Pros: fast pace, organized, new facility, great pay
Cons: short lunches, management, lack of help
The workers seem to be more divided into upper or lower class people. I found this odd since it was such a small, private hospital but I'm a quiet person anyway so it didn't bother me but I can say, "they definitely aren't warm to Southerns". I loved that the job was fast pace and organized well in keeping the patients information together and in an orderly fashion. I worked a 4 day,12hr shift, so my least favorite was not having another trained person to help with holding the babies, I would have to get someone from another department to hold. And no matter how much you instruct a person on how to do it and to let them know to have a good grip, when that child screams they forget everything. And lots of times, the key to a successful stick on a baby, comes down to the hold and I didn't have the help. The busy times of the day was before 8 a.m. and after 4 p.m., and I would be the only employee out of 3 working, I explained to management and they did nothing about it! Management was going through changes when I came on board, so it was in a trail and error stage. There was a lot of favoritism, I think mainly due to the new manager leaning on the ones she already knew vs. treating everyone (old and new) as equals.
