Medical Transcriptionist (Former Employee) – Sandusky, OH – December 18, 2015
Manpower personnel are very helpful and quick to place you in a job. The good point of temporary work is you are able to turn down a position, and you get all sorts of experience in your desired field.
Team Member (Current Employee) – Sandusky, OH – November 18, 2015
The employees are the best part about Firelands. They are caring, compassionate, and become your "second family." The benefits are excellent and they offer competitive wages. Overall, the management team is supportive. As the organization becomes larger and busier, hours can become long; but this is most likely only temporary.
Good benefits, supportive management, annual family picnic
Sometimes not enough time to get job duties complete
Wonderful to have the opportunity to work at this hospital
Medical Transcriptionist (Former Employee) – Sandusky, OH – October 14, 2015
I was a medical transcriber. I enjoyed typing the dr.'s reports. I worked with wonderful people. The starting pay was outstanding. I learned that I should have stayed with the company until better hours came available.
Volunteer for Speech Language Pathology Dept (Current Employee) – Sandusky, OH – August 24, 2015
When volunteering at Firelands Regional Medical Center Speech Pathology Department, I have gained many useful tools I can use in my future. I worked one on one with patients helping them fulfill their short term goals to become closer to reaching their long term goals. I also got to witness the other side of the job that deals with endless amounts of paperwork and insurance companies. Each day was a new learning experience that has only enhanced my passion for helping others.
I have an awesome team that I work with. We are able to bounce ideas and concerns off each other without judgement. I have learned about how the Voc. Rehab programs work. Hardest part is the position and program is brand new so its been a learning experience. What I enjoy most is being able to be of service to those on their on personal recovery journey.
started out not knowing anything about the sterile process, everyone was very helpful and encouraging, I learned fast and had to keep learning as the medical equipment we dealt with is changing rapidly. The hardest part of this job is knowing peoples lives can change if you make mistakes in the sterilization process, so you have to meticulous with your work. Since I have always believed that you should do the best job you can do no matter what job it is this is a job I took pride in doing.
the opportunity to learn new things, made alot of friends
the department was small at the time i worked there and i was not able to work the shifts i needed

Was a great job with lots of benefits & very hectic. The only thing I can say negatively is there were to many bosses trying to operate the office & they didn't always agree. Which in turn created havoc @ times. Most of my reponsibilites were receiving a patient referrals & after verifications, staffing it with appropriate disciplines. I loved the interaction with various people outside of our office a had a very good repoire with them. I left due to some health issues and now after surgery have recovered and am ready to get back into the working world. Thanks!
respected hospital & met goals & broke records for intake.
too much friction between employees & managers. very unprofessional @ times.
Good Place To Work. Benefits are excellent. Pay is slightly below average norms.
Allied Health Employee. (Former Employee) – Main Campus, Sandusky, Ohio. – March 4, 2012
Good place to work for. They are the largest employer in an area where economic repression exists especially in the manufacturing sector. The surronding area is well known for jobs that exist in the tourist trade. Crime is relatively low as compared to average norms. Living outside of Sandusky proper contributes further to this fact.
good benefits, strong presence in the local community.
