Surgical Technician (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – March 23, 2016
Oriantation was amazing wonderful upbeat staff learned alot felt like I new where to go in need of assistance. Department oriantation was very informative felt up to date on procedures and paper work. Unfortunately to much department gossip accusations and favoritism. Back stabbing and twisted stories and stereotyping. Staff that have been there for 20 years never give new employees a chance to excel as being threatened by new educational procedures and new flow. Unfortunately in the state of Nevada a company can separate there employment with no reason as I was given based on there personal opinion I was not fit. This is my personal experience and others may have a different view but I believe it depends on department and management. Also as a union Hospital you have choices, as I felt I didn't because one of my choices given was not the right one what was better for my family and that didn't work for management.

Purchasing Agent/Buyer (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – January 8, 2016
I truly enjoyed working at UMC. Very professional and the 2 supervisors I had were sensational. Very professional, caring and loving people. The work hours were great, which still provided family time and being a team player was hands down awesome.
Free lumch sometimes from the sales reps organized by our supervisors.
I had fun working for this company, however, I didn't have much advancement. The co workers were great but I needed a job that would help me achieve my future goals. I didn't have benefits offered at the time I was here and I needed benefits.
Bone and Joint Specialist (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – November 20, 2015
Was a great learning experience. Worked all shifts as needed. Great learning of insurances and deductibles. UMC is a county hospital so worked with homeless patients all the way up to CEO's. Worked closely with nursing staff and physicians.
good working experience of working the emergency and trauma room.
Managment was not always available to help with unusual situations.
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – November 15, 2015
typical day is following orders written by doctors following protocols specific to patient disease process and floor therapy learned patient care specific to Cystic Fibrosis patients. Coworkers were very helpful since I was a new grad Hardest part of job was the technical knowledge need and the fact that I was a new grad and inexperienced at putting book knowledge and actual real world experience together at the same time Most enjoyable part was after time feeling my confidence grow from learning how to combine school knowledge and actual patient care
LPN (Former Employee) – Lebanon, TN – October 30, 2015
Upper management mostly worried about profit and patient surveys. Neglected actual patient safety and employee satisfaction. Director often was concerned with politics and as most are in management, however co-workers and clinical manager were excellent.
Patient Access Rep (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – October 20, 2015
Care for the patients is one of the important values of the University Medical Center of New Orleans. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my colleagues and learning from them. The office started to get crowded as the company grew.
Great place to work they care about their employee's
Central Stores Supervisor (Former Employee) – Lubbock, TX – October 6, 2015
Getting supplies to each department in a timely manner to take care of patience was the most important part of the job. I learned from Leadership training conflict resolution and how to work with the employee's for cooperation and satisfied employee's. Management was there to help in any way they could. Hardest part of this job was to keep 72 hours of supplies on the floor at all times. Happy customer comments. We went from a rating of 1 to 5 which was the highest in 2 1/2 years of my 5 years working for the company.
