Was a great place to work until they outsourced us:(
Medical Transcriptionist (Former Employee), Portland, MEJune 13, 2014
Pros: great co-workers, work and compensation.
Cons: can't think of any except job security
It was a great place to work, then they figured out ways to "save a buck" and outsourced all of the transcriptionists out to a big company with transcriptionists making less than half of their salary.

Great place to work for Pharmacy students
Inpatient Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Portland, MEApril 4, 2014
A typical day as a pharmacy technician includes running medications to patient specific locations as well as filling pyxis machines. Days include answering phone calls from nurses and fulfilling requests in a timely fashion, Management is friendly and treats employees with respect when employees do what ever is necessary to care for patients including – more... showing up on time and working efficiently throughout shift. Co-workers are very personable and do most of the training of new employees.They are always there to answer any questions and provide a helping hand when needed. The hardest part of the job is the physical aspect of the job. There is a lot of walking and back and forth from the pharmacy to the floors. The most enjoyable part of the job is being a part of a team. Everyone is very respectful of part each person takes in the care of the patient. – less

Great people to work for and with.
Nursing Unit Assistant (Former Employee), Portland, MEDecember 27, 2013
Pros: learning new things everyday.
Cons: over night hours are brutal.
Working in a hospital you dont know what to expect so a typical day would be to make sure eveything is ready to go and organized incase of an emergency. Management is good and the co-workers are good for the most part. Hardest part of the job would be working over night and trying to keep busy. If your coming from a nursing home or assisted living it – more... will be very different. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new things and seeing things you wouldnt normally see anywhere else. – less

Pros: being able to assist in the "health care" and "well fare" of the patients

My shift began at 11pm. Generally there would be two Transportation Aide on duty, one on the phones and the other transporting, patients from the O.R. recovery ward to the assigned
floor and room. Or to transport hospital equipment or supplies
to the assigned floor. The shift would begin with updating the
primary Code Cart in case of an emergency on – more... any of the floors.
On the weekends we would assist the Emergency Room if their
Transporters were under staffed. We would transport to the
Cat-Scan, or to the MRI department and then return the individual
to the Emergency Room. We would also perform our duties
in the highest professional manner around the patients, their families,
and other hospital staff. And the highest respect towards the
deceased that were delivered to the Morgue. – less
