If you want to be worked to death and not be appreciated this is the place for you
RN (Former Employee), Mobile, AL – October 13, 2013
Pros: high salary initially. but only 2 tiny raises in 5 years :(
Cons: everything you can fathom
I took exactly zero vacations in 5 years at this "hospital". The management could care less how you feel, your recommendations for improvement in the work place, or the patients. They are interested in making money. Period. They will do anything make the most money they can. 7 and sometimes 8 Pts to one RN on a cardiac unit is not an acceptable ratio. – more... As soon as u try to take a vacation, question management, or look for another position elsewhere after you figure out they are a less than ideal facility, they will find a reason to fire you. Oh yeah, they're being sued by the federal government for 550+ million dollars in alleged Medicare fraud. Have fun with this one! – less
Staff RN (Former Employee), Mobile, AL – October 1, 2013
Cons: poor management, overload of work
I made a little bit more poor hour while working at MIMC than I did at my previous job at a teaching hospital. The extra pay was not worth it. Nursing staff is treated horrible by MDs (cursing at nurses, treated nurses like they are stupid). My nurse manager never helped when we were shorthanded. Nurses hardly ever got a lunch since we were always understaffed – more... and had complicated patients. – less
Admissions Assistant (Former Employee), Mobile, AL – September 23, 2013
Cons: angry hostile people.
This job was a job that built on people skills and trust in your fellow man. A job to learn compassion and the love for your fellow human being. The people I worked with were full of life and driven. From the people on admissions staff to the doctors and nurses. I really liked this job.
Treating patients as doctor orders, operating medical equipment, managing charts and discharging patients. Learned how to treat and help patients.Management could be trying at times, co workers were great and supportive. Hardest part was hours. Loved caring for patients.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Mobile, AL – July 8, 2013
Pros: employee discounts/payroll deductions for meals, uniforms, and gift shop purchases
Cons: short breaks and lunches (the cafeteria is too far away from the lab location).
A typical day at work would be during the early morning hours an early morning collector (someone who starts at 2, 3, or 4 am) would be assigned floors. That collector could have anywhere between 15 and 40 patients to stick depending on the workload. These early morning collectors would have to have these labs drawns and resulted by 7 am when the doctors – more... would take a look at the results and base their decisions on those levels. After 7 am the supervisor would keep track of how many labels would be on the board whether they were stats, urgents, or rountines. The management and co-workers were easy to work with in terms of helping you whenever you had a hardstick or if a patient refused to have their labs drawn. The hardest part of the job was sticking babies and children but it had to be done and the most enjoyable part of the job was the people I met while performing my duties. – less
Unit Secretary (Current Employee), Mobile, Al – May 8, 2013
Pros: flexibility with scheduling days off
Cons: holidays, weekends, no raises, lack of being able to take full break
Overall a good place to work, very fast. Can hardly get a full break without being interrupted. Pays better than all the other hospitals but haven't had a raise since I have been there. Food in new cafeteria is expensive and nasty.
Medical Secretary (Former Employee), Mobile, AL – April 15, 2013
Pros: nice benefits, great people at times
Cons: short lunch breaks- part of the jobs sometimes at a hospital, stressful at times
I was a Unit Secretary I loved this job I was young and the work was fast pace and it paid nicely. I work to keep the nursing station in order and thing the doctors or nurses needed they could come to the Unit Secretary, from ordering labs, filing reports in patient charts, inventory, helping with patients family, medical record filing, scanning, answering – more... phones, ect. – less
Registered Nurse- Telemetry (Current Employee), mobile al – February 22, 2013
Pros: doing what i love
Cons: having 6 or 7 patients
I work on a telemetry floor and it is pretty fast paced. I enjoy taking care of patients. I love that aspect of nursing. The organization is very focused on patient centered care. The hardest part of the job is I feel that nurses should have no more than 5 patient so that care can be adequate for each patient.
Very enjoyable and fun place to work especially with the men in the department
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee), Mobile, AL – January 4, 2013
Pros: free lunches on special days, turkeys at christmas and excellent healthcare insurance
Cons: night work, weekend work, christmas work, etc.
A typical day at work would begin at 7am in the shop. Coffee was provided. You had a few minutes to gather your tools and work orders for the day and interact with the other craftsmen. I learned to be efficient with my paper work (work orders) and over time the many fine points of the job. Management was excellent and fair in their interaction with – more... the employees. The bigest thing I miss is the many friends and my co-workers. Tipically, the hardest part of the job was getting access to the job site as many times it was occupied by patients or employees. You always had to take the inconvenience of everyone into account and accommodate them as much as possible before beginning work. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the employees and patients. – less
Patient care technician (Former Employee), Mobile, AL – September 22, 2012
Pros: i only had to work just 3 days a week
Cons: short breaks or no breaks, worked short handed most of the time and barely any teamwork, only a 2% raise for 4 years
If the day is short of staff, some coworkers did not want you to take a break which is required by law because it was just too much work to be done and taking a 30-45min break only put you or them behind. I learned a lot of hands on skills which is a plus. Some of my coworkers would be a team player but mostly were not. The hardest part of the job was – more... not able to grow with the company. The most part of my job was seeing the smile on the patients and coworkers faces after I did something to make their day. – less
Educator (Current Employee), Mobile, Alabama – August 26, 2012
Pros: large corporation
Cons: limited cultural diversity and opportunities to advance
Varies from day to day I have had to opportunity to experience various leadership styles. The hardest part of my job is limited profesional growth and development. The most enjoyable part of my job is the flexibility.
