Pros: 8 hr work schedule
Cons: had to be on-call 24/7
typical work day: very busy, greet and assist patient directing them as needed. Register patient for surgery, lab, x-rays, and for admissions. I have learned new computer systems, to direct others on how to register appropriately, was transferred to ER Lead. The hardest part was to be on call 24 hrs. I was given a blackberry where the fellow clerk would call if they needed assistance, guidance, or were calling off. I had to find a replacement for them or cover if necessary. The most enjoyable part of the job was almost everything except being on-call. It was very difficult with 2-3 calls almost every night, trying to function with minimal sleep.
