Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – November 20, 2013
Pros: free lunch on holidays, great benefits.
Cons: short breaks, low pay, staff are difficult to work with.
It's a very busy clinic. I learned how to float to many different units and worked with patients as young as newborns to senior citizens. Some co-workers were nice, respectful, and well-mannered, while others were the opposite. There was also preference from some managers to some staff and would cause pressure to the rest of us. The hardest part of – more... the job was not having anyone available to relieve me for lunch, I almost had to beg people to relieve me for lunch and they would be upset by it. Lunch was only 30 minutes long and took 10 minutes alone just to get to the lunch room. Most of all the staff could be super difficult to work with. Everyone scratched their own back. The most enjoyable part was working with people in the Little Village clinic. There I was able to work with great people, and was also able to counsel high school students about sexually transmitted diseases and the consequences of risky behavior. – less

We not only specify in patient care but we also pray and minister with our patients which is very important in my eyes.
