Would NOT recommend to my worst enemy.
Pros: kind people work in the cafeteria
Cons: uncredible & inexperienced managment, favoritism, discrimination, low pay; childish "cliques" -even amongst management!
Working at CMH was like reliving high school. If you were not accepted by the "cool kids", you were given the heavier work assignments, the aides that did not work as hard, and the patients that were difficult to handle. Favoritism was rampant. Pay was low. For the great image that Children's Mercy portrays publicly, they surely do not uphold that image behind closed doors. They say that nurses "eat their young"; the NICU was the most notorious for this... to the point of running off good, experienced nurses who were "young" or new to the dept. NICU management (ALL THREE NICU MGRS) supported this behavior by turning their heads at this unprofessional behavior.
CMH does not follow their Vision Statement. It is run by discriminatory behavior from the Charge Nurse level, to Departmental Management, up through Human Resources and Upper Administration. Do NOT waste your time!!
