very small facility everyone knows your name
Certified Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Seaford, DE – February 20, 2013
Loved working here was my first hospital working at. Was an intern, received my training here, then was hired a few weeks in of my internship. I learned a lot here. Would come in 5 am do morning rounds then come downstairs and draw blood in outpatients or work inside the lab answering phones and processing specimens. My co-workers had been there for years, some had started the year I was born, so I had to go earn their trust and respect. Went through a "hazing" phase for the first year. Wasn't even sure I was going to stay. Everyone outside of my department loved me right of way and soon my immediate co-workers did too. I began training any new hires, and moved up the ranks. Management changed a lot when I worked there at one time we didn't have a laboratory director for 6 months and we were able to work together. This was a very small private hospital, after a while you would know all of the employees names. There wasn't much room for growth. You were a phlebotomist that's it, after a few years you reached a salary that was "maxed out" and you would be "grandfathered" in to that salary. I loved the job but I was driving almost an hour to get there, and would go a year and only get a 30 cent raise based on your eval. And 40 cent would be the highest you could get. I love the people I worked with, I loved the patients, I loved the job.
no room for growth, would be grandfathered into salary
