I could not believe my short lived experience with Hospice. Very poor management. They will find some ridiculous reason to let you go at any time. I was let go for something that had nothing to do with my performance, but rather the fact that I did not "fit" in with the culture of Hospice. There was no opportunity for an improvement plan or helpful discussion. Come to find out, they hired back the person who was previously in my position. It seemed sneaky. I was told by a supervisor during my first week that she "does not know why I was hired" and that I would "not succeed" at this job. It was the most disrespected I have every felt in a professional environment. They truly live by the Ohio "employment at will" law, and will drop you on a dime. This is a place that allows their new employees to be disrespected and treated as less than. I heard so much gossip among the various teams, much of it directed toward the inadequacies of new employees. Many staff are amazing and wonderful, while others seem to think that if you don't have prior hospice experience, you can not do the job. I preformed just fine, was passionate about the work. I was told that I was excelling as a new employee one week, and was let go the next. I would not recommend working here.
management, lack of respect, culture
