Pros: weekly pay, work is always available, leniency with requested time off
Cons: no benefits, lower wages for new employees
I have worked for this company x6 years and my sole complaint was their extremely expensive and abrupt cessation of benefits. I was given a 2 week notice while 6 months pregnant with a high risk pregnancy. This left me at a huge disadvantage. As a large company, I would have thought the would have gone about this another way. New employees have complained – more... that epic's starting wages are very low in comparison to other private agencies. On a positive note, my pay rate has always been exceptionally well and our staff is extremely courteous and professional. There is always work available, employees get paid on a weekly basis, and training classes are always very detailed and easily understandable. The charting system is one of the best I've used so far, although it is still paper. I have not experienced any difficulty with any patients I have worked with in these past 6 years.
I would like to see the benefits re-instated with better rates and perhaps computer charting available to our staff. – less
