Professional and certified (Former Employee) – Oceanside, CA – November 17, 2015
Unprofessional management. Unionized yet you get poor representation. Treats new employees poorly as if there is a hazing period. Bullying allowed. State has visited facility six times in a year for mishaps.
Sr. Staff Accountant for Hospital, (Current Employee) – Oceanside, CA – April 25, 2015
Fast paced environment during weeks of closing, I learned about physician recruitment loans & subsidiary agreements, enjoy working as part of a team, hardest part of the job is dealing with some staff that doesn't accept job criticism or opinions very well, other than that, I enjoy my inter-action with my co-workers and my job.
Billing Specialist (Former Employee) – Medford, MA – April 13, 2015
Tri City was a great place to work at I learned a lot there right out of HIgh School Working there was like being with family all day long. Had it good and bad days but I learned so much from everyone there.
Unit Coordinator/Unit Secretary (Current Employee) – Oceanside, CA – March 5, 2015
Pleasant Doctors and Board Members whom are always looking for ways to improve their services to serve the community needs. They invest in Education and technology and survey clients for input on these improvements and ask what else can they do to meet their needs.
Rehab (Former Employee) – Oceanside, CA – February 16, 2015
Great place to work but beware they have had many layoffs in the past. TCMC has had a lot of Administration changes in the past five years and they are run by a Board of Directors that has had much drama in the past. Great doctors and nurses but since it is a stand alone district hospital they will always have financial challenges.
Inpatient Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Vista, CA – January 21, 2015
I loved working for Tri-City. This hospital treats everyone with respect no matter what department you work in. My experience with the Pharmacy staff and Management was phenomenal. Great company all around.
Environmental Service Aide (Former Employee) – Oceanside, CA – January 16, 2015
I was a housekeeper there for a little over 3 years. I enjoyed what I did, but what made it most worth-while was the benefits, the pay, and the annual raises. My least favorite part, was the hours I personally worked. I worked 3-11:30 at night, few holidays off, and only one weekend a month off. I would definitely still be there if certain personal issues didn't arise.
Enjoyed the everchanging challenges of this position.
Clinical Social Worker (Former Employee) – Oceanside, CA – December 9, 2014
I cannot describe a typical day because there were no typical days. Every day presented a challenge and this is something that I enjoyed. We had a very diverse population and the work was fast paced. There were many challenges and I learned new things on almost a daily basis. Because of the populations we worked with my co-workers and I collaborated quite a bit. What one person did not know, another always did.
I enjoyed working with a treatment team and collaborating with therapists, doctors and nurses in the hospital setting.
Management at this facility seemed to be in constant fluctuation. There were several turn overs that would see many people laid off with new people filling positions and making rapid changes. This type of instability was the most difficult aspect of the position.
challenging situations, never boring.
constant changes in management and management styles.
Clinical Social Worker I Adult Out Patient (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA – December 6, 2014
I really had a deep love form my job. I had great rapport with my clients. I was able to handle many crisis and other clinical issues adequately and professionally. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interactions I had with such a diverse case load with such diverse issues. I enjoyed helping them and learning how to improve my services via clinical supervision. The most difficult part of the job was communicating effectively with administrators. The culture of the job is not too diverse and some communication strategies were offensive and gravely misunderstood. There was a lot of gossip with little resolution and some workplace bullying which caused unnecessary distress and sudden departures of quality staff. I hope that those issues will resolve themselves as the clients ultimately pay the price when they are constantly shifted from provider to provider and unable to acheive relief from their symptoms causing significant functional impairements :(.
great benefits, great benefit to community when functioning as a team
nepotism, exclusivity, poor mediation skills, work place bullying
IT Specialist (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA – November 17, 2014
Stay away from this company! Its so unfair that this mental health company is roped in with a location in Oceanside. It has nothing to do with Oceanside! The mental health center that really deserves the worst reviews ever is the location in Montclair and Pomona! Worst work environment I have ever seen! Absolutely depressing! For a company that tries to promote mental health wellness, they do not lead by example! They spend more time getting rid of people than actually helping their employees and building upon people's strengths and values. Backstabbing is rampant among management and employees. There is one particular person who is Indian who is an absolutely horrible person! She will slander anyone and for any reason! I don't understand how that woman is still employed there but then again, management there is a joke and they don't care about their employees! There are a lot of great people there who don't deserve to be treated like garbage! But management will treat you poorly and then get rid of you if you bring up some pressing issues. They tell you stuff like "you can vent to me" and then they stab you in the back, first chance they get! They will also meddle in your personal affairs. They will flat out tell you that you cannot associate with other people you work with. They will call it a "company conflict". This company abuses their right to be an "at will" employer. Countless people have been terminated for irrational reasons! I don't understand how the labor board hasn't done anything about this! They will fire you in the most awkward and bizarre way and then theymore... won't give you a reason why! They will say they don't have to provide a reason for firing you! This company does not deserve even one star! They seriously need to be reviewed by the labor board! And they need to be shut down! They provide a bunch of useless services to people anyways so wise up government and shut this company down, once and for all!!!!!less
good pay and benefits
horrible management and depressing work environment!
Clinical Social Worker (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA – November 7, 2014
This is a review for Tri-City Mental Health Center at 2008 North Garey Ave., Pomona, CA:
The agency sets you up for failure by giving you inordinate amounts of paperwork along with a high productivity standard, resulting in you having no other choice but to take work home or suffer consequences. Staff are extremely stressed out and the worst part of it all is that there is no recognition for all the hard work and client care the clinical staff put in. Employee morale is the worst that I've seen at any agency I have ever worked for. Management is not supportive of staff as they are more interested in prying into your personal lives and crossing boundaries that are beyond unethical. Management also does not value professionalism, in fact they despise it. This is by far the worst community mental health agency one can work for. They are more interested in retaining the staff that have been known to openly commit fraud, by making up a ridiculous amount of hours to exceed productivity and pretending to see clients. In fact, management encourages this. The turnover here is high due to employees getting terminated often (because you are not liked or you voice your honest opinion) and in general, quitting because they are frustrated with the miserable and corrupt environment they are exposed to. It's not uncommon for people to start working and quit after a few days, few weeks, or few months. And, if you tell management that you are leaving, be prepared to get threatened. They don't want others to know the truth about how the agency is run. Do yourself a favor and stay far, far away.more... Don't allow the salary to entice you, after all, it’s the ONLY reason why anyone would want to work here.less
salary, flexible work hours
lack of support from management, negative work environment, no positive reinforcement, low employee morale, high turnover, stressful, easily burned out, excessive meetings and documentation, no work life balance, no employee recognition
Lead Security Officer (Former Employee) – Oceanside, CA – September 17, 2014
As an employee for Tri-City Hospital, I was able to enjoy working with the best security staff in my 14 years of security. I was able to contribute great ideas and implement different things and procedures to make this the best security staff available. I received defensive tactics training, conflict resolutions training, and many other types of training.
great staff, job freedom, training opportunities
mangement did not listen to employees, fraternization issues, gossiping problems
Run far away from this place....the community can't even stand this place.
Therapist (Former Employee) – Pomona, Ca – July 20, 2014
No wonder this place went bankrupt a few years ago. If you are a clinician considering an internship or career here don't do it. Your ethics and morals will be tested by management and not your clients. If you also feel that having 15 min sessions with clients is appropriate then this is the place for you. Staff live in constant fear they'll be fired if they say anything against this dictatorship. Please apply elsewhere where you can actually grow as a therapist. The individual and group supervision are elementary at best.
toxic management, toni (executive director) has 'splitting' tendencies, caseloads in excess of 55, i was asked to do unethical charting practices (signing off on care plans/assessments i never did), the list goes on....
