Pros: it barely paid the bills, but they got paid
Cons: benefits and pay are minimal, no consistency with anything.
A typical day at work would be checking patients in for their appointments, making sure all of their information was input into the system correctly, give them paperwork for their appointment and send them on their way.
I'm thankful for the opportunity I was given to get my feet wet in the medical field, however, this place has made me want to run far away from the healthcare field all together.
Training was a joke. I pretty much learned everything on my own by making mistakes and getting in trouble for it, or by having another employee who had been there longer instruct me on how to do something. My manager and team lead where always unreachable and I hardly ever seen them. I was promised a schedule that I never got and because of the high turnover rate in the Admissions department, I probably never would get a consistent schedule.
Run far from the Admissions department. It has one of the highest turn over rates out of the entire hospital.
