Don't get a job without already knowing how to do it
cancer registry (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – December 22, 2015
I was hired as a cancer registrar in training. The person who I thought was supposed to be training me told me right from the beginning that me being hired was a "nuisance" and that she "didn't have time to train me". I asked my manager several three times for proper training (I was taking online courses as well, to become certified) because the way the actual world works, you don't get hired and know how to do the job immediately- no matter what it is. Anyhow, in the end I was let go because I wasn't "understanding" the job, although I never did get any training more than a piece of paper with some dates and what I should know by then. I wish I had the documentation about when I asked for training, because I was told that I may have had a good unemployment case. Hopefully they never, ever hire someone without training again, because I honestly have anxiety when I think about working there, and how awful my co-worker was to me. Hopefully the two openings they now have are for 1) someone who is already a registrar and knows how to do everything the job requires without training and 2)the other opening is for the existing registrar who should not be able to work with other people.
The doctors are great, the clinical staff is wonderful, but the training in the cancer center is a joke.
fabulous doctors and nurses- wonderful to the patients
