Medical Assistant/ Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Lenoir, NC – January 31, 2016
I would go in for a 12 hr shift and perform labs on the floor or in the ER. This was my first job as a phlebotomist, I learned a great deal here. The staff was usually always helpful. After four years I transferred to the outside practices and became a medical assistant for the practices and the urgent cares.
Educational classes offered. Scheduling is decent some jobs 12 hour days some 8 hours. Tends to work well with schooling. Insurance and benefits offered. Several years pay raises were not given. Work load is heavy, short staffed a lot. Good luck if you have to file worker comp claim.
In outside practices owned & operated by Caldwell Memorial are very fast paced environments such as any thriving physicians office. Unfortunately some are under staffed & over worked. The work loads for most are unrealistic & duties extend well past what you were initially informed you would be doing. This causes frustrated employees that went into a job with a different idea of what they would be doing as told by the hiring manager of the practice leading to poor moral.Workers that have poor interaction with other employees & cause conflict with other employees are allowed to do so & are kept on as "team players" as long as they are doing a excellent job.
Drug rep lunches, Small raise each year, Participating in community activities, PTO payouts, Insurance
No breaks, Sometimes shorten or no lunches, Managers play favorites & do not treat employees equally, Long hours, Extra work, Micro managed
