Have you heard the phrase, "People don't quit jobs, they quit bosses."?
Clerical (Current Employee) – Petoskey, Michigan – August 7, 2016
My job is mostly clerical so I handle charts and paper work, spend a lot of time on various computer programs. I have mostly wonderful co-workers, although the majority of us are currently looking for new jobs, including myself. We all love what we do, but not some things we have to deal with that have little to do with our actual daily tasks. There are several issues with management, yet when several us get together to address the issue we are simply told to stop complaining and do our jobs. That we come here to work, not have fun. No one is expecting each day to be a big party, but people should not dread coming to work or seeing their bosses either.
The hardest part of our job? Dealing with management. Especially those who aren't qualified to be managers, yet still have the position.They need to start looking at what bigger and better hospitals are doing -and copy them. There is a high turnover rate here for a reason.
The most enjoyable part of our job would be the satisfaction of helping patients. We care deeply about them and it is frustrating to be the ones who look them in the eye and develop relationships with them, but then have all the politics of lower and upper management that sometimes interferes with giving our best are.
the nurses here are amazing, colleagues, one of the few places in the area to get a decent benefits package
low pay, raises are very low, no bonuses or incentives for doing well, managers poorly qualified or simply cannot handle their jobs, poor training, disorganized, a entire new board would be nice
