Good pay, poor supervisor communication, high turnover
dietary aide (Former Employee) – Albert Lea, MN – January 7, 2016
Mayo is a great company to work for, being compensated well, in wage. Working only 2 days a week, as a dietary aide, I did not qualify for any benefits, besides accrued time off pay. This built up quite fast. Not being compensated for benefits, other than this was okay with me, since this was a secondary job, and I didn't really need insurance etc. Also, what was nice was receiving shift differential after 3 pm. This amounted to about $1.15 ( I think) extra an hour.
The job itself was okay, after I was able to feel comfortable in doing the job, as late tray pass. Job duties included answering the patients calls when they placed their meal order. You check off requested items on meal request order form, double check that what is requested is appropriate for their diet, bring the slip to the cook, set up tray accordingly, then bring the tray to the patient. It would get hairy at times when the phone would ring non-stop. Many times you will be on the phone taking an order, and the phone continues to ring. This can be very distracting, and you have to stay focused. Throughout the shift everyone is expected to help the dishwasher load and put away dishes, and at the end of the shift, this position required tearing apart, and cleaning one certain area of the dishwasher.
Most of the coworkers were great to work with. There might have been 1 or 2 that were bossy, and kiss up to the supervisor, but other than that, staff was helpful and fun to work with.
What killed the job was the immediate supervisor. Big lack of communication and favoritism towards several staff members.more... Without even asking prior, employees would be written in the schedule on their days off. As most part time staff had other jobs, which the supervisor is well aware of, the conflict of interest is obvious! This is when I began to notice a shift in the supervisor's attitude towards the staff whose schedules had to be worked around. At times the supervisor wouldn't even say hello, or acknowledge you, but then is really friendly towards other staff.
Also, the supervisor tells you than there are many opportunities for advancement, which isn't exactly true. Due to a very high turnover, more times than not we worked with a skeleton crew. This made it impossible to learn other jobs, since we were stretched as it was.less
Good pay, friendly co-workers, shift differential after 3 pm
Scheduling, poor communication between supervisor and staff, parking and distance of walk into the building, especially in inclement weather, ugly uniforms

Security Manager (Current Employee) – Waycross, GA – December 19, 2015
Mayo Clinic Heath System is and has been one of the most professional organization i have ever had the pleasure to work with. I have found the Mayo's leadership of management by committee a refreshing way to do business. All of the leaders have have had an open door and are never to busy to stop and engage an issue. The team concept has allow me to transition form a government position to a civilian position with ease. I have lean that Healthcare Security is different than any other security position i have ever held. My co workers are professional and carry out their duties with a scene of urgency everyday. The hardest part of this position is security by nature is to keep property safe and people safe this is done by limiting access which in a hospital is a difficult thing as it is open 24 hours a day around the clock with people coming and going at all time of the day and night.
Ped/Adult Med Surg RN (Former Employee) – Waycross, GA – December 17, 2015
This was a great place to start my nursing career. I gained the confidence and ability experience to handle complete nursing care for a patient load of 3-6 per night. I gained experience in effectively charting patients complete care and progress. I gained knowledge and understanding of time management around patient care. My co-workers were nurses with 10-20+ yrs experience, so I was able to get expert nursing advise and technical know how.The hardest part of the job was coming to the realization that not all nurses are free of prejudices toward their patients. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with patients and improving on new clinical skills. Management was knowledgeable about policies and open to hearing concerns and questions.
Opportunity to Advance My Confidence as a Nurse and Improve My Clinical Skills and Documentation
I have a nice thoughts about working with Mayo. Nurse to Patient ratio is the best in the whole Northeast. High technology in every work area is in place.The presence of Medical Interns helps a lot in getting orders faster.
