Horrible. Not sure why full time employees at cannot get their hours. Hours given to travel nurses or techs who don’t stay the entire shift(s),creating more work for those in the clinic. Meanwhile management too busy taking numerous “lunch breaks” or cupcake breaks to care.The staff as well as those traveling to work at the clinic do not understand the need for two charge nurses when clearly if you can take all these “lunch breaks” you don’t need two charge nurses.

Unprofessional, hateful, those that always point out the mistakes of others thinking it makes themselves look good and management who likes the tattling and does nothing to arrest it, no team playing, you either tread water or drown. Dialysis eats their young AND their good workers do not stay because they are always picking up the slack.

Typically, 5:30 am- 9 or 10pm.......(14+ hrs/day), and sometimes you are working 2 jobs if a tech calls in sick, you are working 14+ hours doing both jobs. Managers help very little.

Where do I start? Longevity with the company with phenomenal work ethic but not being considered for other positions because you are 'too valuable as a work horse in the position you hold." Upper management just looking out for themselves, sitting behind their computers, wasting time themselves but are free to do so because their work is never monitored, making money, very selfish but slave-drive the direct patient care staff. Upper Management that are also not 'clinical' by any means leads to constant turnover due to lack of support of the people they are suppose to be responsible to train as they have no experience leading to added turn-over which in turn always effects patient care. Shameful! Promotions based on 'good 'ole boy club', not experience, work ethic or dependability/loyalty. A Human Resource Dept way out East that is not involved and does not care, they take the management word as God. Human Resource Dept that does nothing in regards to constant, high turnover rate......they do not care! For profit company, management gets bonuses and extremely high rate of pay, company lacks integrity.

Yes. It was time and a half once you worked over 40 hours in a week which might be common in some clinics. Also you got a dollar or so extra for working after 5 p.m. and on weekends. Clinic was closed Sundays and Saturday shifts everyone had to work but they rotated Saturday shifts so you didn't work every Saturday.

No, there is NOT a degree needed and they aren't going to take that into consideration either unless it's for Nursing.

Warm body and a pulse, they are desperate for nurses. The reviews that state they use you as a workhorse , grind you down and employees leave burned out, turn over is high.
