Learn a lot but be prepared for disappointment.
MRI Technologist (Former Employee) – Rochester, MN – April 16, 2017
With the wide variety of patients and complicated disease processes, you will constantly be learning here. A great place to go to gain work experience!
Work can be very demanding, with various hours and work locations. In such a large department, you are constantly rotating through different areas and working with a changing group of people, with various capabilities and work ethics.
Management is too busy trying to make themselves look good to make any real attempt at improving the situation for regular employees. They frequently say what they think you want to hear, but their actions are totally different. Be forewarned that what you are told will occur may well be completely different from your actual experience. Lots of lip service to making things better for employees with many committees and "group decisions", but in the end management does whatever it wants.
Pay is okay, time off is easily earned but not so easily taken, and the parking situation is terrible. Be prepared to park far away from your work location and expect to walk a long way in all kinds of weather, with no accommodation for the extra time spent trying to make it to the workplace. You are on your own, and lateness is a serious offense.
Decent pay and benefits
Poor management who only pretend to care about staff, unpredictable work situations and environment.
