Located on the East side of Buffalo NY everyday is different as far as responses. I have learned alot from this job as far as dealing with different cultures, and different situations that arise on a daily basis. I was given many different Investigations to handle from superiors with success on all of them.

Certified Medical Office Assistant (Former Employee), Buffalo, NYNovember 2, 2012
Pros: paid lunches
Cons: constant movement
A typical day at work started between 9 and 10 am and ended between 5 and 6 pm. I learned how to verify patient demographics, insurance eligibility, I utilized an EMR system for patient records and results. Processed insurance preauthorizations for medicine and procedures. The management was the best, if there was criticism, it was constructive and – more... not accusatory. My manager's door was always open. The hardest part of the job was the over 100 phone calls we would receive in a day. The most enjoyable part was dealing with the Patient's and building a repoire with them. I have met some of the kindest people while working at ECMC. I loved this job and was very sad to lose it. – less

Dietary Distributor (Former Employee), Buffalo, NYOctober 1, 2012
Pros: free lunch and close to home
Cons: short hours and low pay
The average work day consisted of preparing trays for patients. Loading the carts for each floor with proper food according to each diet. Delivering carts to each floor and occasionally to each room. I learned the importance of details. Being that each patient may have a specific diet you have to pay very close attention to what they can and cannot – more... receive. The co-workers were pretty decent. Most of them coming from the same areas I grew up in. Management was very nice. A group of older women who showed a lot of love and understanding of ones abilities and personal issues. The hardest part of the job was working short hours for very little pay. I enjoy the management the most. They always was welcoming and didn't let the job effect their attitudes towards employees. – less

Pros: great people, great staff, adjustable schedule, close proximity
Cons: part-time unable to advance to full time in this position due to union rules.
I work on the IV/PICC/phlebotomy team and would like a similar job in Missoula, MT. My husband and I bought a home in Bonner/Potomac and would like to relocate there as soon as possible. I work 3-11 shift alone and cover a 600 bed level 1 trauma center in Western NY via beeper. I draw labs, start IVs, and place PICC lines 8 hours a day x 3-4 days/week. – more...

Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Buffalo, NYSeptember 12, 2012
Pros: team work, 12 hr shifts, huge amounts of vacation and paid time off, great benefits and compenation, bargaining unit
Cons: staff safety, cleanliness, patient acuity, difficult physicians
ECMC is a great place to work in that the compensation and benefits are top notch. Many coworkers have a team approach to completing tasks and lateral violence is minimal where I work. However there is significant turn over and decrease in employee satisfaction especially in Behavioral Health. Safety is a huge issue and staff do not feel full measures – more... are being taken to prevent patient on staff violence. Patients are coming n increasingly more dangerous and decompensated. They are under medicated and the progressive techniques staff are supposed to use arent especially effective. It is difficult to get upper management to really address this. – less

Pros: meeting &working with the wonderful alcoholism counselors
This was a position at Norther Erie Clinical Services which was an alcoholism out-patient clinic of ECMC. I learned a lot about life from this position and treasure it till this day. I saw there was hope for all people with drug and alcohol addiction.
