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.
Most things you've heard about the work environment is true.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Hanover, PA – June 29, 2012
I've learned that unless you become a part of the coworkers "clique" they will find a way to run you out. It is impossible to have a positive attitude because everybody is just so miserable and if you don't agree with their crankiness, they will find a way to make you look bad to management or make you feel miserable enough to quit. I compare my experience at Hanover Hospital as working with a pack of hyenas...If you can't assert your place in their pack, they will chew you up and spit you out.
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
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.
EKG (Former Employee) – Hanover, PA – April 30, 2012
CEO AND UPPER MANAGMENT COME AND GO. They make deals that hospital cannot fullfill and leave to another high paying job. They do not intermingle with lower employees or care to so just image what they think of the patients? Not a very stable place to work be carefull who you trust.
