Departmental Secretary II (Former Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – December 14, 2015
Worked at WFU School of Medicine for almost 10 years and was a good worker. Went back to college and finished. And, when I wanted to get back on... it was impossible... I was 40 years old!
I could not believe it... I applied to 100 different jobs... Received 2 interviews. I went back to visit co-workers and noticed that most... employees were very young. I lowered my salary to entry level and still no interviews.
Still do not believe... just walk down the halls. you will pass "young people".
Used to be a great place to work, but not anymore.

If you are older than 50, you will have no job security. Poor management. Managers who have personal agenda's, including blatant racism. Becoming a financially RICH institution is the goal, it is no longer about patient care.
This place is cold towards employees. Years ago, employee appreciation was top notch. This is no longer the case. You can and will be replaced.
Training is a joke here. You basically have to train yourself. And as another reviewer stated, if you ask for additional training, you are denied, and quickly reprimanded for poor job performance.
This is how I lost my job. Poor to non-existant training.
After over four decades of top notch service to this institution, I was escorted out the door, and was further denied unemployment, nearly destroying my life.
low morale, managers with little compassion and intregity, racism, age related dismissals
The Public Health Sciences Department of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is a quality employer. The department fits somewhere in the area between academics and business, so the stress level isn't always running high. However, the pay level reflects this.
Various Clerical Positions (Current Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – March 3, 2015
Can be very stressful at time and stay busy all day. Working together as a team can make the job much easy. Co-workers are very nice, at times we have fun together. the hardest part of the job is getting up and down all day to retrieve faxes and faxing patient's medical record request, especially when there is some many pages to be retrieved. The most enjoyable part of the job is type of work and the people that I worked with. I worked in the Cancer Center and seeing som many people with this disease( I learned that we should never Complain).

have to work a lot of overtime although management denies this. People are being terminated for no reason so they do not have to pay for unemployment. Management is inept so the staff has no support to back them up. No education. You are expectedto learn your job on your own. Very stressful. If you request further education it is denied and held against you as being unable to perform the job . Making up the hospitals debt by removing benefits and lowering salaries. Once a nurse is let go a younger less experienced nurse is put him their place and a much lower salary is given.

No more job security at this location. They are lying to the media. People are back stabbing and everyone is scared they are going to get laid off. A lot of people have lost their jobs, people have been forced to retire, and others have been walked out by security when fired for stupid reasons so they could not get paid unemployment. Stay away from Baptist!!! Cutting pay and cutting corners because they are in dept.
The moral compass of the PI is disconcerting. Minorities are given backhanded opportunities, there is a lack of fiscal transperency, retatialiation.
Research Fellow and Alum (Former Employee) – Wake Forest University Health Sciences – September 5, 2014
Minorities beware any opportunities are backhanded. PIs are not transparent about what they are doing with your grant and there is no data sharing. Control your own grants or you will find that more than likely minority money will be dispersed to unfortunate privileged majority, while your credentials are sacrificed and you are dismissed. Do not take my word for it, try them.
no benefits, no childcare, retaliation, character assassination.
Teamwork was exemplary. Very caring and compassionate professionals who truly cared about their patients and providing superb services. I'd highly recommeded friends and family to Wake Forest's Audiology Department after seeing first hand how well they provided for their patients.
teh position was only temporary as needed for filling in while otheres were on maternity leave
CNA II (Former Employee) – 5 East Ardmore – February 12, 2015
I worked at Baptist starting in August 2014. I thought it would be a good fit. I did my job and enjoyed doing it. I worked as a CNA. The nurses on my floor "claimed" I was a good CNA...But behind my back it was something different. I had a feeling. But NOT once did the supervisor come to me with problems or concerns. I came to work everyday..NEVER missed a day. Until I got the flu shot right before my shift. I worked hard..that night and got sick..I tried to keep working but I couldnt..my CHARGE nurse encouraged me to go home...that it will be "OK"...So nothing is said until 2 weeks later.. I come to work on a Monday...I overheard a CNA tell my co worker..that we were getting another CNA on our floor...after that convo..My manager comes get me...and basically FIRED me..HER REASON...my "ABSENCES"...MIND YOU I was never absent only left early once..In the 2 weeks prior to my termimation...my supervisor NEVER called me or asked to discuss things... Oh and the NEW CNA that was come to our floor?My replacement......do not come here..management sucks. Your job is not secure. Nurses can play Candy Crush all night and duck their patients..and ignore important vitals...Good riddance I have a job with REX paying $2 more per hour.
