Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), New Brunswick, NJ – August 19, 2014
Pros: employee discount in cafeteria
Cons: must pay for deck parking
Work day consisted of checking patient IVs in the morning and then replacing and delivering missing medications throughout the day. This consists of prepackaged tablets and capsules, preparing enemas, topical solutions, and intravenous solutions, and compounding syrups, suspensions, and mouthwashes. Pyxis MedStation systems are also used on a daily – more... basis. Upon my leaving, the pharmacy was implementing an automated pharmacy carousel system.
Most of the coworkers are kind and courteous and are willing to help you if your work gets backed up. Hardest part of the job would be figuring out the maze like structure of the hospital, once you learn the short cuts to the units it will help shave off a lot of time which can be used for productive work. – less
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), New Brunswick, NJ – August 9, 2014
Cons: limited time off
Very difficult place to work-physicians were difficult to work with very disrespectful to the staff most of the time. Don't know what happens behind closed doors. Very doctor oriented hospital-nurses endure abuse.
Clinical Care Tech (Current Employee), New Brunswick, NJ – August 5, 2014
At times the floor can be extremely busy. You maybe asked to do numerous things all at once. I was lucky to work with a group that would help each other out. There was no my patient, your patient attitude. Working in an university hospital you get to see and talk about rare conditions not found in most places. We are one big family, not do we only work – more... together but we spend our free time with each other. The boss is one of us and is include. – less

Pros: great place to move up and grow.
A typical day can be high pace and very busy but fun, ive learned how to work under a very high pressure situations and resolve issues in a timely manner. supervisors are very efficient and organized and great leaders. my co-workers are also hard working and helpful. most difficult part is taking on all request from different supervisors and different – more... departments and must be carried out in a timely manner correctly. the best part is after fulfilling all demands is to see the costumer/patient satisfied. this diffidently a great environment for learning and growing. – less
Productive and Great experience with a feel-good vibe
volunteer/intern in Child's Life department (Current Employee), New Brunswick, NJ – May 29, 2014
I usually volunteer saturday mornings and I continually look forward to going. The child-life specialists are so amazing and helpful and probably the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I usually spend time with the kids and help them take their mind off being ill by playing games with them, reading to them, watching movies with them, – more... holding them (babies), etc. The most difficult part of my job was to approach the children and families because I didn't want to overstep my welcome and I was a little shy however this position really helped me overcome that and I now look forward to approaching families and children and helping them cope with the difficult situation in a light-hearted way. I also no longer shy about approaching families and I owe this position the credit. – less
Unit Clerk (Former Employee), New Brunswick, NJ – May 28, 2014
Pros: patients always grateful
Cons: management, lack of communication
The routine was pretty much the same daily with entering patient information and accommodation. Co-workers along with management were never to keen to share their knowledge of the workplace or to help make the job easier. The hardest part was always deciphering the physician handwriting to avoid any patient medication errors.
