Cons: cancelled or floated often
Each department has their own pace and way of doing things, so you have to change your frame of mind completely depending on which unit you are in. As far as advancement, unless you have the right education, there is none, however, your manager will work with you should you want to go back to school. There is also opportunity for tuition reimbursement, as long as it's healthcare related. There is nothing hard about this job, it's just frustrating sometimes. Being the only person in that position in the unit, you think of it as your sole responsibility because there is no one to relieve you at the end of the shift. All of the other units have someone coming in for the next shift, so they're not as rushed to finish everything in 8 hours. Management could be better. There are multiple units being managed by one person, and they're spread too thin, and it shows. I like working here because of the people and it's "safe." Everyone is easy to work with- really nice, unique personalities, and the atmosphere is more relaxed [on Pediatrics]. Chilton also recognizes, rewards, and gives back in many ways. For example, there were many employees affected by the super storms in the past couple years, and the hospital was very generous to those in need.
