Loved my co-workers and surgeons. Very family like atmosphere amoung most co-workers
Certified Surgical Technologist (Current Employee) – Cleveland, TN – January 11, 2017
Typical work day, in three years never had but 2- 15 breaks offered. No communication from management if you were not getting lunch break or were needed to stay late! The place is very understaffed. There were communication issues between managers which in turn made things difficult on the employees. When I first hired on there the moral was good, but has steadily declined to a miserable low. Again, the co-workers were amazing. I stayed there 3+ years because the people were genuinely helpful and overall nice. You've got your couple anywhere you work in an OR setting that are drama queens. I've made many friends that have become life long friendships.
But as far as working there again, I won't if I can prevent it. CHS aka Tennova is not the most ideal company to work for. Raises are pennies, benefits are few, continuing education is not priority to administration. Tuition reimbursement is not a benefit when having to pay back in time worked immediately following graduation. Recruitment and retention are lacking considerably at Tennova of Cleveland.
