Stressful work environment with a high turnover rate
Surgery (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WINovember 14, 2014
Columbia St. Mary's is in a transition period (ie. computer systems, management turnover). Not sure if they have the right leadership for these transitions. Employees often feel that they are working with a bulls eye on their backs. Many long term employees have been relieved of their jobs recently, and their replacements have no where near the experience. The job environment was extremely stressful.

Representative Customer Service OB/GYN Clinic (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WIJune 2, 2014
Pros: showing up everday
Cons: no breaks to busy -
short staff - working front desk by yourself at times when you have patients with appointments and walk ins, trying to keep everyone calm while being professional and patient, then your have phones ringing constantly. Very tough at times you want to throw the towel in at times, but I have to remember that patient care in my number one concern, this could be my family out there needed services.
Once I think like that it makes my job worth giving my best.

horrible work environment
FRONT DESK RECEPTIONIST (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WIOctober 18, 2013
Cons: everything
great building horrible place to work, management confused everyone walking on egg shells not to get fired or laid off. I was the first point of contact, The co-workers were the hardest part of the job everyone afraid they would lose their job would do ANYTHING to keep it including lying on one another. Management just took that a face value, I worked for this company for five years, this was a horrible experience. Be very careful while working here company may not be around to long subbing out most positions big money problems

PCT (Former Employee), Mequon, WIOctober 9, 2013
Pros: excellent health benefits and pay.
Cons: sometime the work load would not allow for breaks.
I worked nights at the hospital, so a typical shift involved taking vitals and entering them into EHR. Every care given to patients was also entered into the computer. I enjoyed the nurses that I worked with. Any questions I had, they were prompt with answers and they always asked if I wanted to assist them with basic procedures. I think that is what I liked most about working at the hospital; that I was able to be apart of so much that it really kept me excited about my job.

Hospital Volunteer (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WIJuly 18, 2013
Pros: provide care to others and experience patient care
Cons: no income
I spent over 2 years volunteering part time in the emergency department and Columbia St. Mary's Hospital. I gained a entirely new outlook on patient care. My input was small but I was often reminded how beneficial my position was to work alongside the head nurse and oversee the department. The emergency department was unpredictable and everyone was on their toes, but the atmosphere was still light and full of optimism which was necessary for the health of the individuals. Putting my head in the game was worth the experience even if I did not receive benefits or compensation. During my time there I made plans to carry myself beyond just trying to help others in order to find a career that benefits my college degree, my future, and the health of everyone surrounding me.

Food Service Assistant (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WIJune 1, 2013
Didn't really learn anything. Management changed every 2 years. Each different management team became worse. Loved most of my co-workers. Biting your tongue to management. Walking on egg shells not to upest management.
