Tough Job, Unrealistic Expectations
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Elk City, OK – November 3, 2015
I very much enjoyed working at GPRMC, however, the management was tough to work with. They were unrealistic with their expectations, and uncaring when employees or their family became ill. Working for a physician's office, I became ill and was advised to stay home, however, I was then let go the following week because I had missed time during my probationary period. The probationary period is the first 6 months of employment, and they require that you miss ZERO time during that time for ANY reason. Even if you are ill and hospitalized, your performance is reviewed and you are considered in violation. I have never worked for another company that is that rigid in its expectations. I could see being upset at an employee or being unwilling to work with them if they were just taking days off for no reason, or if there weren't documented reasons for their missing days, but when a person has physician-documented reasons for why they've missed a day, I don't believe that should be held against them. I loved working with my patients though, and wouldn't trade having had the opportunity to become friends with my co-workers in the time I was there. Just watch your back and don't get sick if you do plan to work for them.
Getting to deal with patients, fun coworkers.
Unrealistic and uncaring managers
