Pros: decent pay, job security, decent benefits
Cons: non-appreciative, treat workers terrible, everything is overanalyzed, no respect for good employees
When I was first hired at Reid Hospital, the orientation made the hospital look like an amazing place to be. They really made you feel special for getting the chance to work there....Until you actually started your job! Despite what you had done to prove yourself "trust-worthy" to a supervisor or director of the department, all employees were treated terrible. I worked in the Food & Nutrition Services department for about six months. The pay was great, but no matter how hard you worked, or how honest you were, they treated you like their worst employee there. You were not respected or appreciated no matter how hard you worked. What resulted in me quitting this job was their Bereavement Policy. A very close family friend I had known my entire life had passed away. For Non-family members, you were allowed one day to grieve. I told my supervisor that I would be attending a funeral and calling. They allowed me to go home early for the calling, but told me I was not going to miss work for the funeral since their policy only allows one day. At first they told me I would receive a write up for missing work, but the day I called in for the funeral, the director of the department had emailed all supervisors, warning that if I missed work for the funeral, I would be terminated. Because of moral obligations, I attended the funeral. In my opinion, work was not even half of an excuse for missing the funeral of someone so close. Because I chose to attend the funeral, I was told that I would be terminated. I felt it was necessary to resign before they had the chance to terminate me and damage my work history. I did not want to quit after 6 months but felt they left me no choice. C.A.R.E.... Courtesy, Attitude, Respect, Enthusiasm. Those were the standards of Reid hospital. For an employer who so harshly enforces these standards on their employees, (except for Doctors, Registered Nurses, and Administrators of course!) They could at least follow them as well!!!!
