Good Training Ground for Nurses
Staff Nurse (Former Employee), Victorville, CAMay 23, 2014
Pros: good training
Cons: resources
Enhances skills and good learning experience for starting nurses
Lack of resources and staffing together with high volume and high acuity of patients will train any nurse to cope with anything.

Distribution tech/HIM tech 1 (Former Employee), Victorville, CAApril 1, 2014
Pros: benefits/compensation. employee parking, descent breaks, steady hours
Cons: no to understanding with issues outside work, very controlling with job titles, would have you do something that not in your job description
A day at work for this hospital mainly consisted of clocking in when you were expected to start as well as clocking out. Overtime was given but only when it was necessary. A typical day would be myself and a co-worker picking up medical charts from offices and the hospital in the mornings, then storing them away in the medical warehouses. Then I would – more... have to go to each warehouse and have to organize the boxes of medical charts of patients employees and past employees, and deceased patients and employees in numerical order and to also purge the older boxes to make room for newer boxes to be stored away. Toward the mid day i would need to go into another building and help other co-workers with their backup work they couldn't get to, and then once done i would have to occasionally go to offsite locations and and deliver charts and supplies to them and also take charts/supplies they no longer needed.At this job you were utilized to the fullest aspect, even when certain jobs you were doing weren't in your jobs description. At the end of the day there were times i needed to take work vehicles to employee parking for storage and being on call with a pager at hand was very frustration at times especially when you had not only your boss, but other workers in the hospital paging you for things they needed at a certain time or even immediately. – less

rn resident (Former Employee), victorville, caFebruary 19, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: hr is completely unorganized
I was hired into the residency program. After riding a 3 month long roller coaster of "yes you're hired" to "we aren't having a residency program" back to being hired with paperwork filled out and a start date. I got a phone call from the house supervisor verifying my start date, time, uniform, and meeting location and less than 48 hours later (when – more... I showed up to work) I found out that the residency was canceled the day before. Their only thought was "oops well we tried to call you yesterday." Luckily I was able to get my old job back which I had quit to start this one. – less

Traps new grads with their contract
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Victorville, CAJanuary 8, 2014
This hospital lacks professionalism and management skills. Unfortunately, the hospital focuses on admitting patients based on their insurance and then discharging patients too soon because we need beds for more people who shouldn't be admitted in the first place. Their RNs are underpaid and overworked and management does not offer assistance, but instead – more... complains that we do not get high enough scores on patient surveys. – less

Some what of a good place
Dietary Assistant (Former Employee), Victorville, CANovember 6, 2013
Pros: free lunches
Cons: the health care benifites, short breaks, not enough money
When I was working here it seemed to be nice and friendly. But I have noticed that they would hire you on at part time or per diem and work you as if you were fulltime. You can get by working here, but don't think you will get far. I have learned how to cook, how to do the tray line. the management seems to be ok, my co-workers were great. The most – more... hardest thing about working here is when your a dish washer at night you would get out late, the most thing I enjoyed about working here was on the weekends. – less

Co-workers are great, pay sucks
Staff RN ICU (Former Employee), Victorville, CANovember 1, 2013
Co-workers are awesome, everyone helps out. The owner is a cheapskate when it comes to pay. He has the $ to buy hospitals all over the country but will not make his pay scale comparable to surrounding hospitals.

interesting work environment
Public Safety Officer (Current Employee), Victorville CaliforniaOctober 11, 2013
Pros: easy work asignments
Cons: a lot of down time
Typical day at work I would do interior and exterior patrol. I would handle calls that required security to be present. Response to every code even if it is a medical emergency just in case family members got out of hand. My co-workers were great different personalities made the job interesting. Hardest part was when there was a lot of down time and – more... boredom will set in and time would by very slow. – less

Low pay, low appreciation, great staff though
Rt (Former Employee), VictorvilleDecember 25, 2012
This is a good place to start out fresh out of school but that's it. You will be under payed and over worked. Management is horrible, some of the stuff that goes on here is unbelievable. As an employee you are not valued, there's always someone that can fill your spot. High turnover. The staff is helpful and works pretty well as a team.

Receptionist Volunteer (Former Employee), Victorville, CADecember 4, 2012
Pros: scholarship
Volunteering at Desert Valley Hospital was a great experience for me. I was not getting paid but I did get a scholarship for $1600. This hospital helped me realize that nursing is the career I want. I learned that you do not have to get paid to enjoy what you are doing. Working with patients and guests was the best part of my day. I would say that i – more... did not find anything hard, everything was enjoyable. – less
