Medical Waste Handler (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – May 19, 2014
My day started at 7:00am,met with suprvisors on whatever information and orders for the day,also the hot areas in the hospital to give special attention to. I already had experience in working with the military because i myself was in United States Marine Corps. Maangement was easy to get along with, i had my differences at times, but overall i just did my job to the best of my ability,my co-workers were easy to get along with, yes, we had our issues,yet we maintain our morale it was very high. My greatest challenge was the dealing with all the different people at the hospital every, it was hard at first but i approach it head on and remain very positive, i love working at Walter Reed Medical Center
meeting all kinds of people
there were a few areas the military personnel were difficult to me.
Unified Communications Architect (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – June 24, 2016
I worked at WRNMMC as a contractor,The central mission of the command is the care of active duty military, dependents, retirees and wounded warriors. The hospital is the pinnacle of military medicine, has several centers of excellence, conducts leading edge research and supports training of the next generation of military medical providers.
It seemed to be a great hospital when I was working there. The dining choices are excellent.
Horrible place to work. Bad communication between co-workers and higher ups.
General Duty Corpsman (Medical Assistant) (Former Employee) – Bethesda, MD – June 22, 2016
Working at Walter Reed on the Internal Medicine/Surgical Ward was the foundation of my medical experience. While providing great staff, such as the CNAs, Nurses, and Doctors to work beside, it also provides wonderful clinical experience for anybody in the medical field. The greatest part of the job was interacting with so many different people and providing them with the help they needed.
I enjoy working at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. I have been there for almost 5 years and I have witnessed and participated in a lot of the development growth. Its also rewarding to know that your ultimate mission is to support our wounded warriors as they made the sacrifice to service our Country.
Training and continued development is encouraged
I want to utlize more of the training and skills that I've learned from PMI framework.
Contractors don't get paid well and contracts last for a year and salary will then take a dive.
Government Contractor - Medical Support Assistant (Current Employee) – Bethesda, MD – June 24, 2016
The people are friendly...management can be unfair to contractors. You cannot complain about treatment and expect results as a contractor. Options are to to find another contract position or leave. I have to believe that other federal agencies are more complete.
General Clerk II (Former Employee) – Bethesda, MD – March 30, 2016
During a typical day I supervise the front desk, greet the customers as they come in for meetings. The people I work with are very polite. The Management needs more communication as to how work needs to be completed in the office.
Here at Walter Reed the working expereience is truly one of a kind. You encoutner a lot of different people with different cultures as well as different personalities. The diversity is amazing and it feels good to give back to your country in some from of fashion.
Corpsman (Current Employee) – Bethesda, MD – December 9, 2015
Walter Reed is a medical facility. On a typical work day, all and most employees both civilians and military arrive at 0700.We see a minimum of 20 patients per day. Most of our patients are outpatients who come to this specific facility( National Intrepid Center of Excellence)for a 4 week physical and psychological evaluation and treatment program.
Management Analyst, Resource Management (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – November 2, 2015
So the actual Department I worked in was great, the Contractor was the issue. while they did pay well, their communication with direct department heads was horrible. To many contradictions when it came to job descriptions and direction of positions. Some of this may have been due to the impending closure and bidding wars, however it could have been handled much more professionally..
Great pay and benefits plus OT.
Communication between management and contractor needs work.
