Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Longmont, CO – February 28, 2013
I was hired from Arkansas and was in my job position for only 6 months when the witch hunt began. My supervisor was doing my evaluation when she discovered I was making more money than her and she chose to tell everyone in the Pharmacy what I was making. I worked with a night pharmacist that made up stories about my work ethic. I have been a tech for – more... 32+ years and have never been through anything like this. Three previous technicians have been fired before myself and two pharmacists. I was so happy to be in this wonderful state and so proud to work for a place that I was so proud to be there. Then to be done this way, it has been more than I can stand. I sold everything to move here and now I am homeless and on food stamps. More to the whole story but I hope people get the picture. – less
hospital itself is fine, laboratory is not very good
Laboratory technician (Former Employee), longmont, colorado – February 13, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: laboratory management very bad
I had worked as a lab tech in 2 previous jobs prior to moving to Colorado. The person in charge of the job was a nightmare. She had her personnal friends, who were treated very differently than the other employees. These lab techs who were the manager's friends, were elevated to the position of gods. They were rude to patients and made managerial decisions – more... that no lab tech should make.
I have since transferred to the Longmont Clinic and love my job. I would avoid working in the lab at LUH unless the management and interpersonnal relationships between management and employees changes. – less
RN (Current Employee), Longmont, CO – January 30, 2013
Pros: flexible scheduling, supportive administration, walk the walk
Cons: less pay than denver hospitals
This community hospital values each of their employees as long as they are focused on the patient as the center of care. They do have high standards but also give employees the support and guidance they need to accomplish that task.The educational opportunities and the nursing governance process are fantastic. Sure, now & then you may find a manager – more... who isn't the greatest, but you can find that about anywhere. As a whole, they are wonderful. You really couldn't find a better team of people to work with. It's like a second family. – less
Supervisor in the lab is not liked by most of the technologists and laboratory assistants
Laboratory Assistant II (Former Employee), Longmont, CO – November 30, 2012
Pros: nice hospital overall
Cons: i do not recommend the laboratory unless the management has changed
I found working for this laboratory to be the most punitive experience I have ever had. I had worked for 3 other hospital laboratories for a total of 10 years prior to being an employee at Longmont United. In all those years I only recall being reprimanded twice. At this hospital laboratory I was called into my supervisors office at least 5 or more – more... times in the 2+ years I worked there. Sometimes it was for a legitimate reason, but others were so petty! – less
I worked there and found out I wanted to be a nurse.
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Longmont, CO – August 3, 2012
Pros: clean, small, good benefits
Cons: very gossipy, no administrative support for advancement
While I understand the hospital has changed dramatically since I have worked there this was a very nice place to first figure out my career and then continue with pursuing that career. At that time there was little administrative help in directing me correctly along the path I needed to take. I was curious why the hospital did not take a bigger interest – more... in helping employees who were interested in pursuing a nursing career but rather chose to hire from outside the facility. – less
