Health Information Specialist, Everett, WA - February 3, 2017
To be honest, I really enjoyed working there. I liked most of my coworkers and I think most of them liked me. Most were friendly and welcoming. This was my first, real career-level job. I liked what I did everyday and it felt good to work for a company that puts patients first. I felt important and like I was making a difference. I did not, however, think the workload expected of me was fair nor reasonable. To get things done effectively and in a timely manner, this job really requires two people. I very seldom took my breaks, except lunch. I did not waste time socializing. I worked as hard as I could, yet still I could not keep up. I made some mistakes, which I worked hard to correct and improve upon. I was not given much chance to prove myself. I was terminated after working there for 7 months. The "coaching" I received was basically my manager telling me what I did wrong. It was obvious she has never done this job, so she does not understand the effort and time it takes to perform all of the required tasks. I really thought I would be there for many years. I learned a lot though, and I am grateful to them for that.
