Chemotherapy Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Shreveport, LA – June 19, 2017
Working at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center has been a great learning experience. A typical day at work here would include being a patient advocate at all times. There is constant communication between the nurse and physicians as well as the other staff members. This helps to have complete satisfaction from the patients for an overall good experience. The managers at Feist-Weiller are very approachable and willing to work with all staff for an excellent outcome for all patients. It is a teaching and research based institution. The hardest part of this job would probably be seeing patients unsatisfied. The part I love the most is being able to help our patients go through chemotherapy comfortably and be satisfied with our institution's service.

IT User Services Analyst II (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – February 12, 2017
This is a place where you pretty much know what to expect, but that doesnt mean management isnt watching. The culture is relaxed for the most part. The most enjoyable part of the job is being apart of public sector service.

Overall phenomenal workplace, employees, faculty, staff members, fellows, students, etc... Everyone is always providing assistants to those in need and there is always opportunities for training and growth.

Office Assistant for Clinical Pharmacology (Former Employee) – Shreveport, LA – October 19, 2015
This was a rather simplistic job while attending school. It was grant based so I did a lot of proof reading and editing of grammar. Other duties included pulling journals for doctors and running errands around the hospital. I enjoyed it, it was not a huge workload in addition to college. The coworkers were all doctors so I learned a great deal of patience and self control.
Student Worker/Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Shreveport, LA – September 6, 2015
Working at LSU Health Center was an welcoming environment. The employees as well as managers was very supportive. You could also see the passion of the workers who have been there the longest. I learned a lot about business, how the working at a hospital works, and how to organize the department and how to do seminar for the medical students. The most enjoyable bout working their was you felt loved that the job you did was appreciated by the managers. the hardest part of this job was that I had to let it go due to me having to go back to school.
Cancer Researcher (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – June 26, 2015
Be ready to work! Sometimes you will be with your supervisor or mentor and the next, you are on your own. Don't worry if you are on your own. Your supervisor is always one phone call away if you need him or her. There is a great staff who will greet you whenever they see you. Everything is constantly clean and up to par. As for places to eat or go on your break, there is a Subway, smoothie shop, and other places to visit in walking distance. The cafeteria in the center is really good and the price is just right for what you're being served. Really no need for a vehicle since the building is located a few short blocks away from the streetcar (on Canal Street)! You will enjoy working here!

Really enjoyed my time employed here, along with all the friends accumulated over the 10 years employed and the room for advancement is the best I've ever witnessed at any employer I've worked for. Really good benefits.
Very efficient place to work; everything I needed was at my reach
Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – April 21, 2014
Pretty routine job which consists of coming in and checking/answering emails. There are only two others that I work directly with, the other co-workers are all at other locations. We phone in with updates for each others' facility at least twice a month. The job itself was not hard at all but rather more like an entry level position. The most enjoyable part of the job would be getting the paid time off along with most schools and universities.
Weekends and most holiday's off
No windows, flurescent lighting, no room for advancement

Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program (Former Employee) – Shreveport, LA – June 24, 2013
I was a student researcher in the neurology department for the Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program in Shreveport, La. As a student researcher and paid employee, I did research at the LSUHSC Health Sciences Center. Under the watchful eye of my mentor, I was required to conduct my research and create a research poster that was later presented at the end of the program. Some shadowing was done during the process. I watched patients participate in clinical trials, I interviewed some neurology patients, watched several neurology checkups.
I got to shadow doctors, tour simulation labs, and watch clinical trials
