A typical worked was very laid back. I've learned that having prior knowledge of EPIC can really help you. Management was very kind, respectable, and has an open door policy I honestly had the best co-workers, always will to help when needed. The hardest part about for me was having to leaving this position due to unforeseen medical issues during pregnancy I – more... enjoyed everything about this position – less
I started working on an inpatient floor for med/surg. I really enjoyed the staff, everyone was helpful. I did wound care, IV's, passed medications. I also helped the patient with their activities of daily living...bathing, feeding, shaving etc..
Manager (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, CO – February 15, 2014
Pros: flexible and understanding employer, busy days that made the shifts seem to "go fast", free treatments for my family and a learning experience.
Cons: occasional challenges to overcome resistent patients to change.
A typical work day in this unique position initially consisted of trying to assess what to prioritize for clinic needs due to the fact that the temporary position was to fill in for 5 prior clinic staff members during a clinic re-organization under new ownership. As I was able to learn the incredibly comprehensive software, I was able to add more tasks – more... in my position to integrate with the costly software to help make my job, as well as newly hired staff members' jobs more efficient. As a personal friend to the owning family, this was a delicate situation where my job consisted of transitioning patients to new ownership where my position was to help patients see a value in the clinic rather than going elsewhere while being empathetic to their needs. Additionally, the position included routine reports to the owners, inventory, patient treatment notations, training new staff members and interns, reports to Pima Medical Institute regarding interns and some marketing. – less

I was hired away from a place I could have retired from
Facilities Manager (Former Employee), Cleveland, OH – December 5, 2013
Pros: great people working for me
Cons: management that would lie to other managers
I was promised no lay off and even close to the time they did the lay off i went to management and asked because I was going to have to replace a car. They lies and said no no chance of a lay off. The lay off was bad but to end up with the 500 dollar payment on top of it was unforgivable. The truth would have been appreciated
