Lab Tech II/Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Casa Grande, AZ – April 13, 2016
This job allowed me to explore a job field that I had never been exposed to in the past. The hours were difficult as they changed, but it definitely allowed me to learn about working directly with customers.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Casa Grande, AZ – March 31, 2015
The usual day at work at this hospital pharmacy included refilling the pyxis machines in all of the departments of the hospital. Providing the proper medications on an as needed basis for the patient in the intensive care unit. Maintaining stock levels of any and all medications within the pharmacy, checking temperature levels of refrigerated medications.
One of the greatest things learned at this type of job is the level of attention that is needed to perform the job optimally and make sure that there are no mistakes in the process. There is no room for error when one is dealing with a person's life. Management in the pharmacy was sub-par unfortunately, situations that I would bring up to the director of Pharmacy would go unheeded until it became a big problem. For the most part the co-workers were great and very helpful when I had questions about how to do something or I did not have the knowledge about a particular process. The most difficult aspect of the job was knowing exactly where everything was when it needed to be found in the pharmacy, the position of certain products needed to be changed from time to time to accommodate new amounts of medication or just new medication itself.
I would have to say the most enjoyable part of the job was when I would go out and do my twice daily rounds to deliver medication and refill the dispensing machines. I particularly liked it because I would be able to interact with different people i.e. nurses, doctors, patients and their family members.
Patient Companion (Former Employee) – Casa Grande, AZ – July 7, 2014
C.G.R.M.C. is a very caring and fast paced environment. Management and co-workers are very professional and friendly. Patients vary from the best and worst parts of the job. Although, there's no benefits included and the job is very intensive at times.

The collaboration with my fellow therapy team members was invaluable for the learning and encouragement I received.
opportunity for independent research, collaboration with team
Friendly and welcoming workplace with wonderful ties to the community.
Certified Nursing Assistant/Nurse Tech (Current Employee) – Casa Grande, Arizona – December 28, 2013
The hardest part of the job is helping those patients who have either given up on life or are just having an extra hard time with their specific health concern. They are depressed and its just heartbreaking to see their problems, but then they also respond to the smallest thing its also the most rewarding sometimes!

CLA (Current Employee) – casa Grande,az – October 26, 2013
I'm pretty sure I know who wrote the review about the lab.he's a jerk..anyway
I love working in the lab. Everyone is great to work with and everyone gets along great. They make work enjoyable. The nurses are great for the mmost part. Usually very nice to us. ER nurses are great to work with.
I do feel like we are not paid competitively at all, and with the shifts we work it's hard to find child care.
Student Volunteer (Former Employee) – Casa Grande, AZ – August 20, 2013
I was a student volunteer at CGRMC. I worked in OB/GYN and HR. Between filing paperwork and hearing the screams of newborns I was kept quite busy. I had a lot of fun volunteering here and would love to do it again.
Phlebotomy (Former Employee) – casa grande – May 12, 2013
Q.This place doesnt not care about its employees. Well the one that voice concern about anything. They have favorites! The supervisor sits around pretending to work but is on the phone with personal calls all day. She lets her favorite employees sit in the office with her. Even letting certain personal friends take very long breaks and use there personal phones. While the other employees work hard. We cant speak up about because then we get in trouble. The supervisor does not have any people skills, the director should see by now why the turn around is so big in the department. Over all this place cares only for its self. They are dirty and do not follow correct protocol when it comes to sanatizing or handwashing. Even the housekeepers do not follow protocol. The floors are disgusting the patient room vents are full of dust and lint. The Ceo should walk around checking those things. If you want the employees to talk about you while you are getting care then this is the place to go.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – casa grande,az – May 5, 2013
Honestly-I have never worked at a place where I felt so unappreciated by the management, we are called in over and over for a multitude of mandatory meetings where we get humiliated about our charting. They are the ones who picked Cerner-not us. Anyway-I work on a floor where more than half of the people I work with have been given a notice of concern. One employee was a good and caring nurse-he made 1 mistake and was immediately fired then was reported to the state board of nursing. I work with an un derstanding that I will have a nurses aide on the floor to help-but they make her stay home almost every shift without pay on call. I am full time but only work part time as I am put on call every single week.I like my co-workers. The director does not listen to us-she makes up the notices of concern before even talking to us about the problem.
They don't offer any matching with the 401 k,health insurance is good but extremely expensive for family
the nurses i work directly with
managent only cares about getting what they want-listening to the nurses is not important
former employee (Former Employee) – casa grande regional medical center – November 13, 2012
Terrible place to work.The revolving door of emplyees is a statement for how they treat them. Any warm body to fill a position. The "happy" customers in they'er flyers and calenders are all employees. If you question any inappropriate practice or buck the "good ol boys" network, they find a way to get rid of you. The hospital talks about moving into the modern era of medicine but won't change the old habits they have followed for years.
the hard working staff that provides service to the patients.
