Horrible work environment
Security (Former Employee), Jamaica, NYMay 27, 2014
Pros: compensation isn't the worst
Cons: the staff are not friendly people which makes it hard to approach anyone while being a new employee.
I would tell anyone thinking of working here to ONLY go if one is truly desperate for work. Most of the staff are mean, rude and nasty towards both patients and other staff. The one positive thing I will say is there is the compensation isn't the worst but it could be better.

Challenging work environment with many systematic deficiencies
Radiology Technologist (Current Employee), Queens, NYMarch 22, 2014
Pros: great location
Cons: inadequate work environment due to systematic flaws
My typical day at work begins with ensuring the integrity of our equipment to effectively carry out my daily duties. Then, as the day progresses, I produce diagnostic images on patients of all ages. At any time, we can get a trauma call, which intensifies the atmosphere and makes carrying out your daily function even more challenging. However, the best – more... part of my work experience comes from conversing with my co-workers and delivering adequate patient care to clients in need. The management at our facility displays an incompetent attitude towards the myriad of deficiencies within our department. They offer termination as their prime solution for their shortcomings. In any case, the helping of others is my primary concern and objective. – less

Great place to work
Ambulatory Care Representative (Former Employee), New York, NYMarch 7, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Very busy clinic, good place to work overall. A typical day at work consists of scheduling patients about 120-140 daily, answering phones,making lab appointments, verifying insurance,e.t.c..
Every day was a challenge for me to do better, I learned a lot of patience with having to deal with patients who were in pain and not themselves at the moment. – more... I've learned there is always room for improvement as long as your open to learning new things.
Management was excellent, very helpful as well as my co-workers (team work was always in effect). I honestly would not say there was a hard part because I consider everything as a learning experience. The most enjoyable part of my job was helping these patients/visitors and to make sure they were satisfied and happy with their overall experience. – less

Great Stepping Stone
Clerical (Current Employee), 8900 Van Wyck ExpresswayJanuary 10, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: no advancement
Everyone I worked with told me that they never planned on staying at Jamaica but the convenience kept them there, some for as long as 30 years. I learned a great deal from working there but there was very little opportunity for advancement and wage increases once every 3 years. They even suspended their tuition reimbursement programs.
