Production Cook (Current Employee) – Township of Liberty, OH – September 24, 2017
My typical day is usually crazy and different every day. I am in charge of making two soups and the World Cuisine menu every day. I have a little bit of freedom to change some of the ingredients for each menu as long as I stay with in the diet guidelines. I'm also in charge of our Simply to Go line, which is our packaged items for a grab and go.I have learned how to improve my time management skills. I assign things for people to do when they are not busy or have free time. I do all of the ordering of our products and deal with the sales reps. I also do the monthly inventory. The people are good to work with.
This company is also a good company to work for when it comes to working with kids that are sick with life threatening illness. Some times you have your good days and sometimes you have your bad days not knowing if the children is going to be there when you come back to work the next day.
Wonderful/supportive work place that wants the best for patients, families and staff

Cincinnati Children's Hospital is a great workplace that allows for a strong work/life balance. Senior leadership is supportive of day to day work. The company works hard to support each of the employees.

Patient Care Assistant & Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – May 28, 2017
I loved working, caring for, cuddling, playing with the children. They are why I picked this career. Treating the medically ill child with the same amount of love and attention as you would do a healthy child is very important in their life and development.
CCHMC promotes work life balance which is not true. The organization does not offer flexible scheduling and does not empower nurses to engage in honest conversations to assistant a unit to become efficient and a change agent. Management in certain departments are "hands off" and do not have any idea what is going on unit and out of touch with staffing needs. Many great RNs have left CCHMC for the lack of appreciation and not feeling "listened to."
Largest department in the world. Research and growth oriented. Opportunity for specialization. Difficult work life balance as FTE. Staff works together as a family. Very supportive co-workers. Entry level pay.
Cincinnati Children's was my work family for a couple of years from 2006-2008. Typical days included being productive in a collaborative team environment where management governed democratically and the culture was nimble, relaxed, and welcoming to all walks of life. The hardest part of the job was managing the high turn over with entry level positions and scheduling paid time off as we were critical personnel. The most enjoyable part of Children's was the culture and the people. The hardest part of the job was taking a non-profit salary that wasn't fully competitive. If I knew then what I know now though, I'd keep that lower salary and be grateful for the opportunity to work in such a culturally robust organization. I'd recommend working in Cincinnati Children's Hospital in a heartbeat.
Cincinnati Children's provides an outstanding environment for children facing complex medical issues. The facility is highly supportive of families and encourages parental involvement. Staff are also supported to a great extent and their concerns are addressed in a thorough and timely fashion.
Great benefits backage/discounts/healthcare/HSA
High turnover rate, pay not commensurate for experience, not much room for professional advancement unless a degree is earned, management could improve on resolving employee concerns

Clinic starts at 8am; along with the nurses we prepare clinic. Multidisciplinary team so there are a lot of bodies in one area. Help with time managements, getting providers in rooms in a timely manner. Appoints last up to 3 hours clinic in only in the morning and we see average 12 patients.
