This employer provides great benefits and perks. Lots of opportunity for growth. I have learned to become a patient person. I also learned how fragile life really is.

I enjoy treating the patron's as my guess and they was visiting my home.I know the pentagon isn't my personal home.But,I treated it a a home away from home.Because,once I clock into work,I'am ready to make sure everyone have a great day like mine's and don't have to worry about having their work space untidy.Because I'am on the job to handle that part.I was very thankful for Didlake for given me the opportunity to do so.
A typical day at work consist of greeting patients. Verifying insurance, answering phones, triage. The most valuable thing I learned working here is to always prepared to respond to crisis situations. Always worked as a great team with my co workers. We all learned different things from one another. The hardest part of the job sometimes is being patient with impatient people, who are very rude. The most enjoyable part of the job is making sure people are happy and are in great care of at all times. Always assuring the patients they are in good hands.

If you're young and looking for a great first job experience in a hospital setting, then this is a great place for you! The volunteer staff are so friendly, and the responsibilities attained give you a great idea of what the job market will hold in the future. I highly recommend working in the ER; there's never a dull moment, and interacting with the nursing staff is valuable if you're considering a career in that field.
Great work environment, numerous responsibilities, never bored

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.

The most enjoyable part were the people I worked with.
