Being a volunteer, it felt great working with the people in the hospital and helping out with anything I could do. I gained clerical skills and learned basic medical terminology. I enjoyed learning new things and meeting new people on a daily basis.
The good always outweighed the bad here. Dealt with many people of all walks of life (patients, coworkers, doctors, nurses, custodians). It was an opportunity to help people which was amazing, the hardest part was when nothing could be done.
Great company culture work but no life balance is almost non existent at the emergency room position its open 24. Management take years to promote individuals, not enough incentives. Competative pay but almost non existent raises
Pros: learning about everything in a hospital (clerical and medical)
Cons: very short breaks and possibly none if your overnight shift, office politics
A typical day at work consided of checking in, registering, and discharging patients in an ER setting. I learned so much about the inner workings of the financial side of the hospital system as well as health insurance. Management was like most places, good for the most part. I loved my co-workers and still keep in touch with many of them. The hardest – more... part of the job was attempting to go to school and work at the same time. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing you are helping save lifes in a small way and also getting to learn about different ailments and the treatments required for them. – less
