Very rigid just best to be pleasant and just do your job. Talk on your breaks and lunches.
Per Diem Office Assistant/Short Assignment (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NV – November 1, 2013
Pros: lots of very nice staff, and other departments.
Cons: not enough time to get my work done to my liking. small discount in cafeteria.
Although the morale was poor, I always made it fun for me and people around me. Not all of us are able to work at the picture perfect employment, however I must for me remain diplomatic, nice and courteous. At times happiness is just a state of mind, I would try to make it as pleasant as possible with not DRAMA!!! Do not like to be negative their is – more... a resolution to any problem up to the person to seek it out!!! (THE PAY WAS ELEVATED ONLY BECAUSE OF BEING A PER DIEM STATUS) – less
Assistant Director (Former Employee), Lebanon,Tenn – October 19, 2013
Cons: short to no breaks, long hours, and no family life.
typically short handed. Not much assistance from management. Hardest part of the job was to do your job within deadlines and cover for call outs as well as areas not covered. What I enjoyed about the job was the ability to juggle the job to accomplish the task needed
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Lebanon, TN – September 24, 2013
Pros: good skill-building expierence
Cons: impossible to changefrom nights to days.
Most of the people there are great to work with and do their best to make the company better. Worked PCU/ICU. It seemed like staff members as a group had to answer for the actions of a few individuals. Very difficult to change shifts or departments/units
Food Service Aide/Cashier (Former Employee), Jackson, MS – September 23, 2013
Everything was non organized, co-workers were basically all over the place even though their job title was one thing but did every body else's job without the pay. Management wasn't good at all. The most enjoyable part of the job were the customers.
Eligibility Financial Specialist (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NV – September 11, 2013
Pros: pot lucks
I work for a department that is extremely micromanaged. The management are really not interested in the human component of the department only the bottom line. I really love working with my coworkers as they make it bearable and share in the work.
Productive place to work, great learning experience
Patient Attendant (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NV – September 9, 2013
Pros: schedule flexible with my school schedule, good benefits for those who have full time position.
Cons: if you're per diem, you have only limited hours to work
Working as a patient attendant (sitter) at UMC for the last 2 and 1/2 years has allowed me to gain a great insight into the medical field. I have been able to observe nursing skills and patient - nurse interactions without intruding. I have also gain an insight into which field / unit I would like to work in as an RN. Being a sitter, I have has the – more... opportunity to sit with all types of patients, including pediatric patients. I have also seen how nurse act with psychiatric and non-psychiatric patients, and have come to the conclusion that I would not like to work with psychiatric patients, since I have seen how after a certain amount of time, the nurse change how they interact with these patients. The hardest part of this job is having to watch patients who do not want to be watch and knowing I now have the skills to help these patients, but unfortunately I can't. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping some of the patients, for example one patient who had a stroke was learning to speak again. We sat for at least half an hour if not more learning the letters, ABCDE. Although this is not part of my job duties, it felt good being able to do something so simple, and the patient was happy that someone took time to help her with this simple task. Overall, being a sitter was a great job when I was studying for my RN degree, since it allowed me to work and have some study time and also they worked with me on my schedule. – less

The hours are good, the place is clean and well decorated, I enjoy my pt's. The co-workers are like family. The hardest part is seeing people not willing to take responsibilty for there health and where it leads them. I love it when pt's tell you haow much the appreciate what you do for them and for being concerned about there health
