Valuable learning experience, while caring for patients.
Charge/Staff Nurse - Emergency Department (Former Employee), Washington, DC – April 8, 2015
Cons: Short or no breaks
Typical day was busy! Learned compassion for disabled patients, physical and mental. Management was better than most jobs I had prior to this experience. Co-works were the best. We were a team in every way and after moving on to other jobs for various reasons, we are still in touch socially. The hardest part of the job was rarely getting a lunch break. The most enjoyable part were the people I worked with.

My foundation as a CVT was built at this hospital. One of the best cardiac cath labs in the country. Very busy, cutting-edge, and world class care. I would recommend anyone interested in cardiology to consider this facility.

Unit Clerk (Current Employee), Fremont, CA – October 20, 2014
My typical day at work is usually busy and if I have a little down time I like to be productive as much as I can. The management and co-workers are great at Washington Hospital. They are pleasant and provide great team work. The hardest part of the job is making sure not to make mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes and learn from them. In order to prevent mistakes I like to double check my work every time. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping the people in need, putting a smile on their face and show them they are important. One thing I have learned in a hospital setting is everyone needs to be treated with respect.

The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the volunteers. The staff and co-workers were very friendly.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Washington, PA – August 12, 2014
Pros: benefits & salary
Cons: poor attitudes from co-workers & management, short staffed, favortism from management team.
I worked at Washington Hospital for 6 years. The pay and benefits are excellent but the work atmosphere will send you home with anxiety, You can be the best worker in the hosptial but if you are not a favorite then you get no recognition at all. The young and attractive get all the good shifts and weekends off and they are among the laziest because they know they still get what they want and others will do their job for them to avoid conflict. I still have nightmares and anxiety daily when thinking about how I was treated.
