time management, helpful co-workers, multiple tasks, focus, and patience. Tons of information in many different systems that need to be interpreted and modified for all company plants across the US and Canada.
Staff Nurse - Coronary Care Unit (Current Employee), Florence, SC – July 26, 2015
Pros: Starbucks and bank obsite
Cons: unpredictable schedule
McLeod is a great place to work but I am concerned with the burnout of nurses. They need to hire more staff. I do think they have a comprehensive training program but the nurse educators and people who train at skills fairs may need more training on effective ways to teach and speak in public.
Personal Catering Associate/Diet Clerk (Current Employee), Florence, SC – May 10, 2015
its a great company to work for I like working in the department that I work in and I get along good with my coworkers. I work in the diet office answering a high volume of phone calls and entering data – more... in the computer. hardest part of my job is when a patient is on a liquid diet and they haven't had any thing to eat on in a day because of procedure that they had to have done. and they want to eat a regular meal. – less
Medical Assistant Externship (Former Employee), Florence, SC – May 2, 2015
It was a fast paced environment with a lot of patients in and out. The physicians did a lot of hands on work. My co-workers helped me get the hang of things I experienced a bone marrow procedure. Hardest – more... part of the job was keeping patients calm until the doctor visited their room. The most enjoyable part of the job was while drawing patients blood in the lab, they would tell me how great I was at it considering the fact that I was only a inter and have not received my phlebotomy certificate yet. As of September-2015 I am a certificate Phlebotomy and Medical Assistant. – less
the job security is secure and on a typical day you are running down the hallways to get to your patients and it gets depressing at times. you hate to see people die and the hardest part is remembering everything about over 400 hundred patients
Tech (Former Employee), Florence, SC – March 20, 2015
Pros: decent pay
Cons: work more with less help
This was a great place to work when I first started. They were caring and loyal to their people once. Now it is all about productivity. From the top down it is all about money. Money does not make happy – more... employees. It helps but its not everything. When you stop caring about your people, they notice and become very unhappy and drone like even. I understand keeping the patients satisfaction scores up however, your employee satisfaction scores are way down. – less
McLeod Regional is an very busy, productive & clean environment. The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to come do my job every night knowing exactly what I have to do when I come in. My co workers are nice & friendly so I never have issues with any. It really isn't any hard parts of my job to be honest.
Computer Analyst (Former Employee), Florence, SC – February 16, 2015
McLeod is a who you know place to work. They favor all the big bosses with the bonuses. the employees get nothing. Employees are appreciate sometimes. Your typical day is very busy and have some great people working for the organization.
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee), Florence, SC – January 17, 2015
great staff in PICU and NICU worked well together as a team including the doctors. everyone was helpful and sincere instead of helping and then talking about you behind your back. I enjoyed my time there
