poor management, no teamwork, more work no pay
Clinical (Former Employee), SouthsideNovember 19, 2013
Pros: close to home
Cons: no lunch sometimes, no ot, no employee compensation, no teamwork
office management lacked in communication with staff and was seldom in office to handle "practice manager" duties. When not there, the "supervisor" did not help and was not a team player. Continuously wanted to add work and reports, but no employee compensation. Management did not have staff's back.

Secretary (Current Employee), Princess Anne, VAOctober 29, 2013
A typical day at Sentara is being able to speak and have a conversation with the patients. We learn something different everyday dealing with patients and co-workers. I love helping and talking to the patients from day to day. Customer service is a valuable part in my employment and without that my day would be very unproductive. The hardest part of – more... my job is not being able to service or provide for the patient when I am not able to. Some of the comments that are made can be very harsh but in this environment you have to help the patient as much as you can. – less
