employee), Lowell Clinic – May 4, 2014
Pros: supportive environment
Cons: the pay could certainly be more competitive.
Given my duties, my day starts pretty early. I get the opportunity to go to work and be a part of something bigger and much more noble than myself. I've learned so much about human development, interpersonal relationships, and of course neurophysiology. I couldn't ask for a better group of co-workers, managers, and patients. The emotional aspect of – more... pediatrics can be overwhelming at times, but the support system among peers puts what we do into perspective. I most enjoy watching as my patients grow with us, become well and ready for the life before them. – less

Pros: a wonderful cafeteria with great food.
Cons: a mixture of personalities and attitudes
The job was very hectic at times, depending on the number of appointments for the day. I was part of a team that sometimes required motivation tips at some point during the day. The most enjoyable part of the job was most of the staff was extremely friendly and always willing to learn something from one another.

Cons: learning curve
This job was tedious and required knowledge (training provided) of system called Meditec. This program allows us to enter doctors orders which is then relayed to the appropriate department and or person to carry out those orders. Bottom line. Make sure the children have what they need when they need it.
Unit Secretary (Former Employee), Little Rock, Arkansas – March 16, 2014
Pros: great benefits, annual events, and fundraisers
Cons: need more interaction with hospital administrators in times of need
My job was the best job I've ever had. The work was great, I got to work around children and my boss was really down to earth and understanding. My coworkers and I became like family and there was no tighter knit group than my coworkers and I. The hardest part of my job was dealing with parents who mistreated their children or spouse. It was very hard – more... to see, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time here and hopefully I'll come back in another capacity. – less
Lead Barista, Java City (Current Employee), Little Rock, Ar – November 24, 2013
Pros: great benefits
Cons: short breaks, no free lunch, and the uniforms.
my typical work day starts at 8 am and ends at 4:30 pm. the busy peaks are from the time i get there until about 11. after my break i have to count down two registers, give other co workers a break, pull the stock needed for the next day and put away a truck order if needed
At this job i have learned that having patience is a must. Being friendly, – more... speaking clearly, and having a good appearance is also a must.
My coworkers are the best. we work well together as a team, because if we don't there is no way we can have a successful day.
The hardest part of the job would be the lack of not having enough employees.
The most enjoyable part of the job would be the customers that come to me and tell me that i am doing a great job. if they are happy then i am too. – less
Admissions Counselor (Former Employee), Emergency Department – October 11, 2013
Pros: great sense of pride and good benefits
Cons: politically driven
Working at the Arkansas Children's Hospital gave me a great sense of pride. The benefits are decent and everyone there shares in the idea that we are all there for the kids. My only gripe is that it is very difficult to get in and very difficult to move up. Some departments are all about you paying your dues before they'll allow you to move up. It can – more... be highly political. – less
