Pediatric Scheduler (Current Employee), Jackson, MS – June 16, 2014
My past job experiences were good. I like jobs that I can explore more job opportunities in and a job that requires multitasking. I am looking for a job that I can grow in. I held one job where i became an assistant manager within 3 months. Teh hardest part of any job to me is starting off learning all new things. The most enjoyable part of a job is – more... when you have your job duties down packed and can work with expertise and be proficient with your work. – less

Oversight, in the billing and coding departments, is seriously lacking, to the point of being a legal liability. However, lower-level management tries their best to create a comfortable work environment, – more... and most of the employees are good people, that are easy to get along with. It's not a bad place to work, as long as you don't question what you're told. – less

There are no typical days in the ER. Learned I wanted to become a nurse. The co-workers are a rare group of people who I will have a special place in my heart. The hardest part was consoling love ones. I love the excitement, education, and things never seen or told.
