Overall, an excellent entry level job and work environment.
Pros: Very interesting work environment, good benefits/cafeteria food at reasonable prices, xlnt co-workers.
Cons: Long hours/day, hours/shift subject to change, many arrogant physicians lacking manners & common courtesy toward non-physician employees.
A semi-retired former executive and manager with a radiology background, I worked a consecutive 3-day/12 hour shift which I preferred. The Radiology Assistant position is a basic, entry level, physically demanding job which can be as mundane or interesting as you want to make it; and, occasionally exciting. It's an excellent people oriented, post-retirement job for an able bodied retiree or a HS grad interested in a potential healthcare career, as it exposes you to many areas of potential interest and study. There's limited opportunity for advancement without further study and/or certification, although that is possible even while working; and, there is opportunity to transfer/change job classification depending on qualifications. Although there's usually a rotten apple in every bushel, I can't say enough good about most all the people I had the opportunity to work with at UHS.
