RN (Current Employee) – East Orange, NJ – June 5, 2014
typical day: everyone that comes in complains. if they come in on time. pharmacy never delivers medications. doctors and staff are mean. run around a lot because of disorganization and lack of support. understaffed. high nurse to patient ratio. no support. no replacements for call outs. it's known that all nurses leave. and when they do, you envy them. doctors don't call back. if they do, they yell at you or maybe tell you that you are stupid. most things are hush hush. alot of contradiction. no structure. the lab in non existent. you do your own bloodwork unless you want doctors yelling at you because the lab doesn't do their job. they do hire anyone because nobody in their right mind would want to work there. or if they get hired, they do not stay unless they are desperate and can keep quiet. everyone is miserable.
cheap cafeteria, some staff members are really nice, it's quite the learning experience
just about everything else you could possibly think of

Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – East Orange, NJ – November 1, 2016
A typical day at work began with me filing patient information into the hospitals system. I worked in the radiology department therefore I worked closely with mammogram patients and was even taught how to read a mammogram. The comradery amongst my co workers and I was amazing. Everyone was extremely friendly, helpful, and willing to take time in order to teach me any necessary skills. Even how to work a fax machine! I enjoyed watching the doctors as they were in action and going about their day- it gave me an idea of what life was like for doctors, as I aspire to become one someday. The only fault I found in the job was not being as involved in what went on around the office, but it was only because I did not have the necessary experience.

Fun place to work, with supportive management. Under new management with the usual red tape politics, but this is to be expected. The most enjoyable part of my job ia working with my colleagues and serving the community on the daily basis.
Low pay, manager power tripping, overwork of staff
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – East Orange, NJ – September 29, 2015
This facility is for nurses and others who cannot find employment any where else. Although there are some competent employees there is a high turnover rate due to management and overall bad working conditions. Consistently have issues with computer system, rude employees in most departments, and staff who generally seem to not care. Tuition reimbursement is shameful, no bonus for pay for performance, certification, etc. Advancement not an option unless you are liked, and only allowed to those who don't have the education or seniority required for the position. Here you find people "managing" others with higher credentials than themselves and "newbies" being given higher positions. Always short staffed of nurses because although there's no staffing ratio in NJ, the consensus among administration is that it's ok to give nurses 8, 9, and at times more patients. Run don't walk away from here, not worth the stress.
Ability to gain some experience
Almost non existent breaks, low pay, no advancement
The job kept us involved in difrent types of parades which was fun to do so we can be involved in the community.
