Awesome place as a whole, did not like my department.
Unit Clerk (Former Employee) – Montgomery, AL – June 18, 2016
I was a unit clerk/secretary for the Emergency Department.
I learned how to calmly handle distraught family members of patients, how to request beds for admitted patients, and some medical terminology.
The management and higher up people were very friendly and understanding. There were opportunities to transfer and move up.
I disliked the nurses I worked with. They were usually rude towards me when I asked questions, and I often observed them being rude to patients. I understand that some of the attitude comes from working in the Emergency Department because it is a high stress environment, so I never held it against them.
I enjoyed working there for the experience of working in a medical setting, which will help me in the future after I graduate. I wouldn't have left if it weren't for a family emergency.
Flexible schedule, friendly management, many benefits opportunities
Short lunch, not enough walking around (desk job)
