Decent work environment with great co workers and fair management
Operating Room Technician (Former Employee) – Hanover, PA – November 13, 2016
A typical day would consist of caring for patients and working alongside others in a team effort. I learned to constantly adapt to changes and deal with difficult high stress circumstances. Management was fairly decent although higher ups would frequently implement changes that made our job more difficult. The most difficult aspect of the job was dealing with high intense situations that would suddenly happen with a patients life hanging in the balance. Good teamwork and familiarity with job duties helped overcome these obstacles. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know your coworkers as you would work with them closely every day. It was also very rewarding to help patients.
Decent pay for on call hours. Good coworkers. Clean work environment.
Few benefits. Too many changes. Unnecessary workload at times.
I was a fast learner so i did a fairly great job at picking up on tasks and being able to complete them but after an argument with another employee and handling it with the help of office personell i was still fired because i "walked" out on a shift after having permission from other employees to leave because that was the only way to get the dispute to sease for the day.
Staff Nurse & Charge Nurse, Clinical Nurse II (Current Employee) – Hanover, PA – October 4, 2016
I have loved working at Hanover Hospital. My co workers are great. It is a little top heavy in upper management. My current manager is not so great. Doesn't communicate ... says one thing does another... not professional at all. I worked on another floor and my manager was great.
Physically demanding job, good coworkers, management unconcerned with making the job appealable.
Housekeeping/Environmental Services (Former Employee) – Hanover, PA 17331 – February 11, 2016
Wouldn't be a bad job if not for the outside subcontractor running the department. This person in management position has no vested interest in the hospital or its employees. The only interest this person has is what makes them look good to the company they work for. i.e. keeping costs as low as possible by keeping staff numbers low, and continuing to add duties to already very busy shifts. Keeping inadequate and substandard equipment. Running 3 shifts with each shift doing the same jobs differently, creating tension between shifts, and not wanting to address problems or try to find solutions.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Hanover, PA – February 19, 2015
A typical included patrolling the compound for security purposes. Both inside and out. The hardest part of the job was the constant need for the Security Officers to restrain combative patients. The most enjoyable part was the comrade of your co-workers.
Don't go to upper management if you feel that you have been wronged and be careful who you trust!
Former Employee (Former Employee) – Hanover Hospital – April 11, 2013
I worked at Hanover Hospital in 2012 before I was terminated. The first department that I worked in was great but there was no advancement opportunity. I was promoted to another department that gave me full time work which at first I thought was great but then became it became the biggest mistake I had ever made. The department that I transferred to was very unprofessional (management wise, regular staff was great), The management staff in so many words acted like they were still in high school and broke rules all the time. To sum this up I feel that I was wrongfully terminated because I went over my boss and her bosses head with a problem that involved them (I tried to talk to them first and it got me nowhere) and the day after they found out that I went over there head I was terminated. It is sad cause a few individuals will put a bad taste in your mouth for the whole place. You know the saying a few bad apples will ruin the whole bunch. I am not saying that every department is bad because it's not but they should really do something about some of the management running that place. Be careful feeling like you can actually go to upper management with a problem about management because they will allow management to fire you afterwards. I wish anyone one who gets a job there the best of luck. I know that I worked my tail off and in the end it didn't matter cause it was my word against there's and of course they won. Now I have all that time wasted and no reference for another job. I am not writing this to discourage people from working there because some departments are great.more... If you do get a job there I hope that your experience is better then mine was. Just be careful who you trust.less
good staff for the most part
some departments have bad management, can't trust some upper managment to help you
STAFF (Former Employee) – HANOVER EXPRESS CARE – January 8, 2013
Hanover medical center is so bad and the executive level at the hospital are just as bad. The management and the staff at hanover medical center are so unprofessional. First impressions when I walked in were horible. It makes me feel uneasy to get care from anyone there because not one is a rn, they are all lpn's or lower. The turnover rate is tremendous at best.
Productive and fun place to work with wonderful employees.
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Hanover, PA – September 20, 2012
Even though each day was hectic saving lives, I left each day feeling great by knowing what I accomplished during my shift, I did it with wonderful teamwork. From administration down to co-workers, each individual went out of their way to work like a family. I learned so much in the five years at this hospital gave me a chance to inhance my quick critical thinking, time managment and people skills, along with building my ability to teach.
LPN (Former Employee) – Hanover, PA – August 28, 2012
In the last 10 years I worked in Occupational Health where they could accommodate my restrictions. I answered phones, scheduled appointments and dealt with companies. I copied charts. I could step into anyone's job in the office if there was a need. The hardest part was saying good-bye after 31 years at the hospital.
excellent health insurance
sometimes no breaks and sometimes no lunch breaks or eating lunch at my desk
