The boss that hired me ran a tight ship, but she was offered a great career opportunity and took it. Once she was gone, the ship started to sink really fast. Complacency, disrespect, lack of motivation, and pure monotony took over in the business area. dealing with that type of environment was the hardest part of the job.
I use to come to work and enjoy my day so much that I would that I would lose track of time. There were times when I would stay behind and just chat with my co worker who had another hour to work, and I would help her get her paperwork together, and I didn't mind a bit. Management was on their P's and Q's because the boss held no punches. I learned my way around the hospital's network and the program it ran off and how to navigate through it, and I also learned to assert myself politely.
I had my circle of people to help me forget about time and the days went by quickly.
