Emergency Room RN (Current Employee) – Providence, RI – July 29, 2016
I hated paying money weekly to the union when the union provides us nothing but one day out of the year with free pizza. It is very tough to switch positions from day to night with the union rules. Management definetely plays favorites at this hospital .
Utility worker (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – May 3, 2016
This was my favorite. I was paid the most and benefits with this position was by far the best. I was per deim with job simply put i was on call. I worked in the kitchen. The workers was the best and i ENJOYED coming. I worked very hard because the hospital was Unionized. So you either worked to get the hours or you had to wait for your seniority. Just as I was approved for more hours death came to my family and i had to move home. I really hope to get that one back.
A Lifespan Partner (Current Employee) – Providence, RI 02903 – April 21, 2016
Lifespan is an excellent acute care hospital that always delivers top patient care. A typical work day is fast paced and always changing. I typically work 8 hour shifts and pick up other shift as needed. My coworkers have become more like my extended family because I have known them for so long. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing patients through there journey from admission to discharge.
Research Intern (Current Employee) – Providence, RI – April 6, 2016
A typical day at Rhode Island Hospital consists of receiving and completing tasks assigned to me. I have learned so much from the people around me and from trainings/meetings I've attended. Everyone has been very helpful and their team cohesion is inspiring and motivating. I could not ask for a better group to call my research team.
n/a (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – March 17, 2016
Everybody is miserable there. The benefits are great if you can afford them. If you work full time you pay 1/4 for benefits than you do if you work part time. The thing is, they've managed to cut many of the full time positions.
Radiologic Technologist (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – January 6, 2016
I spent the beginning of my career there and at first loved it, but towards the end, the industry became very much political and it was about who was getting a bonus rather than the patient or the employee physically taking care of the patients. I have to say the pay and benefits are very good, and you do achieve great experience at the cost of some unethical avenues.

Operating Room Assistant (Current Employee) – Providence, RI – November 12, 2015
It can be a very hectic day, you are always dealing with different personalities and the managers are always available to help out as well as other co-workers. Like any other job it isn't as easy as it looks but it is definitely manageable and the fact that you help people everyday is a great feeling.
