A very unorganized area at times from managers to HR questions. Most times it took longer than two weeks for responses. Also hard to find parking and always need to watch out for homeless.

The most enjoyable part of my job is caring for my patient with good outcome and getting along as a team with my co-workers.

Facilities Support Coordinator (Current Employee), Bellingham, WAJanuary 8, 2015
Pros: flexible
Cons: health benefits decline
This job has worked for me because not one day is ever the same. I like it when all of our co-workers work together during an emergent issue.

It's time to move closer to my home state of Pennsylvania to be closer to my family.

I worked in the Environmental Services Department at St. Joseph, their was a lot going on at the time, but managment really didnt do a good job with the staff, and St. Joesph organization really didnt make environmental services feel apart of the team, with all the other departments in the hospital.

Great people
Surgical Technologist (Current Employee), Houston, TXAugust 29, 2014
Pros: great people
Cons: some days might get late lunch
I've currently worked at St. Joseph for the past four years. I started out as a CNA and then later became a CST. My co workers are honestly some of the best people I've ever had the privilege to work with. A typical day in the OR involves printing that days schedule, writing the board and then pulling for the cases. Myself and the other Techs then complete the cases for that day. Due to the self governing nature of my department I've learned a lot about time management and planning ahead. The nature of my job might be considered stressful by some, but having the right people surrounding you makes it all worth it .

Great place to work, and there is always something to learn
Food Service Worker (Current Employee), Stockton, CAAugust 16, 2014
Pros: pick up shifts from other workers, meeting people from other departments.
Cons: good benifits, vacation
Clock in ready to work, make sure up put a hair net on, and wash your hands. Make sure keep hands washed through course of the day. Work on tray-line, catering for different meetings, and I work in the café. In the café you work the grill, cashier, serving, and your always cleaning, sanitizing, sweeping, and moping. Management are easy to get along with, and co-workers are to. I don't think that there is a hard part to doing my jobs because you just do it and get it done. Catering, it can be a lot to do but, it is a challenge, and at the end of the day I know I done a good job.

Best co-workers - worked well as a team
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Reading, PAAugust 7, 2014
Pros: small hospital
Cons: to high pt/nurse ratio for er
5 to 7 pt at a time. Responsible for assessment of pt, starting IVs, doing blood draws, EKG's, cardiac monitoring as necessary. Giving medications and treatments as needed. Often would be in charge of 6 to 10 other RN's and CA's. Would also do triage and fastrack area. 12 hour shifts with 1 - 1/2 hour break. No other breaks. Great team of nurses, worked well together.

Challenging in many ways
RN/Staff Nurse (Former Employee), Reading, PAAugust 5, 2014
Pros: located in a nice rural area, flexible scheduling, 12 hour shifts
Cons: always short-staffed, higher pt-rn ratios, poor quality equipment
Due to staffing issues, CNA's are frequently not available to assist RN's in basic patient care. Higher pt-RN ratios make the job very stressful. This facility has it's share of bullies and genuinely nice staff. Night shift staff working 12 hours get no lunch, only two 15 minute breaks. RN's here are always on the low end of the area's pay scale. The hardest part of the job is the fact that management doesn't support nursing needs. As always, the best part of the job is the patients!
