Ambulatory Care Technician (Former Employee) – Madera, CA – September 18, 2017
no advancement. If you want to grow your career this might not be the place for you. You might be told you can advance you career here but most likely that will not happen. The best part of working here is the KIDS!
Security Officer (Former Employee) – 9300 Valley Childrens Pl. Madera Ca – July 1, 2017
If you have a family don't work here. They will own you. You will be called into work on you're days off or in the midel of the night and if you can't they will threaten and try and intimidate you to come in. I was let go because of medical problems and denied FMLA, LOA.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Madera, CA – May 12, 2017
While the pay is very good, there is no system in place for advancement. All supervisors are generally hired from outside the organization and internal promotions are extremely rare.
Independent thought and critical thinking are discouraged and all decisions are made by management. There is a culture of division between manager and subordinates. Employee suggestions are generally unwelcome unless they come from a supervisor or above.
There is a great deal of backstabbing that goes on in the Security department at the hospital.
Good pay, decent benefits for full time employees
Little to no opportunity to advance, insufficient training and equipment, constant personel shortages, aloof management, hospital staff typically look down on security as inferior.
Highly skilled nurses and therapists meeting the needs of critically ill children
Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Madera, CA – December 15, 2016
I love working at Valley Children's Hospital. I work with excellent dedicated people who strive to give the best care possible. The commitment and professionalism of my coworkers helps me stay focused and grounded. Yes, there is sadness when children die but there is also happiness when miracles happen. And yes, miracles do happen. I am a witness to these miracles.
Hospital Help (Former Employee) – Madera, CA – July 27, 2016
Beware of snakes in each and every department. Once you have a target on your target good luck getting rid of it. Management is horrible in some departments. Not to mention that HR department that leaks out personal information. The area I worked in very petty behavior both by workers and management. Overall, some employees are fantastic others stay away from.
HORRIBLE Management and horrible "professional" behavior
Analyst (Current Employee) – Madera, CA – May 26, 2016
Relaxed with a quiet environment in which to work. The work culture is progressing in the way documentation is handled; steadily moving to 100% electronic documentation. Management in my area is excellent! My co-workers are all professional and have significant experience and training in their respective disciplines. Hardest part of my job is hearing of the hard truths of pediatric healthcare. The most enjoyable part of my job is using data to help others understand where PI efforts are best placed.
competitive compensation. professional environment.
Admissions Counselor (Former Employee) – Madera, CA – October 17, 2015
I loved working a Children's Hospital of Central California, now know as Valley Children's Hospital. But there isn't alot of diversity at all. The staff isn't treated very well. There is really no room for advancement unless you know someone in the hiring process. I loved my job, but the management wasn't very fair. Favoritism was shown to some staff.
Pharmacy Buyer (Former Employee) – Madera, CA – September 24, 2015
Ensuring medication was ordered and received for all the patients. Follow-up on backorders and hard to get medication. Learned to be patience and what is considered a high priority. Management was fair and had awesome co-workers. The hardest part of working in a Children's Hospital is hearing about the loss of a child and the most enjoyable part of working in a Children's Hospital is when their is a life that was saved.
I really like working in the medical field and would like to stay in the medical field, but would also work for a business.
Volunteer Clerk for Urology (Former Employee) – Madera, CA – April 1, 2015
I would go into work every day I was scheduled and do just about the same routine job. I was very quiet at night and got to get a lot extra done, even cleaning. Also able to check on a few things and be able to make a list to give to the supervisor to let her know we needed certain products.
Working as a team
Working at night, but I got use to it. At night it was slow, kids slept.
