RN (Current Employee) – Northampton, MA – July 28, 2016
Job culture however is not cohesive and management allows for a atmosphere full of gossip and backstabbing. I prefer to work in an atmosphere where people work together as a team and collaborate instead of having to watch your back. Mostly the Medical-Surgical floor is responsible for such nonsense.
However, if you can deal with that, the pay is great, insurance is OK (must use CVS for prescriptions to not get ripped off), Earned Time Off is great.
Take note, there is a very long time-span between applying for and actually starting the job. HR is extremely slow processing applications, actually getting you an interview after weeks, telling you that you were accepted after weeks, and having a nurse manager start you on the floor in weeks to come. Took about 2 months total to actually start the job from application to start date.
Union Representation; ETO; Benefits; Competitive Pay; Nurses Get Overtime After 8 Hrs.
No 12 hour shifts, Benefits highly expensive if part-time, Nurses on medical floor vicious to one another
