Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Williamsport, PA – February 24, 2017
There were minor issues with serving in the military and possibly being deployed for 2-4 months. The struggle was to keep the position that I currently worked. Being told that I would possibly be moved around. Yet, there is a wonderful career advancement tool for tuition assistance. Definitely great to look at.

my profession is vocational, i like doing what i'm doing , since i get these jobs , i enjoyed them. Because taking care of people is my passion.
Sometimes , i get hard time doing my work , not because of the residents, like i know there is good time or bad time , However, i do care of all at any time. The most enjoble part of the is when i look at my residents cleaned up and partipated on all activities i had on my agenda.

The management is terrible and they don't care to hear your concerns. The providers for the most part are great however most don't stick around too long. Short staffed, no open door policy and a lot of double standards!! Don't waste your time
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Williamsport, PA – April 18, 2016
You never know what a typical day is going to be like only because it is an emergency room. I have learned many things especially critical care such as cardiac arrest patients, and other severe cases such as gun shot victims. I have improved on my blood drawing skills as well along with vitals. Management is a little shortcoming in how they perform their job and very quick to judge. The hardest part of the job is trying to calm down angry patients due to wait time or even lending an ear because they do not agree with what the doctor might say.The most enjoyable part of the job is the other techs and the RN's
Materials Management Technician (Former Employee) – Williamsport Regional Medical Center – January 25, 2016
Worked 15 years and my position was eliminated. duties were reassigned to Aramark. As I told VP who eliminated my position, Aramark now has on any given day at least three poorly trained people doing what I did alone and thay know lives depend on the job being done properly.. When I was let go I had gone 63 months without a vacation. Yes, thats SIXTYTHREE months! No unexcused absences in FIFTEEN years and my reward is to have my position eliminated. Loyalty is a oneway street with them.
No loyalty, management hasn't a clue, think Aramark can take over any position with no training
Hospital and Physician Bill Clerk (Former Employee) – Williamsport, PA – January 4, 2016
The typical day would begin with logging into the telephones, and fielding calls from patients about their account balances or dealing with insurance companies on behalf of the patients.
The managers were strict but fun to be with they always were willing to assist us with accounts or how to deal with customers who not always so nice.
My co-workers were fun, but in this line of work we all had our own patients to deal with so their was not a lot of interaction.
the hardest part of this job was dealing with angry patients sometimes you get those patients that have less then stellar vocabulary. But, the most enjoyable part of the job was helping patients with their accounts.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Williamsport, PA – July 29, 2015
I loved my job as a phlebotomist. However they do not follow the policies they have set unless it is in their favor. They are usually understaffed and you are made to stay to work double shifts very frequently. favoritism is HUGE!! They DO NOT care about their employees. They are all about the money.
Caring Enviroment where life actually was valuable to families and staff
ICU Nurse Extender (Former Employee) – Williamsport, PA – May 27, 2015
Get report from the shift extender before you. Pick up after them if they had a busy day and do the best you can do. Help everywhere you can! Give the best care in the world as if they were family or meant something to you! Communicate to nurses, docs, and techs. Last but not least love what you do and do it from the heart so the family and patients feel your compassion.
LEAD TECHNOLOGIST (Current Employee) – Williamsport, PA – May 21, 2015
Lower Level employees attempt to work as a team. Management makes this difficult sometimes. Technical population is past middle age. Vacated jobs are not filled. Constant demand for more work with fewer people, and no mistakes. This is setting the stage for errors. Large volumes of work are delivered many times throughout the day. The team works through the delivery, while accommodating the numerous phone calls and STAT work from within the hospital. As soon as one delivery is complete, another comes. This is our normal day. The job becomes difficult when hands are diverted to troubleshoot machinery. This happens on almost a daily basis. Required PPE is sweltering. Management promised a lighter lab coat, then changed their offer. The environment is very uncomfortable during the summer. The most enjoyable part of the job is working well as a team, knowing we are doing our best for our patients, and making our employer financially sound.

Registered Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Williamsport, PA – May 19, 2015
The doctors, staff , and care providers are amazing. The management and higher ups care only for making the big bucks. They have no idea what it's like to work directly with the 'customers' who in most cases are not satisfied with the direction SHS is going.
