This is a great community hospital, but there are so many problems with management and processes. I was sad this job did not work out because I loved where I lived and didn't want to drive so far to work others places.
Best job i have ever had! medical knowledge gained was invaluable!
Emergency Department Registrar (Former Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – November 17, 2015
Obtained patients demographic info as well as insurance and id, the ability to be in the room as the same time as the doctors and nurses provided me with the incredible experience to learn about the medical profession at the same time as meeting patients and family, for better or for worse.
invaluable medical knowledge gained
sometimes having patients last words having to be spoken to you instead of family
Clinical Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – August 11, 2015
While working at Grand Strand, I extended my knowledge base of drug pharmacodynamics. I enjoyed most of my co-workers; however some were difficult to get along with. Management needed improving. The hardest part of the job was not having a set schedule every week. The most enjoyable part was all the chaos of day to day operations.
Nationally Certified Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – June 9, 2015
The job duties are great but not well enforced and you will have to make up for others lack of effort. It is VERY clicky, and the new person is nearly abused socially and with work. Management is fantastic with handling each situation as it rises, but is not present enough to prevent the issues in the first place.
No interaction with a customer base, mostly independent work.
Emergency Room Technician (Former Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – March 25, 2015
This is a GREAT E.R. if you like a fast pace and like to learn. I didn't like the high volume of travel nurses that just came and went. I did enjoy the regular f/t staff. This isn't the kind of place you want to work if you want ANY benefits whatsoever. I was NEVER offered any during my tenure there. I was RARELY thanked for my help but mostly it was from the travel nurses.
You'll learn the fast paced E.R. environment!
NO BENEFITS - LOUSY ATTITUDES BY SOME TRAVEL NURSES
Staff Nurse on PCU (Former Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – April 27, 2015
Day began at 7am, report, assess and monitor 6-8 patients. Staff was helpful and taught me how to assess and document correctly, how to call an MD, put in an IV line. Management listened to new staff and was very helpful.
Office worker (Former Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – June 25, 2012
The pay at GSRMC is below other hospitals in the area. As many times as you discuss this with management, they don't want to hear the truth....I've seen employees sleeping on their shift and everyone just laughs....Management turns their backs on everything-you try to bring constructive conversations to meetings and people laugh. I would not want to be a patient at GS as anyone can look up and see why you are there.
I've gotten a position at another hospital for more money and it appears that everyone is respectful of each other. I love going to work everyday and doing 110% and being recognized for it!!
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Myrtle Beach – November 29, 2012
Worked for this company for many years. Current management does not look out for the employees. People are terminated regardless of what the previous review states. I find it hard to believe that the positive comments were written by actual working employees of this hospital system; I would suspect management put the reviews in to make themselves look better.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – June 3, 2013
Clean work place and great group of Officers and Supervisers, But ever changing personnel was common. My experience as a Correction/Law Enforcement was utilized very efficient here and came in occasionally, Especially with the "Interpersonal Communication" with the patients that were depressed and that were on "Patient Watch".
Unit Secretary/Ward Clerk/LPN (Former Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – September 5, 2013
getting admissions of many critical patients at one time from trauma to cardiac arrests. How to prioritize care for patients. Co workers worked as a team holding a persons hand while they pass away because they have no family with them. saving someone's life
reimbersment for continuing education, meals being deducted from paycheck
CNA (Former Employee) – Myrtle beach – January 16, 2013
Horrible work environment, as a former cna was overworked. I had as many as 19 patients. Most of the nurses were lazy. They spent time socializing, browsing the internet etc. Supervisors are even worse because they took the nurses side whether they were right or wrong. The best decision I made was to leave. Worst job ever
Certified CNA (Current Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – March 30, 2014
A typical day at work for me is looking forward on seeing my patients again. Knowing that I make a difference in theirs lives as well is mine. The hardest part of my job is at the end of the day wondering if I'm forgetting anything or anyone. Sometimes our days can be over whelm, but knowing when you do leave at the end of the shift you gave and put in 120%.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – September 22, 2014
Proud to be a part of Grand Strand Medical Center; however, the management in the laboratory can be unfair at times and shifts can be short staffed often. Need more communication between management and the employees.
This job was amazing when I first started however, as the years went on things got more and more complicated and the management staff changed rules and basically had you choose between family and work. I enjoyed my job and my co-workers but I would not want to work for the company again.
