The UMMC was one of, if not the best, jobs i have ever had. while working there, i have learned my way around hospitals, the meaning of different signs,and much more. The mangers and co workers were like family i have grown to love. The job itself wasn't complicated at all,and it was enjoyable as a whole.

Great academic center
Clinical Nurse II (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDApril 25, 2014
Hours are flexible...work 4 9-hour shifts, no weekends, no holidays.
I have learned a great deal about anesthesia management of patients undergoing surgery and have the flexibility in my day to learn about different procedures, disease processes and management by looking them up online. The hardest part of my job is functioning in a management role while still carrying a full workload. The most enjoyable part is interacting with staff to collaborate care for pre-op clients.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDDecember 5, 2013
Pros: feel free
Cons: love ones lost
Working at Ummc was a blessing I never seen so many people from all over the world til I work there. I learned so much that words cant explain. The hardest part of my job was when you make friends, with some of the people who are illness and they pass on. The most enjoyable part about Ummc is when we was able to help or even save a person life.

Very Busy Place with a lot going on
Patient Transport Aide (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDApril 21, 2013
Pros: good benefit package, inside restarant, plenty of learning opportunities its wonderful for that
Cons: compensation isn't good even with experience, high risk for injury on the job, and transporting the deceased (that is a part of the job description period)
I worked as a Transport Aide which in itself is a fine entry level job and is even better if you enjoy moving around and have a genuine compassionate nature for helping those sick people who need you to get them where they are going in a timely manner. However, I will be very honest and blunt in saying that it is an extremely physical position and you are expected to get these people by bed (which are heavy), stretcher and wheelchair and back to back according to the tracking system. Its extremely busy and there will be many times where nursing or other technicians in charge of where you have to pick up or drop off a patient will be upset with you but they don't really understand how busy it is on your part having to get patients back to back with no resting period (especially if you on the day shift). Try your best no one in other departments can truly understand the life of a transporter unless their in it. Oh, and be warned that there will be times that occur where its so busy you'll be pushing a patient by yourself in a heavy bed because a tea member may be caught up in their own transport or whatever (and if u get injured their will be no mercy for you). You will get rushed & u will get reprimanded for being slow. Oh, and Stretchers & Wheelchairs are nothing to push especially when you use proper body mechanics (those mechanics are not taught to you but you had better learn them) And dont be afraid to tell a Nurse, Tech or Supervisor that you need assistance with your patient when things are taking too long and you don't feel safe pushing by yourself because technically your not. But I had been given the crazy look plenty of times because others will feel like its not their job. The Hospital is huge and the hallways your pushing down are basically city blocks. You have been warned. But I did Love it there and still believe it to be a wonderful learning place where you can grow if your are on the path to do so.
