Overall the laboratory at Pardee has a great quality culture, and good people to work with. Higher management does not foster a good relationship with the laboratory though. The wages are not competitive, and the healthcare insurance has deteriorated substantially since I began working here.
I enjoyed every aspect of working at this hospital. The staff was great and the supervisor and manager were fair and helpful. The hardest part of the job was being the charge therapist. I learned a lot from working at this hospital, including from the physicians I worked with.
I worked at Pardee for 16 years in multiple capacities. All of my bosses were fair and seemed to care about your welfare. The pros for me were a great cafeteria with good food. Also, the bonds of friendship that were formed from working so closely together with your team made the job less stressful. The only con was the increase of computer use to do your job, and less time for patient care because of this. I know that's the "way of the future", but I truly believe the customer suffers.
I have worked at Pardee for 9.5 years and have mostly enjoyed my time there. The past year has been more stressful there than in years past. It seems to be a punitive environment which does not help alleviate stress.
Discounts on cell service and at cafeteria
Punitive environment. Doesnt feel like they lisyten to employee suggestions on improvement

I worked there for about ten years and I got to know of them. I left after having my first child. It was necessary for me to leave but I do miss them. I know a lot of them are no longer there so I would probably not go back there mainly because I do not live in North Carolina anymore.
Management was very fair. Great place to work. Co-workers were very helpful. Work environment , however, was very stressful due to the type of patients that I was taking care of. However, there was always someone that you could go to for help
I was working in a hospital environment.I had to do venipunctures on patient so the blood samples good be tested in the lab so the doctors were able to determine the proper care for the patient.This is the first place I learned how to do venipuctures. I learned how to use 21 gauge needle and 25 guage butter fly needle which I became very proficient with difficult venipuncture. Management was awesome. The hardest part of the job is doing difficult venipuncture without collapsing the vein or causing a hematoma or hemolysis of blood sample. Loved the work enviroment, management, emplyees and patients.
Pardee was a nice small hospital to work for. I felt cared about by my coworkers and management team. We worked under a shared governance model, which gave us all buy-in to the unit. The only way it was lacking was the salary and benefits. I made barely enough to pay my bills. They also did not have short term disability benefits, which meant I had to save up PTO and only had 4 weeks off after the birth of my first son
