Medical Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Sentara Independence – February 4, 2016
They are very strict and a lot of management are not friendly or approachable. The position that I had was too much for one person to work by themselves. The majority of staff are overworked and this should not be allowed to take place.
Technical Manager (Current Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – September 30, 2015
When leadership states that they condone work/life balance, it's not just words. They practice it, they encourage it, and they support it. The challenges are no different than other employers I'm sure. When it comes to HIT, security is top priority, however it can sometimes be a barrier to innovation. I'm not convinced that this is a bad thing, but it does slow down the process.
Collaborative leadership, positive work environment
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – September 25, 2015
A typical day at work for me is walking around picking orders to send out to hospitals and I enjoy it. I've learned how to use certain machines and handhelds for inventory. My coworkers and managers have close relationships and the most enjoyable part is meeting new people.

Administrative Associate (Former Employee) – chesapeake – September 8, 2015
A typical day at Sentara was printing schedules and registering all the patients for their procedures. Not to leave off there is always add ons coming in my inbox or through a phone call. I learned that if you do your work in a time manner you will not be smothered with other work that is need like asap. Management was ok, just like to be treated with respect. My co workers were a trip. I tried to stay to myself and not to have them to allow me to get behind because they wanted to socialize.My job wasn't hard at all. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I was able to register my patients and also help out where help was needed.

=Work Environment very fast paced with working for multiple =Managers, Directors, and Units. =Learned many diverse faucets of working in a hospital environment. =Co-workers were typically in a very good mood and cheerful. =Most difficult aspect of the job was having to deal with management that would request one thing and when they received it would change their mind and want the total opposite thing. =The best part of the job was the interaction with many diverse individuals.
Clincal Lab Assistant (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – August 28, 2015
Depends on what shift you work on, work flow could be a lot which makes the day go by fast. No team players. A lot of Processing Staff continue not to work and you pick up the load. Supervisory doesn't supervises but talk about the latest gossip. You do find some good workers that are willing to do the extra mile and actually work. The Med Techs are great. Do not complain to management or you'll be labeled.
Elizabeth City SMG office employee (Current Employee) – Elizabeth City, NC – August 27, 2015
If you are looking for a career look elsewhere. As an employee you are told there is an open door policy, but for this SMG site that is not true, you are their puppet, do more work, less pay, unless you are in the "IN" crowd with management. To move up you must lie and manipulate. Pay has never been accurate nor has management made any corrective action when brought to their attention. Management "wants to lay low on the radar!". Every dept is different but this is all in reference to SMG site in Elizabeth City. I'm looking for another company.
productive and very professional work place setting.
Benefits Specialist (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – August 23, 2015
Working for Sentara was very enjoyable. Sentara provided a professional environment along with great co-workers who always are willing to give a helping hand when needed. The management team are uplifting as well. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the occasional irate customer when there is a error in their benefits structure. The most enjoyable part of the job is making every customer feel important, confident and statisfied.

Marketing PR Coordinator, Physican Support (Former Employee) – Materials Management Chesapeake VA – August 11, 2015
The office atmosphere was like a family. Working with people that have been all over Sentara and some working there 30+ years helped developed relationships that created great team work. Management doors are almost always open, and if you needed, you could talk to them about any challenges that you are facing. Having children - they were understanding that life happens outside of work, and were understanding when you needed a little flexibility.
The benefits being a Sentara employee are amazing, second to none.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Woodbridge, VA – August 7, 2015
Registration's management needs to be fixed IMMEDIATELY. There is an extremely high turnover rate and staffing issues. Employees feel unappreciated and overworked with little to none recognition/compensation.
Sr. Data Analyst (Former Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – August 6, 2015
Large company with plenty room for growth! I was encouraged to pursue schooling in means of advancing throughout the company instead of staying stagnant in my current position. Overall great place to work!
I enjoyed most that i was able to make my own schedule to fit my life. I was not bound to a specific schedule. The hardest part of my job was when my patients passed away. I really enjoyed my coworkers most were very nice and friendly
