Sounds great in theory, but not in practice
Med Tech (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – June 8, 2017
I was so excited when I came onboard with this organization. The orientation really gets you excited for what's to come. The particular department I work in runs many analyses and is paramount in patient care, even if in an indirect matter. We are constantly understaffed, but our volume dictates we do not need more employees, so it's hard to get people hired. If one person calls out sick, my department pretty much implodes. A person shouldn't have to work in a place where everything goes haywire when 1 person is out. Also, my manager allows a coworker of mine to do the schedule, knowing that this coworker and I don't get along. Needless to say, I've been stuck with some terrible staffing situations, one of which where I was the only person in my entire department, when we typically run 3-4. Needless to say, our patients were NOT getting the best care that day. The response I got from my manager - "Sorry, I didn't know...I didn't look at the schedule." This is almost more infuriating, but I feel trapped. I do not feel comfortable going to HR and causing any tension while I'm job hunting.
I'm sure some campuses are better than mine, but I would steer clear of this particular location.
Pretty much everything else
