Job Work/Life Balance
Good people to work with. HR are incredible and supportive
Charge Nurse (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – November 25, 2015
Pros: Fellow staff support
Cons: Not getting off the floor lunches and breaks
Good opportunity for learning and growth. Had wonderful colleagues to work with. Typical red tape with health care which everyone deals with. Most frustrating thing is the difficulty in taking breaks and lunches. The most wonderful part of the job was seeing our team come together during a crises and working as one for as long as it took to save our patient or work hard until we could see that our work was futile. We have a wonderful team who support one another in hard situations and that is fulfilling to see that kind of support
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – October 2, 2015
Pros: Flexible hours
Cons: Understaffed at times
Enjoyable place to work with kind and supportive staff. Small hospital so everyone knew each other, which led to a fun environment. Working as a float CNA I was able to see all different areas of the hospital and the nursing staff were willing to teach and show me new things.
Enjoyable work environment and great rapport with co-workers.
Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – August 20, 2015
Pros: I love my job and co-workers.
Begin the day with stocking rooms with linens, logging temperature for blanket warmer and eye was stations, turning on machines and scanning any in-patients that are ordered for the morning. Due my typical paperwork and look for priors on outpatients and print their questionaires. I have learned patience and how to handle difficult and elderly patients in a polite way. I have learned how to be strong for not only myself but family members going through a hard time. I enjoy my co-workers. We have a very strong bond with eachother in the Radiology Dept. I love working here and have created many friendships along the way that I will take for me for the rest of my life. The hardest part of my job is taking call. The most enjoyable part of my job is my job!!!

Cook (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, Utah – November 26, 2014
Pros: free food
Cons: hour cuts, turnover
I typical prepped food for caterings and formal events. I also served customers in a cafe setting and completed stocking. I learned time management and how to complete tasks quickly. I learned how to work as a team with my co workers and go the extra mile in a number of positions. I learned how to work under high pressure and complete difficult tasks. I learned communication skills with customers to complete tasks and solve problems quickly and efficiently. My managers really care about they're employees and help them succeed. They communicate well with they're employees. They were always fair and understanding. All of the people i worked with were great. Everyone was really nice and easy to talk to. We all worked very well together and worked as a team. The most difficult part of my job was the hours I had to work. Most of my shift were very long. The thing i enjoyed the most was using my creativity to produce excellent food and customer service.
Buyer (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – October 28, 2013
Every day is very busy trying to keep the hospital supplied with needed resources. I have learned that healthcare is ever changing. Management is great and co-workers are awesome. Hardest part of the job is maintaining resources because of shortages and backorders. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to be a part of the healing process for patients.
Fun workplace with great co-workers and have learned a lot through the years
E.R. Technician/Clerk (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – October 15, 2013
Pros: being recognized for our hard work
Cons: we don't always get our breaks when it's busy
I have enjoyed working with my co-workers, nurses and doctors, and have learned so much from all of them. I am loyal to the company and they have treated me well. In the ER so many different things and patients come through the door. I have loved rising to the challenge of each of them. My manager always has a positive attitude and solves any problems to the best of his ability. The hardest part of my job has been to work within the fine line of ER tech and ER clerk. I have learned to tailor my job functions to each doctor on shift. Some prefer you to stay at the desk and others like you to be on the floor. Then there's helping out the nurses as much as possible. It's a difficult thing to appease everybody and has taken years to learn. My co-workers are very appreciative for what I do for them including those in other departments. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping to save the life of a critical patient. We work as a team so everything runs smoothly (most of the time).
Very fast paced environment that allowed promotions and rewards.
Financial Coordinator (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – June 26, 2013
Pros: benefits, and companies positive outlook on promotions and being the best at what they did.
Cons: breaks were hard to take in my position
I really enjoyed my time working at Salt Lake Regional Medical Center. I learned so much about working in a hospital setting. I enjoyed working with the patients and helping them with there needs. I think the hardest part of my job was balancing the work and my family life. I really loved all the aspects of my job from pricing pre scheduled surgeries to room visits. I learned a lot from the experience. I left due to a new marriage.
rn (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – March 24, 2013
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: equipment that may not work like the bed alarms
I have been here for 17 yrs. I have had the opportunity to specialize on the rehab and geriatric psych units. I have floated to med surg and ortho units to gain experience in these areas. I feel confident in the training i have received that i am flexible and able to adapt to the type of work and can preform the skills needed to maintain the high level of care required. I have precepted new hires on both the psych and rehab units, i have been assisgned tasks to review and audit charts, design more efficent ways of doing things. i enjoy my patients and take their care very seriously, it is important to me that when my shift is over i know i have done everything to make the patients day a little bit better. i try and encourage my coworkers to have the attitude of caring as well.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – June 10, 2012
Pros: getting to help patients. 12 hour shifts.
Cons: no time for lunch, people that will not help when asked, management never seems to appreciate what the staff does
Not certain were my day will start. I float throughout the hospital. So I have to recieve the information as to were I will go for the day. Being the float pool the workers are not always very happy to see you on the floor. Yet there are employees that are always nice and seems glad to have you come and help. Yet if you need assistance there seems to be very little people willing to be a part of helping you. I always feel like the management is not pleased to see me know matter were I am. Yet the most important part of the job is to help the patients. That I get to help and be with the patients and I am very glad to be able to assist them first. They are the most important part of my job.
