Great Place To Get Your Foot In The Door
Administrator (Current Employee) – Fayetteville, GA – May 16, 2017
If seeking entry into the medical field, Piedmont is a great place to start. Piedmont Heart does well with training, I hear. I started in administrative position right after getting my BA in Hospital Administration. Float pool pays a dollar more an hour, but if you go full time, they will take it away to give you benefits. After two yrs and 20 cent raises a year, it becomes obvious of changing. Internal transfers for more money are few unless you know someone. It seems applying for transfers, all end up in a black hole somewhere. I went back to school and ended up being able to transfer while still taking classes. No real on the job training with my new job, but I take classes on my own time. Other hospitals pay six dollars more an hour for what I do, but they also require a lot more work and are a lot further away for commuting. They also have hired people after me with 2 dollars more an hour than I currently make and I am training them. That two dollars, is 3 years of pay increases. Emory has a much better pay scale. Post it, and pay everyone the same starting wage. Job Work/life 5, compensation 2, job security is great, but advancement is low 2, job culture 4.. Overall for being a top company to work for, it is a 3.
Job security, Job Culture, Great entry level
BAD cost of living raises, bad advancement opportunities, BAD at equal pay- new hires/no experience get paid $2 more that current employees.
