The best coworkers I have ever had...with little else
Former Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – May 28, 2017
I know it might be hard to believe, but TMC was actually great to work at. Not great to work for, but great to work AT. The main reason was the staff. TMC has great staff! I don't know how they do it, but they always manage to find and hire great people that are caring and kind. If you are looking for a place with people you might one day call family, than this is it.
However, working here is sometimes difficult and can cause people to burn out. A number of staff have found it difficult to stay because the pay is just alright with little to no raises. The units are often understaffed (making EVERYTHING more difficult) and you can forget about getting any kind of break. Also, and though I understand the position they are in, I must say this, the management can be a real hassle. Their rate of turn over is often higher than that of the nursing staff and once the become management they seem to forget what it was like to work on the floor.
Saying all of this, I realize I may turn people off from the job, but I still loved working there. It's hard work, but most hospitals are very hard work. Personally, for me, I would rather have somewhat more difficult work and know that the people I am in the trenches with can be trusted. No staff is more trust worthy than TMC's and for me that goes a long way. This staff will have your back, whether you have an unruly pt you just can't control or there's a code blue and you just realized it's your room. No matter what kind of chaos a shift might bring, I have always found that the people there with me have made all the difference.
Lots of free pizza and AMMAZZZING Staff
No breaks, almost no raises, and frequently understaffed
