My current day on the job consists of teaching mine safety and health to people either in the mining industry or about to enter the industry. It is also my resposiblity to issue a certificate of training to each person who successfully completes the required training. I really enjoy interacting with students and sharing my knowledge and experience with others in the mining industry. Mining is in my blood and I am a third generation guy who simply loves our industry and the people is it.
expected to complete efficiently and timely the jobs of several people
Health Care Aide (Current Employee) – Johnson City, TN – July 9, 2017
being a CNA now of 11 years I have worked in several different working conditions, here at MSHA I feel as if you have no backing, constant change, no routine, less supplies, less hours, less staff, and the job isn't focused on the patient care as much as MSHA protocols, I feel as if the patients are not heard as a person but as a person who poorly manages their diet if obese, or someone is an addict because of their pain isn't controlled after several attempts, I honestly am broken hearted as I walk into work and 4 years ago it was standing room only, and now its desolate, no wonder were understaffed and at times its a miracle we have enough hands to perform a CODEBLUE
working with a few familiar faces of the hospital before we were bought by MSHA
no complete lunch break, no meal provided on weekends, no dr here all day
RN (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – June 27, 2017
nice place to work. Must be self supportive and able to carry a load No help, no techs, no support. good equipment but very little staff, must be seasoned nurse to be able to survive. Low pay and terrible benefits also.
Corporate Leave Management Coordinator (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – June 19, 2017
I was the only person system wide for 13 hospitals and over 10,000 employees to oversee all Work Comp, work comp settlements, FMLA, and OSHA Logs. It was very stressful, never had time for lunch and i never had another person as a backup if I was sick or on vacation. When i did take PTO I still had to work in order to get the job done due to everything being time sensitive and be compliant with DOL, the state and federal government.
Patient Service Representative (Current Employee) – Johnson City, TN – May 25, 2017
Lots of patients coming through with alot of tests and procedures to schedlule, alot of busy work like scanning records into patients charts, schduling follow up appointments, taking copays. I have learned to multitask at a very fast pace. The hardest part of the job is working at a fast pace while trying to make sure you have done everything correct. The most enjoyable part of the job is that everyone gets along and are like a big family.
Supply Technician (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – May 3, 2017
fill orders, answer phone, fill crash carts, go on codes, supply techs are treated very poorly but are asked how to use products by nurses. should read all the supply lables to get some knowledge. Supply is very cliq controlled. If you don't go with what the other workers are saying or doing you are outcasted and got rid off.
msha has many different types of jobs for people in the area, whether medical or clerical. It is a pretty good place to work.
RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – April 14, 2017
A typical day in case management is very busy with trying to get patients discharged safely, making sure they have equipment necessary, and also making sure they're in the correct status, inpatient vs observation. Also collaborating with a multidisciplinary team to insure all of the patients needs are met.
A typical day at work would start off with seeing how many side dishes and dessert i needed to make, or getting ready to wash the dishes after breakfast. -- just depended what position i worked that day.
Its a good job, but it does wear you out by the end of the day.
The work schedule was not always the best, days off were not always in a row.
enjoyable part of the job was knowing that the residents had a good meal that day.
hard part of the job was working the early hours of the morning
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – September 19, 2016
----Great hours and pay was ok. Most Co-Workers were great, some others were mean, judgmental, lazy, pushy, and was not a part of the team member life. ----Management: Unable to be partial, not people orientated, unable to preform there duties like professional (not able to keep there personal feeling out of there work). Most of them were not educated enough to be managers, and it showed in their performance and interactions with employees. Some were bullies to employees underneath them (looking down on them, talking harsh and down to them, being plan mean). Most Managers never showed respect to employees underneath them. ----What I learned was not to be friends with any one, don't go out of your way to help any one, because they will stab you in the back. Just do your job and not to worry about others: they will find there way. ----What I miss about working at the hospital was my patients and helping them. I am good at what i do and my patients loved me for it. ----The hardest thing was working a floor of 20 patients by yourself and the RN's too busy to help you, mostly. This included, bathing, vitals 4 x daily, feeding if needed, assist to the bathroom, answer call lights and ruin things for the RN's.
I love the field of nursing. Taking care of people is a humbling and fulling part of my life. If i could help one person in battling or over come a problem it was the greatest feeling. You have to not judge anyone in each circumstance. My co-workers were great, great team building and helping each other was a positive in our facility.
Information Systems Materials Management Intern (Current Employee) – Johnson City, TN – April 18, 2016
Everyday I would go into JCMC hospital I would be greeted by the employees I was working with. They took me in and taught me as much as they could, and included me on as much as they could. I learned so much at MSHA.
At the time I was employed at Indian Path Medical Center it was one of the greatest work environments I could ask for. Management was always willing to work with you on any situation. Staff was amazing and everyone seemed to work well together.
Management, well coordinated staff, cafeteria food wasn't bad
Good place to work but I got burn out after thirty one years
Coal Mine Inspector (Former Employee) – Madisonville, KY – April 9, 2016
This job was inspired to protect the health and safety of the coal miners and being a former coal miner it was needed. I learned that that you can life by the regulations and still be a productive coal mine. By and large the co workers and management were professional people. The hardest part of the job was when you had to investigate an accident that cause someone to get hurt or killed. The best part of the job was when the mining industry in west Kentucky went several years without a fatal accident.
B Good benefits
The responsibilities of this occupation is so great and mistakes can be disastrous
