CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant, Centreville, IL - May 20, 2016
I was not an employee for long due to the work hours, shifts and inconvenience. They are terrible. Med surg, which is like the only active dept other than ER, only offers 9 hour shifts. 630a-300p, 230p-11p, 1030p-700a. They do not offer 12 hour shifts like any other normal hospital. The nurse take forever to assist you. Call for pain med expect to see it 1-2 hrs later, no exaggeration, you'll be lucky if they come and ask your concern. Management is horrible. Emails get ignored . Cafeteria food is really a no no. Not a big selection at all. Sometimes I wish I could get ice-cream or a shake, you'll be lucky if the salad bar looks fresh, real lucky. Don't offer part time, only full time and PRN. Hope you're not looking to further education in school, going PRN is like pulling teeth even though there is not even 4 full time employees ON EACH SHIFT. Expect to spend your life in this place. You're not going to advance in any new techniques if you're looking to learn new things. Oh, and pray for a raise because I don't see it coming anytime soon beings that they still need new vital machines.
