Gross Room Technician (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – June 6, 2016
I come into work at 830 am. I get things set up for the doctors so they can begin working at 930 am. I've learned patience and a lot about health care and things I see here at work that help me or any one in their every day life. My management team here is great and my co-workers are as well I get along with everybody. The hardest part of my job is seeing death of young people because I work in the field of pathology. The most enjoyable part of the job is, getting the results of a patient who doesn't have cancer and letting them know about it.
Hour lunch break, have my own freedom, seeing something new daily.
Taking the metro to work daily, so I have to be at the metro's mercy if something happens, but if i drive it is to much traffic so I would have to leave earlier.

I work in a busy department which is the operating room and it keep me on my feet and keep me occupied. I learn the different aspect of the operating room and I get the chance to see different cases. I'm not able to take apart in the cases but i get to watch what the surgeons operate. In my department we doesn't have permanent manager but the contract manager do her best to keep the department up and running. My co-worker are like family, sometimes we don't get alone (but this happen wherever i go) but if someone in trouble we all help out each other. The hardest part of my job is when,we ran out of supplies or someone call out of work because it make it harder for other co-workers. The most enjoyable part of my job is when everyone get alone and the work go smooth.

Patient Service Representative (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – February 22, 2016
My friend/co-worker advised me about working for this company. She told me stories about her experiences. I needed a new job because of my old one. After she assisted me into the company I learned pretty quickly about this company and its all negative... the dept I work in are way friendly its just the management who aren't educated all and it questions how they even got the position?... Beware!!
Hospital’s General Surgery Residency is Unorganized
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Dept of Surgery Georgia Ave NW, DC 20060 – January 5, 2016
I worked there for a few weeks on a temporary assignment and not only is the staff unorganized when it comes to records management but I was told to organize exams for the medical students and it was a waste of my time. After organizing 100+ exams, the students were taking the exams and before they finished, they started noticing how some of their questions were not consistent with their study materials. Basically, the medical administrative team had outdated exams mixed in with some current exams. It was crazy. In addition to that confusion, my temp agency told me that Howard University was ending the contracts for all of the temps at my agency. Soon after I learned this, a hiring manager claimed to know nothing about this and said to her knowledge, I would still be working there. However, it pays to stick with the information you get from your staffing agency because you get paid through the agency and I was submitting my timesheets through the agency's site. After the temp agency's contract date ends, THAT'S IT! No more work. So, it just didn't make any sense why HR wouldn't tell my supervisor any of this yet HR communicated clearly to my agency. Shouldn't hiring managers know what HR wants to do with their temp employees? Just saying, I would never go back there again.
No employee lobby area, you have to share disgusting microwaves downstairs with patients & general public.
