Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OH – February 18, 2014
Pros: working with the patients one on one
Cons: no breaks
A typical day at the hospital was arriving and getting report from the previous shift nurse. After receiving report I went over my care plans and came up with a care plan for each individual patient. Visiting and assessing patients came next along with passing meds and general needs. The hardest part of the job was being on my feet for a total of 12 – more... to 14 hours sometimes not getting a break or lunch. The Most enjoyable part of the job was watching the patients go from sick to healthy and realizing had a major role in that. – less

Medical Laboratory Technician (Current Employee), Louisville, KY – January 10, 2014
Pros: 12 hour shifts so only work 3 days a week.
Cons: 12 hour shifts can be very long, no chance for advancement.
I work as a generalist for 12 hour shifts. I have worked night and day shifts. My co-workers are great and I also work by myself for any weekend shift so I can work alone or as a team. We are a very busy ambulatory lab so the days go by quickly. We have very close interactions with the nurses as well as the doctors.

Pros: free lunches
I didnt like the nature of the job. The company itself was okay but for the most it was terrible. typical day involved me wiping tables, delivering food to customers. Co-workers were okay but I didnt like the management. Hardest part of the job was dealing with the residents
Only received $1.10 pay increase in 4 years of employment. Not one African American managers or winners of any awards. When you walk down the halls you will only see pictures of caucasian nurses. Management was wonderful on my unit. Most co-workers were professional and fair.
I work with excellent and extremely knowledgable people who are very passionate about their jobs and willing to share their knowledge freely.
