The fast track
Director of Guest Services (Former Employee), New Lenox, ILNovember 13, 2014
Leading a department that touches over 250,000 lives per year requires a total commitment of 24/7. Balancing the fast pace of changes in the health care market with the personal needs employees is a constant challenge. A typical day is divided into meetings with leaders of other departments, rounding in work areas with staff and responding to requests from Physician offices and patients. The most difficult part of leading a team is leaving the office at the end of the day knowing there is still so much more work to be done. The job satisfaction as leader is to hire and train new employees who then carry the culture of customer satisfaction forward.

Quiet and stressful!
Telecommunications Operator (Former Employee), New Lenox, ILSeptember 17, 2014
Pros: the employee cards, environment, and benefits.
Cons: not being able to pick up shifts evenly.
Working as a Telecommunications Operator on the grave shift hours was pretty tough at times. I was alone in a little office of the basement for eight hours. There were not a lot of calls, and it would make you sleepy most of the time. But I loved this job because I did like our work environment. It was positive and calm. I had good feelings working at that hospital. I understood what I was doing, and I loved what I was doing. Anytime anyone needed assistance whether your a patient or an employee; someone was there to help you. My managers were a huge part of the team. They constantly stayed on task of what they needed to get done. They also always visited us a many times a day to make sure everyone was okay, and they would just come and talk with us. I feel we all had a good relationship with management. The hardest part of my job was when i first started working there. I felt it was so confusing and so stressful. All I could hear was tons and tons of phones ringing and people talking. But once I sat down and experienced the rush myself, I got into the groove of things and got into my work flow. My most favorite part of the job was when a patient would call the hospital and let us know they were on their way to have a baby! Every time I took a phone call like that I would be so excited! I would congratulate them, and I felt so happy for those people.

Acute Rehab Social Worker/Discharge Planner (Current Employee), New Lenox, ILJune 27, 2014
Pros: great work environment
Cons: na
The days at work are very busy but very rewarding. I have great co-workers. They are supportive and ready to brainstorm to insure a patient will discharge from the hospital with a safe discharge plan. The hardest part of the job is working with a very ill and sometimes a terminal patient. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing a patient recover and return to their family.

Company that puts emphasis on patient care.
MLT (Current Employee), New Lenox, ILFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: the people i work with on a daily basis.
I work on the PM shift and work in all departments of the lab. I have an excellent work repor with my co-workers and we rely on each other when we are extremely busy, which tends to be quite often these days. We on our shift tend to be more self sufficient I believe because most of the managers have left. The hardest part would also be the part that I enjoy and learn from. That would be when we are short or an analyzer is down and you have to time manage very efficiently to get your analyzer working or cover the spot thats short and get your results out in a timely manner.

Satisfactory work environment; good co workers for a number of years.
Help Desk Analyst/Computer Operations (Former Employee), New Lenox, ILSeptember 14, 2013
Pros: pretty much a friendly environment. everyone tried to help one another as possible.
Cons: pay scale not what it should be for job requirements.
It was a good work environment for many of the years I was employed. Sometimes stressful related to customer relations: demanding something get "fixed now--it cannot wait". The more enjoyable aspect of the job was to resolve problems which arose to the satisfaction of everyone involved. Family type atmosphere in the early years.

Pros: excellent benefits since it is a large institution, great pay for the weekend program i was employed in for the five years it was in effect.
Cons: the weekend program was discontinued after five years.
Working in the oncology unit with hospice and respite care was very rewarding. There was a team nursing approach to patient care. Everyone worked together as a team and management was experienced and supportive. The hardest part of my job was leaving Silver Cross. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with a dedicated staff who appreciated one another and loved giving nursing care.
