Sitter/Companions (Current Employee) – Cleveland, OH – April 8, 2016
It's always a busy day at UH. At UH, I learned how to properly take care of patients who require continuous observation at their bedside. The management at my job is very well organized. I love the co-workers I work with because there always there to help and show me things I may not know or need to improve on. The hardest part of my day is just taking the proper steps when may be dealing with a psych patient . I enjoy so much about my job, but the best part is just growing a friendship with my patients and just knowing that families feel I take care of my patients as if they are a family member of my own.

Patient Care Assistant/Administrative Secretary (Current Employee) – Cleveland, OH – March 29, 2016
A typical day at my work place is communicating with visitors and patients and making our work place feel like their home. I learned how to communicate with the vistors/patients in a way that will make them feel comfortable to talk to me about anything or ask any type of questions they may need answered. Management is awesome and so is my co-workers we all believe in team work, and we all work together as a team to get our job done. I work in the NICU, and the hardest part of my job is watching the babies go through so much to try to survive in this world. The most enjoyable part of my job is talking with families and uplifting them knowing that I did my part puts a smile on my face each and every day.

Registered Nurse Pediatric Float Pool (Current Employee) – Syracuse, NY – February 18, 2016
A typical day at work involves calling ahead to see what floor I am working on, then usually getting a 2-4 maximum patient assignment (depending on the unit). I work with lovely people who are always willing to help. The management has its ups and downs but overall are supportive. The physicians are helpful, knowledgeable and willing to teach. They are also appreciative of input from nursing staff which is a major plus in my book. I love the people I work will and all that I have learned while in this position!
Security Officer II (Former Employee) – Tamarac, FL – February 29, 2016

Being able to assist the Police officers gave me the opportunity to work as a team. My co-workers were very supportive and respectful.
Medical Technologist, Department of Microbiology (Current Employee) – Cleveland, OH – February 3, 2016
There is opportunity for aspired staff to develop more skills and co-workers are respective and work as a team. I had looked for opportunity to acquire skills in other areas of Microbiology. The manager was willing to train me into molecular testing, which is basically what I am doing now. There is also equal opportunity to learn all aspects of Microbiology.

Medical Laboratory Scientist (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 15, 2015
If you want to work in the Blood Bank here, think twice. Upper management doesnt know what they are doing, and the pay is not worth it to spend all of your life there. Also, no time and a half for overtime and staffing is very low. Not sure about how the other labs do it, but Im not happy with this place. Co-workers are constantly complaining about work conditions, but nothing is being done about it. There is new management so maybe it will change in time, but right now it is pretty dismal. The evil supervisor here finally got fired though, so that's a good thing. The culture from the top is work your life away and dont notice how bad you are compensated because that wont change.
Nursing Student (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – January 16, 2016

Program Assistant Coordinator (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – December 23, 2015
A typical day for me was very busy with administrative duties. Working with the public and individuals who are sick or have family members who are sick. Additionally I worked for the staff making sure that their calendars, staffing assignments were clear and documented correctly. I learned to always be pleasant and friendly so that those who are not having the same feelings would experience my positive attitude, friendly disposition and pleasant behavior. The hardest part of the job is when work became overwhelming and I needed additional help with the workload. I had to learn to manage my time better and ask for assistance when it was necessary. The enjoyable part of my job was receiving positive remarks and input about my work and completing task on time.
Variety in work and assignments.
When individuals became rude and difficult to manage.
