The worst job I ever been on. Will not work with them again. A typical day at work was very stressful. I felt threaten and harassed daily by client and management. They have very poor people skills. They treated employees bad. My foreman was not good at his job. and a bit racists. I was held back and not allowed to train on heavy dirt equipment.
File Clerk (Former Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – April 6, 2017
After you get laid-off it hard to reach someone in the Deer park office. They do not return any of your call. The answer services state that some one will call you in 24 to 48 hours an I been waiting for three months.
UC Physician (Former Employee) – Lewiston, ID – March 25, 2017
I worked for 5 years here in their Express Care. The support staff was excellent. The Administration always has your back. Compensation is great and you can work the amount of hours that is comfortable for you. It is a very collaborative environment. I cannot recommend VMC enough. I was sad to leave.
Patient Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Renton, WA – March 14, 2017
a typical day of work- walk/ stand most of the day. running around answering all the call lights, short breaks
I learned that you do the best you can. sometimes, you cant do everything. Sometimes, you just have to tell yourself its okay to ask for help.
Management- they are always willing to listen to you. they take the time to talk with you regardless how busy they are they make sure they are there for their employees. Administration- still gap communication between the employees and admin.
workplace culture- a diverse atmosphere to work in
hardest part of the job- not enough staff
most enjoyable part of the job- staff knows how to have fun, regardless of how stressful it can be. we have potlucks to celebrate each-others hard work. we work as a team.
Journeyman Ironworker, Safety Audit Team (Former Employee) – Charleston, TN, LA, & TX – March 14, 2017
While working for PCL, I was given the opportunity to prove myself as a Woman in Construction. I began working as an Ironworker Helper, and then was promoted to Journeyman after proving myself worthy. I then was transferred to work in the Pipe Department. I also participated on the Behavior Based Observation Safety Audit Team. As an Ironworker I fabricated, built, and installed framos pipe supports. I walked with Quality Control to verify proper installation of supports. After being transferred to the Pipe dept. I oversaw a crew of 8 pipefitters by issuing work packages for installation of spools, valves, gaskets, etc. I compiled spool requests, material requests, and completed Foreman's daily report. I created punch lists, and also made corrections per punch lists. I was allowed to verify spool, gasket, and valve installation with Quality Control specialists prior to selling work packages to the client. I updated information on production from daily reports. On the BBO Safety Audit Team I participated in the monitoring of at risk work habits of employees. During safe work audits I complimented safe work or made proper interventions. I am very grateful for this opportunity for nowhere else has any contractor recognized my skills, talents, and leadership abilities. Thank you PCL.
Lead Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – March 7, 2017
Management was horrible, and with horrible leaders, drama was allowed. For the most part a learned a great deal. I got a great deal of experience and enjoyed working to assist in helping to getting patients to a healthy and stable lifestyle.
