In many cases healthcare is taxing work and those that accept its challenges are largely unrewarded. A 12$ hourly pay is rather insignificant compared to the work load and one could in theory earn more waiting tables. I could give that review, but information can be found on any job sight or blog complaining about the nature of the profession. The various departments would be put to capacity on a regular occasion therefore putting a large burden on the pharmacy. I rarely had moments to breath. Without a certification in sterile compounding, I was hired purely to stock floors with their respective medications. This helped to foster an intimate relationship between bagged ice and my sore calves. But that is not to detract from the positives. My coworkers were easily the best part of the job. They almost always had a positive attitude and were always watching out for one another. The pharmacists and technicians would check to see if workloads were manageable and spirits were high. I could have always used more pay, but I would not have given up my staff.
All staff needs more appreciation and different ways of recognition from lmc

Assistant Director of ICU (Current Employee) – Laredo, TX – July 31, 2015
Learned about managing an ICU department from hiring of nurses to when an equipment breaks down and needs replacement. Oversaw about 40 employees. Collaborate with physicians, case managers, and other departments regarding patient's current treatment plans and discharge. Finance, budgeting, organization, training, education; all the dynamics required to run an ICU department.
UPS (Former Employee) – Laredo, TX – April 22, 2015
I was only a stock-boy for one department. Didn't roam the hospital, or climb numerous amounts of stories throughout my day. All I did was make sure patients had clean linens in their cabinets and enough bandages and such available for emergencies.
